“Great food and Great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

RV'ing across California we stayed next to this small pub in Sonoma county in our rv. Recommended by our park manager we never expected the food and service would be so awesome. After a dinner we stuck around to meet some of the staff and locals and found the stop to be on our "return trip list". Special thanks to Brenda and Laura for local travel tips!

“Try the garlic fries and Heffevissen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

My husband, 2 yr old son, friend and I came here based on a friend's recommendation. I wasn't a fan of the way it looked inside, so we ate outside under umbrellas. Had delicious wings, outstanding garlic fries, fabulous sesame chicken salad. Local Heffevissen with lemon was perfect on a really hot day. Food and service was great.

“Definitely a dive, but fries and wings great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2010

This place is different, but in a good way. If you come to the wineries in this area, or are on the way to Korbel, definitely make this a stop on your itinerary. The wings are really good and I think I may smell like garlic for a week from the fries, but YUMMMMMMM.

“Don't be put off by the outside appearance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2010

Don't be put off by its outside appearance. The Russian River Pub turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Our food was well prepared and arrived in a timely manner. The local beers were excellent. Our hostess/waitress was the owner and we received a brief history of the pub. For you Food Network fans the pub was featured on the very 1st episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We were told that Guy lives nearby and sometimes stops inn. The other diners, all local residents, were friendly and gave us many tips on local attractions. Our only regret is that we forgot to sign the wall, a local tradition. All in all a great choice.
