They definitely have one of the best beer selections around! The atmosphere and service is great! Their food seems to be good, we don't eat much of what they offer but our friends love it!

I love this place! they have tons and tons of great beers on draft, good food, and a friendly atmosphere. The food is pretty good. occasionally I will get sone overcooked meat, or slow service, but they have a very original menu with interesting options, and when they are on top of their game their food is tough to beat....

Where to begin? Most people don't want diatribes so will be concise. Visited the Broken (yes it is very broken) Barrel 3 time this past 10 days for World Cup Matches 2014 and have to say this was place brings the worst you can imagine for a strip center restaurant. This place is dingy, dark, filthy and disgusting. Why do... More

From the great beer selection (40+), to the full size pool tables, and the BEST WINGS I EVER ATE! Tuesdays is wing night and they smoke these wings for 2-3 hours before they deep fry them and then sauce them. The hot is just right and the bourbon bbq is to die for.We had such a good time last Tuesday... More

If dry-rub ribs are your thing, then this is your place, fall off the bone with a dry-rub seasoning that is out of this world! They are sold in 1, 2 or 3lb increments. The environment is loud and gets even louder when live bands are playing (Saturday night), they have 86 Beers on their liquor menu (drinks are about... More

This tavern has an excellent selection of beers of many styles. If they don't have a certain style on draft their bottle selection is huge. The smoked wings are probably the best in tow with a great selection of sauces. Overall, great place with pool tables and ample TV's for watching sports.

Was here for a private party so I can't say much about the main part of the restaurant but just from walking back and forth it looked decent. They have a large private room and the service was good, especially considering how many of us there were. The beer list is pretty good but they were out of a lot... More

Good food...good drinks...what else can you ask for? The menu is decent with specials shown on outside blackboard. The BBQ selection is good and the food is plentiful. Great for gathering with friends late night....not really a kids place due to being a bar, but fine for lunch or dinner.

Broken Barrel is a really neat, large tavern in Palm Bay that has the most spectacular collection of foreign and domestic beers in Brevard County (I think!) plus pretty darned good bar-b-que. The owners are a young couple who really are committed to their business and community and it shows. It's the kind of place you just feel good about... More

There smoked wings are unreal! A little over priced for wings, but incredible! The beef brisket sandwich is also amazing! The beer selection is what this place is all about, more drafts and bottles then I have ever seen. Puts WOB to shame! Live music and an awesome banquet room!
