This is a pleasant laid back coffee house that serves lunch and dinner also. The wait staff are attentive and the food is very good. There is also a bar serving hard liquor, wine and beers. Every time I've come here I haven't been disappointed and would highly recommend this place.

Great place for a meal, glass of wine or a beer! Nice selection of wines and local craft beer. Food is consistently good with daily specials!

The bean and barrel always read the chalk board or you are missing out. The set menu is very good, but the real treats are on the board. That is my first choice most times. Had the Irish stew should had ordered seconds to take home. Always worth the drive to eat. Have not been disappointed so far.

I go here about once a week. I think the ownership and management have changed in the past 12 months. The wait staff work hard to keep things humming along. I'm happy w/ their wine and beer selection. Love that you can phone in an order and pick it up "at the drive thru". This is convenient when time is... More

Absolutely AMAZING burgers and fries there for dinner. The atmosphere is upscale, but the prices are reasonable. It was not too crowded, which made for a nice little escape from the noise of downtown Chapel Hill and Franklin Street for a dinner out. The waitress and the floor manager were so kind and grateful for our compliments on the food.... More

This place used to be great. Great food and great service. Both have gone down hill. Not to mention the "B" sanitation grade.... 😩

We had a business lunch last Saturday in the private room off the main restaurant. We enjoyed a nice lunch and the Cobb Salad was a highlight. The only negative was the A/C was on and the room was a bit too cool. Service was friendly and prompt.

I went here not having any idea what I was getting. This place is a coffee shop, a wine bar (has beer and liquor too), and a restaurant. The staff was awesome. Multiple members of the staff went above and beyond for no real reason. The burger that I had here was one of the best burgers I have had... More
