I ate here 10 years ago and it was awesome, went last week and it is still awesome, the pizza was better than the Barley's in Greenville but to be fair the portion size was much smaller. When I visited last time all Barleys were owned by the same group, I learned that this is the only Barleys the original... More

I need to start by saying the pizza was great! I would eat here again just based on that alone. But our service was not good by any means. We sat without being greeted for 20 minutes. We had to go ask a server who was waiting on our table and her response was "oh, I am". She then arrived... More

My wife and I stopped here recently to rest our feet and cool down on a hot Friday afternoon. They have a great selection of beer on tap and lots more in bottles. We also decided to have the garlic bread which came out pretty quickly. The pizzas looked really good but we were only in need of a snack.... More

I have eaten at Barley's numerous times over the years when visiting Asheville. They have a very good pizza (now offering gluten-free dough) and a great beer selection. They offer a nice relaxed atmosphere for lunch or dinner with family, friends, or business colleagues. They even have billiards and live music on occasion upstairs. If you are strolling through downtown... More

This is just a great place when you want some basic food and good music. The food is good, pizza and some interesting dishes. I had a spicy chicken sandwich that was really good. My wife and daughter had the veggie pizza which was also great. I'm a New York Pizza Snob so I'm hard to please. Good eats at... More

Like most places in Asheville, this place has a nice selection of beers on tap. It's a pleasant place with a nice bar. Not a destination, but a pleasant place to duck in for a beer when it starts to rain, which is how I happened to visit.

Good pizza, pleasant servers, though once we were seated it took a while to get some menus, etc. upstairs has pool and live music, but we had other plans and didn't take advantage.

Conveniently located in downtown near a parking garage, I have eaten at Barley's two or three times on trips to Asheville. I recommend it for its great pizza and its extensive selection of micro-brews and local beers. Last time I was with my daughter and granddaughter for dinner and we had an excellent (large) mushroom and jalapeno pizza accompanied by... More

Delicious pizza and fresh salad. You can order a whole pizza or just a slice. The waitress was super friendly and made us feel welcome. Casual place with a good beer and wine selection.

Our family group ate at Barley's because it was a Saturday afternoon and everything in the area was unable to seat a large group. The service is quick and efficient, great choices from the local micro brews and the food was good but not great. I think your best bet is the pizza which is a thin crust and available... More
