“Disappointing since last visit”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Last year we very much enjoyed this restaurant. This year, we were disappointed. The service was nonchalant, and the food was overpriced for the quality of the meals that we got. I hope they are able to rectify these issues.

“GLORIOUS!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Over the past 2 months, we have spent 9 nights eating dinners in Mendocino's restaurants. After trying all the top rated restaurants, 955 Ukiah/Flow/etc., we clearly decided that the MacCallum House Restaurant has, by far, the best food. Our favorites are the Mushroom Gnochi, Shrimp Tacos, and the "to die for" hot house made multigrain sourdough bread.

Enjoy!

“I don't even like fried chicken but Wow!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We went to the Mac House because a local told us they had the best fried chicken he had ever had. I'm not a big fan of fried chicken but we both ordered it and it was amazingly good. And the green onion mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy went so well with it! The corn bread on the first night (yes it was so good we had it again the next night) was so moist it was like corn bread pudding--which was delicious. The next night it was more like traditional corn bread. At $20 the fried chicken was one of the least expensive items on the menu, but so so worth it.

“Relaxing atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in Mendocino. The proprietor of the Brewery Gulch Inn recommended the restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful. The Manhattan cocktail I had was the best I had ever tasted. My wife ordered the wild mushroom gnocchi only to be told they were out. The server suggested that she let the chef create a pasta for her. She was not disappointed. The mushroom fettuccine they created was fantastic.

“Tasty meals”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

We ate breakfast and dinner here on our recent trip to Mendocino. Our dinner consisted of a crab cake appetizer, salad, wild mushroom gnocchi, and a banana split for dessert. Their breakfast menu also has many tempting options. We ordered eggs benedict and thoroughly enjoyed. The food here is excellent and being able to eat in a house that was built in the 1800's is part of the charm.
