From the outside, it looks like a strange florida strip mall restaurant, but inside you're transported in to a world of beer and smoked meats. We really enjoyed our food and beer while here. I was SO happy to find a sour ale on tap! Most of my friends had the smoked chicken sandwich or platter. I enjoyed some appetizers-... More

I really like this establishment. Craft beers, friendly bartenders, plenty of sport channels available. Great chicken wings. Get them smoked and fried for ultimate pleasure! Your bar tab can get hefty, quality costs, but the atmosphere and choice is worth it

We had two hours to kill and stopped in for some beer and wings. From the outside you're not expecting what awaits on in the inside. It's a nice looking Tavern with a long bar with many draft and craft beers to select from. You can even choose from a house list of requested beer blends. Their smoked and grilled... More

Great wings! Went with my daughter and granddaughters for dinner. Thought it would be too loud for then but they loved it. The food was great and so was the service

Good smoked wings and crispy chicken salad. Great beers on tap plus lots of bottles. We went there on a weekday and did not have to wait to be seated. Service was great, the waitress was very helpful and the food and drinks came quickly.

Wound up here for dinner after finding a couple of other pre-planned choices were closed on Monday nights. So it wasn't our first choice, as out of town visitors, anticipating a seafood dinner. But it offered an interesting variety of choices in meats & sides. We wound up with a 3 meat combo plate with pulled rib meat, smoked turkey... More

Broken barrel has an extraordinary selection of beers, good service, and good food. It's a little pricey but well worth it.
