Visiting our Eureka office each month, Nooners has become the default place for lunch. Whilst the 'DDD' sandwich is my go to, the specials are always good worth a look as the chef has plenty of great flavour combinations.

We were antiquing in the area and ran across this place. People were streaming in/out and we can understand now that we've eaten there. Lots of selection including local seafood. definitely a place to return to!

A shopkeeper recommended this little place and we were glad she did. Hidden location but it was jammed when we stopped by for lunch. No wonder--the food was excellent!

We had two shop owners recommend this place for lunch and noted that Guy Fieri did a segment here on his show so I figured this place would be great. I can't understand what all the hype is. I had the clam chowder which was too thick and heavy and a salad which the waitress raved about how great it... More

The menu is varied and the food is really good. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The local cherry cider is on tap and is very good. The burgers are amazing and make sure you check out the daily special. Two locations one Oldtown Eureka, and another is in Henderson Center, Eureka. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I enjoy the salads here. I often meet friends for a light business lunch. There are two convenient locations, one in Old Town, one in Henderson Center.

Ordered the DDD pulled pork and slaw sub and wanted to order extra slaw to go with but waitress really advised again it, shouldn't have listened to her as extra slaw would have made it go from good to great. Also ordered another sub with avocado, can't remember the name, again it was good, not great. Then had the kids... More

Maybe my expectations were too high for this restaurant since it was featured on DDD. The day we visited there was one couple sitting at a table outside. No one inside. That usually makes you question things. Our food was just ok. Not really anything outstanding. It was sort of dark inside so maybe that led to my experience.

Everything was delicious! We had the Lamb Kabob Plate, Lamb Flatbread and the Felafel Flatbread. The Dolmas was some of the best we've ever had. Definitely worth the stop.
