We came here with our friends after hearing them rave about it. They recommended it because they know we love mom and pop places and micro brews. This place met that criteria.
First impression - it is in an old building with gravel parking lot. I've learned to not judge a book by its cover because done of the vest food I have had has been in dives.
Upon going inside we noticed that the place was very clean. The decorations were sparse but ok . The inside was very roomy and comfortable(only good part of the place)
After waiting about 15 minutes our server arrived and wanted to take our food order. After telling him we wanted drinks he became a little nervous. Our served was very pleasant I just think he was inexperienced- no big deal.
Food- I am very easy to please. Many times after eating at places people have made comments that they didn't like the food and I had liked it. Here I can say is the first place I will never return- ever.
Our son and friends kid got the chicken fingers. Neither was eating them. I tried the chicken fingers. Dry, rubbery, and bland is the only way to describe it. How do you mess up chicken fingers.
I ordered bruschetta as an appetizer. It appeared that they took bread out of a bag and melted generic cheese over it. Not impressed at all- but I was hungry and ate it. Almost tasted like cafeteria food.
Next came the burger and fries. The burger was unseasoned hamburger and that was it. No taste what so ever. Completely bland is the only way to describe it. The fries were the same - bland .
The manager or owner did check with us twice to check how things were and was doing the sand for every table. We are not complainers so we just smiled and said fine. Besides, how do you tell someone that they are doing nothing correctly.
Beer- for being a micro brew - I don't know how they are in business. The beer was again very commercial like. For those who enjoy unique beers- skip this place. If you are not a beer conesuer - you will be fine.
Dessert- I skipped dessert but my wife and her friend got it and both said that the desserts were good and the only thing they enjoyed.
I can honestly say that Union Barrel Works failed on every level. I would have given it a 1 star but the food was edible- bland- but edible.
Skip this place and try somewhere else. If you think I'm being over critical check my reviews and see that I am fair.
