Serving The California Roadside Since 1999


Anniversary Story

Celebrating 25 Years

In 1999, Gott’s opened for business in the heart of Napa Valley on Highway 29 in St. Helena, California. Brothers Joel and Duncan Gott took over a humble roadside stand dating back to 1949 and remade it into the “cult classic” destination that it is today.

The vision was simple: bring wine country sensibility to American roadside dining. Craveable, inventive, timeless dishes, made with high-quality ingredients, are served alongside craft brews and exceptional wines. All of this, paired with a relaxing, welcoming environment earned them a James Beard Award and recognition as an early pioneer of fast casual dining.

Gott’s gradually opened new locations by invitation: San Francisco’s Ferry Building, then Napa’s Oxbow Market, contributing to these landmarks becoming Bay Area centerpieces of artisanal food culture.

Three suburban locations followed, along with a licensed location at SFO, and most recently a location at the Chase Center, home of the Golden State Warriors. Gott’s expanded its menu with salads and vegetarian dishes, offering something for everyone.

With each opening, Gott’s recreates the magic of its original St. Helena location through its breadth of menu, focus on quality, and unique brand of wine country hospitality.

This secret sauce has led to Gott’s remaining an enduring American classic for 25 years. We thank all our guests, staff and purveyors for their continued support and loyalty, and we look forward to 25 more!
