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 at a reasonable price for Tysons. It was hard to find. It’s semi outside of mall 2nd floor next to Hyatt lobby.

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.

Had an 11:30 reservation on a Sunday. Disappointed that breakfast ended at 11:00 but was in formed that some breakfast foods were available. Ended up ordering crab and avocado toast. which was delicious. Very friendly and pleasant wait staff.

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.

If you're looking for a nice space with good drinks and good food, you can't go wrong with B&B. I would recommend it more for groups of 4 or more actually as it seems geared for large groups, rather than an intimate meal.

Kudos for Brianna, she was amazing! Very accommodating since it was my first visit and didn’t know that the outdoor seating is first come first serve however, it’s also cafe style (no server). She was able to seat us close to the outdoor seats and get great services. Love the Crab Sandwiches and the Jalapeño cocktails. She also comp. us free deserts!! Will definitely return with friends!

I was entertaining guest who just landed in DC from overseas, I needed a place near their hotel. I also did not know how tired they would be and if they had dietary restrictions. Barrel and Bushel fit all of these requirements. I wanted someplace easy but interesting.

Sat out on the patio on a gorgeous day, before most of the lunch crowd arrived. Patio tables have contactless service so if you want a server to ask questions, and interact with, I would suggest requesting a table inside. The food was great. Overall a fabulous experience!

Outstanding service and the food was great - will go again. Great location with outside options. Great selection of local beer. Be prepared for a lot of noise when busy. We had a group of 8 and super hard to hear down the table due to the noise.

The primary reason for selecting this restaurant was its convenient location and available parking nearby. The restaurant is a popular spot for corporate happy hours and other social events. The ambience of the restaurant is quite nice and they also have a nice outdoor seating area. They have a wide selection of beer and other drinks on the menu. The food is quite good, although a little heavy on the meat side and could do with some enhanced vegetarian options. The service staff is friendly and attentive. Overall a very pleasant experience and I would most definitely recommend to others.
