Sippin’ Suds in Sunny Blue Lake

GREAT PUB FOOD

The weather really is better out here in Blue Lake, so naturally the Mad River
Brewing Tap Room is one of the best places to partake of our hand-crafted
brews! You’ll find not only our award winning Steelhead and Jamaica Fine Ales
— like our flagship Steelhead Extra Pale Ale, winner of multiple Gold Medals
at the Great American Beer Festival — but we also feature seasonal and
specialty beers that you can only get here! We’ve got a Beer Garden, covered
in the winter, but a great place to soak up the sun in the summer when the tent
comes down. Plus, there’s live music 6-8:30 p.m. most nights, always free and
open to all ages. The Beer Garden is dog-friendly (on a leash, please) so your
furry companion can join you for lunch.
Our pub-inspired menu features burgers, hand cut fries, yummy sandwiches,
a fresh selection of salads and other fare. Our popular fish and chips is sure to
hit the spot and pairs great with one of our frosty brews! If you’re headed out
for a day of fishing, hiking, biking or other adventure in Humboldt’s amazing
outdoors, swing by the Tap Room first to pick up a 6-pack or growler of your
favorite beer to go.
Mad River Brewing... making great beer right here in Blue Lake for over 25
years!

Mazzotti’s on the Plaza, overlooking the famous Arcata Plaza, is home to a long tradition
of serving fine Italian food on the North Coast. In 1974 the Mazzotti Family opened the
first Mazzotti’s Restaurant in Eureka, and after many years there they decided to open
the Arcata location in 2002. Since that time Mazzotti’s on the Plaza has become one of
the premier restaurants in Humboldt County.
Offering authentic Italian dishes and specialties, Mazzotti’s on the Plaza provides
diners a true culinary delight. Enjoy items like their Spinach Pie Calzone or the popular
Prosciutto Pizza. Try one of their great sandwiches like the famous Hitman, or the delicious
BBQ Tri-Tip sandwich. Mazzotti’s on the Plaza is also a good place for seafood and
steak. They have wild-caught Grilled Halibut and Baked Salmon, or grilled Rib-eyes,
Filets and Prime Rib. Alternatively, for the vegetarian they have a grilled portabella
sandwich and a delicious eggplant parmesan sandwich.
Mazzotti’s on the Plaza uses only the freshest, local, organic ingredients whenever
possible. Whether in their handmade ravioli, fresh basil pesto or in their excellent salads,
they are committed to offering you only the best.
“Come enjoy a meal. Have a glass from our wine selection, or a pint of one of our
eight unique, crafted beers on tap at our full service bar. We look forward to serving
you.” ~The Mazzottis

Starts Right Here
Since 1955, McDonald’s has been proud to serve the world some of its
favorite food. Back in 1954 a man named Ray Kroc discovered a small burger
restaurant in California, and wrote the first page of McDonald’s history. From
that humble start as a small restaurant, McDonald’s is proud to have become one
of the world’s leading food service retailers, with more than 36,000 restaurants
serving more than 69 million people in more than 100 countries every day.
As part of a global network of local family restaurants, McDonald’s and their
owner-operators are proud to give back to the communities they serve. Through
involvement in local sports, local charities and events, or taking steps to improve
neighborhoods, giving back is an essential part of their operation.
Your favorite McDonald’s meal comes with complimentary Wi-Fi. Get some
work done, check email, connect with friends... for free! Kids love to romp at
the McDonald’s PlayPlaces in Fortuna and Eureka on Broadway. And except for
McKinleyville, McDonald’s Drive-Thrus are open 24 hours a day.
“McDonald’s is a people business” —Ray Kroc

All You Can Eat Buffet, Featuring Fresh Sushi
Oriental Buffet has been a dining sensation since hitting the North Coast in
2005. The dishes are prepared fresh and are visually stunning – from the fresh
sushi bar, where you can watch the sushi chef prepare your favorites, to the
Mongolian-style grill where you choose your ingredients and sauces before they
are cooked in front of your eyes.
What makes Oriental Buffet different is the sheer selection and quality of food
we provide: items like crab legs, mussels, oysters and many varieties of shrimp.
For the kids, we feature a dessert bar that includes soft-serve ice cream, cakes,
pastries and a wide variety of sweets to complement our main courses. There is
also a fresh fruit bar where you can load up on a wide assortment of seasonal
fruits.

