Angus Barn

Restaurant

Quote:
The Angus Barn first opened in 1960. After a fire, the restaurant was rebuilt in 1965. The unique barn-like atmosphere beckons arrivals to Raleigh with beauty and world renowned style. Each entree is specially seasoned and prepared by master chefs and delivered in hearty portions. Service is the hallmark at the Angus Barn along with signature steak and prime rib. Also located in the restaurant is the Wild Turkey Lounge where one can enjoy great drinks. The recommendations of a most gracious staff will continue all the way through the meal to dessert--an absolute must!
