Located on the main floor of our Hotel Carter building in Eureka, California is the award-winning Restaurant 301. Recognized for its innovative seasonal menus, superb service, and farm-to-table philosophy; dining at Restaurant 301 is sure to make for an incredible culinary experience. While many guests of Carter House Inns enjoy a complimentary breakfast with us each morning between 7:30 to 9:30 am; we welcome all visitors to join us for dinner service between 5 and 8:30 pm each evening.
Our quest for dining excellence began almost 30 years ago when the Carters decided to plant an edible flower and vegetable garden for culinary use. The Carter family has always held the farm-to-table belief of raising their own fresh produce and bringing it to life in the kitchen. This practice is still observed today by our chefs, with the use of fresh herbs and vegetables from our on-site Carter Gardens. We are proud to source all of our ingredients from local, organic farms – providing you with the finest dishes from start to finish.
The latest addition to our Restaurant 301 is our fantastic Bar, also located inside the Hotel Carter on the first floor. This full-service bar opens each day at 4 pm with a happy hour special of a $3.50 martini or Manhattan until 6 pm. You won't want to miss our decadent bar menu, filled with delicious seasonal appetizers at an affordable price.
