If you're of a certain age you will remember many steakhouses like this one. Dimly lit, old farming implements on the walls, classically uniformed waiters, and good ol' fashioned American steak and potatoes. I feel like I don't even have to detail the menu because it's the same as it always was... read more

This steak house probably hasn't changed a bit in 30 years, including the decor, but it was a charming place with friendly staff and pretty good food. The prime rib was not quite as good as I had hoped, but it wasn't bad either. The free beer cheese and bread was a big hit, as all of us were famished... More

My family stopped at Aberdeen Barn after passing it a couple times while going to/from the downtown Williamsburg area. On the outside it looks like a barn and assumed it would be a casual type restaurant. When we were seated we realized it was more of an upscale place in terms of menu and pricing. Our kids had eaten prior... More

The prime rib melts in your mouth. The seafood bisque was excellent. We look forward to eating here every year. The price is a little price, but worth it.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here while visiting Williamsburg. The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection (rare to med rare) and was fork tender. My wife had the same rave reviews of her Delmonico steak. Be sure to get a baked potato and enjoy the sour cream, chive, and bacon bits that accompany those side. Brandon provided great service... More

This is a very old restaurant in Norfolk that has become an icon. Very gentleman club decor yet frequented by families, couples, and groups. The steaks are amazing and the service is exquisite.

Great prime rib and steaks. A consistently excellent steak and seafood. Reservations are suggested for the weekend. Service is good as well.

The atmosphere reads 80's steakhouse, the servers were helpful and mostly pleasant, but once you taste your first bite of the Prime Rib you forget everything else around you. Melts. In. Your. Mouth! The garlic mash were just okay, but everything else was delicious. Glad we had a coupon for 2 meals from our hotel, as the prices were high.... More

I have to agree with with a previous review, the place is different. The wait staff is very formal and service is excellent but the barn theme seemed somewhat outdated and in need of up dating. In my opinion, the food was average and a bit overpriced. I had the NY strip steak and my wife had a surf &... More
