Back in 1954 a man named Ray Kroc discovered a small burger restaurant in California, and wrote the first page of McDonald’s history. From that humble start as a small barbecue restaurant, McDonald’s is proud to have become one of the world’s leading food service retailers, with more than 32,000 restaurants serving more than 60 million people in more than 100 countries every day.

Oriental Buffet All You Can Eat Buffet, Featuring Fresh Sushi Oriental Buffet has been a dining sensation since hitting the North Coast in 2005. The dishes are prepared fresh and are visually stunning – from the fresh sushi bar, where you can watch the sushi chef prepare your favorites, to the Mongolian-style grill where you choose your ingredients and sauces before they are cooked in front of your eyes. What makes Oriental Buffet different is the sheer selection and quality of food we provide: items like crab legs, mussels, oysters and many varieties of shrimp. For the kids, we feature a dessert bar, which includes soft-serve ice cream, cakes, pastries and a wide variety of sweets to complement our main courses. There is also a fresh fruit bar where you can load up on a wide assortment of seasonal fruits.

The Banana Hut

Hawaiian BBQ

A Taste of Paradise — E Komo Mai!

HAWAIIAN PLATE LUNCH

The Banana Hut truly represents owners Ken and Fatima’s vision of a tropical paradise, a “bit of Hawaii,” here on the mainland. The Banana Hut began in a small trailer, became Humboldt County’s first Hawaiian plate lunch restaurant from the kitchens at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds, and found a home at 621 5th St. in Eureka. Fatima made the sun and painted the sky that adorn the ceiling. Her wax flowers can be seen on the walls, and art that Ken and Fatima collected over the years adorns the walls as well. The Punkah fans on the ceiling were inspired by the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. A salt water fish tank is set up on the wall. New lunch and dinner menu items are being tested continuously, like Deep Fried Spam Musubi. This dish takes Spam to the next level. Other dinner items include Babyback ribs with pineapple glaze, Lomi Lomi salmon, Ahi poke, pork chops, Huli Huli chicken, Chicken Adobo, caramelized tofu, and peel-and-eat garlic shrimp inspired by the North Shore shrimp trucks of Oahu. Our libations feature some of the best tropical cocktails on the West Coast. Our 1944 Mai Tai made from 12-year-old Appleton Rum and Grand Marnier is fast becoming famous. We feature Kona Hawaiian beers on tap, and wines from Hawaii and California.

Bless My Soul Café offers a truly unique California Creole experience, bringing the flavors of Creole Cuisine to the North Coast and offering a delightful array of fine dishes. After 18 successful years catering to the film industry, entrepreneurs, film stars and musicians, “Bless My Soul Catering” relocated to Eureka to manufacture Sweet Mama Janisse brand sauces. In the process, “Bless My Soul Café” was created, one of the North Coasts’ great dining experiences. Chef and Restaurateur Paul Prudhomme, proprietor of K-Pauls Louisiana Kitchen in New Orleans, propelled the distinctive cuisine of his native Louisiana using the popular name Cajun. He opened his first restaurant in Opelousas Louisiana, the family home of Sweet Mama Janisse (Marie). Marie met Chef Paul at a Specialty Food Show and discussed his historic work with Cajun and Creole cuisines. Chef and Restaurateur Emeril Lagasse worked for K-Paul’s Louisiana restaurant embracing the Louisiana Creole style of cuisine as his own, presenting this cuisine on his TV show. Discover these flavors at Bless My Soul Café. The great selection of Classic Southern and Creole entrées include vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free choices, and an enticing array of side dishes. Whatever your preference, Bless My Soul Café offers savory dishes you will love and return to enjoy again. Marie shows off her tasteful talent with her award-winning sauces. Sweet Mama Janisse’s Brand Sauces over the years have won over 30 first place medals and awards locally at the Humboldt County Fair, and internationally at the World Wide Mustard Festival.

Brick & Fire / Doors Down The welcoming fire may draw you in, but the well-crafted fare will bring you back again. And again… When you open the distinctive cobalt-blue door into this mid-town bistro, you’re warmly greeted both by the gracious staff and by the crackling wood-fired oven that dominates Brick & Fire. The name says it all – the massive artisan-built brick oven is at the heart of the warm ambiance and the inventive menu, as Brick & Fire’s chefowners skillfully blend European tradition with fresh local harvest. From beautifully seasonal salads and fire-roasted polenta lasagna, to seafood-stuffed calamari and slow-roasted osso bucco, the menu runs from rustic casual to redefined Italian favorites. And with that great brick oven naturally comes incredible wood-fired pizza. The doughs are created daily in-house, as are the outstanding artisan handcrafted breads, baked goods and desserts, house cured meats and olives…and any other ingredients that can be house-made by the dedicated staff. Simply put, Brick & Fire is people who love food, serving the food they love. Whether you prefer beer on tap brought to the table, or the toast of Napa sipped at the bar, this warm neighborhood bistro offers uncompromising quality at comfortable pricing. Come on over to F Street. They have a table by the fire waiting for you… And now open... Brick & Fire’s sexy “little sister” spot, 2 Doors Down, with a charming list of over 80 wines to entice, enlighten and entertain, as well as savory pairings and small plates, sweet desserts and espresso, and spirited ambiance and interludes. Located just 2 doors down from Brick & Fire, this cozy wine bar opens daily at 4:30 p.m. for some serious fun with wine! Breakfast

