Trendy Sports Bar in Old Downtown

I had been at this place once before with some friends. I decided to swing in again for dinner as we were in town for a Play. Its wasn't very busy on a Wednesday night but we had to sit for a short while waiting for someone to come which is kinda awkward. We both got some sort of Cheeseburgers... read more

If you have never been to a Barney's, it is as much an experience as it is a restaurant. Sometimes that isn't a good thing, but Barney's gets away with it. The restaurant has the Florida/California beach bar thing going, with the usual kitsch of license plates tacked to the ceiling, and old bus with seating inside, motorcycles and all... More

Was in town to see the University of Arizona play UCLA at the Rose Bowl. Barney's Beanery was the pre-game meal. It has a great location in the middle of Old Pasadena. The place is fairly large and, on game days, very crowded. I had a few beers (good), some wings (okay) and a burger (a bit small, but good).... More

Friend and I went in to watch the final round of the Masters while the wives were away while visiting Pasadena. Nice food, burgers, fries, chill etc and good beer. For any sports fans out there this is heaven. Pool tables and dozens of tv screens/individual seating tvs with golf, soccer, baseball, tennis etc to service most sports fans Service... More

We've eaten at this California institution many times over the years & it never disappoints....chili is what they're famous for but just about everything is good. Just as good as the food is the funky interior and history that goes with it....enjoy!!

I've only been here for meals, but I understand it's quite the scene when pool and karaoke start. Hint 1: This is a quieter place at lunch Hint 2: it's definitely a bar, but if you bring kids, ask to sit in the bus. Hint 3: The Classic chili is the best

I had gone to the Barney's in West hollywood prior to this one in Pasadena. I took a client to this one in Pasadena. The food and atmosphere was great it was what my client wanted a California landmark restaurant meal, old school as he said.

We ate here after a museum visit. The place was jumping. Each table has its own TV. Fun place, but very loud. We chose Mexican food & it was delicious.

We came here to enjoy a last time out with our friends. They chose Barney's because they had heard it was the place to go for fun. It might be great for beer and sports (there are televisons everywhere) but it is certainly not a place to chat because it is LOUD! I realized it was our mistake in choosing... More
