We enjoyed Karaoke here. The singers were all good and some were great! We went back another night and enjoyed the live music. It appears to be a popular place but we were able to find seating at a table for Karaoke on a Wednesday, and at the bar on a Saturday night.

This was our first stop in Napa and was a great place to grab a local brew before we could check in. The staff was friend and knowledgeable. There beer was great and they also had Russian River beer on tap as well. Thank you for a fun few beers welcoming us to Napa.

Having been here the day before, for some libations, we noticed they had a Prime Rib special. We went the next night, and both ordered the 10 ounce cut. It came with mashed potato's, au jus, and steamed veggies. Unfortunately, the Prime Rib was sliced quite thin, and quite chewy. The mashed potatoes were good, as well as the steamed... More

This place is what hospitality is about! Welcoming staff, great food and great beer! I have no faults for this place. We were on a short trip to Napa Valley and this place made us feel right at home. Patty is especially great, her service is so genuine. Great little place and I highly recommend a visit!

I've seen this place go up and down for many years. After a long hiatus for bad food and equally bad service (downright rude and insulting), we gave it a try a couple of years ago again. Good food, not anything that stood out, but good and price was fair. We have been going there for dinner on occasion and... More

Stopped by for lunch and sat in outside area. Quite pleasant setting near the river. Had the beer flight tasters (can choose 6) very nice range of craft beers. Pulled pork sandwich is large and tasty. Clam chowder also great. Plenty of heat in the buffalo wings. Staff were pleasant and helpful, reasonably priced menu.

I grew up in Napa and remembered this place as a great bar. Was a little reluctant about returning to Downtown Joes. They absolutely blew us away. Fantastic service the bartender recommended a fantastic Zin and the Bacon 🥓 wrapped Filet mashed potatoes and asparagus was to die for. Absolutely worth checking out!

I like this place, it was fun and had a great beer selection. But I had an awful meal. I saw a burger on the menu that had 100% Angus beef, Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onions. With those ingredients it has to be good. I didn't read it all, it also had bbq sauce. In fact it... More

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!
