Husband said the pizza was great! My thoughts: The crust was yummy but other than that just an average pizza. We drank water and they brought it in a wine bottle which was cool but they didn't provide ice. Weird.

While I don't really have anything negative to say about our experience here... I don't have anything great to say either. Maybe I shouldn't even be writing a review?!?! LOL! Everything tasted "ok"... just average. My husband ordered ravioli and I had the fire cracker shrimp. Now, I'm not sure where the "fire cracker" kicks in (I was assuming it'd... More

We had a vegetarian pizza to go. It's good pizza, thin crust. It was ready when they said it would be. Average pizza. If your in the mood for a pie.... And you need it.

We all ate well here. I loved the roasted garlic starter and the artichoke dip was very popular too. Mains were good with special mention for the lamb shank. Beers could have been more interesting.

Our group enjoyed a nice dinner here after a long day visiting wineries. The service was very good and the atmosphere was OK. Most of the food was average to above average quality. The pizza was amazing. I had the New York Strip special. Very good potatoes and perfectly grilled asparagus. The steak was about 3/4" thick and tasted like... More

I just got back to the hotel; had dinner at Checkers half an hour ago. Just happened to be walking by, and tried it on a whim. Lucky whim! The white bean soup was excellent. So was the Napa salad. But when I took the first bite of the butternut squash ravioli, with smoked chicken and candied walnuts, I almost... More

Fun and unpretentious, Checkers is a sweet little restaurant. I love the Chinese Chicken Salad. It is so good and is big enough to have as an entree or split between two people. I also loved the braised lamb shank. Comfort food in a restaurant! What a nice meal. Frequented by locals and tourists - which I think says a... More

My husband and I split a 'napa' salad with chicken, nuts, apples and some other wonderful bits. really makes a great meal on its own... or can split a pasta as well, as we did. the angelhair pasta with shrimp was simple and delicious. Informal and good, i give this rating a boost because the price-to-quality ratio is really quite... More

We LOVE this Italian restaurant! They are friendly and the food is truly delicious. They have a kid's menu that is fantastic and always give drawings and crayons. Their pizzas rocks and the main dishes make you travel to Italy... Definitely a must!
