We called into this bar for a drink. The staff were very friendly. they had an excellent selection of beer. We didn't stay very long as we had only flown in that afternoon, but we would recommend it. They also serve food.

I am so happy for Trip Advisor and all the contributors as this is how I found this restaurant in Concord, NH! As I didn't have a reservation, it was quite a wait. The burgers were super juicy & delicious! The ambience was really, with tables well spaced out. Great place!!!

This is another place we consider one of our favorites. The meals are tasty and well presented. The wait staff is professional, warm and friendly. My favorites are the Mac and Cheese, veggie burger, and the spinach dip. The cocktails are well made and the beer list is varied. This is a hit with our friends as well.

I am happy to say I looked on trip advisor for a place to eat! I took others advice & found this place in downtown Concord! The waitress was so sweet & brought free hummus & breadsticks first thing! Homemade hummus was delicious! The reviews said their burgers were Award worthy so I had one with smoked cheese, bacon, &... More

Dark interior (ceiling has seen better days), nice wood flooring. Table spacing is excellent - you don't hear the next table. Wait staff was not prompt in greeting us after sitting down (approximately 7 minutes before being approached). The homemade hummus is superb and the pretzels & breadsticks were good. Spacing of the meal was very uneven. We waited a... More

Just the kind of bar I like! The upstairs bar can get pretty crowded but it is small and I like that. The food here is always excellent and the beer selection is always good. I love that they always have some beer from local breweries on tap.

Across the street from the golden dome of the Capitol building sits the Barley House restaurant. We went on a Saturday Night, about 7pm, and had a 30 minute wait - not too bad. It was clean and welcoming. Lights were dim and it had a tavern feel, with a bar and two dining rooms. The hostess and waitress were... More

A restaurant that understands and can cater to gluten free automatically gets a bump up from me, hence the excellent rating. Our waitress was super nice. The kitchen brought out carrots and celery to go with the humus for my GF hubby, something that we both appreciated. Others had breadsticks and pretzels with their own humus. I didn't try those...

Typical dark pub interior. While located in historic downtown, the interior could use some sprucing up to be more cheerful. I imagine the atmosphere would be better in the evening. Food and local draft beer was only average. It was a slow afternoon and our server Angie was not that attentive.

Downtown Concord is alive and thriving! This restaurant is right downtown on the Main street with street parking. Has nice atmosphere and cozy tables and booths even sidewalk tables. We unfortunately got a new waitress, she was a little slow (other tables got their food before us). Two of us had the brick pressed chicken with walnut n cranberry sauce,... More
