What a little jewel!

We had dinner with friends and everyone was very happy with their meals. Two of us had the Bogey burger which was huge! The chicken special, the quesadillas, grouper, and filet mignon were also wonderful. My flourless chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream was a dream come true. We will be back... read more

My husband grew up in Hayes Barton and at lunch here with his mom and grandmother. We were on a trip down memory lane and stopped in for lunch just now. The two people working behind the counter were more interested in their chat with co workers and writing specials on the white board to take our order or the... More

Dinner was ridiculous! Be back soon. Highly recommend splitting an entree to support the pre and post dinner options. Raspberry chocolate cake highly recommended.

Chicken pot pie and meatloaf always a favorite of mine but I have never had a bad meal. Excellent (and huge) desserts which vary each time. Cool decor.

I was in town visiting my Mom and after she picked me up at the airport, we were looking for a place to have some food and she brought me here upon recommendation from a friend. This place is adorable, something right out of the 50s, WWII and other great memorabilia decorated the walls, and you can either sit at... More

Old time-y and very small but this place features a robust menu and absolutely the most amazing desserts I've ever seen, and I'm from the third coast!!! Portion sizes are more than generous (the meatloaf entree easily feeds two), and decor is WWII and beyond. The staff is attentive, the service was great, the food was hot, and the drinks... More

The Dinners were great and large portions! You have to save room for desserts! Everything is baked fresh and looks wonderful.

It looks like an upscale diner in the northeast (PA-NJ), down to the Hollywood pictures on the walls. And, being the back entrance to a working pharmacy, at lunchtime it is pretty much a diner. But at dinnertime, it's a whole new world! We were skeptical because of the diner look, but the outside menu was very promising and Frank... More

I've heard about Hayes Barton for years! I've seen the lines out the door at dinner and eyed the pharmacy from the road. I've even sampled the desserts at a wedding or two, but I've never eaten in. I finally went this week with a group of co-workers for a birthday lunch. I ordered the grilled cheese with bacon and... More
