We had ravioli and hot Thai noodle salad - both were excellent. But for the less than attentive service, I would give Checkers five stars.

Enjoyed Gluten Free pasta here after long day of wine tasting. Most other restaurants in town had closed their kitchens, but Checkers welcomed us. Friendly staff. Bar only has wine and beer, but that was fine for us.

Whenever I'm in Calistoga I like to stop at Checkers for spaghetti and meatballs. This last time the meatballs were rather dry and not too flavorful, but the sauce us still spectacular!

This is a fun, locally owned, appealing restaurant in downtown Calistoga. We really enjoyed the Calistoga salad with fresh greens, pine nuts, goat cheese and tomatoes. The happy hour was great because they have a number of interesting appetizers at affordable prices as well as some nice selections of beer and wine. The tostada soup was tasty and fiery. Service...

Lovely place - food was exceptional - staff was great - you know you have found a good spot when you are on the outside looking in and people on the inside are waving you in.

While out and about we needed to take a break from wine and asked a host where she recommended _ Checkers . This was a good suggestion. We ordered the artichoke dip and the combination pizza. Both highly recommended

We were a party of 5 and had dinner after a day of sight seeing. When the bill arrived, it had a 18% gratuity added. It is "their policy" to add that to parties of 5 or more. Sure doesn't give the server any incentive to give good service. We didn't get good service and the food was so so.... More

Arrived after visiting some local wineries and needed some lunch to keep us going till tea. We ordered 2 sandwiches - philly cheese steak and the club. You got the choice of either soup of salad to go with it -we sampled both and were ok. The sandwiches were large (as much of American portions are) and were tasty enough.... More
