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!

Not interesting, not bad but food lacks flavor. Service was slow and the restaurant is very noisy. I would not go back

Typical bar atmosphere but good food. Very loud if game or group is there. Large place with plenty of seating.

I have found brisket to be fatty well theirs is not. just a little bit that was easily trimmed. BBQ eggrolls were fantastic. In fact so much so I went back the next day for more.

Been to Broken Barrel a couple times. Really fun, caring staff. Great vibe. Nice beer selection (and scotch./whiskey as well, really high end stuff if you are looking.) Great place for a game or happy hour. I had wings, which were huge and delicious. All the staff were friendly and fun and the patrons were having a good time. Check... More

They have really good and unusual chicken wings which get smoked rather than fried. They don't really need any sauce and Tuesday nights the wings are on sale. Many, many beers on tap. There is a high level of background noise making conversation difficult.

I am a big Brunswick Stew fan having grown up with some really good stew in the Winter Haven area (now defunct Ranch House) and have been totally disappointed in finding any in the Space Coast that is worth eating... until now!! Broken Barrel has the best I have found in the state in modern times! LOts of beer choices,... More
