I wrote a review back in 2014 and thought I would provide an update. Came home from work and didn't feel like cooking or travelling....so we went to The Barn Door a block away....like we have done for over 30 years. We go far less than we used to..... it just feels dated and tired when we are there. When... More

Interesting atmosphere - in keeping with the "barn" theme, the restaurant atmosphere is dim and quiet. Seems like a place where the locals meet for a quite meal. Service was very good and food was good as well. Menu has basic "diner fare" with all the usual suspects - club sandwiches, burgers, spaghetti, open-face roast beef, etc.

This used to be a barn and it shows on the inside. It does have its charm but it is dark. As many other reviewers stated there's nothing unusual about the menu. Prices seem to be average. I had a hot roast beef with gravy with a baked potato, and fried clams. The roast beef portion was ample and good.... More

My Husband and I went there for dinner last evening. I have been many times before but not for about thirty years. Nice atmosphere, quiet and romantic. The food was better in the past, but still decent, prompt service. The salad was the freshest I've tasted in a long time.

I love the name "Barn Door" but the inside is quite dark and gloomy. There seem to be a lot of older locals who eat there - they all knew each other. Waitresses seemed to know everyone as well. Food wasn't fancy, more home style cooking. Bit too much salt on dishes for my taste.

I've been a client for 50 years? The clientele has grown old, like me. The food is good for a bar. I always order the fried shrimp. My wife and dad order scallops and filet. The drink pours are generous. Service has always been good, sometimes a little slow on a busy night. This is a very nice place, with... More

One the worst restaurant's I've ever been to the food was horrible and the service was just as bad. The only reason I even went is because my husband and two boys wanted to try it. I knew just from the look of the place it wasn't going to be good. Needless to say I will never go back

Went in for a late lunch and was the only patron who didn't graduate from high school with Moses. The place looked like a 1970's idea of a cozy country restaurant. The food was average at best. I got the crab cake broiled and would bet that is came from a food service box. Wife had the burger which was... More

Good food in a family setting. Well patronized by the locals. Tables are quite close together in a "homey" setting and tends to be rather noisy with the chatter of customers. Food was homestyle and tasty although somewhat overpriced for this type of restaurant.

Always enjoy coming to the Barn Door since I was a kid. Never had a bad meal in 20 years! Everything from the Barn Burger, club sandwich, NY strip.
