First thing that goes without saying is the beer menu is stellar. Our bartender/waiter was great, he even aerated the wine my wife ordered..the menu had a decent amount or Gluten Free items and the burger (Cajun) was cooked to order and fabulous..we will definitely be back!!

My boyfriend and I had dinner here while staying around the corner at the Redwood Fortuna Riverwalk Hotel for a night, and were so happy we stumbled onto it. It came highly recommended by our hotel's staff, and was exactly what we were looking for: a casual, fun place with local food to enjoy after a long day of driving,... More

After a long day driving up the coast were ready to eat and drink and walk back to our hotel. Great recommendation. Interesting brews and very reasonable prices. Our server suggested a combo of 2 brews. Who would have thought that was a good idea! Big portions and fast service. If you are in the Humbolt Redwoods give it a... More

We have been customers at this place for over 10 years. For the most part, we have always concluded that it is really the only edible food in Fortuna. They have always been mostly friendly and accommodating, and since we are locals, we know most of the staff anyway. Over the years, We have had good food, okay food, bad... More

Every few years I eat at Eel River. Every few years I say to myself I'll never eat here again. Love the Beer especially the organic IPA. If they only could cook as good as they brew.

After a long day of driving in rainy California, we arrived at our hotel where this restaurant was highly recommended. The "happy hour" had good house wine at $4. Everyone appeared to be drinking beer, but I had the wine. All you can eat fish and chips were great. The tri tip dinner was delicious too with really nice curry... More

Rather plain with a local crowd. Nice people. Didn't try the beer garden but it looks nice. When you travel it is hard to get fresh vegetables and this isn't a place for that. Pulled pork sandwich and fries are the fare to expect and it is really tasty. Right off 12 St exit from Highway 101. Nice pit stop... More

We stopped here enroute to Arcata. Being 10 minutes from Stone's beer garden at home, this is what I wish Stone still was. This is casual, non "affected" and all about the beer - and customers. We only tried the beer but will definately come back next trip.

This place pub atmosphere with a good variety delicious pub food, but it is a sprawling gathering place too. It is a fun, noisy place. Nice people abound. Maybe not the place the go for a cozy evening for two.

Good beer and good food and they don't rush you. They were busy for dinner and I asked if I can get a seat by the bar they offered me a table of four so i'm not stuck at the bar with unwanted company. Ordered a beer and I told them that i would like a have a couple of... More
