Nothing fancy; basic pub fare. Satisfying and not expensive. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would eat there again.

If you like noicy places, packed with people and the beer flowing. Then this is the place for you! If not, go somewhere else, or take an outdoor table. Friendly staff and in general a happy Crown I gotta say.

This was the best place we came across while visiting Napa for food and libations. Great staff, on the ball and engaging. Nice patio view of the river. Dog friendly. Prices were very reasonable for the area with good choices. Desserts were killer. Nice beer selection. The raspberry blond was fab!

This was the only other place we ate while visiting Napa. The menu was extensive and the food was great. I love "Bangers and Mash" and they had the best I have tasted. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Napa, CA.

Fantastic beer selection. We arrived during happy hour which made the pricing great for beer and appetizers. We split a Reuben sandwich which was excellent and more than enough for the 2 of us with the appetizer (either artichoke or spinach dip-can't remember which we had but very good).

Our alumni group of 19 arrived in Napa the afternoon of the August 24 earthquake and had to find a new venue for our welcome dinner. Downtown Joe's proved an all-star pinch hitter. Walking distance from our hotel, table of our own, diverse menu of burgers, steak, pasta, seafood, and salads, plus an excellent selection of beer varieties. Thanks, Joe... More

We drove over to Napa from our lodging in Sonoma. Since we wanted to eat on the water (Napa River) we chose Downtown Joe's. We got a table riverside only to find lots of construction going on as the town was working on a flood control plan for the river. Needless to say, it was not a pleasant view. The... More

Very nice place to relax and enjoy a burger and beer. Nice outdoor patio. Service was very good. I had the burger and it was huge. You definitely will not leave hungry. Reasonable prices.

This gripe about Downtown Joes may not resonate with some folks but I like a good craft brew at a working mans price. That is why I am a happy hour kind of beer drinker. So, I go into pub and get a happy hour pint at the bar for 4 bucks. Ok, I am used to a 3 buck... More
