When visiting the office in Eureka, this is the place we head for a pint and dinner. Good food, great feel and a fine selection of beers.

Well, I have had oysters here long ago and they were good. Today I had breakfast. Only having breakfast once here, to be fair, it may not be a good estimation of overall performance. I had a veggie omelet. It was suppose to have cheddar cheese. They forgot the cheese altogether. I did not mention it, because it took so... More

Had eaten here before for dinner on trips to Eureka so was disappointed to see a small and very limited menu for our mid-afternoon lunch with visiting friends. It turns out the full luncheon board with all the specials had been removed since it was between lunch and dinner (2:30 pm). The "Manhattan" clam chowder was actually a mix of... More

My husband ordered fried oysters for lunch after being touted as 'wonderful and fresh' by one of the waitstaff. When the oysters were served, my husband said they were 'gelatinous' and 'very strong' tasting. I had one and totally agreed. My fish entree was overcooked and tasteless. We were disappointed and wish we had gone to Roy's Club!!

Stopped by there tonight to try their clams. Just overnighting in eureka and it sounded good. My husband and I walked in and sat at the bar. A waitress was standing in front of us looked at us, but did not acknowledge us. Another one behind the bar didn't seem to notice us but said hello to a guy who... More

We had great service and really good food. Had a burger and it was cooked beautifully. We really enjoyed our waiter he was funny and recommend some things to do while visiting. We would go back again.

I came for a late lunch because I wanted some seafood after hiking around the redwoods all morning. There were few people in the restaurant because it was around 2pm. I was seated promptly and my drink order taken. The server came and made some recommendations. I place my order and then waited for quite a while before my food... More

We stopped there in the afternoon and had a drink plus the steamed clams which were delicious. Went back for dinner and the food was horrid. We selected difference entrees off the special menu and both were terrible. I ordered the shrimp bisque which was like shrimp chili - yuck and a pasta dish. The sauce was like paste and... More

Good american style food in a cozy setting. The food is hearty, nothing nifty, but decent soul food. Very nice staff!

A nice atmosphere with good service. Sunday afternoons they have a really good Jazz Duo. The food is very good. It's a little pricey but with the high quality food it's still a good value. Cafe Waterfront is my favorite restaurant in Eureka.

Thank tripjunky
