Napa is my favorite vacation destination. Filled with gorgeous vineyards, amazing sunsets, beautiful view and incredible wine, award winning food! But! If you need a break from the pricey 4 star restaurants with dollars signs to match, try Trancas Steakhouse. It is definitely not a tourist destination but they will make you feel right at home. Lots of locals and... More

The steak salad was very good. The kids menu was a good selection for picky eaters.the service was a bit distracting. It was all with good intentions though. We will have to try it again some other time (although last time butter was dropped on our guests.

Pleasantly laid back and down to earth. The food is consistently good and the tandem service always seems to make me smile when I need something. Good energy and local nostalgia off the tourist route. Love dipping the roast sandwich now and then too.

Two couples sat down for a nice lunch in a traditional steak house. This is it. Prime rib, new your, top sirloin and french dip are all available, along with several wonderful salad choices. The food prep is consistent, and the offerings are tasty.

Trancas Steakhouse is often looked down upon by the uppity locals that feel the place is dated and not hip. There is nothing trendy about this place, but the food is good old fashioned fare. The steaks, prime rib, fries, salads and deserts and consistently good and the service is great, too. There are lots of places for tourists, but... More

We had an excellent dinner. After the delicious prosciutto-wrapped prawns, my husband had prime rib. As advertised, it was the BEST! It is equal to his previous top-best prime rib & may even exceed it. My chicken dish was superb, the basil pesto was truly inspired. The staff here are terrific: attentive without being intrusive, helpful if u need a... More

I always compare all the high end steak houses to this place. It might have a dive bar scene, but don't let the decor fool you. The steaks are quite good, excellent for the $$ value that the other high end steak houses charge. I always compare their prime rib cut to any in the Napa area. Great flavor because... More
