We were rushed to place order and both got hamburgers mine with salad, my husband with onion straws. My salad was terrible so I was helping my husband eat his onion straws with my sandwich and the waitress came and took those without even

This is a fun place for large groups. They have one booth that seats 10 and a couple more for 8.

The food is good. The nachos are the best in town. Try their beer sampler. They give person one small glass of each beer they've brewed

We traditionally have lunch at Barley's Brewing Company every time I am in town for a convention. I enjoy the Turkey nut burgers. The place gets very crowded because it is right across from the convention center. Service is fast so the line goes quickly.

I just celebrated a birthday witha group of friends and had one of the best dining experiences of my life at Barley's. Although they don not take reservations they were able to seat our party of 10 in less than 1/2 hour on a busy Friday night. Our server was very freindly and when we were unsure about some of the beer choices shes let us try some to decide. They had a special "Firkin" beer on for Friday that she explained very well. Basically it is like beer was served way back in the day, like vikings would drink it! Awesome! The food was great. They had just started a new menu and everything we had was great and well worth the money. We basically had the compete opposite experience of "SKBeerFan" I wonder if he just caught them on a bad night or if he is just one of those unsufferably jerks that leaves bad reviews of good places because he is full of angst from living in his mom's basement :-)

Pros: Best Beer Around, Excellent Food

Cons: Parking can be a pain (but worth the trouble)

I lived in NYC for four years, and I got tired of paying four dollars for beer a long time ago. The atmosphere at Barley's is decent, but the Bartenders didn't pay attention to who was in need of a drink. I guess they are there to do something other then make money. Charging four dollars for a Budweiser is ludicrous for Columbus. I hope that the management reads this, because at these prices and service, I'll take my money elsewhere.

Pros: The place was dead. Plenty of room to move around.

Cons: Everything else. Didn't try the food.

I've gone to Barley's Alehouse #1 for the last time. I recently visited with a group of seven friends. There were only about 15 other diners in the entire restaurant, yet the hostess would not seat our partial group until we met the arbitrary standard of "half our group present." Understandable if there was a waiting list or if the restaurant was full - but the manager told me that there was no room for flexibility on this issue. We would not be seated with less than half of our group. Unfortunately, the other half was outside driving around looking for a place to park (totally full lot and street parking - unless you wanted to pay $8 to use the garage a block away). In any case, this is not the first time I have experienced poor service - several other times myself or my friends have been dealt with rudely or poorly by the staff. The food is over-priced for the quality (which isn't terrible, but it's not remarkable either). The beer list is stagnant and, frankly, boring for a BREWERY. None of the wait staff knows anything at all about beer - but they can rehearse one line about each beer. If the Elevator had a single beer worth drinking, I'd recommend it. As it is, I will now go only to Barley's Smokehouse, where beer is important and exciting, service is much better, and the food is worth the price.

Pros: location, beer quality is adequate

Cons: customer service, prices, parking, beer list

Barley's brews their own hand craft beer, which is very good. I love the Bloody Marys here. They are so hot and spicy and good! The food is very good too, great waitstaff and great prices.

I specifically went to the Barley's on 12/2 to sample their Christmas Ale. The bartender was fast, efficient and very friendly.

There were probably twenty people in the restaraunt on Sunday afternoon, if Friday's are crowded stop by on Sunday to drink a pint of beer and watch a game on one of the TV's at the bar.

Loved the inside of this pub. It was an old style, college style pub. Service was good, food was good and reasonably priced. Loved their wheat beer and had a good time in a good atmospheric restaurant. Definitely a place I would take someone from out of town. Even the parking wasn't all that bad!!

One of my favorite restaurants. Their beer is awesome and they also have great guest beers. Their BBQ is very good -- especially the wings.

Pros: Beer, BBQ

Cons: none

Barley's offers a nice menu with hand crafted, homemade beer selections. They often win local awards for their brewmaking and I can see why. the food is wonderful as well. Sauerkraut balls are delicious, so are the mussles and the reuben on marble rye. There is almost never a wait, even on game or show nights and service is very good. Highly recommended.

The beer there was without equal for micro-brew fans, but most surprisingly, the food was excellent as well. Not the standard pub fare. The menu was what you would expect at a much more formal (and Expensive) restaurant. I had the crab cakes and the India Pale Ale (perfectly hoppy) and my wife had grilled Wahoo (some sort of fish which we both liked very much) and Russian Imperial Stouts. Overall it was a very very nice meal.

Pros: Good Value, Friendly Staff

.

Barley's brews some of the best beer in America. I'm constantly amazed at how many people come in and order Bud Light or Guinness, when high-quality, expertly crafted cask-conditioned ale is available fresh daily. The food is good pub grub, but if you're going to order a mass-produced, watered-down beer, you may as well go somewhere else.

Pros: real ale, good beer, nachos

Barleys Alehouse No. 1 may not be the most upscale of places, but the atmosphere is good, the beer is good, and the people are good. It's a great place to go and to be with friends.

Barley's easily has the best beer in town, maybe the state, and definetly a strong competiter nation and world wide.
I have been patronizing the place for about 5 years and love it. However, the menu does need an overhaul. It seems every time I go there the menu has changed and one more of my favorite dishes removed. Rigitoni alfredo (i think that was what it was called), the mushroom trio is now inediable and the veggie burger is inconsistant. Not only that but as the food quality goes down the price goes up.
A BEER THAT GOOD DESERVES A BETTER MENU!
It's still worth the trip!~

Pros: great beer, good beer prices, atmosphere

Cons: food could be better

I don't visit the Arena District without stopping by Barley's for one of their excellent brews. If you go to Barley's and order a Bud Light you need to have your head examined.

Great food, although I lament the loss of their outstanding meatloaf. But beer is what it's all about at Barley's. I recommend their Alexander's Russian Imperial Stout, Old Oscar's Brown Sugar, and Robert Burns Scottish Export Ale.
