“Worst dining experience ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Dined on patio. Bug infested. Bugs in food. Terrible slow service. Complained....boxed food to go with bugs included. Disgusting. Owner would only reimburse 60%of tab. What a insult and bad way to fix a wrong.

“Poor service, long wait time, order not prepared properly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Comfortable atmosphere, but poor food delivery. The wait was well over 30 minute for any delivery and nothing was shared with us regarding the delay. Specific instructions for preparation of one item were not followed, and the person bringing the item was defensive about what was delivered.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant as a party of four, the service was great and the food was brilliant. I am also reliably informed that the choice of beer was great too, I would definitely recommend a visit :)

“Good food, good service, nice lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

My wife and I had lunch there and the service was very good. It opened around June, 2013, about two months ago. This restaurant is a nice addition to the Leawood area.

The food was very good. I ordered the sausage po boy sandwich, and my wife ordered a small salad. She was very glad the waitress informed her that the "small" salad is enough for a dinner. The kielbasa po boy was very good and huge. Better come hungry.

They have a great variety of beers and the waiter was very helpful in explaining differences.
This is a very nice restaurant and we are looking forward to coming back for a dinner there.

“Great atmosphere, great beer selection, food is good too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Newly opened as an addition to the other two Barley's in the area. This one is a step up from the Overland Park Barley's in terms of atmosphere and decor. However, not as many beers on draught.
Has a private room that seats 8 in back. High tops by the U-shaped bar. Many booths that make corralling children easier. 3 glass garage doors that open to the outdoor patio.
Food is great. I had the trout with green beans and mushroom, bacon, barley. Trout was good, green beans ever so slightly undercooked and the barley was awesome! Of noting, this was a soft open so I believe the food will get more spot on, even though it wasn't bad at all. So I very much look forward to returning.
Beer selection is great. I had the Green Flash West Coast IPA. Always solid. The draught lines are new, so I was concerned of possible plastic taste. Not so! The beer was quite fresh.
Overall I would recommend this too all who visit the area. A great gathering place that has a nice atmosphere and quality food and beverage.
