My fiance and I recently went to Jim Barbaries for lunch, and we were hoping to talk to someone about having our rehearsal dinner there as well. We had such a negative experience, we didn't even ask about the rehearsal dinner. Frankly I just wanted to get out and on with my day. A couple immediate off-putting things: We were... More

Wait Staff was friendly and food was good. Large portions as well. We were seated immediately and the prices were very reasonable even with a bottle of wine.

As always the food at Jim Barbarie's was excellent. Our waiter was named Mark and did an extraordinary job waiting on my family.

Great food. Good servings. Attentive staff. Not really much more you can ask for. I will return. The Salmon special on a Thursday was very tasty!

I often meet with family in this restaurant to grab a cocktail or to catch up over lunch/dinner. Staff is attentive and the decor is just right that you can show up dressed down or done right up. Food is delicious with plenty of variations from a typical American fare. Great for anything from a party of twenty right down... More

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. From the moment Jason, the event coordinator, took my son and I on a tour of the restaurant, we sampled some of their delicious food and gracious service, we knew we had... More
