Nostalgic Restaurant...good food

This establishment is pretty nostalgic. It's a "wait on yourself" restaurant. You order your food, grab drinks from the bar, and sit and wait for your number to be called. Traveling to the Chicago area, we had to order pizza! It was a pastry-like crust, but very good. We went with a big group... read more

The pizza is only thin crust. Light and crispy and great flavor. It is kinda of self serve , which saves on tipping. This place has been in Northbrook for over 30 years.

Barnaby's has been a family favorite for over 30 years. The pizza is a little different than the usual but that is why we like it and although pizza is what we usually have, everything else has been good too.

To start off with there is no directions on what the hell to do. The table staff doesn't speak English. So u need to ask someone eating to figure out what to do. Our experience was different. It was loud inside. The pizza doesn't really have a favor. The dough was hard as a rock. The root beer was flat... More

This was my second visit to Barnaby's the food was incredible, had the steak sandwich with fries and a beer. We drove 700 miles to visit family, I made it a point to have lunch there before we went back home. Can't wait to go back!!

We've been going here for 30 years and keep coming back for the thin pizza, BBQ beef sandwiches and the tasty free cheese and crackers.

This place has a rare treat. Their pizza features a corn meal crust. I always order the sausage with onion. This place has been around and a family favorite for 30 years. They have a bar there also. The burger is good too!

My experience with Barnaby's goes back years. All the way back to South Bend, IN and my time there at the school with a Golden Dome. Those were the days! And there was almost nothing better than going to the local Barnaby's for one of their very special pizzas. (Seriously, it was an evening event. There wasn't much going on... More

Dined twice at Barnabys while staying across the street at the Renaissance for a conference. Ordered pizza both times and was very pleased. Good flavorful sauce with just a hint of bite. Thin, crispy crust, just the right amount of ingredients. Bar had only limited drafts, could have been better, and the bar man was a bit, shall we say,... More

This is my favorite pizza.anywhere. The pizza is made with a corn meal based crust that is crispy and delicious. This is a very casual restaurant, not ideal for a date but rather for the family, some lunch or dinner after golf with the guys, or for group gatherings. The lighting is dim and the decor is wood everywhere, the... More
