This is your everyday stop to eat the service is good and the food is your normal fast food. A must would be the Rootbeer Floats and the chilie cheese dog.

A&W root beer floats, good burgers and fries and all the right tunes. The only thing that is missing is the car hops.

We were driving through the Napa Valley enjoying the day and spotted the A&W. We always love the root beer from A&W so were happy to see one in St Helena. Service was fast, root beer great and the food was very good.

Road construction notwithstanding, stop by the St. Helena A&W for an "olde tyme" style root-beer float! The taste will take you right back to your childhood days!

When I want good fast food (I live in Napa) we head up to A&W! Really! Their burgers are nicely prepared and served on fresh buns with tasty fries or onion rings, BUT the real reason to go there is the AWESOME Root Beer Floats.

You'll find no surprises at St. Helena's only permitted chain restaurant, but sometimes you need a drive-through when traveling with a family. Or eat in. There's fast food, of course, but also grown-up fare like chicken marsala and seared tuna. And this being wine country, wine and beer. Good choice for those on a budget.

When we were told about the A&W, we thought it would be perfect for the grandchildren - 12 and 10.5. And it was!

Quick Service Restaurant in the heart of the Napa Valley. This location was first established in 1966. We have an inside dining room; restrooms; we are family friendly and we have a pet friendly patio. Our A&W Root Beer is made fresh everyday and we still serve it up frosty mugs!
