Ribs them Ribs!

If you're looking for some good ribs and cornbread then look no more. This restaurant has the most tender and flavorful ribs. You know when they say if it falls off the bone, then it's good cooking. Put away your steak knives cause you won't need it. I moved here 10 years ago from Hawaii As you... read more

We were pointed to the Rutherford Grill by Gary at Folley Johnson winery. Really appreciate the advice as the place does not disappoint! Great portions, quality, service and value. Try the Prime Rib Beef Dip, you won't be disappointed. The Tuna Salad was also a great pick amongst our table.

At Rutherford Grill you can! The grilled artichoke was simultaneously crisp and tender, and the dip was thick and creamy. Also, the key lime pie was the best I've had outside Florida.

This is a great spot right on Rt 29 - the main winery road through Napa. The interior is beautiful, and our service was excellent despite the large lunch crowd. The food is delicious!

Stopped to have a quick bite before our wine tasting. Wife ordered a Grilled Chicken Salad and it was awesome. Chicken, cilantro, peanut sauce, honey mustard vinegrette, corns, carrots and fresh lettuce. The taste was very nice and super refreshing! I ordered the Shrimp Caesar Salad and was very impressed. I make a great Caeser salad and this was as... More

The food was good and prices were reasonable. You can bring your own wine here and they do not charge a corkage. I didn't realize that this restaurant is owned by the same company as Houston's and Bartlets, so the food is pretty much the same.

We were there will a large group and almost everyone liked their meal... the veggie burger got a negative review but the fish and other dishes got rave comments. I would recommend this beautiful restaurant located in Napa valley. High quality service! It is a bit pricey!

Perfect. They started me beeing satisfied with the question: "how do you like your burger?" "Rare-medium-well done?" The resulting burger was really perfect example for food handicraft.

Grilled artichokes, steaks and a bottle brought in from a winery visit on the way. Such a great place for a meal and people watching. Make a reservation, be on time and try to sit away from the front door, where too many people awaiting hostess check in mill about.
