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

Killer bbq, tons of wines by the glass, and always good beers on tap. Happy hour is awesome, 2for1 draft beers and select wines. Happy hour food options are perfect size and price!

Had lunch here and the beef burger ( hamburger) with a side salad was superb as was the beer recommended by the waiter. Great location and wine list.

We went here for a pre-dinner appetizer. I highly recommend the cheese dip! Also, they have a ton of wines to select from and a couple handfuls of decent beer! The wait staff was very nice and quick. The food looked awesome and we'll be back to try some of the BBQ!

Been wanting to go here for years. Walked by it a million times. It was delicious. Their daily specials are great. I had a half rack of rips with amazing coleslaw. Tried their brisket and pulled pork sandwich. Delicious! Their baked beans are out of this world! Would definitely go back!

Excellent food and good, but loud atmosphere. Like other reviews have stated, small footprint in downtown Napa, so be prepared to wait from 5pm to 9pm. We waited 40 minutes, but it was worth it. When we left, they were over an hour. My wife had the pulled beer can chicken sandwich and I had the brisket sandwich. Worth a... More

Visited last week on our annual Napa visit- always make sure to get here. Never disappointed, sat at the bar. Great service. And the ribs are to die for. Hoping nothing changes when they move into their larger place.

Thank Amy W
