“Not Happy in Napa”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I don't usually write bad revews but our group of 8 all agree. The food was mediocre at best, one of the "best in Calistoga" cheese burgers was cold... actually the meat patty was still frozen I think. The chips were stale. The Service was non-existent. I had to get up from the table.... twice, just to get our glasses of water refilled. I have nothing postitive to say about this place.

“Cheeseburger!!!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The restaurant lived up to its title of "best cheeseburger in Calistoga." It was a busy day so service was not too great.

“Noisy and busy, but there was a game on.”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Local establishment frequented by local people. Gets busy in the early evening, might be worth seeing if you can book a reservation.? Service on the whole OK, if a tad "off-hand" and "cold", it costs nothing to be polite & frienly! Menu and food good. Had to request a glass of water (unusual in CA eateries in my experience). Worth a look and then draw your own conclusions. Two TV screens showing sports with corresponding whoops and cheers (why.? They, teams/players can't hear them!).
