We ordered a barbecue platter with pulled pork, ribs and brisket – all of it delicious. It came with cole slaw, cornbread, brussel sprouts and wonderful mac and cheese. We had a big comfortable table, lots of beer and the service was friendly and attentive.

After a day of wine tasting we asked around for a good place to eat and almost all Napa locals included The Bounty Hunter as theyre number one recommendation because of the beer can chicken. We did not make reservations so we had to wait a minute for a table to be found for us. The place is small but... More

I had such high expectations of this place after reading fantastic reviews and smelling the insanely delicious, smoky meat smell when passing by. Unfortunately for me, the dream was better than reality. You literally just receive a huge slab of meat on a plate. I assumed there would be some sides, some veggies or mac & cheese, but no. It's...

Management response:

We are sorry you had this experience with us. The style of our place caters to more of a shared/group type of setting, being only a 49 seat Wine Bar. While we do have individual plates, the more popular items are the shareable items such as our Smokin’ BBQ Platter and Beer Can Chicken. We do apologize if anything on... More

The many great customer reviews of The Bounty Hunter are accurate -- we found the Beer Can Chicken to be phenomenal, and the side orders are equally delicious. We also had the opportunity to learn how the chicken is slow cooked to such perfection every time, thanks to their skilled chef, Tecate beer, and the special Cajun rub. Andrew, the... More

Finally made it! For some reason I thought the place would be bigger. I was surprised that it is basically a bar with some seating. We stopped in early for happy hour. I was disappointed to learn that they do not serve vodka. Love my martinis, but not tonight. We ordered a bottle of the house cab for $55. It... More
