Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is family owned and operated by Tom and Karen Barbarie since June 2012. Their hands-on attention to detail brings area diners the finest in steak and seafood.
Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is not a corporate steakhouse. At any given time, customers can find an owner present overseeing every aspect of the business, from the 30-day dry-aging process of the meat, in house, to giving a welcoming handshake as customers walk in the door. With its extensive lunch, brunch, and dinner menu, as well as a pub menu and daily specials, Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is priced to suit any budget and satisfy any appetite.
Couples, families, business people, and travelers find their way to Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill, where customer satisfaction has been the owners’ goal since opening their doors five years ago this June. Local diners know they can pop in after a movie and grab a light bite, such as sliders or a sandwich from their pub menu.
Ms Barbarie says Sunday “Brunchers” come for the best brunch in town, from the food to the service to the complimentary cocktails.
The sophisticated ambience is welcoming the minute customers walk in the door. From the beautiful “green” horseshoe bar to the polished booths, glass-enclosed wine rack and adjacent meat locker with soft lighting, the vibe and energy make for a comfortable, stylish atmosphere.
Beyond the dining room is The Boardroom, available for any special occasion, including rehearsal dinners, corporate functions, showers, weddings, graduations, and holiday parties. The Boardroom accommodates up to 65 guests, with menus customized and personalized for each occasion. There is also a covered outdoor patio during the warmer months.
Once the guests are seated, they are in the care of well-trained servers. It is a personalized level of service, say the owners, that sets Barbarie’s Black Angus apart from other restaurants noting, “An incredible experience is priority number one.”
Black Angus Grill also offers “Angus Anywhere” delivery service, ideal for office business and party events; minimum $100 order for delivery/set up.
