A place for good beer and pub food with a great outdoor dining area. A nice place to stop on the way to Eureka and Arcata

We love our local brew pub! It is also the favorite for travelers on vacation here or just passing through. The beer is not only delicious but made from local organic ingredients. They offer at least 6 to 8 brews on tap. Service has always been excellent. The food is very good to excellent. My favorite is their pulled pork... More

This brewery/restaurant has great beer. Try the Blonde Ale for starters. The brewing equipment is viewed from the bar and restaurant. There is also a very nice garden with benches and pergola and a brewery cat. The food is artisan pub fair. We've had very good and mediocre meals there. The good outweighs the bad and the organic ales and... More

We were hopeful when we arrived, seemed like a fun place. Got seats at the bar so decided to eat there instead of waiting for a table. A server go our drinks, brought menus, but went & got someone else to take our order. The bar is not very big, and just the 2 servers. We waited & waited for... More

This is my second visit to the Eel River brewery. I can highly recommend the giant garden salad, but everything else has been just so-so in terms of food. Great outdoor seating.

A visit to the Eel River Brewing Company in Fortuna CA. was not good for our group. We had a group of 17, connected only by friendship, and the management would not accommodate our needs at all. Management wanted to give us only one bill and let us figure out the rest and they would only take two credit cards,... More

drove from Sacramento to stay at Fortuna and checked out several of the restaurants. we weren't sure about this one but it turned out to be the best ever. the wine was great not expensive. the halibut was fresh, the tartar sauce was wonderful and the garlic cheese fries were over the top. they have a steak special every night...

Love their outside dining area. Horseshoes, bench seating, cool atmosphere. Inside is great too and staff couldn't be friendlier. We had Ali as our server and she just knocked it out of the park. Whole staff seemed to really dig working there. Came in for drinks on peanut night. Just a cool place to check out when visiting up North.

It's a Brewery, so it lives up to that, the Brew is good, something for every taste. Average Bar type food. Service was horrible, not sure why, we were there mid-week, non-Holiday, place wasn't super packed, very we don't care about service attitude. A Group of us - we ordered several pitchers, had to beg for glasses,finally went to the... More
