The service was extraordinarily slow and my order was wrong. The redeeming factor was the manager removed my meal from the check and gave me my correct meal to go as I was leaving.

This was our second try at Palooza, just as disappointing as the first. Chicken sandwich like sawdust, sent it back for passable hamburger. Bacon on The Guy’s burger near-raw. Fries pretty good. Ordering and paying at entry irritating. All doors wide COVID precautions resulting, with no heaters, in a chilly experience. Nearby, so a shame, but we won’t be back for thirds.

No indoor seating which is no longer a restriction. You order at the counter yet a waitress still comes to your table which doesn’t make sense. No ambiance. Terrible wine selection. I’m pretty sure my salmon was frozen. The risotto was really good. My husbands pizza was good. My brownie dessert was not good, the brownie tasted frozen as well. The staff were all friendly and we had good service. This place reminds me of how restaurants were operating at the height of covid. We have moved on from that.

Conveniently off of beautiful Sonoma Highway, in Wine Country, Palooza is a real gem. A well-crafted menu with local ingredients, craft brew selections, wine (of course), and a full bar, make this a cool destination spot for some deelish food and innovative drinks outside on their spacious patio. This restaurant/brewery has live music to entertain you, as well. I enjoyed cool Blues and Retro live music while enjoying a lamb burger for lunch last Sunday. My companion had ahi nachos, along with a wood-fired pizza. Our afternoon here was sublime!!

We have been here multiple times and had pleasant experiences. Sometimes there are singers on the pickup truck. In general they have been good background singers but this last time we were at the restaurant the singer was so horrible and so loud we hurried through our meal to get out of there.

Lobster Mac is fantastic...I've had it twice now... Fish and chips was a little greasy, maybe overcooked exterior, but the fish inside was stil tasty. Service was superior!

What a great place to hang out and eat delicious food. We had the poke nachos which were out of this world. The tuna was fresh and the dish had just the right amount of sriracha aioli. The pickled cucumbers added a great acidic balance. We also ordered the fish and chips. These are the best fish and chips in the county. The batter is light, yet crispy and the fish is super fresh. We had ours with truffle fries but you can also get garlic, ghost or Greek. And the drinks. While they have a great wine list, after all it is wine country, pay attention to the drink menu!!! The Don Quixote and Mai Tai Have Another were yummy and thirst quenching. Lastly, the person who greets you and takes your order before you are seated, was very knowledgeable about the menu and had a great, engaging personality. And the team in the dining area matched the great customer servicer of the hostess. As far as the dining area goes, there are lots of different tables to sit at. The patio is covered in some areas in case there's rain and the place has plenty of heat lamps and fans. Looking forward to my next trip to Palooza! Perhaps next time I'll try the lobster roll.

Our Food was just okay. Both ribs in rib salad and Chicken in wrap were dry and over cooked. Nice outside area and the band was a nice touch. It would be fine if your just going to have beer and listen to some music.

This is pretty much a self serve place. You place your order up front and it is brought to you when ready. If you want water to drink, you pick it up on the way to your table. The food was good, not outstanding.

I went with my 2 daughters and my grandson on a Saturday night. It was very busy but they handled it well so no one was waiting for longer than normal. We had 3 pizzas as everyone wanted a different flavor - margarita, hawaiian and plain cheese. They were all very good ! I would like to suggest that maybe they could also have a smaller size pizza for kids as we had to order a full size pizza for a 6 year old.

Met friends for dinner on a cold, rainy Friday night. The outdoor (covid) seating was warm & comfortable. We all ordered pizzas and salads and they were terrific! Cocktails were very good, too. We brought a bottle of wine and were pleasantly surprised that the corkage was $10. We didn't know it was Karaoke night, which was fun, but a pretty loud. We'll go back!
