    Just a lovely place with very good food. Prices range and some can be too pricey, but you can find something for $20-$25. Very good bar and wine selection. Excellent service too.

    Our first dining experience @ Barringer’s did not disappoint & it will not be our last visit! Everything was incredible, from the drinks & varied menu to the food & service…I am sorry it’s over! We started with the seafood plate which was phenomenal & I highly recommend! We shared a lovely salad, & for entrees, I ordered the beef carpaccio w/truffle fries & hubby had the fried chicken. The truffle fries alone are worth a stop here & the fried chicken is the best & most unique we’ve ever had! We can’t wait to bring all our friends here!!! run to this place…don’t walk!

    My 2 girlfriends and I came here because I had eaten here a few years ago and it was memorable. It did not disappoint this time either! We loved the classy atmosphere, yet people were dresses however they felt comfortable. (We wore denim and blouses, but there were several people in hoodies and baseball caps). The server was very attentive and charming, and the food was fantastic. We ordered steak, salmon, and beef stroganoff and everyone was delighted with their food. Highly recommend Barringer's.

    Food was delicious, but portions are way too large. We saw so much food being wasted as people couldn’t finish their orders. Great Moscow mules. Really enjoyed it. We’ll definitely be back again.

    Early dinner on Wednesday just before atart of busy spring season. Excellent petite filet but slightly over cooked to request. Fried chicken with roasted veggies upgrade was well worth the $4. The chicken was unbelievably moist and tender. Will definitely return and highly recommend. I do hope they bring in a window washer though.

    Overall, our group had a good time. We sat in the dining room. Only complaint about the ambiance is that the room was very hot so it got a bit uncomfortable. The food in general was very rich. Would go back and sit at the bar or outside.

    For the last 9 years we considered Barringers one of the top 3 restaurants in Door Co. Perhaps this weeks visit was just an off night but our steaks ordered medium rare came one medium, the other rare. The basket of bread while good was cold as were the broiled tomatoes on the side. Caesars salad and asparagus were very good. Only three tables were occupied early in the evening so the kitchen wasn't rushed. For the price and reputation, we expected more and were disappointed.

    This weekend my husband and I were celebrating our 44th anniversary in Door County and chose Barringer’s for dinner on our last night. We rarely order steak but after reading so many stellar reviews, we both did. Our favorite cuts are ribeye (me) and filet for my love. Both were cooked to a perfect medium rare. We each ordered crispy baked potatoes - his was loaded. I could not stop moaning during each luscious bite of my ribeye! It was the best steak I have had since September 2013! I remember because I’ve compared every one since! On that occasion, we were celebrating my birthday at Keefer’s in Chicago’s River North area and were sad when they closed the next year. My husband enjoyed his filet as well, but I didn’t detect any moaning. We shared a bottle of Cakebread Cabernet, which has been one of our favorite reds since our first trip to Napa in the ‘80s. I had read the staff profiles and had a little chat with Grant, after reading he was from Chicago. Turns out we were born in the same hospital, although my entry into this world came many decades before. We will definitely return on our next visit. ♥️

    Our meal was truly delicious! We loved the shrimp cocktail and oysters, the chopped salad was so fresh and delightful. I had the hake special, and it was exquisite! We took home the key lime coconut dome and ate it for breakfast the next day, so beautiful and tasty. The atmosphere is relaxing with candlelight, service was friendly. We are big fans!
