“Consistently good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

This was my second visit and both times, the food and service were excellent. They offer a special with your choice of a meat and how to prepare it with choice of sauce. I have gotten the fish selection both times, and it was excellent. It came with well prepared veggies and polenta. Cost was moderate ($23 for the fish.) many of their wines can be selected in 3or 6 oz. pours. This restaurant is upstairs in an old building with other shops, very quaint. I'm not sure if the have an elevator so if you have access needs, you may want to check.

“Check out out Mendo Bistro's Bar-- Barbelow for great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

I normally would not recommend taking kids to a bar but...

After a day of traveling south from Eureka, we pulled into Fort Bragg late and with three hungry impatient kids. We checked out the menu at the Mendo Bistro and found it expensive and looked like the service was slow. Mom suggested that we check out the "barbelow" and we were not disappointed. We found a comfy leather couch with a big coffee table and board games for the kids. I had a local craft brew and my bride had a local wine. The kids had homemade colas. We had some great pub food including flat bread, cheeses, and sausages. Our total bill was $40. The service was great as was the food. The kids were delighted to have dinner on couches while playing games.

“Ft. Bragg weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Came to Ft. Bragg with my adult kids for a few days. Celebrated my sons graduation from Sac State. We have been to Ft. Bragg many times before. This was the first time we tried Mendo Bistro. I had the salmon special and it was delicious. They did have us wait awhile as they were short handed on help. But it was worth the wait. The staff is friendly and they make sure you are taken care of. Will eat there again...
