Right in the heart of downtown Napa, this appealing gastropub offers something for everyone, from hearty bacon-wrapped meatloaf with a smoky coffee-barbecue glaze, to satisfying and soul-warming vegetable soup. Burgers, salads, and even a menu of dressed-up fries (from chili-cheese, truffle-parmesan and sausage gravy to cheddar "disco" fries) are both appealing and affordable. The open, wood-beamed space with its rich leather banquettes and soft lighting, is ideal for both a beer-soaked game at the bar or group dinners in the bustling dining room. Solo diners will enjoy well-lit perches that peer into the kitchen, and charming servers are more than adept at keeping the party going until the last wedge of decadent, triple-layered carrot cake is devoured.
