Even tho this place was packed, we sat outside since it was such a lovely day, lots of bikes/bikers around...we pulled to picnic tables together so we could all talk, waitress was quick to get our drink & food order....I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich & was not pleased with it, chicken was very chewy, so I know it was...

Took the tour of Jack Daniels and after it walked down to the town square. Saw few places to eat and choose this one. The grilled cheese caught my eye. Was neat place people write all over the walls and tables messages. Place was covered in funny sayings. Had the crack cheese sandwich with pork on it. Was good. Also... More

We stopped for lunch after the Jack Daniel's tour. It was busy but they served us quickly. It definitely has a local feel and the staff was very friendly. We got the pulled pork platter which was delicious.

The food was good and the people were very nice and friendly. The menu is not big at all so you only gets a handful of selections but we were hungry.

Ate here twice while in town for three days. Try the Grilled Cheese on Crack. Great sandwich. Good sides, great bbq sauce. You can purchase bottled sauce to take home. Fair prices, no waiting. Small joint with no frills.

Lunch here after a great tour of Jack Daniels was disappointing. My hot dog was barely lukewarm and flavorless even with piles of sauce. Bread dry. Corn cobs also not very fresh or hot. My partner found his sandwich acceptable. We didn't have time to complain and wait further for fresh or other food. Decor interesting and quirky. Staff friendly... More

So sorry your meal was not great and you didn't have time to let us make things right. Our goal is to serve the best whether it's our Pit-Smoked BBQ or other menu items. If given the chance I'm sure we could have corrected your meal or made other compensations. Come on back and give us another chance. More

Went to the Barrelhouse with two friends for lunch. We were seated but no waitress ever took our drink order. Three other people came in and were served but we never had a waitress come to our table. We were a multi racial group and wondered if that was the reason? As we were leaving a manager asked if anyone... More

This sounds like you were with the other person who wrote of the same incident and we do apologize. We want everyone to have a great meal and fun experience at Barrel House. It breaks my heart that you would think it was because your party was multi-racial....you really don't know us....everyone is family here. We were a bit overwhelmed... More

My two friends and I came here for lunch, expecting to have great BBQ from the #1-ranked restaurant in Lynchburg. However, after we were seated and given menus, we were never even spoken to or waited on. Not one server looked at us or came near, and we were seated near other patrons. We watched three other parties who were... More

I'm very sorry your party fell through the cracks. We were very busy Saturday and as luck would have it, we were understaffed due to sickness. Believe me, our intention is to serve all of our guests in a timely manner and serve great BBQ. I hope you see by other reviews, your experience is not our norm and we... More

Stopped into Lynchburg to visit the distillery and grabbed a bite to eat at the Barrelhouse. Place was hoppin' but arrived just in time before the crowds. Waited about 15 minutes to seat our party of 7. Delicious lunch, excellent service. And if you're there on your B-day... You are in for a treat!!! I enjoyed the pulled pork BBQ... More
