Great pizza and atmosphere

We stopped in on a day trip to Asheville and happy we did. The service was excellent and the pizza was delicious and fresh. Oh, and the crust? It was too good to be true. A great place to stop in before or after your Asheville visit!

Good place to sit down have a pizza and drink some great drafts. It can definitely get crowded at times so if you can, go on off hours.

I visited Barley's with an extended family of 14 on a Saturday night in June. Though we waited a long time for adjacent tables so that we could sit together, the staff couldn't have been more pleasant. When we were finally seated, one of the best servers I've ever encountered took our many orders, which were served fairly quickly (considering... More

We've eaten here on multiple visits. We did again tonight. It did not disappoint. The local craft beer menu is amazing. The pizza is fresh and hot. The ingredients are all local. The pizza is more like New York style. It is very good!

After a evening walking the city of Asheville, most of the sidewalks roll up about 9. The Barley's Pizzeria stays open late and delivers pretty good pizza at the same time. It is convenient to the downtown area and can accommodate the night scene.

If you mistakenly wander into this place mostly because you just wanted to find anywhere that was A/Ced in the city, please do yourself a favor and find somewhere else. This chain pizza place seems woefully out of place in Indie-centric Asheville. The pizza is awful, and you don't even have the opportunity to earn 1,000 tickets for a crappy... More

Worst pizza I have ever had. White pizza, a loser. Service was not good. Sat there for over10 minutes before anyone showed up. Loud. Definitely a young persons place. Good beer buy lousy pizza
