Definitely a fun spot, especially on the weekends. Get their specialty big mug cocktails. Long Island, Tokyo Tea and I think a root beer one! The clientele here are mostly gay, and all gay friendly.

I've been going to the Rainbow Cattle Company on Main Street in 'downtown' Guerneville since they first opened, years and years ago. I've ALWAYS had a good time! Their bartender's memory's are faultless: after serving you once or twice, they'll remember your favorite drink every...More

This is a regular of ours in Guerneville. Still bemused by their pricing, when and what happy hour is? They don't take credit cards which is annoying in 2015!

I've been going to Guernville for my vacation spot over 10 years and I always make the Rainbow Cattle Company my first stop. It's like the welcome mat to Guernville. I'm glad that after all this time, it still feels like an old friend! Thanks
