Enjoyed dinner outside with family. The guys enjoyed the beer. Ladies liked the house wine. A large menu with yummy big burgers and good pizza. Close to more restaurants, shopping just across the bridge.

Great place to go for a night out. Good food and great service. Traditional plates with a twist. Beautiful river view if you sure outside. Close to Petaluma downtown for a nice walk around to see the sites.
