    Barrel and Boar is a great place that I enjoy taking friends to. The wait staff is always amazing and the beer selection is not extensive but it is very well rounded. Usually the food is incredible. This last visit though, the burnt ends were a bit tough. Maybe it was a new person at the smoker? Being the first time that the Burnt Ends came out like this, I'll give it another chance. The other menu offerings are still very good. Can't think of anything else I've had here that I didn't thoroughly enjoy.

    From the front of the house welcome to our seating, the start of the experience was warm, welcoming & relaxed. Our server, Jackie, was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Our party of 4 enjoyed 4 different meals and each item was delicious, hot and served beautifully. The bread for the yummy brisket BLT was so good! The burnt end was juicy & tender, the mahi po boy was succulent and the buffalo burger was flavorful and juice. We will definitely be back!

    I ordered the brunch quesadilla- it was not good. Soggy tortilla, very little egg or salsa as advertised. The only thing edible was the chicken. The cinnamon French toast at our table lacked cinnamon flavor. The corn muffins were dry. The other two entrees were lackluster also. The smoked meats were good but the dishes as a whole were disappointing. We have had great meals here in the past but this was our first (and last) brunch.

    They were out of my selected entre, but the waitress was apologetic and very nice. Would like to see more vegetarian options on the menu, but the food I had was very good. This is one of the few non- fast food restaurants in Canal Winchester. Gad it’s there.

    I didn’t realize till I was looking at different places to go that Barrel and Boar had put one in Canal Winchester. And not loud and busy Gender Road Canal, in the actual town of Canal Winchester across from Shades. Really good, decent small band, definitely will go back. Had only been to the one at Creekside and had Smoked Factory catered. Definitely recommend it.

    Service was great. Considering it was restaurant week, figured food would be better. Corn was old, kernels already dried out. BLT brisket was like eating meat boiled in water..no flavor at all. Bread pudding was ok.

    My husband and I were looking for some place different to eat that was close to home. We live in Pickerington were the adult dining options are few. Chose this restaurant and had a great meal. We loved the music selection and the mini- cornbread muffins were delicious! We both ordered the brisket and were not disappointed. Shyann our waitress was on point. We ate in doors which is usually our preference. We will return to try out some other items.

    Our waitress Emma was amazing - friendly, accommodating and so helpful. First time at this a Barrel & Boar location after recently moving to CW - so appreciated the ambiance and decor. Will definitely be back to try the Lamb which they were out of by the time I placed my order.

    Have enjoyed this restaurant in the past but always thought it was a bit pricey for what it is. Now they have changed their menu and the food is subpar especially considering the price. My wife got burnt ends Mac and cheese -$18.50. Fine - if it was good. By burnt ends they meant chunks of beef where the fat had not been properly rendered and definitely not twice smoked. My burnt ends cheesesteak was much the same. Can’t see going back unless the menu changes and might give them another chance then.

    My wife enjoyed her brisket very much. Although the quality of my ribs were amazing, there was way too much rub on them and were very salty. She had ice tea, and I had a smoked old fashioned which were both very good. Second visit and overall was a good experience.

    Enjoyable evening celebrating friend’s birthday. Food was fabulous. Staff was personable and friendly adding to positive experience. Cheesy Fries appetizer a tad overpriced for portion. Will be back. Manager on duty, bartender playful and fun, came around to our table very personable hospitality that is lacking in most restaurants these days. It was greatly appreciated.
