Breakfast done wrong. With other choices, I thought this would be a great choice, but proven wrong. To be fair the pancakes were actually very good, but to have to pay extra for syrup??? @ $1.50 per tablespoon, I thought that was kinda bad. Forget the omelette & extras. Eggs appeared to be some pre-made mix and the cheese was... More

I came here looking for a t-shirt. I am not petite but not, by far, the largest person on the planet. And found not only my size shirt here but a multitude of choices at a reasonable price. Two thumbs up!

There is a little bit of everything here. The General Store, which is the first thing you see when you come in, has very good selection of mementos of the Wine Country. Further in is the rustic restaurant that has seating both inside and outside along the Napa River. We were there for lunch with a 2 year old, his... More

Perfect spot for breakfast! Everything we preferred was delicious! The apple bacon was delicious, eggs perfectly cooked and mimosa was right on! The service was the right amount of attention. It was a rainy weekend so not too busy and food came out fast! It's not a big place since there is also a store in there. The fireplace is... More

We stopped here for lunch on a whim and found it to be a pretty decent place. The portions are generous and the food was okay. We had the Steak Taco Salad which was so-so but probably not worth ordering again, a Club Sandwich which was good but nothing out of the ordinary and some Tomato and Roasted Pepper Bisque... More

After walking through downtown for several hours I was starving! Had the Chicken Cesar Salad which was delicious. Waitress was friendly, but once I received my food I never saw her again...until I received my bill. Would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Napa River Inn and stopped here for a quick lunch. Food was pretty good, but the service was slow.

The General Store is a bit of an institution in Napa. It is located right at the end of the main street within the Napa River Inn development and is tucked between other outlets with an area overlooking the river. The store has an interesting and eclectic selection of Napa and wine related gift-ware. There is a small wine bar... More
