Stock & Barrel came recommended to us for good burgers. Throw in a selection of Bourbon and we have a Sunday afternoon planned.
Located in Market Square, there are 2 doors separated by outdoor seating. Only one door leads to the innards of the Stock & Barrel. Choose the one on the right. There are no indications that you are or are not entering the establishment but you will see what I mean if you choose to go there.
The interior is long and narrow. The bar was empty but most of the tables were full. We waited while an empty table had to be cleaned off for us. The table for 2 was small. So small that there wasn't room for the bill and my plate to occupy the same space at the the same time. The table also rocked which I thought about fixing myself with my napkin but thought it was better used for other things. Our menus only included one drink menu so while my companion was making her choice I was left to wonder. Our waiter came for drink orders and when I said there is only one drink menu he said he would come back later. So I guess we're sharing.
After bringing our drinks he mentioned a couple of specials. Keep in mind that we had menu's for 10 minutes and had decided but we both opted for the specials. 2 key things. He didn't give us the price of the specials nor did he write the orders down. Mine came out wrong and both specials turned out to be more expensive than anything else on the menu. Not cool. 2 burgers, fries, a wine and a cocktail cost over $50.
The bar was empty, presumably because of the uninviting metal chairs. There is a random TV that was on high up on one of the long walls. The brick was nice. The wood floor was antique in a fake way. The Stock & Barrel needs a manager to take charge, fix simple things that never should be, and give the building an identity.
