I had not been to Balloons in ages and nothing has changed ( which is a good thing too). The exterior had us wondering if we should enter but were glad we continued on in. The food and the number of choices still remains one of the best in the area. Wait staff is great and the prices are reasonable.... More

When you find a neighborhood restaurant filled with regulars, you know your in the right place. Don't be put off with being right behind the prison. It has to be somewhere. Seriously, we have been going to Baloons for many years and although it changed hands a few years ago, Bernie has maintained the quality. The food is good and... More

My husband and I ate at Balloons Restaurant on May 31. We were spending the night at a bed and breakfast in Auburn and had looked at the menu and read the reviews on trip advisor. Soooo glad we went there!!! We were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant by the bartender and a waiter, and taken to... More

We were referred by a co-worker of mine and decided to try it out. When we arrived, we parked next to a prison on a side street and were surprised by the outside decor but I am so glad we went in and tried it out. The hostess was so welcoming and friendly. Our waiter was professional but friendly and... More

Inside and outside decor.. nothing to write home about.... But that is just ok when you think about the food you are going to be served! The service was excellent! I have never been to a restaurant that had people constantly filling your water glass. We all ordered different things and tried each others. Everything was great! The sauce was... More

Did not enjoy our last visit to Balloons as much as prior visits. The food was good & the service was fine. In the past we found everything to be outstanding...not sure what was off. Steak was OK but not juicy, etc. Will try again
