The weather was nice and we ate dinner here by the window. It was very pleasant. I had the filet with fries, which both were excellent. Two of my dinner companions had the short ribs which they thoroughly enjoyed as well. The other guest had the rib eye which likewise was good and cooked to order. Our server was very... More

This is a nice dinner place. Dramatic night time lighting with a spotlight on the mounted elk over the fireplace. The live piano player set a nice background for a good dinner and conversation. My main dish was the risotto which was wonderful. Service was good. We were not rushed. For dessert I had the chocolate cake with ice cream... More

Brannan's has a spacious interior with a warm & inviting decor. Request a booth by the window for lunch, the Bar is fun for cocktails while waiting and a table or booth by the fireplace for dinner is cozy & cheery. Service is friendly & dependable. The menu has something for everyone: Lunch: Cobb, Caesar or Pt. Reyes Bleu cheese... More

We stopped in here for some appetizers to soak up some of the alcohol from a day of wine tasting. Everything we had was decent. Really can't say much more about it. It was happy hour, and we ate at a table in the bar. That wasn't our best idea... it was a bit noisy.

Went here at happy hour for raw oysters, oyster shooters, and beer. The oysters, at $3 each, were the smallest I have ever seen. Probably the size of my pinkie fingernail. Thought they were going to be good because they advertise their oysters on the outside of the restaurant. Found much better ones across the street the next day at... More

We came here for an early dinner and were ushered to a table right next to the fireplace. Our waiter was friendly, allowing substitutions to the menu items when requested. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. We were only sorry that we were not there on a night when they have a piano player offering entertainment.

Brannon's is a go to, "good" restaurant in Calistoga. Large servings, good service, good food. Nothing spectacular but always consistantly good. Worth a visit.
