My favorite place in Houston! Grass fed meats! – Barnaby's is just plain awesome. I eat here probably 2 to 3 times per month, either with my g/f or by myself at the bar. The food is so good - especially for the value - no more expensive than Chili's or whatever. Menu items are unique. They have my favorite burger in all of Houston - even though it's more gourmet-style than burger joint style. Try the Lebanese Chicken Fattoush (it's a salad).
Waiters: super friendly and attentive every time. Make me feel at home. Atmosphere is fun and artsy.
Everything here is natural and healthy. The serve grass fed, respectfully raised meats, which is so hard to find - and it's not any more expensive than the crap meats you get everywhere else.
The also have the best damn choc chip cookies.
Oh, and for whatever it's worth to you, gay pride stuff is part of Barnaby's atmosphere.
The other locations are all good to, by West Gray is my regular.
Delish! – It might not be my favorite Barnabys location but I must say, they never fail to give me the best burgers! Love it, it's healthy and delicious!
Overrated – Food is extremely mediorcre. Staff needs training in customer service. Most over-rated restaurant in the city.
i love it here!! – I absolutely LOVEEE barnaby's!! I've tried a lot of the menu, and have yet to eat anything that I was unhappy with. The meatloaf is fantastic, so good that when I order antyhing else there I normally ask for the meatloaf sauce on the side. It's great and will be returning shortly.
Don't go – Poor service; mediocre food. Pretentious clientele; full of yuppie wannabe's. We were sitting outside when it started to rain and the waiter could not figure out what to do even though there was an unused umbrella at the table next door.
Great Food, Great Place, and......... – First of all,the waiter failed to greet us,or introuduce himself, in any fashion and sneered, when he curtly asked "what can I get you drink". I tried to over look that. I have ordered the samething from the breakfast menu that I always do since going to Barnaby's. He tried steering me to another item that was more expensive.I know I should not be judgemental. Barnaby's is a very good restaurant, with great staff. What happened today was not the norm. I hope this waiter will get the training he needs, so that he can catch up to his more pleasant and customer service oriented co-workers.
Good place to break up – The noise is so loud, you can't have a decent conversation. It's extremely crowded at lunch time, so arrive early or expect a long wait. Tables are quite close together, so expect a cozy experience. The hostess desk was multi-tasking seating people, taking phone orders, etc., so there was a long wait to even pay the bill. All in all, I'd say way over-rated. The menu had nothing that jumped out and said, "Try me. This looks interesting."
One big yawn.
WOW!!! – Great food, great service, great price. This place is has instantly become one of my favorite joints in one of my favorite parts of town. A must go!!!! I recommend the waffle fries with blue cheese fondo!!!
Great food and customer service! – I love this place! They have the best salad (get the Chicken Fatoush). The services is excellent, prices are reasonable and quality of food is great. Ask for Jay - He took great care of us. He was a great waiter - he was attentive, fast, fun and professional.
Come hungry, leave full – We frequented Barnaby's quite a bit when we lived in the Montrose area. The have good sized portions (the salads are HUGE) and a lemonade to die for. The service was always prompt and we really loved the quality of the food. I personally loved the egg salad sandwiches. There are a few more locations around town, so try them out and see if you like them. We know we did!
