If they are catering an event you are attending eat before you go. It's always cold and too much fatty meat

Have been here with many different groups of friends. I don't drink, but those that do find all they want. The food is GREAT. Pool tables, live music, juke box (or what ever they call them now), sports on tv, trivia nights. Plenty to enjoy here. No smoking inside. Smokers can go outdoors.

Come here every time we come to Florida. The smoked wings are some of the best anywhere! The beer is cold and the service very good. If you're looking for a sports bar, this is the place.

This place is awesome. The atmosphere is great for food or beer. They have a ton of beers to choose from. The owners really know and understand customer service and it is demonstrate throughout their business and staff.

When I go to a place calling itself a Tavern I expect a warm atmosphere, comfortable seating and good comfort food. Broken Barrel does not deliver on the Tavern part of its name. The food was ok but this is really a bbq and burger place. And it's more like a dive than a tavern - pool tables, big open... More

Held a lunch here with coworkers. The service was very good and I really liked the rib basket. My coworker also enjoyed her salad. We were able to get in and out relatively quickly, so I would recommend for workday lunches.

Our former neighbors recommended this place, so we went out on a double-date to check it out. The first thing I noticed was the outstanding beer selection. They have a large permanent draft selection with a large rotational draft selection as well. They feature many local beers, which is what I'm interested in. We started off with the BBQ Egg... More

Overall good restaurant with sports bar atmosphere and great smoked wings. Prices are reasonable and the wait staff are personable and responsive. Located in a strip mall with plenty of parking. Seems to always be a good crowd with very few 1%er's.

Excellent beer selection! And the smoked wings are amazing, place always seems packed but never over crowded. We will return.
