“A Pleasant Surprise for New Year's Eve 2011 Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

While on a motorcycle tour of the Trinity Alps we assumed we were going to be in for pizza or fast food for our new year's eve dinner. We were pleasantly surprised when several of the locals recommended this place but they weren't sure it would be open that night.

It was open and it was a great meal. Service was equally great and the atmosphere was very relaxing with lots of hisory surrounding you.

“Memorable Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Stopped here after leaving a really grotty motel ( we hadn't booked ahead) in Eureka. No food available there so we were really hungry. Food at Cinnabar Sam's is plentiful and there is a good choice. I loved the atmosphere and the artefacts, which seemed to be real, from the days of the old west, and were all connected with mining and hunting.

“Fun place, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010

The decor was interesting, lots of old-time objects. Food was quite good, with good-sized portions. We were just in the area for one night, but this was a good dinner choice.

“Good eats in Willow Creek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2007

Stayed in Willow Creek for one night. Read a review of Cinnabar Sams Restaurant and decided to try it. It was WAY better than expected. Nice and clean. Interesting decorations - ie:prospecting tools, etc......Staff is young and friendly. Food was real good. Prices were very reasonable. I would sugest going for dinner as I would return again if I ever find myself back in Willow Creek :)
