Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of all-American fare and drinks at Barnacles. This deal is good at both the Duluth and Norcross locations. The Duluth location is open to guests aged 18 and older until 9 p.m. and 21 and older thereafter. This Groupon is not valid for specials.
Barnacles serves up a lunch and dinner menu of all-American soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees at both locations. Try a patty melt smothered in grilled onions and american cheese ($7.99) inside the family-friendly Norcross location, which boasts pool tables, arcade games, and an outdoor patio. The nosherie's new HD projector and flat-screen TVs help sports fans stay up-to-date on scores and new commercials while sharing an appetizer sampler of wings, potato skins, chicken tenders, and fried mozzarella ($11.49).
The Duluth location emits a club vibe with a VIP section ideal for oysters on the half-shell ($10.99 per dozen, raw or steamed), and DJs spin five nights a week, making room for trivia and karaoke nights. Keep ballad-singing energy levels up with grilled shrimp ($6.49) and the New Orleans combo of penne pasta with crawfish and andouille sausage ($14.99). Duluth’s full-service kitchen is open until 2:15 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday, allowing for late-night breakfasts of a belgian waffle ($7.59) and seafood scramble ($10.99), along with coffee-filled debates about which came first—the waffle or the egg.
The Gwinnett Daily Post and the From My Table blog have featured Barnacles. Yahoo! Locals give the Norcross location an average of 3.5 stars, and Citysearchers give the same location a 4.5-star average.
- Barnacles is establishing two distinct identities with its locations. The Norcross restaurant offers a family- friendly sports bar atmosphere where fans can kick back in a booth or at a table and watch the game on one of the flatscreen TVs or large projector screens scattered throughout the restaurant. The location has two bars, one operating during lunch and both up and running for dinner, along with a patio for outdoor dining. The Duluth location boasts a club-like atmosphere, complete with a VIP room, but still serves a full menu of food from open ’til close… – Deanna Allen, Gwinnett Daily Post
