Great little restaurant!

This is a great little restaurant not far off the interstate. The burger was fresh and delicious. The fries are large, hand cut. Bread pudding is some of the best I have eaten. The server Scottie was super friendly and gave great service even though he was busy. Only one thing was odd - The owner... read more

We've been looking for a great place close to our house to have a burger. This is one of the best we've found. We plan to go back for dinner.

Good food. Specials usually go fast. Great for lunch and for dinner. Good wine list. Fish is always good. My husband likes the burgers and wedge salads.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Had the fire cracker shrimp appetizer. Ordered the bourbon sirloin and it was cooked exactly as I asked. Very tasty and juicy. Definitely would a visit again.

Service was superb, filet was very good, sirloin was very tough and disappointing and coconut shrimp was overcooked and just fair. Will give them another try- maybe a bad night.

first trip to BBB&A was amazing. Not sure where my first review went but this is my 2nd attempt at applauding this restaurant. Knowledgeable, professional, and friendly service accompanied by awesome food! Shrimp and grits for us gluten free and double cut pork chop are MUST haves! There was a rowdy bunch that I noticed the manager was able to... More

A O, Owner at Bourbon Barrel Beef & Ale, responded to this review

I am very surprised at this review. I feel it is important to try to clarify why these guests may have been kept waiting. They arrived 15 minutes early, and arriving early for a reservation on a busy night is a surefire way to be asked to wait at the bar until your table is ready. What you see in... More

Some of the best food I've ever eaten!! The waiter was extremely nice and attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. First time eating Shrimp and Grits at the recommendation of the waiter and would easily drive 6 hours one way just to eat there again. A must try if you're in the area.

While the price may be a bit high for the area....if you are looking for outstanding food and service then this is the place to dine. From the made fresh daily sauces, butter and dressings, to the locally sourced produce used in salads....each entree is prepared to order. The ambience is good, a bit more casual, and the wait staff... More
