  • Patterson's offers good food and a friendly local atmosphere. Sitting at the bar we struck up conversations with a number of local patrons, each was friendly and open - great to share stories with. Th...  more »
  • We were recommended this Pub in Mendocino. It was away from any views of the ocean , however centrally located in the small town. Good salads, variety of beers and variety of menu.  more »
  • Stopped in for lunch and found it to be a quaint little pub. It is very small but has some unique culture. Very nice for a change. Eclectic.  more »
  • Drinks: - $5.50 pints are super reasonable and their selection is very abundant. - Super courteous staff - greeted at the door and he took good care of us even though there were no seats. The bartender was also VERY responsive and kept coming back to take care of us. That is rare. Food: - Surprisingly, the food was insanely good for being bar food. The calamari was 5/5 with the mustard sauce. The large clam chowder was a 4/5 (not as good as Boston's but we're in California!). The burger with pickles and 1/2 angus beef at medium rare was cooked delicious. That was filling for 2 people. On a side note, the bathrooms are also very clean and there are 2. Overall, 5/5 pub and restaurant. Delicious food, courteous staff, and just an overall fun aura. Will return.
  • Definitely the place to go if you're not the fussy fancy food type but want a hearty meal. Plus they have sweet potato fries!! Everything was good and the waitress was very friendly! Small place and it was busy at 2pm so I can imagine sometimes it would be very crowded but definitely worth it.
  • Patterson's is the place where locals go for lunch. They have excellent food and drink which you can enjoy at the bar or one of their small tables. They have daily specials which sometimes include locally-caught seafood. If you're lucky, a local musician might be playing out front.
  • Came in right before closing, and the ladies working were friendly, helpful, and super accommodating. They even let us order food, which was so delicious! The beer was also delightful. Neat spot, would definitely go out of our way to go back.
  • Awesome low key bar with solid no frills food that tastes great. Huge tap list with lots of local brews and a good place to watch sports. Honestly each sandwich could feed two and they have some interesting ones like elk burgers too. Recommended for sure. Not just a bar.
