    It wasn’t a busy evening but service (especially food) was very slow. Drinks came slow, even tap beer and water. No crayons for the kids. Not given enough menus for people. Lots of small things that would be ok if the service made up for it. Was not a game night or anything special going on.

    Great view of the ball field. We sat by the window. They were out of a couple items on the menu that I wanted to order so that was a bummer. Cheese curds were amazing, fried pickles were okay, pastrami sandwich was good.

    I went in the off-season, the place was relatively empty, and I still had a great time. I’m not exactly sure why, but the food was great, the service was amazing, and it just felt good to be there, for some reason. Zero complaints. And this was very unexpectedly better than I anticipated. They have a nice thing going here; check it out for yourself.

    This was my first time at Barrel Yard, and it was amazing! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was incredible. We went on a bingo night and it was so much fun! Two of the five of us at the table won bingo prizes. We will definitely be back. I will be sure to recommend others to come to Barrel Yard too!

    This was a great way to see the Milwaukee Brewers outfield in the process of being replaced while enjoying some very good food. My wife and I split the walleye fish fry and it was delicious. We also had a cup of the beer cheese soup which was delicious too. Our friends both had the pastrami sandwich which was large and tasted great. My only complaint is that for a micro brewery they only carried Coors as a NA beer. I’ve tasted better.

    We made reservations for Bingo and it was so loud we couldn't hear any of the numbers called. We ordered Chicken Littles with no coleslaw and they came with coleslaw, so we had to send them back. The second time around, there were burn marks on the edges of the biscuits. We resignated ourselves to just dip fries in my Beer Cheese Soup. After one game of Bingo, the noise was so incredibly loud that even with our reservation for a table during Bingo, we couldn't hear anything. It was so expensive and we eneded up leaving halfway through the second game. Extremely disappointing. The price is exorbant compared to the low quality of food ambiance and service.

    The food was delicious. We had cheese curds and burgers. But it was pretty dead in there for a Friday night. And our service was incredibly slow. it took quite a while for our server to come to our table to greet us. And took a while to get a water refill. Also took quite some time to get our bill and pay it. Was a bit shocked the service was so slow, considering there were not a lot of tables.

    A very cool place and view of the stadium, this is why we decided to check this place out. Kids also ate free. They sat us where the roof was leaking, they were accommodating and told us we could sit wherever. No crayons for kids menus, and kids drinks were not included, no Chocolate milk either. I got a soda for $4 and no free refills which I thought was a lot. Food was ok, not many choices to choose from. We tried the burger and the Chicken Bisquit Sandwich, nothing really special about it, plates looked like they came from my great grandmas kitchen, would be cool to have a baseball theme to them- $8 for a bowl of Kraft macaroni - something they didn’t even make- seemed like a lot- and that’s all you got- just a bowl of noodles. My other son got the chicken nuggets and that came with fruit or fries. I am glad we came when kids ate free otherwise I would have not been happy for how much I spent at this mediocre restaurant. We will sadly not be back.

    Amanda, I am so sorry to hear about your experience but appreciate your honest review. I am going to send you a private message, as I would like to learn some more details from your visit. You should not have been charged for the kids drinks or refills on your soda. I will work with our team here to ensure the staff are trained on the menu offerings and promotions. Thank you again for letting us know of the issues so that they can be resolved.

    My server was not aware that my choice on the menu was ‘sold out’. Menu selection is a bit limited for dinners, I ended up with a burger. As for the question of whether or not I would recommend to a friend, maybe, but check the menu ahead AND ask when you order if what you decide on is available.

    Hostess on 12/26 was wonderful. Jacque our server was great! She gave us pointers on how to get a table at the bull pen seats and how game day reservations work! Loved the artwork and Leinenkugel's charm! Bar manager made an exception for my flight, offered me the last bit of carmel popcorn brew and also gave the half off flight.

    Amazing place. My wife and I went with my one year old son. Now, we went in November so not in baseball season. The place was quiet and room for my son to walk/toddle around outside of the restaurant. The food was fantastic with big portions. The service was fantastic.

    We dined on an away game day so it was quiet. While the food we ended up with was good they were out of several items we initially asked for. It actually became comical. We were also not told that they didn't accept cash which should have been communicated to us ahead of time. Overall we had a good experience and will return.
    J. Leinenkugel's Barrel YardResponded on September 3, 2023
    Hi KathleenA, thank you for the review. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the food, and the server should have let you know, upon asking if you have visited us before, they are trained to let you know the stadium as a whole is cashless. We can't wait to have you back for a great experience!

    My husband, young daughter and I reserved an outside table on a Saturday for lunch for our anniversary. Since it was a non-game day the place was quiet but we preferred that. Everything was great from the service, food, and perfect weather to have the roof open. We really enjoyed the food and bonus anniversary cake at the end! Would highly recommend!

    Loved the menu! Had the incredible hanging bacon to start things off, followed by Pa’s pastrami and the walleye. Topped it off with a brandy slush “to go!” Our waitress, Grace, was awesome!
