This is NOT part of the Denny's chain. Be ready for a unique local place with a huge menu and a long but terrific selection of craft beers on tap. Not fancy, but an impressive selection of hamburger options (i opted for the too big for me bacon cheeseburger) and delicious wings. Don't wait for a table - they are... More

Stopped in after working all day in the area with 4 other people. Beer wasn't cold out of the tap. Appetizers came after our meal, one person's side salad never came. Burgers were average, service was lackluster, and just wasn't impressed.

Unfortunately, Denny's has gone from neighborhood dive bar with great food to tourist trap with mediocre food. The regular, normal human burgers used to be the best: moist, juicy and fixed in tasty combinations (the Clearfield County was my fave, a mushroom/Swiss deal). Now they won't cook anything but a well done piece of shoe leather. The menu should be... More

We went here for the first time. With a world famous place I expected perfect food. What I got was a dry decent burger. Beer battered fries were awesome. Waitress was terrible brought us a pitcher of warm water. I will try again . I got better burgers at max & ermas or burgatory.

Came here with parents and our 12 year old. Good timing got there just before a rush of people. Great service, great beer flight and very tasty burgers. Our 12 year old claimed it was the best bacon cheeseburger he has ever had. Now that is a perfect review!!! I definitely want to return

I'm glad you got seated before the rush -- that can get crazy sometimes. I'm so glad you all enjoyed your experience here, and love that your 12-year-old had the best bacon cheeseburger of his life! :) That IS a perfect review! Thanks so much for all five stars, and I look forward to seeing your family again very soon.... More

I got the white cheddar mac & cheese. My wife got the suicide barbecue wings. Both were excellent. Looking forward to going back tomorrow for a 1 pound cheeseburger.

We just went here yesterday with family and I was highly disappointed with my meal. I got the pub nachos. They had hardly any flavor. And the "aged cheddar cheese sauce" as stated in the menu, was the orange cheese you get from a can-and it tasted disgusting. I was completely disgusted and disappointed with this meal and even more... More

It's disappointing for me to hear that after driving an hour to my restaurant, you didn't enjoy your meal! I want to assure you that the sauce on our pub nachos is in fact aged cheddar cheese sauce, and is not from a can. I also want you to know that we'd have been more than happy to give your... More

Some of my old family is from Clearfield and Woodland. Most are gone, but we were driving though the area and decided to stop and visit our one last living relative in the area.

I'm really sorry to hear that it took us a while to seat your family! We seat people on a first-come-first-serve basis, and customers often prefer to be seated at the lower tables. While we would've loved to be able to help you out right away, it's often hard for us to control the pace in which the customers already... More

Description
This is Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, that's right, the Denny's Beer Barrel Pub that is known for the "World's Largest Hamburger Challenges" and where it all began. What started with a two pound hamburger challenge with homemade buns baked in a coffee can, has now turned into a world famous event. "The Ye Olde 96er" is what really boosted Denny's Beer Barrel Pub into fame and has since been featured on The Food Network, Travel Channel, Tony Danza Show, Good Morning America, Today Show, David Letterman's Top 10, and Country Fried Home Videos on the Country Music Channel. While our two pound burgers are what bring people in, the quality of our daily food is what keeps them coming back. Our menu offers more than just burgers and includes more than 46 different types of wings and several delicious appetizers that are sure to satisfy any appetite. Be sure to wash your food down with one our more than 30 beers on tap including more than 20 craft and local brews. The staff at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub would like to welcome you to Clearfield and invite you to visit us and all our community has to offer.
