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.

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.
