    We were happily surprised when we saw a Monday pre-fixe menu. I loved the raviolini and my friends really enjoyed the bash burger and fried chicken. The chocolate cake was way better than the banana creme pies, which usually is one of my favorite desserts but I guess not at B&B. I thought the service was great, we were not rushed. We will be back...on a weekday.

    Great, great food. Only dumb thing about this place is their signature wine by the barrel. It makes no sense to pay more for a carafe of this $50 than bottles on the menu.

    I am a big fan of Burger and Barrel and frequent quite regularly. However the food was a little off on my last visit. The onion rings were served cold and the burger wasn't up to it's usual juicy standards. Service was okay, but definitely not what I would call attentive. I will need to go again to find out if it was just a one-time not great meal, or is it slipping.

    My dear friend and I met here for their interesting cocktails and to try their famous bash burger. We loved it. First, we had a great table - postcard perfect. The wait staff all helped each other, so you never had to wait. The burger was so delicious, and the cocktails really were high class. The only downside is that it will all add up: every cocktail, burger and appetizer were $15+ each. But to be fair, for all the wonderfulness, it seemed a fair price. Tables by the window or in front of the bar are worth it, truly. Other tables are designed for a large group, like an office party.

    A bit more upscale than the other local burger places and one can get an actual cocktail (obviously they have lots of wine, but somehow wine does not go with a burger). Very nice local place, have always enjoyed our visits there.

    Each new bite was delicious, but we had to beg our waitress for a fork, water, answers to questions.. Without that unnecessary attitude, the meal would have been a 10/10... Preferred the appetizers to the main meal.

    Bar scene = great, very friendly and competent folks there. Appetizers = cheese plate, beet salad, and French Onion soup were very nicely prepared. However, for the main event, two burgers = disaster. First, they took forever, and burgers were hopelessly over and undercooked (we each ordered one); by the time it came out (late), it was too late to change the order. With that said, the restaurant manager did call me afterward to apologize profusely (I left a note on the receipt), and I'd like to give them another shot.

    The truffle burgers is quite delicious. The other dishes we had including a duck lasagna and some corn/crab chowder did not rate. The waiter made numerous mistakes including bringing the wrong entree as well as forgetting part of the order. No attempt was made to comp or notify the manager, just some mumbled apologies. They were not even very busy. We won't be back.

    Went her with my girlfriend for her birthday. We both had their famous bash burger, and thought it was great. Not sure if it necessarily one of the top 5 burgers in the city, but still very solid. One of our friends also had pre-ordered a bottle of champagne for us, which went without a hitch. Everyone, including servers that didn't have our table, wished her a happy birthday and our dessert came with a candle (but without any annoying singing or anything), which I thought was a nice touch. Highly recommend.

    Burger and Barrel is a true unique find. An interesting blend of burgers and great wine or great cocktails if you prefer. The food is amazing and the wine list is impressive. The place itself is kind of small and on a good night can get rather noisy. Overall I enjoyed my experience there and would go again.

    I had a great experience here. The staff was very friendly and attentive & the service was fast. But most importantly, the burger was awesome. The hype surrounding the "bash burger" is legit- I was very impressed. Juicy, tender, flavorful, cooked perfectly (I ordered medium rare), and appropriately messy. I love the the burger is already cut in half too. I was able to split the bash and the special burger of the day (the caprese, which was also great, but definitely #2 in comparison). My only complaint about the experience was that the drinks are overpriced. $6-$9 for a beer and $12-$15 for a glass of wine seems steep when you're dining on burgers.

    I liked the seating and the service. I had the classic burger with fries but I didn't think they were outstanding. The chopped salad had nice fresh ingredients but was overdressed in a heavy creamy dressing. I would go back to try other things on the menu. It's a good place for larger groups and there are enough choices on the menu depending on what you are in the mood for. The mini chocolate and nut dipped ice cream cones were great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP

    I've been here a couple times for brunch and always enjoyed it. For some reason, I felt like dishes I had eaten previously had an additional spice element that I didn't like. For some reason it seemed like the syrup for the chicken and waffles tasted off, and the tater tots had a little extra kick to them. Additionally, there was virtually no one there at 12:15 on a Saturday, which kind of made me look bad as I had been bringing a friend I recommended the place to. Anyways, I'll probably go back again at some point, but this was certainly a deterrance.
