“Where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The front desk at Embassy Suites told us this is where the locals go so we decided to try it. Very friendly and good service. My friend told the waitress that it was my birthday so she gave me a free dessert that was delicious! Other than that just good pub food...I had fish & chips, the special.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The atmosphere was nice, right on the river. The food was just ok. The menu overall was pretty small. I would however recommended the garlic fries as an appetizer, they were really good. The service was good too.

“Very dissapointed!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Some friends brought me here and they go often, so this may have been a fluke but everything was awful. Service was slow, over an hour to get our food. Flys were everywhere inside. Cole Slaw tasted spoiled. They blamed the kitchen for being backed up, but it really wasn't busy. After they could tell we were annoyed they were more attentive to our needs. The view/atmosphere outside would have made up for some of this, but we were stuck inside in a corner.

“Good food and Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

They have a nice wine list and I really enjoyed the Porter. Had fish n' chips which were good as was my wife's Halibut. Nothing special, but good pub.

“Good bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

There's nothing that special about this place as a bar but the food is pretty good, reasonably priced, and the kitchen staff was nice enough to serve us after they'd already closed the kitchen. If you're in Napa and feel like something other than a glass of wine, this place is a good option.
