Four adults and two children were in our party on a Saturday night. We did not have to wait, which was a nice surprise. Our waiter, Rory, was pleasant and prompt. The food was very good. The kids got the 'make-it-yourself' pizza, which they loved. The adults had the shrimp quesadilla, house salad, the crab-topped shrimp, crab cake sandwich and... More

Excellent service, food and beer. Our family of four visited on a mid-afternoon on Saturday, with each enjoying a different sandwich - chorizo burger, pulled pork bbq, Juicy Lucy (stuffed cheese burger), and Feel the Briez (turkey). Each was delicious as were the fresh made French fries. My daughter loved the orange soda made on premise at the microbrewery. The... More

Our server was pleasant but lacked all the fundamental serving skills. Needless to say, service was slow and incomplete. They should never have been seated a party of twelve. A gluten free menu was given to our coworker who has Celiacs disease. The food arrived and evidence of gluten was noticed. After the server consulted with the owner, we were... More

It was apparently a slow Friday. Service was slow. Asked about the shrimp and grits. Bartender said it was a very popular item. So I ordered it. Shrimp was old and it was served on a pile of vegetables that had no presentation appeal. Grits were decent. Not worth the money but I guess they need the extra money to... More

I always like to try microbreweries, and we were excited to try Barley and Hops. The atmosphere and decor was nice, we were seated right away. Our server was friendly. Right away my husband ordered the beer sampling flight. ( limited to house beer and one seasonal. ) The samples were small, however they do give 2 free samples. The... More

Barley and Hops has a good variety of micro-brews, and awesome food. My favorite menu choices are the cheesy beer soup, the Reuben sandwich, and the mouth-watering burgers. The chef's specials are always worth trying as well. I haven't had a meal that I haven't enjoyed. The wait staff are attentive, and it has a family atmosphere.

The atmosphere is comfortable and is a brewery grill but we saw alot of children and families. My son and I started with some wings. They were good, not the best I have had but my son rated them a 4 out of 5. We then ordered burgers. I had the original burger and it was delicious and quite juicy.... More

Great experience! Food was wonderful, beer was good. Our waiter, Oakley, was fantastic! My nine year old would have given him 10 stars if possible.
