A word from Old Crow Smokehouse
Now in the burbs great food, atmosphere, friends.
See all photos >
We are always excited to see a new
BBQ restaurant in the suburbs. We are familiar with Austin Texas BBQ so thus restaurant/sports bar looked promising. We ordered the brisket and pulled pork. In my opinion, the brisket was cut a little too think, rather dry and tough, not much flavor, and too salty. The pulled pork, however, was very moist and flavorful with a nice smoky flavor. The waitress was great, checking in frequently. The atmosphere was good, but the restaurant could use some additional regular height tables and chairs, as all but one were bar height, making it difficult for some people to climb. My wife has knee issues and has trouble with tall tables. All in all, the restaurant was OK but not memorable."

Our party of four got the combo
platter which included pulled pork, a rack of ribs, a whole beer can chicken, a couple sausage links, four large pieces of brisket and several sides. All in all the food was good and the value was exceptional - the chicken was some of the most moist we'd ever had - probably the best part of the meal. Brisket and sausages were also very good. Pulled pork was a little dry and we found the ribs to be dry and salty - but otherwise a very good deal. Hot sauce could be hotter. Service was prompt and friendly. Great beer and bourbon selections and even a respectable wine list - not expected in a Texas style BBQ joint. The place is a little off the beaten path in Schaumburg but give it a try. Fun atmosphere."

New bar/ food spot in the old John
Barleycorn site in Schaumburg. Drink selection had some intriguing mixed drinks as well as a nice selection of beers on tap and bottled as well as wine. Mixed drinks had some emphasis on bourbons which was a nice change and went well with BBQ. We had smoked brisket which was delicious, and pulled pork tacos with coleslaw relish which was good. Food served was casual as expected at a bar. Server was attentive. Lots of natural light from large windows and the room was large and open with overall barnwood theme. Country band was to play in this first floor room later but we could not stay this time. Will try that next time."

Their sever Britney is awesome,
super personality, on top of her game. Best server we have had in a long time and we eat out on the burbs rather often."

Walking into this place is like
walking into an old west saloon ... Surrounded by TVs. Great BBQ, cold beer, good looking servers, and you get to throw your peanuts on the floor. Truly a great restaurant for dinner, and an even better country bar with live music at night. "

This smokehouse is awesome!!! The
pulled pork and burnt ends were delicious "
Dined on 4/25/2014
The brisket was delicious. The
sides of green beans and cole slaw was very average. Chef Scruggs came by the table to check on us (and others). The personal service was very nice."

Went here for dinner with my
boyfriend and another couple... I instantly loved the atmosphere/decor. I wish I remember our waitress's name, she was great! The food was delicious, and the drinks were great. I would definitely go back! I've already recommended the place to a few friends. Great new place!"

Absolutely delicious BBG. Tried
all the sauces and all were great. Kinda noisy is the only drawback."

I would love to but was crushed to
learn via Facebook Monday they are now longer a bar and restaurant - they will only be open for party's and special events."

This is my 2nd time at the
Father's Day brunch. I was very disappointed this year. The buffet items were not kept up, many were empty or had very little left and many items were not kept hot. Last year I did not experience these problems. The dessert table was very disappointing, not much there at all. Their advertising of the event mentioned "give-a-ways" and other surprises, there were none and the only surprise was that the food was not up to their normal standards, I enjoy this establishment , but will probably not attend their "Special Days" again, especially with the inflated prices charged for my party of 8. The service was OK, At least they did their job."

This place is never crowded.
Friday night 6:30 and no one there???"
Dined on 6/14/2013
Value oriented brunch. relatively
low selection. Warming dishes not refreshed often enough. Good deals on brunch type beverages,"

Went here for Admins Professional
day. I don't think people know it is open for lunch. It was very good."

If you want a suburban mall bar
that serves good hamburgers, this is fine. If you want anything else, go somewhere else."

Let me start out by saying The
Jalapeno Bacon Burger was fantastic, it has just enough heat to it. Had family in from Minnesota that were staying near by, choose John Barleycorn for the food, Had I know that the noise level was so high you could barely hear yourself talk, I wouldn't have choosen this restuarant for a family gathering with that said we were greated with a smile, the food was fantastic, service was ok and we did have a good time. I would recommend John Barleycorn based on the food alone."

We had enjoyable dinner, and
celebration of a birthday."

Out for a bachelor party with the
guys, Seated right away, lots of different beers, service was good, a good group of large breasts and low cut tops, lots of room for our table, food was good and TV's everywhere for sports. All in all a good time."
Dined on 4/27/2013
I went to barleycorn for my
birthday with a big group of friends. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. She even separated the checks without me asking her to. It was very convenient and we really appreciated it! I had a great night."
Dined on 4/27/2013
This was my first time at the
restaurant. We ate in the bar area. Good Lunch place for business people. The Chopped Salad was very good. Management was testing new summer soups, and gave us a complementary free cup of the french onion. it was very good. Manager and Staff very focused on our needs. I would go there again."
Dined on 4/16/2013
We went to John Barleycorn for a
Bachelorette Party and we all had a good time. We started off with a cocktail downstairs and our server was very nice and attentive. We took the party upstairs because the music was hoppin and much to our surprise, it was almost dead up there at 10:45. We waited it out and danced a little hoping that others would join in. It took about an hour to really get a good crowd, but once they did, we all had a great time, especially the bride! :)If I ever go back, it will be much later in the evening so there is a good crowd."

