I have been going to Broken Barrel since they opened years ago. The food is consistently good - i love their pulled pork sandwiches and they are known for their smoked wings. The smoked wings are so good they don't even need a sauce. I'm also a huge fan of their baked beans. They've got DOZENS of beers on draft and even more bottled. Staff is always friendly and this is a place I can count on even if i bring a big group after work with no notice. Weekly trivia, annual beer fest, holiday events...they've got it all!

Disappointed they ran out of ribs but had pulled pork sandwich which was delicious. No one complained about their food. smoked wings were delicious, chips were so good, try the blue cheese chips. Sweet potato fries awesome. the bourbon bbq was so good,, wanted to bring it home . Tried Holy Grail gold ale,,, and from a non beer drinking person,,, try it!! Service was good,, bathroom clean. Would go again,, just hope they have ribs next time

When I lived in the Melbourne/Palm Bay area a few years ago, The Broken Barrel was one of my favorite places to eat and drink. It had been a couple years since I last visited so I was eager to stop by on a recent trip to the area. The bar specializes in craft beer and has 41 taps and over 100 bottles to choose from. The food menu is primarily barbecue, sandwiches, wings and other types of bar food. One of my favorites is the Guinness Steak and Cheese. The sandwich is on a toasty bun and filled with tender beef, melty Swiss cheese, and grilled onions and peppers.

Why is EVERYTHING around here so outrageously expensive? I went in after a few years away from town and will admit it was cleaner than I remember. Ordered a 12 ounce bottle of Shiner Bock... $5.00 plus tax! I could've walked across the street, gone to Publix, and got a six pack for $9 and tax, or gone downtown and got a 16 ounce draft for $4.50. I looked at the food menu and got sticker shock, everything was way more expensive than Orlando or even Tampa. If the management will rejoin the real world, realize we're in hick town Palm Bay and start pricing things reasonably, I might go back.
