World class crabs. Great service. Music way too loud, causes patrons to yell to talk which raises the volume even more.

service was superb, fillet mignon was excellent but other dishes such as the crabcake and salmon were good.

Being mothers day, it took a little longer to receive our orders. The waitress was very attentive and checked on us often.
All of our orders (four of us) were received at the same time which is always a plus.
The brunch food was (breakfast items) was tasty.

Having eaten at the Fallston Barrel House before, we had no concerns meeting my son here again for a Mother's Day celebration one day early, since it is a good midway point between where we live, and he lives. They were busy, but that did not impact service, which was very good. The waiter was attentive, and checked back regularly with us, even when it became apparent that something must have gone wrong with our entrees when after 55 minutes we still didn't have them. He was very apologetic, and even comped us a round of drinks while we waited. When the food came, the quality and appearance was definitely not consistent. There was nothing wrong with mine - a filet mignon entree, with everything on the plate appearing freshly prepared, but my son's plate was another matter entirely. His filet mignon was sitting on a dried out puddle left behind by another steak of a different size and shape entirely, and his mashed potatoes were absolutely yellow and covered with a "skin," while mine were white and soft. They didn't even look like they could have come out of the same pot, nor taste like it (he didn't eat them. . . .) The appearance of the entire plate was quite unappetizing. My husband's chicken cheesesteak WOULD have been good if it hadn't sat for a very long time, but by the time he got it, it was a congealed cold lump on a roll instead of a warm melty cheesesteak. Neither my husband or son said anything to the waiter, because neither wanted to wait even longer for more food to be prepared, but they were very disappointed. The one positive was that the crab cake appetizer was very good. The brussell sprout appetizer was "meh" - too much barbecue sauce on them. All in all, not a very good experience. May be time to look for another halfway meeting point for future dinners.

Went to dinner with a friend last Friday night. Service was great, but the food was disappointing. I ordered a turkey wrap and it was horrible. I planned to just not eat it, but the waiter insisted I exchange it for something else. I ordered the nachos and crab dip, which was a better choice, but just ok. They had a musician playing music on the bar side. It was way too loud for such a small dining area! We sat on the dining side of the restaurant and had to shout at each other to communicate. I can’t even imagine how loud it was on the bar side!! It sounded like they had speakers in the dining side pumping the music in there. If that’s the case, they need to turn down the music. My voice sounded horse by the time I got home from shouting. Bands and loud music are awesome in bars in the late evening, but not while dining at 7pm. I really wanted to like it there, but I was not impressed.

Was a little too loud. Additional servers are needed with the more popular bands like Never Never

I think they should have the better beer on tap (I was told it was like 16 different draft/ craft beers upstairs) - in the hall downstairs as well. With the name "Barrell House" any of the specialty beers need to be available for a show - especially with table servers. I can see if people had to go upto the bar to order drinks or a beer tub attendant like they have at most shows why 16 different draft beers would not make sense. Thanks. I hope to come up for more good shows - Never Never was excellent! That's for sure.

I reserved a table outside. Was seated, given menus and then asked to move inside because there was a band and they would charge me a cover fee. I left. Horrible atmosphere, rude staff.

I had a really good time when were there. I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if I hadn't been stuck up against a wall by the band. I only came for the band. And definitely would have enjoyed the night much more if I could have seen them from the front. Beside the fact that it was too loud where I was sitting since we were right by the band. Not the bands fault. I even asked if we could move to another seat. I did reserve well in advance, so it wasn't like it was last minute. I had a cobb salad with chicken. Ordered orange crushes as well. Food and drinks both delicious. Seating arrangement, not so much.

The food was great, however their social distancing was poor. Was happy we got a table in the dining room and our table was a bit separated from the other tables. Looking in the bar it was packed with no social distancing. The young servers need to stop pulling their masks below their nose. I would go back, after COVID is on the decline.

We order 4 drinks. The only one that taste right was the Vodka, Diet. The margarita had to much sour mix and the Key lime martini was gross. The food was ok, but not worth the charge. The Fallston chicken was smothered in sauce. The Barrel house burger was a typical burger. The server was great and friendly. I had a reservation for a high top in the bar area at 5pm. There were no open high tops when we arrived. She asked us if we would mind sitting in the dinning area and she will move us as soon as the tables get cleaned. Before we ordered our first drink 3 tables opened up and we were never given the chance to move. The hostess gave the tables to other people.

Our first time to enjoy this restaurant to watch a favorite band and will definitely return... food was delicious atmosphere friendly and great but service was beyond expectations especially during Valentines weekend.. all servers and bartenders in lower level where we sat were courteous friendly and continued to ask if we needed anything... great experience highly recommend and will return! Even when we left not sure if manager or owner asked how our evening went ...

We went because we like the musician Josh Christina. We had to sit at the bar. I was surprised how great the food was. Green beans were perfection. Filet Mignon so tender and flavorful. Disappointed with the crabcake. Met lots of interesting people. Would definitely go back.
