I'll first off say that the burger...was delicious. Recommended by the waitress, the bacon cheddar burger was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The bacon and onion straws were also perfectly cooked and just the right amount was on the burger. The fries were cooked just right - crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. They know their burgers and... More

Our first choice for lunch or dinner, Baron's is a mainstay in Olde Towne. They've been here for 27 years! Good pub food, burgers, pizzas, salads and surprisingly good fried oysters. The bottomless sweet tea is a real southern treat. Our most recent meal, a late lunch on Monday was perfect. We had a tuna melt with fries, and a... More

Cute little place but I don't think I'll be going back. The service was pretty good but the food wasn't. The soda was so expensive and the food wasn't great. There was flies EVERYWHERE! Wouldn't recommend this place.. There are many great places on the same block

I love Thurs nights at Baron's. They have fried shrimp, scallops or oysters for $.65 each. The pound of steamed shrimp is discounted also. They are large and cooked well. Great live music at 9 pm. There are other specials on the other nights. Check it out.

We enjoyed our dinner here. This evening spot has pretty good cocktails. The dinner was fair quisine for the price. There was nothing particularly remarkable. The staff worked hard and we have no complaints. It is a pub, therefore with that comes a "not so quiet" atmosphere. I would eat here again.

We are from the the South wanted to go to local pub to hang out. The service was good and they were very polite. The food was great for the price. I wish I could have spent more time there to just admire the different people coming in. It was a real man's place but my wife and daughter enjoyed... More

Figured I would give it a try after reading the reviews. First, there were a lot of flies. There is a wide array of food to choose from, waitress was very nice and attentive, but the food was not very good. It wasn't terrible, but nothing I would go back for. I think this would be more of a place... More

Went here as a group of 7 guys. We were all VERY impressed with our sweet, dainty waitress; not only did she take drink & dinner orders for 7 guys without writing Anything down (and getting everything correct!), she carried those gigantic, heavy glass beer mugs to the table like a champ! Food was delicious, and very reasonably priced! But... More
