The restaurant looks very nice since they redecorated. The waitstaff was wonderful and the food was delicious. My husband had Barnwood chicken and I had a burger. Both of us enjoyed our meals very much. I am looking forward to going back !

Very disappointed, heard so much about this place and was expecting much more! Very noisy atmosphere came out with a headache The tables are way too small, the service is rushed and portions are small. Don’t know what all the hype was about, definitely not a place to go to relax and enjoy. They also need to put up curtains to absorb the loud noise and get rid of the rug!

food wasnt that good my dinner companion had send back the pork porterhouse it was overcooked and inedible I had the swordfish which was overcooked but edible. there were several tables with young children that were noisy and in 1 case not well controlled, we may as well have gone to Mc Donalds.

Sorry about this but your restaurant was so noisy that we would never come back. I ordered halibut, which was delicious but it was clear that the veggies and sauce were laying around awaiting the fish and they were cold. We had asked the waiter for some bread and we were told it was almost ready. After about 15 minutes, bread was brought out to the table next to us, which was just seated. Salad was very good.

Maybe we would have a better experience when you are less crowded.

It was my mother in-law’s birthday. The lightning was a little dark and was difficult to have conversation due to the volume. The appetizers and main course were delicious. The flan was just ok but my daughter enjoyed her creme brulee and my mother said the custard with chocolate mousse with berries was delicious.

Would definitely return.

Seated quickly and given a choice of tables. We actually sat in the bar area which was very comfortable. Server was friendly and attentive. We went with her recommendations we had the brussel sprouts and calamari to start both were excellent. For main course we had the Dory special and shrimp and grits. we loved everything.

It's great to have a place in Yorktown that has good food that isn't fried! The menu is really broad so there is a ton to choose from, including good fish and side options. The vegetables were at best "meh" and could have been way more interesting . . . but you can't have everything.

Place is great and service was very good, however, the noise level on a Saturday night in the main dining room was just too loud. I'm all about ambiance and lighting, etc, however, it was so loud you had to shout to the person next to you. It's the room, they need some acoustic tile work in there. It's always been like that. By the way, the bar is awesome and less noisy. Go midweek for appetizers or dinner at the bar. You won't be disappointed!

Went with a friend for dinner and sat in bar area, very nice atmosphere! Loved the decor and the “woody” smell. The food was very good, the best filet mignon I’ve had in a long time. Noticed they have happy hour and live music on sundays, can’t wait to go back and try some other things!

Absolutely horrible. It had Incredibly loud and obnoxious noise throughout making it an unbearable dining experience. They lacked overall knowledge of how to satisfy their customers. Had to wait an incredible 15 minutes before someone ever greeted us, totally unacceptable. Obviously I would not recommend.

Food was delicious! We ordered the strip steak and Shrimp and grits. Burrata tower was disappointing, very small and not attractive. We had the chocolate chip cookie lava cake for dessert which was very different and delicious! We will be back but not on a busy Saturday night.

Very nice to have a restaurant like this local for the area. Everything we had was good. Despite the limited wine selections we were pleasantly surprised. The decor is simple but nothing to absorb noise. The only thing to complain about was the noise level. We were in a side room and things were fine until a table of 8 was seated. It was like they were yelling! We could no longer hear ourselves at our own table. Please do something to help the acoustics so we can make you a favorite

Great food and service right in our backyard! Rice Balls appetizer were fantastic as was the Organic Chicken main entree although the restaurant has changed hands a few times in the past 3 years hopefully this time it will stay. Moderately priced.

We had a wonderful meal at the Barnwood Grill. The waitress was very attentive and everything was delicious. I had the most delicious dessert - vanilla pudding with chocolate mousse and a berry. I can't wait to order it again. We've been looking for a neighborhood place to go to and this might be it. My husband told me his filet was the best cooked he'd ever had. I had fish which was delicious but I wished they had it with mashed not roasted potatoes. A few less expensive sandwich options would have made the place perfect.

Sat in the bar area at a high top table. Service was good. It got a little loud as the night went on. Could have used more food than what was on the plate for the price. Drinks were weak.

Ordered the Butternut Squash Ravioli. Sauce was not to my taste so I took the BSR off the plate it was served to me on, to gave as little sauce as possible. Even with that, the item was not to my taste. I ate 2 pieces.

Was disappointing that the server did not notice and did not ask me anything about what I had done. When we decided not to get dessert, I shared my opinion.

When the bill arrived, I was surprised to see the BSR charge still there, as other times this happened at other restaurants, the charge was removed. Paid the $17.

This palce has been under many differnt names and owners over the last few years. I really hope this time it works out.

I like the renovations and the place was hopping.

The food was very good but not cheap.

The service was excellent.

Good bar scene for people in their 30's to their 50's.

I would definitely return.

Food was delicious - wings & scallop apps cooked perfectly & flavorful. Perfect amount of sauce & seasoning. Burnt ends grilled cheese was fantastic. Other members of groups also raved about their dishes - brussel sprout app, tuna tacos & brisket. Martini's were great. Only negatives - (1) noise level was very high - not only from diners (tolerable), but also from speaker above our head and (2) high-top tables by bar (uncomfortable after a long period of time). Will definitely be going back to try several items. Great addition to the area, hope they continue to do well!!

Not very impressive. Made a reservation and got stuck sitting at a high table top in the bar section. Very loud, lousy service, uninspired looking plates. Grilled Salmon was a slab of salmon on a plate with 2 broccoli stems... not very appealing.
