Barrel & Bushel Ratings and Reviews
The food was mostly so, so. The only good thing was the salted caramel fudge and the fried rice side. Brussel sprout salad was drenched in lemon, steak was burnt to a crisp on the outside, the Smith (can't remember the name) cake was dry. Service was SO slow. This is a casual environment and dinner shouldn't have taken over 2 hours. Wasn't the worst place in the world but not willing to give it a second chance.
Crowded and bustling on a Friday evening - in mostly a good way. Not great for a cozy date - tables a little on top of each other / quite loud. Food was amazing. Service was a little slow since it was so crowded - but when we let them know we had movie commitment afterwards - they were very accommodating. Overall very promising - I will try again a few times to figure out how to best enjoy this place.
First experience during lunch on Monday was terrible for a variety of reasons. First, the server was uneasy, passive, and dressed down to the point where I seriously wondered if he was filling in from the kitchen. Secondly, the fried and grilled chicken sandwiches are inedible because they use a deboned thigh or leg quarter, which is way too much skin and gristle for a sandwich. Should be advertised as a bad knife-and-fork sandwich. And lastly, the entire staff was so aloof that it had the vibe of one of those half-hearted hotel restaurants that exist soley for the bar. The only positive experience was the appetizer pretzel.
The food wasn’t that good. My carmalized cauliflower was sour. The ambiance, the cute monogram napkins, & designed menu makes you think the food will be better than it is. Husband ordered NY Strip and thought it was too chewy. 2 people ordered Hot Friend Chicken and thought it was good.
In general there are other places that would deliver a better meal for the same price. This might be better as a happy hour location than a special occasion meal or night out.
It’s hard to draw a complete impression of any restaurant on a day like Christmas. But if you’re open on Christmas, you should be prepared to offer good food, well served, at a decent price. Barrel & Bushel failed us on all counts. The meal started well enough with drinks served by our pleasant server, even though they were out of the wine my wife ordered. But that beginning was overshadowed by poor service, poorly prepared food, and high prices. The servers brought out my wife’s main dish, followed by my daughter’s about 5 minutes later. After another 10 minutes, mine arrived, but it was not what I ordered. My wife’s salmon was drenched in miso, and my daughter’s cod was bland and oily. Both were accompanied by the world’s largest, toughest stalks of broccoli. Finally my fried chicken and French toast arrived. But it was greasy and unwieldy. The price for this event approached $100, before a tip. We might return to Barrel & Bushel if it were the only place open, but probably not.
We went to Barrel and Bushel for Christmas dinner. The food was really delicious. The waiter was slow and not very friendly. We were having dinner with some family members who we don't see all of the time, so it was OK for us that it was slow service. Had we been there for a normal dinner it would have been maddening.
We were sitting in the dining room area. There is a door in that room that leads to the outside. People can exit, but not enter from that door. It was extremely cold when that door was opened. They should have not allowed that door to be opened on such a cold night.
So, basically, it is a nice restaurant with good food. Don't sit by the door if it is a cold night. And hopefully our waiter was not representative of the normal service.
I went to this restaurant for Christmas dinner (12/25/2017). Overall, the food was good, the view of the restaurant was nice, but the service was absolutely horrible. I initially greeted my waiter with "Merry Christmas," he then stated "I don't know how merry it is because its my first time working Christmas." From there, the service just went down hill. He didn't provide additional utensils as I asked for. He forgot to provide additional drinks as I asked. He didn't provide all of the food I ordered until I was half-way finished with my meal. The waiter's final pathetic stunt occurred when he gave me my bill and it was approximately $81. I gave the waiter a credit card with the bill and when he returned, I noticed he charged me for $90. I checked my initial bill again, which was the last of 3 receipts, and I realized he over charged me. I asked him to execute the charge again for the correct price and not the additional $9 bucks he added in, probably for himself I assume. If you go to this restaurant the will be good but be mindful that the service may suck.
Service was AWFUL. Server was rushing to clear our table, snatched the napkin from under my elbow, didn’t give us time to decide what we wanted to eat, brought our checks when we didn’t ask. TERRIBLE experience.
I had asked for manager at the end and he had apologized and brought us a round of drinks.
Fantastic. The food selection was eclectic and the preparation/taste was outstanding. It offers both main entrees and "American-style" tapas, with a truly extensive selection of craft beer, bourbons, and cocktails. Went on a Thursday evening--it was packed. It looked like the bar area and several private rooms had business holiday parties. We ate in the dining area---super service, great waitstaff. Given the proximity to Tyson's area businesses (Deloitte and BNY Mellon are across the street), and being located in the Hyatt / Tyson's mall complex, I suspect it's always busy. Highly recommend a reservation---easy to do on Open Table. Also recommend not / not parking in the E Garage. All 5 levels were full. You can park in any of the other mall garages and still only have a 5-10 min walk. Great experience, will return.
I ordered the burger which was pretty good. I had to seat on a communal table which wasn’t my favorite. It’s pretty noisy in there so if you’re looking for a romantic place or a place for date night I wouldn’t recommend. The bar area is pretty vibrant especially during the summer.
I wanted to like this restaurant but it was totally awful and overly priced. We ordered the ribeye steak and the scallops entrees. The steak had entirely too much chimichurrie sauce that made the steak too bitter and overly sour. The scallops had sand in every bite.
Although the food and service were very good, the noise level was so loud the only way we could talk over dinner was a mild yell. I was meeting my son for his birthday and i had driven in from out of town. Just too loud for a family birthday dinner. A better place to hang with friends for happy hour followed up by dinner later.
Very knowledgeable wait staff, not what you would expect from a hotel restaurant, food was a good mix...should have something for everyone. Stopped at the bar on the way out and the bartender was nice in answering our questions on some of the architectural elements. We’re both architects so noticed a lot of the nice detailing.
We loved the food & service. Our waiter Wes was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to order. We went there for thanksgiving dinner, 2 adults & 2 kids and we all enjoyed the food. Liked the ambience and lighting. The prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return
The vibe of this place is great - southern charm meets big city luxury. Minimal, but fresh ingredients. Good flavors. Pretty overpriced, unless you go for a sandwich. Don't bother with the salads, it was a plate sparsely covered in romaine, and that's it. I would go back with a fatter wallet to try their entrees or with a friend before a movie to grab an app and some happy hour (2-7p) drinks.
We've had several good meals at B&B, but Saturday was not a good experience. The food was very mediocre (like the chef had the night off) and service was slooooow. I really hope this doesn't become a trend. We'll probably try it again but that'll be it if the experience isn't better next time.
Met a friend for dinner last Friday. I ordered house wine: pinot grigio, beer shrimp and fried rice. The house wine was okay, beer shrimp was the best. I would order it again. However, the fried rice was really bland - would never order it again. Our server was very attentive.
