Samoa Cookhouse

Big plates of lumberjack-style cooking

Save to my Account

The last surviving cookhouse in the West serves an abundance of good food. Just across Humboldt Bay from Eureka and Arcata, this Samoa eatery has been around for decades.

Decked out like a lumber camp with red-and-white checkerboard tablecloths, mismatched chairs, and family-style meals. For breakfast line up for French toast, bacon and eggs. For lunch and dinner, diners are offered a big plate of fish or meat, salad, veggies, potatoes, bread, and dessert.

People line up for the insanely huge portions of traditional American fare, with views of Eureka. You don’t get much choice, but you do get an experience.

There’s a small logging museum on the premises.
