Barrel & Boar - Westerville
Sweet Potato Fries
They do know how to BBQ but it is very very loud. Hard to hold a conversation.
I feel like our reservation was lost. We waited 15 mins for our table to be ready. The host seemed out of sorts and unfocused. Also, while live music is great, it was a little loud to have a conversation. Also, our server couldn’t communicate with us without removing her mask because it was so loud. Additionally, our server dumped our appetizer all over my husband. They replaced it but it wasn’t hot. We were not comped for the appetizer either. When we received our entree, I didn’t feel like my food temp was hot either. The space seemed like a cool vibe but I can’t say we will be back.
First time in the area and we were intrigued by the building. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The live music was very nice. The food was average and a bit pricey for what we got.
Nice comfortable Chairs, Great food, Great service, I will defiantly go back for business lunches and evenings with the family.
Our experience at Barrel & Boar was top-notch! The food is fantastic, the beer list is on point, and the service was outstanding. The outdoor patio area was awesome! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone, and we will definitely be back again!!
The food was delicious, and the live music in the patio was fantastic. We’ll be back soon!
Music was very loud and the food/drinks were mediocre for the price.
We went for Restaurant Week. It is how we try new restaurants. The food was delicious except for the dessert. We got poached apples with salted caramel and chocolate. They apples were poached in lemon salt water too. They were extremely salty and we couldn't eat them. This will definitely NOT keep us from coming back. Everything else was amazing!
Really great ribs and soup. Service was a little slow but worth the wait.
First time on the new patio and it was great. Our server was super friendly and very helpful and attentive. Food came out super quick and everything was super tasty.
Dining here was perfect. Loved the food, workers, and atmosphere!!
Made a reservation for 6:30pm via Open Table. When we arrived we were immediately told that it would 20-25 minutes to be seated. I explained but I have a reservation for this time. There were open tables so we really questioned the hostess. We were told they are super busy and it would be 20-25 minutes. Why would they accept the reservation then? Why didn’t they reach out to me before it was time for my reservation. We left and didn’t eat. I am not mad but it didn’t make sense so I thought I’d share.
Menu change is mostly ala cart and is more expensive than a few months ago. Maybe new management or new direction but we really didn't enjoy too much about our last visit.
The patio was really nice and cozy. Felt like there was enough space between tables.
If you like great food at a good price with that uptown feel, visit Barrel & Boar in Westerville. We ate inside, but they've recently added a patio for outdoor dining. I highly recommend supporting local businesses in the Westerville area and Barrel & Boar is another excellent restaurant option in the Uptown area.
Beef tips were un eatable due to fat content.(sent back to the kitchen) Replaced with 2 slices of brisket that was pretty good. French fries were seasoned but had little taste.
16th wedding anniversary. The entire staff made it such an awesome experience. We were most impressed by the chef serving us our steaks personally.
Always a great experience every time we have been here
Found it on a fluke and won't stop coming back! The old Theater gives it a cool vibe and they've done a great job making good use of the space and keeping the ambiance. The food was impeccable. From my perfectly done cheddar grit cake (The Charleston), the perfect Sugar Pearl Waffles and the Red Eye biscuits and gravy every bite was delicious! Barbecue Restaurant feels almost like an insult! Southern roots, barbecue based brilliant is more like it. Keep it up Barrel & Boar and we will certainly see you soon!
The service and food were excellent.
Food brought out way too quickly - hadn’t started our 2nd chicken wing and the main course was out. May have been because we were the only table that night, but still should have been more patient.
Concept is good. Food was average - there are too many competitors with really good BBQ. To charge a higher price for sit down service is fine, but quality has to improve. Service was good.
Nice staff , mediocre bbq, cocktails even worse
Always the best barbecue this side of Texas. Been there many times before and will continue to go back.
Service was not good in any aspect. We had to request our drinks several times as the waiter passed. When he finally brought dinks and water, the waiter spilled a glass of water all over our table and a person in our party. A side salad arrived after the main course. Multiple requests again to waiter for a to go box. The food was very good, but for that kind of money, we will go elsewhere.
High quality food and outstanding drinks. I love the setting and will continue to go back.
Server was very polite and on top of everything. We had 3 grandchildren with us. Server kept them busy and happy! Food was out quickly and delicious. Jason came to our table a spoke to us for a bit. Overall excellent experience.
We love the atmosphere and our server Ben was excellent! Went there for our daughter’s 13th birthday! Loved all our food choices!
The food overall was great - however one of the sides I chose was a side of cheddar/sausage grits. They were extremely dry and solid - like almost cornbread texture. No sausage in it at all. Had one bite and that was all I needed. Maybe it’s not a popular evening dish, but as some of the main entrees are grits, I assumed it would be great. The mac & cheese however was delish! I had the winter salad and it was pretty good also!
Reserved a table for 7:15 and wasn’t seated until after 7:45! But good was great!
It was a nice Valentine's Day dinner, and I must say that the service and attention to detail was excellent! The food was very good, and the environment, while somewhat noisy, was active and lively. I'll be back.
Thank you To all who made our valentines dinner special. The red carnations were such a special touch.
Second time visiting. Really annoyed when we arrived promptly at our reservation time, and there were obvious empty tables for parties of 2 & 4. Hostess said "it'll be a while still...waiting for your table your table to vacate." Huh? But we patiently waited for approx 15min, then we're walked to a table that had been unoccupied the ENTIRE TIME!?
p.s. While waiting to be seated, we heard this same hostess tell other guests the exact. same. thing. Very unprofessional - it would also help if seating wasn't visible from the entry, and if "the line for the night" wasn't on auto-repeat.
My wife and I came for Valentine’s Day. The special was over priced so we ordered off the main menu. The food was good, we ordered the BBQ Fries appetizer which was delicious. She got a salad and I the Ohio meat brisket for the entree and we ordered the brownie for dessert. It was all tasty, and plan to come back. Our server was awesome!!
I had a wonderful evening!
Early Valentines dinner. They had live music, a guy with his electric guitar. It was turned up too loud for our taste. It was hard to hold a conversation. The waitress was ok but not very attentive. The food was great. We will be back.
The nicest word to describe the service we were given is “abrupt.” We dined during restaurant week although at a non-peak hour so they weren’t overwhelmed. It was honestly almost bizarre how uninterested and unfriendly the server was.
That said, the food was tasty and I do like the atmosphere.
Food was very good but kitchen seemed slow even for a busy night. Saw lots of menu choices that would like to try.