Providing fresh, good food, Café Nooner is a locally owned, family friendly experience emphasizing the use of premium local, organic (wherever possible) and natural ingredients. Start off with a Meze Platter of dolmas, garlic-bubba ganouj, house-made falafel and roasted red pepper hummus with grilled flatbread. Next, savor a marinated char-grilled lamb, seafood, kofta or veggie Kebob with a Creole BBQ or honey/tahini sauce, accompanied by okra and bright rice, wrapped in a flatbread. Or maybe a Calamari Po’ Boy better suits you with a classic remoulade sauce. How about Guy’s favorite, our famous “Triple D” BBQ Pulled Pork w/fresh apple slaw Po’ Boy — all on fresh baked rolls. We also offer gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan dishes to tantalize any palate! Need comfort food closer to home? Try our 1/3 pound hand-formed patty of Humboldt Grassfed Beef char-grilled to perfection with all the fixins’ on a fresh rosemary foccacia roll from Brio Bakery in Arcata, and a side of fresh cut fries! Need to appease your sweet tooth? Try our homemade Orange Pecan Baklava, White Chocolate Bread Pudding, a Gluten-Free Fudge Brownie with Mocha Butter Creme, or one of our other house-baked goodies! Wash it all down with our locally roasted organic French Roast Coffee or fine teas. Having a celebration? We also carry fine local wines (including champagne/ mimosas) and Humboldt County microbrews on tap!

T C House of Omelettes and Much More

BREAKFAST

The Chalet in Eureka was purchased by Vera Johnson March 1, 1975. The building was originally an ice cream parlor and only seated eight people. By 1981 the restaurant had expanded to nearly double its size and became known for its hamburgers and soft serve ice cream. Over the years, with more remodeling and hard work it has turned into the business that it is today. The Chalet is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. They are known for having some of the finest omelettes in Humboldt County. Using only the freshest ingredients available, the restaurant has won the Times Standard’s restaurant awards for “Best Breakfast” and “Best of the North Coast” many times over. They offer great food, excellent service, a warm friendly atmosphere, and serve a complete breakfast and lunch menu all day. Except for a minor repair job due to fire damage, The Chalet in Eureka has been open 365 days a year for the past 36 years. And while Vera is not part of the daily operation of the restaurant anymore, the business is still part of the family. Her son Bill, a retired warrant officer from the U.S. Marine Corps, now manages the restaurant, making sure the same dedication and service that have made The Chalet a local favorite since 1975 still continue today.

Welcome to Chapala Café, bastion of authentic Mexican cuisine. Located on the corner of 2nd and C Streets in historic Old Town Eureka, Chapala is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Catering, banquet facilities, and delivery within a one-block radius are offered. The spacious dining room can accommodate a large group and still be cozy enough for a casual meal for two. A festive, folk-style mural of a Mexican village decorates the entire east wall. Unlike some restaurants, at Chapala, if you do not receive your food, they will not charge you. Customers that request wine margaritas will be quietly asked to leave, and warnings that the Burritos Ranchero is “quite large” should be heeded. Patrons will enjoy Chapala’s fresh salsa, homemade chips and perennial favorites such as Sopes, Enchiladas, Tacos, Burritos and Carnitas. The Chiles Rellenos are a delight not to be missed. Generous portions of piping-hot entrées can be enjoyed with a variety of Mexican beers or the area’s finest tequila margaritas. Be sure to save room for dessert... delicious homemade flan!

Savor Old Town. Taste Oberon. One hundred years ago Dick’s New Oberon was a popular dining and drinking establishment in Eureka’s Old Town. Reopened in 2008, Oberon Grill has become equally popular as a dining destination. Using the old photograph of Dick and his barkeeps as inspiration, the Kohl family has brought back the building to its original glory. The beautiful mahogany bar was built by Wallace and Hinz, local bar manufacturers. The columns on the bar mirror the detail on the front of the building, as well as the features on the old photograph. Chef Nicholas Kohl has created a menu featuring California flavors. With a focus on quality steaks and fresh seafood, Oberon Grill serves up American food with a twist. Chef Nicholas offers nightly specials with market fresh ingredients. Herb encrusted Prime Rib is featured Friday and Saturday nights. Fresh Crab is available in season. We serve breakfast Saturday and Sunday, and lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. Upstairs, Oberon Grill’s Ruby Room is available for private parties. With seating for 15 to 35, the Ruby Room offers quiet dining overlooking the main dining floor. Creating simple cocktails with complex flavors is the idea behind Oberon Grill’s classic bar drinks. We have selected top quality spirits from around the world to add to our West Coast selection of wines. Dinner

Today, that passion for quality remains the number one priority at every Wendy’s restaurant. Wendy’s system includes more than 6,500 franchise and Company restaurants in the U.S. and 27 other countries and U.S. territories worldwide.
