Little River, CA, Restaurants
Indulge in the perfect all American breakfast when you dine at our sister property’s restaurant, Circa ‘62. Start your day off with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and a mouthwatering meal. We highly recommend the Slow Death on a Raft, with crispy hash brown, and paired with housemade pork sausage gravy, and eggs, just the way you like them! It’s the perfect way to fuel up before heading out for the day.
Enjoy fresh caught-fish and locally inspired dishes at Wild Fish. Boasting a menu that comes from “outside your door and onto your plate,” this is a restaurant that you would be remiss to leave out of your next Mendocino food tour. The restaurant pairs an unbelievable location with food that is equally as impressive. Fresh oysters, crispy halibut, and pan-seared sole are all seasonally available. With close to ten local purveyors providing the restaurant with fresh produce and wild-caught fish, no restaurant can compete with Wild Fish’s connection to area farmers and fisherman.
5200 Restaurant & Lounge
Embrace panoramic views of the Mendocino coast while delighting in some of the most exquisitely prepared fare on the Pacific Coast. 5200 Restaurant and Lounge is unmatched when it comes to high-end dining in Little River. On the menu, you’ll find everything from jumbo lump crab cakes to center-cut filet. Adjacent to the restaurant, the 5200 lounge features an atmosphere of ageless beauty and class to pair with hand-crafted cocktails. There isn’t a better way to start out your night.
The MacCallum House Restaurant claims to be Mendocino’s finest restaurant, and they aren’t far off. Where artfully crafted dishes meet the quaint, welcoming atmosphere of the MacCallum House Inn, an elegant dining experience awaits. If you’re in the mood for seafood, the wild king salmon and the pan-seared scallops are some of the best in the area. If you just can’t force yourself to pick one thing out of the menu’s many tantalizing options, the restaurant also offers a tasting menu that changes seasonally!
