New Priority Pass restaurant at LAX: Barney’s Beanery

Priority Pass has been consistently expanding its network of restaurants to supplment the lounges you could traditionally access with the pass, and they have now added one at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX): Barney’s Beanery.

As shown in the screen shot above, Barney’s Beanery is airside at Terminal 2. I’m pretty excited about that because Delta uses that terminal and I’m scheduled to fly from into LAX in a couple of weeks on Delta. Hopefully, we won’t get stuck landing at T3 and I’ll get a chance to check this place out.

As is the case with other Priority Pass restaurants, cardholders will be entitled to a credit of $28 per person with their Priority Pass — the number of free guests depends on which credit card is issuing your membership. As Greg recently noted, the Priority Pass issued by the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Visa Infinite theoretically allows unlimited guests and authorized users also get free memberships — but please don’t try to buy a round for everyone at the bar and ruin it for the rest of us :-). Of course, the restaurant reserves the right to limit / restrict seating at busy times. You can read more about the details on this restaurant in your Priority Pass app or here online. Yelp reviews aren’t stellar, but free food is….free. Will they consider an infant a guest? Hopefully I’ll find out.

While Priority Pass recently removed the Alaska lounges at Seattle, I noted that I was happy to see the continued expansion of restaurants. This latest development continues on that path and those flying through LAX Terminal 2 will likely be happy to see it.

There are some easier ways to get around LAX via the Delta shuttle (right near Barney’s Beanery in T2) and the new enclosed walkway between TBIT and T4 and 5. I arrived TBIT, cleared immigration and connected to American in T5 but still had plenty of time for a non-rushed meal at that restaurant. I went back through immigration in T2 (no Delta flights apparently because I was second in line) and then made it to T5 while staying airside. Meal was good and the $28 meant it was free except for the tip. Well worth the trouble and a good excuse to learn some of the tricks about getting around LAX. Delta shuttle didn’t ask to see a boarding pass.

I’ve went to it twice so far. The food is good. The staff are extremely overworked. I saw several others using their priority pass cards. They had 2-4 servers for the entire restaurant. Both times they had a wait to be seated. If takes 45 min to an hour to get in and out, so if you have a tight connection I’d skip it. But they did not seem upset by the cards being used.

Did I miss something here? DoC posted this back on June 9th. Not sure why this is “news” almost two months later.

As others have said, the staff there are extremely overworked and service is very, very slow as a result. Still if you have a priority pass, you can’t argue with the price.

But I’d still urge people to reconsider: it currently (I passed through on July 25) has a C grade from the health department.
