We stopped into Joe's for a late lunch. Food was wonderful, Lazy Summer beer excellent and the service fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we stopped back for another beer later in the evening. Highly recommend Downtown Joe's!

We didn't eat here so this review is purely based on beer. Selection of beers was quite poor and the pale ale that we had wasn't great - not hoppy at all. We wouldn't come back.

What a shame I picked a Monday to visit Napa as most places were shutting down at night or not open at all (Opera House) so it was a little quiet when we went out. We were greeted in a very friendly manner which was...More

We've eaten here before and the food is still excellent. I had a burger, my husband the fish and chips. They have a great outdoor dining area right on the river. Very laid back but excellent service.

Unfortunately this place hasn't updated its menu or furnishings in years. Very 60's. The majority of business is from the locals during sports events at the bar.More

I would probably call them at, 1-707-258-2337. We didn't have a reservation and the place wasn't busy so I really can't say. We were there for lunch.
