I dined here on a Tuesday evening, just before Thanksgiving, so it was probably less crowded that night than normally. I had seen a group of men with fiddles and other musical instruments sitting in the "back room" (actually, it's to the side) of the pub part of the restaurant, and asked to be seated near them, to enjoy the...

I had a business dinner at The Barley House recently. It was quiet when we arrived around 6 but it was rocking by 7. The waitress was lovely: she was attentive without being pushy. And she brought out our drinks quickly. I ordered a daily special entree salad. It was OK but nothing I would order again. My colleagues said... More

We stopped in last night on our way down to Boston. I'd never been to Concord before, but it turned out to be in a very cute main street, with the restaurant directly across from capital building gold dome. From start to finish, the staff were super nice. It was a nice cozy pub atmosphere. The food was excellent. We... More

My coworker and I stopped on our way to Boston. There was one minor goof from the kitchen related to my friend's allergies but the food was good.

Barley house is the best eatery on Main St Concord, NH. Great live music and awesome food and beer selection. I visited with my family including my two young teens around 7-8 PM. Love the music, great service ! I recommend the chesse hamburger and pulled pork sandwich.Generous portions.

We stopped here on the way home from Boston to NEK, VT, for lunch. Just 2 minutes off the highway on I-93, we were seated immediately in a generous booth, ordered the quesadilla and the shaved brisket sandwich. Food arrived quickly, hot, and absolutely delicious. The cole slaw was great. The service was friendly and our server had a genuinely... More

Took a chance on this location after I did a quick tour of the capitol building. Had lunch and a cold beer. Try any of their homemade soups ...they're really quite good!! Friendly people and great service. Seems to be a local hangout. Definitely recommend.

Very nice, cozy restaurant in downtown Concord. Only .1 of a mile from the Holiday Inn-Downtown, if you are staying there...a 10 minute walk. Greeted and seated within a half hour on a Friday night, bar was packed. Looked like an "older" crowd? Looks small but there is plenty of room in the dining area. Food was delicious and more...

The setting was perfectly located on the old streets of historic Concord, NH. The building was very old but well kept. The bar was warm and inviting. Ambience was perfect. Staff was friendly and quick. The food was perfect. I had the spicy corn chowder which was served with fresh jalepenos, shaved on top. WOW! I also had a NY... More
