Food was good. We went on a Wednesday without realizing there would be bingo. It was a blast! The hosts were a lot of fun!

Good selections of beers and specials! Wings were good and the Monkey Cheesy Bread as well! The Nashville Chicken Sandwich was ok bread tasted old and hard and the fries tasted like reheated fries and old. Overall not bad. Service was great!

Went here to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Ordered the broken brisket dip meat was very well cooked! Wings were delicious and nachos were addicting. For drinks I was able to try the Jungle Juice, delicious with a punch behind it is how I would describe the experience! House made donuts were unlike anything I’ve tasted. Overall great place we will back.

Had a great evening of drinks and dinner at Broken Barrel. There were 5 of us - family and friends, and we sat outside in a large comfy booth on the outdoor patio. What a fun time! It was Friday happy hour, so our starters and some of our drinks were specially priced. All of the food was terrific. If you think this is just a bar for drinking, you are way wrong. The food is creative and wonderful. Lots of really interesting starters - I would recommend the cheese curds and the crispy cauliflower. Our table also shared a large order of wings. There are a bunch of interesting sauces to select from, and our platter included two different ones. The menu says the wings have won awards, and we could all see why. Service was friendly, and the patio is a great option for outdoor dinning. Highly recommended!

Nice neighborhood sports bar and outdoor space. Kitchen seemed a little slow. Food was tasty and would prefer a few healthier options.

I was there for a family get-together; there were 5 adults. Our table shared a bunch of different appetizers. They were all wonderful. We tried two different kinds of wings, and both were excellent. The Angry Tots appetizer is very unique and tasty. I would also recommend the Crispy Cauliflower. You just don't find unique appetizers like these at a typical restaurant. At first Broken Barrel might just sound like a snazzy bar, but what sets it apart is the great food and the very interesting menu. For dessert the Plantains Foster is yummy. All-in-all, a fun and tasty evening!

Food was good and ambience was casual, but fun. Unfortunately the service was horrible. I will not be going back.

Love the Vanderpump Mondays! All the TVs were set to the show, with TV themed drinks and a great atmosphere! Just wish they would have turned the TVs up a bit louder.

A wonderful neighborhood restaurant! We were there with two young kids and the servers were awesome with them. The kids meals have plenty of food and good options to choose from. All of the adults meals were great as well. We had the kale salad, the pulled pork sandwich and the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. We were all very pleased. A great beer selection seals the deal - we will be frequent guests!

The food was not great. Half our food didn’t come out together and after waiting for one of the meals the order wasn’t correct. Service very slow.

Way too loud... DJ during commercial breaks of sports games BLASTS music to the point you can't hear the person next to you, even if they're shouting.

After a short wait, despite online booking, we were given a booth in the rear, which was nice and less noisy than further forward. The food was good...nice take on nachos. Kale salad was delicious and the teens gave the burgers the thumbs up.
