Having only sipped such savory hand crafts as guests taps elsewhere, coming upon the actual Eel River brewery in the flesh was quite the treat....prompting an immediate detour off the highway! Wise decision! The Acai Wheat and Blonde Ale are perfect for a hot summer day...or any other for that matter. Elevated pub grub to accompany the great beer list.... More

The food was adequate but not my cup of tea. I'm also not a beer drinker. The service was great and it looked like the families were having a great time. I would go there again.

This is a beach joint for groups of younger people. It is not a restaurant; its bar is beer & wine, cheap wine at that. My food was mediocre but the place was close to my hotel. Were I ever in Fortuna again, I would avoid this place. It just feels like an old, greasy spoon place with sloppy staff,... More

Our hotel was 2 doors away from this restaurant, but we also knew we wanted to pick up some Acai Berry beer for the family as well. We sat outside for our meal; we asked them to turn the heater on for us while we were eating, it got chilly. While the location is a Brewing Company and has a... More

We arrived about 7pm and the restaurant was mobbed but there was lots of staff on duty and tables were cleared and cleaned quickly ready for the next customers. There was a wide choice on the menu including local foods. I personally don't drink alcohol but my husband does and he was quite impressed by the choice.

Discovered this place last year and since we stayed two doors away we ate here again. Food is good as well as the service. Eating outside provides a quieter experince, but you'll miss out on all the happenings inside.

We were in this brewery 3 times during a 4 day stay in Fortuna. Variety of beers were great and food was very good too. Ended up bringing a group of friends here because we were so happy with the quality of service and drinks.

After a day of travel Eel River Brewing hit the spot. I enjoyed the Amber Ale, my wife a glass of wine. The service was quick and helpful. We enjoyed a very good grilled burger, grilled cheese sandwich, nice cold salads and a side of fries. Made for a very tasty and filling meal. Will Return
