Great pizza and wine!

Most reviews we read on Trip Advisor were positive. Our experience was also very positive. After a long day of tasting and sightseeing we had a relaxing dinner. We shared a salad and pizza. Not the best in town but good. Service was reliable but not outstanding. A nice selection of wines.

Just what was needed after a 3 hour drive into Napa valley, relaxing great food in a well decorated restaurant. Good wine prices and reasonable food prices led to a very pleasant evening.

Sat right away with no reservation. Staff was friendly and attentive. Both dishes were tasty and worth the money spent. Clean place. Would return.

Just finished a wine tasting at the Castillo de Amorosa, and needed something to eat. Found this place walking downtown. The bread is great... Light and airy. The lunch special was just perfect. Hubby had a calzone pepperoni with tomato bisque soup, and I had the salad with a checkers BLT. Food was great... Really hit to spot, hubby said... More

Three words. Pan fried salmon. It was great! Mashed potatoes and spinach were delicious. This is our favorite place to eat in Calistoga. Casual but high quality food! Get a 10% coupon off at the Visitor's Center.

With a name like Checker's you might think grill but a real surprise. Really good food. We had a variety of different dishes and all were excellent. Great service will come again when in Calistoga.

If you're looking for a causal, comfortable place with great food, stop here. It was a warm day so we wanted to stay in shorts but have a good meal, so glad we found Checker's. I had the salmon but the butternut squash pasta was good too. Friendly service with a view of downtown foot traffic.

Reasonably priced menu and good quality! We have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner and serving size is large if you are sharing multiple items. The Focasia bread is outstanding!

Stopped here late for some pizza and salad. Was good, sat with view of street. Prices were good, not necessary a place I would go for a sit down dinner normally as it is pretty casual.
