Best Burger in Portsmouth!!! The "Baron Burger" cheeseburger is a delight. Fresh ground beef cooked over fire with two cheeses and all the fixing you want. Accompanied with awesome fries you can't go wrong. A bar/pub atmosphere ,with table section away from bar. Best Cheeseburger In Portsmouth !

Baron's Pub is truly one-of-a-kind! The food, service, and atmosphere are always top-notch! On weekend nights they have excellent entertainers and although it sometimes gets packed, it never disappoints!

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

My wife and i had a late dinner here after going to an ODU football game. The place was jumping and had a friendly staff. The food was great, the soup of the day was very tasty and we enjoyed our meal. There was only one TV there so i think if they add a few more, it'll make the... 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!
