Very nice place, on the water, live music, jazz, very enjoyable. The food was very good. Clam chowder soup. Combo fish plate. And the ciopinno was a bit disappointing, lots of clams and very little of everything else. The waitress worked hard, and she brought...the food out pretty fast, but forgot to bring us the ice bucket... for the wine. All in all, recommended!!More

This popular restaurant has great food (homemade bread and desserts!), nice ambience and friendly, professional staff. If you have to wait for a table, you'll be glad you did! The only downside is that parking can be a challenge during busy times.

Service was slow and lousy, food was overpriced and mediocre and the live music wasn't great. The tiny house neighborhood is very cool though.

My husband was served a maggot infested burger tonight. How does this happen???!? Got some shrugs and some apologies but this was NOT RICE as one server tried to claim !!! Rice does not have segments or cluster together. I’m sick beyond belief. I’m sorry...but this is a serious health issue. I’ve never seen anything like this anywhere in the world. I may never eat meat again. I only hope California health investigates after my call.More

Limited menu. Takeout or order to eat outside on patio. But some of the best, freshest seafood to be found on the north coast. We had the fish and chips. Crust was light and crisp. Fish tender and flaky. Long lines at lunch to place...order, although line moves fast.More

It was raining but we decided to eat outside under the tent by a heater. Food was great, especially the breaded scallops. Waitress was friendly & efficient. There was live music. They are also dog friendly here (at least when eating outside, not sure about...inside).More

Indoor and outdoor seating. Limited number of tables indoors. For dinner had the fish & chips which was very good tho the pieces were small. Cole slaw was very good, on the drier side. Chips average. Fried calamari done very well

We ate here for lunch on a recent trip to Northern California. We saw the reviews and thought we would give it a try. It is also close to our hotel. We sat outside behind a clear windbreak so we could see the river and...out to the ocean. Since the temp was in the 50's, they had the gas heaters fired up which kept us warm enough on this beautiful sunny day. My wife and I each had the clam chowder and split a fish and chips. The clam chowder was a little disappointing. It seemed to have a sweet taste that was a little off-putting. However, the fish made up for any other shortcomings. It was flaky, moist and full of flavor. The chips were large and very hot coming to the table. Definitely worth the stop.More

Located in the Noyo Harbor, this restaurant is hidden back behind a trailer park. rear food and warm friendly service. We ate dinner outside under their heated tent where it was comfortable. Live music (single guitar/vocalist) was fun. Grilled Salmon was cooked just right, not...overdone and delicious. Prawn Fettuccine special was generous hot and tasty. This is a great find we look forward to visiting in the future.More

Such a great find!! We saw the glowing lights from the bridge and felt called to the Noyo River Harbor. Looking back at the harbor, from beneath the bridge, the lights continued to beckon. It took some time to navigate through the buildings, but it...was really worth it. Live music, delicious food, warm heaters, and safe social distancing in the outdoor seating area. Loved the cioppino!!More

This place came highly recommended, but I was disappointed there weren't more fish choices. Lovely to sit next to the harbor on a sunny afternoon. Wait staff was friendly.

After a so-so dinner at another place in the same area, we decided to drive a little farther down the road the next day and were glad we did. We arrived early for dinner (about 4:30) and were told to pick any of several available...tables. We opted for one indoors and had a decent view of the harbor despite the tents set up for dining on the dock. Our server, Jessica, was prompt, attentive and personable. We both ordered the Rock Cod Piccata and received generous, perfectly cooked portions. There was no need to ask for another plate of warm bread. Jessica was on the spot with it as soon as the first plate ran low. We'll skip the other place but will definitely return to the Noyo River Grill next time we're in Fort Bragg.More

We were looking for a nice, dog friendly restaurant by the harbor. Noyo River Grill was a great place. We took our dog and sat outside in the sun. The fried calamari appetizer was very good, lightly battered, served with a citruisy sweet and sour...sauce. Hubby had the Noyo burger which he said was real good. I had the shrimp and chips but substituted a salad. The battered shrimp was nicely cooked and the salad was a very nice mix of leafy greens. The house ranch dressing was good. It was apparent there was a chef and not just a cook at Noyo River Grill. The prices were what you pay at a nice restaurant. We highly recommend this restaurant.More
