This local landmark resembles a big red barn and is the traditional place for Triangle residents to celebrate special occasions and bring out-of-town guests for a special meal. The décor is homey, with quilts displayed throughout and a country store chock full of down home goodies. Steak lovers will revel in the tender, aged steaks served with all the trimmings, and seafood fans are in for a treat. After dinner, relax with a nightcap at the handsome Wild Turkey Lounge. While meals here are pricey, dining here is well worth it.
The Angus Barn is possibly the only thing I'll remember about my business trip to Raleigh. The food was excellent! I had the 7 oz. Filet and 9 oz. Lobster tail combination with potato, salad and bread for $52. The steak practically melted in my mouth and the lobster was equally delicious. The spinach salad was quite tasty with the warm poppy seed dressing. I recommend oysters on the half shell for an appetizer but stay away from the crab cakes; too much celery and pimento filler. As for the setting, it's about as intimate and upscale as you can get while still being inside of an actual barn. The Wild Turkey Bar had plenty of leather couches; the perfect place to have a cigar (from the walk-in humidor) and cocktail, and the gun collection in the lobby was quite impressive. I would reserve this experience for a very special event or a business trip if you can expense the meal. I would also recommend reservations, the place was packed on a Tuesdy night. Ask for Lance, he took great care of us!
