    Buffet style dining with a very wide variety of Chinese dishes including Crab legs, Shrimp, Mussels, Beef, Chicken, Pork, Dumplings, fresh fruits, Deserts, Soups plus a Mongolian style grill and fresh made Sushi. They even have pizza, what's that all about??
    Lunch about $7.50 USD , Dinner about $11 USD. Soft drinks are only $1 with free refills. Great prices for this area where most dining seems WAY overpriced, even for California.

    Favorite Dish: Great food at a great price in a relaxed atmosphere.

    The Grapevine Bistro is my favorite place to grab breakfast in Fortuna, all though they do have good lunches and on weekends serve dinner which I have not had yet. It's a very small place, but don't let that fool you. Those are usually the best places. They have a very large menu, and everything I've had on it is excellent. The scrambles and skillit breakfasts are exceptionally good.

    Favorite Dish: I usually get a "Classic Skillit" which is eggs, potatos, bacon, and other incrediants mixed into one.

    Laz Cazuelas is the nicest Mexican restaurant in Fortuna. It offers a very wide selection of food, all reasonably priced. The atmosphere is usually calm/relaxed, even when the place is packed full. It also offers a large rear section where you can have large groups meet. It has an extended bar, the waitresses are very friendly, and the food good.

    Favorite Dish: The burritos are great here, so I usually get those. If you have a large appetite, go for the "El Gigante" which is probably the largest burrito I've ever seen.

    There really is not much of a nightlife scene right in Fortuna. It has two bars... Parlatos which caters to the ranchers, and The Playroom which gets some pretty scragly people most of the time. Really the best place to go is the Bear River Casino, which is about five miles north of Fortuna on Highway 101, Eureka which is 20 minutes north, or for the college scene Arcata which is about 35 minutes north.

    When staying in Fortuna, a car is a must have. There is a bus system, but it is not very frequent and won't take you everywhere you want to go. Some of the best sights are out of the way. Also, while it's perfectly safe to walk around Fortuna, there are no local cabs, so that option is void. Remember, this is a small town, so if you're use to living in a large city, you won't have all the services here.
