Barley Pop changed ownership a while ago and it is for the better...the food is excellent, with the Friday fish fry being one of the best around. The potato pancakes are well worth the $1.00 up charge for ordering them. Also, a lot of different things on the menu...not your typical pub fare...

The food here is better than we expected. We thought we were in for typical bar food but not what we got. Food was very good, they have talent in the kitchen. We will return.

The remodeled back room is perfect for sporting events of all kinds. Numerous large screen TV's and a large menu and drink selection. Fair prices. Parking at times can be a challenge but it is worth the short walk. Outdoor seating during the summer months.

Probably will never go here. Sent my son in for a daily special menu sheet. He came back with a full price lunch menu and was told they don't have specials. He said they are rude and not helpful and treated him as a nothing.

The food was actually better than the service. Not sure why -- there seemed to be plenty of staff. This is probably a fun place to drink. The bar was crowded.

My wife and I have been semi-regulars at the Barley Pop for 5-6 years. We loved the ambiance and the friendly casual feel of the place. However, it's been slowly degrading to the point we will never go again. Last night it took 10 minutes to get a couple of beers and 45 minutes to get our meal order with... More

The restaurant is rather far from where we live but we knew that the entertainer that was appearing there that night is exceptional so we made the trip. The place is rustic and cute with a great arrangement of tvs for watching sports. It was a fish fry night so I was surprised that we were immediately seated at 6pm... More

The boss was buying dinner and this was his choice. Who would say NO?! They have an extensive menu with burgers, sandwiches, wings, and Mexican choices. A decent amount of beers on tap that seem to rotate. The service was a bit slow for my liking if you don't want a lot of time between your beers. It wasn't really... More

Went to barley pop for dinner despite the poor reviews. Now I know why. Our waitress was not friendly at all. Also forgot things that we wanted. It wasn't busy at all so there was no excuse for the poor service. Will not be going back.

Knowing how busy everyplace would be for a fish fry on Good Friday, we tried the Barley Pop Pub in Germantown at 4pm in the afternoon. We had heard that this place was under new ownership, so we thought we would check them out. We also saw online that they offered domestic pints of beer on Fridays for $2. The... More
