A huge salad with grilled chicken, we shared a slice of carrot cake. An attentive Rex looked after us well. An easy diner, across from George's bar.

We love Barnaby's café. We've been many times. It has a great environment, local neighborhood feel, good service and great menu. I love the vegetarian options - particularly the veggie burgers. We go here quite often for brunch, lunch or dinner.

This restaurant is a typical local haunt with great services and very good food. Not far from downtown Houston, this is the original location for Barnaby's. Whether it was salad or burgers, all was tasty. Great find.

Still my favorite. Quirky, fun atmosphere with matching service. Friendly and attentive servers who genuinely want you to have a good time. Portion sizes are generous. Don't expect the glitz and glamour of the other locations; you won't find it. The charm of this older,...More
