A word from The Barlow Room
The Barlow Room is a comfortable and historic restaurant and bar in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley wine country. The restaurant features a casual dining menu, inspired by Northwest cuisine, with a distinctive yet classic cocktail, wine and beer selection. The décor is inspired by the Oregon pioneer spirit and local history. The exposed brick walls showcase historic photos of Dayton and the local area, providing a sense of history, tradition and pride. The layout of The Barlow Room is “open concept”, with comfortable lounge seating and bar open to the dining room area. The energy and atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxed yet vibrant, drawing its distinctiveness from the exposed brick walls, dark wood flooring, majestic mahogany bar and rich décor. The Barlow Room is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 am to close. Take out is available during open hours.

    This new restaurant from the Joel Palmer House folks is a great alternative to the JPH in Dayton. This casual spot has great food, even a couple of menu items from the JPH. Good bar and great service.

    Nice bistro atmosphere and menu. We especially liked that fact that it wasn't too noisy so our group of 7 could easily hold a table wide conversation. The mushroom pasta dish and the grilled chicken sandwich were both really good. Thanks.

    A spin off from the up scale Joel Palmer's just down the street, this is a good place for bar type food. Good burgers, fish and if you happen to like Mac and Cheese try theirs...it has lobster in it. Never ever thought...not even once in my life...that I would pay $19 for M&C but this was definately worth it! A hearty plate/bowl of lobster bisque flavor with nice lobster chunks and a very creamy cheese base. Enjoy this place at least once while wine tasting in the valley!

    We had been wanting to try the Barlow Room for awhile and were very impressed. The ambiance is casual but classy with beautiful exposed brick and an awesome antique bar, the menu small but with great choices including local ingredients. The staff is friendly and attentive, great whiskey list and house cocktails. The night we visited was the chef's last night, hoping the quality remains the same!

    ...to the Oregon wine country scene. Oregon's great red wines deserve a great steak, and The Barlow Room delivered! The vintage space is warm and inviting. The old bar is a treasure. The service was top notch. And the food was outstanding...as was the wine list. A new must stop for anyone visiting Oregon's wine country.

    Recently visited the Barlow Room for our anniversary. The prohibition-era decor is right up my alley. I expected a bit dimmer lighting and more private tables, but I was not disappointed. Overall, the ambiance works. Cons: I requested a booth and was told no, the booths were for larger parties. (I wanted a bit more privacy for me and my sweetie on our anniversary.) We were then seated next to a booth that had a couple seated in. The other two booths went to parties of three. We had drinks, apps, meals, wine, desserts, the whole nine--spent a pretty penny--worth a booth I think. Pros: the food was delicious--the steak bites with onions app was a home run--and we were given free sparkling white wine, nice touch! Servers were nice. 8/10

    The Barlow Room was a disappointment. The food was nice but the service was very poor. Our waitress was inattentive. My wine glass had been empty for a long time before she finally stopped by to offer a refill. Our salads were served just moments before our entrées. We were offered the wine "special" but not told it was more expensive than any on the menu. They advertised free WiFi but our waitress did not know the password and when she finally found out, it did not work anyway.
