Great place with good selection of tens of beers. Pretzels with fancy dips are good edition to any beer. Try spicy tomato pretzel with apricot dip - delicious. Loved the caprese salad.

It's different, not much by the way of ambiance, but what is created in the kitchen is amazing, and keeps us coming back, the pretzel concoctions are superb! My husband loves the beer, I love the "wilcox" and we both love the menu, it's a must-try!

The Barley has a great selection of beers if that is your thing. Other drinks also served as well as their famous pretzels. Sandwiches are also good if you get hungry. Lots of locals who return time after time - thanks for a great evening Colin!

Popped in for lunch during holiday visit with family. Pretzels are awesome, dips delicious, sandwiches. In the group, Caprese, Roast Beef and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches all got rave reviews. Kids had pretzels with Nutella and Cream Cheese Frosting. The beer selection is wonderful and staff knowledgeable with their guidance.
