This spot attracts a lot of the young locals with good beer, pub fare and live music. I tried the Caesar salad with blackened prawns and the Tantric IPA, and it was a great choice. Service is good and friendly.

Cute pub where you can sit outside by the river. The food was just okay. I didn't love it nor did I hate it. They have lots of tv's so if you are interested in watching a game go for it.

but while the pistrami sandwich was tasty, it was too greasy. Would go back and try something else, loved the great service and outside patio dining.

Our waiter, Wyatt, was wonderful. His beer recommendations were on the spot and he wasn't pushy or hovering over us but our glasses were never empty before a refill arrived. The atmosphere was causal and friendly. We enjoyed the local craft beers. The food was very good. We had the chili fries and the pulled pork sandwich. We mentioned we... More

We did not expect much since we live in Napa. But, we were surprised that the food was better than expected. Our party had a hamburger that was very large. The fish was made with wild Alaskan cod that was good but the chips were just average and a bit salty. The Reuben sandwich also could use a little bit... More

The location is right on the river and is nice for that and there is outside eating. I had chicken once there and it was covered with refrigerator type of BBQ sauce. I would not recommend it for dinner, but drinking is okay

The food was great and the service, which included printing out a map to our next destination, was spactacular. I ordered a turkey burger and my wife ordered mussels. One of the mussels had failed to open when it was cooked, and my wife pointed that out to the waiter, who brought her some extra mussels. Downtown Joe's is in... More

This restaurant has been around awhile, and their food is consistently tasty.The blackened chicken Caesar salad was delicious, and probably not diet friendly, go here when you're in the mood to indulge your appetite. My fellow diner had a jalapeno turkey burger, and had no problem polishing it off. He said it was really good, and that is a tremendous... More

Bad beer, bad food, loses music. Perhaps it's being the only brew pub in town with deck seating is why people come here. Nothing to see here, I've been thrown out of better places and this.
