I think this is the only restaurant on the river without a path or wall to obstruct the river view. I had delicious dollar pancakes ordered just before the cut off time for the breakfast menu and my hubby got swordfish, both were delicious. Back to the view, when we first sat down outside on a perfect warm day my... More

In Napa for the weekend, with our dog, and looking for dog friendly restaurants. We heard Downtown Joe's had a nice patio with a river view, but when we went by on Saturday night it was packed, as a good bar should be on a Saturday night. So we decided to pass and go back the next morning (Sunday morning)... More

Wonderful local brews and food! This black bean burger was excellent. We sat outside and watched people training in outriggers. Very relaxing! And Wyatt was an excellent server. :)

Sat at the bar for a few cold ones while walking around Napa. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. Felt we were in the right place because a lot of locals were there and having a good time. Did not feel like a touristy spot…overall good experience.

I very much enjoyed this place. It is more of a bar then a restaurant but the food choices are out standing and very tasty. The music was a little loud for dinner conversation but everybody was happy with what we ordered. We tried each others dishes and not one of them was disappointing. They had a great variety of...

We enjoy eating here. It's a nice, fun, casual break from the kind of stuffy, winery region eateries. They are a brewery with pub fare. Good burgers and I had a great summery cioppino. We were lucky to be there while a summer concert in the park was going on! Live music, good food with their own micro beers. Right... More

We adopted this as our "local" during our three nights in Napa. The first place we came across on our first wander around Downtown. We never actually ate there but can recommend the Raspberry Blonde beer. Service was good too, so we kept coming back.
