This establishment seemed to be the local watering hole. One customer at the bar had been served more than enough and was getting sick and gagging as he finally left the bar area. Food was so-so. One of us has an allergy to pork and ordered a chicken quesadilla and after taking one bite, found a slice of bacon in... More

I love their burgers...can't really say much about the rest of the menu because I had a black and blue burger the first time I came here and it was so good I don't even bother to look at the rest of the menu anymore. Do yourself a favor and go. Great atmosphere!

There is no place in Portsmouth that is as much fun as Barons Pub. The Baron Burger special on Wednesday evenings is the best deal in all of Hampton Roads. The staff is friendly and professional and Tyler,the owner, does a great job of making sure that everyone has excellent service. You can not find a place more FUN in... More

I'll first off say that the burger...was delicious. Recommended by the waitress, the bacon cheddar burger was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The bacon and onion straws were also perfectly cooked and just the right amount was on the burger. The fries were cooked just right - crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. They know their burgers and... More
