Full bar, food menu, on site made beers. Building used to be an A&W years back (17+). Being local in a small suburb this is a very friendly place, you feel like you should be here when you arrive. It is family friendly. Good service and fun people. Even thought this was my first visit -- I will be back... More

Beer was great!! Burger and fries just average. Service was good. Would go back again, but would probably order from the dinner menu after 5.

I visited the pub while they had the Oktober beer on tap and a special menu. When the chef heard that I was German he came to see who that German was. His food did not disappoint me, it was good and I enjoyed it. Very nice atmosphere, good food and good beers!!!

Beer is great. They brew using their own hops. Food is good but not great. Cozy atmosphere for beer lovers.

We decided to stop in since Barley John's was near out hotel. The building itself is shabby looking with an outdoor patio area surrounded by sunflowers and weeds. We went inside and it wasn,t much better. We sat on wooden chairs at a table. The service was extremely poor, We waited at least 20 minutes before our order was taken.... More

Great food and great beer options on tap. Second time that I've been here and I'll keep coming back. Very cute place. Wild brunette beer is my favorite.

Chose this place because of good reviews and wasn't disappointed. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and husband had a brat. Both tasted great. Loved the hot and crispy pub (waffle) fries. Enjoyed the outdoor seating. Definitely had a friendly, small neighborhood feel.

Always love the food and drinks at this place. A little noisy inside so we enjoy it best in the summer when we ca sit outside. Dog friendly and worth a visit for the food and beer choices.

We LOVE Barley John's! They always have something new on their special menu, and it's always a treat! We love everything we've ever tried, and they really work to incorporate local flavors with more exotic ones.

We went here on a Friday night and decided to get some food. The pizza we ordered tasted like a frozen pizza. It was dry, salty, and lacked any flavor at all. The beer was sub par compared to some of the awesome gems in the MSP area. At least the service was good. Never going back to eat the... More
