We got right in and our waitress was very nice, but we were told a few times they were busy and behind. We ordered an appetizer and over an hour later we still hadn’t gotten our food. We had our young daughter with us and she was very restless.
They then came out and said the cooks dumped a tray of the appetizer and they had no more left, this was over an hour after we ordered. Again, this was after we’d been seated for over an hour. They finally brought our food about 15 minutes after this. We were about ready to leave without eating. My wife’s food was dry and bland - had to order more sauces to help. Mine was ok, but not very hot and missing sauce and silverware. They brought our daughters last and she was clearly restless.
When we got the bill, they still had the appetizer on there that we never got. They did take it off, but just added to the overall frustration.
Also, the bathroom lines were long and after going in there were no paper towels and no electric dryer.
The place looks nice and our waitress was pretty nice, but it was an overall poor experience and I doubt we go back.
Thank you for your feedback and I'm so sorry the hear that you had a bad experience with us!! I promise you this is not the standard we hold ourselves accountable to and this was an isolated event. I would love to have the opportunity to have you back in and the chance to make this up to you.
Great service and enjoyed the food!
Thank you so much!!
Why do I need to type?!
Great service, good food. Sidewalk should have been cleared of ice better.
Thank you Karen!! I'm glad to see that we could make a memorable Valentine's Day for you. I apologize about the sidewalks. The city of Newark is very particular about what kind of ice melt we're allowed to use and I'm waiting on them to drop us off a new bag.
Server was great. Food was mediocre at best. Portions were small for price.
I'm sorry to hear that we fell short of your expectations!! I'd love for you to give us another chance to make it up to you.
Good food at decent prices
Thank you for taking time and leaving a review!! What can we do next time to get a 5 star review?
The hush puppies were to die for!!!! And the burnt old fashioned was delicious!
Thank you for your kind review!! I'm glad you had a great experience with us and look forward to seeing you again soon!!
First time, but really enjoyed myself. Food and drinks were great, waitress was friendly and made sure everything was right. Looking forward to trying their other food next time!
Thank you Erich!! You won't be disappointed with anything off our menu!!
Our waitress was fantastic! Best server we’ve had for many years! Great eye contact, personable.
Thank you Stacy!! We pride ourselves in giving exceptional service and experiences. Thank you for choosing to celebrate your Valentine's Day weekend with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!!
Very nice dining experience with the exception of the kid kicking the bench at the table behind us. Great food!
Thank you Caroline!! Hopefully on your next visit we can get that rating up to 5 stars!!
As one of the guests at our table said, “this place is really a treasure”. And she’s right. We enjoy every visit. Food, ambience, service and a Smoked Old Fashioned what more could you need?
Thank you so much!! We strive extremely hard to put forth the best experience and product that we can, and it feels good when it doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you for choosing to spend your Valentines Day weekend with us!!
I love this place. Mamosa's on Sunday morning were the perfect touch. Our service was outstanding. Enjoyed the waffles too.
Thank you Tracey, we hope to see you next Sunday!!
Just took a chance at this restayrant and was very pleased we did. Thank you.
Thanks for giving us a shot and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your experience!!
So good, we had to go back again! Tried the Burnt Ends hash (a must buy!) and my spouse had a traditional burger with house chips! Win-win all around!
We'll see you next week!!
Great date night location. Food was delicious. Have to pay for sides, but did I already mention everything tasted great?!!
Thanks for choosing us for your date night!!
Best brunch in town! Delicious waffles and biscuits with gravy! Plus $1.50/bone is well worth!
Love the food, and love the atmosphere. They do great bbq and their sides are awsome!
Thank you Courtney!!
The food was great as was the atmosphere and service. It's a little more than I like to spend eating out but it's a nice treat once in a while.
Thanks for coming in, we're glad to hear you had a great experience with us!!
The food and drinks here are AMAZING. The chicken wings are some of the best I've ever had, the mac-n-cheese was decent, the 18oz Cowboy Ribeye was excellent, and the Fireside for dessert was the perfect ending. Try the Spicy Manhattan to go along with it, so good! Highly recommend this place, TRY IT!!
Everything was good, the price was a little high and the noise level was annoying. Everyone in our party said their food was good, just a little pricey.
Fantastic brunch experience. With a wide variety of traditional brunch dishes (with a Barrel & Boar twist) as well as plenty of al a carte choices, there are plenty of options for everyone !! And oh so delicious, to boot!
Ribs had a nice flavor , but meat was fatty and horrible. Cole slaw was tastless..corn bread appetizers were overcooked. Won't be back.
Wonderful food, atmosphere and service from Emma.
Waited 40 mins for food and they weren't busy. Food wasnt exceptional for the price paid. I got a barrel burger and it was nothing spectacular. There was alot of grease. Sides are not included so I got an order of mac and cheese. It came in a tiny mason jar for $4 and tasted like buttered noodles. My fiance got brisket and cornbread. The cornbread was really dry and crumbly and again the meat was nothing exceptional.
The food and service was great! Just felt the portions were VERY small. The kids meals were a great value but the other meals were pricey and no sides came with
Best brunch in town -- delicious food, great options, and wonderful atmosphere. A must stop for a Sunday brunch.
The food microwaved. Service was ok. Not sure if they are struggling but I was highly disappointed.
Food is excellent, all dry rub meats with sauses on the side
First visit was bad. Service was horrible and food was mediocre. We waited a few months and gave them another try. The waitress had to get the manager because she even said the food looked bad. My girlfriend got the pulled chicken sandwich. It was not pulled and was cubed frozen chicken on a dry bun. I ordered the half rack of ribs and I could barely tear the meat off the bone with my teeth. Was good but dry and tough. Complete waste of money. They did take the chicken sandwich off the bill but we still spent $47. I will not return ever. I talked to a few other people since my visit and they had the same type of complaints with some service issues also. Said the only thing good there was the cornbread.
Great restaurant! Husband loved the burger and fries. I ordered the chef salad with corn salsa. HUGE!! Delicious dressing. Be sure also to order the appetizer, jalenpo cornbread. Large serving, delicious side sauce and very ample serving. The decor is so interesting. So good they preserved the building of long ago. What a super find!
The food was okay. The waitress only stopped by our table once when she wasn't dropping stuff off and there were only 4 tables.
My husband and I come here occasionally. It’s a 90 minute drive for us. He loves the shrimp and grits! The last two times I’ve gotten the flying Hawaiian sandwich and I love it too.
I liked how they’ve added black curtains to separate the booths- and the staff was wearing face masks.
We had a nice time and will be back.
Everything was great but they were out of kielbasa which is what my husband I were both planning on getting.
Our service was extremely slow. Food took forever to come out and after we placed the order we never saw our waitress again until she delivered the food.
Excellent as always. Jamie our waitress was also amazing As AKWSYS!!!!
We sat outside. The food was good, but a little high for what we got. The service was very good.
We had an amazing experience dining at Barrel & Boar in Newark this past Friday night. The food was wonderful and the service was top notch! Our server was very attentive to our needs and extremely pleasant. We will be repeat customers for sure!
Thank you Valerie!!
Fantastic on all fronts! Thank you.
Thank you Jared!!
We had a group of 6 and was promptly seating. The Service and Food was outstanding.
The only complaint was our table sat directly in front of the main door and every time the door opened there was a blast of cold air. The owner visited our table and apologized for the temperature.
He shared that they recently made upgrades to the entrance adding a breeze way, which did help, however because of how busy they were that evening the door was constantly being opened.
Other than that, I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great overall. Food and atmosphere were both amazing. Would definitely recommend.
