The Barrel has hiked its prices and is now higher priced than it is worth. My friend and I each had a meal sized salad. Mine was Greek and was certainly not enough for a meal but priced at $10.99. I had two tiny pieces...More

I have always tipped 15% when the service was right on the money. This is the first time I ever tipped 20%. I had too. On top of the great food, Roselle made it all come together and then some.
