Good meal

Good food, excellent service. The staff was there every time we needed them and the food was plentiful. A surprise treat was the cheese spread they serve with crackers and breadsticks.

Went for dinner with Family and friends. We were greeted by our host and escorted to a table in the back of the restaurant. We all immediately noticed a strong smell of mold and mildew. We asked for another table and was given one without hesitation. We were greeted by our server Michael. He provided excellent service. Food was very... More

This was a first time visit for me and the Mrs. Our first choice was too full so we tried Aberdeen Barn based on Yelp reviews. It seems as if people are rating it lower than appropriate out of irritation at the prices. Admittedly, it was a pretty penny. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.... More

We had a recommendation to go to the Aberdeen Barn for a great Prime Rib dinner. Plus, our Time Share give us a three course dinner for two coupon so we decided that this would be our romantic dinner out while staying in Williamsburg. I found the restaurant to be exceptionally dark making the menu difficult to read. I actually... More

Overall this was a very good dining experience. The food was good and the service was excellent. The only thing that would make me hesitate going back would be the cost. It is an expensive restaurant. The prime rib was good, but I have had better where I live and for much cheaper. My friend had a steak, which she... More

Fantastic food and service. We were on vacation and had not been here in years. From our past experiences we looked forward to this dinner and was completely satisfied and then more. Our server, Essam was on top of everything and made sure we were having the meal of our life. Food was perfect, service could not have been better.... More

Hubby had the steak. It was simply done but that's how it should be done. Wonderful mashed potatoes. Ok, I admit that I went out on a limb and ordered seafood in a steakhouse (against everything my dad taught me, sorry Dad). I was very pleased, the menu said fresh scallops and they were and plenty of them too.

We were disappointed with the Aberdeen Barn and felt that it wasn't worth the money. It is on the expensive side but that would have been okay if the food had been remarkable. Our dishes were not horrible but the bread sticks were too hard to eat and the rest was mediocre. The service is incredibly dated and, as a... More

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
