Had dinner at Heron's - food was very good. Understaffed, but the owner or manager (?) did his best to accommodate us. Picnic tables were a bit dirty for eating outside. Nice view of the setting sun. Minimal surrounds.

We have gone to this restaurant 3 times now and have always had excellent service and the food is awesome. The salads are fresh and delicious, fish and chips are crisp and fresh and the three cheese shrimp lunch is to die for. Our granddaughter could not get enough of the Heron's chips which are freshly made with a light blue cheese sauce and salsa. We will be going back the next time we are in Fort Bragg.

The food was very good. We could bring our dogs on the outside deck. We watched the boats come in to dock. We had fish and chips. They make homemade chips with sweet potatoes and potatoes they are like potato chips. The clam chowder was yummy. Sevice very good.

We decided to eat there from the rave reviews, unfortunately big mistake. The service was poor. Our food came out 1-2 people at a time. So some were finished even before others had food. Took over 1 1/2 before everyone received their food. Food was horrible. Hair in one plate, rotten salad on another, fried fish that was over cooked almost burnt, and crab cakes that were the nastiest, smelliest and just plain disgusting. You can tell they were frozen by how mushy & waterlogged they were. Why? Especially when the ocean is right there. When we went to complain we were told it was our taste buds & we must not know what fresh food taste likes. Worst Customer service ever!!! Forced tips. They added the tip of 18% before you even saw your bill on every ticket in our party. Prices were outrageous for a dive with plastic table cloths from a dollar store. If you want a decent tasting grilled cheese that is over priced this is your place to go.
