Food and service were very good. Atmosphere was that of an upgrade to a Micro Brew/ Ale House/ Pub. I highly recommend.

Went to hear band Area 52. They are always good. We were kind of far back for having a reserved table. Turned out okay though.

We enjoyed our meal very much. Appetizers, salad, entrees and dessert were very good. Our only complaint was Maryland crab soup was very salty. Service was excellent. Restaurant got very crowded and noisy which was OK because we were leaving. Ambience is just OK. This restaurant is basically a Bar with good food.

On Father’s Day morning, we went to three chain restaurants and the lines were so long! My daughter thought of the Barrel House in Fallston. We were able to be seated immediately! The menu had excellent choices and when our orders arrived we couldn’t believe how full the large plates were. Everything we ordered was delicious. Our favorite was the Sweet Cream Pancakes! Our server, Chelsea, was helpful, friendly and efficient!

Service was excellent and servers are very friendly and polite. I had crabs last weekend and they were some of the best crabs I have ever eaten (and believe me, I haven't eaten a lot of crabs). I usually get the Cobb salad with grilled chicken which is excellent and very filling! They have some really great bands here, but I do wish they would have an awning over the band - it can get pretty hot while the sun is shining on the stage.
All in all, a great experience - I always come back!

World class crabs. Great service. Music way too loud, causes patrons to yell to talk which raises the volume even more.

Being mothers day, it took a little longer to receive our orders. The waitress was very attentive and checked on us often.
All of our orders (four of us) were received at the same time which is always a plus.
The brunch food was (breakfast items) was tasty.

Having eaten at the Fallston Barrel House before, we had no concerns meeting my son here again for a Mother's Day celebration one day early, since it is a good midway point between where we live, and he lives. They were busy, but that did not impact service, which was very good. The waiter was attentive, and checked back regularly with us, even when it became apparent that something must have gone wrong with our entrees when after 55 minutes we still didn't have them. He was very apologetic, and even comped us a round of drinks while we waited. When the food came, the quality and appearance was definitely not consistent. There was nothing wrong with mine - a filet mignon entree, with everything on the plate appearing freshly prepared, but my son's plate was another matter entirely. His filet mignon was sitting on a dried out puddle left behind by another steak of a different size and shape entirely, and his mashed potatoes were absolutely yellow and covered with a "skin," while mine were white and soft. They didn't even look like they could have come out of the same pot, nor taste like it (he didn't eat them. . . .) The appearance of the entire plate was quite unappetizing. My husband's chicken cheesesteak WOULD have been good if it hadn't sat for a very long time, but by the time he got it, it was a congealed cold lump on a roll instead of a warm melty cheesesteak. Neither my husband or son said anything to the waiter, because neither wanted to wait even longer for more food to be prepared, but they were very disappointed. The one positive was that the crab cake appetizer was very good. The brussell sprout appetizer was "meh" - too much barbecue sauce on them. All in all, not a very good experience. May be time to look for another halfway meeting point for future dinners.

Went to dinner with a friend last Friday night. Service was great, but the food was disappointing. I ordered a turkey wrap and it was horrible. I planned to just not eat it, but the waiter insisted I exchange it for something else. I ordered the nachos and crab dip, which was a better choice, but just ok. They had a musician playing music on the bar side. It was way too loud for such a small dining area! We sat on the dining side of the restaurant and had to shout at each other to communicate. I can’t even imagine how loud it was on the bar side!! It sounded like they had speakers in the dining side pumping the music in there. If that’s the case, they need to turn down the music. My voice sounded horse by the time I got home from shouting. Bands and loud music are awesome in bars in the late evening, but not while dining at 7pm. I really wanted to like it there, but I was not impressed.

I think they should have the better beer on tap (I was told it was like 16 different draft/ craft beers upstairs) - in the hall downstairs as well. With the name "Barrell House" any of the specialty beers need to be available for a show - especially with table servers. I can see if people had to go upto the bar to order drinks or a beer tub attendant like they have at most shows why 16 different draft beers would not make sense. Thanks. I hope to come up for more good shows - Never Never was excellent! That's for sure.
