Small, intimate atmosphere for dinner, very good food and good selection. Service is excellent. This is also a nice place to have lunch. They have very good soups, salads, and sandwiches.

I have been to Barron's on several occasions and for the most part have had a enjoyable experience. However, we met some friends on Sep20, 2014 for dinner and i was not a happy camper. I have ordered pork schnitzel in the past and it was excellent, but I think they have changed their meat to a lessor grade. The... More

I took my girlfriend here for dinner.. very nice and quiet. My girlfriend was a little uncomfortable considering we were underdressed. The staff was nice and on top of their game. The food is magnificent I can't wait to go back and try some more things on the menu.. only downfall the dinner menu doesn't have very much to choose... More

We loved our recent dinner visit to Café Barron's while on a Longview restaurant tour to find a suitable place for a wedding rehearsal dinner. We were so impressed by the service, neat, charming and immaculate surroundings, and most of all the food, that upon eating, I was convinced we could have our rehearsal dinner here! Delicious bread, salads and... More

Your gracious review made our day, THANK YOU! We are family owned and operated and strive to exceed our guests expectations. I regret our group room was not large enough to accommodate your rehearsal dinner - there's nothing we like better than a party! More

Barron's has a delicious menu with excellent soups, salads and desserts! I am spoiled for their tiramisu! The service is exceptional-this is not a chain restaurant. If you enjoy brunch on the weekends, this is the place. After eating, peruse the store as there is a little something for everyone.

Thank you! Just eat your way on through our menu, our new chef has lots of great ideas for daily specials ready for the plate! (Don't forget we're closed Sunday). More

Went to Barron's for the first time to have the Tomato Basil Soup and the Pesto Chicken Farfalle. I did not know that it is also a boutique, body & bath, home décor, and bookstore. I had to look around for the restaurant tucked neatly into the back corner. The atmosphere is intimate and casual. Service was excellent - waited... More

Barron's is a lovely restaurant! The service is excellent and the food is delicious. We moved here from a big city and really struggle with the quality and variety of restaurant food that is available in Longview. Barron's is one of the few exceptions. We enjoy eating at Barron's and wish there were more restaurants like it in Longview. The... More

We like to go to Barron's because it is centrally located and the food and atmosphere is above average for Longview. Service is adequate and prices are reasonable.

We appreciate your comments. We seem to have "missed the mark" on service. "Adequate" is not up to our standards. We will strive to make your next experience far better than average. More
