We had the rib eye steak smothered in mushrooms with mashed potatoes and veggies, the bourride (seafood soup in saffron broth) and the prawns/scallops in a white wine, lemon butter sauce. For dessert, the carrot cake and tge chocolate silk with pecan walnut crust. Ten stars! No disappointments here...everything was amazing. Tip: make reservations. We came on a Monday evening... More

We had s lovely meal at The Restaurant. We arrived early for our reservation so we had to wait 10 minutes for our table to be cleared and set. It was worth the wait. For an appetizer I had oysters which apparently are best this time of the year. My wife had a house salad. For dinner my wife had... More

We were in Ft Bragg for a mini-honeymoon, just looking to relax for a few days after an action packed wedding week. We told our hotel that we wanted really good food with no frills. The Restaurant was PERFECT. The seafood was fresh and delicious, our server was laid back but super informative when we asked questions. We will be... More

We decided to have dinner and we were happy with our choice. I had the calamari steak (cooked perfectly) my hubby had crab cakes and he thought they were also very good. We shared a dozen raw oysters from Washington and is was delicious and fresh!

Several months ago we discovered this quaint restaurant in downtown Fort Bragg, and we have returned again and again for the wonderful food and fantastic (and personal) service. Once you return the staff knows you, has "your" table reserved and insures that every aspect of your time spent enjoying your dining experience, is cared for with a "personal" touch. What... More

We saw this restaurant driving to Glass Beach. We decided to stop for dinner after visiting the beach. Wow..great food, steak, lobster, salad was all delicious. It's a very small place and you feel like you are sitting in a special place. Would recommend it.

Susan Larsen, Proprietor of this exceptional restaurant, should be thanked - no, lauded - by her loyal followers and those fortunate enough to find and patronize her restaurant! We found it after a hard day's driving through heavy rain and high winds, and simply could not believe our good fortune: a nicely decorated, quiet and well-furnished restaurant in the small... More

Located in a well-kept older building on Ft. Bragg's Main Street, The Restaurant has a pleasing, atmosphere with a kind of down home Granma's dining room sort of vibe. Service is quick and friendly and guests eat at tables with real linens and freshflowrrs. The meals are creative and well-prepared, but all this loveliness comes at a price. Hubby ordered... More
