Pizza was above average!

On our first trip to Napa Valley, we spent a day in Calistoga area. Checkers was our lunch today and the pizza was above average. Both my wife and I enjoyed it. We got the combination pizza. We recommend it if you are ever in the area.

We visited Checker's while on an overnight spa visit in Calistoga. It was one of several restaurants that were listed on a discount card at the spa. The others were more expensive or bar oriented so we chose Checker's and happy that we did so. We were not looking for an expensive night out or hitting the bar scene. So... More

We enjoyed the place so much, we came back for dinner the next night too. We had an awesome garlic pizza one night and some wonderful pasta the second night.

Came for pizza, salad & beer. Good service, nice ambiance & right at the heart of downtown Callistoga. We sat by the window & did some people watching while enjoying our lunch!

The pizza was great as were the salads. Our waiter was very pleasant and efficient. We sat in a "window" booth, ambience was nice.

I had the steam mussels and some salad. The flavor of mussels was so powerful and tasty, made me forget what kind of salad I had:p

nice wait staff, good pizza esp. like the greek salad. They are always open it seems. Not fancy, but good for a casual meal at lunch.
