“Disappointing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

When we travel we always like to try local places rather than go to chain restaurants. This time I wish we'd gone to a chain. The service was poor to say the least. We arrived 15 minutes after it opened and was told there would be a 15 minute wait. From the waiting area, we could see dozens of empty tables! The waiter brought us the wrong order, and we did receive our food, the sides weren't what we order. My husband enjoy his steak, but I had to send mine back, because it medium rare rather than medium well, as I'd ordered. It was also fatty and full of gristle. The steaks are not cheap, but this place has the nerve to charge 75 cents for water, because as the sign says, "we all need to conserve water." The next time we're in Odessa and want to eat steak, we'll definitely skip the Barn Door and go to a chain steakhouse instead!

“Salty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The 14 oz. ribeye was seasoned while being cooked with the end result tasting like the cap fell off of the seasoning shaker during use. The strawed onions also were too salty. The fried okra spent too much time in the deep fryer and was very hard. I also would say that for the quality of the steak and prime rib that we had, the restaurant is greatly over-priced.

“Scrumptious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This place has a western theme. They serve you with the biggest block of cheese I've ever seen in my life and a mini loaf of bread. We all ordered steaks and they were soooo good. If you made a trip to Odessa, you have got to make a stop here.

“Wish they would move their steakhouse to New Jersey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I stuffed myself, everything was cooked with care and the service was friendly right from the get go. It all started with that block of cheese and ended with our business dinner party devouring some perfectly cooked steaks and having a great relaxed evening.
