Barley’s is one of my favorite brew pubs. It is situated a good walking distance from the Hockey arena and it’s a good place to stop before and after games. The ambieance is pretty comfy with a lot fo wood and vintage beer decorations. The food is pretty solid, but nothing fantastic. Service is quick, pleasant and accurate. Often they have six or so of their own bres on tap with three being permenant and the rest being seasonal or whatnot. A definite place to check out while in town. Also across from the convention center. Great location for that too.

Didn’t exactly know where to go in the Columbus area, just passing through.
Decided on here.
Nice clean atmosphere with good service, the place wasn’t packed but still service was good. I asked for an ESB but was told they were out and then the waitress said she’d discount my flight. Uh...that definitely worked. 6 samples ranging from their blood orange wheat beer to their sexual chocolate. All were good. I had fish n’ chips which were very good. Overall, weird how I asked for a beer and then they discounted my flight just because they actually didn’t have it. Am I arguing? Hell no. That’s exceptional business. If more businesses did what Barley’s did. If I lived closer, I’d be there more often.

Nice pub atmosphere. I sat at the square bar just inside the door. Beer prices are excellent and food prices are going rate. Service was good especially since the Arnold was going on. My burger was pretty good and good side salad. I really liked the blood thirst wheat, so I hope to come back.

Chill pub-type atmosphere. It has the cozy feel of a relaxing meeting place with a local, townsy feel within the city. Friendly service and patrons as well as tasty, food - mostly comfort style offerings, but it’s done well. They have a good selection of their beers available and sell 2oz samplers for $0.75 a piece.

My wife and I stayed over night near the Convention center and this brewery was within easy walking distance. It has a cool old pub vibe to it. We did not park and I have no idea where parking would be found. This is a very busy area. Food was good and upscale. I had about 10 of their samplers and they cost something like 75 cents apiece! Some of them were exceptional and all were solid. As well as their own beers they had a few guest taps as well as macros.

Would I go back? Yes.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. Street parking only, but that didn’t seem to pose a problem despite being right in the middle of downtown Columbus. Not too much of a crowd in here and I was able to grab a seat at the bar and get a sample of all the house beers on tap, cask, and nitro. Pretty sold house beers. Bartender seemed knowledgeable and was attentively and courteous. I didn’t order anything to eat, but the menu was the same as Barleys #2, which I had eaten at a couple hours earlier. Very good experience overall.

Barley’s is a rather large restaurant with a good sized bar. When I went the place was empty. I like the look and feel of this place, it’s nice.
Service was quick and friendly, no complaints.
A nice variety of beer on tap all brewed on premises aside from a few guest beers.
The food was pretty darn good here, I sampled a few things my friends got and everything was great, better than the two beers I had.
We went on a day with half-priced burgers, can’t beat the value we got.
I would definitely come here again on half-priced burger night to have a great burger and a pint of something new. I would also recommend others come here to try it out.

Went here for lunch two consecutive days during a convention across the street. Both days the service seemed unprepared for the rush, but the food was pretty good and the beers were excellent.

This is an okay option if you are in the area. I found the food to be lacking and the beer just adequate. Our server was attentive and nice enough. I had hoped for more though.

Visited mid-afternoon on a Tuesday. Bar is located just north of the parking lot for the North Market, which makes for a good combination of wandering around the market, then settling in for a beer. The interior is classic bar, lots of dark wood and chrome fixtures. Place feels a bit worn, but in a comfortable way. The service was great, very engaging, offerred up samples, etc. I only had time for one beer, and no food. In addition to their own beers, they had a number of guests as well. Overall, solid beer and a good ambiance.
