Dine With Us

Here at Little River Inn time slows down enough to truly appreciate what happens when location and hospitality coincide in perfect unison. Our promise of an outstanding meal, seamless hospitality and impressive ocean views guarantees you an evening to remember.


Family hospitality meets fine cuisine at this landmark coastal resort. Looking out upon magnificent ocean and garden views, the Little River Inn Restaurant is well known for its comfortable atmosphere and enticing fresh local fare. Executive Chef Marc Dym creates dishes that are at once familiar and modern, while the friendliest staff on the coast makes you feel like part of the family.


The bar’s character says a lot about the inn itself. Welcoming. Unpretentious. Relaxed. For those who wish to complement the view with dinner we offer a complete bar menu offering lighter fare. The bar menu allows Dym to explore his creativity with dishes like Dungeness crab ravioli in sweet pea puree, a tart of fig, prosciutto, and roasted onion with a balsamic reduction, and combining Little River Inn’s classic fried calamari with Asian slaw. Blend in with the locals – order from the bar menu and sip a martini as you enjoy an incredible sunset over the Pacific Ocean from your seat at Ole’s Whale Watch Bar.


Now you can eat with your cleats on! Thereís a new place to eat on the North Coast and itís the Pro Shop at the Little River Inn golf course. Along with a variety of treats and snacks, the Little River Inn pro shop also has a wide selection of beverages, including Red Seal and Scrimshaw on tap. Enjoy your refreshments here at one of our outdoor picnic tables or eat inside as you watch the pros on the big screen show you how it’s done.


Our room service menu offers you the option of enjoying fine dining without leaving the comfort of your room. If you prefer not to see and be seen you may have your meal delivered for private dining during the usual restaurant hours.
