Hot spot

Best wings in town. Great bartender and nice easy going atmosphere. This would be Palm Bay version of Cheers. I felt welcome and comfortable. Im not a big bar person but i definitely would keep visiting more often.

Simply put - WOW! Nice place. Very roomy. Very attendive wait staff! AND, all those brands of beer. I think you could spend nearly every night in there and try a different brand! The food was superb! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone, any time!

This is a local spot about 1 mile from my home so makes for easy access. It is a easy restaurant to take a family too as it's fairly noisy and drowns out little kids. It has pool tables, a large bar and a lot of regulars that love this place. The menu is sandwiches, soups, wings, etc. Everything I've... More

This is not an upscale dining establishment, instead you'll come here to enjoy the down-to-earth setting, big screen tvs for whatever sports you're into, live music and billiards for those who are seeking a bit more. The BBQ is delicious and varied. I love the pulled pork cuban, but have heard the burgers and other baskets and sandwiches are amazing.... More

I love this place! The food is always amazing too! I love the Broken Barrel Brew Crew. The only thing I would do better is to give the the Tavern more curb appeal.

Somehow my review got lost so lets try this again! The outside of the Broken Barrel doesn't have much "curb appeal" but once you open the door you will find it has pool tables, a big bar, and lots of tables for families. Looks like they have a catering room somewhere in the back also. They have a large selection... More

The Barrel has one of the most extensive selection of beers you'll find anywhere, and they are constantly bringing in new ones. Typical pub fare. Decent food priced reasonably. The service is excellent, especially for repeat customers.

All the bartenders are great, very friendly and provide excellent service. I love their Cuban sandwich, its the item I eat the most. Their fish dip is very good as are their wings. Lots of TV's and always clean.

This is a local hangout, but the food is surprisingly good. They have a brisket sandwich that's great! Lots of TV, so it's a good place to catch the game. Fun place, safe for kids. Good place for a friendly get together. I have met co-workers here on many occasions. The food will surprise you!

Good barbecue and a GREAT beer selection in Palm Bay. The owner takes great care to bring in yummy new tastings from breweries all over. I love the smoked chicken wings. The bourbon barbecue sauce is delicious, but I almost always end up eating it with toast because the smoked wings are THAT good. Wash it down with a Dunkel... More
