We're headed up to Humboldt County (from Oakland) for a long birthday weekend in a couple weeks and wondered whether we should plan a "celebration" dinner at the Benbow Inn. It would just be me and my boyfriend (unless they allow the dog into the dining room), so we're not exactly looking for a party atmosphere. A birthday is mostly just an excuse for us to spend a little more on dinner out without feeling guilty about it ;-)
We typically enjoy the cozy style of "upscale" country inns, but does anyone have any eating experience at Benbow?
If anyone thinks another restaurant in the area would be a better choice for our "special" dinner, we're open to other suggestions.
