We came here on a Thursday evening and it was crowded. We didn't have to wait for a table but the tables stayed full throughout our meal. This is definitely not the place to come if you're looking for a quiet meal. It is very...More

This is the place to go when you happen to be in Fortuna. The place is crowded for a reason! The food is good, the atmosphere is great, and they have a large patio if you want to eat outside. I definitely recommend eating there!

If you want beer this maybe the place for you. We ordered fish and chips and a side of onion rings. They had absolutely no flavor. Hotel recommended this place since you could walk to it. I Would not recommend it.

We were staying at a hotel just a half a block away and really tired from a long drive. The brewery was recommended by the hotel and we were just happy it was so close. There is a great garden, plenty space and a "games"...More
