. Christmas luncheon

Our office Christmas luncheon was held here for about 12 of us. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. Not a single one of us complained about anything. Portion sizes were good, flavors were great, atmosphere was perfect.

Cafe Barron's has been one of my favorite local restaurants for quite some time. When they invested in a few interior decor and updated menu, it was a dream come true. There are few places in town that equal the upscale environment, but what sets it apart are the attentive staff, delicious menu, and wine selection. This is a destination... More

One of the best fine dining restaurants in Longview. Very attractive facilities with exceptional service and an excellent menu of the most outstanding entrees in the city. The chef is one of the premiere chefs in the area and it's worth a visit multiple times to enjoy all the fabulous menu items available. A great venue for business as well... More

The food was okay, nothing spectacular. My husband and I were out for dinner after a tough week - and were seated in the bar. We didn't know there were other choices for dining areas and we weren't asked. So our "quiet, wanting to connect, relax together" dinner had two large screen TVs and several groups drinking and laughing around... More

I met four others here for lunch meeting. We were seated in a large booth that's worked well for our meeting. I was told they had recently remodeled but it was my first visit so I can't make a comparison. The staff was pleasant, and the waiter was attentive without being obnoxious. We were able to stay for two hours... More

I'd like to personally invite you back to Cafe Barron's because I'm confident you will find a new favorite entree. May I suggest our famous "Hot N' Crunchy Chicken" or a Mesquite Bison Burger? Also, our Sonoran Chicken Sandwich is my current addiction! Thank you for providing a review and I hope to see you back soon. More

Recently renovated and it was done very well. I especially like the new bar area. Service is generally good and food is always good and sometimes excellent. I recommend the maple roasted salad and the cafe pasta or veal piccata. One of a few restaurants in Longview with an atmosphere conducive to special occasions.

You're not alone, we love our new bar area as well! (And you obviously have excellent taste if the cafe pasta and veal piccata are some of your "favorites") Thanks for the review, we are looking forward to your next visit! More

I be gone here many times for someone's birthday lunch. It's been recently renovated and it's nice. They have a dish on Fridays only that is called crunchy spicy chicken...oh my word... It's SOOO good! They have a boutique to brown in after or before lunch. Very nice place in Longview to eat.

Sabrina, it's great to hear that you've enjoyed many lunches in our newly renovated cafe. We'd love for you stop by and browse the boutique again as well. Don't forget, if you have a "Hot N' Crunchy" chicken craving any night during the week (Tues-Sat), you can always order it from our dinner menu! Thanks for the review! More

Cafe Barron's has the best salads and light lunches anywhere. The complimentary crusty bread and butter are great. Try not to fill up on them. The maple pecan salad is my favorite. The well trained serving staff make a diner feel like lunch is a party. Soups are equally good .l
