This was my second visit to The Barrel Club. I thought we were coming for dinner, but upon arrival we were given brunch menus and told that due to Mother's day. They changed the time for dinner to began. I was a little bummed by that because I raved to my family about how good the dinner was and they were looking forward to it. So, we ended up ordering brunch. Burger, chicken club sandwich, steak and eggs and shrimp and grits. Oh, an appetizer of stuffed mushrooms. The food was good and those mushrooms were very delicious. I also ordered the flight. I tried the Barrel Amaretto Sour - delicious, the Apple Cider mule- delicious, and the Forbidden Fruit-not for me, weak.

The restaurant gave roses to all the mothers. Sweet gesture.

Overall we had a nice time and I will be returning.

We were there to celebrate Mother’s Day. A mishap in the kitchen caused our food to come out later than it should have, but the manager came over and apologized and offered us free drinks. By the time the manger came back with drinks the food was there! Everything was delicious!

The food was as expected...decent breakfast food. I was more disappointed at the service provided by our server. I don’t have a problem with the automatic 18% gratuity however I do feel servers should still provide the minimum service such as straws with your drinks, napkins with your meal, putting in your food as you order it, etc. We had a group of 8 where we were split into groups of 4 to a table which meant two separate servers two separate checks. Our server didn’t find it necessary to put our food in as we ordered - something simple as a bacon cheeseburger became a cheeseburger with bacon flavored aioli. The server for the 2nd table (Ken) saw how important it was for our table to have drinking straws and napkins. My server 1 star but Ken (server for table 2 who had a completely separate table and tab) gets 5 stars!

We were seated at the reserved time. The atmosphere was pleasant, food was good and drinks were top of the line. I ordered two entrees: salmon and Amish chicken, bith were great. The stuffed mushrooms were good (the sauce added more flavor). The flight options were really a good add to the dining experience, we received a complimentary apple barrel whiskey which was nice close to the evening. We did sit by a loud party with a loud waiter, that kind of dampened the experience, but overall I will visit again.

Finding a sweet spot on the Southside of Chicago is hard to come by. So, when I found this gem tucked away behind another popular food chain, I was pleasantly surprised! From the host, to the server, meal, drinks and dessert, everything was outstanding! The added bonus for me is not having to trek downtown to find a legit establishment with a great food menu that specializes in Whiskey. The chef really takes care in using the freshest ingredients on every plate. And, kudos for a courteous and professional staff. The owners and chef really have scored with bringing supreme class and chic experience south. Not sure which cocktail to choose from, try their cocktail flight. This is a great spot for 30+ crowd. And, they have live music on the patio during the summer. I hope to visit again soon!

Arrived 12 mins late for 8:15 reservation. Was told reservation was canceled and couldn’t seat us until maybe 9:15. Went to the car to wait and saw that Opentable had 8:30 and 8:45 reservation showing available. Called from the car and was told I could come back in and be seated. Went back in and the hostess said I should have never been told that by her coworker and we could not be seated, despite me seeing empty tables. She insisted I had to wait until 9:15. She was extremely rude and I will never dine there again.

We came here for a girls night out and our server Oscar was phenomenal. He made the night just so much more fun. The flight of drinks option is really cool. And the bonus was at the food was good too. I really just went there for drinks and fun. Their Brussel sprouts are amazing and be warned when you order the chicken, it's actually an entire rotisserie chicken. I got the salmon and it was delicious too. It's more of an upbeat atmosphere so if you're looking for a fun night out with friends I would definitely recommend this spot.

Everything was ok - very pricey for "ok", though. Four entrees, four drinks, an appetizer and the bill was $200. The drink prices are reasonable, but the entrees are pretty high. Interior is nice, lights were very, very bright over the tables.

It was our first time at The Barrel Club snd I was so looking forward to it. I made reservations, but was seated right by the kitchen. A little disappointing. I know times are different, but was not happy sitting there. Food was very good along with the drinks. We will come back after the outside tables open up.

Food was either undercooked or overcooked and too much salt. Our server Joseph provided outstanding customer service and wanted to make sure we had a good experience. The ambiance was nice as we sat by the wide window in the bar area. Since my first visit back when they first opened, the menu has gone through some changes. In my opinion, more changes need to be made to offer more of a variety, even in the appetizer area. There is a full bar, so you will get your choice of beverage. The restaurant also offers gaming, if that is something you are interested. You can even take their favorite cocktails to go for your own bar at home.

Oscar is the BEST! I went there with my sister and cousin and ALL of our food and drinks were amazing! We had a great time at brunch and we're planning to return again for dinner very soon. My family is one of picky eaters and for all of us to give A ratings for the food we had says a lot! We are looking forward to dining there again and can't wait until the patio dining is open. Oh, I want to make sure I mention the chef, GREAT JOB, and the rest of the staff did an exceptional job as well making sure we had a pleasant experience. Thank you all!

Was seated 10 minutes past reservation after arriving 5 minutes early. Took 15 minutes to get a server to our table. Drinks were boozy and not well mixed. Wrong appetizer was brought to the table. Main course was scorching hot and over cooked.... the entire experience from the moment we walked in the door was off. Our waiter was nonexistent took 1 order since we had 15 minutes to view the entire menu. After that it was nothing but runners serving us
