Downtown Joe's Restaurant Review

: As befits a proper brewpub, hefty burgers with a side of fries is the norm. But don't discount Downtown Joe's selection of salads, most notably the filet mignon chopped salad with greens, cranberries, apples, raisins, Point Reyes blue cheese and Italian dressing. More substantial entrées include salmon with citrus relish and top sirloin steak with mashed potatoes and stout gravy. Mostly you will see locals tasting one of the house brews. With eight different ales and stouts made from a recipe collection of more than 20 varieties, start with a sampler that could include favorites such as the Lazy Summer American Wheat, the Tantric India Pale Ale or the Leprechaun Worthy Stout. Indoor and outdoor dining overlooks the nearby Napa River and packs them in early with daily happy hour specials. The outdoor seating is dog-friendly and a late-night crowd throngs when there's live entertainment.
