Geyserville Grille

Geyserville Grille has the look and feel of a neighborhood joint, but the menu shows the kitchen’s worldliness. Yes, you can get a good burger and fries, or even beer battered onion rings; however, chances are you’ll be intrigued by possibilities like ahi tuna poke nachos, Panko-crusted crab cakes, or a grilled salmon BLT. On one of Geyserville’s many sunny days, expect the patio to be a popular gathering spot.

Insider Tip

Geyserville Grille serves weekend brunch from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sleep in and indulge on sweet cinnamon and vanilla french toast or eggs benedict served three ways: traditional, with spinach and tomato, or with Dungeness crab.
