Horrible experience right off the bat. I reserved the mezzanine for a party of 35 to find out they double booked the spot. I was informed that we could share the spot but the existing party was NOT having it and coughed up an attitude. I was told the existing party would be there til 12 but they ended up squatting all night. Management did not do a damn thing and I did not want to ruin my birthday so i let it slide. We made the most of it by spreading out over 6 tables but still, the service was horrible and the crowd was rude.

If you decide to get a large party together in Santa Monica, go to Yankee or Ma'kai. I'm sure they wouldn't screw you over like Barney's did to me!

I enjoy their food here. Lots of mouth watering flavor and I like the super fast way they get the food out to you, without feeling hurried. More accurately, I think I should say that the food comes out in successions, at the perfect timing.

We waited for an hour to get into this place, I will say it was on a Friday night and that normally would have been just fine, if we had been told that was going to be the wait. She informed us when we got there that the wait would only be

Barney's is my new neighborhood bar...What's not to like about this place. A great selection of food and beer (the burgers and onion rings are my fav.) combined with a laid-back atmosphere. Great Happy Hour specials.

Pros: An unending menu and Stella on tap

Cons: Sometimes a little wait - but for good reason

If you are a sports enthusiast, then this is the place to eat or grab beers. There are flat screen TV everywhere you look, so you can?t miss a second of the game. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees from open to close. Most

I had high hopes for Barney?s. Their pub style decor with licenses plates and hub caps gave the restaurant a very cool vibe, and their outdoor patio next to the Promenade is perfect for people-watching. Plus there?s the newspaper menu;

Barney's is not gourmet food. It is not even the Barney's where Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin hung out. \r
It is a busy sports bar on the promenade. But the food is edible, the helpings are generous, and it's reasonable. It's a good place

To me, the best place to sit is on the patio-- you can do major people watching from there. Be prepared to choose from a very large menu. Good food, good location, very good times.

Barney's is a great spot on the Promenade for it's extensive, affordable menu and wide selection of beers on tap.

There are literally hundreds of dishes to choose from and an amazing jukebox as well which makes the ambiance even better.

The patio outside is a great place to people-watch in warm weather. Not to be missed!

A while back we enjoyed a very nice meal with good service and an all around good experience. Today was anything but! The waitress didn't even know how to answer questions about the menu and then argued about what was supposed to be on

Pros: Convenient, if you are shopping on the Promenade

Cons: It ain't worth the time or trouble!

Barney's has a great beer and food selection but unfortunately the service is absolutely terrible. I almost refuse to go here anymore because of how terrible it is. The bathrooms are almost unbearably filthy with toilet paper and toilet seat covers all over the place. I haven't been in there once without complaining to a manager about it. Apparently it's not getting through.

If you have the time to sit and wait and get a good enough seat on the patio to people watch, then it's not so bad. Food is pretty good and the tables are fun to look at with magazine cutouts of famous people all over the place.

I'm never going back. Barney's used to be the best bar in Santa Monica. Then they got rid of all their good staff. Ryan was a mainstay at that place since it opened. I don't think Lisa works there anymore either. And I heard Jeff was

Pros: Lots of TV's (mostly HD), every game on, big Steelers crowd, Brian the bartender

Cons: food was so-so, hard to get a seat if you're not there early

Barney's is a fun spot if you are looking to grab a beer and hang out. The bartenders are really nice people and even though they usually have a large crowd to look after they are extremely attentive. My only complaint is that it is often

I'm originally from the Midwest and now live close to the Promenade, and this is easily the best place around the area that we frequent quite a bit. Clubs and the like are fun from time to time, but Barney's is never a bad choice. How

One of the best places in town to watch a game, what with all the tv monitors and the fact that they always have many games on at once. The food, as at the original West Hollywood location, generally is just okay but the prices are

Pros: Great sports bar, excellent location

Barney's beanery has great drinks and a great menu. You'll enjoy the selection of beers, and food for everyone. The decor is typical bar-eclectic--motorcycles on display, bathrooms stalls decorated with old magazine ads. The decor is cliche, but you'll enjoy the visit

The bar scene is pretty fun and relaxed here, especially if you can get a table on the patio. However, every time I come here the waitresses are switching shifts, no matter what time of day, and I always get two different waitresses.

Pros: attractive young n friendly crowd, big long bar, the Kamikazes

Cons: bathrooms not checked on a regular basis, their curdled milk

This place is incredible!!! The food is great and a good value - nothing like pigs in a blanket with eggs for sub $7 bucks. Then you have the beer selection, it is one of the greats in LA. Lastly, you have the entertainment factor - I
