The food was great, however their social distancing was poor. Was happy we got a table in the dining room and our table was a bit separated from the other tables. Looking in the bar it was packed with no social distancing. The young servers need to stop pulling their masks below their nose. I would go back, after COVID is on the decline.

We order 4 drinks. The only one that taste right was the Vodka, Diet. The margarita had to much sour mix and the Key lime martini was gross. The food was ok, but not worth the charge. The Fallston chicken was smothered in sauce. The Barrel house burger was a typical burger. The server was great and friendly. I had a reservation for a high top in the bar area at 5pm. There were no open high tops when we arrived. She asked us if we would mind sitting in the dinning area and she will move us as soon as the tables get cleaned. Before we ordered our first drink 3 tables opened up and we were never given the chance to move. The hostess gave the tables to other people.

Took a little while for our waiter to get our first drink order, but the food was terrific. The salmon was outstanding and my wife said her filet was delicious

Luke was tending bar while the band was playing and he did an amazing job!! Kept his head together in the middle of a very needy crowd. Great room and amazing band. Food was the best. I'll be back!

Our first time to enjoy this restaurant to watch a favorite band and will definitely return... food was delicious atmosphere friendly and great but service was beyond expectations especially during Valentines weekend.. all servers and bartenders in lower level where we sat were courteous friendly and continued to ask if we needed anything... great experience highly recommend and will return! Even when we left not sure if manager or owner asked how our evening went ...

The food was very good. The service got off to a slow start but was ok after about a 15 minute wait after being seated. Over all though it was a good experience and I would definitely recommend

We went because we like the musician Josh Christina. We had to sit at the bar. I was surprised how great the food was. Green beans were perfection. Filet Mignon so tender and flavorful. Disappointed with the crabcake. Met lots of interesting people. Would definitely go back.

We arrived expecting a wait even with a reservation. We were seated right away. We had a great waiter who checked on us periodically. The music was good and the crowd was very polite. We enjoyed our evening out.

This was one of the worst meals I have ever eaten. I ordered the butternut squash noodles with lump crab and shrimp. What a received was uncooked butternut squash spirals, half cooked shrimp and zero crab meat. The sauce tasted awful - like the white wine was skunked. Sooo terrible!!! Any cook that lets something like that come out of the kitchen should not be cooking. The place was so unorganized. Never again - I would give zero stars if I could. The young servers was nice but did not have a clue.

We made a reservation and were seated immediately. I was concerned because the bar area was crowded and, because food was served, masks were not worn by customers; however, tables in the dining area on the other side of the entrance were spaced well apart and we felt comfortable. All the food was very good - especially the sweet potato fries and shrimp tacos. We would definitely go back!

The service and food were excellent, and we very much enjoyed the live music (Annie and saxophonist). The dance floor is very smooth and clean, and we enjoyed dancing to the live music on it.

We made reservations for dinner and to see one of our favorite local bands. We r kinda leary due to covid but the way the downstairs was aet up was perfect. Everyone was responsible with following the mask policy. Our server Josh was awesome and the food was very good as well. We will definitely be going back. Thanks for the great, safe hospitality.

The band was awesome. The food was ok but very limited menu. Our table was excellent. The service was not good. The waiter was good until the band started. Drinks were empty the band had to actually say on their microphone that our table was waiting on service. Had to keep going into bar to get our own drinks. I would recommend the fallston barrel house but depends on the venue

Our waitress and trainee really made it a great night for our family. We were out for my son's birthday and they made it all that much better. Even celebrated with a candle and stepped in to sing Happy Birthday! We certainly will be back!!

Food was delicious especially the shrimp tacos. Loved the mason jars used for your drink. Really good service. Not a huge fan of dining area as it could use some updating but this will not deter me from going back and giving plenty of other menu items a try. Highly recommend.

Did not expect to be sitting outside, but the weather was great. Being able to hear the band and know the songs that were being played was a plus. The only concern was that we ordered an appetizer and it seemed to take much longer than normal. When the appetizer was brought to the table, our dinner came very shortly thereafter. Other than that, we enjoyed the evening and the food was wonderful.

Made reservations for 7:15. When we got there the young lady at the hostess stand seemed confused while another said we would have to wait at least 20 minutes. We did wait another 20. I stated in the reservations I wanted to be sat away from the band. We were away but we were sit outside and it was so loud you couldn’t talk to your table mates without screaming. You basically just had to sit back and listen to the music. It took about 15 minutes for someone to come take our drink order. We ordered an appetizer, salad and entree. They all came out at the same time and took about 30 minutes to get to us. The shrimp and crab cakes were really good. Steak was ok but cold and a little lacking in flavor. Our waitress was very sweet. The band playing should probably not have been playing at a restaurant that had children. There were so many F bombs being dropped. One song in particular repeated the phrase F you Mothet F’er repeatedly. As a matter of fact I think that was the entire lyrics of the song. We were not offended but I was certainly expecting a more fine dining experience than what we got. The waitress did tell us this was not the typical band they have playing. This band had a huge following and seriously wish them success but the wrong venue.
Yes I would go back for the crab cakes but would definitely check the entertainment before hand. I prefer no band so nothing against this one. It was overall too loud to enjoy our dinner.

Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We were dining with my elderly mother who would have preferred being further away from the music. Planning to return with that in mind.

I had made reservations for 6pm near the band. We were sat at table #17. This is a metal table with metal chairs and the su was blazing and blinding reflecting off of the table. We asked our server if we could moveto a shaded table. He left to see what could be done and thank goodness we were able to move to table 20. That was a reliefm otherwise we would have left after our first drink. For the life of me I can't remember his name. Thank you to him.

We attended a music venue. Our table was reserved as requested. We had a high-top for 2. The wait service was good. We had chicken tenders which were tasty but a bit dry. The floor is cement. The high-top tables and chairs need to be stabilized as they wobble; some severely. Could be floor related. The room is a nice size so you never feel cramped, but there's no real aviance. There is only one bar in the hall itself so depending on attendance, you may have to wait a bit for a drink.
We had fun, the band, Oracle, was great as always. They are about the only band I would pay $15 a head to see. The actual food/ drink bill was only like $26 so it wasn't that expensive for the evening. We try to limit alcohol to 2 drinks a piece.

The food was not great, and three members of our party had stomach issues after eating here. We all agreed that the food was not a good value for the price and wish we had gone somewhere else to celebrate birthdays. We did appreciate the free dessert for my children’s birthdays however. The server was pleasant and attentive as well.
