Great place to gather with friends. Reservations are easy and you can make them well in advance. The good servers vary some have lousy attitudes while others go above and beyond to help. Overall great spot for a quick beer.

We've been to Dustbowl several times and have always enjoyed this venue. Our waiter Alex was exceptional as he timed his visits perfectly and gave us plenty of time to order. My spouse thought she had ordered a salad but realized it was a chip and dip (similar to the Ahi salad) Alex apologized even though it was our error and quickly ordered the Ahi salad. He also made GREAT beer recommendations based on our tastes and they didn't disappoint!
Thank you Alex and Dustbowl for having a great quality place to go in the Central Valley.

Noise level was unbearable on the patio. Guitarist was playing out doors and sound system was so bad you could not understand him. Not a good experience for us.

Poor service, had to send food back for multiple patrons. Large party cramped onto small table. Waited 25 mins for our reserved table to be prepared (reserved several hours in advance) at least a dozen empty tables while we waited. Constant children playing behind us and bumping into our chairs. Take your party and celebrate elsewhere, you'll enjoy it better.

We had a terrific lunch at this new (2 year old) brewery and restaurant. Thanks, open table, for leading us to this great restaurant half way along our drive from Napa to Yosemite. The beers are terrific, you can sample 5 beers (5 oz pours) for only $10. Food was delicious, fish, burgers, pizza, and vegetarian options were great. Nice outdoor area with shade. Highly recommend!

always a good dining & food experience, whether casual w/ friends or with business colleagues. beer tasting experience is unique and definitely worth a try (if you're not driving). we ate outdoor on a warm Monday evening, except for the nuisance flies, it was a nice evening while hosting two visitors from overseas.

We have dined at the Dust Bowl on several occasions and each time the service is great. The servers are very friendly and want to make sure your experience is a positive one. The food is always great. We have tried several different items on the menu and have never been disappointed. It has become our favorite place to dine. We have recommended the Dust Bowl to many of our friends and family.
Keep up the great work!

Recommend reservations, nice covered area for dining, with open area for outdoor fun. They have several corn hole games set up, along with other games. Menu has a good selection, definitely recommend trying the okienachos! They are delicious and big enough for 4 as an appetizer, and they par well with the beer! Plan on a long wait if you don't have reservations!

We made a reservation on a Saturday evening and were seated on time. It’s a family friendly atmosphere, the food was pretty good, my bf loved the fish and chips-fish was flaky and fresh, my burger was ok-I got the Cali burger and didn’t care for the lime cilantro dressing mixed with the sprouts at all. Also I was expecting the garlic fries to be more garlicky. Beer sampler was great, bf really enjoyed his selections. Outdoor area is large with activities for kids and adults, lots of outdoor bench seating as well to just enjoy a drink.
