Since Fort Bragg is a seaside town with an active harbor and small fishing fleet, no doubt crab cakes, clam chowder and fish and chips will come to mind when trying to figure out where to eat. Local menus offer plenty of fish choices, but there are many, many more options — something to satisfy every taste and budget.
