We had heard good things about this place and thought we would try it as it was right behind our hotel. The atmosphere is nice and cozy with a fireplace and lovely patio with a fire pit looking out on the bay. The service was good but the food was disappointing!

Pouring rain outside, warm and relaxing inside. Our waitress, Ashley, gave us time to decompress and enjoy the view of Humboldt Bay. She was helpful in recommending local favorites. We had BBQ oysters served in different seasonings, a warm and heart seafood chowder, and a local favorite ravioli dish. Portions we reasonable as well as price, while many ingredients were... More

Party of one sent to the bar, not good enough to sit at a table. I ordered a beer but couldn't read the menu due to the blinding sun. They would draw the blinds, paid for the beer and went somewhere else for dinner!

The food is pretty good. We love the different appetizers, especially the artichoke. We are always looking for a good fresh salad bar, and it seems almost impossible to find. We have been to lunch here 3 times and every time the lettuce isn't quite up to our standards... bummer. The service is hit and miss, we usually have to... More

Yes, it's a commercial restaurant but it feels local and friendly and you're not rushed in and out. You're gonna like this place and it's obvious that it's... More

Excellent service when sitting at the bar, good drinks to accompany our fried green beans, and a corn bread roll.

They really shine when it comes to meat dishes(Except fish), but their sides aren't really all that great, especially the Mac and Cheese, which seems to be VERY pasty. It was like eating macaroni in cheese-flavored glue. But overall, it's pretty alright. Your best bet are the ribs for a true BBQ experience.

It is a popular place with my friends. It is one os their favorites. It was my first time there. I ordered the Game Hen. It looked good and juicy from the outside. They put a sauce on it. Inside it seemed sort of dry and a late hard. Like they cooked it earlier and heated it up. The cheese... More
