We stopped here on a busy Saturday afternoon and it was not very crowded. The staff were very helpful and we did not have to wait any extended amounts of time for service. All of the food was tasty and none of it was bad. However, I would not rave about it to my friends. Overall, a decent place to... More

I meet a friend at Checker's for lunch at least once a month. We order the same thing everytime! BLT with a cup of house-made soup. Moderate price, casual, and good service.

A small restaurant on the main street of Calistoga. A bit cheaper than the high end places. They offered a nice selection of pasta, salmon, steak and sandwiches with a nice dessert and coffee service. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. What else can you ask?!

I liked the pizza and the house salad but was taken aback by the steep prices for food and wine. I was paying Washington DC prices for wines made a few miles from Calistoga. The restaurant was very noisy.

I suppose we shouldn't mention price as it is safe to assume that everything in wine country is 50% overpriced. The service was fast and friendly and the food seemed well made and used high quality ingredients. Nothing really special.

Prices were good, food is great! It was so good my wife wanted to eat their on the second night also. We were in Calistoga for two nights only and ate dinner here both nights! Everything we had was great except I wasnt a big fan of the mussels for appetizer.

We just wanted a light supper and decided to try Checkers because of the funky decor and pizza offerings. Waitress was friendly, but took a long time to get our pizza. Liked that we got a bottle of water left on the table. It was chilled, but no ice.

We enjoyed our dinner at Checker's. We were seated promptly and our server came over promptly. The menu had many nice Italian offerings. We were cheerfully served water (after a day of wine-tastings, we did not want to order wine), and our meals were delicious. Prices were good considering the quality and the portions. All in all, a very good... More

Reasonably-priced and very tasty meals are to be found at this little restaurant in downtown Calistoga. Simple offerings with a bit of gourmet flair. All of us enjoyed our choices and would return.