And in Fortuna Come Try the Sushi Boat Buffet

The Sushi Boat Buffet in Fortuna serves all you can eat sushi and Chinese food.

Brick & Fire / Doors Down
The welcoming fire may draw you in, but the well-crafted fare
will bring you back again. And again…
When you open the distinctive cobalt blue door into this midtown bistro, you’re
warmly greeted both by the gracious staff and by the crackling wood-fired oven that
dominates Brick & Fire. The name says it all – the massive artisan-built brick oven
is at the heart of the warm ambiance and the inventive menu, as Brick & Fire’s chefowners skillfully blend European tradition with fresh local harvest. From beautifully
seasonal salads and fire-roasted polenta lasagna, to seafood-stuffed calamari
and slow-roasted osso bucco, the menu runs from rustic casual to redefined Italian
favorites. And with that great brick oven naturally comes incredible wood-fired
pizza. The doughs are created daily in-house, as are the outstanding artisan handcrafted breads, baked goods and desserts, house cured meats and olives… and any
other ingredients that can be house-made by the dedicated staff. Simply put, Brick
& Fire is people who love food, serving the food they love. Whether you prefer
beer on tap brought to the table, or the toast of Napa sipped at the bar, this warm
neighborhood bistro offers uncompromising quality at comfortable pricing. Come on
over to F Street. They have a table by the fire waiting for you… .
And two doors down... Brick & Fire’s sexy “little sister” spot, 2 Doors Down, with
a charming list of over 80 wines to entice, enlighten and entertain, as well as savory
pairings and small plates, sweet desserts and espresso, and spirited ambiance and
interludes. Located just 2 doors down from Brick & Fire, this cozy wine bar opens
daily at 4:30 p.m. for some serious fun with wine!

Fresh, Good Food! (Mediterranean-Creole Fusion)
Providing fresh, good food, Café Nooner is a locally owned, family friendly
experience emphasizing the use of premium local, organic (wherever possible)
and natural ingredients. Start off with a Meze Platter of dolmas, garlic-bubba,
house-made falafel and roasted red pepper hummus with grilled flatbread.
Next, savor a marinated char-grilled lamb, seafood, kofta or veggie Kebob
with a Creole BBQ or honey/tahini sauce, accompanied by okra and bright
rice, wrapped in a flatbread. Or maybe a Calamari Po’ Boy better suits
you with a classic remoulade sauce. How about Guy’s favorite, our famous
“Triple D” BBQ Pulled Pork w/fresh apple slaw Po’ Boy — all on fresh baked rolls.
We also offer gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan dishes to tantalize any palate!
Need comfort food closer to home? Try our 1/3 pound hand-formed patty of
Pacific Pastures Grassfed Beef char-grilled to perfection with all the fixins’ on a

House of Omelettes and Much More

BREAKFAST

The Chalet in Eureka was purchased by Vera Johnson March 1, 1975. The
building was originally an ice cream parlor and only seated eight people. By
1981 the restaurant had expanded to nearly double its size and became known
for its hamburgers and soft serve ice cream. Over the years, with more remodeling
and hard work, it has turned into the business that it is today.
The Chalet is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It is known for having some
of the finest omelettes in Humboldt County. Using only the freshest ingredients
available, the restaurant has won the Times Standard’s restaurant awards for “Best
Breakfast” and “Best of the North Coast” many times over. It offers great food,
excellent service, a warm friendly atmosphere, and serves a complete breakfast
and lunch menu all day.
Except for a minor repair job due to fire damage, The Chalet in Eureka has
been open 365 days a year for the past 37 years. And while Vera is not part
of the daily operation of the restaurant anymore, the business is still part of the
family. Her son Bill, a retired warrant officer from the U.S. Marine Corps, now
manages the restaurant, making sure the same dedication and service that have
made The Chalet a local favorite since 1975 still continue today.

