This was my first time at Barnaby's and I will for sure be returning. We went for brunch and the food was incredible. The breakfast cups were so awesome and totally unique. My boyfriend got a shrimp and avocado toast special which he loved. The bottomless mimosas were tasty and well made. The outdoor seating was nice for a sunny day and the servers were all very kind. Can't wait to go back!

Drinks are good, service a little slow, food is good too just smaller portions than anticipated, all in all we would likely return.

First time there! Even though it’s an hour away, I’m always down to plan a trip here 😁😁 Bottomless mimosas were delicious and love that there were options.

P.S That Brunch Burger???! 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤

Super loud..even at brunch,, nothing in the place to absorb sound which bounces off tin(?) ceiling?
Nice menu..a little different than some.
Covid- staffmember had gator on instead of a mask.
By now, everyone should have seen the public health warnings that they don’t work to block the virus. Not cool.

First time customers and we’ll for sure be returning! We decided on an early Sunday brunch and was pleasantly surprised by the diverse menu and great drink options never mind the price. Loved everything about the place and can’t wait to return and try the mimosas I saw everyone getting!

This is a hidden little gem of a pub... small menu but food was excellent. The burger was perfectly cooked and quite a generous portion.

Food was tasty but the star of the show are the bottomless mimosas. We did the deluxe and got to try many flavors and they give the perfect amount of juice to champagne!

I will be back again for the Maple Chicken Sliders. I will be craving those savory sweet bites for a long time. My daughter had the Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast which she thoroughly enjoyed! We loved the ambiance of a public house-- a great mix of old and new. The service was fantastic especially the manager! We will definitely go back!

I've been to Barnaby's on 2 separate occasions, and both experiences were the same. I want to love this place, because the food was great, but the service was terrible. I made a reservation, and specifically requested a high top table away from the door (it's winter in NE right now and freezing). We waited for the hosts for a good 10 minutes before anyone came. Meanwhile a party that came after us waved to a waiter and got seated before us. Seemed like they were friends. When host/waiter finally came to us, we told them we had a reservation, and they didn't even check. I told them we wanted a high top away from the door, however his response was "well there ain't one". ok? so we had to sit right by the door (only table available). What was the point in making a reservation? Anyways, a waitress comes, and gives us our menus and told us about the bottomless mimosas, never took any orders from us, and then left. Another waiter came 20 minutes later. After that we placed our food/drink orders, and food came. It was fine until we wanted water, or refills and we had to wait again. Everyone there seemed like friends which is great, but we weren't included. We were constantly being forgotten from the very beginning.

Place came highly recommended by a coworker who also happens to be a member of the kitchen staff, so I made the treck 45 minutes out with my wife for V-Day and was not disappointed! Waitress was friendly and responsive, food was absolutely delicious, bottomless mimosas are a must, and the environment was a bonus. We've already recommended it to our friends and family for when they make day plans in Providence, and we will most definitely be back as well!!

Even in these times a level of service should be met when there are only 4 tables being served. The waitress was distant and didn’t get our order correct. This is the easiest part of a servers job. I am compassionate to the service wait staff provide and that why I continue to show local support. But ensuring the patron is taken care of and the order is completely what we desired is bare minimum. I will not return so let for this fact. I gave a 15% tip and ate the food we were served. The food was good and overpriced but we knew that going in to the establishment. I wish them luck.

We ordered 2 appetizers one of which never came and the other came well after our burgers. We inquired several times as every table which had sat after us had food and finished and ours never came. We waited over an hour and finally our burgers came and then a few minutes later one of our appetizers arrived. Our waiter never checked on us, we had to waive him down and ask if he could check on our appetizers. The food was mediocre and the drinks were weak. Complete disappointment. They removed the one appetizer that did eventually arrive and two drinks from bill. But I would not recommend this place.

Ive been a fan of Barnaby's since it opened but when my boyfriend and I went last weekend I was sorely disappointed with the drink menu. The selections were very blah and when I ordered a Sazerac, I was surprised to see that it came on the rocks. Needless to say, that drink has always arrived straight up. I didn't send it back figuring that the bartender didn't know any differently, but that together with the disheartening nature of the menu left a bad taste in my mouth. Sadly, I won't be returning any time soon.

I gathered friends to eat lunch. We were disappointed that brunch was the only option and the online menu wasn't actually available until after 4pm. We searched for better variety.
