We ordered two beers from the beer menu that claimed "11.5 oz" for $5.50 each. When the tab arrived, they were $6.00 each. We didn't complain, but should have. The "goblet" was small - clearly not 11.5 oz, so we asked the bartender what was up. She measured out 5 "jiggers" into a goblet and said, "yup, 11.5 oz." Well,... More

Went on a Friday night with the family and it was packed but that didn't prevent us from getting great service. My husband and father-in-law go every Tuesday to play poker here and my husband can't say enough good things about the service. The food was very good as well.

This was one of the first place my son and I visited when we moved to the area. Have returned many times. Food is always excellent. Good selection and great prices. Nice place to sit and visit with my son who always helps me choose something different from the very extensive beer list to try.

When the Broken Barrel first opened, it was the place to get beer in South Brevard. I don't know what happened but the selection doesn't seem to be as great as it once was (or perhaps I've become pickier as the choices have gotten better.) I was surprised that in mid-October, there were only a handful of Oktoberfest beers and... More

They are the largest wings I've seen anywhere and having them smoked...BANG! Super Yummy! You can get them smoked and deep fried but I prefer them just smoked. They don't even need... More

a friend recommended this place and we liked it very much...we went on a Saturday afternoon and it was crowded. its a sports bar. I ordered wings and so did Paul. Mine were okay but his were cooked differently and I liked his better.....Lanna was the one who told us about this place and we certainly will go back again....

There wings are no. 1. Great food and plenty of beer to choose from. We eat here a lot, and love watching the football games here.

Ok, don't get fooled by where this place is. Tucked away in a strip center and not easy to see unless you know it's there. But when you do, you will love it. First service, at the bar, well I guess because we are there most Tuesday nights, we sit down and our beers are put in front of us,... More
