Dinner

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.

Dinner is served nightly from 5pm-8:30pm, 7 days a week.  With limited seating, reservations are strongly recommended. 

Whale Watch Bar

It’s a different world, but the view remains just as stunning. Limited space means the bar tables are first come, first serve – including outdoor tables. Last Call is now at 8pm.

Last Call at 8pm.

Room Service

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.

Kids

With lots of kid-favorites on the menu, crayons, and a staff that loves families, we pride ourselves on being one of the most child-friendly dining options on the coast.

Chef Marc Dym

Five star chef Marc Dym was named Executive Chef at Little River Inn in 2006, after Marc and Cally (who is the fifth-generation Innkeeper) were married. Dym brings a modern twist to the classic American-regional cuisine of Little River Inn, garnering high Zagat ratings, including the Top Food Ranking for the entire country in 2012. Prior to moving to the Mendocino Coast in 1998, Dym toured the global restaurant scene from Texas and Pennsylvania to Antigua and Zurich. His last stop before the Mendocino Coast was the posh Ritz Restaurant in Newport Beach. A chance to escape the presses of city living lured him to this secluded stretch of the northern California coastline, which he now calls home.

Covid-19 Update

We are excited to announce that with the newest Shelter In Place order for Mendocino County we are once again able to welcome visitors to the Little River Inn!

For the safety of our staff, community, and guests we are requiring masks and social distancing at check-in and in common spaces. If you feel sick or are exhibiting any symptoms, please contact us to reschedule your stay.
