I like the Barkley...The decor is old and outdated, but that's the whole charm of the place and why I go back. This is an old school bar where you can still get an honest pour in a drink for a decent price. I haven't eaten there in over a year, but the Sunday happy hour recently was good. They... More

When I first came here the menu was at least 10 pages, it has now been reduced to only 1 page. The food has always been good, only now you have far less to choose from. The bar drinks are well worth the price.

I've been coming here as long as I can remember. Even after moving out of State and come back every once and a while. I did notice a change this time as during the lunch hour, my usual time, there was a good lunch crowd. Now only a handful of customers mostly the regulars from before. The food was still... More

They have been around since I can remember and the food has always been consistant and dependable. The crowd is usually older. I take my parents here for special occasions and holidays. The wine selection is limited and the corkrage fee is steep. All in all it is a dependable neighborhood restaurant.

This was the meeting place for our lunch group for May 2015. The restaurant is an old establishment and has been around for years. In terms of size, it is relatively small. Unless you get here early, parking would be a problem since it is at the intersection of two major streets. The place is dark with little or no... More

White table clothes with a candlelight dinner. It was very romantic and worth every penny. Cheapest steak is $23, but it is still worth it if you have the extra money to spare.

I was surprised at the demographics of the crowd on a Saturday night. Most are mature, retirees or soon-to-be retired, and they all want to have a great time. The bar tenders know how to mix a good drink, and the food is well prepared and nice proportions. If there's any doubt, you can have faith that you can ask... More

This restaurant is in an area where there are few options, but fortunately it is there to turn to. A friendly atmosphere that reminds one of the setting of "Cheers". There are no Sams nor Dianes, but the food and drink are both acceptable....not great....but prepared nicely and served at a reasonable price. This is a good option if you... More

This place reminds me of what the Pasadena area must have been like in the 40's and 50's. The decor hasn't changed- low ceiling, dark and bar probably hasn't changed in 50 years. Staff and food were great- nothing special just a good all-around experience. It definitely has the feel of the corner bar/restaurant you'd find back in Chicago or... More

The food was very good, the service also wonderful; while we enjoyed ourselves, the building was dated and restrooms very run down. There were many seemingly regulars, and my husband remarked that he felt like we were in Bakersfield.The food really was delicous, but we were not prepared for old Christmas lights, fake flowers and 70's wood paneling.They held a...
