Met friends at Oakland airport early evening and we were headed north to Napa ( overnight in Fairfield). Needed dinner with wide range of entrees plus the San Francisco Giants game, the World Series clincher! ! Despite the large number in the bar (with the televisions! ) we got our beverage orders promptly. We debated our meal choices, made our... More

Pretty good food for bar food, lots of options for both food and drinks. Wish they had a few more low calorie options but overall it was a good experience. Manager was nice. I'd recommend this restaurant.

We waited for over 30 minutes for them to take our order and another hour for the food to arrive. After waiting for 1.5 hours, we asked about the food and the lack of bread and butter - we were told the food would be on its way shortly and if we wanted bread and butter we'd have to pay... More

Expansive Menu but had parmesan crusted green beans which were good, salmon filet which was very well cooked and seasoned, and sweet potato fries which were prepared very well. Service was great and the beer we had was perfectly cold. The cookie / ice cream dessert was excellent one of the best I've ever had (we had white chocolate macadamia... More

The food tasted good, the service was good but the prices were very high to me for what you get. My husband and I had an entree a piece, which wasn't extremely big, and no appetizer and the check was $50.

Food was edible but absolutely diner at best. Entree could have come from COSTCO. Appetizer came out after the meal. Nothing tasted fresh. Prices are 5 star. Food is 3 star. Eat somewhere else.

We we're joined by my daughter, her boyfriend, and my son for a late night happy hour and ended up closing down the place. Their drink and food specials are awesome with the best bar service in East Bay. You've got to try their prime rib sliders with dipping au jus. They're to die for. Oh yeah, and they have... More

This restaurant was a very good place, satisfying meal, friendly service, not too expensive. I had the Jambalaya and it was very tasty and spicy. Service was good.
