Ok, maybe not since we were not from the area. But the staff was still nice and polite. It is a bar, that serves all kinds of food, small and cozy. Totally had that small town feel but that is a great thing, that's what tourist do when you come to small towns, you want the whole small town... read more

Stopped in for a late dessert. My wife had the blackberry cobbler and I had the apple cobbler (both served ala mode). Blackberry was too tart and the crest was difficult to break through with a spoon. The apple was pretty good. Service was prompt and friendly.

We were visiting from out of town and stopped by to eat lunch. This is really a small place but was cozy. Peanuts to eat while waiting for food or snacks with drinks. The food was just so-so. The fish and chips were okay but the chicken strips were blah. Cash only, so leave the credit card. ATM on site.

Welcoming staff. Great dinner (Burger, heirloom tomatoes, sweet potato fries). Dessert (blackberry cobbler) could use some improvement.

went here for dinner and breakfast, had great service both times, and food was good and reasonably priced. Nice selection of beers, not too overwhelming, lots of sports on multiple TV screens. CASH ONLY!!! The reuben sandwich was very good, as were the fish and chips for dinner. The bloody Marys for breakfast are some of the best I have... More

This is a popular place as it serves REAL food not greens and overpriced baby food so it is packed early. The specials are terrific and the portions huge. Here's a tip: find someone to share it with and it becomes even less expensive. We had the trip tip sandwich and the BBQ platter, excellent food, good service and we... More

Patterson's Pub is busy and noisy with excellent wait staff and good food to go with a nice selection of microbrews from California and Oregon. When at its busiest, you will have the option to be seated with other couples, which we did and which added pleasantly to the experience. Pizza for me and a burger for the spouse were... More

Killer nachos tasted good, received a nice size portion and was a decent price. Husband drank a local IPA. The service we received was also really great as well :)

Kind of a working people's bar and restaurant. Lots of locals stopping in for a drink to a chat or a meal or all of the aforementioned. Great service, great atmosphere, good food/drink and fair price. We came aeveral times while staying in Mendocino and always had a great meal. Fish tacos were my favorite. Pasta, salads, wraps, appetizers and... More

we felt somewhat uncomfortable here among a rather unwelcoming-feeling crowd who didn't seem to like travelers infringing on their local bar. Lots of people doing shots and a beer then heading out the door, which made me glad we weren't driving anywhere that night.
