When we got to Indianapolis we all wanted to grab a good beer and relax. We found this place near our hotel in Greenwood so we stopped. They have a super selection of beers there and they are cold. The atmosphere is friendly and simple. The people are great and we also ate some dinner here. I had the pot... More

Wonderful staff, great beer and food. Can't ask for better Go during Apple Buzz season Idaho nachos are the best and barrel burger with waffle fries is a treat

First visited a couple weeks after it opened more than 20 years ago. Walked from home. Always good beer. Food generally very good. In recent years has gotten a little pricey, and doesn't seem the owner, Quam, spends as much time there. Not as neighborhoodly anymore although quality of beer and food remains high. Was one of first craft brewers... More

We had a table outside when it was perfect weather. Enjoyed my salmon which was cooked perfectly, my beer was great as always, and the outdoor atmosphere. Looks like they have updated some items on the menu.

We loved the food here, but the kitchen staff has really gone downhill. Seems like they are always having problems with oven and food takes 45 minutes. Hope the make an investment as it would be a shame to see this place go downhill

Good beer and great food. Staff was very helpful. I will be back in the future. I did ask the hostess the difference between 2 of their beers. She said "one is an IPA, the other is an Indian pale ale." I found that amusing.

For starters, the beer, especially the Amber, was good and the food was good. But the atmosphere left a lot to be desired. Maybe I'm spoiled by craft brewery's in Texas which are big on atmosphere but it was just a regular sports bar in a strip center. Not sure I would recommend taking the time to find it.

Oaken Barrel is a great venue for food and beer. The local brews are excellent and the menu has a wide variety of options. Great for dinner and it also has a room to host moderate size events.

The restaurant smells a little musty when you first come in. Service was good. Tried the pot roast. Decent flavor, fall apart tender but very tuff to chew up. Much better at home in pressure cooker or At O Riles pub. The dinner salad greens were not fresh at all. The spicy beef tips were awesome. Hate places that serve... More
