Eat Fresh Chowder

Fort Bragg is a great place to warm your insides, too, especially down at the Noyo Harbor where the fishing boats come in, and especially now that crab season is finally in full gear. Check the chalkboard at Sea Pal Cove. Or just take our word for it and sit down along the river with a piping hot order of fish and chips, with a bowl of fresh chowder on the side. Silvers at The Wharf does Clam Chowder New England style in a bread or, even better, garlic bread bowl. They do an equally bang up job with chowder at their sister restaurant, Mayan Fusion, located right downtown. And to add to the embarrassment of riches, North Coast Brewing Company’s chowder won the 2019 Mendo Whale Fest for best chowder.
