Sausage was so so , bacon crispy which is fine, and ham was ok. Hash browns not hot. I had ordered the schnitzel breakfast. Was very... read more

My daughter has always raved about the food and friendly atmosphere at Barb & Ernie's. I had decided to go there once by myself a few years ago and enjoyed my brunch (can't remember what I ordered). It was crowded but you felt like part of a big family. There was a TV playing video's of vacations Barb & Ernie... More

Short wait to get seated. Ordered eggs Benedict with bratwurst. Everything was rushed because they were busy. Showed up a sloppy mess, eggs fallen off English muffin, undercooked brat like barley warm in the middle. Hollandaise was good and sausage flavor not bad. The home made mustard and curry ketchup was the best part of my meal. Overall not good,... More

I try to have brunch here with my sons every time I visit Edmonton. The food is consistently good with generous, well prepared breakfast meals. The service is good and the owners are usually there to maintain the high standards. The place is hopping every time I attend which is testimony to their maintenance of food and service quality.

We didn't but he said no problem it will be about a 15 minute wait. I thought to myself it must be a great place if reservations are needed to garuntee a... More

My husband and I have been going to Barb and Ernie's for many years! In fact it was in high school I first came to Barb and Ernie's and the decor (most of which is gone now) inspired me to travel to Europe at 16 on a group trip. Now I've been to Europe 5 times! Dining at B&E's is... More

Great service, good food and lots of it. The building is dated, but it is full for a reason. I had the eggs Benedict and a pancake. Both were good, but the pancake was huge. I am a big guy, but I did not come close to finishing both. Prices were reasonable as well. Great fun.

Several trips to Edmonton, driving by and i always said we should try that place. Well finally today was the day. I was excited to try it based on past reviews. It was an hour wait at the door. I thought based upon this the food would be fantastic. It was indeed full of diners and very loud, we could... More

This place is wonderful . Great family run biz the old fashion way . Everyone needs to try the Eggs Benny . They are by far the best in the city . Most times there is a line up . It moves fast and is worth the wait . Just go and taste the real food .
