Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin' BBQ - Napa

$31 to $50
Wine Bar
Located on First and Main in the heart of downtown Napa and housed in an historic 1880’s building, the Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin’ BBQ has been voted “Best Wine Bar in Napa Valley” for years running. The old-West themed Wine Bar features an incredible wine list, over 40 wines by the glass with tasting flights, artisan beers, and a full lunch and dinner menu created by Chef Mark Johnston. The Beef brisket, Pulled pork, and our signature Beer can chicken are the best in the West! The Wine Bar is open late on the weekends, which means you’ll have plenty of time to rub elbows with some of Napa’s local winemakers.

Of course, the main reason to come to Bounty Hunter is the wine. Wine connoisseurs will not be disappointed with the variety, as there are over 400 highly allocated wines adorning the shelves for retail purchase or to enjoy while dining with us. For those looking for something a little more stout, Bounty Hunter curates some of the best whiskeys in the world.

    Delicious barbecue and exemplary service! I ordered the BBQ bowl which is coleslaw, with a pile of meat of your choice and your choice of sauce. A full meal! Brisket and ribs super tender. Wait staff is prompt and friendly. My only concern is it’s a small place so very few tables. I recommend making a reservation.

    OMG! If you like barbecue, this place is the bomb! This is probably the best beef brisket I’ve ever had in my entire life. Everything we had was good! My friend had the St. Louis ribs and they were delicious. My other friend had the hamburger and he loved it and then my other friend ordered some type of a cheese plate. I also got the baked beans which I loved and the coleslaw. Everything was so good my friend said the cornbread was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place 100% and I am a total food snob. You better get in here

    Amazing food and cocktails! Definitely not your normal BBQ joint. Antonia our mixologist started the night off exquisitely with her creative take on a circa 1800’s gin drink. Dave G. Was our server and made us feel like family with his hospitality and great information about the food, wine and local scene. Let’s not forget to mention the chef there did an amazing authentic job on some classic dishes. I had the Reuben sandwich and husband had prime rib dip. Both of us were blown away. Dessert was homemade butterscotch pudding and I practically licked the bowl it was so good! We went back a second night and I had the beer can chicken sandwich, all I can say is WOW! We can’t wait to come back on our next visit to Napa.

    We had read reviews on the restaurant. It was rated very high so we decided to try it. We were not impressed at all. Two of us ordered the ribs and we both felt they were dry. The other two ordered sandwiches and felt they were also plain & dry. Not impressed at all

    Energetic bar scene, with a couple small hightop tables, and 1 large hightop for a group. I appreciated the small tables as it allowed us to talk and hear eachother over the din. I had a ceasar salad with pulled beer can chicken on it - but I should've ordered the BBQ which I hear is delicious. The decor here is wonderful, enough to pique interest, wish there was some kind of written history we could've read about it.

    This is our favorite place to stop for dinner after winery visits. It’s not fancy - has a welcoming warm ambiance that we appreciate - and great smoked bbq! Their ribs are a treat and their Caesar salad is our favorite accompaniment. Their wine selection is of course extensive - great that I can also buy a bottle of a newly discovered label or variety to take home. Everyone we have met there has been friendly and helpful - all work together to make it a fun experience.

    The barbecued food all slow cooked and falls off the bone. When it's at full capacity the most level just from the chatter is pretty high. Don't expect to longer long.

    Great potential, unfortunately they were very disorganized and food came out at all different times. Appeared as if the wait staff had no experience. They did give us a 20% discount but charged us a 20% gratuity, wish I could recommend this place😩

    Food was good but the service was so-so. Ordered the Scotch flight from the menu and they substituted 2 of the listed Scotches without saying anything. Had to go to the bar to actually see what I was drinking. And I don't like being seated at an outdoor table without being asked if that's OK when it's chilly/breezy.

    Server was great and the table had a propane fire built in, which was nice as the sun went down. The food was good, but we were a bit disappointed in the offerings. The menu is very limited compared to what is offered in Walnut Creek - it is a bbq joint, not a chop house. They were out of Beer Can Chicken and Cade Sauv Blanc. We will definitely go back to WC but probably not the one in Napa.
