    Over priced food and NO internet reception so when you need to show your proof of vax and you’re not gonna it’s Telstra, good luck. Make sure you take a screen shot of your certificate to show. When asked if they had internet to borrow it was a firm “no!” And I had to drive to find coverage on a hill. Only to finally be allowed in and eat meh food that alright but super overpriced. Eehhhhh all round. Probably won’t return.

    The ambience was incredible with a fire pit creating an incredible outdoor environment. Food was delicious and fresh off the fire . Was prepared very quickly as well. The pizza is a must try and boxes were readily available for our leftovers Highly recommended

    Food and service very good, as usual. Very disappointing that you ran out of cider over the Easter weekend - a trip to town by you to be able to offer any brand of cider for those who prefer it would have made for a better experience.

    Best place to eat around the area, service is friendly and helpful- food came out quicker than any fast food drive through and have a pretty damn good ginger beer!! Love the convenience of QR code ordering from the table, if you head out this way be prepared to settle in for a while 🤙🏼

    As you enter this venue the whole place is beautiful! Such a lovely out door dining area! Very friendly & welcoming staff. Lovely homemade goodies to purchase, gifts or for yourself… The food was exceptional. Had to try a board with several varieties of meat on & it did not disappoint! A must try restaurant if you are in this area. We will be back for sure!

    The OG BBQ style food is absolutely authentic and delicious. the staff are so friendly and personable and nothing is too much trouble. Love the laid back atmosphere. My only issue is needing a sleep after such a big meal. Accommodation may be the next upgrade people :)

    I think Burnt Barrel is very hit and miss, we’ve recently attended and the food was very dry and some of the beverages have a very small portion size for the price - an unreasonable amount. Service is pretty good.

Your staff are wonderful and Becky seems to be there every time we come and eat. She always greets people with a smile.

    We went here as part of a New Leaf Connect Tour which departs from Dongara. As part of the tour we received a tasting board on arrival which was delicious! We then ordered from the menu and everything was awesome. We all went home with food comas - highly recommended!

    Positive start the burnt ends,bthe bread and the beans were really good and worth the effort. However the ribs had no meat, the slaw and salad were bland and tasteless and the pulled pork was bland and cold when it arrived at our table.

    The Burnt Barrel is the whole package: mouth watering food, relaxed atmosphere, super friendly staff and an allover amazing experience. Our go-to meal is the Southern Fried Chicken with the Dirty Street Fries Upgrade and the Mac & Cheese on the side, never ceases to amaze! That with a pint of Dingo Lager or Crew Brew makes the perfect dining experience for us. We just love coming out here. Thank you!

    Great venue and food was lovely however really don’t recommend going on a hot day as it’s extremely uncomfortable and no way to cool down. We ate our lunch and got out of there as quickly as possible! Outside fans and a mist system would be a huge plus!
