We've been to B&B several times, but this was our first brunch. Everything was delicious! We'll definitely be brunching there again!

Excellent. I'm sure it is very busy during happy hour. My early lunch was perfect. Good salad, good beer, excellent service. They had child seat, kids menu, and colored pencils for my unexpected guest.

Great staff. Truly good service. But this is hotel food and drinks at its worst. Very conventional, seemed like it probably came in a bag from costco. thick sauces, average, too sweet, mediocre drink list.

This is my second experience at Barrel and bushel and it was disappointing. The service was good but the food was subpar. The BBQ sliders were so dry and tough and so was the crust of the apple galette. I almost sent it back but the server was so sweet.

Little disappointed with the service. Our waiter did not make any recommendations and had a stoic face the entire time only to say "what do you want" when ordering, which led me to believe he was not happy about serving us. As a person who has worked in the food industry for many years in the past it is crucial to be enthusiastic and friendly when serving customers. It adds so much more value to the experience and I feel that our service was flat. Two of my guests were from out of town and while they enjoyed the food they mentioned that they would much rather try something different because they did not care for the service.

Service problem: since when is the main dish brought before soup and then everything at once. Restaurant wasn’t busy so it surprising that we had to look for a server to take our order. Pub burger was so greasy that I was sick for the rest of the night. I’m not going back.

Had a Christmas dinner reservation for 6 at 4:15 PM. The restaurant was busy but not too crowded all night. It was a lovely evening and good place for a family ranging from ages one to 66. I wish the vegan options were broader as there was no bun option and I was told the meatless meatballs were made with egg. So I got to eat a lettuce wrapped Beyond Burger which wasn’t very exciting. The local craft beer selection was much wider ranging and sufficient.

Our server was nice enough but forgot to put our orders in with the kitchen after taking them, delaying the arrival of our food (and this for a holiday meal) by an hour. One of the orders was also put in incorrectly, resulting in a further delay. I credit the server with being honest, and not blaming the mistake on the kitchen, but this was a bit hard to understand at a time when the restaurant wasn't really very crowded. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry, but the experience did make a meal a lot less enjoyable than it could have been.

It took an extra long time to get our food order taken. The server was very nice and quite accommodating so maybe he had too many tables. The drinks were bland.

Maybe brunch might be better.

We split the fish taco cups, pork belly sliders, and the B&B burger. All three items were delicious but the fish tacos were phenomenal! My husband had a seasonal gingerbread stout that he liked a lot. My seasonal drink, the flannel shirt was pretty tasty too.

Crazy loud. You have to yell at each other to be heard, just sitting across the table from each other. It was a busy Thursday night, but it seems to be always busy, and impossibly noisy. Food was only marginal and significantly overpriced for what you get. Sorry, one visit and done.

Overall nice venue, good food but with three drawbacks.
- Noisy. Little bit too loud if you want to have a business lunch
- On the expensive side. $28 for a lunch Tuna Avocado Salad...shredded lettuce, few scoops of avocado and good size portion of Tuna.
- Getting into and out Tyson's and parking is just becoming too painful. Not the restaurant's fault but this fact alone is making me reluctant to select any venues for a business meeting.

Interesting beer selections and the small plates are great. I prefer to share multiple sides / small plates rather than the main dishes. They are more interesting and fun. Also great for happy hour, especially in the warm weather b/c the outdoor space is very nice.

The service was great, but the food has really taken a downturn since the last time we were there. Vegetables were extremely under cooked, and basically raw, and over sauced. The brioche bun my burger was on was stale, and it just really wasn’t worth the money. If it wasn’t for the great service our server gave us, I would have given them one star.

Who would have thought a restaurant inside a hotel would be so lively and the food so delicious. First off, this place is loud! We were against an outer wall too, and it was still loud. If you don't want to easily talk so much with the person you're sitting across from, this is no big deal. Now the food -- that chef rocked. Tapas plates are available, or you could get entrees, which included seafood dishes or even burgers. We did a little of both. We got a half pound of shrimp ... perfectly spiced, jumbo and firm ... wow ... and each got the cod dish, which was probably the best cod I've ever had. Service was ok ... the waiter missed the customary "Is everything as you like it?" check-in, and water glasses went empty for longer than they should have, but it was busy. Overall, we enjoyed it and would go back.
