Picnic Under the Redwoods – Outdoor Dining in Mendocino

After a day of hiking the 343 breath-taking summits, ridges, ranges, trails and other mountain features that surround Mendocino Redwoods RV Resort, you’re probably too tuckered out to make dinner.

Here’s good news – you don’t have to cook anything! There are many great restaurants nearby that offer outdoor dining and take-out. Just order your favorite dishes and bring them back to the Resort. A picnic under the giant Redwoods is the ideal finish to a beautiful day.

Mendocino Café

If you’re too hungry to drive back to the Resort with your dinner, you can dine on the deck and enjoy the water views. This tiny eatery specializes in Thai influenced cuisine. Try the chicken satay, the Brazilian fish stew, or the Thai firepot chicken. Find Mendocino Café at 10451 Lansing Street in Mendocino or call them at (707) 937-6141.

~ Russel M says, “A great dining experience! Everyone was so nice and helpful and the food was very, very good. I had the pork chop and it was probably the best I’ve ever had! Whatever you do, save room for dessert! The cheesecake was to die for!”

Trillium Café

Fresh seafoods, salads, and delectable Italian specialties. Everybody loves the fish tacos. When you order take-out or a picnic box, you can get a 40% discount on any wine from their wine list!

~ Buildergirl says, “Really great service, really great food. Because we didn’t make reservations in time, we opted for one of the custom, wooden picnic boxes that they suggested we take down by the Bluffs. It was incredibly romantic. The food comes in glass dishes with cloth napkins and a tablecloth.”

Frankie’s Pizza

Quaint, family-run pizzeria serving specialty pies piled-high with organic ingredients such as cremini mushrooms, Canadian bacon, roasted red peppers and pineapple, plus salads, organic falafel, Fort Bragg’s famous Cowlick’s ice cream, and beer. Find Frankie’s at 44951 Ukiah Street in Mendocino or call them at (707) 937-2436.

~ Tom H says, “After our walk in the Headlands, Mendocino State Park we were hungry. We found Frankie’s and they did not disappoint! Gluten-free Big River Pizza and homemade ice cream! If you’re in Mendocino or close by, check out Frankie’s!”
