The best speciality cocktails on the coast and the food is sublime! Chef Alan Kantor's menu is not to be missed. He elevates fried chicken to an otherworldly experience. Just when you think you will burst, it is time for dessert. Too fab!

Even though dinner entrees took a while, we were warned about that ahead of time. Incorrect drink order was promptly fixed and they even gave us a little surprise treat for our anniversary! The main dishes we had were really delicious and creative. The famous blackberry souffle was just ok though. Portions were perfect for me as I was full... More

We went to MacCallum House for cocktails after dinner two nights in a row and would happily recommend it for the nice atmosphere, and really nice bartender who was efficient and made great Old Fashioneds. This was the place with clientele young and old, so they're appealing to everyone.

we went here for dinner and were very happy with the food and Dan the bartender is a wizard. Just sitting at the bar is special and smells wonderful with the spices and flowers he has up on the bar for the drinks he makes.

Visiting McCallum house for dinner is something we really look forward to when visiting Mendocino. So charming, great atmosphere, and good service, always. Food is creative and delicious. Love it! We didn't stay there this time, but it is a wonderful bed and breakfast as well.

I almost hesitate to post how good the breakfast was - food , service, decor, and all! - because I fear its quant appeal could be lost. That said Mendocino is such a small place that aside from during festivals you're likely to get a table and happily enjoy amazing bacon, fresh eggs and tasty fruit. Enjoy!

Whilst we enjoyed our stay at MacCullum House, our expectations of the restaurant were not met and we were left rather disappointed. First things first - excellent wine list - can't grumble about that one, but the food was very disappointing and took forever to arrive. One gets the impression that the restaurant is living on past glory and is... More

Surrounded by purple flowers. Maybe the Princess Plant, the MacCallum House offers a fine spot for lunch or dinner. We had the nightly pasta dish with steak and a shallot -Dijon sauce. It was spectacular. The rock fish tacos were good but not remarkable. People around us were raving about the fried chicken. Nice tea selection and extensive menu of... More

The setting was romantic, the old and service were exceptional and the wine was great. The fireplace was great and we had dessert in the bar in front of another wood burning fireplace.

We wanted a good breakfast and were told about MacCullum House so off we went. Crowded and a waiting list, sometimes that is a good sign. The service was slow and to be expected as they were busy. The food was okay but regrettably not great. Is is worth going yes, just keep your expectations in check.
