Today's visit at Barnes was the first time I've eaten anything today. It did not disappoint. Everything was excellent. I think that I ate too much, to be honest. Very large portions. The server was really nice and kept my drink glasses full. I am looking forward to my next visit.

I'm basing this rating off of this particular visit. On Sundays, they have Oxtails if you get them before 1pm. I had the Oxtails over rice, Man N Cheese, and Collard Greens. It also comes with some sweet cornbread and a drink. I really enjoyed that meat falling off the bone. It's mad juicy and melts in your mouth like butter. The Mac and cheese was good, but those collards were phenomenal. I wish they gave you a bigger piece of cornbread because it's a little sweet and very desirable.

My take out order was great and that sweet tea is always on point ,Barnes has the best tea better than Carey Hilliard.

Really gotta work on that health department score. Scary stuff! If I’d seen that before I ordered online I would’ve definitely ordered somewhere else. Wanted a refund but decided to just take the food and avoid the hassle.BUT the food was good. Pork chops crispy just the way I like ‘em. Out of mashed potatoes so they gave us a baked potato instead. Pointed that out when arrived to pick up order which I appreciated very much. Didn’t want baked potato and was able to pick a different side and lady left baked potato in plate too. The sides were all tasty. Really liked the split roll too.

Food Service & Ambiance is SUPERB! Ms. Joyce, our waiter was such a WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, and PLEASANT DELIGHT. She brings JOY and is the BEST REPRESENTATIVE for customer care and satisfaction. She does her job very well and with a Spirit of Excellency. If you know that you'll come back to visit this establishment again, you will be likely compelled to ask for Ms. Joyce to be your Delightful Sunny Day on any kinduh day waiter. Barnes surely is blessed to have her on their staff team! She's a KEEPER. So do her very well and KEEP HER!Over & OutFranknKimm

We’ve had a prolonged stay at Memorial Medical and were looking for some home cooked food. We hit the jackpot here. Great food, the service was a hit and a miss. The manager is rude, but the other employees are so nice and helpful, especially Dee. Every time we’ve ordered, she’s there with a smile. Constantly cleaning and restocking. I don’t know her personally , but coming from a business owner, I’d be happy to have an employee with her attitude and work ethic.

If you're having a large gathering please ask for Ms. Nesbitt. She was the absolute best! We had a large demanding crowd of people and she handled us with the grace and care that was needed. I will say that Barnes should invest in large drink dispensers for the banquet hall, I truly believe it would make the dining experience that much more enjoyable. In these times where good staff are hard to find its important to come up with innovative ways that will assist those who are working diligently. Just my two cents. 🙂

We ordered Barnes Restaurant Catering for a southern food experience at work for some visitors from out of state and they did not disappoint! The BBQ ribs, fried chicken, BBQ beans and Mac & Cheese was incredible! We also ordered banana cream pudding dessert which was great too. It was packaged so well for us and delivered on time. Great experience. Will be ordering again.

Stopped at Barnes on impulse. Just moving here and never heard of it, but since the parking lot looked full, decided it couldn't be the worst. They were not terribly busy for a Friday lunch. Our server, Sharon was very friendly, informative, and efficient. She kept our drinks filled and needs met. The food came out hot and quick. The hushpuppies were the best I've ever had. The fish was great. The shrimp were very lightly battered but fresh. Collard greens had plenty of bacon flavor. Cole slaw was finely grated and not too sweet with pickle bits. Very good. Red rice was not flavorful. Will be back to try the bbq for sure.

It's no surprise that the parking lot is always full at this restaurant. The chicken fingers are amazing, and the hush puppies are probably the best I've ever had. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent price. Barnes is a great place for a quick bite, or a nice dinner. Highly recommend!
