I've been to Barnacle's a number of times and I've had some great experiences and a couple bad ones, but overall, I think it's a good place to eat. I typically get some form of seafood, from crab legs to shrimp to other dishes. The times that I've been there have been during SpeedWeeks, so the service was as good as it could possibly be with the large numbers of people in town at that time.
We ate here a couple of times in May 2010. I had the Fish & Chips and later the Grouper & pasta. The food is OK. Not bad, but not exactly great either. The sauce on the pasta was very watery. The fish & chips were quite tasty. They have a very good soup & salad bar. The servers were very slow but pleasant. They seem to be somewhat understaffed.
It isn't a terrible place but it's nothing to write home ( or review) about either. It's just an average OK place to eat in my opinion. Go to Charlie Horse if you can get in, otherwise this place will suffice.
In spite of the construction happening at the front door, Barnacles was a great choice for dinner. The service was prompt, the portions were large, and the New England Clam Chowder was the best that I have ever tasted...ever.
We will be going back on our next trip to Ormond Beach.
Well, as I said it began great!!!! Then at the end it was just a mess.......a mess. The server just left us and at one point I timed the server to take note of the empty glass and the empty crab legs all over the table.... It took 14.7 minutes for the sweet tea to refill and when we walked away from the table the crab leg shells were still all over the place!!!! I cleaned it up the best that I could.... Speaking with the owner the next day.. he blamed it on vulgaraty.... please remember my children were there so there was NO NO NO vulgarity at all. He says he will look into the situation and I will update this as soon as he does...... as for now stay away unless you are a group of 10 or more where they are guaranteed a tip...Our trip came to 100.02 for a family of four but I ought the plastic light up mug with refills at a discount *****IF YOU CAN GET SERVICE***** Have a blessed day and I will Update ...Also hope you like parsley because that is spread all over the meal!!!!!!!
