First of all bring cash this s a no credit card zone. Try the captains place this is enough food for two the fsh is prepared so yummy and is very fresh. The fish tacos were outstanding. The dinning time is a little long but worth the wait. The family staff was outstanding and Ma Ma Carine ended our night with giant hugs. One of new favorite places to eat.

A little spendy and the atmophere is typical of marina establishments, but the food is excellent. The staff is apparently mostly family members--three generations. Kind of fun.

The service is top notch! Very overpriced for average food. Cost $100 for my family of four, we each had a cup of chowder and shared an entree which took 45 minutes to get. And there's the best part, they only accept cash so make sure you have plenty to eat here!

We weren't expecting such delicious food. Family owned and operated, this small restaurant had great menu options, the best clam chowder (ever) and generous dinner plates.
We will definitely visit them again when we come to Fort Bragg.

I love their fish and chips- and there was a lot of it! Mama Carine has won many prizes for her clam chowder. The burgers are HUGE- don't order one for one child, they can't eat more than half. They have their own dock and have both inside and outside riverside dining.
