We have enjoyed many meals at Eel River Brewing Company. I'm not a beer drinker, but I have enjoyed a good chardonnay along with excellent meals. Family friendly, and a popular place. Reservations are recommended.

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk at the Best Western close by. We walked over and had a good dinner with great service (Michael, I think). I would recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Fortuna.

Arrived here Friday night. Brewery was walkable from our accommodation. The restaurant obviously appeals to families earlier in the evening as well as typical Friday night end-of-work-week patrons. Initially there was no room but the hostess offered to put up a heater outside (chilly evening)...More

Horrible service and even worse food. Waited over an hour to receive cold soup that had been sitting for an obviously long time. Appetizers and beer never came, and the waitress was a flat out B word.More

Just visiting the area for one night and had to try this place. Lived up to our expectations. Fantastic food and service, large portions, great beer and wine. 30 minute wait for a table was definitely worth it!
