Lots of beer choices

Beer and wine only - not a full bar. This pub fits the bill in most ways. Our service was good. The food was good to pretty good. The ribs were tasty and ample. I can't eat that much anymore. A bit noisy for conversation.

Been looking forward to going to this place for awhile. Was disappointed in the food and prices. Ordered the stuff mushrooms; which, came cold like just out of the the frigerator. Sent back and the watched the guy put his fingers all over them to check it, and 10 minutes later got the same plate back and was worse. Don't... More

I had a pulled pork sandwich and it was good size and delicious. It came with a small salad and was very filling along with the sandwich. Husband had senior/kids shrimp and side. He had Irish Stew as his side, not sure what made it Irish, but he said it was great. The restaurant is loud, but that is to... More

Great food and great outdoor patio and beer garden! We were traveling through the Redwood Forrest and decided on this restaurant because of the reviews. Definitely pleased! We were a large party of 11 and everyone was happy with their orders. I highly recommend the beer sampler (it's pretty big just a heads up).

Not a place to go for a quiet dinner, but if you want great food, good service in a fun setting, this is your place. The food, which is pub food was really good, I would return here anytime. The waitress was attentive and friendly.

This restaurant was next door to our hotel and recommended by the desk clerk since it was where the locals ate. Probably because there is nothing else to do but sit around and drink beer. The service was terrible, with our having to flag down our server for drink refills while waiting for our meals. Once the meals arrived an... More

Friendly and efficient staff. Varied menu, something for everyone. A bit load inside. Large outdoor patio. Resident patio cats to entertain you.

Got into Scotia late (8:30ish) and the 'kid' at the front desk recommended we drive another 10 minutes to Fortuna as are more places to choose from than in Scotia. We ended up here at the Eel River Brewing Co . . . my Salmon was dry and my son's steak was bland . . . but we ate it... More
