A "bar" experience serving dozens of craft brews! Totally casual place, that appears to be possibly a really fun night spot. Indoor and outdoor seating. Fun wait staff. A nice sized menu featuring lots of fun meats and salads. I seriously enjoy creating my custom salad with several items that could be put in a wraps. Try the Blue Cheese... More

Super local spot. Feels like hanging out at someone's house/backyard with super friendly service. Great food with several veggie options. Great beer list. What's not to like?

I don't know about the other salad dressings but the blue cheese is 90-95% blue cheese. Nice salad spring mix with tomatoes cakes and cheese an absolute must have if you... More

Went to the Gnarly Barley on 03/22/2017. I was attending a convention and staying on International Drive which is fine but after a few days you really want to get away from the touristy stuff. Walked in and felt good right away. The person behind the bar set me up with excellent lager. (How did she know exactly what I... More

This is a nice friendly pub selling craft beer and excellent sandwiches and tacos. The service here is fast and excellent. I can recommend the custom sandwiches and the brisket tacos. Plenty of easy, free parking. Dine outside or inside. Only about a mile from the Comfort Suites on McCoy.

We found this on our way to the airport to pick up friends who were joining us on vacation. After getting over stimulated and ripped off at the Universal Theme Park it was nice to walk into this local restaurant and drink a cold can of beer. We got three of them $12! Two of us had the BLT and... More
