Everything was great. We sat at the bar and had a good time chatting with a few locals and the bartender. Good was excellent. Very fun place. Want to go back when they open the outdoor patio.

I have walked by barrel and bushel 100 times and had not eaten there until this week. I always thought it was a hotel bar. To my surprise, the food was outstanding. The drink specials for happy hour were good and the place was lively.

I had the hot fried chicken which is their equivalent of chicken and waffles. Outstanding. Service was spotty but the food and drink choices were great.

Barrel and bushel is the best kept secret in Tyson’s.

great drinks and excellent food. Nice atmosphere and ambience for either after work drinks or dinner. Creative menu with creative takes on traditional pub fair. Sliders were great along with the other burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc. Steaks and other dishes available for a great sit down dinner.

This is a restaurant in a hotel, in a mall. That should give some indication of its mediocrity. The food and service were good; but the rest of the place was just noisy and generic.

Our waiter was so busy with the larger party next to us that she did not pay much attention to our party (of 5.) it was hard to get her attention to get drinks. Food was ok.

It was my uncle's birthday and I had requested a surprise cake/dessert & candle which never came. Also, we could not get frequent enough requests and services from our hostess. The beer was also warm.

The food was great! Portion sizes are HUGE! However, service is fairly slow. I’d recommend to someone who isn’t in a big hurry. It’s also important to note, it is connected to the hotel and not a stand-alone restaurant. We didn’t realize that until we started looking for the location! Lol.

Excellent appetizers (the frito pie and pretzel are both exceptional!), service and ambience. It's a little chic, but I would definitely go back. The salmon and fried chicken entrées did not disappoint. The staff was adequately attentive and provided a very friendly atmosphere. I will definitely be back!

We enjoyed having breakfast on Christmas Day at B & B. The receptionist provided a warm greeting. Nelson, the server, provided menu recommendations and was quick to provide coffee and water refills when needed. The food was great. We highly recommend the Chirizo Hash.

We had a birthday lunch for a coworker here and really enjoyed our time. We chose B&B because they have good vegetarian options. The group was 7 large, so they put us in the private room in the back. That allowed us to converse without yelling at the top of our lungs, which we appreciated. People seemed to enjoy their food overall. My burger was under seasoned and had some inedible parts in the meat, but the fries were good. The best thing we ate were some tater tot appetizer. I don’t know what it was called, but the tots were in some sauce with peppers and scallions on top. They were incredible. I’d go back just for those.

everything we ordered was great. i didn’t love the long cafeteria-style table they seated our party of 3, but it was pretty quiet so i wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it. just something to note for next time. other than that, the service and the food was all great. will definitely be back.

Food and service were good. Enjoyed the Smoked Cheese Crab soup and Grilled Cheese Benedict. Mentioned on the reservation that it was our friend's birthday who was visiting from out of town, would have been nice if they acknowledged it with a candle or something. Good drink selection and Bourbon list, have had very good bar service in the past.
