As you enter you see an inviting bar and beyond, a dimly lit elegant dining area. The wait staff look so nice in solid black dress. The furniture is comfortable with plenty of elbow room around the tables.
The menu, wine list, drink menu each offer so many choices to find the perfect drink. We had crab dip, oysters, steak, salmon, salad, baked potatoes and everything was excellent. Beautiful dinnerware and crystal. Just an elegant night. Please dress and make it special. Now, off to the side entrance is another part of the restaurant where burgers etc are served. Casual dress and outdoor seating.

This is the second time we have had this experience. A group of friends visits the Barbed Rose for dinner. Many meals were very good but one person orders the exotic game. It is not cooked properly and in this last visit, the cut was obviously full of grissel. When brought to the waiters attention, there is no offer to replace or recook. The wild game dishes are not cheap and this place has obviously not mastered the art of choosing and preparing it properly.

If you go and stay with the basic steak or seafood dishes the food is quite good and the service adequate. I give it 3 stars instead of 2 because what they do well is worth the high prices.

We ate at the burger bar. Did not have first choice - buffalo, were "out" of coors light and food was not what is to be expected from an upscale restaurant, even though it was onlythe burger bar., Meat overdone, vegetables not fresh and crisp (onion was limp), sweet potato fries soggy (like they were previously ordered, cancelled and left in basket until next order, and reheated). Had heard lots of advertisement hyping this place, but would rather go to McDonalds (better quality and less expensive)

Went to The Barbed Rose for lunch. Sat on their "Burger Bar" and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Service and food was wonderful. We had 2 burgers, one buffalo and one beef. For the price, which is no more than what you would spend at whatabuger, were fantastic. They explained how everything was made in-house. Buns, mayo, mustard, house cured and smoked bacon, everything...I really enjoyed the experience and will be back very soon. Also, took a look at the inside, WOW, very nice. Would be perfect for a nice saturday night date night.
