    Batman’s is our absolute go-to for celebrations. Enjoyed another incredible meal as we reminisced about the 35 years of marriage. A beautiful time.

    I alway enjoying dining here. It's so unique. The food is excellent especially the fried chicken. I always have to get that. Also exceptional is the apple walnut (or perhaps pecan??) salad and the coffee toffee pudding.

    The food never disappoints us. The maple apple salad was delicious in it's simplicity and plentiful. The fried chicken had a beautiful delicious crispy skin and was delicious. The scallops were the highlight of the dinner for me.

    Two well prepared entrees, a nice bottle of red wine, and a wonderful desert helped celebrate my proposal. And she said YES! The after dinner wine and 20 year port capped off the evening. Excellent restaurant.

    Baran's 2239 has become our "special night out" place to dine. The food is always great, with new tastes every time we go. This night, the maple apple salad and short rib ragu were outstanding. We always order the fried chicken is a standing order and is always delicious, hot, and tasty. Service is great, attentive but not overbearing. Although we tend to bring a bottle of wine, the wine list is also very good with covering a broad swath of tastes. We will keep going back!

    We LOVED everything about our first experience at Baran’s. From the delicious and original food to the cozy ambiance and the amazing service from the owners Jason and Tracy Baran. We started with the recommended and fresh out of the oven red onion and herb focaccia bread and a lovely glass of red wine. Followed by the best carpaccio I’ve ever tasted- an equally delicious red beet and Cara Cara orange salad and finished with seared scallops. We can’t wait to go back.

    We were seated at end where people stood or sat waiting for their table. A man with his back to me kept passing gas. Awful. Can they wait somewhere else? Food great, except one bit of beet and carrots was extra salty.
