Aberdeen Barn - Charlottesville
Aberdeen Barn is a must visit every time I’m in town for a class. The service is great; food is phenomenal; and the price is reasonable for a quality steakhouse. Be sure to try the crab cakes and barbecue shrimp appetizers!
Always a wonderful experience:). Food delicious and staff amazing. Austin took good care of us.
Good food, excellent service, nice ambience. Every time we get to Charlottesville, we make sure we dine here. Also, a great place to just go and enjoy a cocktail in quiet surroundings.
The Barn is a wonderful throw back to a classic steakhouse!
Everything was great. The food, the service, no complaints at all. This isn’t a chain restaurant and it shows in the quality.
Classic old spot
Lots of UVA athletic memorabilia
Roast beef our favorite
I have dined at Aberdeen barn before in Williamsburg and was looking forward to dining in Charlottesville however after going there I wan not pleased with the service nor the quality of the food. The steak was just OK less than I have had at the Williamsburg location. My wife's broccoli was cold when it should have been warm. The waiter was too occupied working at the bar to be very attentive to our table. I would not suggest this location to anyone. I am very sorry to say.
Excellent food an great service.
This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. Sometimes we drive the three hours just for dinner. It’s that good and consistent. The prime rib is the best.
Always consistent. Prime rib is not available most places, so you should order that. A little more seasoning and a more generous portion of horseradish would elevate the prime rib, as it was a little flat this past visit. Always nice servers.
Excellent atmosphere, amazing food. We were visiting Charlottesville from DC and The Barn has a classic steakhouse look and feel.
All the steak/prime rib dishes were perfect but I was told by one of our party that the salmon was very dry
We were quite disappointed with the quality of the food. Expected much better for the price that we paid for the meal.
What a classic steakhouse. My husband and I enjoyed the dining experience. Staff and service were impeccable.
We are looking forward to our next visit!
Excellent food, service.
When I lived near Charlottesville, this used to be a go-to for special occasions. It is still expensive, but the food is not as good as in the past. In fact, I had a much better filet at half the price at Outback a week earlier. However, dessert was very good. Even though we had a reservation, our table was in a high traffic area between the entrance and the bar. Disappointed.
Aberdeen Barn has been an old favorite for our family for celebrations, especially birthdays. Thank you.
Great Prime Rib, Caesar Salad and Lobster Bisque.
As a long-time Charlottesville resident I knew about the Barn, but hadn’t been there in decades and it often flew under my radar. That changed with a terrific meal this weekend. Derrick provided excellent table and beverage service, the prime rib was delicious and the Barn potatoes outstanding! I guarantee I’ll be back very soon! Bravo!
Our experience at the Aberdeen Barn on Saturday was great. We had been there once before and wanted to return. Our waiter was excellent - as well as the other servers. The food was also excellent as well and we really enjoyed our dinner. We would highly recommend the Aberdeen Barn.
Love this place. And that it NEVER changes
Our first time in Charlottesville and we were recommended to try this place. Great experience. Food was delicious but not really the most bang for my buck. However, the service and ambience made up for it. Overall, my party enjoyed our visit here.
We had a great experience but will mention a few things...
I love ambience but it was a little too dark with just one tiny lamp..was hard to read the menu.
Food was really good but the coffee was old. Had been sitting in the pot a long time. I didn't complain .
Didn't want to cause a stir.
Our waiter was very professional and experienced but got very busy with other tables and left us waiting quite a while without coming back to check if we wanted coffee or dessert.
We've been coming here since it was the Angus Barn in the 60's and it's a favorite.
My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 2 year anniversary. He had never been to Aberdeen Barn so we decided to go there. The food was amazing as always, and our server (I don’t remember his name unfortunately) we great. He came to check on us about every 5-10 minutes, re-filled our waters without us having to ask, helped my boyfriend with the menu and got our food out to us moderately quick. Overall great time, and my boyfriend loved it! We will be back again! Thanks so much for helping us have a great anniversary dinner!
It was really well
The Barn has the best prime rib anywhere. It’s always perfect!
Wonderful food. The service was outstanding, always welcomed with a smile!
Prime rib was incredible, as always. Shrimp cocktail was delicious but only 4 shrimp - would have liked to see 5-6 shrimp for the price. Server (short, red-haired lady) was friendly and helpful. Interior could use a renovation, but you go for the beef, which is killer!
We’ve been going to the “Barn” for 25 years. It’s the best
Best steak! Pricey but so worth it. Had an enjoyable time. I would have liked if they asked if we were finished with some of the appetizers or wanted a box for left overs rather than just taking them away. Overall, the experience was very pleasant.
The food is always good and good value. We were especially impressed with KATHLEEN, our server. She gave us exceptional service! We enjoyed the cocktails and the piano player. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The food and service was excellent. We will dine there again on our next trip to Charlottesville.
Excellent food, quiet, old-school steakhouse ambiance. Highly recommended.
Good classic steakhouse. Simple, quality ingredients always wins. If I am in area again, will definitely stop again.
Service was rushed. What we ordered was not delivered. Filet was ordered med rare and was cooked solid. Broccoli was very poor and delivered after plates cleared, bad. Scallops were over cooked
Always a favorite...EXCELLENT food and service!!!
Great service , food and ambiance.
The food and service- superb! The cocktails- terrific! The restaurant needs a “refresh” badly... seriously - badly. I enjoyed the experience, but it would be 5 stars with a major update. My 2 cents...
I grew up in Manhattan, NYC. That being said, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting, and frequenting some of the best steak houses on the planet earth. Since moving from the greatest city on the planet, I’ve migrated to Charlottesville, Va, and let me tell you friends, NYC, or the rest of this very beautiful planet we call home, has nothing on “ The Aberdeen Barn” PERFECTION
