Visited today for the first time. Happened to be happy hour which was perfect. Friendly staff. Weather was nice so say outside. Had fresh oysters, deviled eggs, chicken wings - just appetizers - and of course beer. They have a nice selection of draft and bottled beers. Nice atmosphere. Hear the lamb stew and shepherd's pie are both delicious. We'll... More

We went to the Barley House looking for a light evening meal. They have a nice seating area outside with heaters to take off the chill if needed and good servers. The menu is not that varied and did not offer that many choices. The salads were just OK, but we did like the pretzel and beer cheese appetizer.

Atmosphere reminded me of a stop in a Irish Pub, food selection was fun and delicious. Happy that we were able to stop in and try some Spam Fries and Deep Fried Oreos...friendly staff, clean environment and tasty beer selections completed the adventure. Would like to visit again, my husband would appreciate this place.

I was with a group, watching the Superbowl next door at the Social Lounge. They don't serve food, but recommended ordering from Barley to bring back. FANTASTIC recommendation! Three of us had the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich (recommended by our Social Lounge server) which was unbelievable! One of the best sandwiches of my life, served with whisper-thin home made chips.... More

If you are really hungry, the southern fried chicken sandwich was awesome...huge, but awesome! The lamb burger was great too...just don't get it well done - lamb tastes terrible unless medium or med rare. Definitely try the kettle chips - they are light and crispy and perfect! The whiskey selection is great. Marie was an excellent waitress and Anthony was... More

I love the food here. I am a big fan of the Reuben and the margaritas! They have a really good spicy margarita also. I also really love the ribbon fries. Very unique flavor and scrumptious! Try the lamb burger! it's amazing!

I feel bad, because I like the staff and know many of them. I have been here in St. Augustine my entire life. The changes that were made are disappointing. I wont go in detail, but the dish I ALWAYS come for was butchered 3 times (its soup..). I was even told it had been sitting for so long that... More

I stopped here with my brother for a quick pint and snack on the outside deck. This place was packed inside that night. The outdoor deck is great on mild sunny days or cool evenings, so I didn't mind. I love the old tavern atmosphere on the inside. If you have never been here, grab a seat inside and enjoy... More

We had the poutine and it was ok, but not like I've had in Canada. The cheese curds were more like melted mozzarella and the gravy was too sweet. I liked the pork belly in it, but my wife didn't. They were out of Harp on draft, so I can't rate higher than average. If I lived here, I would... More
