Have only had breakfast, but it's very good. Eggs done correctly, substituted pancake for toast-wonderful! Coffee could be stronger, but all in all an okay choice.

Quick breakfast Sunday morning. The fifties theme might be fun for some, but it's narrowly focused on folks before our time. Food quality was good. Sausage and bacon were very good, hash browns crispy as they should be, and pancake was flavorful. Disappointed to find...More

Inexpensive, eclectic 50's decor, cute little 10 year old waitress who was probably the owner's daughter. Large portions, the pineapple shake was huge!! Outdoor seating available. Very quick service, large selection.

Barb's is 'unique'. It's an 'art deco' diner -- but the food is good, the service is good, the owner is gracious .. Visit; you'll be glad you did!
