Headed up here on a recent trip to No. Cal. on 11/29

Nice little brewpub that is pretty damn busy for about 2pm on a Sunday afternoon (and that wasn't just at the bar stools to watch the Sunday games). Walked in the back entrance that leads right in to three of four tables on the right, a few arcade games and a pool table is located on the left. Then you come upon the bar - relatively small bar area, like your typical restaurant, and then there is an open area of seating with little tables dispersed throughout. Laid back vibe, lots of locals there (always a good sign IMO). Great music and vibe. As mentioned, busy for 2pm on a Sunday, but wait staff was is nice and friendly. Roughly 14 beers on draft (5 seasonals). Food is outstanding! Got the stuffed pretzel with jalepeno and cheese for an app. For lunch, I got the Famous Brown with parmesan lemon fries and my girlfriend got the sliders.
Overall, I wish this place was freaking east coast! Good beer, good food, good wait staff, good vibe and CHEAP as hell! (1,022 characters)

Busy at lunchtime and still got a good table. Great burger. Wife loved the clam chowder. The chocolate porter was very good. Lots of locals eating and drinking. Friendly vibe. (175 characters)

Visited 3 breweries rated in this order: Mad River, Eel River & Lost Coast.
All good. Lost Coast mostly a university / young crowd. Order the roast oysters with pesto! (with garlic is over kill). Their beers a bit watery and uninspired, but liked the IPA well enough to buy a well priced 6. Our waitress was great. Pretty typical restaurant rather than a tasting room. (369 characters)

They seem to have forgotten what craft beer is about they make very mediocre one note beer. The beer industry has moved forward into a cornucopia of flavors and lost coast is doing exactly the same thing that they have been doing for the last 25 years . On the rare occasion that they try something new it is a horrible half assed effort. It seems that they are a victim of their own success kind of like they are not willing to take any chances and just want to play it safe . But that's just my opinion and it doesn't mean much to anyone but me (546 characters)

This is a very good, enjoyable brewpub in downtown Eureka. It's in an old brick building with some nice old details,including apparently cast-iron columns, etc., outside and in,with nice big windows looking onto the street. The staff are friendly and efficient. The place can get loud and crowded but has a good feel to it.

Their beer overall is very good but not outstanding. The range at any given time is somewhat limited but has their standards on tap plus a few rotating/seasonal ones.

Food is also very good,but not outstanding - good burgers, good steak sandwich, fish and chips, etc. Clam chowder is very good. (626 characters)

This was stop #8 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here for dinner and to try their beers. It was a Friday evening and the brewery was busy, but we were seated right away. The brewery is situated on the first floor and a mezzanine area of a 3-story, nicely restored, stand-alone building on the fringe of the downtown area. The interior is also nicely restored, and is a cool place to enjoy a meal and a beer.

We ordered a sampler flight of the 10 beers that were available. Each was brewed very close to style, and none of them exhibited any flaws. However, none of them were very exciting other than the Tangerine Wheat, which was something that we had never experienced before and we liked it a lot because of its uniqueness. The food menu was fairly standard pub fare, but it was very good, and it outshined the beers.

There are other breweries in town that we’d try first before coming back here for the beer, but if none of those breweries offer food, then we’d come back here again without hesitation. (1,062 characters)
