Our second visit with two other couples was as enjoyable as the first. Service was superb and the wine recommendations were great. All three couples found the food wonderful and the ambience conducive to a pleasant evening.

Very welcoming and beautifully furnished. Waitstaff were well versed on the menu and had great wine recommendations. Service was gracious and punctual. The menu choices were sufficiently varied for all of our group and all selections were prepared perfectly. We look forward to our next visit.

My husband & I dine out often and this restaurant is one of our favorites! The food is always delicious, the staff is always welcoming & the atmosphere is cozy and sophisticated.

Their new menu offers dishes you won’t find anyplace else. On our most recent visit, my husband ordered the Shrimp & White Bean Cassoulet and found it to be wonderfully rich and flavorful. I ordered the 3 oz. Beef Tenderloin with Cheddar Grits and it was fabulous! The steak was cooked perfectly, the grits were so creamy & delicious and the presentation was very appealing. We shared a wedge salad and took home 2 pieces of Egg Nog Cheesecake...yum!

Bravo to Chef Ginnie for the wonderful new menu and bravo to Dick & Alesia for creating a dining experience that always goes beyond great food and great service!

We love Stompin Barley and were delighted to hear that they are changing the name to Redux soon. Always concerned that the name failed to give the right impression of the sophisticated nature of the place and the food. New chef and new menu proved as good as in the past if not better! If you haven't tried it or haven't found it (hard to spot on the inside of a strip center) YOU SHOULD!!

The entrees were a hit or miss as far as quality and service. The entrees all came out
at separate times and one of the entrees was served 20 minutes after everyone else
received their food. The entree was poorly cooked and had no flavor. Another entree was rushed because
it was served lukewarm. For the price point the food did not compare to quality! Our server was
very helpful and I did not feel the poor food was her fault.

This happens to be a hidden neighborhood gem. I would not have known about it if not for my Veterinarian visits near by. Plenty of parking. Easy access for sure! Awesome to be on Open Table. We are only a mile away and feel very fortunate to have this gem so close by. Wonderful food selections. There is much for me to choose from on the menu and the wine has never disappointed. Truly love it. We ate there 2 nights ago and I just made reservations for another in a couple weeks, so we can introduce some Fishers friends to Stompin' Barley. The name made me think it was a "bar food" restaurant, but oh my no! Lovely wine glasses too :-)

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.

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.

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!
