This place is a lot of fun! Usually pretty busy, especially after work = 5pm. A favorite watering hole for the locals. Also four fairly large motels and a large RV campground nearby, so lots of business! If you don't want a party atmosphere I'd recommend going for lunch. GREAT organic beer! I LOVE the porter and the amber ale.... More

Got food to go, as it did seem very very busy inside the establishment. We did see families coming and going, but a bit too busy for us. We had fish and chips, chicken strips and chips, it was hot, flavorful and excellent!

I am not a beer drinker, so I can only rate the food and atmosphere. We haven't eaten there in several years because we found the food to be only so-so. I checked the February 2014 because I couldn't pick an earlier date. There are picnic tables outside. The inside seems to be mostly large tables and remind me more... More

Avoid. The food was appaling. I ordered from the dinner specials list. " Chicken & Dumplings." It was not edible. I could not cut the chicken slab with a knife, and chewing it was out of the question, it was like trying to eat a piece of a tire. I had to spit it into my napkin. The glop it... More

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.
