My family enjoyed a big friendly lunch at this Barnaby's restaurant- meatloaf with potatoes, very tall club sandwich, very wide pesto chicken sandwich, very juicy cheeseburger. We also shared some macaroni and cheese as an appetizer- addictive!

Several friends and I stopped by for dinner and to visit. The food was good (I have eaten there before). Love sweet potato fries. Even the wine we had with dinner was not bad for a house wine (they don't have a big selection).
