Good variety of bourbons for tasting and a nice variety of cocktail choices. Food is okay, but nothing great. It is a nice place to meet friends and have drinks. They have a nice variety of wine and beer as well.

We visited the Bourbon Barrell on a Saturday night during their Happy Hour (5-7 pm). Beer, wine and pizza were half price. We opted to order off of their dinner menu. The menu is small but contains a good variety of options. My husband had...More
