Good wine. Good bruschetta. Friendly. We got the wrong food however. Our nice Napa Salad was rumbly adding blackened chicken. Our mistake. But otherwise lovely affordable place.

I ordered the butternut squash ravioli and it was delicious. My husbands chicken Marsala was ok but not much flavor. Our Napa salad was great and the bruschetta was disappointing. When it arrived the bread was super soggy. The bread they give you when you are first seated tasted old. Our food always arrived piping hot though.

After driving up from San Francisco, we come here first --- usually for lunch. The menu provides a nice array of salads, sandwiches and unique fare. It's the perfect place to get in the mood for this delightful town.

We did not want to go "fine dining" for both of our 2 nights in the Wine country so we dropped in by accident at Checkers on our casula night out, and boy it was not fine dining, hardley dining. The menu has a bit of everything, and between 3 people we had 6 dishes, unfortunately 4 were really bad... More

Spa day with the girls is always fun but I can only take so much hot water! We wanted good salads and didn't want to wait. We were not disappointed! 2 of us had the Napa salad but asked for Fried chicken on top. Of course they said yes! And a Spinach salad which I was told was delicious! We... More

I figured this would be mediocre cheap eats and I was wrong. Had the fried chicken dinner with mashers and steamed broccoli. Pretty decent, although I would have preferred dark meat instead of chicken breast. Helping size was good, though and taste was really good. The menu seems quite extensive and the setting is nicer than I imagined from looking... More

After a long day of wine tasting I just needed a relaxing friendly place to unwind. They had friendly servers and wonderful desserts. The food was just average and the coffee is horrible but the desserts and service won me over.
