“Really is Great”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Just had the famous Chicken.
It was incredible. Definitely a MUST DO if you are nearby. Service was great. We only waited 8 min. for our " to go bag".
Side dishes were really good too.

“Yummy chicken”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Bought buttermilk fried chicken to take along on a road trip to Carmel. Also bought a mix set to make the chicken at home. Since we do not have buttermilk in Norway, they called the chef to get advice on what to use. Great food, great service!

“Amazing, worth every penny”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Had the buttermilk friend chicken and my husband had the ribs so we could taste both. Absolutely amazing and worth every calorie. Picnic area is adorable and so peaceful, the views are gorgeous. My only slight qualm was that the staff was a bit terse. So glad my friend found out about this and ordered out lunch! This is a must do in napa.

“Believe the hype”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The fried chicken is OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. And I consider myself a fierce lover of fried chicken with very high standards. This really is fried chicken near-perfection: juicy, well-seasoned meat encased in a golden brown, shatteringly crisp crust that stays connected to the meat. Is it a little pricy? Eh, not really when you consider the quality and care of the product. Then again, I'm from NYC where 3 lg. pieces of gourmet fried chicken and 2 sides could easily cost 25 dollars and they're not sold in a gorgeous vegetable garden. I agree with anyone that says the sides aren't great, but that chicken alone is worth the hr-plus drive from San Francisco. Here's a tip: order in advance (online or on the phone) and tell them what time you'll be there so you don't have to wait 15 min. once you get there. Don't worry if you're a bit late, this magical chicken stays perfectly crunchy!

“addendum - lunch”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Just had the wonderful buttermilk fried chicken (3 pieces) and the bbq pork ribs & pulled pork. Both lunch came with potato salad, ad hoc cole slaw, and honey cornbread. The food was excellent and the garden beautiful. You will not be disappointed. It's a must try!
