Good Food at a Fair Price

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.

Always go here for good steak. Very attentive staff. Rolls are amazing but very hot when they are put out. A true staple of danbury.

We had excellent service and the food was exceptional. We all started with the soup of the day which was a tasty butternut squash and very filling. I've been going to Jim Barbarie's for years and have never been disappointed.

The wait staff left a lot to be desired. We had not been to Jim Barbaries in some time so my husband and I were very excited about going out for a nice dinner. It was such a disappointment we almost left without getting our meal. The wait staff is the first person you interact with and ours was rude.... More

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

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

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
