BUSY place! There are always a bunch of people here, especially on a Friday afternoon.

Typical brewpub atmosphere, loud, a few TVs showing sports, and some games in the back of the pub.

Service was OK, a bit slow, but they sure were busy. Our server was friendly and pleasant though.

There were 8 or 9 beers on tap. I had a double IPA that was excellent, and a blend of 8 Ball Stout and Pale Ale called Yin & Yang. (so-so...)

Food is pretty good, and the prices are quite fair.

A very nice place to stop in Eureka to get good beer and food. You just need to be patient sometimes, because it is a popular place.

May place in that it caters to families with two pinball machines and a large hanging spider at the front door that goes up and down as the door opens and closes! Cool stop! A BIG miss is the ketchup..... They don't serve Heinz!

Stopped by while in the area for work. Seems like a fun place, but the beers are kind of generic. Also seemed a little run down and tired. Their fruit beers seem to be the best offerings and the staff was nice. Food was standard pub fare, and priced reasonably.

Brewery/tap room is usually packed. Has some tv's, bar and table seating. Average food but great if your in the mood for something simple. Good beer. Usually their usuals on tap and a couple taproom only like the apricot wheat. Usually pretty noisy. Overall a chill place.

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.

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.

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
