    This place is NOT GOOD. The service is good, but unfortunately the food is not. The oysters were served warm-ish and tasted off, and the sangria was very weak.

    Don't go here unless you have to. The food is mediocre at best and the pitcher of sangria was primarily ice. Must say the service wasn't bad at all.

    Great happy hour. $4 beer, $6 carafe of wine, and $1.25 oysters!

    The main reason to eat at the Barrel is the covered sidewalk patio, which is lovely on a warm summer afternoon. The garlic shrimp is tasty too. Service is slow.

    The cocktails and food were are on point. Service was kinda bad. They totally forgot about our table several times.

    This place is great for a casual lunch with a lovely glass of wine. The music is also a plus.

    They have a great happy hour that includes drinks and food. Good place for groups to have some cocktails and share a few snacks (love the beet and shrimp pintxos).

    Great decor & price-- always wonder why it's empty for brunch. Then I hear the corny 80's music, see one server manning the place, and remember how unmemorable the food is. And keep walking past.

    Come here during off hours to appreciate the ambiance and the fact that pretty much everything is made of wood.

    Fresh oysters and clams, sooo good and $1 each, and a mixology bar with fresh cocktails, the whole place makes you feel like youre inside a giant barrel. A must go!!!!

    Not what I expected. This is what it would taste like if TGI Fridays served "tapas". Generally heavy, greasy, and with low quality ingredients (tomatoes specifically). Sangria tastes like grape juice.

    Vegetarians beware. They sporadically make their veggie-sounding soups with chicken stock. It depends on the chef. What a waste.

    What makes for a good Sunday? The fact that The Barrel extends their already happy hour every Sunday – Thursday from 7 p.m. to close if you sit at the bar. That's right.

    One of our favorite places for brunch: it's never crowded when we've gone, not too loud and ALWAYS excellent food at a great price!

    If you order the "KGB" drink while wearing a Russian fur hat, the bartender will call you "Komrade". True story!
