    Limited menu options so I would make sure you look at the menu before, however, the menu items offered are exceptional.

    I cannot say a single negative thing about Barrel & Boar-Gahanna. If I lived closer, I would eat there much more often.

    Appetizers and entrees were good. Dining out has experienced reduced portions coupled with increased prices across the industry and it was evident on this visit. The burnt ends appetizer wasn't generous, but the loaded fries were satisfactory. Entrees were satifying, but no need for doggy bags. Service was great.

    The service was good. One of our orders was messed up. They made it right, but it took a while to get it, and everyone was done eating. The ribs I had were dried out on one side, which made them tough. The drinks were good. There was a live band, which was fun, but loud. Made talking to each over difficult. Overall, things were good.

    We came specifically on Father’s Day for the Sunday Brunch Bar but was told this hasn’t happened since covid started although it is listed in the OpenTable menu. Something about how Open Table hasn’t changed it after being told 🤷🏽‍♀️. We were disappointed but pivoted and ordered chicken & waffles, pancakes and a burger. The chicken & waffles aren’t what you’re used to but they were good, spicy, but good.

    I ordered the rib dinner with sweet potato fries. Both were perfectly seasoned and tasted fantastic. The restaurant was clean and the waitstaff was friendly and gave food suggestions when asked. The food was hot and the beer was cold. I will definitely be back for more.

    Our table is ready right away which was very nice. It wasn’t busy. The food was good for the most part. The salmon my sister ordered was dry. The first three beers I selected were not available due to issues with the dispensing of it which was disappointing. Our waitress was phenomenal and very sincerely apologetic for the issue with the beer and she made a nice environment for us. Thank you

    Barrel and Boar need to update their menu on OpenTable. They do not serve a brunch buffet. They serve off the menu. Had my heart set on the buffet for everyone for my dad’s 71st Bday just to be told that they haven’t had it since Covid. That probably was why the place was almost empty. Everyone ordered and nobody was overly impressed with anything. It was average food for a above average price. The egg frittata was supposed to be filled with meat and veggies… got over cooked eggs with overcooked ham with some onions and peppers. My wife didn’t even finish it. Their lunch and dinner food is incredible but we will never go back for brunch again.

    Barrel & Boar- GahannaResponded on June 7, 2022Hello JulieN. I'm so glad you were able to try and enjoy some of our new options on the menu. Once a week we do a special on favorites from the old menu, so follow our facebook page and hopefully one of your favorite past items will be available. You're also more than welcome to drop a suggestion on something you'd like to see offered again.

    Unfortunately Berrilyn Bort has changed their menu so much that it’s not really the restaurant that it used to be. Used to be all about BBQ and southern food but much of that is gone now. On top of that their prices are extremely high for the product. The food is very good and the service is good but the value isn’t there.

    Service could have been faster. We had to ask for refills several times. Other than that, it was good.

    Barrel & Boar- GahannaResponded on May 24, 2022We will definitely focus on faster service in the future, especially on hot days. No one wants to wait on a refill.

    There were items ordered by our party that were either not brought to the table or that we had to go back inside the restaurant to request again. The service was “Fair”. The food was very good and the outside ambiance was perfect.

    For a family reunion, we had food and drinks to suit everyone. Everything was delicious, appetizers and desserts shared around the table and each entree was great. The only knock was the noise level, but that’s to be blamed solely on our table.

    We came in for Easter lunch and had a wonderful experience! The food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Grace was our server and she was so nice and funny! We adored her! The manager of the restaurant was fantastic. Made sure everything was great and that we had everything we needed. Super friendly and great outgoing personality! We live closer to the Westerville location, but I would drive to this location any day! Top notch service!
