Passing through Danbury on our way to Boston. Everything was top notch from appetizers to entree. Our server, Lisa, was fantastic and went out of her way to make our experience awesome. Get the Thai Calamari, oysters & clams on the half shell and Delmonico Ribeye.

So glad we found this gem! After a 5 pm wedding rehearsal, we took our guests to Jim Barbarie's Restaurant on Padanaram Road and we're glad we did.

It's been here for years and has always served consistently good food. Nice meal, OK prices but nothing extraordinary. You won't be disappointed, but you won't be blown away either.

Every small American city or large town has one. The traditional blue collar "fancy" night out steak joint. I have friends who live in Danbury and when the family wanted to go out for a steak it was "Jim's". I've been with them 4 times over the last three years.

Brought our dad for his 89th birthday. Just outstanding! Large menu, great choices, everything perfectly cooked. Our terrific server knew the menu and wines very well and made some excellent recommendations. Barbarie's made dad's birthday a wonderful experience. We'll be back, and you should go!

A Danbury Classic with a fresh new look and an updated menu ! The prime rib is the best you can get in the area ! Generous portion served with a creamy horseradish sauce is tops on my list . Top notch service and a comfortable booths make it must do for any occasion !

This place is a former favorite, however it seems to have fallen off. On July 3, our anniversary we set out for a great meal. What we got was, no prime rib(why we go) and and overdone overpriced filet and crab. No apologies. Empty dining room,yet seated at the bar. The welcome reception was absent. The love was not in...

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