    Please don’t go here for brunch! Dinner is good, but brunch is absolutely abysmal. The chicken and waffles are just gritty pulled chicken (texture is like meat with freezer burn) and the entire dish is swimming in a literal bowl of syrup. The waffles are saturated. Bacon nearly raw (it had obviously been cooked folded, and thus couldn’t cook through all the way). Even the mimosa was bad. How do you mess up a mimosa? Do not recommend!!!

    My part of 5’s overall experience was very good. The burnt ends were a little drier than expected and several pieces were chunks of fat, decadently delicious. My husband’s sandwich needed to be redone & we waited at least 25 mins for that. He was extremely hungry so that dampened our experience, but the other 3 meals were very good. We were comped 3 meals which was very nice, so we only paid for those drinks. Overall, it was a good time. The waitress & manager were very hospitable, so we probably will go back to give it another try.

    They were extremely under-staffed, and we waited a while to be greeted, but the server we had was great! She was apologetic for the wait and got our order in right away which came out fast and tasted amazing. Aside from having to wait a bit longer for things (which we completely understood and didn’t mind as we weren’t in a rush), we love this place.

    Barrel & Boar- GahannaResponded on 29 October 2022We truly appreciate your patience, being understaffed is an issue that we normally do not have to deal with. Fortunately having guest that are understanding like you help calm the storm during a busy dinner. Thank you so much for your support.

    We chose this location based on excellent reviews online. It did not disappoint! Wonderful gluten free options and a great selection of food on the menu. The burgers were out of this world! Highly recommend the burnt tips and watermelon appetizers. We will return when we visit Columbus again.

    Food was undercooked and small portions not worth the price. We ordered the brisket and they only gave us three pieces three strips of brisket for $22 not worth the price. My burger was undercooked and I had to ask him to recook it and it was still undercook I don't recommend this restaurant

    Wonderful food, service, environment! We had an incident on the patio where a huge dog whose owner was a customer, attacked a smaller dog passing by. The dog knocked over a table full of glass right behind us and created a big broken glass mess. This is the only reason I’m not giving 5 stars for overall experience. Have you considered asking people with huge dogs to eat inside? Other than that, it was outstanding!

    We were provided water at seating, but didn't receive ordered drinks until after our food was brought out, which was 45 minutes from seating. Ribs and burnt ends were tough. Green beans were cold and under cooked. The staff was friendly but service was very slow. That may have been a staffing issue, we only saw 2 waiters during the hour and half we were there. Ambiance is great though

    Appetizers and entrees were good. Dining out has experienced reduced portions coupled with increased prices across the industry and it was evident on this visit. The burnt ends appetizer wasn't generous, but the loaded fries were satisfactory. Entrees were satifying, but no need for doggy bags. Service was great.

    The service was good. One of our orders was messed up. They made it right, but it took a while to get it, and everyone was done eating. The ribs I had were dried out on one side, which made them tough. The drinks were good. There was a live band, which was fun, but loud. Made talking to each over difficult. Overall, things were good.

    We came specifically on Father’s Day for the Sunday Brunch Bar but was told this hasn’t happened since covid started although it is listed in the OpenTable menu. Something about how Open Table hasn’t changed it after being told 🤷🏽‍♀️. We were disappointed but pivoted and ordered chicken & waffles, pancakes and a burger. The chicken & waffles aren’t what you’re used to but they were good, spicy, but good.

    Our table is ready right away which was very nice. It wasn’t busy. The food was good for the most part. The salmon my sister ordered was dry. The first three beers I selected were not available due to issues with the dispensing of it which was disappointing. Our waitress was phenomenal and very sincerely apologetic for the issue with the beer and she made a nice environment for us. Thank you

    Barrel and Boar need to update their menu on OpenTable. They do not serve a brunch buffet. They serve off the menu. Had my heart set on the buffet for everyone for my dad’s 71st Bday just to be told that they haven’t had it since Covid. That probably was why the place was almost empty. Everyone ordered and nobody was overly impressed with anything. It was average food for a above average price. The egg frittata was supposed to be filled with meat and veggies… got over cooked eggs with overcooked ham with some onions and peppers. My wife didn’t even finish it. Their lunch and dinner food is incredible but we will never go back for brunch again.
