“Great meal in a wonderful setting”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

My wife and I had a late dinner on a quiet weeknight at the MacCallum House. I had the MacBurger, a wonderful high-quality burger with cheese, BBQ sauce, and bacon. Somehow the description doesn't do the burger justice -- it was one of the best I've had.

My wife had the Niman Ranch pork chops. It was a huge piece of meat, perfectly done. The creamed corn side dish was so good I ordered a side.

So why only four stars? Our service was fantastic for the first 2/3 of the meal, attentive but never disruptive. Our water glasses were always filled and a couple special requests were perfectly executed. But around the time we finished, our waitress seemed to disappear. We waited more than 10 minutes for our plates to be cleared, and then another 15 minutes for cappuccino. And then maybe 15 minutes to get the check. Without exaggeration, it was more than 45 minutes from the time we finished until we signed the check.

We would absolutely visit again -- they deserve another chance, and the food was just too good not to enjoy again.

“Amazing Dinner; Romantic Setting”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was easily the best meal that we had while in Mendocino. The entire menu looked and sounded super-tasty, and everything we ordered was beautifully presented and perfectly executed. They had a really complete wine list with a serious focus on Mendocino County wines. The service was very friendly and the servers were very knowledgeable. The manager stopped by to congratulate us on our wedding anniversary (which we'd alerted them to upon scheduling our reservation).

Very, very good, and we've already recommended the Maccallum House to all of our friends.

“Unique Food Offerings”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

My wife and I had the opportunity to try dinner at the MacCallum House on our first night's stay near Mendocino. The service was very good and the good delicious. Based on our experience at dinner and the fact that breakfast at our hotel had a bit to be desired, we stopped in for breakfast the second morning. Service was slow but the food was still good.

“So, so experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Beautiful building with great history. We were seated in the middle of the room at a table for two. After reading the reviews and ratings I expected more. Our server seemed harried as she rushed about. Would pass the next time around. Disappointed.
