Barnacle Ben's has wonderful food, but the decor isn't that great. The service staff is friendly and helpful. You never feel rushed. The prices are reasonable.

I like this place. The food is nothing spectacular, but the service is always good and the atmosphere is very friendly. I like their soups, and also their desserts.

We went in on a Monday night at 5pm and started with the clams casino app which for $8, you got 6 very small clams that were gritty and hidden by a large slice of bacon. I ordered the Tuna steak, It was to a bit rare to my liking and they did cook it a little more for me however it was just OK. I found it to be very stringy and fishy tasting, I had to drown it in lemon, the side of green beans and carrots were good the baked potato was petrified. My Mom ordered the flounder stuffed with crab. The flounder was like leather on the outside and had fish bones in the flounder the filling was not that good, again fishy and the baked potato- well lets just say it was more dried out then mine( if that could be possible). We did mention it to the waitress who just said something like" oh really" and didn't even offer another. So yes I thought the service was poor as well- we waited over 20 mins for our meals and we seriously were the only patrons in there. I can sometimes understand sacrificing a great meal for ambiance but you get neither here.The picture of Mona Lisa coming out of the sea with a lobster was a nice touch- NOT. The restaurant is clean and has a nautical theme but that's about all I can say. Yes that you can view the menu on-line but beware it is slightly different and priced much lower then the actual menu- plan on spending $3-$4 more on your choices. I go out to dinner about twice a week to high end restaurants and I don't mind paying for a good meal, trust me your not getting that here.- Sorry Barnacle Bens you just don't cut it.

Barnacle Ben's is the place to go if you are looking for really great seafood for reasonable prices. They have many different dishes such as a delicious Honey Mustard Butterfly Shrimp entree and a Crab Wonton appetizer. rather than a traditional childrens menu, they offer many of their main entrees at half price for children. This is great for those adults who don't want any leftovers, too.
