If the soft shell crab are in season, try them both broiled and fried. You won't go wrong! Quaint setting.

The space is really very pleasant for casual celebrations with larger groups, though noise level can be a little on the high side, especially if you go with older folks who are hard of hearing. Wait staff is hit or miss. On a recent evening, the host was stressed and overworked, but friendly. Our waitress was palpably impatient with elderly... More

I opted for a 3 pound lobster baked and stuffed with the most amazing crabmeat stuffing I have ever tasted. The service was excellent and food was even better. I will... More

The parking at Barbarie's is always an issue; luckily, once you find a spot, the staff seats you right away. The staff is outstanding, friendly and accommodating. The menu offers quite a few options and is served in a timely manner. However, the food is nothing special.. Definitely not worth the price that you pay.

I really do not understand why people want to eat this place. The place is very dark, hard to read menu, too noisy to converse with patron. Food were edible but not that great, price is higher for the quality. Also, parking choice is not that great either. I went there once, won't go back even give me free meal.

I at at a bar table at about 5 PM on Wednesday evening, expecting to be able to choose from a half a dozen early bird specials for 14 bucks, based on website information. These were nowhere to be found on the menu, but I had a reuben - heavy on the corned beef, skimpy on the sauerkraut - and... More

I've lived in the Danbury area for 15 years now, and only recently had dinner at this establishment. I'd have to say that I dined here two times within the same week and both meals were delicious. The wait staff certainly knows the menu and were very helpful in giving suggestions. The food was plentiful and really good. I always... More
