No one was wearing a mask that was working. When we came in to be seated we were not greeted. The food was ok. It wasn’t that great. Bland and needed to be seasoned.

Service was excellent. Our server, Taylor, was on top of everything and never left us hanging. The food was delicious all the way around. I highly recommend the brussel sprouts and the broiled goat cheese to start. I ordered the salmon BLT (I love a good salmon sandwich) and was happy to see that it came on a delicious soft bun, instead of a hard roll. I dined with 4 other friends and they all enjoyed their food and cleaned their plates.
Oh! They had some great cocktails too (I had the Hip Hip Gin Gin which was super tasty)! I’ll be back to dine again for sure.

Fun Monday night meeting friends out in Avalon while on a business trip.
Our server was very friendly and attentive but not overbearing or overzealous.
Everyone enjoyed their entrees: grilled salmon; brisket with mac/cheese; chicken sandwich; ribs w/ sweet potato fries and slaw.
A couple good local craft beers on the menu with a nice selection of Bourbon.
Would like to see a couple more craft beers and varieties on tap.

This was my first time at Branch & Barrel, and I will return.

The dining room is small, cramped, and loud. Extremely hard - impossible to social distance inside. Outsiding seating is available, and it was much easier to social distance...by request. I'm not sure that's the business effort, but the # of guests allowed for it while we were there.

The food is so good. Full of flavor. Tasty. Perfect portions.
The deviled eggs with pimento cheese are a must try. Even if you don't eat deviled eggs. I also recommend the jalapeno mac and cheese. I don't like/can't eat spicy, and this side is not spicy at all. Also... the brussel sprouts are prepared uniquely, simply, and perfect. You won't be disappointed.

For our first time there, our experience was well above average! Food was tasty. Service great even though very busy on a Friday night. Noise level is a little high, but our table was right in the middle of the restaurant. Manager, Kevin, made our visit even more enjoyable and memorable!

We ate outdoors with out of town friends this weekend. Food and service is always excellent. Can't go wrong with their Brussels Sprouts appetizer. The best! Our party of four had the B & B burger (2) and Pimento Cheese burger and Hanger Steak entree and everyone enjoyed their meal! A great go-to in Avalon! (Their grilled salmon sandwich and salads are delicious too.)

As always, the varied & well-priced menu provides options for all tastes. The restaurant was bustling due to beautiful weather and vaccines! It was crowded inside, but the staff have separated tables with curtains and partitions. We love brussels sprouts and routinely order them as appetizers wherever & whenever they appear on a menu. Branch & Barrel's are the best of the lot: always perfectly cooked, crisper, large portion, just delicious. I had the tender and well-seasoned flank steak which was cooked exactly as ordered (medium rare), the 2 side dishes that accompanied it were extremely generous and delicious: I subbed the regular fries for sweet potato fries, plus fresh coleslaw. My significant other had the fish sandwich, which was cooked perfectly. This restaurant is a reliable neighborhood standby for us.

The fried checken was way loaded with salt and inside was over the top noisy. We could hardly hear each other. We dined very early asked to sit outside and were declined. The entire time we were there there were tables open outside. Very disappointing for the price. We won't return. Too many other options in Avalon.

We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday.... she lives out of town!!! It’s our BIRTH day ! Fabulous food, as always! Grilled salmon, chili grouper and shrimp/ grits. While I loved my cucumber martini, my husband and son enjoyed the wide range of bourbon and beer selections. Mason was our server and he went above and beyond to make our dinner special! Kudos to the chef! We had such a fun evening. It was our first time back to Branch & Barrel, since Covid.
