My family and I enjoyed brunch on a recent Sunday afternoon. The food was excellent, service was great, and a good time was had by everyone. Highly recommend the smoked cheese and crab soup, Texas chili, grilled romaine salad, deviled eggs, and tater tots (as an app--not just a side).

Food was excellent. Service was very good. The table behind us was so loud I could barely hear myself talk. It persisted and was unbelievably agitating. Would not go back unless I’m in a back room somewhere.

Ive been to this restaurant several times with great service. After our server first greeted us I literally had to wave him down every time we wanted service. He regularly passed our table without even looking our way or stopping to check on us. We left early to find somewhere else for drinks without giving our normally sizable tip.

Love the food here, a little pricey - but nothing out of normal Tyson's price range, and love sitting outside for lunch. Not sure why they don't have wait service at the outside tables anymore. The bartender does a great job keeping up with the orders / tabs - it's just really awkward talking/reaching over people seated at the bar to place orders/get drinks/pay, especially if you're trying to have a business lunch.

Hostess and Host were INCREDIBLY rude. Wow. Recommend the restaurant rethink the decision to have them at front.
The food, server, and ambiance were very nice. We had a lovely lunch.
Would I go back? Maybe... but right now I’d have to be VERY hungry to go through interacting with the Hostess and Host again.

We went to Barrel and Bushel on the recommendation of one of our party members who had been at the restaurant for an office get together. We all liked the casual and comfortable farm table decor immediately. The service was prompt and friendly and the waitress recommended the Hot Fried Chicken to share as well as other appetizers we were considering. So glad she did because the chicken was absolutely delicious and incredibly tender. The Avocado Crab Toast was another standout. I have already recommended B&B to a several friends. A wonderful addition to Tysons restaurant scene.

- Came for Sat brunch
- Service was fine, waiter was very friendly
- Great ambience. In a great location
- Sat a noisy group of people next to us at the restaurant, even though there were plenty of tables empty across the restaurant
- Food took a long time to come despite the fact the restaurant wasn’t full. Would have liked an update if there was an issue preparing. Saw other people who came in 5-10 mins afterwards get their food before us

The food was wonderful, the beer delicious. The only problem I had was it was hard to hear my fiance across the table, however it was really easy to hear other conversations around us. If you are looking for a place where you can have a nice romantic conversation this might not be the place. But definitely bring a large group of friends here for some awesome food and beer.

Came here for my birthday dinner on my birthday . Waited 20 minutes for a menu and a waitress. Was told that i had to order from the bar on one side of the patio and the other had a server. So we sat where the server was going to serve. Server helped us. After we were served food we were fine. Just didnt like that i had to wait so long to even get a menu. No one seemed to know what was going on or who was working.

I love Barrel and Bushel food, but recently the service has been terrible which was a true shame. I went on Friday night with a group of 6 ladies. We couldn't get our server attention to order a second round of drink. The waiter was rude and dismissive. At the end of the day, we left as soon as we finished out meal, and went else where to finish the night. I really love the food and atmosphere, but poor service hurt my friends opinion and lost the restaurant over $100 that night... I'll still think the restaurant has amazing food!

good for the pub food, burgers/sandwiches etc. i had the scallops and while good the pistachios added didn't do anything to enhance the dish, they were just sort of there. the side dish of carrots could also have used a little more stewing/roasting time to make them more soft. so go with the american stand-bys but maybe try the "fancy" dishes at a different restaurant.

Went there after a movie Sunday evening, the restaurant was almost empty no more than 30 folks eating at this time. It took over 30 minutes to receive our cocktail orders. Our server was more interested in his phone than his customers. This was a very poor showing for B&B.

This is the third time that I have been SHOCKED at the slow service here. With so many people obviously in for business lunches, one would think that they would have perfected the one-hour business lunch by now. For at 12 noon reservation, we did not get our food until about 12:40, and we had two pieces of fish and a salad. Very disappointing. Our waiter also didn't check in on us, did not refill water, and generally did not seem to care that we were there. If the food weren't so good, I wouldn't come back.

Food is good but they need more servers. Our server was very nice, very accommodating, but he was spread too thin and had too many tables. It took a long time for our food to arrive and then for the bill to arrive and then for the payment to be processed even though it was Sunday lunch. When we arrived (we had reservations) there were at least five tables of four that hadn't been cleared yet. We were a party of 3 but since none of the available tables for four had been cleared, we were placed in a large booth which was nice. The pork belly sliders were sold out, but the pork belly appetizer wasn't. It was very good, but the pieces were tiny. It needed more substantial pieces than inch wide pieces on toothpicks. Luckily we shared this. One person in our party had very specific requests on her order and to his credit, the waiter was incredibly accommodating. He also gave us free drinks (perhaps because service was slow) and since it was a birthday he brought ice cream with birthday candles in them and Happy Birthday spelled out in chocolate sauce on the plate. Very nice! I would go back because the food is good and service is friendly and cheerful, but don't go if you're in a rush and have a movie to catch. Luckily we had allowed 2 hours for brunch and had bought our tickets in advance so that wasn't a problem.

We were meeting up with family at Tysons Corner and took the suggestion of a friend to try Barrel and Bushel. We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality food, exceptional service, and all around good feel to our experience. Barrel & Bushel is definitely much nicer than a typical brew pub and was very welcoming even to our grandchildren. The grandchildren and their dad also enjoyed the large chess game and Jenga available outdoors. We would definitely go again.

This is one of our go-to spots for dinner out but our experience last weekend was terrible. We waited almost 15 minutes upon being seated for anyone to come over. We had two tables next to us that were being attended to but it was like we were an after thought - the restaurant was not that crowded and we were eating during an off peak time. It was not until my fiance went and grabbed a manager did a waiter come over to ask to take our order. The rest of the experience was sub par at best, with the exception of the food. One would expect some sort of apology or compensation for the lack of service and less than desirable experience but we received nothing. Extremely disappointing.

Great food, not the place to go if you want to talk to the people you are with, way too loud even in dining room. They really need to wall off, or at least install some soundproofing in the dining area from the bar, like others in the area have done for years. Sort of restaurant 101 really.

I have stopped at Barrel & Bushel for drinks before but decided to try dinner this time. The bar staff is very attentive and helpful. The Happy Hour is worth stopping for but it can get crowded at times. I was conflicted for my overall score of the dinner experience. The food was outstanding but unfortunately service was a little slow and the tables are set up for large groups and not privacy. If you are looking for a tasty meal but can work past the so-so service, I would recommend stopping here!

This place was not quite what I expected- it was a really unique feel. The seating was a bit odd, communal tables, but the food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the deviled eggs and the fried chicken sliders. The chick pea salad was good, but not quite what I was expecting. Overall, the service was helpful and the food tasted very fresh.

We ended up eating at a table on the patio so I cannot vouch for service inside the restaurant. We had to get our own drinks from the bar and food was delivered afterwards. The food tasted good. Bartenders were inconsistent in charges for our drinks - some charged sales tax while others did not. We were there during Happy Hour time so the specials were a good deal.
