Went here with 3 of my best friends during a weekend getaway. We loved the food and atmosphere! My chicken pesto pasta was amazing! The wings were good as well! The only issue we had was that they were out of the alcohol they needed for our drinks. For all three of us! So we had to order something else.... More

I hope we were there on a bad day, but I think they were short staffed. There were many open tables, but we were told by a waitperson that he would be back in 15-20 minutes to get us. People behind us were frustrated and ended up leaving because nobody was at the greeting station for that time. Once we... More

Barley Creek is a good name for this place because that is how the beer tastes! Average food, slow service.

Hi EaglesMom, Thanks for your review. There are over 18 Craft Brews on Tap. Six of those are Guest Craft Brewers that we personally know make great beer. We also sell some of the other National Beers just in case. Of course we also have a wonderful selection of other drinks. August 18th was busy and the day after a... More

This was a great place for us to eat dinner after a day at Camel back mountain. My husband loved the beer sampler and I had a delicious margarita. the atmosphere was light and fun while the food was yummy. We ordered the nachos to share as an appetizer and then a burger and chicken sandwich for dinner. All the... More

A good place to have a beer - good IPA/local selections. Food prices are very reasonable. On a busy Pocono weekend, on a Saturday eve, we were seated in half the time originally quoted. Front team members very accomodating and friendly but, I considered a lower grade here as the female bartender at the back bar (while we waited for... More

Beer was excellent, food was okay. Nice spot, fun stop. For quality local beer, this place is great, but the food just wasn't that great.

We stopped here for weekday lunch on our way to Great Wolf Lodge which is five minutes away. This was a good decision considering the marginal food quality that is served at Great Wolf Lodge. All ages in our group, kids, parents and grandparents enjoyed their lunch. Service was attentive. Plenty of food choices for everyone. We did not consume... More

We're good at getting large groups being so close to the ski area up the road. Great Wolf has a great and well trained kitchen team, and at the bar - they carry our beer,... More

I have been going to Barley's for years, because the atmosphere is good and its in a good location for us. But I would never have given them more then a three rating. They have a new menu, and the quality of their beer has improved, as has my rating.

This past weekend, I made my first pilgrimage to the Poconos. I went to Tannersville to visit my son at camp. It was a long trip out, then a long day at camp in the hot sun.
