Always an excellent time. Between the delicious food and the great servers, our time spent at the Barvarian Inn is always enjoyable. This time was no different.

We went to Tap & Barrel for my father’s birthday. It was our first time and we will definitely be back!! We ordered the chicken wings and nachos as an appetizer and they were really good. We got the mixed meat platter and there was so much food on it. Definitely one of our new favorites.

Make reservations otherwise long waits. Greeter/Hostess kind and efficient. Nice kid friendly family restaurant. Little pricey for food, our waitress was kind, she seemed a little overwhelmed I say this because the amount of tables and guests per tables. Food is slow to come out. Our reservations were for 1:45pm arrived at 1:30pm they sat us immediately and our order was immediately retrieved we received our food at 2:40pm after asking about it. My kids loved their burgers my appetizer platter obviously had sat in the window a little longer because my chicken tenders were dry, and my cheese dip was crusted and dry on top. Loved the atmosphere though.

The service and ambiance were excellent. The food was great but I didn't like the sauce for my noodles or the cauliflower. Other than that, I had a great time.
