The menu is cut in half and you are given the urge menu with it. Most wines are no longer being restocked. Not sure what is happening but sadly it looks like barrel room is on its way out.

Have been going there for a few years but new ownership is not tuning in to quality but only quantity .To bad it is a shame.I have heard in my local neighborhood about it but had to check it out.Thank God we have plenty of local options

However, 3 of us ordered the steak salad but the meat had a lot of grizzle in it and was hard to cut. I have had the steak salad before and it was always tender and delicious but not this time. However, our waiter brought over another order of steak and it was much better.

It seems all workers and food are at urge and the barrel room is only used for seating. The menu has been trimmed down from what it was a few years ago. If I wanted to eat gastropub food and order off of urges menu, I would have just made a reservation there. Additionally The barrel room did not stock the wines we had enjoyed in the past.

It took more than 20 minutes to get the appetizer after ordering. The server was pleasant and helpful when he was at the table, but never asked how everything was, if we wanted additional drinks, didn’t refill waters. When we were ready for the check, it was another long wait after flagging him down. If they were short-staffed, a communication of such would have set expectations, rather than us being frustrated at the lack of attention and long wait times.

I miss the casual leather coach seating, having to go around to the back door is tacky. The lighting is so bright I felt like I was at Denny’s. My food was cold. It’s just not the same. Didn’t like the sea bass, steak was good. Wine was great. People were fine but the ambiance has suffered greatly. 😢

Personnel were understanding and did sort it out, giving my friend and me options regarding where to eat. We just had salads and appetizers (garlic fries were tasty, and my friend has a thing for the French Onion Soup...avocado was left out of our Caesar salads, so we had to ask for it to be added back in...overall, service was a bit spotty, but when it came it was good), which were fine. A waiter inadvertently knocked over a present for my friend that was wine and thus broke; I was impressed that they replaced that wine gift of mine with a wine from the restaurant.

It is not longer that quaint and cozy restaurant it once was. I'm sad, because i really did like the Barrel room. :(

We were a table of four and the food was OK to good. The service was ok. Once we got our food, we were not checked on even once. We wanted to order another bottle of wine and had to flag down a staff member as our server had not been seen for at least 20 minutes. We also had to request our check despite the fact that it was obvious they were waiting for us and one other table to finish so they could close. I.E., they turned off the music, yet had not given us our check, despite empty plates for a long time. I know the industry is short staffed, but our server and others were not that busy and were still not attentive. I won't be returning for awhile.

We had a few people skip out at the last minute but everyone was still accommodating of us. The food was excellent and the bread pudding was just superb- perfect crispness on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. I like it that they are working with Urge so we can get items from both menus. Had a good time and definitely plan to come back.

I was looking for a new place for a date night but didn’t want to go downtown, and saw a few good reviews on the Barrel Room and decided to try it out and it didn’t disappoint. The scenery was good, we sat outside and the outside noise wasn’t Disturbing as we had dinner at 6pm and the outside seating is near a sports bar. The menu was limited but had a good choices. I had the lamb chops and my wife had the jambalaya. We both had the apple pecan salad along with our dinner. Both dishes arrived in a timely manner (10-15min after order) good size portions. I had a glass of Rizleing white wine, good size glass and good price. After our meal, we had a dessert, the chocolate cake and ice cream, very delicious. Overall I recommend this place for anyone looking for a new place for a 1st date, date night or a group dinner.

The kitchen is being remodeled and the food came from the sister site, Urge. The food we had was good but the menu was not the same.

The jambalaya was excellent, but my wife felt her brisket had a bit more fat on it than she thought it should. The wines were very good, and service excellent. One of our favorite places to eat.

The concept, menu, and location are always enticing. Our reservations were for outside at the Barrel Room, but their system showed us indoors at the adjacent pub. They seated us at the Barrel room, after I showed them our open table reservations from my phone. The outside ambience is great- with the lights in the courtyard. The two restaurants seemed to be using one kitchen and shared staff. The Charcuterie board was good, but our entrees were mediocre. The service was poor. We had to track down our server at each step /course. After two hours for an appetizer and entree, We literally had to walk over to the adjacent gastropub to request the bill and pay. We didn’t have a third hour to ask/wait for boxes and skipped out on dessert. Our restaurant didn’t even feel that busy to warrant this level of delayed service. There was no acknowledgement at all from the manager or waiter about the subpar service. We will not be returning.

We lived that you could order from The Barrell Room or Urge, since they are owned by the same group. That is a great concept. The patios at both venues were welcoming and very lively. We sat inside and the ambiance was nice. Our server, Sergio, was very attentive. He made us feel welcome. The prosciutto, pear and arugula with balsamic glaze was perfect. as was our salad. I would highly recommend The Barrel Room for great food and ambiance.

I had made reservations for inside but turns out their AC wasn't working so they seated us on the patio which turned out to be amazing. The food is what always shines here, have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. It's clear they have had challenges due to COVID, bear with them and enjoy the food!

They were using the same kitchen as a place called Urbe and gave us both menus to choose from. Patio is so cute where we were seated. We came because of the cheese board and it did not disappoint at all. All cheeses we selected were excellent. Real local treasure I highly recommend for visitors to the area and locals alike.
