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

Because this restaurant is really a bar it is always noisy. However it's not really bothersome while eating. If you haven't tried the wings they are delicious. It's also great for parties since they have a separate room in the back. This is certainly a plus since not many restaurants have a room that is closed in so you could... More

I keep forgetting this place. Went there recently for lunch and had their wing lunch special. Their smoked wings are the best around. You can get them plain or with different selection of sauces. Mine were parmesan garlic which was very good. Didn't sample any beers but I believe they have one of the largest selections around.

Great place to have a few drinks with friends and family and enjoy variety of foods, from finger licking good wings to big dinner plates. Try their appetizers they are great.

Went to the Broken Barrel on a saturday night with some friends for a few beers. Even though we weren't going to order any food, the waitress was very nice, explained all the various types of beer and prices, and gave us samples. We sat for hours in a great relaxed atmosphere and were not rushed by the staff. Had... More

My favorite food at BB is the wings. I usually get the Jerk wings which are smoked. There are other flavors but I like the jerk. It's not the traditional Jamaican jerk but they are good
