Have been 3 times, was a favorite of a friend, first time was a good time and good meal. Last 2 times were not much to write home about the food was awful. Too much salt on fries, burger not cooked (and I like medium rare) skimpy servings. Swore never to go back. This is more of a bar vs... More

I have been ordering the Baron Burger for over 20 years--It is not only the best burger in Portsmouth, but also in the entire Hampton Roads area.

Best Burger in Portsmouth!!! The "Baron Burger" cheeseburger is a delight. Fresh ground beef cooked over fire with two cheeses and all the fixing you want. Accompanied with awesome fries you can't go wrong. A bar/pub atmosphere ,with table section away from bar. Best Cheeseburger In Portsmouth !

Baron's Pub is truly one-of-a-kind! The food, service, and atmosphere are always top-notch! On weekend nights they have excellent entertainers and although it sometimes gets packed, it never disappoints!

This establishment seemed to be the local watering hole. One customer at the bar had been served more than enough and was getting sick and gagging as he finally left the bar area. Food was so-so. One of us has an allergy to pork and ordered a chicken quesadilla and after taking one bite, found a slice of bacon in... More
