Excellent pizza with melty-cheese and crisp crust ---- just right balance! Family friendly mid-day (I'm not sure if this changes with the crowd at night) and free parking available. Pub beverages and large TVs also.

This is an expensive place for dinner. The pizza while very good was not the style I remember as a young kid when visiting Barnaby's. Garlic bread is good.

Barnaby's is our favorite pizze in town! I am not a big fan of the booth layout and the darkness of the place - but I would go anywhere to eat this pizza! The staff is very friendly - to go orders are always correct and ready when they say they will be.

This family owned restaurant was a highlight of the trip. Very homey and happy. Modeled after German family style restaurants. Absolutely wonderful pizza. A large fed three hungry adults for only $19. I wish there was one in my hometown.

We came here for dinner and got 2 small pizzas. Mine was canadian bacon, pepperoni & bacon. My friend had a mushroom, sausage,Canadian bacon & fresh garlic. Both were outstanding and it took about 15 minutes. We came on a thursday and it wasn't too crowded, would definitely come here again

This near-downtown Barnaby's has been in business at the same location for more than forty years, with a slightly enlarged menu and the addition of a dozen or so TV screens. Obviously customers keep coming back for more, year and after year, good evidendce that Barnaby's is doing its pizza and burgers right.

This was our first visit to Barnaby's. They had a variety of selections. The veggie pizza was excellent. Crust thickness was average hand-tossed, sauce is a little sweet but not over-bearing. Pizza had generous toppings. You have to place your order at the counter and pick-up at the counter. Will definitely visit again when in town.

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of a co-worker. We didn't know that you have to find your own table and place your order at the front of the room. Once we figured out what to do it was simple. It was very busy on a Friday night, full of families and very noisy. It's best to get... More

Went there with friends, little dated but that is part of the charm of the place. You can tell it is a local favorite. Pizza was good, beer was cold. No table service

Went with a friend who grew up in South Bend between soccer games. It was great for a big group. Loved that the place obviously hasn't changed in decades! That being said I would prefer a more updated menu with more than just sandwiches and pizza with limited toppings. And pizza was good but I've had better.
