This place was recommended to us by the Visitors Center and the people working at the mud baths. We were in a mood for a great burger and this was it! The choice of beers on tap was also great for us. We took a nice walk following dinner and enjoyed the town as well.

The locals already knew this and would quickly scout a table and seize it, even if it wasn't their turn. It took us a... More

The town is alll about excellent wine & excellent food - but sometimes u just need to kick back with a good cold draft and a great burger (meat, turkey or veggie). This was our place for that - and we went back more than once. Good cocktails too!

We stopped for lunch at the Hydro Grill while we were in Calistoga. The World Cup was on and we wanted to watch the US play. We enjoyed a delicious lunch while cheering the US to almost-victory (well, a tie) with a friendly group of patrons. Lunch itself was excellent -- the burger was fantastic, good enough to have won...

Excellent food a bit pricey.The staff were very friendly but we requested a seat by the window. Waitress said it was reserved, but no one sat there for the whole hour plus we were in the room. That was a disappointment to me.
