    First time at Barristers, they were extremely on top of my food allergy, which is rare but fantastic!! Everyone with me loved the food, we loved the service, but for me, I was pretty limited due to my allergy. Not their fault, just how it is, but a bit salty. Definitely would recommend for most everyone!! Very good for most everyone!!!!!! Give it a try!!

    We were really hoping to like it. Service was great, atmosphere was nice. It is a great old building with a really tall ceiling. The food just didn't cut it. The brie was OK, the mahi was too salty and otherwise tasteless. A big pile of squash and sweet potatoes oddly with bacon but not much else. The brussel sprouts were very good, the best part of the meal. The recommended dessert, which the server suggested was fantastic, was a rock hard crust of chocolate tort with no sauce or ice cream. Fantastic is not a word I would use for that. Perhaps they make some good dishes, don't get the mahi.

    Awesome spot! Really cool history behind the building as well. The food was bussin. Best collard greens I've ever had hands down. Will definitely be back! And the fried chicken sandwich was fried to crispy, crunchy perfection. I suck with names, but the staff was awesome too!

    The staff members were terrific and you felt at home. Nice menu selection. I really like the fact you could order a half salad as a choice. The meals were exceptional with well balanced tastes. I felt it was a great value for the experience. My wife will return again. We all ready have our next entrees chosen.

    This is a unique place to eat that seems to get overlooked. The quality of food and taste is comparable to other more well known expensive restaurants and the older building is really cool to experience. Drinks are great too!

    A disappointing experience. We were seated promptly and given menus but no one came back to greet us or take our order. Restaurant was not busy. We waited around 10 minutes then decided to go to another restaurant. No one even acknowledged us as we were leaving. We do not plan on returning. Poor customer service.
