When you've wine tasted all day and want yummy ribs or chicken or steak, this the place! If you don't have a reservation you'll wait a bit, but it's worth it! Service was efficient, and the food was awesome. Always love ending a day in the wine country with a stop at the Rutherford Grill!

If you are a fan of the Houston Restaurant Group, then you have found its parent. Always packed and filled with good vibes from a staff that not only knows the menu but knows how to make it work for you if you need a little food tweaking! Make a reservation or plan on a long wait. Definitely a permanent... More

The smell of the oak cooking, hits you right away! You can't go wrong with the steaks... Artichokes are great. We come here every time we're in Napa.

Cornbread almost like cake! All four of us ate every crumb left on our plates. It was outstanding as well as everything which followed. Only problem was that we couldn't eat half our food. BBQ wood grilled pork ribs with meat that falls off the bones. Wood grilled chicken was also fantastically tasty. I should have known we had chosen... More

I've visited the Rutherford Grill numerous times over the years, and my experiences are like like golf game. Some days I'm Tiger Woods...other days I'm Zeke Dilwonski. You've heard of Tiger...and in his day he was the best. But you've never heard of Zeke...and that's because if you were anywhere near him on the golf course, you probably wouldn't have... More

Visited the Rutherford Grill with good friends during a day of wine tasting in the Napa Valley. We had two appetizers - jalapeno cornbread and grilled artichoke. Both excellent and perfect to share. We also had a BBQ burger and bangers and fries. Again, each entree was shareable. Plenty of food and quite tasty! Overall, an excellent meal.

Four of us had a Valentine's Day dinner at the Rutherford Grill. The restaurant itself is laid out beautifully and smells absolutely wonderful as soon as you walk in. The wine list is extensive. We were delighted with the homemade corn bread and the grilled artichokes we ordered as an appetizer with our wine. For the main course we each... More

I have eaten here tons of times and have never been disappointed. They're probably best known for their ribs and with good reason. I've never had better -- anywhere.

This is a busy spot along the main road in Napa Vallley. We had a 45 minute wait, so we walked next door to do a wine tasting while waiting and it worked out perfectly. When we came back we were seated immediately. Service was strong and very attentive. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I would go... More

I love this place. Casual wine country mainstay with consistently quality food. I come as often as possible and am never disappointed. My go to for lunch is the French dip which is out of this world. The bun is soft and chewy and the meat tender. Add some horseradish and an jus and I am in heaven. The coleslaw... More
