“Fantastic pizza and beer selection on draft”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Title says it all. The service is a little slow but food and beer are worth the wait. The inside needs a little up dating.

“Barley's Taproom Good Food: Horrible Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We traveled to Asheville last weekend. Used Trip Advisor to select our restaurant for Saturday night. Thought we would enjoy Barley's based on the reviews we read. Hostess was friendly, we were told it would be a little bit of a wait. Went to the upstairs bar and a few minutes later were seated at our table. We waited 10 Minutes and our server was no where to be seen! We asked the hostess and she said she would send our server right over.... another 5 minutes and then she appears. She did apologize saying she did not know we were her table. No problem we placed our drink orders and our food order. I asked for a glass of water. 25 minutes later.... pizza came very good. No water.... no server.... very thirsty and finally had to call out to her as she waited on the table of 6 in front of us. So, our night was not ruined, however, we were checking out Barley's for a large group dinner in April for business. Unfortunately we will NOT be taking our group to Barley's due to the lack of service we received last weekend.

“Good beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great beer selection in this place! The bartenders were helpful and there was live music. Nice for a beer and conversation but nothing special except for the beer selection!

“Awesome beer selection and good pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

The title says it all. The selection of craft brews is really good and we can usually find something new to try. The food is pretty good as well. We typically get the pizza but have tried a couple of appetizers and burger before. Its a good place to go when out on the weekend after many of the surrounding restaurants have closed. Right down the street from the Fine Arts Theater so that makes for a great night of dinner and movie.

“Taproom & Pizzeria = come for Beer and Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Barley's taproom is a great bar for a beer lover. Many beer's on tap including many brewed in Asheville. The pizza here is also excellent. The rest of the menu is OK, good for bar food (burgers, pita wraps, etc.) Nothing spectacular, but a good place to get lunch and a brew.

Rating this excellent because its called Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria, and both of those aspects are excellent. Stray from there and you may be disappointed.
