“This place is full of charm. It is the bar/ pizza place where the locals come to unwind, visit, and eat a good slice. The food is made with locally sourced ingredients and the pizza is thin crust style. The bar serves beers and wine from the surrounding areas and offers seasonal options. The place is small so don't be surprised if there is a wait, bring cash as they don't take card, and experience pizza Fort Bragg style. We love The Farmers with house made sausage, and the Gustoso with seasonal pears and goat cheese. ”

“This is the second of our nicest restaurants in town. Patrona offers upscale food in a relaxed atmosphere. Professionals often stop by after work to enjoy an adult beverage and a swanky meal before heading home after the work day. There is outdoor seating where you may see the stars, and the passers-by as you enjoy your tasty food. Be prepared to pay $20-$30 (and up if you drink) per person, though.”

“Beer & Wine with local flavor music on weekend evenings. The air can become a little "stale" during "trim-a-grint" season so recommend going earlier in the evening or stay in the patio area”
