Loved Room 2 the McCallum House
McCallum House was perfect for our romantic getaway. The best for me was the huge claw foot tub. Fantastic!!!!!

The cuisine is excellent, however portions are very large. A salad could have sufficed for an entire meal!

This quaint little place is
This quaint little place is tucked under a hotel in an old-style home in Mendocino. The service was top-notch and they took care of me on a day that I wasn't feeling particularly well. The food was just incredible: a risotto that had a great balance of flavors with just enough acid, a steak cooked to a perfect medium rare with a sauce that helps it be better, with out stealing the show itself. The desert was just as good. We love this place and we always look forward to our yearly visit.

Everything was good until
Everything was good until our entree came. We took a little long with our appetizers so when the rack of lamb (especially) came, you could see the fat starting to solidify. My husband's sturgeon's sauce had a film over it (sitting too long under the heating lamp in the I think). I insisted having the rack of lamb redone cos of the fat and the meat was over cooked. I had to wait 1/2hr while my husband ate.

Still a Gem
Had a great meal there 30 years ago. Similar experience this time for our wedding anniversary.

We recently ate at MacCallum House
Both of us had the Halibut which was outstanding. However some people staying at the same resort told us the next morning they had the lamb and the duck and it was the worst meal they have ever had. I'm not sure about the inconsistency and the resort owner said she had not heard good things about MacCallum House. Never the less our meal was fantastic.

One of the best breakfasts in Northern California! High quality ingredients, like wild mushrooms for a great omelet made correctly ! We made a point of coming here for breakfast even though we were not staying at the hotel.

A Fine Mendocino Dining Evening
My wife and I have eaten at MacCallum House since the 1970s. We ate there several years ago and thought the ambience and charm continued to be wonderful but the quality of the food had slipped. But at our recent visit the food represented the Mendocino coast in fine fashion.The service was very good, professional, friendly and easy-going. The wine list with local wines from the Anderson Valley was excellent representing many small wineries. The best two dishes was the grilled pork chop which was tender and moist with superb grilled flavor and the accompanied vegetables were tasty and nicely cooked. The chocolate decadent browny desert was the best we had in the years. Overall, a very fine Mendocino coast dining experience!

The real Mendocino experience
We had both breakfast and dinner there; both were excellent, especially the dinner as it was less predictable. The restaurant is in a quasi-Victorian building, surrounded by a cottage garden, and within walking distance of the incredible Mendocino headlands. An experience to remember!

Didn't know what to expect while staying on the Mendocino coast. Very good food and attentive service. Seafood was delicious, well presented with out of the ordinary flavors and the ambiance unique. Glad we stumbled on this place.

Did not disappoint.
We have been to the McCallum house many times in the past and enjoyed it immensely. However, the last time we were there (a number of years ago), we didn't find it as good as it had once been. We are very happy to report that the McCallum House is back on top again! We had drinks in the intimate bar beforehand and then we were escorted to our table in the cozy back room, near the window. Our wait person was quite attentive and had an engaging personality as well. The food was outstanding and the presentation was well done. We will definitely be back again.

Romantic dinner in an historic inn.
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.

We enjoyed our time at MacCallum
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.
