I have been to the Hydro bar many times it WAS one of my favorite places in Calistoga. This time was a very different experience. I ordered the tropical shrimp cocktail. My shrimp were frozen and I could not cut thru the shell and frozen shrimp with the spoon I was provided to eat with. When I told my server... More

Fun place with great food, drinks, service and some nights live music. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and came with the choice of 3 different types of sauce.

The Hydro Grill is a relaxed place with live music, good attentive staff and the food? Pretty darn good. If you're not in the mood for an overly priced meal and want an excellent drink selection? This is the place.

Terrific, friendly place that satisfies your craving for a burger and tempts you with yummy old time favorites like macaroni & cheese with smoked bacon or ham. The atmosphere is old-timey and comfortable and the prices reasonable for the quality and quantity.

We went for lunch and though the food was ok, but nothing special. The wedge salad was expensive and you only get the lettuce and dressing and actually have to pay $4 for the bacon. The Posole was good, but a bit bland.

This restaurant has good burger options, from meat, fish to veggie. And they do offer a local dark beer, which is a plus for me. Good service, friendly atmosphere. Not expensive.

We ate lunch there and weren't disappointed. The food tasted great and portions were filling. My husband got the hamburger with garlic fries (yum) and I got the chicken salad. Both were delicious and not too expensive. We will be back.

With all the restaurants in Calistoga it is hard to make a decision where to eat. As we wandered along the main street looking at the menus what drew us in to Hydro Grill was the mix of dishes including small plates and salads so you could have a lighter meal. Limited wine list but extensive beer and spirit offerings.... More

We actually came here twice during our stay in Calistoga, both times for lunch. I like the fact that there are several good vegetarian selections, and that you can add on a side salad with a sandwich order for a reasonable price. We did not order any alcoholic drinks, so I can't comment on the bar offerings. However, the menu... More
