Making its debut on Monday, July 12, Eureka! opens in Santa Clara Square Marketplace. With a commitment to being a scratch kitchen and providing exceptional hospitality, Eureka! creates a one-of-a-kind dining experience like no other restaurant: great food accompanied by a craft beverage program. Eureka! features an elevated collection of the best local craft beers, small-batch whiskeys, and classic yet modern cocktails at an approachable price point that is perfect for the local community to dine, drink, and socialize.
“We build our restaurants always keeping in mind our values; Energy, Discovery, and Community. We strive to create an energetic environment, where guests can discover their new favorite style of burger or unique small-batch whiskey, while supporting the local community through our beverage program featuring the best breweries, distilleries, and wineries in California. Our goal is to be the ultimate dining destination for all, from the beer geeks, to the local professionals, and to the families looking for an all encompassing dining experience,” says founder Paul Frederick.
Whether guests are looking to enjoy a delicious dinner, grab a craft beer during “hoppy” hour, or listen to live music, Eureka! is the perfect restaurant for any occasion. Adding a contemporary charm to Santa Clara, Eureka! boasts its expansive restaurant seating 177 guests with a Californian modern design atmosphere nearing a 4,500+ square feet in total. The restaurant features a spacious interior with a burrowing owl mural by artist Nichole Blackburn, a modern lounge area, and a weatherized patio with an outdoor fire pit table for guests that like to dine al fresco. The center-focus of the dining room is the indoor/outdoor bar top which carries the lively atmosphere throughout the entire restaurant.
Eureka! specializes in American classics with a modern twist with its diverse selection of appetizers, all natural, carrot-fed Angus beef burgers from Santa Carota, signature plates, innovative salads, and delectable desserts.
