Great place to experience the Calif coast. Great Micro Brew, solid pub food and local flavor of guests. On the main road into town so you cant miss it. Great IPA. Make it a part of your beer tour

There are not many choices to eat in McKinleyville itself so this place is often packed on Fridays and Saturdays. The food is hit and miss. We've had both good and bad experiences here. The soup is good. Burgers are good. Fish is hit and miss. Sandwiches are hit and miss. Their pasta plate was excellent.

After a beautiful, sunny day filled with hiking, our group was thirsty and hungry, and we went to Six Rivers Brewery for some liquid refreshment and something to eat. In short, the beer (a mac nut porter) was one of the best porters I have had anywhere. In retrospect, I wish I/we had stopped there. However, the group decided to... More

I enjoyed meeting a friend for some delicious Macadamia Porter at this fun place. It is crowded and noisy most nights because it's a local favorite. Service was good - they don't bother you if you can't decide what to eat until you're well into your beer. Interesting that if you're sitting in the back corner, the band will eventually... More

Took our son & daughter-in-law out for dinner at Six Rivers last summer. Despite a drafty table near the door, the food was excellent, and the beer quite drinkable. The brewery evokes fond memories of an English "local," and the staff tries really hard to make this a North Coast destination. Most of the patrons ARE locals, as most out-of-towners... More

We ended up eating dinner here a couple of times during our trip to Arcata. The first two times were phenomenal - we got a table by the window with a great view and the food was delicious. Service was a tad slow, but friendly. The last time we went was horrendous. We put our name on the list and... More

My husband and I ate here twice during our north coast tour. They were busy and the service was slow BUT the servers are friendly and the food was good/great. They have a full variety on their menu, including Paleo-friendly choices. My husband loved the fish and chips (Halibut) and the fried chicken was very unique and a signature dish.... More

Stopped by six rivers after landing at the Eureka airport to catch the colts game. They had all the football games on their numerous TVs. I had the Bluff Creek pale ale and their nachos... both very good. The place was busy with locals, but I found a seat at the bar and was able to fit right in. Both... More

Great food and great service! The stone baked pizzas at Six Rivers are my favorite. Delicious, fresh ingredients with crust cooked to perfection. I have also tried their nachos, burgers and fish & chips. Everything has been better than average. My favorite item is their Raspberry Lambic Style Ale. Is is truly an exceptional beer. They don't use raspberry flavoring,... More
