Atmosphere was alright. The lamb burger was pretty good. My wife ordered the beet salad, which had a dressing that you could only describe as concentrated seawater. Pretzel appetizer came late (after main course) with a lame excuse. Waitress replaced only the leafy part of her dish. 'Generously' added three additional orange slices. Waited about 45 minutes for food in... More

I went to Barley today mid-afternoon for Christmas dinner. I was by myself and expecting to be an imposition, since this is a popular spot that locals and tourists alike would wait in line to visit. Instead, I found an upbeat and enthusiastic server (Rebecca) and manager (Kate) who made my meal enjoyable and my visit feel like being welcomed... More

The storm hit a lot of us in St. Augustine and I am glad to see Barley going strong. After a limited menu while renovations were completed they are back and better than ever. Renovated but still that great comfortable place it has always been. Can't wait to go back!!

Very nice quaint pub and Resturant. Eleven taps good bottle list. Menu looks excellent with a mix of Irish American food. Opened Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

We were on a date weekend in St Augustine, searching for a great place for a casual dinner. We strolled past the Barley Republic house and immediately got a craving for some Shepherd's Pie and Bangers and Mash. We were not disappointed. We started with some happy hour Sangria which was just the right amount of tart and sweet. The... More

This is not user-friendly website. This is the third time that I have tried to write the same review and it keeps Erasing itself. For what it's worth, stop by this wonderful pub the next time you're in Saint Augustine. The chef has a wonderful handle on the food, flavors, and how to pair the flavors. Our service started out...

They have gotten rid of almost all of the Irish food on the new menu. New Fish N Chips are now frozen not fresh. We live here and it was always are favorite restaurant to go to. No longer, it is really bad. No one should go there. Also, they are now charging $18 for the fish at lunch time.... More

This used to be our go to place but something has changed. They no longer offer shrimp, regular oysters and wings. I got the tenders and their once awesome blue cheese is now horrible. Friend chicken sandwich was inedible and what is up with the chips inside the fish and chips. Gave 2 stars opposed to 1 only because the... More

We have been to this restaurant several times in the past few years and even recommended it to friends and family as a great place to eat. It had that old Irish charm feeling with the fireplace in the center of the room and a great menu. We went there in October and the place was being renovated and we... More

We are local and this was one of our favorite downtown eateries. First time back since hurricane Matthew and we were really disappointed. Prices went up and food was poorly prepared and salty. Portions were small and we left hungry, even with appetizers. Fewer menu options and many favorites no longer available. Don't waste your money.

Thank Kitty M
