We booked in advance and there was some question about separate tags...we won't go if it has to be on just one tag. They finally said ok, but took some of the pleasure out, just having to discuss it.

We stopped off for some shopping and had a quick lunch in the restaurant. Great young waiter looked after us well and attended to our order very well. All our choice from the menu was excellent and enjoyed the ocean view while dinning. Great place to stop and dine.

We ate at many places in Gualala and this was by far the best. Service was good and the food was a very good value. We had the Crab Cake burger and fish n chips. We were staying at the Whale Watch Inn and this eatery was very close.

We enjoyed lunch here. Even though it was an overcast rainy day there was a good view from this restaurant. We really enjoyed the clam chowder and the crab sandwich was very good portion and delicious.

Delicious fish tacos! Sat in picture window and watched a whale spout about while we waited. Lovely and friendly waitress! Friendly locals. Winding our way up to Mendocino and back down Sonoma valley, this was a delightful surprise. Relaxing and small.
