Yes, it's pricey but if you or a friend is a foody- well worth it. We sat at the chef's bar which provided the opportunity to watch the kitchen in all its glory yet allowed for an intimate dinner as well. The server was extremely...More

Barley Swine is amazing, The food is unique and delicious. He makes all his sauces, pickles and mixes. His ginger ale is made fresh. It is a farm to market and the menu changes often

Limited selection, less than a dozen, choices all constructed as small plates for a couple to share. We ordered two plates, ate them, ordered two more, ate them and kept going until we were full. Great, unusual, cutting edge stuff all very good. There is...More

Very nice place with portions to share. We tried all sorts of things, the beef, the duck (delicious!), the shitake pasta, all deliciously cooked! Even my picky 9 year ate some of the things. Great option if you are visiting the area.

Our first trip to Barley Swine lived up to expectation. Excellent service. The prix fix menu was a delight. Delicious melding of flavors, and artistic presentation.

Relatively limited selection of very creative small plates designed to be shared - which worked wonderfully for a couple's dinner. Attentive staff. Innovative, slightly quirky wine list. Their sign is hard to see at night, so look for the bright sign for Lick ice cream...More

We booked dinner by the chef's counter and asked for pescatarian/vegetarian options upfront. We were disappointed when seated to see the menu with only the normal, meat centric dishes on it. But when we asked if we could have the tasting menu in a pescatarian...More
