    The food is the same as the other Barnaby's outposts, with twists on traditional sandwiches & salads: pesto chicken sandwich with artichoke hearts, the turkey breast with cranberry mayo, and more. Read more

    Great burger place that features Homemade Meat Lasagna and Doctor Gales Meatloaf. I sampled a Texas size serving of the Lasagna that I could not finish. Nice little cafe🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Probably the fastest and friendliest service of all the Barnaby's locations. Very accommodating w kids. Lots of good options, but the Sausalito salad and chicken tinga quesadillas are among the best.

    The buffalo burger was fantastic! A little pricy at $15, but worth it. Make no mistake - it's huge and served with a mountain of fries.

    Try their classic Cobb salad! It has the proteins, the vegetables and there's some cheese to bind it all together makes this salad eat like a meal.

    This is the original Barnaby's - it's so adorable. If you eat here, I recommend the buffalo burger with feta cheese or the club sandwich. Their fries are delicious.

    No matter how you order your burger done, the grill cook will put a press on it to dry it out and serve it well done.
