So, started the evening with a wait for anything. In an hour before close and maybe 5 tables filled but leaving. Only one waitress still on. It was a Sunday and slow. Still took almost 10 minutes to get a drink order. We then ordered appetizers. Shrimp cocktail, onion soup. Escargot. Soup was great! It beat everything else to the... More

We wanted to celebrate my teenage son getting all A's, and take him somewhere special, somewhere his father and I had always gone alone, for special occasions, for decades, without him, but share with him now. I told him it would be good (our son). He ordered the jumbo shrimp, single version for $13, include two sides. My husband and... More

Was are first trip to the Restaurant and not sure we would come back. The decor felt like you were walking back in time to the late 70s or early 80s. Carpet felt like you were walking on waves on the water. The Employees were friendly and attentive. Food to me was average at best. Vegetables tasted like they were... More

Service was good. Food was also very good. 9 of us had the prime rib and 1 had salmon and all were very pleased with their meal.

Excellent Jumbo Fried shrimp. Barnsider's custom cocktail sauce is unique and delicious. The prime rib and NY strip are always on point; would definitely recommend to friends.

This is kind of a hole in the wall. It's been around for a long time, and you get that feeling when visiting. The food is spectacular. Highly recommend the prime rib. I used to go all the time when they had the prime rib special on Monday.

Though the Barnsider prides itself on its steaks, you will not get a bad dinner there. It is a great place for a quiet dinner or a quick lunch. Prices are generallly midrange, but some of the more exotic cuts tend to be pricey. The atmosphere is great for couples or people who just want to relax.

Mary, Nice to see you are growing on other areas, but "The Barnsider" needs some attention too!! Place could really use some TLC in and out! Miss the Monday night special ~ Service is definitely lacking - past few visits have not been up to par from what it use to be... Years gone by had to wait ~~ now... More
