I had a the Swordfish which melted in my mouth! The asparagus were very good, but the risotto was NOT! It had a smell. I... More

The quality and portions of the meals, combined with the superb service were the absolute best we discovered so far while traveling to Longview on business. We traveled from the DFW area and are used to fine dining restaurants and to find a restaurant such at Café Barron's was a delight and a surprise. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner tonight... More

It's amazing that Cafe Barron's is only the #5 restaurant in Longview, listed on Trip Advisor, and when compared to the four above it there is absolutely no comparison! Cafe Barron is the only fine dining restaurant in Longview. The restaurant is not only family owned for decades, but year after year providing an excellent fine dining experience, with professional... More

Perfect place to meet for dinner and drinks without the drunk obnoxious crowd. Most recent visit was with several girl friends and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks!

We enjoyed the atmosphere almost as much as the excellent choices on the ever changing menu. Excellent pork and a huge beef steak filled our plates, specialty drinks with good ingredients cheered us on... the appetizers we chose from coconut shrimp and... More

The newly remodeled Café Barron's features a full service bar, extensive wine & beer list and three imaginative menus: lunch, dinner, and Saturday brunch, with small plates featured for afternoon cocktails. A few of our favorites include veal picatta, hot 'n crunchy chicken, pomegranate salmon, a mouthwatering buffalo burger and hand-cut rib eyes. Our focus is providing delicious innovative food in a refreshing, upscale, unpretentious comfortable space.
