After a long but beautiful drive down from OR we planned on staying in Eureka for a night to get some rest and check out the area.
The brewery is in the downtown area, the vibe of the whole are seemed strange, the buildings had great architecture and had so much potential to be a great little town but we seemed to be outnumbered by homeless folks by about 5:1. We were there on a Thurs. and I am going to be generous and assume this isn't the case over the weekends.

The inside of Lost Coast was dated, the whole place felt a bit grimy. I was happy with their beer selection as there were several more interesting styles available than what we can get in bottles down in So. CA. I got the Barleywine which was very nice, they should start bottling that one!

There menu was standard brewpub fare, burgers, sandwiches, wings, maybe a pizza or pasta dish, etc. The food was decent nothing great nothing bad.

Overall it was an ok experience, however next time I'm in the area to enjoy the beauty up there, I'll probably steer clear of Eureka as a whole.

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
