Our waitress only came over when we tried to get her attention. Our food was delivered, and she never brought us silverware. We had to ask another waiter. Finally she came over and told us she needed to close out our bill because she was leaving. Was not impressed.

Overall, it was an OK birthday dinner. The waitress was nice but very busy. She was handling way too many tables and just stretched too thin. The food was "meh".

Good is awesome, setting is great and the beer is good.
However, post COVID service isn't there yet. Seems like either the servers don't know what good service is or just don't care.

I love this restaurant as it is close to my office. But I'd hesitate to go back right now and suggest others do so as well as there are some issues. Not sure if it is an inability to hire staff or what but there is conflicting information about whether you have to use cash or credit and what food is now available on what used to be a robust menu. No one seemed to care and we left before ordering as we truly didn't understand what was going on.

For us un-technical users, the phone menu and ordering from the outside tables was too confusing. The actual order page was never obvious. We eventually went inside to order from the bartender, which would have been worse if it was busy.
We assume the bartender got the tips and the servers that brought the food outside to our table got none.

Good food and comfortable distanced seating from other groups. Noise from a large corporate happy hour in center of restaurant was hard to ignore - needed to yell to our party of 6 to hear conversation. Service was reasonable but seemed stretched thin due to happy hour party.

If you sit outside, you have to ask for a menu, otherwise you have to use the QR code on the table to order and pay in advance. Did not like this.

Loved the atmosphere and the decor. The giant garage doors were open to have that indoor and outdoor vibe. We were seated right away with a reservation and the portions are wonderful. Enough to take some home if not super hungry. I also highly recommend the hot cappuccino.

Team lunch for 5 of us. They opened up the patio window/doors so your inside, but the outside is close by. It was too hot to eat outside directly so this was a nice way to still get that outside feel.

Barrel & Bushel's approach makes for a bizarre and annoying experience and soul-crushing for the poor servers who work there. The place itself is near-impossible to find, the woman I spoke to couldn't give us directions, the QR-code ordering didn't work, there was no one to help until we finally grabbed a server who explained the ridiculous system. But that's not all -- you have to pay and provide a tip before you've even been served, there was a mix-up with tables, and at one point, two servers were literally wandering around trying to figure out who to give their meals to. One of our orders was incorrect and the food was mediocre. The place seems to scream, "DON'T EVER COME BACK." We won't.

Did not have a good experience at this restaurant. My party was rushed out of the restaurant with no explanation. We have a group of 8 respectful, professional paying customers that the restaurant at one point refused to stop serving food or drinks to. Very unhappy with how the entire situation was handled.

Sat down and placed drink order quickly. Drinks came and the waiter never came back. After 24 minutes (maybe half full restaurant at this time) of us waiting to order food, I went to the bar to ask if our wait could come over at which point he came over a few minutes later.

Placed order and food out relatively quickly (maybe 10-15 mins) delivered by a food runner not by waiter. After ordering waiter did not return for another 35 mins at which point we declined drinks as our meals were over half way done. Took another 15 mins to get the check which involved us flagging the waiter down even though we were the only remaining table out of maybe 7 total.

During this time, the section we were in was closed and roped off for an afternoon party so there was just one other table in our section finishing up.

Food was average, price was average, but service was horrible especially with such an unoccupied restaurant. Won’t be coming back unless my work is paying for it and I can’t recommend anyone else visit either given this was service at 1/4 to maybe 1/2 occupied....a full house would easily be a 2+ hour lunch on a work day.
