The Gnarly Barley recently had their fifth year anniversary bash and it was totally awesome. They handled the huge number of faithful supporters very smoothly with great food and brews, and as always, an even better staff. GB is a south Orlando gem and you are missing out if you haven't been yet.

We were in town for a few days and wanted to find some cool, non-touristy, non-chain craft beer bars. This place was a little bit of a drive from our hotel near Universal, but it was a good choice. They had a decent beer selection and even though we were not crazy about the food, the reviews say the food... More

Had a great lunch on way to the airport. Brisket Snack Attack. Outstanding!. Get the tiger sauce. I had the brisket tacos, two people had the adult grilled cheese and one had the regular grilled cheese. All were happy with their choices. Definitely would stop here again. The Trivial Pursuit cards were a great addition to pass the time while... More

First off, this place isn't big, off the beaten path, it's not fancy nor expensive. Guess what...that's why I love it. We were created by Britney, a lovely waitress who throughly enjoys her job and spoke very highly of her employer. Beer selection was vast. The food was out of this world. I got a sandwich with blue cheese sauce,... More

They're known for their brisket. Tonight I didn't have that I shared with 3 friends chicken tacos flatbread and a chicken sandwich that had apples and tomatoes on it. It was absolutely delicious all of it great craft beers too

Just finished a great sandwich and a nice craft beer at Gnarly Barley. Great place to go for an afternoon. If you enjoy great craft beers and good food you need to try this place. Service is great. Easy access for mobility challenged persons. Good parking lot. Casual great place to hang out lots of variety.

Me and my fiancé along with my sister and her boyfriend came up to Orlando for Halloween horror nights and the food and wine festival like most years. On our final day we packed our stuff and by the time we left it was a bit late for breakfast so my fiancé saw the Gnarly Barley looking up a brewery... More

If you have a husband who would prefer a craft beer to a dole whip- come to the gnarly barley! You'll think you are at the wrong place - fab food and large craft beer selection with great service. No kids menu - and food is pretty grown up - but they welcomed the McNuggets we brought for our girls.

Great little spot to meet and enjoy local brews on tap. Great Service! Did not eat, so I cannot rate the food.
