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.

First time here and not coming back. The service was slow ( took 20 mins to get our drinks). We ordered water and never got that. I ordered mushrooms and onions on my steak but when brought out didn’t have any. Must have fallen off I guess. I’m not a big complainer but I expected better than what we got. We didn’t feel important.

Food and service were great. Think some of the entree prices were little high but not far off the mark. I would go more often if plate prices were better. We were close to the front where the 2 person band played so volume was so loud wife and I couldn’t hear each other trying to talk. Otherwise was a great time.

I’m not sure if this review speaks for my 3 friends that I dined with as well but I’m not hurrying back to this place anytime soon.
Maybe it was because it was a Saturday night in Bel Air but we were seated promptly at 7:15pm but then things took a snail’s pace. We ordered cocktails and they came along right away. I had an old fashioned and enjoyed it. My friends had a glass of Merlot and the Barrel House punch which they enjoyed.
It must have been 45 minutes before we got our entrees..salads weren’t served until almost right before the meal was served. I had the stuffed shrimp and thought the shrimp (which was mostly imperial crab sauce) the broccoli and mashed potatoes were salty. Two of my friends had filets and the streak was tied up in string which they had trouble removing and wondered if they had eaten? My one friend did enjoy her Barrel house chicken.
Our server Emma was great so that balanced out the short comings. The ambience was non-existent..battery operated plastic candles on the tables. Plain red-orange walls with no artwork or wall hangings. I didn’t expect upscale modern furnishings but it looked like someone’s basement club room from the Eighties. This was a Birthday Dinner for me so next time I’ll know better. I also wondered why the place was still decorated for Christmas? It is February Lol.

We had dinner with friends who have only been here once for apps. They were very happy with the food and service .Our server was Corrine and she was very attentive and had great timing through the night . Food was great .Our favorite's were the Bacon wrapped jalapeno meatloaf , shrimp and grits and bbq brussel sprouts. Flavors in the dishes make you want more. I think they had around 10 beers on tap and quite a few bottles beers so you should be able to find something to your liking.Corrine was quick with recommendations based on what I liked and offered samples until I decided on a beer.

We’ve eaten here on several occasions and our food has always been great. This was Father’s Day and there was very large party which drove up the noise level a bit. I tried the crab soup this time and it was great. I highly recommend Barrel House.

We were downstairs for the band Eclipse which is a fantastic Journey tribute band. The waitress was excellent. Very attentive. We never had to go looking for her, she always knew when to check on us and I noticed that she was hustling throughout the night. I ordered a crab cake sandwich and it was very good. I can say that whether you are upstairs in the bar, down stairs in the hall or out on the deck, it is a good time. Thanks for a great evening. I would highly recommend the Barrel House to my friends.
