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

In town house hunting and was looking forward to a glass of wine and a good dinner the evening before the drive back to The Woodlands. I'm having just that but at another local restaurant (where I dined yesterday). I requested a table for dinner for one and was led to a small table...in the bar. Looked up from the... More

I had a very enjoyable evening the service was great, I was seated quickly, and the waitress was there to take my drink order almost as soon as I sat down. I ordered the Filet (rare), which I usually only do at specifically steak restaurants, and was happy I did. I had one of the best steaks I've ever eaten.... More

We were in town for 1 night and feel very fortunate to have been referred to Cafe Barron's. We sat on the patio--a perfect night, with those beautiful murals on one side and a wall of lush ferns protecting us from the parking lot on the other side. The food was outstanding. We both had the lemon basil salmon. It... More

Very good experience always. This is a gift shop/book store/restaurant. Food and atmosphere is wonderful. Very central location in Longview. Come and bring your friends! It hard for me to select a specific time or event because I come here often with family, friends or alone.
