I've tried many items off the gigantic menu at Barney's, and it has been a mixed bag ranging from ok to good. Nothing I've tried has really been great, but it's not that kind of place. Enjoy some billiards or air hockey. Sourdough melt

Barney's Beanery dooms itself by having too many items on the menu - it's not ideal to boast about the 1,000 items available. No restaurant can do Mexican, American, fusion Japanese, 24-hour breakfast (and more!) well. Despite the huge

I go there for the chili. That's pretty much it. You can have it just about any way you like. Just meat, add beans, guac, sour cream, double up on that cheese. Deeelish. The potatoe skins are nicely done too. The place is a dive, but kind

I do like this place, however it really annoys me that the last two times I went they put a whole bunch of extra drinks on our tab, thinking that we wouldn't notice them. Last night the waitress added 3 Bud Lights on that we didn't have.

The waitress took too long in taking my order. Too long in having my food on the table. I paid with my check card. I kept it open for a next beer. Time to go. She lost my card. After 10 minutes she recovered it. No apologies, nothing.

The santa monica location is a good place to come and hang out with your friends..its very loud (the dj blasts the music) so you cant really hold a conversation without yelling..definately not an ideal place for a date..but the food is chill and the staff is friendly and it has an old school vibe to it on some nights...the food is ok but I always go for the drinks!

I really enjoyed Barneys Beanery, I have only been once but there is a cool vibe in there. They boast a very robust menu. Salads, burgers, mexican, all kinds of dishes to satisfy your hunger. I also hear the bar is a great place to hang out.

When you come to BB, you're mostly coming to just hang in James Dean's rumored hangout. It's kind of trashy and divey, and it's always crowded after 5pm, but if you go with the attitude of being low-key and casual, you can have a really good time. The gigantic menu is purely "guilty pleasures". You may regret it the next day, though.

Good food and good beer make this restaurant a good choice. The place tends to be a bit crowded, especially on the weekend, so plan on a wait. I've got a friend in Northern Cal. who periodically makes a special trip down here just to eat at this restaurant.

Little bit of everything from video games to pool to karaoke - Good crowd and not really a "meat market" but they DO have some very good looking women. It is just a casual and comfortable joint to grab some good "pub grub", drink a beer

The staff reeks with arrogance -- especially the obnoxious bouncer that night. C'mon folks it's just a beer joint! The sour attitude of this place kills any enjoyment you get from sampling the delicious beers. It just ain't worth it.

Every time I go to Barney's Beanery, I remember how much I disliked it the last time and wonder to myself why I thought I should go back. The place is always crowded, usually with too-drunk frat boys and straight couples hanging all over each other (despite its West Hollywood location, the clientele is overwhelmingly straight). Although it's kind of fun to laugh at the fashion victims in boob shirts (girls) or sideways baseball caps (guys), the frat-boy atmosphere soon wears thin and neither the menu nor the tap selection can make up for it.

PROS: good beer selection, friendly staff

Barney's Beanery has been in business for many year. It is a BLAST to go to... It is a Bar and Grille.. You never know what famous person you will run into there. Their food is great and reasonable especially for the neighborhood. The atmosphere is total KAOS which is amazing believe it or not. It moved here from No. Calif in the 20's, it was part of Route 66 and it has the history of Hollywood on it's walls. This is the place that Drew Carey lite up a stogie when the ban on smoking took place in West Hollywood. Heer is their web page addy: http://www.barneysbeanery.com/home.htm
