Cool place in Carmel. Unique dishes. Had the scallops and risotto. Perfect! Also had the fillet. Very good. Excellent service. Only minus is the fact that they don’t have a full bar.
Neighborhood Gem! Dined for Anniversary. Lovely atmosphere. Service and food excellent. No more chains, staying local. Price point unmatched for quality and taste!!!! We will be back🤗
I loved everything on the menu and had a hard time choosing. The meal was exceptional! I had the beet and pear salad, and salmon for my entrée. It was exquisite!
First, the food was fantastic. We enjoyed everything we ordered and will definitely return. We always hate when reviews say a place is not kid-friendly because, from our experience, this means they don't have chicken fingers. Our son eats everything and we continue to encourage him to eat that way and try new things by taking him to places that serve a variety of things. Stompin Barley was a great choice for him as well (4 years old). It was a little harder without a booster or high chair, but everyone was very friendly and accommodating to him and our 4 month old. This place is generally an adult restaurant that can serve as a romantic date night, but we loved it for our family as well.
This is a bit of a hidden gem because it is away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet shopping center at 146th and River Road, tucked away in the back. The name makes it sound like it is a burger joint, but it isn't at all. You can eat very healthy, small plates, entrees, you name it. Something for everyone.
Great food, great staff, great place! Recently spent a weekend in Indy and came back on Saturday after a perfect experience on Friday night. Highly recommended.
I do not make bad reviews lightly, or often, and always take a day or two after the experience to reflect on what truly transpired, to be sure my review is fair. This experience was so negative, that two days later it seems appropriate to share it. We were celebrating a birthday, and in our party were 4 adults and 3 children, ranging in ages from 6 - 10. We arrived and ordered starters, of shrimp cocktail and the barley board (meat and cheese). They were out of both of these items (which ended up being surprising, because the shrimp served later in the shrimp and grits meal would have been appropriate for usage in the shrimp cocktail.) We placed an alternative starter order, the ahi tuna poke.
In my experience, ahi tuna is bright red and fresh looking. What we were served was a questionable gray, but was edible. When I questioned the freshness, I was assured it was fresh.
We placed our meal orders, and the kitchen was down a chef, so our meals took a very long time, which was hard considering we had children with us (after reading several reviews it was a family friendly restaurant.) When the children's orders did come out first, we were stunned to see the youngest child's Salmon BLT consisted of sashimi-style salmon (which our server should have mentioned, as it was clearly being ordered by the youngest boy.)
The kicker was the bacon was COMPLETELY TRANSLUCENT AND RAW.
Our server, Kyle, did take it back and have it recooked.
But they served raw bacon to a child.
After that, it continued downhill. The steaks were chewy and not of high quality. Our $26 scallop "large plates" consisted of 3 scallops and a few pieces of asparagus.
The value for the money was not there. The food was sub par. Our server tried to make amends, explain, and apologize, but the comedy of errors was outside of his control. They did comp us one round of drinks which was kind, but could not salvage the experience.
I emphatically do not recommend this restaurant.
relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, subdued lighting, delicious entree. Looking forward to my next week.
Great food and service. Their wine list is very good.
Stompin’ Barley is one of our favorite restaurants! Delicious food with a fantastic atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Quiet and easy to have a family discussion.
Only concern was small dinner proportions and expensive drinks.
Great service. Great food. We will be back soon.
Service was great! Love the option of small plates for lighter eating. Interesting menu items
Really have enjoyed everything about his place since it opened! Great food and fantastic attention paid by servers. Menu changes each time we there and have always found something great!
We had a great filet and a wedge salad! The food quality was great and we had excellent service.
This is a neighborhood gem! Elegant yet casual, comfortable and welcoming inside! Small menu but something for everyone! Have visited several times and have enjoyed all the food we have ordered! The owner is very personable and always greets the guests. Kyle is the greatest server! Give it a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed!
It was truly wonderful and we will be going back soon.
Very good choices for the limited menu. They don't serve liquor - just beer and wine, but the food makes up for it. Great quality. The dishes we tried had something a little unique about the way they were prepared, which made it a better experience, too
Good food with good service. We will be back.
This restaurant is a true “neighborhood gem”! It is beautifully decorated, with relaxing, comfortable seating . they have an impressive wine list and delicious food. I had tenderloin sliders—delicious! Perfect cook and flavor. I like the fact that they offer small plate, in addition to their full size menus. You can go for a casual week night dinner or for a special celebration!
Date night with good friends.
Very nice ambience,great seating.Food service was very slow for a place that was less than half full.Beef tenderloin sliders ordered by 2 of us medium rare were well done and dry.Beet salad with pears and cheese was virtually devoid of beets and pears.Pork belly egg rolls and Caprese salad with salmon was very good.After discussing with our server,we heard the slow service was due to being short staffed in the kitchen.Interesting but means nothing to a customer.In response to our comments on the poorly prepared entrees,we were asked if we would like them re-prepared.We declined.No offer of removal from our check was made.In short,we have tried them but will not return.
