Pacific Blues Cafe Restaurant Review: Pacific Blues is open for breakfast and by noon the place jams up with a mishmash of tourists and working people from the area. It serves decent pub food and a mean chili, along with hearty, mostly meat-and-potatoes fare (steak, chops, brisket, grilled sausages). Still, someone’s mom is looking out for you: there’s an emphasis on fresh veggie sides, meatless entrées such as polenta with black beans, vegetarian chili (as well as beef) and build-your-own turkey burgers. Tasty clam chowder, calamari or barbecued oysters make fine starters. Pacific Blues offers an adequate wine list plus many beers on tap and classic cocktails. Saturday nights bring live music to shake up sleepy Yountville, featuring local and occasionally nationally-known performers. A good choice for casual pub fare and a cold brew under a patio umbrella.
