Sure, it can get noisy, and the decor is early American barn. But the wait staff is out to spoil you, and the steaks, aged in-house and grilled to order over live coals, are first-rate. Options range from a 7-ounce bacon-wrapped petite filet to a whopping 24-ounce T-bone, with all the popular cuts in between. Non-beefeater options include cold water lobster, grilled fish, tender pork spare ribs with a dark spicy sauce, rack of lamb and surf 'n' turf combinations. Crab cakes and oysters are among the best in town, and prime dessert choices include creme brulee, pecan pie and blackberry cobbler.
barn has passed its heydey. food is too expensive, quality is ok but not super.
i think i ve made my last visit there.
My wife and I moved here five years ago from Chicago, home of the best prime rib in America. We heard so much about Angus Barn, we finally decided to go on my birthday. To say I was disappointed was an understatement. The lobby and shops are exquisitely decorated. However, the dining room resembled an old barbeque with tables crammed in on top of each other with hardly room to move. The relish tray at the table was nice – homemade wafers, crocks of soft cheese, and marinated vegetables. However, the menu was shocking. These were prices of Lawry’s in downtown Chicago, not some little barn restaurant (although the Chateaubriand was correct along with fresh lobster and king crab). I’ve eaten prime rib at restaurants all around Chicago, Indiana, and Michigan. Prices usually range from 10 and up, starting with petite cuts. My regular cut, priced at 40 dollars seemed a bit steep. I received a big burnt baked potato and my “medium” beef (hot pink in the middle) was well done and very tough. While our waiter was pleasant, I was not impressed with what we came for, very tender prime rib. I refused to send it back because this was my birthday. After the cramped corner, the overdone food, and the long wait, I was not impressed with Angus Barn and doubt we shall be back. I cannot justify giving it beyond two stars out of five. Raleigh has many fine restaurants and this was not one them.
