We visit each time we head to Mendocino. It is a local hang out. They make great drinks and food and everyone is friendly. It reminds you of "Cheers".

I love Patterson's. We stopped in to watch the hockey game and dinner. Great clam chowder, oysters and mussels. Enjoyed our conversations with the local patrons. Very friendly, good service.

They only take cash, but this seems to be one of the only spots in town to grab a beer and a bite. Great servers, usually really busy. House wine is actually pretty ok! We didn't eat, but the food looked like typical pub grub, and featured quite a lot of Mexican food.

It seems to be our tradition to welcome in the new year at Pattersons. If you need fancy go elsewhere. Crowded but cozy.

We didn't have a reservation, if they even take them. The hostess handled the table list very well. We were offered seats at a family table and it was fun to meet other travelers. The food was good, and everyone we spoke to in the restaurant commented on how good their meal was. Apparently one of their specialties is ribs... More

Dropped in for lunch. Crowded but found a place at the bar. I had a half pint and we shared a plate. Couple sitting next to us were friendly and we had a nice conversation. Staff was friendly and food was good. Went on to stay in Ft Bragg but returned the next day. Again crowded but one couple was... More

We finally got the chance to enjoy a brunch at Patterson's Pub on our last trip to Mendocino. We were not disappointed! The corn beef hash was tender, tasty and not too salty, and the omelette had vegies that were crisp, not mushy, and lots of meat and cheese. The service was outstanding as always. No wonder the locals flock... More

The ambience and the food is amazing. You really are stuffed when you leave. We brought friends along that had never been to Mendocino and they had to go twice because they loved it so much. They have menu just for the beers they offer.....and they do have Saturday Brunch if you wish to eat early. We preferred to go... More
