While in Napa for a conference my husband and I had lunch bere. I opted for the veggie quesadilla. It was wonderful! Paired with their nice cold stout it was the perfect lunch. Our waitress was kind, personable and attentive. We will return when we are in town again.

We stopped by Downtown Joe's for lunch and had such a positive experience we ended up back there for happy hour.
For lunch, we were seated outside with a pleasant, quiet river view. We received attentive, friendly and professional service. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife had the margherita pizza and we both really enjoyed our dishes.
As I said earlier, we had such a good time we decided to come back five hours later.
When we came back we grabbed a couple seats at the bar. It was a Monday night and it was evident there were a bunch of local folks in the place. Even though we were non-locals we received excellent service and attention from the bartenders. They served me a good selection of beers and my wife enjoyed her dirty martinis. Along with happy hour beverages we ordered some appetizers...as in onion rings, crab and artichoke dip and calamari. There was nothing spectacular about any of those dishes, but they were all good.
We didn't stay for the live music, but as the Irish band was warming up they sounded like they were going to be good entertainment.
We'll be returning to the area soon and we'll be back to see Kathy and Big John the bartenders for a repeat performance because in Napa it doesn't have to be all about the wine.

Intended to go to bistro sabor which was closed Mondays. Ended up here splitting the heirloom salad and bison burger. Service was first rate. They celebrate St Pattys day every month on the 17th. Good selection of their own home brews. Essentially pub food but not a disappointment.

American bar food, soft rock music and beer, served outside. The cocktails are just about OK, the wings are good. If you want a few beers in a friendly bar, it's just the ticket. Nothing more to say really.
