Warm atmosphere but a very isolated location. Good Root Beer here too. Serviced could be a bit more friendly.
Odd way to order. One side for food (and pay for) and the other side pay for drinks (and pay for) The chicken sandwich was good but would have been much better if the bun was toasted. But it was within walking distance.
I've been enjoying this pizza for years. When people visit from out of town, I'll take them there. Every visitor that has come back to my house has asked to be taken back to Barnaby's for the pizza…… Staff is GREAT!!!
I grew up in Gurnee, IL, and one of my favorite hang outs after a game was at the Barnabys in Waukegan. Well that has long since closed down, but to my pleasure, there is a surviving member of the Barnabys family in Northbrook--and it's pretty much exactly as I remember the one from my youth. OK. This place is... More
This place has been around for over 40 years. Been going there since i was a kid..lived about a block away when it first opened.

Most all sandwiches are char-grilled and tasty. Their... More
Basic Italian fare. Had a pizza, they specialize in thin crust. Pizza was average at best. Stay away from the cheese bread, as it was not good. It was fast and across the street from the hotel I was at.
The Barnabys location has the best thin crust pizza in the area hands down. I agree with the other reviewer for some reason it is best at this location. My wife remembers as a child stopping here for pizza or sandwiches after visiting her great grandmother in the nursing home. They are a fixture in Northbrook. It is dark and... More
I've been going to this place for a couple decades now. Hands down, the best thin crust pizza in Chicago, which is saying something. Food... the pizza is unique. A cracker-thin crust with a pastry edge, sauce is just spicy enough, cheese is great. You really won't find better thin crust anywhere. The atmosphere is, well, unique. And eccentric. You... More
If you don't mind noise, kids, and dim lighting, the place has very good food. Delicious thin crust pizza, pasta, and chicken parmigiana. The ambiance is non existant but if you're just looking for reasonably priced, tasty food, it's worth going.
I've been coming to the Northbrook Barnabys for over 20 years! In my opinion this place has the BEST thin crust pizza in all of Chicagoland. I don't know what it is about the Northbrook Barnabys but the pizza here tastes MUCH better than the pizza at other Barnabys locations (such as the Des Plaines and Schaumburg ones). The spaghetti...
