    a locals favorite in Napa!! the 45 min wait is well worth it. literally the BEST French Dip I have ever had my entire life! the bread was perfect/the meat was so juicy and soft! prime rib was great!

    Great pit stop inbetween the wines. Service at the bar is friendly and both the shrimp salad and the roti chicken do their job well with a hint of cajun spice. The cocktails looked great as well.

    Yes people don't come to Napa Valley to dine at a chain restaurant... but make this your exception. My Favorites are: French Dip, Rotisserie chicken Kale Salad, and Brussel sprouts (seasonal side).

    Can’t beat the crowd: French Dip with Fries, side of Garlic Ranch and Horse Radish sauce. No corkage fee! The Hillstone Group strikes again.

    French dip with horseradish sauce. Amazing. Also, no corkage fee so double win. While you're waiting, have a drink on the patio at Elizabeth Spencer. I take all my out of own guests here.

    OMG delicious! Get the BBQ ribs, the chicken salad, the chicken tortilla soup (if soup of the day), and the apple walnut cobbler... TRANSCENDENT!!! Their house Rosé is also yummy!
  • Pamela W.
    The food was excellent! I tried their butternut enchilada and is was so good, that I almost wanted to order another. My friend had the combo plate and was extremely pleased.

    The Barbecue Pork Ribs were excellent!! No tiny wet-naps here, they bring you steaming hot washcloths to clean up with. Staff was great!! Perfect place to stop while touring wine country!

    I didn't care for the cornbread everyone raved about. It was also cold. The ribs were incredible though and the fries were fresh with a perfect amount of spice. Excellent.
  • Sergio M. 🇲🇽🇧🇷🇱🇷 R.
    Delicious food. The pork ribs are huge and really tasty. Also the corn bread. And you can bring your own wine: they don't charge to uncork!

    They have no corkage fee, but the wine selection is excellent and reasonably priced -- so it's a toss up. Try the Chicken Enchilada. Finally, I like sitting at the bar. That's where the fun is.
