Updating my review because Joe did an amazing job on my hair. I had a Job Interview and the first thing the boss had noticed was my hair! I've been going for about 9-10 years and not every time did i have a great cut but everyone has their bad days. If you ever do stop in, you definitely want to give one of their many talented barbers a try, as the owner hires only the best in Newark. Joe in my honest opinion is the best barber in that shop.read more

Classy, old-school barbers who still know how to use scissorsand a blade. A true neighborhood gem in the Ironbound.

Ferry Barber shop has always taken care of me. Until Covid id just walk in and every barber was great for a cut, a beard trim, or even a shave. I will continue getting my hair cut only here.

This was my first time and I have to say I had a pleasant experience. Joe was my barber and he understood exactly what haircut I was looking for right away. I will go back with no hesitation.If you are looking for a barbershop in the ironbound area, dont look further ! And if hes not available you can also decide to go with his other staff which are all really good !read more

I am new to the area and searched for a barber shop in the area and came across a dozen or so. I called about half of them and I spoke with Joe who said to come on in for a cut. He was booked solid and about to take his lunch but instead he gave me one of the best cuts I ever got. I felt terrible and saw he was working his tail off but we had a great conversation and the whole experience was a breath of fresh air. Thank you again Joe for making me feel like Ive been coming to you for the last 45 years and not a first time walk-in.Its a no brainer people. Save yourself the time. I did the work and read all the reviews and compared places. This is where you want to go.To avoid being that guy, like me and messing up another mans lunch, simply go online and book time with Joe if you want him to cut your hair specifically.read more

Highly recommended! Today was my first time visiting the Ferry Barber Shop after my regular barber had retired. The appointment was easily made via their online portal and when I arrived, they were on-time getting me in the chair and I found the place very clean and there was just an awesome vibe. My appointment was with Joe, who turned out to be a great guy as we discussed growing up in Newark and about our families and friends.When time came for the haircut, I could not be any more pleased. He cut and styled my hair exactly as I wanted.I am a customer for life...Thanks Joeread more

Today was my first day trying this barber shop, and it was a great experience. Very professional haircut, and I loved the warm shaving cream and fresh razors. Reminded me of the barber shops from my childhood; the way barber shops should be. My haircut came out great, and I started getting compliments on my haircut in less than five minutes from people. I will definitely be going back to this barber shop, and I highly recommend you try them. Prices are very reasonable, and the barbers are very friendly. So glad that I found this store. Simply a great experience.read more

The quintessential neighborhood barber shop! Great, communal atmosphere due to a clientele that consists mostly of people who live in the neighborhood. Open almost all day with lots of appointment slots for those coming back from NYC for work. Not to mention the quality of the haircuts themselves, 10/10 experience all around!read more

This my first time going to that barbershop the barber I got he moves fast but it seems he was moving too fast to cut my hair to get me out of the chair because one of his regular client or friend was there waiting so these barbers just want cut your hair fast to get you out and take your money don't even care to ask if you are satisfied with your haircut or notread more

The Ferry Barber Shop seamlessly blends the art of traditional, skillful haircuts with an ambiance steeped in old-world Portuguese charm, conveniently located just steps away from the train station. However, it's important to mention that they exclusively accept cash payments, and do not provide alternatives such as card transactions or utilize services like Zelle. On the flip side, they do offer an on-site ATM, although it's worth noting that it comes with a higher fee for withdrawals.read more

This barbershop was truly an amazing experience! From the moment I stepped through the door, I could tell this was no ordinary place. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, with a perfect blend of old-school charm and modern flair. The owner, Joe, greeted me with a genuine smile and made me feel right at home. His skill as a barber is unparalleled - he listened closely to my preferences and delivered a haircut that exceeded all my expectations. The attention to detail and care he puts into his work is truly remarkable. I left feeling refreshed, confident, and grateful to have discovered this hidden gem of a barbershop. I highly recommend Joe's barbershop to anyone looking for an exceptional grooming experience.- Misael Cruzread more
