Excellent food. Under staffed. The three employees, 1 server, 1 busser, and 1 chef, did an outstanding job considering it was a busy holiday weekend, but we could see the frustration. We are locals and had not been to the restaurant for a long while. We would go back for the food, but the... read more

Band aid in my food!! Staff told me chef was having a "bad day". Served to my 3 year old daughter. Contacted San Bernadino Board of Health. I hope this business is shut down

A friend recommended Barnstorm, so we gave it a try. We made a reservation on a Friday night, which was good as it's a very small restaurant. There was one mistake after another. They didn't serve us the salad dressings we ordered, so we asked for the correct ones. When our entrees arrived, they mixed up our potato orders. When... More

Great breakfast options! Dinners on Friday-Sunday, I believe. Many local musicians entertain on the weekends! A favorite restaurant with the locals. Weekend dinners entrees are excellent! Make reservations since the restaurant gets busy on the weekends. Excellent service. Your children will not be bored!

This hidden gem can get very busy. We waited for a table by the window. Glad we waited. It was fun watching the planes come & go. The food was very good. My husband had the eggs benedict and said the sauce needed a bit more flavor. I had the Machaca and it was very good. We'll come back next... More

I went to this restaurant specifically for German food. I saw no less than two advertisements in the papers for this place, and both said, “Authentic German.” Let me say that there is nothing about this place that would remotely give you that impression. I was up in Big Bear for the Oktoberfest and thought I’d start my adventure off... More

Great restaurant with THE BEST atmosphere...an airport! Super good for flying in and getting a bite and cheap gas, great for locals too who like the friendly airport atmosphere. Oh, and the food was good too!

This restaurant is located in the airport...not very many cars in the parking lot for dinner so we weren't sure as we approached, but so glad we went in. Little pricey for the location ($$$) and atomsphere ($$) but the food is generous and really well done. Our family of five had a little bit of everything and can't complain.... More

This is a wonderful place to have lunch. There home made soups are to die for. The service is very good. We have only had lunch here and will continue to go there for lunch. There menu items selection is very good.

My husband and I hadn't been to the Barnstorm for several years. Decided to try it again after receiving a birthday coupon in the mail. We came in for dinner on a Friday night. What a pleasant surprise - the restaurant is much improved from our last visit! Nice view of the airplanes landing and very nice ambience. My husband... More