Welcome to Chapala Café, bastion of authentic Mexican cuisine.
Located on the corner of 2nd and C Streets in historic Old Town Eureka,
Chapala is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Catering, banquet
facilities and delivery within a one-block radius are offered.
The spacious dining room can accommodate a large group and still be cozy
enough for a casual meal for two. A festive, folk-style mural of a Mexican village
decorates the entire east wall.
Unlike some restaurants, at Chapala, if you do not receive your food, they
will not charge you. Customers that request wine margaritas will be quietly asked
to leave, and warnings that the Burrito Ranchero is “quite large” should be heeded.
Patrons will enjoy Chapala’s fresh salsa, homemade chips and perennial
favorites such as Sopes, Enchiladas, Tacos, Burritos and Carnitas. The Chiles
Rellenos are a delight not to be missed. Generous portions of piping-hot entrées
can be enjoyed with a variety of Mexican beers or the area’s finest tequila
margaritas. Be sure to save room for dessert... delicious homemade flan!
The Tumbleweeds provide live entertainment from 6 to 8 p.m.
every Friday and Saturday night.

Marcelli’s Ravioli & Sausage Factory has been serving
Humboldt County since 1927. Little has changed since
the Factory was first started.
The “Old Country” flavor that made our Ravioli and
Sausage well-known throughout Northern California
still exists. Production methods and ingredients have
remained the same, with all products still being made
by hand. We believe that maintaining the quality of ingredients helps to keep
that “Old Country” flavor. We think you’ll agree.

Savor Old Town. Taste Oberon.
One hundred years ago Dick’s New Oberon was a popular dining and drinking
establishment in Eureka’s Old Town. Reopened in 2008, Oberon Grill has become
equally popular as a dining destination. Using the old photograph of Dick and
his barkeeps as inspiration, the Kohl family has brought back the building to its
original glory. The beautiful mahogany bar was built by Wallace and Hinz, local
bar manufacturers. The columns on the bar mirror the detail on the front of the
building, as well as the features on the old photograph.
Chef Nicholas Kohl has created a menu featuring California flavors. With a
focus on quality steaks and fresh seafood, Oberon Grill serves up American food
with a twist. Chef Nicholas offers nightly specials with market fresh ingredients.
Herb encrusted Prime Rib is featured Friday and Saturday nights. Fresh Crab is
available in season. We serve breakfast Saturday and Sunday, and lunch and
dinner Tuesday through Sunday.
Upstairs, Oberon Grill’s Ruby Room is available for private parties. With
seating for 15 to 35, the Ruby Room offers quiet dining overlooking the main
dining floor.
Creating simple cocktails with complex flavors is the idea behind Oberon Grill’s
classic bar drinks. We have selected top quality spirits from around the world to
add to our West Coast selection of wines.

Ramone’s on Harrison
Neighborhood Café with Beer and Wine Bar

BREAKFAST

In 2011 Ramone’s expanded its bakery & cafe on Harrison Avenue by moving
next door after thoroughly remodeling the new site. This new urban style café
has quickly become the hub of the neighborhood with a comfortable, colorful,
and casual ambiance. In addition to everything you enjoy from Ramone’s Bakery,
the new café includes hot breakfasts daily with Sunday Brunch specials, dinner
specials after 5 p.m., beers on tap and a remarkable and well-planned wine list
that is kept interesting with frequent updates.
The kitchen staff prepares meals with an emphasis on local produce and
ingredients. All breads used are baked in-house, and Ramone’s Bakery also
roasts its own coffee.
As you enter the café, colors and beautiful furnishings will take your eyes around
the room. But be sure to explore the place as every corner holds a surprise such
as the deli case, the sheltered back patio, and the beautiful bar and farm table
created by local woodworkers. You will quickly feel at home here and recognize
this to be the perfect place to come alone or with friends for a glass of wine, a
casual meal, or simply for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat. Should you find a
reason for an impromptu celebration, choose a cake, torte or delicate pastry from
the display case, and complement it with a glass of champagne!

