“Food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We just spent 4 nights at the MacCallum House and enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning. Our dinner was off the Cafe menu and I must say that the wild caught shrimp cocktail was very good and I am not a big fan of shrimp. I also had the fried chicken(another food I never have) and it was most enjoyable paired with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The oysters??? Tiny. I would be embarrassed to serve them, especially for the price. The other appetizers looked very good and everything is prepared as you would expect from a fine restaurant. The service and wait staff were excellent and the atmosphere is perfect for this quaint little town.

“A lovely spot...a table on the veranda!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Delightful to get a table on the enclosed patio for dinner. No reservations taken for this area of the restaurant. Perfectly huge and delicious salad, flatbread and special pasta. Friendly Josh clearly enjoys his work as a server. Memorable, casual and a place we shall return to....

“Should Be Better”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Would you think that a restaurant by the ocean should have the freshest seafood? You would think so, but our experience did not affirm that assumption. We visited on a Wednesday night in March. The bartender produced amazing drinks--he certainly didn't stint on the spirits. Our table was ready within minutes of the reserved time. From this point, things took a less hopeful direction. The oysters apparently had been sitting around for a while. We sent them back. The scallops were okay, not great, nothing amazing. The salad came with a slip of paper tucked into it. The dessert, however, was very good.

“Sunday hours”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We just recently were up in Mendocino for a girls weekend. We woke up Sunday morning and had a beautiful hike on the coast. It was nearing 11:00 and we were feeling hungry. Remembering a wonderful dinner at the McCallum House years ago, we thought it would be a great idea to wander over to the McCallum for Sunday Brunch. We arrived at 11:15 am and was told " We quit serving at 11:00". I was stunned! Who on earth stops serving Sunday Brunch at 11:00am? Most Brunch places stop around 2:00pm!!!
Needless to say, the Goodlife Cafe was open and we had a fabulous spread for a very reasonable price....

“Good all around experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Very good food, even though a bit pricey. Excellent service. Crab cakes are amazing! Eating outside is a treat because the grounds and views of the ocean are so beautiful.
