We shared the fish and chips and a salad. Liked it a lot even though there could have been a bit more seasoning on the fish. Nice portion size.

Good service, good menue (not too large, not confusing), good cook, small but great selection of wines

We had a dinner here. Was very disappointed. Yes the view is nice and nice atmosphere. I ordered the chicken Marsala. It was flavorless. Mashed potatoes tasted pasty. Like there was flour in them. Husbands soup wasn’t any better. I know I ate breakfast here...More

Great view, friendly service, and good food...what more can one ask? Has both inside and outside seating. We have taken children there but the ambience is more adult

This is the only pace to have a great view of the headlands and cliffs when having a meal or drinks. Actually, we thought it was better for drinks and snacks than for dinner. Just a bit pricier than what the food was worth, but...More

Before return home from a weekend in mendocino/fort Bragg, we stopped and had breakfast at flows. The food was excellent and so was the service. I highly recommend this place.

The service was on par but the food was terrible. We had the steamers as starters which turned out to be the best item we ordered. The seafood pasta was avg good, there was too much butter in the risotto and the fish and chips...More

Epic view of the Pacific and Mendocino Bay. Deck and bay window views. Fresh, local, organic cuisine, skillfully blended by chef Matt Samuelson. Whale watching from our second-story view, December through May. Beautiful sunsets most evenings. A great place place to drink, dine and watch the sea and sky float by. Full bar with local wines, beers and specialty drinks. House-made breads and desserts. Kid's menus and drinks. Please be our guest. We look forward to serving you.
