Awful service from teenagers who don’t know what they’re doing. The escargots were dry and virtually impossible to remove from their shells and the steak had very little flavor.
Fairly disappointed for a once great restaurant.
The food and service at Aberdeen Barn NEVER disappoints. Everything on their menu is delicious, but the prime ribs is the absolute best. The friendliness and efficiency of the staff tops it off.
My wife and I visit several times per year, we live 1 1/2 hours away and it is always great food and the lady that waited on us was great. The food is some of the best that we have ever had and i would recommend it to anyone. Keep up the good work and happy holidays.
Excellent all around food service and ambiance
Birthday dinner for me and my wife. Prime rib is awesome
The place is legendary!
Out server, James, was terriffic. He made us feel very comfortable.
A favorite when visiting Charlottesville. Hope the piano bar returns!
Food and Service were wonderful. That says it all.
Good food, was a bit noisy. Service was good and definitely we weren't rushed to leave.
It was a wonderful experience as usual. Loved that they were respecting Covid protocols yet delivering an incredible customer experience.
Great food good service pricy but worth it we love this place one of if not the best restaurants in Charlottesville.
Excellent food - we devoured our steaks. Wonderful service.
Great as always! The food and service are always exemplary!
Many key items on the menu are gone due to Covid. Portions seem smaller on the steaks. Same prices. Great service
Food and service was fabulous as always!
The steak was good but dessert and sides were not up to par. A little expensive for its value. But nice atmosphere :)
There is a difference between old school and just plain old. The prime rib was fine cooked to temp and not overly fatty but that is about all I can say that was good. The creamed spinach was disgusting it had a gun like consistency and was flavored poorly. Building was old and poorly kept felt dusty and musty. For the prices they charge you would think it would have been a much better experience but sadly very average at best.
I have never had a problem with the food or service at Aberdeen Barn. Last night I got to take my boyfriend there for the first time, he fell in love with the food!!
Restaurant is pretty dark, like everyone else said hard to read the menu. Disappointed in the lukewarm prime rib, flavor was bland. The wine and service was good.
A bit pricey. My husband felt that he has had a better steak at Outback or at home. The char broiled steak tasted burnt.
Great food and great service! Our waiter was always a step ahead and we left completely satisfied!
Our waitress was amazing. Don’t remember her name though. :( food was spectacular. We went for our anniversary and couldn’t have had a better time. Thank you.
Waitress was phenomenal
Every thing about the experience was poor, including the outrageous prices for lousy food11
Aberdeen Barn is a classic steakhouse. Best, most attentive service in town. Food was well-prepared and came as ordered. One person in our party wanted their meat well done and another wanted theirs rare; both got it prepared exactly how they wanted it. Whenever we want a good meal in a cozy setting we go to Aberdeen Barn!
Overpriced! We have been going here for over 25 years and we may have just gone our last time. The food and service were excellent, but just too expensive. The cost of the prime rib was way too much to not include a salad.
We had a great dinner at Aberdeen Barn! The service was excellent. If you’re looking for a steakhouse ambience, this is the place!
Love the barn great food ,service great,just a nice romantic place to take the wife for special occasions.
It’s the best place for Prime Rib , I drive two hours to visit . Well worth every mile . And they know how to take care of there customers 5 stars
Excellent prime rib ! Never had one so tender. Excellent value for food and service
This was our first time eating at Aberdeen Barn. The ambiance and service was good. The chicken we ordered was overpriced for 1 piece of boneless chicken breast. We were also not informed that we would be charged $5 for an empty plate because we shared our meal.
Great service and food in a hometown atmosphere. Prime rib was perfect.
Staff did not appear to be short on people but the service was. Food was cold and very overpriced for the quality. A low light room could be considered romantic but not even being able to read the menu without using the light on your was a little to dim. Would not recommend because the overall dining experience did not come close to matching the price.
Your lighting stinks I am over 70 and need light to read and see. I had to use the candle at the table just to read the menu. It was hard for me to see some of my food because I need more light . Over all it was nice and the food was good . Just wished you had more light .
Great food, great service. I go here often for special occasions
We had an excellent time! A good, old school steakhouse. Definitely allow time to find parking or get an early reservation. Our waiter, Derek, was the best mix of attentive and hands-off. Can't wait to go again!
Prime rib, shrimp cocktail and scallops were spot on delicious
Always a wonderful time celebrating with friends at the barn:). The atmosphere is a really cool vibe. The food is always delicious. Always! I’ve never had a prime rib anywhere else that compares.
