This weeks local support was for Barleys. They never disappoint - and the owner and staff there are top notch. They got about the best burgers in town. And the Thai pizza is really good as well.

I live a few blocks away and eat here often. Love the Greek Salad and I have NEVER had a bad meal. A few years ago the food was good. Now it’s great. See for yourself.

I love this place. I go once every week. I often have the Greek Salad with Gyro. The wings are good. All their burgers are good. They are also active in supporting the community.

Had a great order of onion rings and burgers. I had the burger made like a Rueben - the corned beef and home made dressing were incredible. Husband had a double burger between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches. Tried several local brews and they were very...well done. Nice patio for views of lovely historic buildings and spacious seating for groups. * Disclaimer- photos are of our leftovers. The servings are huge and reasonably priced.More

I recently read a review of Barley's in our local paper and decided to travel from Omaha to Council Bluffs to give them a try. My wife and I have visited twice and both visits were very good. Barley's is actually two bars in one....There is the large main bar/seating area which was packed on both of our visits. The other bar is smaller and had parties going on on both of our visits. Both areas are very nice. On both visits we sat at the bar which is quite long. The servers were great and made sure our night was pleasant. On our second visit, we decided to try the pizza. The pizza was very good and tasty. The pizza comes in three sizes and the prices were very reasonable. The menu also includes a good selection of your typical pub fare-burgers, sandwiches and plenty of appetizers. They have about 30 beers on tap and a large selection of liquor behind the bar. Many of the taps were Iowa brewed beers and prices for beers were also quite reasonable. If you're not quite hungry enough for a full meal, there is a popcorn machine serving fresh popped popcorn for free. While sitting at the bar I notice that the staff new many of the customers buy first name so they must have a dedicated crowd of regulars. If Barley's was closer to my home I'd be a regular customer. As mentioned before, they were quite busy on both of our visits. I was really impressed with how hard the staff hustled to keep things moving. We were never without a drink and our pizza was served quickly. Great service! We will be back!!More

Barleys is a great neighborhood bar with an extensive selection of local beers on tap for a decent price. Their burgers are great. What I really enjoy are the pizza rolls and onion rings. The rings are marinated in buffalo sauce to provide a little...extra tang. The pizza rolls are large and filled with deliciousness. It's a great place to meet up with friends.More

We are here often - service and food is always great. Sitting inside can be noisy when they're busy, but we prefer to sit outside when we can anyway so usually not a problem. On our last visit we brought our dog and she was...happy as well (special order of fries just for her). If you go, try the Arnold sandwich or their wings. Beers on tap are great (and cold).More

Stopped by after visiting the Kanesville Tabernacle for some dinner before looking for a hotel. The salad I had had was delicious (the blue cheese dressing was really good) and my husband club sandwich was also very good.
