Crowded. Noisy. Slow service. Great food.
Fun place. We’ll return, which is our acid test.
“Donuts” were good. Brisket, beans, Brussels sprouts, pulled chicken all exceeded expectations. Beef ribs and baby back ribs disappointed. We were too full to try the great looking dessert menu.
Good bbq spot, great cocktails. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is delicious. Busy for weekend dinner so make reservations.
We've been here several times, each time the service, food and overall appearance doesn't disappoint...a very enjoyable experience.
This is our favorite BBQ place. My favorite beef ribs ever. Always good food and service.
Overall, Boneyard was a great meal. the baby back pork ribs were a bit overcooked, but good, the cornbread mini muffins were a bit dry, and the collard greens were perfect.
A bit noisy on Mothers day, but it calmed down after 8pm.. I liked the food overall, and flavors, the service was good.
I would go back again.
The waiter was very friendly and attentive and the food was very good. we celebrated
Mothers Day and it was not too noisy.
Mother’s Day. The specials for the night were the staff’s mom’s favorite meals. Too cute! And good! It’s just a cool place with great food.
There are not enough adjectives to describe how much my husband and I love this place. It’s our “go to” for when we want to go out and not think about where to go. The staff is THE BEST. The food is fantastic. It’s the only place outside of my Dad’s house that I’ll eat beef ribs. Love love love this place!!
Cool place and menu options. However, not great bbq. We had baby back ribs and they came out cold and it was not fall-off the bone as your would want for your ribs. We noticed everyone else’s food looked cold too.
I would come back to try their small plates since those looked really good. Wouldn’t come back for bbq. You have much better options elsewhere. Service was also good.
Waitress was outstanding (Alice? Alicia?...) Awesome.
Great ambiance, food selections even for this vegetarian. Husband says the beef brisket is the best he has ever had. Nice neighborhood hangout feeling, but we drive nearly 20 miles to go there.
Excellent food and service.
Food was pretty good but service seemed lacking. Felt like server was just going through the motions. Hope next time is better.
Dependably good service, food and most times, we've gotten a table without a reservation.
Excellent meats at a great value. Very friendly and accommodating staff. There are platters that make this an excellent choice for larger parties. The downside is the noise level in the dining room....but it also makes for a very lively, entertaining evening.
Table ready on time
Service friendly and prompt
Can’t wait to return
Family get together
This place should be a staple on everyone's restaurant lists. Always consistent, amazing drinks food and friendly staff.
Brisket and chicken my faves - beans and coleslaw exceptional!
Good BBQ and comfortable food in a trendy space. Friendly vibe, great service.
Great food! Good cocktails
Good was good, not great. Very noisy!!!
The owner’s wife was lovely and offered us another table outside.
We declined it because the noise from the street was less preferable than the inside noise.
Busy, good vibe, laid-back and professional at the same time, delicious food and extensive menu.
Good BBQ at a local restaurant. Easy and casual.
Good food and good service.
Barbecue items are beyond yummy! The Brussels sprouts appetizer is great, and so are the deviled eggs, but be careful. The eggs are spicy! Overall, the food is delicious, the ambiance is fun, and the service is friendly. This was my third time here and I've never been disappointed.
Great Service, Great food.
Great Birthday Singing!
Having been a customer of the Boneyard for many years I was disappointed in my meal. Both the ribs and chicken were dry in a way that their sauce could not remedy. I go for the food. If they continue their slide they are going to loose me as a patron.
Awesome, food is amazing! Unbelievable onion rings, too
Very good food and drinks. We loved the crunch salad and you MUST get their brussel sprouts with burrata!
Okay, this is the best BBQ I have had since leaving Texas.
The Brisket and Beef Ribs are *^&%**(%$#@$ good!
Always love it here!! In every way.
We were a party of 4 with a reservation. We were seated quickly at a roomy table near the front window. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We had a wide variety of foods all were very well prepared. The ribs and brisket were very good although the brisket was a bit dry possibly because I had ordered the lean version rather than the fattier cut. The meats were fairly smoky in flavor as would be expected. There is an extensive menu and many wine and beer options. My only negative comment would be the noise level. It was difficult to have a conversation. All in all a pleasant dining experience.
Dinner with family. Son in for a visit and was leaving the next day!
I like Friday lunch at Boneyard. It's the type of restaurant that I'd go to when I worked in advertising on Fridays when I didn't want or need to go back to the office, and now that I don't work on Fridays, it's a great place to hang out at the bar for a couple of hours with good beer and wildly inventive food. It doesn't hurt that I'm friends with the staff, but there's no reason you can't get to know the staff yourself.
This restaurant is across the street from the playhouse we were going to later. We decided to have dinner there and cross the street to go to the play. The tri-tip and beef ribs were exceptional. The baked beans were flavorful and with pieces of tri-tip. I had the empanadas. They were flaky and had tender beef. Our waiter was friendly and chatty. We plan on returning.
Great tri-tip and chili. Noise level is so high that it is very difficult to talk.
The noise level was over the top. It was impossible to have any type of conversation,
and after YELLING to one another for 15 minutes, we gave up. We ate as quickly as we
could. It was also quite warm inside the restaurant, and we couldn't get out of there
quickly enough. Not an enjoyable meal at all.
Barnyard Bistro has a great energy, great liquor options, great beer options, awesome food. Terrific bbq on Ventura Blvd.
