relaxing afternoon drinking craft beer and wine

Met so very friendly people to talk to , had a nice meal of bbq ribs steak . Would have very much enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio but it was just to chilly for us.

Good beer and equally good food. The smoked trip tip French dip with the porter was a wonderful dinner.

We had a good experience at the restaurant. busy for a Tuesday - obviously popular with locals. Our server, Beth was very helpful and friendly. We had the platter of fried chicken, fish and shrimp which was very well prepared and melted in your mouth. Not greasy. Delicious. A good offering of bears brewed in their own building. Good experience

Great food sp. burgers n chicken wings. Friendly servers. Award winning locally brewed beer. I love their flavored iced tea. Warning . . . Always full of people though, but the wait is worth it.

Great menu, excellent variety , large area and the food is excellent. The service is good and you will not walk away hungry. I am not a drinker but I was told the beers were great too. This is the place to eat in Fortuna. Come here... you won't be disappointed

I had the Ravenseye Imperial Stout and that was VERY good, burger was huge and delicious, and the halibut & chips also very good - moist fish, not dry at all. We watched a number of dishes go by, all of the huge. Since it is a brew pub, it IS very noisy. If it had been warmer, outside would... More

Eel River was one of those spots that had been on my list for a while, mainly because occasionally their beers show up on taps in Portland. Going all organic can't be cheap, thus you've got to applaud their efforts for that alone. But they earn the applause, brewing some top notch suds. The joint was packed when I went... More

Our hotel suggested this restaurant for our family of 4. We were not expecting such good food but it was amazing! It was a bit noisy but fresh, awesome food. I have gluten and dairy restrictions and they were able to accommodate. (I don't have to worry about cross contamination like many do so be cautious.) While I couldn't try... More
