Great Prime Rib and Steaks

The food quality was exceptionally good from the Bread to the Potatoes to the Prime Ribs and Steaks. Martinis were perfectly prepared and server was friendly and attentive. A very good dining experience.

Steaks were superb, and the staff were superb ---friendly, helpful and attentive. We had a 10 year old with us and they made a great fuss of her. If there was a down side to this establishment, it was the size of the portions --- they were huge. However, they did advise on starters to ensure that we didn't go... More

I had always wanted to try this place and decided to take my Dad and family on our vacation in June to Williamsburg. Once you step inside the barn, and yes it looks like a barn, you also step into a time warp back 30 years ago. It is quite dark in there and for a "barn", the wait staff... More

The Aberdeen Barn is almost like walking back in time. With the dark wood and waiters who I was told have worked there for years, it reminded me of a different time. The bartender was cute and fun but more importantly well versed in her craft, very efficient, and knowledgeable of both the menu and of the available wines. The... More

Overall, our experience at the Aberdeen Barn was outstanding. The wait staff - was a little older and experienced - which we absolutely enjoyed. Angelo, our waiter, was very professional, courteous, and attentive (coming by the table at the right time). The prime rib looked incredible and tasted even better. I would say, it was one of the best prime... More

This is a cute looking restaurant and as the name states it looks like a barn. Do not let that fool you, this is a wonderful restaurant. The decor reminds you of old time steak houses. The waiter had personality plus. He was attentive and knowledgeable, funny and kind. The food was very good from the pork chops to the... More

I went looking for a good steak so I ordered the big ribeye. I was going to share with my grandson. Of course they wanted two dollars for him to eat a few bites of my steak. But that wasn't the reason for the bad review. The waste of such a nice piece of meat was. It was cooked perfectly,... More
