Celebrated 4th Anniversary. Excellent food & service as always. Come to Santa Ynez once a year & now always go here
Food was outstanding and service was very good.
Great food and service. Steaks are amazing!
Brothers is one of my two favorite restaurants in northern Santa Barbara County. I've been eating at their restaurant for decades and followed them from the Storybook Inn in Solvang to Mattei's Tavern in Los Olivos to their newer location at the Red Barn in Santa Ynez. Thanks to these two great chefs and their friendly, accommodating staff, for wonderful food and service. Will definitely visit again in the future.
Sat in the bar on a busy Saturday night. Honored our reservation time and we enjoyed a really good prime rib dinner. Soup and salad good too. Would definitely go back.
Came here while in Los Olivos. Great value for AMAZING food. The stake my boyfriend and I was amazing. I personally LOVED the mashed potatoes.
It is an excellent place with a very good food
Very good service
An amazing experience - delicious food, good wines and perfect surroundings. Thank you.
Great food and excellent service overall great experience in dining.Great finish after wine tasting to finish off a great day.
This is a wonderful place to dine especially with friends. The food and service are always great
Best prime rib in Santa Barbara County, amazing taste
First, we have never had a bad meal here or even a minor complaint. The Brothers know how to make excellent food! This trip to the restaurant - 45 minutes from home near Pismo Beach - was with two other couples to celebrate my birthday. I said "fabulous Prime Rib" and they said "we're in!".
And, as always, it was fabulous. So tender and tasty, you wonder how they do it. There are now four more addicts, vying for those tables, so be sure to have reservations. We were there on a Monday evening, no holiday, at 5pm and within an hour all the tables were full. Seriously, make that reservation and go. You will not be disappointed.
My gf and I come to the area a couple of times of year from San Diego and decided to not go to our usual spot for our second night in town. The reputation is warranted. Wonderful dinner, lamb and prime rib were beautifully cooked, bonus menu special of fried oysters, a personal favorite, did not disappoint. The best part was the service . When our reservation table landed us in the back corner by a drafty door, chilling my gf, we asked for an adjustment, and they did what they could, putting us at a lovely high top near the bar. This place is all about making their patrons happy.... and delightfully full. Can’t wait for our next visit.
This is a nice restaurant in a quiet beautiful town. When we arrived we were immediately greeted and seated. The wine selection was great. I had their sea bass and my wife the prime steak. Everything was delicious. I will definitely be coming back when I’m I town.
First class and top drawer in every way. The food and service is the best in the Valley
Chicken Sandwich and Brothers Burger were outstanding, service was excellent
Excellent as usual!
I have been to this restaurant a number of times and had a really excellent meal and service. Once I went back two nights in a row! But this visit, on a Thursday night at 7pm was not that great. We were put at a table for two in the very back up against the wall in the corner. The noise level in this corner was very loud because i think the main room sounds echoed over there. The wall was thumping from time to time because some task they were apparently doing in the kitchen on the other side. The table was very "long" for two people so I had to yell to be heard. Ribeye was only adequate even though it was $45. Disappointed.
Love this restaurant. Great food and ambiance. A favorite among locals. My only negative is the noise level on a busy night can make conversation challenging.
Living in New York, I have access to some of the best steak houses around… But the lamb chops at Brothers we’re the best I have ever had! All the food came out hot and was fantastic… My husband had the fish that he said was excellent as was the pork chop. All very fresh ingredients. The service was spot on. The atmosphere was more casual than I thought it might be given the prices, but I would definitely recommend Brother’s
We love coming here ! Great food and Diane our server was amazing.
Always great and this time for four Saturday night dinner lived up to previous visits and then some. Dishes included prime rib, scallops special and chicken. Everyone was delighted with their meal and a shared Caesar was delicious. The dessert entrees could be upgraded or expanded a bit if I had to come up with something to pick at. We'll be back.
Very surprised when we walked in. Nicer than what we expected because of the name barn. Excellent service and food. Prime rib better than Lawrys in Los Angeles. Husband had the pork chop and he said it was delicious.
Amazing Rib eye- unbelievable potatoes augratin, great staff, truly everything we wanted and then some. So good in fact, we went back the next night for the same meal!
Very good food. I had the Filet and my wife had the Scallops special. Nice place in the heart of Santa Ynez. Andrea was very attentive and pleasant, even with having a fair number of tables to look after. Definitely worth a visit.
We went there for our anniversary and the food was delicious and the service was spot on. We both had the prime rib which is phenomenal!
Another fantastic meal and evening at The Brother's Red Barn, this time for our 44th anniversary. Diane took such good care of us. We dined with good friends, all starting with delicious hearts of romaine salad ( split them, they are huge ), my husband and I having pork chops ( amazing as always! ), our friends loving their rib eye steak, and trout.
We are so fortunate to have this jewel of a restaurant in our Valley! Thank you for such a special evening!
This place is a favorite of mine. The food is amazing and the staff is just phenomenal, would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Brothers Prime Rib was as always outstanding. This was our third time at this restaurant and we are never dissapointed
Outstanding food, if you're into wine do take your own bottle and pay the $20 corkage which is high for the S.Y. Valley, but worth it when you see the bottle prices on the wine list, and split a salad as they are easily enough for two people and have a great meal.
The 12oz Prime Rib was the best I’ve ever had.
After sharing the pear/walnut green salad, we had prime rib and salmon dishes and both were outstanding with popping flavors and freshness second to none. Also had a bottle of Lucas and Lewellen Malbec wine, an excellent compliment to the meal. Finished off with a creme brulee, excellent friendly wait service from Jim. Our first dinner experience here could not have been any better, thank you.
Food was outstanding!!!!!!! There were accommodating when I called and said we would be late due to traffic!
We were traveling home and thought it would be a great stop, which it was! I gave the overall 4 stars instead of 5 because we received our salad after our entree. No big deal but a bit problematic.
Food was excellent and server was friendly and professional. Was a tad annoyed that we were sat next to the kitchen entrance. They did move us about 5 minutes later but we were told the window table we preferred was reserved for parties of 3 or 4 (We were 2). Sure enough within 10 minutes a party of 2 was seated there.
Best scallops I ever had. The only thing wrong was I had hoped they had read that it was my husbands birthday when I booked the reservation. No birthday wishes (and I find it awkward to say it in front of my husband.
Taco Thursday at The Red Barn is the best! You get 3 large fillet mignonette tacos for $15 and they are absolutely delicious.
The Red Barn was recommended to us and we did a quick 2 day trip to the valley for a birthday celebration. The restaurant exceeded my already high expectations. I can not wait to dine there again.
We had a reservation and when we showed we were immediately sat. The waitress was excellent as was the assisting staff. Our glasses were full and the food was excellent. My steak melted in my mouth, was prepared as I requested.
We definitely will be returning when we visit the area
