These guys know how to serve barbeque and the servings are large, I especially love the sauerkraut balls. The staff is friendly and service is quick. The beer is very good and could be a little colder. Overall a great experience but the owners need to update the exterior which appears run down. The large screen TV is a little... More

Visited on a Saturday, no wait, great service. Hubby thought the ribs were a little to dry. Ans you only got 1 side sauce. Sauerkraut balls were large and fairly tasty, side pickle was the highlight of the dish. I had pulled pork burrito. Large portion, great pulled pork.

I used to love this restaurant, when I lived in Columbus and went fairly often. I came back for the holidays, and went with my family. I was thrilled that it was "wings night", as I was going to have them as my entrée. They grill them, instead of frying them, and the "gates of hell" sauce used to be... More

Always enjoy going to Barleys on the way to see the bluejackets. Enjoy having a few pints prior to heading to arena.

Pulled in about 5:00 on a Friday evening for a large retirement party. Easy to find. Good parking area. The interior is big, clean and attractive. Da wife loves the sauerkraut balls. I enjoyed the chips, salsa and veggies and dip. Good beer selection. We’ve had the BBQ on previous and dinner was very, very good! Go! Enjoy!

I have eaten here many times, most often lunch. The service is usually very good. They have a nice menu and I have never been disappointed with the food. Most recently I had the Barcelona burger. Loved the olives on it and the burger was super tender and juicy. Fries are just ok, but they have several other alternative sides... More

We went here on a Saturday with the kids before a Crew game. My son got a Bison burger and fries and really enjoyed it. My husband got the pulled chicken and my daughter and I got grilled chicken sandwiches. No complaints about our meal. We would eat here again. My husband and I would have liked to have tried...

This is our third time and we love it everytime! This time it was for my daughter's birthday! Food is always great and so are the servers! Pulled bbq chicken sandwich is my favorite. And the meat is local. :)

This is a fun place with a great atmosphere and some good food and drink. I had the vegetarian burger, which is made in-house and it was excellent. Great service and drinks.
