The environment is why this is a great place to dine. Conveniently located in Yountville and sitting out in a garden with the sun shining; it is pretty perfect. The food was OK but not amazing but this was balanced by the setting.

Open limited times for lunch, featuring fried chicken, BBQ ribs, & pulled pork.Chicken had apparently been chopped with cleavers & had pieces of sharp ribs in midst of good crunchy fried batter. Dangerous! Nice picnic tables behind Ad Hoc..

We had the chicken and ribs, and loved them both. The ribs were just great and portion size was correct for lunch. The two side dishes: pasta and cold slaw were perfect. The picnic area was very nice with plenty of sun and shade. Parking was fine for a Thursday but on weekend to small. We parked on the street.... More

Third time visit for a relaxing picnic table pit stop for a fried chicken lunch. Good as always with lots of people enjoying themselves in good weather. Good atmosphere. Next time I need to try other parts of the menu just for fun. A nice simple option for food in such a great town known for great restaurants.

My mom and I both ordered the buttermilk fried chicken and we really only needed one meal between the two of us, and we still would've had leftovers! It was so rich and delicious. I hated to waste any of it but there was no way I could've finished that meal, and I know how to throw down!

I really, really wanted to like this place but I did not. After dining at Ad Hoc on fried chicken night, I expected the same tasty chicken. It's the same meat, but you can't get a chicken breast. I even specified white meat but my box only had wings in it. Bleh. For how expensive these picnic meals are, you... More

Who doesn't want to eat outdoors under the cali sunshine, in the pretty Yountville scenery with a bucket of chicken. The chicken is glorious and so is the non formal setting. You can kick back with your friends pop a bottle of wine open and have some good times in the fresh open air. The sides are just ok, not... More

The chicken was honestly the best fried chicken I have ever had in my life! The cornbread was light and tasty. The sides were just ok, but honestly, the chicken was soooo good, I didn't even care!

Well worth the calories. Thomas Kellar's picnic "shack" hits the right spot. Offers only fried chicken, ribs, or pulled pork sandwich + the 2 daily sides and cornbread. I'm from the south, and the chicken was the best I've had outside the south. Crunchy, moist, and oh so yummy. My only complaint is that I'm not used to my cornbread... More

We were kind of bummed after we had lunch here. We were very excited to try it and were left underwhelmed. We had read the sides were ok and not great but we didn't care because we thought the chicken would make up for it. Turns out the sides are not great and neither is the chicken. The chicken was...
