After reading reviews on Trip Advisor decided to go to Herons. This was not a good choice. We found the food very expensive for what it was.

For instance - the seafood pasta had 2 prawns and one other peice of indistinguishable seafood.

The waitress was surely & why she would have expected a tip is beyond me

The building is basically a converted shack and I am sure it would have hygiene issues.

The restaurant was empty which I guess says it all. In whole not a good experience.

The deck right on the water is a great place to watch the boats go in and out. $16 for a bottle of decent house Pinot Noir. Excellent chowder and for entrees we had clam linguine (the most clams I have ever had when ordering this dish) and fish and chips. Reasonable prices, we were happy as clams.

We went to Heron's for a casual dinner near the water. They have picnic tables with plastic lawn chairs, but the view is nice. The waitress offered us both the dinner and lunch menus to select from. I had the grilled cod tacos and they were delicious. I will try to duplicate them here at home in the future. Homemade potato chips and a sweet and sour cold slaw and salsa were also on the plate. Yummy dinner for about 15 dollars each. Parking is confusing as there are tow away signs everywhere. Decided it must be okay to park where you find a space. Staff was very nice.

We had a dinner of appetizer. Their peel and eat shrimp are exceptional. His fried oysters are the best I've EVER eaten. There is not a drop of oil on them. Next, I get the oyster po'boy. You must try their coleslaw. Amazing!

I've been coming to Fort Bragg almost every summer since I was just a kid in the 80s. So, without being a local, I feel like I know the town fairly well. I really like this place! It's just a cute little restaurant tucked away in Noyo Harbor. This past Fourth of July Weekend, my dad and I embarked on a father-daughter trip. We ate here twice, so what does that tell you? =)

We loved the clam chowder, crab cakes, and peel n' eat shrimp. Mmm...fresh shrimp! I thought the cioppino was good, not incredible and my dad thought his linguine with clams was good, but needed a little more garlic. If I were rating just on the food alone, I would give this place four stars. However, once you add in the fabulous family who runs this place and its prime location on Noyo Harbor, Heron's By the Sea garners five stars from me! Oh, I also found the prices here to be a bit cheaper and the quality a bit better than Silver's on the Wharf.
