We come here often and the food is always good, whether it is pizza on Thursday, fish on Friday or the prime rib on Saturday, it never fails to please your appetite.

If you have no desire to eat anything healthy this is the place. Everything is swimming in grease and our fish was still half frozen on the inside. Worst place i've every had a meal. Will never go again. This is the consensus of all 4 of us that were there.

We ate here on taco night. The meat tasted like it had been reheated many times. My daughter had tacos and I had a taco salad. It was not good. My husband ordered a bacon cheese burger. The bacon was rancid. It was a pretty disgusting meal. Won't stop here again.

A typical small town restaurant that is conjoined with a liquor store on the main road coming in to Stockton. Plenty of parking and plenty of room inside, though it is a bit worn down inside. The food - the cheeseburger - was okay, but I didn't think it was much to write home about. This is certainly a gathering... More

If it's just a pop-in for a cool one or a stop for a nice lunch, this place is a thumbs up. Friendly small town bar and grill describes the Bottleshed. You will enjoy your lunch with everyone from the town banker to the local farmer. Enjoy.

We had prime rib Oct 26 and it was very good, lots of flavor! But on other days it has not been that great. The bar scene is not me, but it's not all that. If they can get consistently good prime rib they see business quadruple! I do want to mention the service has been good every time I... More

I was in town for work and this place was only a block or two from my motel, so I ate here twice. The first time, a Tuesday, the special was taco night. Beers were on special too. I sat at the bar and had three tacos with rice and beans and two beers and the total came to a... More
