lots of activity. Happening place for gatherings.

Can be a bit noisy. Great brews. Food variety and quality good but nothing exceptional. Typical to any pub

We have been here several times, but it definitely is not for everyone, we found it quite noisy, crowded, very much a young crowd hangout.

I always get the smoked tri-tip sandwich when I stop here on a trip. The salad that comes with it is very good, also. The beer is terrific, goes well with the sandwich. I like the relaxed atmosphere.

If you're on 101 and passing through Fortuna, you owe it to yourself to stop here. They have a really solid beer list (I liked the Russian Imperial, my wife favored the American Lager). The food is very reasonably priced and the portions are very large. The fried fish, chicken, and shrimp are all very good, as are the baked... More

Enjoyed a great meal and had awesome service provided by Stephanie. Even though my wife and I don't drink alcohol it was a good place to go. Nice atmosphere and not overly loud. We had a rueben sandwich and fish/chips, both very tasty. Stephanie gave us good advise on local sites. Would definitely eat there again!

We stopped here recently to try their craft beers and have a light meal. There is a good selection of beer and a we enjoyed a few different ones while munching on some tasty appetizers, the baked potato skins and chicken tenders were particularly nice. The servers were friendly and efficient even though the place was very busy.

My daughter and I were recently traveling through this area and stopped here for lunch. We enjoyed dining al fresco on the outdoor patio on a sunny, beautiful autumn day. I had the burger basket with coleslaw and my daughter enjoyed the Mac-n-cheese. We each had a cold pint of their craft beer. We enjoyed great service from Leslie! They... More

They have really good beer, according to my husband. I can't have the beer but I can attest to good gluten free food. Our waitress knew about gluten restrictions and was able to make some yummy recommendations.

Had a hard time finding a late dinner at a reasonable price in Ferndale. Ended up driving all the way over to check out this place, and it was worth the trip. We had a bit of a wait (15 minutes) at about 6:30 pm, but once we were seated, service was prompt and friendly. Cajun burger, fish and chips... More

Great place to stop after long day driving. Hotels next door great food and atmosphere. Great beer and if you're not into that their night menu has excellent choices eat here when ever I come on business.
