Baron's is an Olde Towne institution, for good reason. Comfortable warm and homey, the food is consistently well prepared and service attentive. We enjoy sitting on the outside during warmer days and watching the busy downtown go by. Inside there is a large bar with many different sized tables down on the floor to easily accommodate parties from two to... More

Good food, good atmosphere, but dirty. We sat down to a greasy table, and had to ask our server for a bar rag to clean it. The place is looking in need of a little TLC and deep cleaning.

Very good food in a down home atmosphere served by very friendly people. Can't beat the prices. If you want fancy this is not it but wow, the food is great.

Going here for food is hit and miss. I have been here twice - first time I got a burger and it was ok but liked my Reuben better the second visit. Plenty of locals hang out here so it is a watering hole. There is some outdoor seating and they maximize seating indoors as it is a bit tight.

We took the ferry over from Norfolk and decided to give Barons a try. My husband had the sea food platter. The fish was over breaded and greasy. The burgers looked great and the Beer was cold and reasonably priced. It's a good place to hang out and have a couple of beers. We sat outside which was nice except... More

Moved into Old Towne about a year ago and have been fortunate to try most of the restauants in the down town area. Hands down Barons has the best burger and maybe the coldest beer on High street. An old style pub with friendly bar and wait staff. The best news is the kitchen is open late at night and... More

My old student and geocaching partner came here to eat - our second time. He had the Monday special - meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy, with corn and corn bread, while I had their signature burger with sauted onions, cheese and mushrooms. WOW. I liked the fact that I could get cole slaw instead of fries - my stomach... More

My daughter and I went here to have a few drinks before a movie. Upon entering we were allowed to pick our own table. A waitress greeted us right away. She explained to us about the drinks that were on happy hour and recommended a few. Once we order she had our drinks to us quickly. During our 45 minutes... More

Baron's Pub is one of Olde Towne Portsmouth's staple restaurants that have made it when so many others have come and gone!. That's because the family managed and owned pub has consistently stayed on top of their game. Always rated the best burgers in Olde Towne and the food offerings are fairly priced as well.
