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!

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
