I really, really wanted to like this place but I did not. After dining at Ad Hoc on fried chicken night, I expected the same tasty chicken. It's the same meat, but you can't get a chicken breast. I even specified white meat but my box only had wings in it. Bleh. For how expensive these picnic meals are, you... More

Who doesn't want to eat outdoors under the cali sunshine, in the pretty Yountville scenery with a bucket of chicken. The chicken is glorious and so is the non formal setting. You can kick back with your friends pop a bottle of wine open and have some good times in the fresh open air. The sides are just ok, not... More

The chicken was honestly the best fried chicken I have ever had in my life! The cornbread was light and tasty. The sides were just ok, but honestly, the chicken was soooo good, I didn't even care!

Well worth the calories. Thomas Kellar's picnic "shack" hits the right spot. Offers only fried chicken, ribs, or pulled pork sandwich + the 2 daily sides and cornbread. I'm from the south, and the chicken was the best I've had outside the south. Crunchy, moist, and oh so yummy. My only complaint is that I'm not used to my cornbread... More

We were kind of bummed after we had lunch here. We were very excited to try it and were left underwhelmed. We had read the sides were ok and not great but we didn't care because we thought the chicken would make up for it. Turns out the sides are not great and neither is the chicken. The chicken was...

Ribs 6/10 no love here. Most didn't finish Cole slaw soggy and unhappy 5/10 not up to Keller standards Corn bread 7/10 tasty but suffered sitting in try... More

Honestly for the value, this is a must... Delicious fried chicken, corn bread and salad in a cute private park -like setting tucked off the Main Street. It truly is an amazing way to enjoy Thomas Keller's cuisine in a unique setting!

They have 2 menu items and prefix sides, so do not expect many choices. You can eat outside or take it to go and picnic at a local winery. But the food is absolutely the best. My wife and I split a fried chicken (3 pieces) and it was plenty for a lunch even though I am a big eater.... More

Fortunately, you can order online and hhave it ready for you at a specific time. There's a small shack for ordering and another area set up for pickup so it can be... More

It's been years since I've had "proper" fried chicken. This place was insane. Even the pasta salad was perfect. Addendum is right behind Ad Hoc (you'll see Ad Hoc easily from the street) and there is parking in the back.
