We watched the Ohio State game here over Thanksgiving weekend. The food was amazing and the service was absolutely incredible! These are great people! We had a blast watching the game, eating and meeting new people!

We ate here on Thanksgiving night. The bar was doing good trade, the dining room was about half full. To get to it you pass through the brewery. Their stout is fairly good or I might have gone for a lower rating! My wife and I both took the Thanksgiving special, a turkey dinner with all the extras. The centre... More

When we first arrived to Napa we took a tour of the downtown area. We stumbled upon Downtown Joe's. My husband, named Joe, had to go in. There we found a quaint stop to belly up and grab some local brew. We had a nice conversation with a couple of locals.

I like pubs. And Downtown Joe's brews about 6 different types of brews right behind the bar. Friendly downtown place to enjoy a cold one, and even switch to a local wine if you so wish. Didn't get the opportunity to check out the eats, but folks at seated nearby tables were seen enjoying some mighty juicy looking burgers. The... More

Excellent casual cafe with outdoor tables and river views. Food is excellent, not fancy. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Great for vegans and vegetarians as well.

This is a really great place to have a microbrew and is right in in downtown Napa, where you can take a nice walk before or after dinner. I would highly recommend the Double Secret IPA ... yum ! Also, if you're hungry, the Pulled Pork Sandwich is to die for, but be prepared because it's a big one. Absolutely... More

Excellent food and incredible service. Food arrived pretty quickly and my steak sandwich was delicious. Staff was constantly coming by to make sure everything was okay. Also, sitting outside by the river added to the experience.

Joe's has incredibly fast service, great variety of pub food and fabulous taste. The BBQ pulled pork with cole slaw was delicious - sweet, tangy BBQ, tender pork and fresh, light cole slaw. Only issue was the plain bun (you're near sourdough country!!!) My husband's Buffalo Burger was flavorful, but the beer-sauteed onions were WAY too spicy (with supposedly just... More

Stopped in for dinner after a long travel day. We had booked a reservation for the dining room for a table with a view of the river. We were seated shortly upon arriving by a friendly hostess. We were asked for our drink order fairly quickly, but we had to ask to order food. The food was good and would... More
