Barnalce's BBQ and Fish Shack in Mamaroneck
Had dinner at Barnacles BBQ last night with 32 people from my dinner group and we were all very happy with the service, food and staff. Menu is very affordable and Owners, Michael and Coleman extended themselves and went out of their way for our group. The BBQ was excellent ! We tried the ribs, pulled pork, chicken, sausage, baked beans, mac and cheese, jalapeno popovers, fried zuchini. The food kept coming non-stop! They also gave us complimentary dessert and coffee. Again, I can't say enough- There is a lively bar with a terrific bartender. They are building a deck in the back of the restaurant that overlooks the water and a lounge on the second floor for private parties. Merriam, the decorator did a great job with the place and happend to be there. It was so nice of her to show me the lounge. This is a great place and I highly recommended it.
I tried them for the first time last week and I had some mixed reviews on it. We waited forever to be seated as the hostess was not at the desk for a really long time. The owner didn't see us to rescue us until after she came back and disappeared again. Our waitress was wonderful and sweet, but she neglected to tell us the specials. I might have ordered one had I heard about ti.
Ribs were great, but the brisket was dry and lacking in flavor. My husband had the chicken and was a little annoyed that they didn't cut it up and he was given a whole slab of half chicken to attack.
It seemed they were running out of things. They ran out of desserts and I think I got their last brisket order (I would have gladly let someone else have it and just eaten more ribs had I known it would be so dry). The corn pudding thing was cool and the sweet potato fries were pretty good.
I'd go back there, but I think I'll wait a couple of months so they can work their kinks out.
