We sat outside and it was the perfect spot. Breezy area, yet hidden from the weather. The food was top notch. Affordable, yet so creative and fresh and delicious. Drink list was also great and I enjoyed both that I ordered. I'm already planning to take my best friend there in a few weeks.

My last two visits to B&B the service was subpar. Each time we had to ask for a server. It took an hour to get food. The food was good but I won’t be going back anytime soon.

Delicious food and the server was accommodating for our food allergies. It was very loud though and difficult to hear one of our soft spoken friends.

The sweet potato fries were the 💣 and grouper a bit sloppy but great flavor. The hostess and my waiter were excellent!

Branch and Barrel is one of our favorite places to dine at Avalon. The food never disappoints and we love the seasonal changes to the menu The outdoor tables in the breezeway are comfortable year round.

We live locally and we love the convenience of Avalon. This place doesn’t disappoint!! We had appetizers Brussel sprouts, the popcorn chicken poppers and the smoked Salmon dip. Excellent side plates. We thoroughly enjoyed the drink and beer selection, too. Our waitress was very attentive and expressed appreciation for our patience because the kitchen was backed up. We had a great dinner and the service was amazing.

We chose to come here - our first time - for our anniversary. Our waiter was very good and the food was delicious. The one thing that made no sense was where the hostess sat us. The interior of the restaurant had only a couple of tables of patrons. There were two couples at two different 4-tops and she sat us at a 2-top right between them. Given COVID and lots of other available tables, that was surprising. Other than that, it was a delightful evening.

Birthday celebration with friends. We were seated on a covered patio. The waiter listened patiently to each person in a party of six. He answered questions confidently. The appetizers, especially the fish fingers were tasty and served hot. The entrees were also delicious. The exception were the grits in the shrimp and grits. The two people who ordered them felt the grits were not done and too course. I would recommend this restaurant.

Service was very good. Our waitress was Vicky. Really good fries. Ordered grilled chicken with peaches and honey. Very little peaches. Wish you could order a small side salad instead of fries. Overall experience was good.

It was wonderful! We had the crispy Brussels sprouts, salmon, brisket and chicken sandwich. Everything was delicious, including the drink of the day, an elderflower sparkling wine margarita. Only thing is I wish the staff were wearing masks. I’d love to bring my mom, a cancer survivor, here, because I know she’d just really enjoy it, but have to be extra careful for her safety.

Great meal at the B&B! Server was terrific, offering good recommendations on drinks and food. Little noisy for date nite, but really didn’t know what to expect on our first visit. Can’t wait to come back with friends!! Thanks!

Made arrangements 2 months ago for a celebration of my mother’s 95th birthday. The greeter acknowledged to me about my mom’s birthday so I assumed the waiter serving us had been informed. Our waiter arrives, does not even acknowledge us but lays down napkins and asks if we want anything to drink. I tried to be upbeat but she obviously was not interested in engaging in any small talk. She did fine taking our order and food was good. After plates were removed I inquired if she knew it was my mom’s birthday. She said no and politely wished my mom a happy birthday. She did review the dessert menu with my mom and brought her selection to her. Eventually we received silverware and plates for sharing.
So incredibly disappointed in Branch & Barrel not engaging with us to make this special day an eventful one! Sadly, will not consider B & B for any further special dinners!

Reservations for inside were not respected by hostesses, no alternative suggestions given so not the best experience. The food was good and the drinks at the bar were amazing.

Mason (our bartender) thank you so much for turning our date night around for the good!!

The food was good and the restaurant was busy. We enjoyed the cocktails as well. My steak was overcooked, but we did not have time for them to recook it because we were headed to a concert. Management was very accommodating and took it off the bill. We have not been back to this place in a very long time. I'm sure we'll be back again.

Service started great, had drinks & app out immediately, but took a while to place dinner order and then to get the check. The meal was mediocre, the sweet potato fries appetizer was the star. The brisket was tough & the pork shoulder was very crispy and a very small portion.

Our server was extremely busy and unable to check on us regularly to refill drinks. I also was surprised there was no offer for “another drink” or desert menu. I would have definitely been up for some upselling but there was not strong service

Great food and great service! Sitting outside was nice but the only reason I did not give 5 stars is because we had to swat flies. If you can put something out to prevent flies I will give this an all around 5 star experience. We will definitely be returning if for nothing but the Brussels sprouts!
