I dont know why i associated checkers with burgers for a Sunday early dinner but was wrong. Instead, the Checkers menu was more about pasta and pizza. We ordered raviolis, and a salad noodle thai version which was satisfying. The mascarpone tiramizú was superb. Service...More

This is a classic California breakfast restaurant. The food is good. Servings are large. The service is efficient. Prices are excellent. Interesting combinations of breakfast fare, but also the classics abound. The build-your-own omelette is a great option. Very accommodating. Pet friendly at the outdoor...More

Being from NYC area, we can be picky about our pizza. We loved this pizza. We had it twice in one week. Staff was so nice and accommodating, wine was great. Definitely recommend.

My wife and I went there for dinner two months ago and found both the food and service lacking. Little in the way of ambience as well. Highly unlikely we will go back with so many other good places to eat in Calistoga.

The Italian-inspired cuisine here is quite good- and for those who are in the mood for something lighter, the salads are divine. Great for families with children. Gluten-free pasta and vegetarian options abound!

They have companies in town that deliver food. I don't believe they themselves deliver but the town has third party companies that deliver.
