Where to Eat in Mendocino County

Compiling a list of recommended restaurants is a difficult task. On every visit, this writer can sample only a few of the many options and professional dining reviews are scarce for Mendocino restaurants. This list is a small sample of the many places available in Mendocino County. There are many more and some may be excellent, but these are the only ones we can recommend with confidence.

Albion: Little River Inn
The Wine Spectator says: "you'll wine and dine unforgettably."

Fort Bragg: Mendo Bistro
If chef Nicholas Petti had established his restaurant elsewhere in California, you'd be paying a lot more for his excellent bistro cuisine. Crab cakes are a particular specialty and not to be missed if they're available.

Fort Bragg: North Coast Brewing Company
They're one of the country's most-awarded breweries and their restaurant is good, too.

Ukiah: Ukiah Brewing Company
Brewmaster Bret Cooperrider produces some fine microbrews in the country's first all-organic brewpub. The restaurant offers live music several nights a week and their menu includes an eclectic mix of well-prepared meals.
