Ended up here late in the evening because it was very close to where we were staying and we didn't feel like exploring. At first, I was a little hesitant because of how loud and cramped it felt when we walked in - imagine my...More

Yes ma'am my new server did not handle your situation in an appropriate manner. I do apologize for that. Frankly, the food was not the problem but the service of a newer employee who is receiving additional training.

The food was barely edible. Not sure how you can mess up a burger, grilled cheese & a of side baked beans. Servers were nice and the bottled cider was good. However the food was horrible. Couldn't finish any of it!

This is right next to the Holiday Inn, so it was more out of convenience that we ended up here. It was an unusually warm spring afternoon, so we enjoyed sitting outside in the sun with our drinks. We shared the pretzels with beer cheese...More

I am terribly sorry you had this experience. Do you know who you talked to on the phone and who your server was at my restaurant? This definitely is not up to our standards.

We visited BaRLee's only because it was next to our hotel and it was the only place open in March. The staff is very friendly. The food was okay. Regular fare, not exceptional.
