The Barley has a great selection of beers if that is your thing. Other drinks also served as well as their famous pretzels. Sandwiches are also good if you get hungry. Lots of locals who return time after time - thanks for a great evening Colin!

Popped in for lunch during holiday visit with family. Pretzels are awesome, dips delicious, sandwiches. In the group, Caprese, Roast Beef and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches all got rave reviews. Kids had pretzels with Nutella and Cream Cheese Frosting. The beer selection is wonderful and staff knowledgeable with their guidance.

I went here with my family this summer and had a great meal. Their claim to fame is their pretzel rolls that they make fresh on the spot.

Of course the beer wine and cocktail specials are great. Bartenders are very very knowledgeable and helpful. Nice to be able to sample of variety of offerings. Pretzel sandwiches are to die for. It is a real chill atmosphere!
