Our party had two different calzones, spaghetti w meatballs, and a kids dish. Average food, nothing to write home about but it did get the job done. Friendly service.

I don’t normally eat or even like pizza but I went back there twice in the same day. Best pizza I ever had

The pizza was thin crusted goodness! I ordered it after sending back my ‘sweet and spicy’ firecracker chicken. Prepared in a coconut sauce it was, understandably, not what I had expected. The exchange was willingly and quickly carried out. We were, however, also disappointed by...More

On a rainy evening in Calistoga, we wanted pizza and didn’t feel like driving to Redd Wood. Decided to give Checkers a try. Casual restaurant, please service and great pizza!

The restaurant was nice and convenient from our hotel. The food was good, but not exceptional. The waitress was not overly friendly probably because we did not drink or order a massive amount of food.

We come up from the Bay Area for the best salad, ever! The poppyseed dressing and candied walnuts go well with the apples and crisp greens. The vegetarian polenta with a mixture of pesto infused vegetables and angel hair pasta are my favorite. Affordable wine...More

Terribly confused! Bad pizza. Over cooked pasta. Service is bad. Loud Hawaiian lady had very bad manners. Inappropriate language

It's a local's easy hangout for good food at a fair price. We have enjoyed Checker's for several years and this year was not an exception. Eating at the bar/counter is very comfortable and the service is always good.

Great care is taken to make your whole experience great. The waitpersons are attentive and the food is wonderful. Quiet and refined atmosphere and of course the coffee is perfect.

In spite of the loud background music, noisy patrons and much clanging of dishes and pans, we enjoyed our foccacia sandwiches--really good, and fun to people-watch from a window seat. cafe doesn't look like much from outside but quite charming interior.

They have companies in town that deliver food. I don't believe they themselves deliver but the town has third party companies that deliver.
