The Cliff House overlooks Noyo Harbor in Fort Bragg, a few minutes south of the campground. There is a variety of food to choose from, and the portions are really big. They've got a nice selection of entrées that are not seafood, but you're really missing out if you don't go for the local specialty. Everything is fresh, and they prepare it so beautifully, you don't really want to ruin it by taking your first bite. The last time I was there, I had the scampi, which was prepared differently from what I was used to and served over a bed of linguine. I really enjoyed it, and the pasta had me feeling full all night.
