Had the shrimp and fettuccine. It had no flavor. Ordered a Maker's on the rocks and was charged a dollar extra for a round ice ball. We were party of three and had a 630 reservation. Waited a half an hour to be seated while two parties of five that arrived after us were seated first and 4 parties of two coming way after us were seated. Once seated we waited literally 10 minutes for water. Ordered drinks and appetizers. The appetizers arrived first.. What else can I say.

Wonderful restaurant with amazing service and delicious food! You can tell that care is put into everything. We went for our two year anniversary, and the manager as well as our server made us feel so special and appreciated for choosing to spend our special day there. There are time limits on the tables because of the pandemic, but it doesn't feel pushy or like they are kicking you out. Such a wonderful ambiance. Love, love, love this place...it's a new fav!

Two comments: 1) Had a barrel bourbon old fashioned, but not sure of the quality of the bourbon. Didn't seen to have much flavor after initial swallows. 2). Waiter was great (Oscar) -- should give him a raise. Burger was one of the best I've had -- ever. 3). I just can't get over that it's in the middle of a parking lot. We sat outside -- pandemic seating. A fine view of two big box stores and cars parked feet away. If I return, it'll be after the pandemic subsides -- so we can sit inside.

The food was excellent and I was happy to see they have a nice draft selection now! The server was great, very personable and attentive. The only concern I have is my wife had called a few days before and asked to be seated on the south balcony outside. At that time they said it would be no problem. When we got there they said they cannot seat more than 5 out on that side, which I understand, but concerned the person didn't tell my wife when she called (Our party was 6, which did not change). We did not want to sit on the west side due to the sun, which is really bad at that time of day, plus it was pretty hot that day. They offered us to sit inside, which we really were not crazy about, but decided to do anyway. The staff was very accommodating and seated us away from others. So really the only concern was I wish they would have told us when we called beforehand.

Everything was wonderful, as usual. Our group of 6 was supposed to eat here the night everything was “shutting down” in March. With outdoor seating, this was an obvious choice to try to stay safe. Oscar worked with us, made great recommendations. He was one of the best waiters we have ever had, anywhere! We will be back

This was my first time at The Barrel Club and it definitely won’t be my last. My husband and I decided to check it out since we live down the street and wanted some good food and drinks. Our waitress was so helpful in helping us on our decision for food and drinks, she also gave us a sample of the apple pie moonshine (which is sooo smooth and delicious!) I also love the fact that our temperature was taken as soon as we stepped in the door. It was great to know they care about their staff and customers health and safety. We learned that the restaurant is owned by a family in Oak Lawn, so it’s great to support a local family owned business. My overall experience was amazing! I highly recommend.

Stopped in to have a bite to eat while in the neighborhood. I had the salmon and my husband had the steak Oscar. We ate it all. It was very good. Extra points for the awesome and very well priced cocktail flights! Loved them! Service was great and food came out quickly. We will be back.

Went for brunch and it was an awesome experience, especially being that it was their first brunch opening since COVID closing. Food was great, service was very friendly and all necessary precautions were taken to assure a healthy dining experience. Well done.