Went there for Sunday brunch even
though I had been there once before for lunch and did not have a great experience due to POOR service. This happened shortly after you opened and although we go out for dinner 4 nights a week we never returned. When one of the people in our party on Sunday suggested to go back I had reservations because of our past experience but thought that maybe the service issues had been addressed in the past couple of years but no, the problem still exists. We waited 9 minutes for a server to even come to the table and she was not even busy. Food was, for the most part, tasty and it is a very good value although selections were quite limited. I am a past restaurant manager and you have serious problems."
Dined on 4/7/2013
Food was good. Prices were
reasonable. Beer selection was good. Service was attentive, but regular coke was served rather than diet and one meal was completely left off the order. We were a group of 9...large for one waitress but not unmanageable! Despite the mixups, we would return."

Your noise selection goes from
quiet to energetic. I would say "too loud" if the selection was given. I was there for a business dinner and the band music in the bar made it hard to hear at the dinner tables. Wish the bar or the dinner tables were more closed off. If I wanted to hear the band, I would have gone to the bar."
Dined on 3/21/2013
The food was a little slow coming
out of the kitchen for those of us who ordered the corned beef and cabbage dinner. Others in our group had the buffet - so all is well."
Dined on 3/16/2013
Service staff outstanding. Too
loud. Throughout the night, you could hear someone speaking with a microphone, VERY distracting and disruptive to table conversation. Food ok. Steamed Vegetables while seasoned good, the carrots were barely cooked. Very hard. The squash and zucchini was over cooked. Prices good for groups."
Dined on 3/12/2013
This is a good old fashioned
brunch. Standard lunch/breakfast food in a comfortable setting. There was enough of a crowd to keep the food turnover high enough so that nothing sat in the warming dishes too long. The omelets were quick and made to order. The only area that may have lacked a little was the dessert table but that didn't matter to us as we were pretty full by the time we finished sampling the other areas."
Dined on 3/10/2013
Very impressed by the food here!
Came here with other family members for the first time and were not disappointed. Waitress was wonderful and service was great. The appetizer was delicious (sample platter was huge)and the barbecue baby back ribs were excellent. The prices were very reasonable and will be coming back."
Dined on 3/2/2013
Our food was mediocre at best. My
fish had the texture of chicken and required a steak knife to cut. My boyfriend's steak was overcooked. Overall, I thought this place was VERY overpriced for the quality of food we received."
Dined on 3/2/2013
If you are looking for a good fish
fry in the area, Barleycorn is the place to go. All you can eat for $13!"
Dined on 3/1/2013
Service was very slow. I was with
a group so that may be why it took so long for the food, however, it seemed like it took forever for the menus and drink orders. It also was too loud. I don't usually complain abut the noise but I don't like to yell at someone during dinner to be heard. Food and martinis were great!"
Dined on 2/28/2013
Reserved for brunch. No one else
dining. No longer do brunch on Sat. Website showed Saturday. Beef tenderloin sliders. Grizzly. Couldn't chew thru the few pieces of meat there were."
Dined on 2/23/2013
Great Valentines special. Filet
was very tasty as was the potato soup and cheesecake. All for $15 so a great deal too!"
Dined on 2/16/2013
Had a great time. They were very
accomodating and high customer service oriented."
Dined on 2/14/2013
This was a good example of a
sports-themed (lots of TVs with different sports channels showing) bar/restaurant. If it had been more crowded it would have been very noisy, since it is a big dining room with mostly hard surfaces. Nice long beer menu, a something for everyone food menu, with fair pricing. The baby back ribs were nicely done-crispy outside, tender meat and a tending-to-the-sweet side sauce. The Reuben sandwich was well-stuffed with lean corned beef and the salads were fresh. Service was prompt without being pushy. The location is off the beaten track, so they won't get much business from drive-bys, but it is well worth considering among the casual dining choices in the Woodfield area."

Great food and fantastic staff. We
have two young children and it's a great place where we can enjoy a nice meal with the children."

Food was average. Would go back
for burgers, but not anything else."
Dined on 1/28/2013
Brunch is very crowded and
honestly the food is just so-so - a bit bland and the buffets are a bit sloppy."
Dined on 11/4/2012
Service was excellent. Manager
came to check on the tables. Always a nice touch."

Our large group of 14 had a fun
dinner at John Barleycorn in Schaumburg. The adults enjoyed the beers and wine, and the 8 children, aged 3 to 12, were all able to find something on the menu to please them. For a Sunday evening, we had spacious seating and plenty of room for the parents to move back and forth to tend to their children at the opposite end of the table. The servings were generous and the ladies were able to go home with leftovers. It is always difficult for us to find a place that is comfortable and laid-back for us with this many children. John Barleycorn-Schaumburg is now on our list for our group's get-togethers!"
