Love this place! Food is great and they were very accommodating especially during a pandemic. The tables are socially distanced so we felt comfortable. We came for Sunday brunch and I only wished they had more of a “breakfast” menu.

Service was outstanding! Very friendly, helpful, timely, and responsive. They were grateful for our business. The crab dip was out of this world, wish they served it with options other than pretzel but still really enjoyed it. Among the best I’ve had. Overall it was a great dining experience and will definitely return.

Ate outside. Ordered from our table via a scanned barcode. So easy. A masked and gloved staff served us our drinks and food that we ordered. Felt safe and food was great!

Finding Barrel but it is worth the trip. A nice ambiance and view, the restaurant features a small but tasty menu with some intriguing appetizers and a solid group of entrees. A nice wine menu too especially for those who opt of a glass instead of a bottle. Our server was extremely helpful in helping us choose both courses. Best of all, everything was fresh, as B&B advertises.

If you have gluten sensitivities or allergies, this is not the best choice for you. There are very limited options and the menu is not marked for GF-appropriate foods.

The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was very tasty. Wait time wasn’t long either. Prices were also reasonable. There is a spacious area for outdoor eating but if it’s too hot outside they have an entire wall window that they keep open so you can feel the AC and won’t feel unsafe eating inside during this pandemic. Overall my mom and I loved it

Have been to B great draft beer selection. Food was great Except the steak salad— we asked “medium” and it was cooked welldone on outside and rare in middle. Other share plates esp sliders and crab/avocado toast were terrific. Would definitely come back again.

Food was good. It seems like they still have some kinks in the system as I was told there was an outside hostess but we ended up just seating ourselves. Somebody came by once to check on us (in 2 hours) but we had to flag someone down for plates, serving utensils & silverware to share our appetizer as well as extra napkins during the course of our meal.

Good place to come and take a break from what's currently going on in the world by eating in a friendly upbeat yet private atmosphere. My husband and I have dinned here twice before for dinner and brunch and the people who work here are friendly and the food is yummy.

Stopped in for brunch before a Sunday shopping excursion but was disappointed with the food and service. I ordered the “make your own omelette “ which was pretty straightforward. Unfortunately the omelette was missing two key ingredients (cheese and sausage). Instead of offering to make the omelette again, the server brought me a sausage link and a cup of shredded cheese. Yep...that’s the same. Not sure I can be convinced to go back.

Barrel & Bushel really makes a first rate effort to make everyone feel safe. They have hand sanitizer in multiple locations, the outdoor seating was well spaced and the online ordering was fast and easy. The sliders were delish and they have a varied drink selection. Was the perfect spot for a safe little happy hour. Highly recommend!

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.
