Barley Mash is decent sports bar. It’s got a lot going for it: 30 big screen TVs, 30+ beers on draft, 20+ varieties of bourbon/American whiskey, etc. It’s a loud venue with live music/DJ on occasion. I didn’t think the service was friendly or awesome...More

Huge sports bar with great ambiance. We used the downstairs for an exclusive event - which had a full bar, food and karoake. Upstairs was open with music, dancing and goo drinks. Great place to chill and have a great time.

Although it is a sportsbar, It a is a large place and during the day I would imagine it would be kid friendly. A call to them with regard to high chairs and such would be appropriate.
