Lots of beer

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

Great little maybe not so little local bar. Best sweet potato fries around soft inside and lots of honey and flavor. Okay to go in single by the time a game is over you will have lots of friends.

We had a great evening out with friends. Great food and drinks, with an exceptional beer selection! The staff was very knowledgable and able to assist in selecting beers we would enjoy, even those of us who don't drink beer, found ones we enjoyed drinking!!

An awesome neighborhood/community establishment. My wife and I were looking for a new place to try and the Broken Barrel Tavern did not disappoint. We were greeted and seated promptly and Mike, our server, was attentive in every way you would expect. Top quality food and service and reasonably priced. Definitely a place to try again- highly recommend for friends... More

I think this is the best pork BBQ I have ever had. Comes on a delicious toasted kaiser roll. It's hard for me to find vinegar based BBQ and theirs is awesome. Don't like vinegar? There are 3 other sauces to choose from. You've got to try the smoked wings. They were an A+. Lots of great beers on tap.... More

After a few evening using this Bar as a watering hole through happy hour etc we discovered the Food Menu, and wow Smoked Wings to die for (specially Tuesdays)you'll see. Tried fried and smoked wings with various dips and coatings, all wonderfully delicious, but dont mention the ghost sauce unless you have a titanium lined throat and are prepared to... More

Too many beer snobs who think they are important. You feel like you're in a cave because there is no sunlight. And don't take the Sharks seat. Some guy calls himself the shark because he drank every beer they sell. Can you spell cirrhosis ?

Did not think I was a fan of smoked BBQ wings until I had our holiday party catered to by Broken Barrel. Very reasonable prices and the owners are super nice!

Excellent live music. Corned beef sliders and potato balls were really good with a couple of great beers, good prices. A roomy place with fun decorations, and though it was crowded it did not feel crowded because the tables are well spaced. Friendly and fast service.
