Really enjoyed our visits to Barnett's during our business stay in Waco. if you are looking for a nice selection of beers and some decent food away from the hustle and bustle of the college crowd this may be the place. Just a couple blocks from the convention center, we had burgers and Irish stew, average to a bit above, and a nice time talking with the locals.

We were well taken care of and there is darts and several flat screen TVs. Very different vibe than the Dancing Bear for sure. If you want of a bit more sophisticated place that is well run with a nice staff and decent food I would definitely recommend. Guinness, Harp, and a good collection of British and German beers on tap plus bottled beers from all over.

We enjoyed a night at this wonderful pub, the bartenders were very very knowledgeable..and fun. They make their own shot out of skittles and it is great, but they will not let the secret out on how its made....we did not eat while we were there but did see some of the food and it looked wonderful, cannot wait to return to eat some shepards pie, or the irish nacho...

FUN TIME

It is laid back feeling, couches, bar w/ all kinds of beer selections! Food is good and the atmosphere is just great friendly staff and family! Recommend it for anyone with a desire to experience an actual pub feeling w/ bartenders knowledgeable about the many different beer varieties they serve.

I hear the Shepherd's pie is great- too bad they ran out before I got there! Guess I just have to come back.
