Went there with friends, little dated but that is part of the charm of the place. You can tell it is a local favorite. Pizza was good, beer was cold. No table service

Went with a friend who grew up in South Bend between soccer games. It was great for a big group. Loved that the place obviously hasn't changed in decades! That being said I would prefer a more updated menu with more than just sandwiches and pizza with limited toppings. And pizza was good but I've had better.

We have family in South Bend and frequently visit. We have to go to Barnaby's every time we visit. They have the best pizza and an awesome atmosphere. I would highly recommend this pizza.

Used to live in the area back in the 70's. Was great to see that Barnaby's is still a very popular place. Had great pizza and cold beer.

Good pizza bad attitude. I stoped in for a pizza and was greeted by one of the worst order takers I have ever came into contact with. The person was very rude to me. The pizza I ordered had to be made twice, because the person who took my order put the order in wrong. The new pizza came and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants when we visit South Bend. The Pizza is special and the other meals also look spectacular. I keep saying I'm going to try something different, but the pizza is too amazing..

I absolutely love the pizza from the South Bend Barnaby's. Generous toppings, sourdough crust, good sauce. Unfortunately lately, the last few pizza's I've gotten have been burnt. And was told unless asked otherwise all pizzas were cooked 'well done'. Funny as I'd never had a "well done" one in the 20+ years I've been going there til recently.

Food choices limited to pizza or sandwiches, very loud atmosphere, different dining experience. You have to order at the front, we were not aware of this procedure so maybe some signs would be helpful for new customers.

This place has been here for at least 40 years. Great place to have thin crust pizza, and to have a beer on Sundays, and watch a game on tv, if that is your kinda thing. Pizza is good.

Hadn't had Barnaby's pizza since living in SB in the late 1980's, but fond memories carried me through until my most recent visit back to South Bend just a few days ago. Ordered take-out over the phone, and upon entering the building to pick up I was immediately taken back to my youth... It hadn't changed!! That could be a... More
