It's a great restaurant to stop by

We were on our way to Eureka. We wants to try something in this area and we found this place. The food quality is good. The beers are really good. The staff are ok. Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely stop by again if I go on this road at another time.

Over seasoned greasy fries. Salad lettuce was old and browning. Bathroom was filthy...not a family friendly environment if you have younger children.

The inside was full so we ate outside. The service was quick and the waiters knowlege about beer was awsome. The food was good and came hot. The selection of cold beers was really good. We would definately go here again when we come through the area.

At best this restaurant was just ok. Sandwiches were very dry. Fries were very over seasoned. Charged extra for a side of ranch dressing.

Stopped by from on the road. Delicious smoky pulled pork. Friendly waitress. Too bad we were driving or we would have tried the brews. Will look for it in the stores.

This was walking distance from our motel. We had lunch and dinner here. Both were fantastic. Their craft beers are second to none, wine list is decent for a brew pub. I had a pasta special with shrimp,scallops and halibut in a cajan sauce, fantastic. Will go back again before we leave.

Pub food and good beer. Obviously a favorite of locals who like microbrew. Near motels and river walk. Glad it was close by.

If you want a pub this is the place. There are plenty of flat screen TVs with a large, noisy crowd, and good beer. The food is standard pub fair. It is hearty and served with enthusiasm, but you won't ask for the recipe. The hair that came in the onion rings left us feeling scalped.

A nice selection of salads, daily fresh fish specials, and the usual pub food favorites add up to an enticing and varied menu. Local brews will please the aficionado. A fun and lively atmosphere makes the Brewery a good stop.

We stayed two doors down at the Redwood Fortuna Riverwalk Hotel. We walked over to Eel River both nights for dinner we were in town. They have an extensive bar food menu, but in my opinion go for the chicken strips. They are battered like fish and chips and are finger lickin good! Service was top notch. Very welcoming and...
