I cannot fairly rate the food as they did not honor our reservation. When we arrived, they said they had no tables and no one was leaving any time soon. They did not offer a kind solution. They just said the reservation system should not have allowed so many reservations. I don’t know if this is true or if they seated people who did not have reservations. We did not arrive late. It was very disappointing. We left and ate elsewhere.

Best place to eat with friends & family in LaGrange. Whether we dine inside or in the outside courtyard this place rocks with its reasonably priced meals to its exotic drinks created each month.
Service great ! We love Cristina and have had an enjoyable time every visit throughout the year. Yes, Corona19 restrictions in place so you feel safe in this establishment.

Our server was great. Appetizers were very good but our meals were just so so.(fish tacos and chicken pot pie). I would go back though to try different dishes.

The bartender was very friendly and provided good service. It wasn’t crowded which made us comfortable because of COVID.

Met a friend here for drinks and early dinner. I had the Presbyterian whiskey drink and the turkey chili. Both were great!

The appetizer pretzel was awesome! My entree, the meatloaf sundae was too spicy for my taste. I would like to try this restaurant again & try some other food.

First time dining here with three friends—we were all very impressed.

Good choices were varied and everything we ordered was excellent. A bowl, chicken sandwich, veggie burger and tacos uniformly tasty and fresh.

Look forward to going back again soon.

The drinks are good and well prepared. The wait staff is attentive and courteous. They cleaned the place up and made it brighter inside. So why is this just average?

The food. I had fish and chips and I knew i was getting ocean perch. Not a fish of choice for fish and chips. The bigger problem was they appeared to fry it in old oil. The fish was very dark, not burnt . The fries were no different old oil, bad food.

My wife had the apple grilled cheese. That dish was very good. Tasty not burnt in fact for me i would have preferred it grilled a little more.

Overall, not a bad place but they need to improve their game if they want to stay in LaGrange. Too many other places are better right now.

This was my first time sitting to have a meal at Barrel House Social, and it was fantastic. They followed all protocol perfectly and had amazing attitudes to boot. We sat outside which impacted the ambiance and noise a bit but my guess is during non-COVID brunch times, it is probably very lively. I had the classic avocado toast, which was AMAZING.
I found myself thinking about throughout the rest of the day. And you can't go wrong with bottomless mimosas. Barrel House Social is a definite!
