A renovation in 2013 transformed a one-time dive into a hipster-centric hotspot. Seats by the patio firepit fill up fast on weekend afternoons, when weather permits. The menu offers an eclectic selection of comfort foods—fried chicken sandwiches (pictured above), burgers, Cajun wings, ancho chili tots and so forth. Interestingly enough, this is one of the few wine-country restaurants where artisan-cocktail and craft-beer selections trump the wine list.