Great food! Great Ambiance! All in all a very good dining experience.
They were not busy when we arrived and it took about 10 minutes before anyone even greeted us or gave us a menu ( there was no one at the host station and a sign that said seat yourself) There were three servers at the bar who saw us come in.
They were out of burgers (on a Saturday at 5:45?)
Once we got waited on and got our food it was very good. Maybe some glitches to work out and training to be done?
We have eaten here several times before and only twice had a negative experience. Once was with an inexperienced or badly trained waitress and the second was when we ordered the pork tenderloin sliders which had a minuscule amount of meat in them but it was tasty. Our food has been on the whole been very good here but Saturday we had a young waitress and she was not well trained. In a restaurant like Stompin Barley you shouldn’t need to have to ask for more silverware. My husband had the Caesar Salad which was good and I had the Wedge Salad which was also good. I had the Shrimp and Grits . It was Florentine on Saturday and whilst good it could have been even better with a little more sauce. My husband had the Scallops which were only served with Asparagus for $26 - Some New potatoes or pasta would have been a good addition. We find the wine list a little pricey and nearly always have the Cune Rioja.
A hidden gem! The name leads you to think it’s more of a beer and burger place, but the menu, wine list and ambiance are lovely! Beautiful interior, good service! Food for the most part was great. Would definitely go back.
I reserved my table online but called to ask if they were baby friendly as my group had a 1 year old and they said they accommodate minors but there were no high chairs. Someone then called me back Bc the owner offered to bring in a high chair from home which was extremely thoughtful. The waitress was amazing and sneaky. I kept grabbing my glass of water and getting surprised because it was somehow always full. Very kind people. The interior is beautiful and modern. My only problem was with the food. It was presented beautifully but had no flavor. And the portions were very small. The desserts seemed to be premade or something. This business has potential but might need to up their food game.
Great waiter but... would have been better off not opening... the great truffle fries we’re oily. Could not get ice tea. Food wrong temp on steaks. Heard the chef left from last time we were here... brought 2 year old no high chair was told they were looking to be a 21 and up location but nothing on here or at the rest. Said that. Look they have a great idea and a lot of the food was great but the downside was huge tonight. Will miss the crab soup but tonight’s was very good. The owner needs to set the standards then make them work, tonight was a great effort by almost zero staff! Will give it a try again as it was great the first time ...
Phenomenal dinner, great service, zero kids, great place for our anniversary
We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed but we had the Tenderloin Sliders on Friday night and there was very little pork in them. There was only enough meat in two for one slider. Quality was fine but I am not sure it was pork tenderloin - more like roast pork. We will definitely return. Waitress Gretchen (?) was very good.
Nice restaurant. Food was delicious and presentation very nice. Nice room and ambience. Upper scale dining vs. the name, which sounds like a brew pub.
was really looking forward to trying this place but should have know Easter was not the time to do it - prime rib was undercooked & chewy, salmon was extremely salty, alfredo was sticky & bacon was greasy + NO dessert, not even a cookie :(( but decor was attractive & food presentation was nice, may try again later but not at the top of my list, sorry
The food was fabulous! There were 4 of us dining and each of us ordered the 6 oz. fillet. with a salad. The steak was cooked perfectly for each of us and the presentation was outstanding! We loved the wedge salad as well as the Caesar salad...both were delicious. There was a great selection of wine to choose from. My husband and I love this place...it's one of our favorites! Try the Shrimp & Grits or the Salmon or actually anything on the menu...you won't be disappointed.
Food was excellent. Would like to see expanded menu. We don’t eat fish or pork, so there only two other choices
First visit and very enjoyable. We ordered from the Taste of Hamilton County prix fixe menu
($36). The value was amazing. My husband had the octopus appetizer, Korean ribs and strawberry parfait and I had she-crab soup, salmon, and flourless coffee cake. Both of us were delighted with every dish. The coffee cake was more chocolate-y than coffee flavored so they could call it flourlesss mocha cake and thereby capture the coffee and chocolate lovers' vote.
We ordered a bottle of red Conundrum to drink and were tickled to find it was a liter instead of 75cl. The screw cap came into its own, so now enjoy this easy wine tomorrow night as well.
Gretchen, our waitress knew a lot and quickly returned with answers to our most penetrating questions. Kudos to an incredible chef.
We all enjoyed our food selections and the decor and ambiance are very nice.
Outstanding food! The preparation and presentation are always excellent! We took newbie's with us and they were very happy with their choices. Continue to hope more people find it and become devoted to it so it doesn't go away!!
Bring back the butternut squash caprese! So good! Love it and locale
The food is amazing and they offer a nice variety.
We enjoyed two salads and wine. You have the option of salads, small plates and full entrees so they can satisfy any appetite level. The menu changes seasonally. It does not have ordinary meat and potatoes type food. If you like to try new things, this is the place to go in NE Carmel, easily accesible from west Fishers and south Noblesville too
