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

We were asked for our drink order fairly quickly, but we had to ask to order food. The food was good and would... More

My husband and I were on a couples getaway in Napa Valley to ride the train, winetasting just hang out. We were recommended to go to a restaurant across the street called Napkins. But we spotted Downtown Joe's first and decided to go there. Came right up to the bar and was treated very well. Great little sports bar! Very... More

We were in Napa for a massage and went out to eat afterwards.I have passed by this place many times, but this was the first time I ever stopped in for a meal. Since my wife is a huge burger fan and the restaurant around the corner with BBQ had a 45 minute wait for seating, we gave it a... More

My husband and I had lunch here today. I had the pizza of the day--sausage, pepper, onion, and mushroom. It was delicious! My husband had fish tacos and said may have been best ever! Our server was sweet and attentive. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Napa!
