We were in Napa for a day, and happened to find Downtown Joes around lunch time. We went in and found it a little noisy, but the waiter asked us if we would like to eat in the dining room, which is a nice, sunny room with a view if the Napa River. I chose the chili, and my wife... More

I returned to Downtown Joe's a few days after Christmas to enjoy an outdoor lunch in the soft sunlight of California's winter. Sitting on the patio over-looking the quiet Napa River, I ordered the standard burger with Joe's beer battered fries. Never had them before because I tend to minimize my consumption of fried foods. These fries were fantastic, however.... More

Enjoyed the Fish and Chips at the bar with Big John. He was the life of the party! It seemed like everyone in the place was locals, and John knew them all. By the time I left, I felt like I was local, too!! I came back the next day and sat on the patio and had Brunch. Perfect Again.

Stopped in for lunch and brew. Sat at the bar and enjoyed fast friendly service. Good fish & chips and the house IPA. Great location on the river. Convenient parking near by.

This brewpub is great. Right on Riverfront next to the park. I had the double IPA- it was excellent. Fun vibe to the place.

Great spot in downtown Napa and with a view of the Napa River and new river renovation project. My wife and I had a great afternoon lunch sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. On top of that, we each had a great black-bean "burger." It was all freshly prepared. I had potato salad and my wife and the fries.... More

On a Tuesday night, there is not much going on in downtown Napa. After walking around looking for a place to have dinner, we decided on Downtown Joe's because not only was it the most lively place in town, but it was one of the only places in town that was even open. Inside there's a bustling bar scene and... More

We went for breakfast on Sunday and I decided to have the Bloody Mary. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up with bacon and a buffalo wing attached. Why in the hell did I order eggs (which were excellent) when I got all of the important food groups in my glass?!?!

The fish and chips dinner was the best fish and chips I have had in the US. Coming from England it rates high on my list even for fish and chips I have had in England and to eat by the Napa River was a pleasure by itself and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Their homemade beer is... More

The band was Kerouac the night we were there, and we did not stop dancing the entire time. We did not eat there, but it seemed that the drinks were reasonable, it was located right downtown, and the band kept the dance floor full. We even left behind a very expensive jacket which was surprisingly set aside for us to... More
