Great place, cool design, nice bar scene (if mostly in the over-fifty range). A high proportion of the crowd appeared to be local couples. Maybe because it's the closest to the beach, the BNI always seems to have the cutest staff - young, hip, fun....More

Popular local restaurant that is open year round. New owners kept popular old favorites but have added some new items. Busy bar scene.

This is a long time establishment in Orleans. The new owners have done a magnificent job refurbishing the building. Sadly, the food is pretty awful. I hope they get a new chef and new menu, but until then, I will not be going again.

I went with a friend and had the flounder piccata. It was light, very tasty, well prepared and just wonderful. The waitress was attentive, and very friendly. I recommend it highly

I dined at the Barley Neck on Good Friday in anticipation of kicking off the holiday weekend. My first visit since Joe sold the restaurant. I was surprised by the limited and non-creative menu. My entire party of 5 wished we had gone somewhere else...More

We appreciate your feedback, please note that our menu was our off-season menu that was limited, but we'll be debuting our new menu right around the corner that I think you'll be very impressed with!

We frequented the BNI twice this week. Brunch at a nearly deserted bar was fine with attentive service. Dinner was a totally different experience. The bar staff on a night that was only moderately crowded were more occupied with chatting up their friends at the...More
