Met a friend for lunch and enjoyed the good food, service and ambiance. Was sorry that I was unable to sample their bourbon selection. Next time!

Why stick with a knowledgeable and nice bartender in Sarah when you can combine this with an excellent food experience ... and do it in one place: Barrel + Rye, where even the salad is good.

Nice outside area for dining. They were out of a few choices, so I couldn't get pot roast grilled cheese which sounded good. Burger was fine and the salad and pork sandwich were appreciated by others in our group. Several local beers available, but nothing...More

I should expand on my answer below. Little bit. They so have gluten free options; however, they are not categorized on the menu as such. The wait staff can give you all the options, from salads to burgers. They'll do their... More
