Gastro Pub
Skyler Reeves opened the Barley Hound in May of 2015. With a large dog friendly patio, welcoming casual atmosphere, and outstanding food and drinks it has quickly become one of Prescott’s favorite restaurants.

Barley Hound aims to be at the forefront of the culinary experience while maintaining a welcoming and casual small town vibe. The menu is designed to please adventurous eaters, while also featuring some delicious familiar items. A house ground chuck cheeseburger with fries is just as at home on our menu as our oxtail stew or scotch egg. The menu changes seasonally due to our heavy reliance on local produce.

The beverage program takes its lead from the dinner menu and focuses on local and fresh ingredients. We offer eight Arizona craft beers on draft, a small and eclectic wine list, and an extensive spirits list. Great care is taken in forming our craft cocktail menu, which features fresh, innovative cocktails, as well as classic cocktails made with house sq

    Service was incredibly slow. Dietary needs were not a top priority. Selected Barley Hound due to reviews that they could accommodate a GF diet. They not only don’t have a GF menu and they made it explicit they weren’t interested in meaningfully trying to accommodate. We were able to make do for this occasion, but I won’t be back. Food was also average. Chicken in salad was bland. Beets were served in large slices making it difficult to eat.

    What a gem in downtown Prescott. Good was amazing and the owner and staff treated you like their personal guests. Fries are a MUST try and the Mac and Cheese is to die for. Definitely recommend stopping in while in the area.

    As long as you don’t look at the menu on the website before going here, you will not be too disappointed in the food. The (apparently three years old) menu on the website is not at all reflected in what you get when you arrive. The “market fish” was actually fish and chips, $10 more than the same fried fish in a sandwich. The service was excellent, but the noise was ridiculously loud. Bad music played at very loud levels only makes the staff happy. If you were going to eat there with anyone else, be sure to arrive angry so you don’t have to talk to each other. If the owner wants to start a nightclub, he should do that separately. Overall, a poor experience and we would not return.

    We sat in the upstairs room so the noise level was low. The room itself was so cozy and romantic. We played vinyl albums on the turn table and enjoyed a game of scrabble while we ate. Loved the experience!

    Always an awesome time at the Barley Hound. Tim, the GM, accommodated my food allergy more than I could have anticipated. Service was great, food was outstanding - the entire evening was perfect. Skyler, the owner or the Vivili company, also made rounds to check on all the guests - it was lovely! Looking forward to going back soon.

    Service great. Food is fine. Duck fat fries were ok, nothing special. It’s February and they don’t run the heat. Maybe that’s ok but don’t leave the door open and seat me in a drafty place. Meal gets cold fast where I sat.

    We had reservations for Valentines Day. Arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. My wife had the meatball appetizer and a salad. I had the fried chicken sandwich with fries. Both were delicious. The fried chicken sandwich came with bacon (not listed in the menu). Discounted gift cards are available at Costco for Barley Hound. We’ll be back!

    Amazing experience at this smallish establishment. Wonderful selection of beers, wines and cocktails to start. I had the fish sandwich (best ever) while my wife had the short rib grilled cheese sandwich with balsamic and onion jam. We will be back for sure.

    The most annoying feature about the Barley Hound was the music volume, which we asked four times, to please turn it down. When you have to project your voice across the table just to be heard by your friends, whom you haven’t seen in eight months, it wasn’t pleasant by any means. Also, we needed to use the ONLY wheelchair parking available, which another unplacquered vehicle was occupying. (I believe it was an employee parked there, because it was convenient, as it was still there when we left two hours later). There was zero lighting coming in through a back alley and up the ramp into the building, and potholes and uneven boards in the ramp system, so I had to be aware I didn’t get pitched in the dark. I settled for a salad on the menu, because nothing else looked good, and they only had a small variety to choose from. We won’t be returning or recommending the barley hound.

    We were seated in their back tented ‘Snow Globe’ -decorated very nicely for the holidays. The granddaughters loved it! Only issue was we were the first to be back there for dinner and they didn’t turn on heater until we sat down so it was a bit chilly. We had charred Brussels for appetizer and short rib meal which was very good. Granddaughters had burgers from kid menu and enjoyed it. Was kind of shocked to see they charged us $1.50 for a side of ranch the granddaughters requested. Service was great-was concerned initially they might forget about us in the back but they were on it and food came out quickly!

    I have zero complaints about the Barley Hound. The food was incredible and the warm cocktail options were delicious. I went at the end of December, so it was cold. The seating outside was still available with heaters. As for inside, you’ll need a reservation. It is a quaint, well-loved, home-turned-restaurant and is a must visit if you’re in Prescott. They do have a couple kid options for food, as well!

    Our first time at this restaurant. Loved the ambiance sitting outside. Our meals were delicious. Portion size was generous. The only improvement would have been in the dessert. We ordered two bread puddings for the table pudding was burned and very dry. It was supposed to have Carmel sauce which was missing. Our server brought us 1 small serving after we let her know. We will definitely eat here again but will never order dessert.

    What a terrific spot! The bartender did a great job making paper planes, the food was delish and Jessie, Holly and one other server were attentive, accommodating (Holly brought blankets in case we were chilly outside) and friendly. We ate outside enjoying the lovely evening and the fantastic ambiance of the restaurant. Definitely going back and definitely recommending to everyone!

    Took 3 of my team members out for lunch there as none of them had ever been and I have enjoyed the duck burger there multiple times. Acknowledgment of their birthdays upon arrival was nice, but 4 people that are taking a lunch break from work aren’t going to have a “splash” of champagne at lunch. Unfortunately when we went to order the duck burger meat wasn’t ready so that was off the list. The food was served and it was very good, but we sat there for 35 minutes until we finished our meal and never saw our sever again even though it was extremely slow (2 tables). I had to go inside to pay where the other server was kissing her BF or husband when I walked in. I said I had to come in to pay since the server never showed up and asked if they were going to bring out any small treat for the three birthday people. I was told no, they only offer a “splash” of champagne and no acknowledgement of the poor service. Too bad service wasn’t better. You could have secured 3 more regulars at your restaurant. Now you may have lost one.

    The food here is sulky pretty good so I’m not sure what happened with tonight’s fare. We had reservations for 4:45pm. The restaurant wasn’t busy, and no one cane to take our drink order until well after 5pm. I sent my husband to put our drink order in at the bar to alert them we had no service. When the meal came, both sandwiches the guys ordered were good, but my short ribs were awful as was the polenta. The short ribs were fatty and tough. The polenta was bland. The food here has gotten expensive and I’m not sure I’ll be back.

    Short walk across the street from the downtown courthouse to this beautiful restaurant. We sat outside on the patio with nice strung lights, fire pit and the perfect music playing. The manager as well as the service staff were so friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend and dine there again, while in Prescott.

    We had great service, enjoyed the outdoor dining ambiance and lighting, really liked our food, and appreciated that there was music for a festive atmosphere but without being too loud. We could still comfortably have a conversation. A little pricey but we would return next trip! Great little spot.

    We reserved the patio, but when we arrived, she said we were still booked on the patio, and the weather was cold and windy. They have a limited menu, yet the waiter greeted us advising of all of the things they were out of! One starter, he recommended, we ordered, yet he followed up with “we’re out” as well. The food we got was good, but it was getting pretty cold, and they had NO patio heaters! There are too many nice restaurants in Prescott, so no plans to go again soon, but may try next summer, when weather is better, as the patio is very cute!
