A very good breakfast place. Big servings. Chicken fried steak with over easy eggs? Why not! Great bacon. Skilled waitstaff. The grits should be firmer -- they're soupy!. I wish that they warmed the plates for breakfast.

Several choice were really good, burgers, salads. and the salmon. The wait staff was very friendly and knowlegeable about the food. Nice atmosphere and laid back vibe, nice place to visit.

Barnaby's has the best brownie ever!! I ate with ice cream and it was definitely the best dessert I had in Houston. The hamburgers, salads and meals are also veeery good!

The Asian chicken salad has very little chicken and the dressing is squirted very thick on top and not mixed in. It is very thick and over powering. This used to be much better. Maybe because I usually go to W Gray or Fairview.

The food is always fresh, healthy, organic and gluten free choices. I love the buffalo burger, spicy fried won tongs, sweet potato fries. They have great salads, fresh squeezed lemonade, fresh baked & chocolate chip cookies. The staff is great and service is always great!

Came here for breakfast around 10:30 and even though there was a wait we still made it for their breakfast menu. The waiting and seating area outside welcomes dogs and there were many with their humans. The breakfast menu has many options and many healthy...More

We visited for dinner, probably a better lunch spot. Just had drinks and an appetizer, dinner items looked so so. Though i did see a scrumptious chopped salad delivered nearby! Spinach Artichoke Dip and La Crema .... good choice!
