“A little far from us, but if you were out antique shopping in Fortuna or at the river, you should check it out. Eel River IPA is a great beer! ”

Pizza Place
“Truly cheesy pizza, if you love cheese , I recommend it! My nephew highly recommends their sandwiches. They make the hot, toasted, cheesy, melty kind. I have yet to try their sandwiches, though since I love that kind of sandwich, I can't wait to.”

“The VI is almost right across the street from "The Quarters." Great bar & dining. Tell Lowell (the host/owner) you are our guests & he promises he'll give you a great table with a view of Main St. ”

“If you're looking for local characters, this is the place. Ferndale's greasy spoon offers great filling breakfasts and lots of local flavor. ”

Burger Joint
“This place is very conveniently located just next door to the Beauregard! This is a super casual place: there is a window where you order your food: it's good for take-out, or you can eat on the outside picnic tables in good weather, or indoors which has a counter with 3 stools. This place is a local favorite and has been voted "best burger of Humboldt county" for a reason: the burgers are made from Humboldt grass-fed beef and are addictive (for me, anyway, which is not great news for my waistline, but man, are they good). This place is of course, mainly for burger lovers. My favorite is the cajun bacon cheese burger (single or double) with everything on it. The fries are also good. Try the "fry sauce" (yum) which is free: you have to ask for it when you pick up your order. They always have a $20 special which includes tax: a double cheese burger with a large fries and a milkshake. Try the milkshakes, if you like shakes. I tried the black raspberry one and it was de-lish!”
