Found Walters Cafe as we were heading to Napa from northern CA. Strange decor, Japanese mix with American bar. Vast menu, good food, very good service. We had Italian and it was great. Don't be scared off by the decor, worth you time.

Their food is hit & miss, idk why. The burgers are usually good, and the fish & chips. Mmm Best thing is their bento box lunch specials. My favorite is the tempura one. You get yummy tempura veg and shrimp, ginger salad, garlic rice, and 4 California rolls. So good...
