We had dinner with friends who have only been here once for apps. They were very happy with the food and service .Our server was Corrine and she was very attentive and had great timing through the night . Food was great .Our favorite's were the Bacon wrapped jalapeno meatloaf , shrimp and grits and bbq brussel sprouts. Flavors in the dishes make you want more. I think they had around 10 beers on tap and quite a few bottles beers so you should be able to find something to your liking.Corrine was quick with recommendations based on what I liked and offered samples until I decided on a beer.

My husband and I are 40 and we were the youngest people there. But the food is good and reasonably priced. Try the key lime crush!

Loved the band Blynd Ambition! The only problem with it outside was they were not facing the crowd. Our waitress Carly was awesome!

We’ve eaten here on several occasions and our food has always been great. This was Father’s Day and there was very large party which drove up the noise level a bit. I tried the crab soup this time and it was great. I highly recommend Barrel House.

We were downstairs for the band Eclipse which is a fantastic Journey tribute band. The waitress was excellent. Very attentive. We never had to go looking for her, she always knew when to check on us and I noticed that she was hustling throughout the night. I ordered a crab cake sandwich and it was very good. I can say that whether you are upstairs in the bar, down stairs in the hall or out on the deck, it is a good time. Thanks for a great evening. I would highly recommend the Barrel House to my friends.

The outside is way too loud next to the main road and is very outdated. The food was just okay, way overpriced for the quality.

Bartender didn't know how to make cocktails. Bloody Mary had a sugar rim underneath the Old Bay rim. Reading recipe cards for every drink. Totally overwhelmed on a not busy Mother's Day. Nice place that needs serious help. Our waitress was nice though.

Food was decent, portions were full. I had the ribeye medium, it cooked as ordered. Wife had the fish and chips she said they were good but not great. Service was timely and our server checked back several times to see if we needed anything.

We were looking for a new dining experience for my daughter's 35th birthday and this was her choice. The food was extremely disappointing. I had stuffed shrimp and quite frankly the crabmeat was 90% filler and very tasteless. The shrimp were advertised as Large but were medium at best. One member of our group ordered cream of crab soup but sent it back...it looked like and the consistency was that of seasoned water. Two other entree's came with fries that smelled as if the oil was old, huge turn-off, very unappetizing. The waitress was ok...she have very little personality and seemed in a hurry but there were only 4 other tables occupied, and multiple other servers. The ambiance was noisy and lots of staff congregation in the dining room, very impersonal atmosphere. The bar looked and sounded very happening... a band was getting ready to play but the dining room wasn't inviting for a dining experience and definitely not for the price that we paid for the meal. The best part about our dinner was a drink that I ordered from their drink menu....but, you can never go wrong with Captain Morgan. We have no desire to eat there again and now neither do many of our friends and family - sorry!

This restaurant has good food. I especially recommend the chicken Chesapeake -?you won’t be disappointed. Also they had a band & cover charge was waived since we dined at restaurant. Great local place for a night out.

Food was delicious! Our waiter could not have been more helpful in every way. When I hesitated over my choice of sides, he recommended their "barbequed brussels sprouts," which were so unusual and delicious. We would go again in a minute!

The food was just so so. I had stuffed shrimp that was very salty. Would not order again. The “hall” needs to invest in some better chairs and some decorating. We all felt like our chairs were going to collapse. On the bright side great band and great waitress.

Pretty disappointed. I actually made reservations for 8 online for 7:45. Everyone got there on time even a little early. They weren't ready, busy but not ready. Hostess asked nicely if we wanted to be seated downstairs where they had a no cover band. We turned that down, preferring to be seated upstairs. After close to 20 min standing next to Hostess, they asked again and we accepted because we had an 86 yr with us. Carefully descended steps to lower level which looked more like a Bull Roast setup complete with folding chairs (nobody bothered to fill us in on that). Placed our dinner order which was mostly sandwiches, there was an unusually long wait then 5 entrees were delivered with cold fries, and we waited another 10 full minutes for the last two entrees. By then the 1st 5 sandwiches were cold also. Kelly was delightful but cant be held responsible for a slow kitchen. Our 1st trip to Barrel House did not make a good impression.

The food was way to expensive for the quality. It’s a great place if you go to just have a few drinks and listen to live music but I don’t recommend the dining due to the cost compared to the quality.

Great place to meet friends after work for dinner- or a family night dinner! Bonnie Jo was a great server, and the food was fantastic! It was a bit cool by the windows- almost like they were cracked open a bit, but nothing terrible. Great evening overall!!

We had a Valentines special so in all fairness it wasn’t from their regular menu. The crab dip was very runny but good flavor, not much crab. Our rib eyes were very poor quality cuts and very tough. Obviously a frozen meat. The food was brought out so quick I didn’t even touch my salad. The 2 waitresses were so busy and the 2 bus boys really didn’t have the knowledge to manage tables. One more waiter would have been better so each table had more attention to details. However the wait staff was very nice and they did remove the steak from our bill. They seem to have a good customer base but possibly more for bar and bar food. If they just freshened up the menu items for meals they would do much better business.
If you’re looking for drinks and apps for the band in the basement, good choice. Definitely not for foodies!!

The place wasn't crowded to start with so when we were seated at 815 and didn't get our main course till 945 we knew it wasn't going to be good. Had to ask where our appetizer was after 30 minutes, never had silverware, and when the food did come it was cold, over cooked for a few and under cooked for the others, and never recieved my salad. We complained to the manager and she did knock our bill down but it was still obsurb that it was that bad....

We went to hear the band. We made reservations for diner at 745. We got there at 730, we were told it would be 30 minutes. Not a big deal. at 815 we still hadn't been called. Hostess said she didn't know where the other hostess was, and she didn't know when we would be seated. Clearly they were understaffed and not prepared for the crowd that came in to hear "Never Never". We don't know if the food is any good because we left, didn't pay 10 to go in to hear the band because we were told it was standing room only. Since we hadn't eaten we didn't want to stand up for a couple hours. All in all, it was pretty disappointing.
