Pleasant and inviting

Visiting in January means that many restaurants in the Calistoga area are closed for the month or that they only serve dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Hydro Cafe. Not only is it a pleasant warm looking place, the decor is inviting and the place is very clean. The waitresses were... read more

Looking for a not so expensive casual place to grab a burger...this is it. I had the burger special and fries, all were delicious and filling. Staff was friendly, location was clean and in the heart of the town.

We ended up having a dinner and a breakfast here. I had the grilled salmon salad, one in our party had the skirt steak. The quality of food was excellent for the price. Breakfast was also good.

We came in for breakfast as it was a half a block from our resort and easy to walk to. The menu is small, not many selections. I choose and omelet that is really just 3 folded over eggs as to have anything in it like cheese, veggies or meat is an extra charge. They also only give you one... More

This place has one of the most amazing burgers I've ever had. They also have great pasta dishes and fabulous drinks. The service is definitely hit and miss. If you're looking for a fun atmosphere on the weekends, check this place out. There's usually live music.

One of the cheaper places in town but I left disgusted and hungry even after eating my entire meal. The chicken sandwich was a tiny thin chewy disaster with more mayo than meat and every old couple who walked in after us got their drinks first. We checked on the order 3 times and there were only 6 people seated.... More

The bar is well attended and well stocked, food is fair american food, burger and fries is best IMHO. In the summer they feature live music on the week ends, modern music on Fridays and Saturdays, Big Band on Sundays.

Went in on a fall Sunday night because we heard there was live music & the food was good. I had ribs, they were fine, though a few more would've been a better value. The restaurant wasn't too busy, nor the bar. Service was fine. The band played 40's songs maybe & an older lady was singing. Good food &... More

Calistoga is a tiny little town and there is not much to do on the weekends for locals. This place is hoppin' on Friday and Saturday nights with live bands and good drinks. We had appetizers and drinks and listened to a rock band for a bit. Really fun time!
