Extremely busy for covid times yes that have barriers up but EVERY table was full....so if you’re looking for something on the quieter side maybe somewhere else
Food was good, I had the tuna asked for
Pink inside ....it was cooked all the way through not worth complaining about, didn’t want to make the person I’m with uncomfortable by having her wait etc while they remade my mine
Stopped in for a few appetizers- Lobster nachos were amazing!
I got the fettuccine dish and it was cold - not a lot of flavor. The calamari was not cooked and the portion was small.
We love Barnwood Grill. The food is always excellent and the owners/staff always make us feel welcome, and that truly care we are there.
Barnwood Grill has become one of our favorite restaurants to go to. We know that the service and food will be top notch.
Always A good time at the bar for dinner.
Great night out.with great food. Just really loud!
Food selection and quality were outstanding. We particularly liked the tuna selections and desserts. Service was a bit slow.
Despite having made a reservation in advance, the only table available when we arrived was a high top in the bar area. Once seated, we were immediately asked what we wanted to drink before we even had our coats off, and then asked 4 more times in the next 5 minutes. It was uncomfortable and left us feeling rushed before we had even settled in. After all that, we were served the wrong drink. Service was better towards the end of the meal, and our food was very good.
Everything is amazing, always referring people to check it out.
Some dishes were tasty, others were not. Uneven quality. The chef needs to up his/her game.
It was the most amazing brunch. Beautiful restaurant with unbelievable service!!
Terrible experience. Had a reservation. Waited almost 45 minutes. Still not seated No social distancing. Tables etc. not cleaned well. Very crowded and noisy. People standing close together waiting for tables. Not a good experience. We ended up leaving.
Our waiter was very nice.
Really great experience for our return to indoor dining and will go back soon
What a great find! I wasn’t expecting it to be so great being in a shopping plaza. Amazing food, wonderful atmosphere and great service. Can’t wait to go back again.
We enjoy Barnwood! The food is delicious and the waitstaff is very friendly and professional.
Lobster nachos fantastic! Great menu, service and ambience. I always come back!
Great place, really enjoyed my Lobster Ravioli! And our waiter was terrific!
The service was incredible!! The food was outstanding. My steak was cooked to perfection.
Recommend highly. The food is exceptional. I finished my entire meal and had dessert of creme brûlée too. I rarely have ever finished my entree in fact always leave half uneaten just because I have a small appetite. I ordered scallops with an medley of asparagus, mushrooms, etc in a light sauce. So delicious...
Wish they would serve a hard seltzer as that is my go to. I had a malbec instead. I will be back. This is a new favorite for me. I didn’t have one before! One con: it’s covid and when we walked in there was a group of 5 or so sitting at the bar - no food and not all had drinks. There were no barriers separating them from each other or us. They were all known to each other and they were loud. I didn’t think you could sit at the bar that way. We gave them alot of looks and after 10 minutes they went inside the dining room and were nice enough to apologize to us for being loud. No issues. But i was surprised that the management thought this was okay to seat us so close to the group.
Food and service was wonderful. It was a busy Saturday night so the place was fairly loud but nothing extreme.
Amazing food! Great service! It was my first time there for dinner. Felt very safe and well taken care of.
Really great covid safety measures - the food was delish - and the prices were reasonable for the quality and amount of food! :)
Food was very good. Quite a few choices for specials. Social distance and table spacing was perfect.
The fixed menu for valentines was a great variety (except vegitarian) which was fine. the fried calamari and oysters rockerfeller were not good. But the salads and entrees were delicious and my rare steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly which never happens so kudos to the grill chef. I like the partitions for Covid but even when its over they should leave those up for the privacy- so nice especially for closely spaced two tops. It was completely packed but quiet. The food wasnt rushed and drinks kept coming. I worked in fine dining for years so never like to do valentines on Valentines but even with limited menu the entrees were definitely freshly fired which I appreciated. Desserts were yummy! We will be back
I loved their food and the place was amazing definitely going back.
Yum - delicious
It was our first time visiting Barnwood and we were so happy. Our waiter was incredibly attentive considering it was extremely busy. It was a bit loud but not to the point you couldn't hear your company. The best part was the food. I recommend everything we had, stuffed oysters, pork belly, chicken milanese, pasta with short ribs, salmon and beet salad. All fantastic. Dessert, salted caramel cheese cake is the way to go. Their bourbon menu is extensive if you like it, and have any other wine or drink you would want. The only negative was the partitions in between the tables were tight. Needed more room, especially for a group of 4.
Our waiter was very attentive and accommodating. The atmosphere was cozy and warm
Great food and excellent service!
Always a great experience and amazing food!
We arrived after a hike so were cold and hungry. Service was great, very attentive. We had 4 adults and 2 kids (and a reservation) and we all left happy. The food was fresh, the drinks were great and even my picky kids ate! The place seemed busy but they certainly followed protocols and nobody sat near us. Definitely will return!
Hasn’t been in 3-4 years. Very impressed by current setup, food and service. All very good and covid precautions are done very well. Only odd thing is that initial beer mug had a slightly soapy funk to it but - hey, I know it was clean!
Nice stylish ambiance. Great location to then go to nearby shopping. Professional and friendly service.
This place is hands down our favorite in the area! The menu has a great range and we’ve yet to have anything, cocktails included, that disappoints. We’re always greeted like welcome old friends, even from our first visit. Barnwood is our go to place when we want to eat out.
They have done an amazing job with keeping tables very private. It was fabulous.
Wonderful Restaurant, the service was great, very attentive, the food was so good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to a friend.
We enjoyed our lunch very much! From the ambiance to the service and delicious food, we will definitely be back. The owner was also attentive and friendly. We are looking forward to returning!
The Barnwood Grill has been especially good lately. The service is outstanding – quick yet unobtrusive – and the food selection & quality has never been better. Whatever you're doing, keep it up!
