Great Mediterranean place, love their chicken shawarma, spinach pie, and they have the best rice pudding around(I know the secret ingredient;). Nice outdoor patio space.

Great open space, usually pretty lively, a few pinball machines, great beer selection and small plates. Love the brussel sprouts!

I really enjoy the small plates, it’s a very nice venue, great atmosphere. It’s worth a trip, just to see the bathrooms...seriously🤷‍♀️

Authentic Salvadoran and Mexican cuisine. Mom and Pop operation, the food is great, best guacamole I’ve had! I’d recommend going when you’re not in a hurry, it’s a very small but wonderful staff, so you might be there a while.

Awesome, well appointed, artsy, eclectic space, great small plates, but the drinks are very pricey. They offer entertainment in a separate area, often requiring a ticket purchase, some great artists, so check out their website for a current schedule.

This place is usually pretty lively. They offer a kitchen menu, as well as menus for the 6 or so food trucks they host at their location. There are both indoor and outdoor patio spaces for dining. Parking in their lot a little challenging.

Ferndale has a vibrant night life, and there are a variety of venues to choose from. I’ve listed a few that are popular for various reasons, I’m not necessarily recommending them ALL, just offering some options.
Sneakers is a favorite local watering hole. It offers karaoke most nights, it can be a little crowded at times tho, and the restrooms are a little rough, but interesting I suppose🤦‍♀️
