We had reservations on a Saturday night. Was greeted immediately and seated. Server was there quickly and took drink order and knew the menu and drinks very well. Personable and likable. We got the friend Brussels as an appetizer and they were amazing. The bourbon options were fantastic as well. Cocktails limited. The server took our order and my wife... More

A bit off the beaten path the Bourbon Barrel is a great find. The food is flavorful, the service prompt and the selection intriguing. Plenty of parking across the street is a big plus for Waynesville, Nice selection of whiskies are offered.

Small intimate restaurant. Large variety of choices on the menu. I had the heart of rib eye with bourbon glaze. It was excellent (and that from a Wyoming person with high beef standards). The meat was prepared perfectly and the glaze was a wonderful addition. My Dad had the crab cakes and loved them. They were very meaty. My husband... More

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! I have walked to the stores to the right and left of BBB&A countless times the past several years. For whatever reason, this week I made notice of it and thought it was a brand new spot. Nope...open FIVE years I learned! My husband and I were a party of 2 and booths are... More

We went here on a recommendation. Our server was nice and accommodating and food came out fast. I thought the menu was very limited but I think that's trendy now. We went in 10 minutes after they opened and I didn't like the hostess at all. She looked like she wasn't going to seat us and there was 2 tables... More

Great steak restaurant. Upper style menu with moderate prices. Steaks, burgers, seafood, soups, etc. I would recommend this restaurant for couples interested in a good dating meal.

I had the Heart of Ribeye cooked medium well with new potatoes and smoked mushrooms. Those mushrooms we something to write home about but I do wish they gave you more than 3 slivers. The potatoes were creamy and we'll seasoned. They weren't served whole, like I'd hoped, but they were a fantastic side. My ribeye was very thick and,... More

The food was great, the service was great, all the different orders from crab cakes to steaks were cooked properly, the serve was good. If the server had had the proper support he could have done much better. Many would blame the service on the waiter but I put my blame on the bar manager. Both my father-in-law and I... More

A O, Owner at Bourbon Barrel Beef & Ale, responded to this review

Hi Daryl, I apologize for this frustrating experience. The bourbons you requested are ones that are allotted very sporadically to the restaurant. The ABC store here in town is the only place I am allowed to purchase liquor due to NC liquor laws, and it can be limited at times. With that being said, I have a great working relationship... More
