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.

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. If you are looking for... More

We have started going after work on Wednesdays for a beer and a burger and been having a great time. I think the food has improved, the burgers and pizza's have been really good. I love that they have Stella on TAP and other great choices. Nice clean bathrooms, great service.

Big claim. You order the Baron Burger and it comes to you cooked exactly the way you ordered it with a side of fries. So why is it the best burger in HRVA? It is not so big that its impossible to eat. Its not a Big Mac. Its the perfect size burger that when served with lettuce, tomato, onion... More

The Baron Burger is always a safe bet. You get a lot for your money at this local pub. The service is hit or miss.
