Best Steak On The East Coast – Incredible Resturant in NW Raleigh that's just celebrated its 50th anniversary! Known for its immense collection of wines and steaks, the Angus Barn has something for everyone! There's a giant stuffed shrimp pasta that's not to be missed! The caesar salads are as good as it gets! And be sure you save room for dessert! The atmosphere is a southern barn, certainly large enough to hold 1,000 people. With many different rooms and levels, the Angus Barn is the perfect venue for your wedding reception, family reunion, graduation, etc. The Angus Barn even has a large cellar area where the more special activities and meals and events take place, including a monthly themed dinner which in the past has included costume parties and murder mysteries! This is one of the best restaurants in Raleigh and they cook one of the best steaks anywhere in the US. Published by Kevin Coats Raleigh NC
Great Experience – My boyfriend and I went for his birthday recently... we had SUCH a great time. Got there early for a drink in the Turkey Lounge, where the service was quick even though it was busy. When we were seated for dinner, our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and went out of the way for us. He had Chef Royal come say hello, who then sent us out a FANTASTIC dish that he was "working on". NC shrimp, linguini, tomatos, basil, lemon oil and preserved lemon. I HOPE he adds it to the menu because it was to DIE for.
Dinner was chateau briand for two, carved tableside by the chef, which we couldn't even eat because we were already full!
Dinner was followed by a tour of the wine cellar and private dining rooms downstairs. If ever your server offers, don't pass it up!
All in all, the evening was fantastic--not cheap, but we definitely got what we paid for: two bottles of wine, appetizer, salads, entrees, fantastic meal and service for $200. We can't wait to go back!
my boyfriend took me here about a year ago for our 2 year anniversary. on a landscaper's salary i did not think i would ever go. it was amazing! i loved the oysters rockefeller and my steak was cooked perfectly. i cannot wait to try it again!
Never go there when they have buffet – I have been there many times with my family, but on Mother's Day was the first try to go for buffet. Huge mistake! Our reservation was 11:00 a.m. The waitress never explained what was included in the price (e.g. drinks) nor paid attention to our table.
Food was not great for $45 a person. There were no fruits, salad (garden salad only) section only had a couple of dressings, and meat items were chicken and roast beef ONLY. Dessert...I was totally dissapointed.
Angus Barn Wedding – If you are planning a wedding at the Pavilions at Angus Barn, be sure to ask them about the $20,000 minimum on food and drink - because they won't be up front about it!
After 2 months of conversations about the details of the wedding venue (including my emphasis on the importance of price) and waiting a month for the contract, it arrived with the line about the minimum tucked between the usual contract language. When I inquired about it, I was told that the coordinator did not tell me because it didn't come up.
Needless to say, I'll be holding my wedding elsewhere - and while the new venue I am considering has a minimum (of $10,000), at least they are transparent about their policies.
As good as ever - Try the WIld Turkey Lounge – The Barn has long been the best restaurant in Raleigh, especially for steaks. And Ruths' Chris can kiss my tail, because the barn is not "a la carte". HEre you get to enjoy a great atmosphere with lots of great options.
I had the Tuna last week - it was tough not ordering a steak. It was marvelous. I asked for it "lightly seared", and it was essentially raw tuna. TOP GRADE
Overrated – I've eaten here twice, once upstairs in the lounge and once downstairs (where you MUST make a reservation). The atmosphere downstairs literally feels like your eating in a barn (hence the name) but its not a comforting feeling its an open, winding, unromantic feeling. The upstairs lounge has a better atmosphere for sure, I'd recommend it if you do come here. Both times the food was just "OK," and definitely not worth the $100+ tab. My fiance likes his steak med-rare and it did come out that way, but it was on a skillet (a very hot one) which caused the steak to continue to cook and thus made his steak close to well done before he finished eating it! Anyone who loves steak knows this is a problem and I cannot understand how the "beef eaters haven" could think this is a good idea? The wine list is great but thats the best part about this place.
A taste of NC – Excellent wine list. Great food, you get everything included, not the typical a la carte in traditional higher end steak houses. NC Nastalgia is what you see and feel when you walk in. I love that you see evening gowns in one corner, and jeans and a t-shirt in another. Fun place.
Better Steaks and Service elsewhere – I'd heard so much about this place that I was looking forward to my first visit for my birthday. Our food was ok, but I've had better steak elsewhere for much less than we spent at this place. When my husband made the reservation he told them it was for my birthday, so there was a baloon tied to my chair when we were seated. When we finished our meal, the waiter asked if we wanted to order a dessert and he made several recommendations that sounded good so we each ordered something. When we paid our bill and were ready to leave he brought out a small birthday cake for me to take home. Would have been nice to know this was coming and we would have passed on the dessert. I guess he just wanted to fatten the bill so his tip would be more. All in all it was a big disappointment for me.
Best Restaurant in town – Have been to Angus Barn many times. Ask for what you want. Think of menu as starting point. Have had custom orders all the time. For Special occasions ask for Table in celler. Went there on 20th anniversary. Six to Seven course meal with wine for every course. Able to talk to chef as he prepared our meal. My wife loved the tips. $100 per person. Worth every penny. Great steaks and seafood. Have eaten at all the big name restaurants in North America and some in South America. Still in top 5. On a regular meal night can call, get in and out in 1 hour. Better than any outback waiting line. Have 2 great steaks and sides for $90.00 with leftovers for breakfast. I can't get out of other resturants in town for under $70. $20 to be a human - priceless!!! Service is best. Anybody will stop and get your drinks or fix any issue. Week nights busy with Business clients, try Sunday night. Have great buffets at holidays.
