While we were traveling back to Washington from Arizona, we stayed in Eureka, CA for a couple of nights at an RV park. The Café Marina was highly recommended by the staff at the RV park. They were advertising the Dungeness crab caught fresh daily! My husband and I both ordered the crab sandwich!! It was one of the best... More

We were a little skeptical when we drove up. We went at 8:30pm on a Wed night. It was 30 min before they closed. They were very friendly and welcoming, even though I know they had to stay longer because of us. The food was excellent. Boyfriend got the Halibut special and I got a Red Snapper dish. They were...

It's our favorite place with the grand kids on a weekend morning to eat breakfast and watch seals and diving pelicans catching their breakfast .. while enjoying ours. The food is good, there is a full bar for the... More

Cafe Marina is always a great place to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner. It is one of the few places where you can enjoy the lovely outdoor waterside ambiance when the weather is nice. The view are great even if the weather isn't so great. They have a good menu and offer a wide selection with something to please... More

We had a window table overlooking Humboldt Bay. The service was very good as was the food. My brother & sister-in-law are on a gluten free diet so although the choices were somewhat limited, they were able to have lunch with grilled fish (no breading), potatoes & vegetables. Unfortunately, they could not enjoy the warm bread as I did. It... More

We enjoyed dining here on the water. The service was very slow with just a few people there, but they were pleasant and the food was very good. You can dine inside or outside. They have a full bar.

This is a casual restaurant that is in an elegant setting on the waterfront with the marina and docks just beyond. You can sit inside or out on the deck and enjoy watching the boats go by, the bird fly overhead, or the harbor seals frolicking in the bay. They food is good, menu includes vegetarian choices and best in... More
