Angus Barn-Restaurant Review

My family had a great experience dining at Angus Barn the other evening. We had wonderful customer service and attention to detail for the birthday boy in our party.  Angus Barn also offers attention to details for the gluten free patron.  The restaurant offers a gluten free-dairy free menu with many tasty options.  Our server informed us that, the crew at Angus Barn takes allergies very seriously and that our steaks would be prepared on a separate grill and prep area to help prevent any cross contamination.  Our waiter went out of his way to meet our needs.  He brought us extra crocks of cheese for our celery so that the gluten free diners did not need to worry about those cracker crumbs from the others at our table ruining the cheese for us.  He was very mindful of the appropriate salad dressing options and we didn’t even need to remind him to “hold the croutons”!  I enjoyed the petite filet and baked sweet potato and my GF daughter order the baked potato and beef-vegetable kabob. Both were delicious.  At dessert time the complimentary pound cake was delivered to our table to celebrate the birthday and we were offered the wonderful gluten free option of ordering a GF chocolate-hazelnut/almond torte.  It is rare to be offered such a nice dessert when eating out, so of course we opted in and shared a piece of the torte.  I have posted a picture here for you to see.  Angus Barn has a casual welcoming atmosphere and has been serving guests since 1960.  The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side for every day dining, but well worth it for that special occasion. Reservations are suggested.  I would highly recommend you visiting and don’t forget to grab an apple (there are large bushels by the door) on your way out, after all apples are gluten free!

Glad you had a great experience there. I did not, but as with most places, I place that on the server and not the chef. She was very uneducated. That said, I would go back. Our reservations had gf notes, the chef knew we were gf, but our server lacked communication skills.

Glad you had a great experience there. I did not, but I honestly blame the server and her lack of communication skills. The notes were with our reservation, the chef knew, but she couldn't communicate clearly. That said, I would try it again.
