I went here based on previous reviews written on TripAdvisor. I went specifically for a great tasting steak. I ordered med-rare Heavy New York Strip for $34.00.

Can't beat the Aberdeen Barn for a top quality chop house. The steaks and sides were great. Service was perfect. You will always have a great meal here.

We came here with another couple during our weekend getaway. The waiters were super nice and very polite. The service was quick. The food, to me, was good. But it was a little plain and pricey. I got a lot of food, but I don't feel it was worth the $40 I paid. I ordered prime rib, and that's just... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Vacation Resort and the front desk recommended the resturant and even gave us a coupon for two meals for $48, with a name written on the top, which is the attendant name, who gets some type of credit for sending people there. The food, was not good, as it was bland. My wife had... More

We always try to stop at the Aberdeen Barn for dinner. I have been here countless times and have never ordered anything but their prime rib. As it is reasonably priced for the quality. I have had more expensive prime rib but none any better than Aberdeen Barn. And i definitely have not equal prime rib at a cheaper price.... More

We had such a wonderful experience at Aberdeen Barn on Christmas Eve that we decided to return every year for Christmas Eve dinner! We were able to get 6:30 pm dinner reservations within 24 hours of calling. We were promptly greeted at the door by a pleasant gentleman and seated immediately in a comfortable booth. Jeannie was our server and... More

This was our second time visiting the barn. The prime rib is definitely one of the best I've had in a long time. Dim lighting sets the mood for a very enjoyable dinner with that special someone.

Each time we visit Williamsburg, we make a point of going to Aberdeen Barn. Service is always good, prices are reasonable, and food is always good. No worries about sending back your steak because it's not done to your specifications. It's always done right the first time.

You don't find these kinds of places anymore!!! The service was great and the food was great. The only improvement could be a bit more seasoning to the steak, otherwise it was good stuff. My wife came here for a family vacation 25 years ago and the place has not changed... It is a nice place to step back into... More

This place is very nice. I like the atmosphere and the food is delicious. My only issue is that it is entirely too dark inside. Now I am all for a romantic cozy table with low lighting but this definitely goes to the extreme for me. Other than that - I give it a ten!
