The menu is interesting and the food is quite good. Had salmon which was served rare (was really rare but very good) and Kumamoto oysters which were excellent. Had Chablis with oysters; wine list is extensive.

There is no specified dress code. Eureka is a fairly casual place. So I would say country club casual. Dress varies widely the time I have eaten at 301.
