We arrived at the restaurant on a Thursday evening and were told that it would be a few minutes because the kitchen was backed up - which I think is great because I'd rather not be seated and then wait forever for food. They directed us to a very cute bar in the back of the restaurant with nice comfy... More

The food was nothing special the wait staff was very nice and the service was ok. They can handle large groups. It seemed like they herded you all into the upstairs room and everyone is talking over everyone else and it's so loud, I had to get up and leave. I don't think I'm going back anytime soon and never... More

A very busy restaurant. We were able to get a seat at a table that had not yet been cleaned. Waitstaff wiped table off with wet cloth and left it wet while place menus down, so we ad to wait table to "air dry" Staff did not seem interested in making our visit anywhere near exceptional. We both had Chicken... More

We been here before and the food has been pretty good. Tonight must have been an off night because several items were poorly executed. The calamari appetizer was excellent and tender. It was downhill from here. The fish and chips were way over cooked to the point to being inedible. The fish was dry and mushy, and everything tasted burnt.... More

Surprising first experience at "The Barn & Grill" early on a Wednesday evening visiting with old friends we wanted a few drinks and "catch up time" before dinner. Continually rushed to order food, when we did order, salads came out and then meals were brought out a minute later. Sent back as "the kitchen is in a rush tonight" was... More

Spicy beef quesadilla, bruschetta, and wings are great appetizers to share. The burgers were HUGE and worth every mouthful. Same can be said for the steak salad. Pizza looked yummy. Bar area filled with locals who know good value for their money. Only drawback is function room is on the 2nd floor and there is no elevator access nor bathroom... More

Who doesn't love 1/2 price burger night at Ellacoya!! Burgers and beer are great! Onion rings (extra) were fine. Service was attentive and atmosphere very nice. Only short wait for a table. I have gone each time that I have visited my friend and will request to go back next year! Enjoy!

My son and I went here on a cold chilly spring day a few days before Mother's day. We got inside and they had the fireplace going which was a nice touch. I had a hamburger and fries and my son had a pizza. The only thing I had a problem with is that the waitress was socializing with a... More

First I want to say I never have given a really bad review. I feel I am fair and give the benefit of the doubt. But today my husband and I stopped at Ellacoya Barn & Grille. It took 10 minutes for the waitress to ask what we wanted to drink. All we wanted was a Coke and iced tea.... More
