Rutherford Grill ****


Cuisine: American

Description & Atmosphere
The Rutherford Grill, located in the heart of Napa Valley (at the crossroads of Hwy 29 and Rutherford Road), is one of our favorite restaurants. Popular with visitors and locals alike — be prepared to wait, especially during peak times.

Great food, terrific ambiance in a FUN, casual, comfortable setting, friendly service and reasonable prices best sums up the Rutherford Grill.

Enjoy fabulous mouth-watering "fall off the bone" BBQ Pork Ribs, delicious Wood-Fired Rotisserie Chicken and Leg of Lamb, killer Prime Rib, ditto the Prime Rib French Dip ...you get the idea :)

Wonderful Fresh Salads — Sashami Tuna Salad seared rare with avocado, cucumber, mango and tomato (pictured right) is superb.

Depending on the season and availability, we highly recommend the Fresh Heirloom Tomato Salad topped with Gorgonoza cheese and fresh basil — it's bursting with flavor.

Visiting Brits will enjoy the Bangers and Mash — locally-made sausages with spicy, deli-style mustard served with mashed potatoes colcannon.

Famous Cornbread in the Skillet
Don't pass up Rutherford Grill's famous Cornbread in the Skillet (stuffed with a hint of mild jalapenos and crisped to perfection — it's the BEST cornbread we've ever tasted, bar none!

Al Fresco Dining & Fun Patio Bar
Head outside to the restaurant's spacious patio, complete with fountains and stone tables. It's a fun place to celebrate a special occasion or just hang out for a relaxing meal with your honey.

It's a great place to people-watch while soaking up the sun during warm summer days. And an inviting wood-burning fireplace keeps you warm on chilly Napa evenings.

Outdoor Patio Bar is open during the day and evening Thurs-Sun (weather-permitting).

Rutherford Grill Bar
Rutherford Grill's FUN bustling bar is an ideal place to drink and people-watch. Enjoy a cocktail and an appetizer while waiting to be seated — they have great Cosmo's and an amazing Spinach & Artichoke Dip.

Great California Wines
Enjoy a wonderful selection of Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley and California Wines.
