“Great Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Hydro Grill makes a top notch hamburger and fries. Very tasty, cooked to perfection and the french fries are out of this world! A must stop and eat in Calistoga not to mention great music on Saturday night!

“Noisy with below average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

The 4 of us ate at 4 restaurants during out 2-day 2-night stay in Calistoga. The 4 of us graded this restaurant at the bottom of our list. Our early dinner experience was noisy, slow service, below average food and high prices. Consider going elsewhere

“A local favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Located at the north end of Napa Valley, Calistoga can be Tourist Central. There are lots of restaurants there. We went with our dogs and needed a place with outdoor tables. Hydro Bar and Grill fit the bill. The special menu had the Hydro Burger, with crispy prosciutto pieces and aioli on a tasty burger and bun. The fries were excellent. The salad was done just right. The service was decent, considering that we were sitting outside where there are only two tables. The dogs enjoyed a chicken breast. Apparently, local dogs are welcomed: the dog belonging to the people at the next table got a bowl of water; ours did not. Perhaps they serve water only upon request. Though the fruit crisp was supposed to be peach and blueberry, it turned out to be apple with nary a peach or blueberry in sight. Overall, though, it was a good experience at a reasonable price.
