Our waiter, Eric was on the ball. We were never in need of anything right down to the catsup for the steak fries. Kept our drinks coming. Tipped him well for his efforts.
Prime rib was out of this world.
Our waiter was good as always as was the food.
Always the best service and food! Been going here for years.
Prime rib was some of the best I have had. Cream spinach was tight and almost dry and I really enjoyed that consistency and the flavor was great. Thousand island dressing was peppery and one of the better versions I have had. Everything else including the oyster Rockefeller and barn potatoes were just ok. Crème brule was not good.
Food was perfectly cooked, served in a timely and courteous manner.
Excellent dinner on all counts. Perfect steaks and prime rib. James was our server, and was always checking on us.
Always great food and service. Crowded last night with a pregame crowd. Eating there again on Saturday night.
Aberdeen Barn has some of the best Prime Rib I have ever had and I have HAD A LOT! Prices in my opinion are a little exorbitant especially since you have to pay extra for a salad which I believe used to be included. If price isn't a concern I highly recommend it!
From the moment myself and family walked through the door the great experience started. From the greeter to the server everything was outstanding! Our food was great, everything cooked as ordered.
We had a great experience celebrating my 25 yr old daughters birthday!!
Awesome as always in every aspect of dining. We always go here just for fun or special occasions. I always get the prime rib and it never disappoints! The staff is the best and do an outstanding job!
Food was outstanding. Steak was tender and very flavorful. We went there for our anniversary and the staff made it very special
Even with Covid issues that affected the menu, it was perfect as always! We appreciate your efforts to maintain such a wonderful dining experience! Best to all!
Food was excellent. Had lamb chops & filet mignon. Escargot was very good as well. Service was timely and just the right amount of attention paid to us!
Disappointed this visit. Onion soup was very salty. Prime rib although prepared perfectly had little flavor. Needed some seasoning.
Good was mediocre at best. Steak wasn’t cooked correctly crab cakes were cold breadsticks could break a tooth. Friendly staff though.
Dated. Many better places to eat in Charlottesville. Fish was unedible.
Service was good. My lamb good. My husband's steak was a disappointment and barn fries dry. Salad and dessert
Visited my daughter over the wkd and took my her and her friends, all are attending UVA, out for a nice steak dinner. While the service was great, we all had the worse stomaches afterwards. I will never return sadly.
The dinner is always the best steak dinner to be had. Great staff who were checking on us constantly, making sure we had everything we needed.
Maybe because it had been a while since we had visited, but it was even better than expected. The filet mignon was the best I've ever had,
We had a party of five for my son's birthday. I would recommend this place for special events like this. The staff was attentive and the food was very good. Wedge salad was particularly good and the prime rib was not the best I have had, but was very good. Tax and tip take the bill to about $80PP, so not an everyday choice.
Awful service from teenagers who don’t know what they’re doing. The escargots were dry and virtually impossible to remove from their shells and the steak had very little flavor.
Fairly disappointed for a once great restaurant.
The food and service at Aberdeen Barn NEVER disappoints. Everything on their menu is delicious, but the prime ribs is the absolute best. The friendliness and efficiency of the staff tops it off.
My wife and I visit several times per year, we live 1 1/2 hours away and it is always great food and the lady that waited on us was great. The food is some of the best that we have ever had and i would recommend it to anyone. Keep up the good work and happy holidays.
Excellent all around food service and ambiance
Birthday dinner for me and my wife. Prime rib is awesome
The place is legendary!
Out server, James, was terriffic. He made us feel very comfortable.
A favorite when visiting Charlottesville. Hope the piano bar returns!
Food and Service were wonderful. That says it all.
Good food, was a bit noisy. Service was good and definitely we weren't rushed to leave.
It was a wonderful experience as usual. Loved that they were respecting Covid protocols yet delivering an incredible customer experience.
Great food good service pricy but worth it we love this place one of if not the best restaurants in Charlottesville.
Excellent food - we devoured our steaks. Wonderful service.
Great as always! The food and service are always exemplary!
Many key items on the menu are gone due to Covid. Portions seem smaller on the steaks. Same prices. Great service
Food and service was fabulous as always!
The steak was good but dessert and sides were not up to par. A little expensive for its value. But nice atmosphere :)
There is a difference between old school and just plain old. The prime rib was fine cooked to temp and not overly fatty but that is about all I can say that was good. The creamed spinach was disgusting it had a gun like consistency and was flavored poorly. Building was old and poorly kept felt dusty and musty. For the prices they charge you would think it would have been a much better experience but sadly very average at best.
