    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Best place to eat in the wine country! Try the Grilled artichokes, jalepeno cornbread, focaccia bread & olives, Ahi salad and artichoke/spinach dip!

    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.

    This is the trendiest place for lunch in the Napa Valley right now. They do not charge a corkage fee so all of the wineries are recommending

    The food is good but you have to wait a long time to get a table, if you don't have a reservation..The service is quite slow too, I spent a long time there that I could have used to visit the wineries

    Usually wait time is overestimated. French dip is best sandwich & ribs fall off the bone. Save room for dessert - Key lime pie is to die for.
