Laid back atmosphere to enjoy home made pretzels and a nice cold beer. Friendly service, great food and plenty of local beers available. The warm pretzels with your choice of dipping sauces are fantastic. Sandwiches with pretzel buns available as well.

Excellent beer and food. Pretzel sandwiches are great. Expect a long wait for food due to limited kitchen

Great beer, bartender and sandwiches! The bartender was very helpful with me tasting different IPA’s before selecting a local one! The BLT sandwich on a pretzel roll was delicious! Can’t wait to go back again sometime!

Took my daughters out for lunch. We had the grilled cheese and meatball sandwiches on their fantastic pretzels. Our sandwiches were hot and tasty. Sandwiches are served with chips of your choice. Even on a midweek day, there were quite a few patrons for lunch....More

The barley has great beer choices but what we reallt go for are their pretzel sandwiches - delish! Their pretzels are worth the trip even if you don't really like beer.

I'd say yes, during the day. But it really has a pub atmosphere, so I agree that i may not be a suitable in the evening.

They have freshly baked pretzels with a large variety of dips, including honey mustard, or nutella. And the prices are very reasonable: I recall between $3-8. But yes, it is a bar...
