I stopped here based on the high ratings on TA. The exterior is very non-de script but inside is a cool atmosphere. It's a combination of traditional bar/sports bar/restaurant. I had the pulled pork and ribs and it was very good. Service was excellent and...fast, even though it was busy. The only complaint I could see people having is the noise level, as it was pretty high. This didn't really bother me though.More

From beginning to end, from the ordering process to the stream lined pickup, Broken Barrel is an absolute pleasure! The food was delicious and raved over. The contact person was fabulous. The sheer amount of food provided was fantastic! I wish I could give 10...stars! We will definitely order again!More

Just finished moving my son into his apartment and needed dinner. Great selection of beers and very enjoyable pork platter. They were stuggling with supplies due to covid, but Abigail provided great service to us. I look forward to stopping by when we visit at...Thanksgiving time.More

Ok, we should have known what days they served ribs. Not Mon and Tues. Sad. We doubled down on wings, smoked turkey and pulled pork. That gave us three sides and four sauces. Way good wings. Don’t need no stinkin’ sauce on them, but we...could. A bit expensive but plenty to eat for two. BTW we did take out so many comments we can’t answer.More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant with her classmate and her husband. The food and service were excellent. Jessica was our server and she is great. Very nice meals for a decent price. I would eat there again.

Before you decide on food take a look at the beer menus. I like the rotating draft menu. Then there is the BBQ, oh the choices. Must have the Bleu Fries. If you happen to go in on a Friday, they do offer brisket. I...like everything that they serve.More

We have been to the Broken Barrel several times and every time the service is great the food is melt in your mouth good. The do an outstanding job as well as the chefs that cook the food. The fact you can have the BBQ...chicken or pork served dry or you can add any of the sauces which are over the top. I would like to say my favorite sandwich is the chicken,Ruben and pulled pork, OK I have 3 favorite sandwiches and each one is my favorite.More
