“Average for Baldwin”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I have been twice to Barski's when on vacation in Baldwin. It has a pleasant family atmosphere. When we visited on a Friday evening it was full of local people with their children and all seemed to be having a good time. The food is typical bar fare and our selections were tasty. Beer was good. Service was a little slow.

“A total surprise”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

You would never know that this little gem serves outstanding food. The food is freshly made so the kitchen can back up at times. The waitstaff does their best but at times service can be slow but the food is worth the wait. Don't let the biker bar feel fool you give it a chance.

“Average food in the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Expect a long wait for an average meal. Your options in Baldwin are quite limited. I suspect the other reviews are relative to location. This place would probably go out of business in a larger town with decent competition.

“Great Food - mediocre service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

First time stop while on vacation last weekend. Fantastic menu for a "bar" - and prices were good. Very interesting items listed that I did not expect in the middle of nowhere - try some of the Polish items. Perch and walleye were great. Service was spotty and it was early in the evening - the place filled up by the time we left. I highly recommend the food because of the unique menu. Great dive bar.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

If you have time to kill this would be the place. Incredibly slow service! Yes we visited during a busy time but didn't have to wait for a table. Waitress quickly took our order and got our drinks. That's the end of the good news. After waiting for over 15 minutes we overheard her telling someone at the adjacent table that the reason it was so slow the night before was that they had run out of food. Okay, that's possible. What's ironic is that my daughter for some reason had started the stop watch on her cell phone when we sat down so the times I'm relating are real. At 20 minutes we were getting antsy, as well as two tables that had been there before us. At 25 minutes one of the tables was served. At 30 minutes one of the others was served. We were hungry...and we began to pay attention to the grumbling around us. 35 minutes, 40 minutes and our waitress was nowhere to be seen. A table behind us with four guys who had come in about ten minutes after us somebody said "Where the f*** is our food?" Finally 45 minutes...and no food. I told my daughter if we aren't served in five minutes we're leaving. At 49 minutes and some seconds our food came. When I complained to the waitress, which I think is legitimate, she fired back that 45 minutes to a hour wait is normal and they have the best staff in the kitchen. We waited 49 minutes for two hamburgers and a snotty waitress. Never again!
