So glad we ate here and enjoyed our visit. Extravagantly decorated for Halloween so that was a sight to see anyway but the food, staff and service outstanding too. I had an excellent battered fish meal and my husband had a perfectly cooked steak. Great...More

I felt right at home as soon as I walked into BaRLee's. The large, rustic room was warm and inviting, and the service was prompt and friendly. The fried pickle spears were a delectable appetizer, and the entrees we tried were amazing. The pulled pork...More

The place is fantastic. Best burger I have ever had and the bartender was great. I don’t drink but I still recommend this place. They bbq their own bacon and meat and it is a very quaint place and has great atmosphere. I plan on...More

Visited BaRLee's the first night we arrived in Keystone. Very few places were open as we visited in early October, just after the end of the season. The restaurant has a weird set-up - you eat upstairs but the waitresses have to run downstairs (outside!)...More

We dined here at the end of September . . . . almost at the end of the season . . . . so I will give them a "free" pass! I don't think they expected such a large crowd for lunch, so were a...More

The roaring smoker out front is a genuine preview to the smoked meats offered inside. We enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches in the bar downstairs so we could watch BIG10 football. The BBQ sauce  had a nice kick to it. A pleasant surprise was the HUGE...More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn and would eat at BaRLee's, since it was near by. I absolutely fell in love with their pulled pork and fries! Staff was nice and they also offered take-out. Would definitely eat here again.
