This is one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at in the area. First class menu and overall experience.
Always great, staff and food are excellent, and the owners are fabulous.
Overall, Barnwood was excellent. Service was on point. Food came out quickly and everything was delicious. Love the ambience…rustic and classy with a sliver of casual. Our first time and we will be back. Something on the menu for everyone!
Good Food nice ambience so if you don’t mind the wait staff not wearing masks definitely try this place out
Everything was fantastic. Yevgeny was a great server - whole team seemed to come to our table during the night! Owners moved us to the quietest and roomiest area / table. New Year’s Eve decorations were awesome. Food, as always, was out of this world. Always happy at Barnwood Grill!

Always an amazing dining experience! From the service, to the fantastic food. My favorite restaurant hands down, and it never disappoints!
Barnwoods is a fabulous restaurant with every detail well thought!
We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at Barnwood. The decorations were beautiful and we loved the wait staff in their festive holiday attire. We always count on a delicious meal and it really put us in the holiday spirit. ❤️💚
Wonderful food..excellent service..can’t wait to go back..
Was so good to return and see the restaurant doing business . From drinks to dinner it was all delicious.
Sorry to say. overpriced for what I ordered. Butternut quash was bland. Just not impressed
We had a very relaxing meal and our waiter wAs fabulous!
It was crowded and I did not prefer the buffet style service.
We were at Barnwood grill for Thanksgiving Dinner buffet. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. The best part was, that in addition to the traditional turkey, they also served prime rib, lamb and salmon. Something for everyone. Noise level was higher than usual, but to be expected on a holiday. Hope they do it again next year.
Nice vibe, friendly service, drinks were spot on and food was tasty!
Barnwood is my favorite restaurant in Newtown. It has the overall best mix of great food, great waitstaff and ambience. So cozy and warm there!
Barnwood Grill in Newtown is one of our favorite restaurants. The Ahi Tuna last night was outstanding. I always start with a shrimp cocktail and it was as good as always. The owner always greets us on our way in and the servers are always friendly and helpful. Again, another wonderful experience.
Delicious food and excellent staff that have great attention to service I have dined there many times and have always enjoyed the experience
We usually love the food but this time food was cold and just not as good. I feel it is over priced
Food and service amazing as always!
Made a reservation on open table and arrived on time. Waited for about half an hour in an excruciatingly crowded line and still had one party ahead of us to get a table. We bailed and went somewhere else. Noise level was out of control loud. I’m happy that this restaurant is doing well post pandemic but if they give you a reservation they should at least honor it within 10 or 15 minutes. The lady kept coming to us and telling us that a party was getting up and paying their check and about to leave but it never seemed to happen.
Went for my wife’s birthday. The Kobe beef burger and risotto ride balls were amazing. We were a bit let down by the ribeye steak though. I think it was more to do with the quality of the meat rather than the seasoning. The crème brûlée was excellent.
Kristy our server was excellent, Ben made us some delicious cocktails, the whole staff was pleasant and professional.
The host was phenomenal and made sure everything for us was perfect. The food and service is always great. Excellent place to go for any occasion.
I have celiac and they have a lot of things labeled gluten free when they were not at all.
The menu label GF means nothing however thanks to the waiter talking to the chef they kept my meal gluten free. Exceptionally bland but gluten free.
Was crowded but we were able to get to our table right when we walked in for our reservation. We wanted to eat at the bar. Bartender was very nice and offered great service! Enjoyed the special pumpkin martini! Food was delicious!
Great service on top of excellent food. The seafood gnocchi was terrific. The hangar steak - cooked perfectly. We will be back!!
Great service, great food.
Always fantastic service and food/drinks at Barnwood!
I’ve been there a couple of times now and unfortunately this time I was disappointed. Had the shrimp and grits and it was inedible. They used a Thai Chili sauce that tasted like it came straight out of a bottle. Not sure what this was but it was nothing even close to authentic shrimp and grits. My son had a pasta and short rib dish and the short ribs were dry. Not sure how you dry out short ribs (actually I know you have to reheat them instead of serving it fresh) while the pasta was delicious the dish as a whole missed.
Otherwise restaurant and service were good. Wish the food delivered.
Wonderful to eat outside with heaters.
The Barnwood has nice decor. The food is OK but a little pricey. The service was excellent! The noise level was unbearable. You could not have a conversation as it was TOO loud. While I totally understand that restaurants have been negatively affected by Covid they really need to do something about the acoustics in the dining area. I am sorry to say I would not go back.
Very good food, nice beer selection & great dessert! Only draw back is the price. 2 apps, 3 entrees, 6 drinks, 2 desserts for 3 people ended up being $250 after tip. A little steep.
Overall it was a very nice experience.
Our waiter was terrific and the décor very pretty.
I started with the Tuna Tartare and it was fantastic followed by very delish clams with tomato, hot pepper and chorizo.
Husband had baby back ribs and although they were tasty they did not fall off the bone...needed more slow roasting
we will return for another meal.
give it a try.
Great meal as always!!
