As others have noted, parking was a bit of a challenge. That aside, the joint was jumping and a little noisy but OK; the burgers and fries very good. Beer selection a little limited, but we managed to make do. Server was friendly, efficient; food was hot. Would return.

Parking was atrocious...hardly any parking available. We were treated to a lunch here by a friend that was impressed that the Vista used local grass-fed beef. To us the burgers were good but average. I thought the fries were very good. Now as I read some of the other reviews I wish I had put some of their selections of... More

Nice lunch on their sunny patio - server was friendly & offered samples of beer before ordering. Delicious burger & the options of dozens of toppings (including peanut butter!) - steak fries were sizzling hot & nicely salted. Turkey & cranberry sandwich was really good and salad was fresh & tasty. Their house Chardonnay was quite good as well -... More

We went for a quick bite to eat. It was pretty full so we were squeezed onto the end of the bar next to the kitchen. It was good to be in the thick of things. The staff were lovely and attentive. The food was excellent. We had the skewer of tuna wrapped in bacon (the motto of this country... More

If you like toppings on your burgar then this is the spot for you. Too many options to list but if they dont list it ask for it and they just might have it. Great choice of beer.

Good burgers and great fries. This place cooks with locally grown meat, vegetables and cheese and local breweries and wineries. We haven't been there during the live music but it seems too small to enjoy live music

I ate here with my wife one evening. We split a burger and chicken wings. The burgers are all local meat cheese and bun. They did not disappoint. The burgers are the best we have ever had fresh and very tasty. They also have good craft beer. Service was very quick and friendly. Fun place!

The burgers are large, juicy, and delicious. The place is not too loud and crowded if you arrive early and the atmosphere, wait staff, and prices are awesome. Everything is freshand local with the buns coming from the bakery literally 500 feet down the street, the beef being raised 4 miles south, and the cheese coming from less than 200... More

The burgers here are all they are cracked up to be and more. The wait staff was very friendly and came out to our picnic table often. The only problem is that the place is small and popular. Get here early for dinner if you want to sit inside. If not, they have outdoor table seating but you miss the... More

Our hotel told us "everything in town closes at 9pm," and the only food option was fast food. I'm glad we didn't trust that advice. We ordered a burger (grass-fed beef!) and a chef salad. In lieu of fries, we got a green chili stew. Everything, including their fresh-squeezed lemonade, was fantastic. Very glad we stopped here.
