Great restaurant. Steaks are superb! Great atmosphere, wait staff, bar staff, and cooks! All entrees are wonderful. Family has been going for years, and it just keeps getting better.

Place needs some updating but service and food was good. I had the 7oz tenderloin and the lobster tail.

Prices are up and the quality is down. Used to enjoy this place for the food. The ambience was never much as it is an old, dark, antiquated restaurant. No longer on my hit list.

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

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
