Welcome to Barney's Beanery, the classic Route 66 roadhouse in West Hollywood. Open since 1920, Barney's Beanery has been a staple of LA nightlife for since LA had nightlife. In 2005, we opened our 3rd Street Promenade location and been serving our beachbound customers and Santa Monica regulars faithfully ever since. We serve our entire menu (breakfast, lunch and dinner) all day and night.

We are now back open for inside and outside dining. Specify if you prefer an inside or outside table and we will do our best to accommodate. We will try but we may not be able to accommodate specific seating area requests due to limited space and high demand. We ask that guests limit dining time to 90 minutes per LA County Health Department guidance.

75% of your party must have arrived by the reservation time to be seated. We list a limited number of reservations a day to save space for our walk-up clientele. Call us with questions at 310-656-5777. Thanks!!

This place really went down hill. Not sure if it’s due to COVID or what not. Food isn’t as good. Drinks really sucked. They got rid of their Cucumber Margarita, best drink they had. I was very disappointed.

To start with: “MIKE”- Our server-“extraordinaire” was beyond exceptional!!!
He gave Us great recommendations & beyond great service! I’d hire him for My extremely busy Family Practice office as a Front office Manager/Coordinator.
The food was spot on as were the drinks & he made it easy to order appetizers & drinks that were on the Happy Hour specials, saving Us some serious coin!
All in all We had a memorable experience & We’ll be BACK!
Thank You Mike & the Barney’s Crew!

i set a reservation for 8:30. we arrived at 8:15pm. when we got there a host greeeted us n found reservation and proceeded to seat us. the table he sat us at was a two top in a corner that we couldn’t get through. it was so tight n ridiculous that we couldn’t fit comfortably. there were plenty of empty tables and requested if we could sit somewhere else. he told me they were closing off the other tables and this is all they had. i said we were not comfortable there and that we could just wait for a table that wasn’t closed off to open up. he said no because they were about to close! it was 8:20pm!!! wtf?!! there was a table that just left n he said “i can ask if u can sit here if you want” at that point i was very irritated because this is the second time i had a bad experience at this exact location! i’m not sure if it’s a race thing i was treated so poorly but i WILL NEVER support this business and am so offended with such poor customer service. last time the host was on his phone for a long time before even acknowledging us then wouldn’t seat us cz they were full. there were 2 empty tables, there were 4 of us n said he only had a 2 top available. we put our name on list walked to restroom came back n the 4 top was taken by 1 person and the 2 top was seated. i asked him where was i on the list n he said my name wasn’t on there. i said i was just here 5/10 minutes ago n u took my name he said he didn’t remember me n now the wait was an hour!!! n he would text my phone when table was ready, i hv him my number just to see if he’d actually do his job, we went somewhere else n funny i NEVER got a text that the table was ready! what a joke! i am the nicest person i did nothing wrong but try n hv a nice meal at a place i loved but the burbank location! so not sure why 2 times i was treated so bad.

Came to watch the game and all of the screens turned off. The patio tables were too close to people passing by on 3rd street. Waiter did not offer water, and service was slow. We got carne asada fries and there were alright but nothing special. Would not come again.

Thank you for accommodating us even though we were 10 minutes late and turned one of the TVs to the packers game. Bloody Mary did not taste the best but all other food and beverages were good.

Always a fun place to go for any meal or to watch a football game!

Love all the varieties of chili and a special perk that chili comes with chips to dip!

Food was delicious. Outside seating area is very nice, but when we arrived we chose to sit inside due to a very loud street performer right outside the restaurant. But the inside is great! Only place I've seen old car seats used as bar stools! Would recommend taking the 10 Minuye walk from the pier to grab lunch.

We came here for a group reunion, when we got there the host had a terrible attitude, we got seated and everything was good only half of the group were there we got served some drinks everything was going smoothly. Once the entire group came in the service became bad. It took about 30-40 minutes to get our food after waiting for the waiter 20 minutes to get our orders in. The food was good and the drinks were ok. After we finished we all paid and left our tips (%15 tip) considering it wasn’t great service. We all leave the restaurant and the waiter comes outside and asks us to tip more. We would’ve tipped another $20 more but he started giving us attitude. He went back inside and started to talk about us with the other staff. Our special night was then completely ruined.

We booked through open table and confirmed when requested to the day before. When we arrived they claimed open table did not work and they did not have enough staff for our party of eight. The lady we did speak to was not helpful .

It was my 24th birthday. Everything was smooth sailing. The restaurant communicated with me effectively 2 days before the event and even recommended I rent out the top floor if 25 or more guests were expected to show up for free! Around 40-50 people showed up. It was a success. I recommend this place for any occasion. Try their wings and sweet potato fries. They're to die for!