The Best Barbecue in Humboldt County!

MEATS

Sammy’s Island-style barbecue tastes so good it just might be the best in all
of Northern California! His meat and sides are prepared fresh every day, the
BBQ slow-roasted on a special rotisserie over mesquite and oak. Try his signature
Kalua Pork, a traditional Island specialty slow-cooked for 12 hours in his own
blend of herbs ands spices, and not pulled until you order it. You also have to
try his amazing Pineapple Meatballs, all beef and slow-cooked in sweet and
sour sauce and big chunks of pineapple. Are Ribs or Tri-Tip more your style? Or
maybe Chicken? Sammy does those to perfection too.
At Sammy’s BBQ you can dine in, pick up some takeout or have them cater
your next event. The restaurant offers you the choice of indoor seating or dining
outdoors on the waterfront. There’s a large-screen TV, and outdoors during the
summer there’s live music to enjoy.
Do you have a party or other event coming up? Sammy’s specializes in catering.
They offer a large range of meats, appetizers and sides – you can even order a
whole roast pig!

Serving Fresh Seafood Specialties & Steaks Since 1988
A local favorite, the Sea Grill, housed in a lovely 1876 Victorian in Old
Town, is the winner of the Eureka Times-Standard Reader’s Choice Award for
Best Seafood Restaurant in Humboldt County for the last 18 years. The wide
variety of fresh seafood on the menu is exquisitely prepared – sauteed, grilled,
charbroiled, poached, pan or deep fried, and accompanied by delicate sauces.
We specialize in fresh, local, sustainable seafood.
All of our beef is aged Black Angus including Filet Mignon, NY Steak and RibEye. Prime Rib is served Thursday through Saturday. Spinach & Cheese-Stuffed
Chicken, Chicken Saute Sec and Roasted Duck in a cherry merlot sauce round out
the menu. Dinners include your choice of the soup of the day, our award-winning
seafood chowder, or a visit to the extensive salad bar. All the desserts are made
in house, including our delicious Key Lime Pie and Créme Brûlée which people
say is the best anywhere.
A beautiful antique mahogany bar that came “around the horn” in the 1880s
is the centerpiece of the lounge. Here you can relax with a great specialty
cocktail. We are proud of our wine list and feature several selections by the
glass. We offer a wide-ranging collection of microbrews including nine on tap.
Our private banquet room can accommodate larger groups up to 50.

Quality is our Recipe®
Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s restaurant in 1969 in Columbus,
Ohio. He opened the door to a new gold standard in quality food.
When other restaurants were using frozen beef and mass-producing food,
Dave developed an innovative method: preparing fresh, never frozen, madeto-order hamburgers, served the way the customer wanted.
Today, that passion for quality remains the number one priority at every
Wendy’s restaurant. Wendy’s system includes more than 6,500 franchise and
Company restaurants in the U.S. and 27 other countries and U.S. territories
worldwide.
In Eureka, every day, Wendy’s uses select, premium ingredients and serves
food that’s made fresh with every order. Enjoy great food at a reasonable
price, in a casual atmosphere.

Long-time restaurateur Curley Tait opened Curley’s Grill in the Victorian Village

where it remained a hit with locals and visitors alike. Now however, almost 20
years after it first opened, Curley’s has returned to its original location, and is
back where it all began with the newly remodeled Curley’s Full Circle Restaurant.
As always, Curley’s affordable prices, generous portions and consistently good
food contribute to its success. Today’s guests can now enjoy them in the newly
remodeled restaurant’s bright and cheerful atmosphere.
Don’t miss the chance to try Curley’s Caesar salad; it’s the best between Eureka
and the Bay Area. Curley’s also serves great steaks and grilled fish entrées. All
dishes come served on Curley’s signature Fiestaware, and the tables are adorned
with fun and whimsical salt and pepper shakers.
Curley’s has been lauded in a number of publications, including Northern
California Coast’s Best Places. Now Curley’s offers catering, and no event is too
big or small for Curley’s Catering Service.
Stop by and see Curley and the crew in the lovely Victorian Village of Ferndale.
