“Excellent... music, food, drink...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012 via mobile

We FINALLY stopped in after walking by every day this week, looking at the menu and saying, "we have to go here this week!"

There was live music last night out on the deck so we went in for a couple drinks. We couldn't resist the food though even though we had already eaten dinner. The fish and chips, fries and Irish bomb cupcake - all delish!!!

The owners, a young couple who relocated here to follow their dream of opening a restaurant have really created a very welcoming place with great food and drink, live music, good value and just a nice place to chill after walking through all the historic streets.

This is a definite must-eat-at when you are in St. Augustine!

“Irish pub food, just off the tourist path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

We really enjoyed this place for it's beer selection, and it's food. Just one street over from St George, it's definitely not out of the way, and a far better place to eat than most on St George St. They had Mamas Little Yella Pilsner on tap! Very nice! The turkey pot pie was so good, I dreamt about it that night. My girl had the shephards pie, no ground meat here. They used real chunks of meat that were fork tender and a smooth gravy. Don't bypass the Tuscan fries. fresh cut fries with truffle and porcini dust! Blam!

“Great Beer, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Barley Republic was by far the best place we ate in St. Augustine.

The beer selection, both on tap and in bottles, was varied and delicious. The food was great, inexpensive, and filling. Both of the owners are very nice and have put a lot of hard work into making Barley Republic a nice, casual place to have a good beer and a great plate of food. The fish and chips, corned beef sandwich, and crawfish boil are all delicious, and the BLAT was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. :)

“If you like good food and music, this is the pub to go to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

By far the BEST Pub food I've EVER had! The Potato Soup was unlike any I've had before. Highly recommended. The Grassy Knolls were playing the night we visited. Their music drew us in but the food brought us back!

“Distinctive Irish Cuisine with a great Beer Selection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

I have frequented the Barley Republic, often bringing in new friends with me each time, since their opening. Red and Lauren have given St. Augustine a great new option for Traditional Irish faire. They have made a great difference in the location from the previous restaurant. If you are looking for quality I recommend trying either the Shepard's Pie or the Bangers and Mash, critics need not worry, some of the best mashed potatoes I have ever tasted. If you are looking for more American style pub food they also offer a great deal on bone-in and boneless wings with some delicious homemade sauces. They offer 6 different draft beers and a whole slew of import and domestic micro brew bottles, I have yet to try them all and they seem to have changed slightly each time we are in. Service is always top notch, make sure you ask for Red or Lauren if you stop in!
