Description: We’re Eel River Brewing Company and we’ve blazed a trail in the craft brew industry over the past twenty years. Continuing our unfailing commitment to quality, taste and consistency is our diverse offerings of excellent craft beer. Much like the tenacious people who brew it, our beer is award-winning. Edgy.

Though the food was your standard bar-type food, it's well prepared and the portions are huge so you don't have to worry about leaving hungry.

The beers we had were fantastic and if I'm in this neck of the woods again, I'd definitely go back!

The staff at the Super 8 next door recommended this restaurant to us while we were staying at the motel, and we decided to try it, especially because we received a discount on our bill by showing our room keys from the Super 8. The beer choices were good and the food was also very good. Our group had a pasta dish, fish, a burger, and a sandwich, and all of it was good with interesting choices and options. Tried the house-made chocolate Oreo truffle cake, which was fabulous! The only downside to our visit on this Thursday night was the poor service we received from our waitress. She was very inattentive and even unfriendly at first. She seemed to warm up a bit throughout the meal, but never gave us satisfactory service. The table next to us apparently felt the same way as we heard them debating whether to even give her a tip. We hope the restaurant improves the level of service they expect and require their staff to give their customers.

Good pub grub menu, enormous portions, lively atmosphere.
The beers are brewed on site and are way above your average suds!

Our group visited this establishment for dinner after a long day of driving and sight seeing. The restaurant was busy and we were told it would be a 30-35 minute wait. No problem, we could wait. After an hour and seeing several tables filled by people who came after us, I went to see WHEN we might be seated. Yeah, they forgot our group of 13.
We were finally seated but had to split into two groups spaced as far away from one another as humanly possible by the staff. Our second table, while ordering first, waited 20 minutes longer for their food than our first table. It wasn't the fault of the waitress but the kitchen staff. The manager was asked to come by and when he did, was not very sincere in his " I'm sorry about that" response. Almost like, hey it's always like this so what's the big deal.
Not enough staff for the amount of customers on a Friday night.

We won't be back!

Ate there two week nights in a row in early Oct 13. Good food and beer. I'd say your experience is "server" dependent. Tuesday was better than Wed but both were okay. I happened to be here in March 2011 and I'd say it's pretty consistently good.
