In town just one night and asked Siri for the 4 star restaurants near my hotel. Barley House topped the list and pub grub was just what I wanted. The fish and chips were tasty, the cole slaw meh, the Southwick Ale a nice Irish red recco by the bartender. Bar flies to my right and left said the martinis... More

After briefly visiting the New Hampshire State House across the street, my wife and I enjoyed lunch at this Irish style pub. The homemade soup (pork and red bean) was outstanding. Portions are large and service is prompt and friendly. Have not dined anywhere else in Concord, but recommend this place highly.

It is easy to understand why the Barley House is a Concord tradition. It is located right downtown across main street from the capital. We had been meaning to try it for sometime so on our way home from a recent outing to Vermont we stopped by for an early dinner. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. There is a... More

We arrived at 7:00 on a Thursday and were told to expect a 35 minute wait, so we sat at the bar and had wonderful conversations with both bartenders and with several other patrons. They had a dozen or so beers on draft, including a Mayflower porter, which was good. We had a chicken pot pie and Irish Whiskey flatiron... More

Not impressed with the service, the perception was that as visitors to Concord we were to much trouble to deal with? The meal was not explained that the sauce was "hot" which detracted from its enjoyment.

One of our favorite places in Concord! Fun bar with good beers on tap, the burgers are perfect (in my opinion) I've never had an issue with how they are cooked or anything of that nature, they are always great! Service has been good, and the bar downstairs is also really fun! The only thing I see on the downside... More

This is my second review of the Barley House as we have been regular customers for a few years now. My BF and I visit almost every week, sometimes multiple times a week. It is always very good and very reasonably priced for local fresh ingredients. The Spinach Dip is the best we have ever had. We love the Buffalo... More

Wanted to check out the local craft beer scene but it's a little less than I was hoping. Good selection of sandwiches and burgers for lunch. I was not WOW'd by the turkey burger, so pass that one of you want one of their award winning burgers. Service was excellent at the bar.
