Barrel & Boar - Canal Winchester
Our first trip there and i can say it was worth it. The server was attentive and helpful ,
the food was very good , and the music was awesome and my little man thought it was cool.
Thank you for making our mothers day outstanding excellent job and you now have a new set of fans, Thanks again Tom K and Fam.
Don’t know waste your money! This was our first time eating here and will be our last. Food was highly overpriced, all items individually priced. I ordered brisket and a side of collard greens that came out to about $18. The brisket was like four pieces of bacon loaded with fat. My son ordered wings 10 for $17! That’s not even including the fries on the side. My wife ordered macaroni and cheese with pork that turned out to be dry with burnt pieces of meat. Other two children both ordered from the kids menu and food was mediocre at best
Bottom line… The value, quantity and quality of food were sorely lacking. A family of five spent well over $80 for a meal that likely would’ve been better at city barbecue for half the price.
It was a great way to spend a rainy Mother’s Day. Can’t wait to come back and sit outside!
Our server was great. The food was horrible. My father's steak was over cooked and full of fat. My little one wouldn't eat the plain, hard buttered noodles. My brisket was like shoe leather. The best thing was the hush puppies and even those weren't spectacular. Your wine list leaves a lot to be desired. Will not be coming back.
Nice place, affordable and quality barbecue. My parents loved it. It's a good place to take your parents.
1st visit at this location have been to the Gahanna location twice before. Me and my wife enjoyed our food but were thrown off by the live music just bc we didn't expect it. Other than that thumbs up.
The service and food was outstanding as usual. The food portions are good, however I feel just a tad overpriced for some things. For instance, many places offer pulled pork with fries or slaw. Here everything is a la carte and it adds up quickly. That is my ONLY complaint and yes, I will continue to visit, just not as much as I'd like to. Lots of gluten free options but cross contamination is prevalent.
It was a birthday treat to my husband. It was a little pricier than I anticipated. But food and such was good.
Food was good but not great. Menu prices were absolutely NOT worth the value. Your prices are unreasonable!!
I can’t say that enough!!!
Service was okay.
Food was amazing. Only problem we had was we were never offered more drinks
6pm rsvp on a Wednesday was perfect timing for the Barrel & Boar at the Canal Winchester location. The restaurant filled up shortly after. Food was GOOD a little on the pricey side. We have also been to the Newark location and it was also a good experience.
Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere! Prompt service, some of the items are a little pricey.
Menu is dumbed down to about 6 things. Quality has been taken way down. Would not recommend until things go back to normal.
The portion sizes were to small for the price point. The rub for the meat was good. They were out of salmon and burgers. The service was ok but not great.
Easter Brunch. Limited menu but food was very good
Picture going to a place that advertises Easter Brunch... you make an rsvp... bring 7 people to celebrate Easter... Then boom - no pancakes, no waffles, no this, no that...... peanut butter... no jelly, cereal... no sugar... toast ... no butter... the definition of HOT Garbage.... on a side note they also can not, will not, or maybe do not know how to make Egg Whites. Cheers to the Barrel & Boar.. by the way this is my 1st ever review of any establishment.. PS- your welcome
We had Easter Brunch-It was a nice lunch and the wait staff/management was very friendly and attentive.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so thankful that you all chose us for Easter Brunch. We hope to see you all soon! -Donte
I’ve never had an open table reservation ignored before. Hostess treated us like we had just walked in. Not sure if the others waiting had reservations but we were the only ones she called by name. We were not late, we were exactly on time. She seated everyone else before us then did not have any standard tables left and offered us a high top. Which was fine, we didn’t have a preference, but if I had I would have been angry instead of just peeved. I do t go to the trouble of making a Rez if the restaurant is just going to ignore it.
Beside that the waitress was great, and the food delicious!
Computers went down so food took 1 hr and 15 minutes to get. Also, well into that hour, we got told out of ribs which one person in our party ordered. We got offered appetizers to help during the wait but couldn't make the queso so they brought us a plate of celery (5 pieces) and bleu cheese and 2 hush puppies for 4 people....a little lacking on trying to make up for the issues. Another in our party order a hamburger, med-well, came out more med-rare. Didn't even complain about that knowing how long we already waited to get our food. I will say our server, Lauren, was very nice.
Had reservations for 6, We sat 15 min before ordering our drinks, sat 40 min before placing our food order, then another about 40 min before receiving food. Food was fairly good, but manager made lots of excuses as to why there was such a delay on food ordering & prep. Not a great a experience & unlikely to return soon. Was disappointed as I had heard good things.
We had reservations, but had to wait about 10 minutes. The waiter was friendly and the service was good. Food prices were a bit high, but we enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious.
Great staff and delicious food.
Good like always. Great staff and drinks.
I was able to reserve a table and checked the website and then upon arriving at the restrain the place was closed.
Our group enjoyed everything about our meal at Barrel & Boar!
Everything was great here. A nice, quiet ambiance, great food, and comfortable seating area.
Love the atmosphere here and will continue to visit as it's in our neighborhood, but food is inconsistent. Sometimes the food is excellent, other times it's below average. Most recent visit we had what seemed to be the bottom of the bag of BBQ chips with our queso, and everyone's fries had been under the warmer for quite some time. Brisket was dry. We will give it another try, but quality could use some tweeking.
Food and service was amazing. Great atmosphere. Our waitress was amazing.
It was great! Great service! Great food!
Very good food! Very nice place! Would come back again.
Kris - Thank you so much for your review! We would love to have you back again. -Donte
This is the second time I’ve been here when there have been fruit flies all around. In fact one landed in my beer.
We are so sorry for your experience, I see you rated the food and value high. Thats half of the battle but the experience is what we are trying to provide the most. We found a leak in our bar sinks that we providing a moist habitat for the buggers. We have mitigated that, so now we are on the battle to get them out of here. -Donte
My wife and I had such a great evening at Barrel and Boar. They had a live Blues band that set a great atmosphere. They told us that they played weekly on the patio before the pandemic, so hopefully that can come back when the warm weather returns. The food was great, we had the brisket and pulled pork. To top it off they had a special bourbon and chocolate pairing that we shared.
Noff - Thank you for that review! We are extremely grateful for you choosing us on Valentine's Day, as it is our pleasure to serve you. We would love to have you back anytime! -Donte
Other than it was very cold at our table, next to a window in winter, it was a great dinner and atmosphere
Ordered pork sandwich and Mac and cheese.
Food was barely warm. Mac and cheese was almost cold.
Great service and food (especially the BBQ and Mac) was excellent!
We were seated right away, but service was slow. We made reservations, but didn’t need them. The were not busy, we never got refills on drinks, and we sat at our table, food finished, for a long time before anyone noticed, then it was several more minutes until they brought our check. The food was good, and restaurant was nice, but after driving 40 mins to try it, my husband and I were not overly impressed with the result.
Our food was delicious and our server was amazing. There was live music which was so enjoyable. Just the right amount of music without being overbearing. A great evening out.
Terri - Thank you for your review! Who was your server? Brandi Sparks is an awesome musician, we will have her back often in the warmer months. Have you followed us on FB? We post a lot of our events and specials on there. Cheers, Donte
Ordered soup it came out cold send it back the 2nd one was lukewarm so I just didn't have dinner
