We almost did not go to Trancas as on a drive by it did not look impressive. However, the food is delicious and a great value. We both had the prime rib which was the best cut of this type I have ever had. The inside is not much for ambiance and the walls are covered with past customer pictures... More

It was packed and we didn't have reservations but they seated us on the patio with a heater. Service was great, we had a couple of drafts, the onion strings and their specialty prime rib with the garlic mashed potatoes. Perfect! We'll be back the next time we're in Napa!

Good if you are just hungry and want food to eat. I am not in love with the place but for tourist it is worth the stop if you are on a budget.Lemon drop martini also good. Nice place if you are not in a hurry and want to sit and chat or have a business meeting.

Very nice atmosphere with fantastic food. Hostess wasn't the nicest, but the waitstaff were awesome. I had the 6oz prime rib. Not much fat and was the perfect portion size for me. My brother had the 12 oz. and he was a happy camper. We had a very nice dinner. You may want to make reservations on Fridays/Saturdays. We didn't... More

If you'll be happy with a decent steak, fresh salad and veggies and a smothered baked potato, you can eat here with the locals and still afford a few bottles of good wine up valley. We took advantage of a dinner special and were pleased with the meal. Esp good for big appetites.

The menu said "world's best prime rib", I don't know about that, but it was really good. Friendly service and a nice place to go to get away from people making pretentious wine comments.

Napa is my favorite vacation destination. Filled with gorgeous vineyards, amazing sunsets, beautiful view and incredible wine, award winning food! But! If you need a break from the pricey 4 star restaurants with dollars signs to match, try Trancas Steakhouse. It is definitely not a tourist destination but they will make you feel right at home. Lots of locals and... More

The steak salad was very good. The kids menu was a good selection for picky eaters.the service was a bit distracting. It was all with good intentions though. We will have to try it again some other time (although last time butter was dropped on our guests.

Pleasantly laid back and down to earth. The food is consistently good and the tandem service always seems to make me smile when I need something. Good energy and local nostalgia off the tourist route. Love dipping the roast sandwich now and then too.
