A word from MacCallum House
Everything about the MacCallum House Restaurant and Grey Whale Bar & Café is warm and inviting, from the sunny wrap-around porch to the convivial bar and romantic fire lit dining rooms. Combining the town's charm, history, local life and flavors into one tasty package, the "Mac" is a great starting point for getting to know Mendocino. An exceptional staff makes you feel as if you've been invited over to dinner by friends. In the restaurant dinners are served in the former library, graced by two river-stone fireplaces, candles and garden flowers on the tables or, informally, in the sunporch café. All food is prepared to order with an emphasis on the use of sustainable meats and seafood along with organic produce to create delicious fresh cuisine. The food is complimented by an extensive wine list featuring local and regional bottles at reasonable prices. There is a full bar and innovative cocktail list with seasonal cocktails and creative concoctions.Continued

Diner Reviews

  • "Their version of clam chowder was really different and really good more like a cioppino with white broth but it worked.Torta and duck breast were excellent.Desserts were really good too."

  • "Very bad service. Everyone from the host to the waitress seemed rushed and dis-interested. They were "sold out" of their signature dessert, the souffle. That seemed so odd early in the evening The food was not well preparef. There is plenty of good places to eat in Mendocino so we will not be back."

  • "We enjoyed dinner here recently during a visit to Mendocino. They have a nice selection on the menu - not overly creative but all tasty sounding. I enjoyed my beef tenderloin a lot, it was cut it with a fork tender and nice to have something more straightforward after a round of fancier cooking in San Francisco. My husband loved the wild mushroom gnocchi and he had a souffle for desert that he especially liked with the chocolate sauce. There was a nice fire going in the room where we sat. Be advised that they are particular about reservations and won't seat you if you arrive early so as not to get the wait staff and kitchen backed up. The bar is nice and you can drink there while waiting. We will definitely return. Our server was great."

  • "I'm not playing this stupid game of maximum minimum characters for a review. You can't get anything accepted. We are unlikely to return because at these prices our evening fell short of our expectations."

  • "Food was very good although pricey. Very limited menu. Has dinner two nights. First night service was excellent. Second night service was slow and the waitress wasn't very attentive."

  • "Fresh Dungeness Salad, lots of crab, and enough for dinner with the Delicious potato leek soup. Skate wing with crab cake was excellent. Very cozy atmosphere. Cocktails in front of fire in bar area. Huckleberry Cosmo was superior."

  • "The MacCallum House has terrific ambience. We were there in the evening for dinner, and the noise level was fit for both group chatter as well as romantic settings, as the restaurant had various corners adjacent to fireplaces that would serve the purpose well. The service was great! There was a water girl that was very patient with us, even went into the back to speak with the chef when we had a question about the meal we ordered. Our waitress was patient and knowledgeable as well. The manager even came by to see how we were, and took our check so that we wouldn't have to wait to reconcile our bill. Terrific place. Would highly recommend it."

  • "We enjoyed our time at MacCallum House. We were in the bar before dinner and liked the REAL wood fire. Then we moved to the dining room and had delicious food and good service. If we're in Mendocino again, we would return."

  • "Another anniversary dinner on our vacation up to Mendocino. Unfortunately, it isn't what we expected. The hostess nor the server acknowledged my anniversary notes. Our server was new (we've all been there, I'm not mad) but the lady training her was rude in front of us to her. We didn't mind the new server, actually preferred her. We had the duck four ways and it just wasn't good. Also our entrees weren't all that great either. We would have bought another cocktail or 2 and even dessert but we didn't feel that anyone actually cared for our service there and since our bill was already well over $120 dollars, why should we keep spending money? We left and went down the street for another cocktail and dessert elsewhere. We regret going here."

  • "Food and ambience has always been wonderful at this restaurant. Have been dining here every year for our birthday celebrations. Prices have climbed over the years but the food and atmosphere is still the best in Mendocino."
