New Again! Great Food! Relaxed – The new owner's - I think 2 years now - have turned out yet another menu. It started this last Sunday and we thoroughly enjoyed some of the new choices and were comforted to see some of the old. The atmosphere is always inviting and relaxed. We enjoyed the BPP Redeye - a burger with ham, cheese, bacon, a fried egg and even buffalo sauce - absolutely delicious. My daughter ordered a salad only to find out it could also be served as a wrap. Well anyways - its was good local food and we have been back for the $5.99 express lunch.
Excellent food/experience – Went to the Barley Pop after a long time away and was so very pleased with the experience. The environment is cleaner, brighter (more windows), new TVs, and better food. I took my daughter in for lunch after shopping, and we enjoyed the home made Bruschetta and then a Jack Daniels Steak sandwhich - YUM, and a Tijuana Cheese steak sandwhich. The food came reasonably quick, was hot and delicious. I also noticed they are now doing small venues of live music - we'll be back for sure and might even bring my husband. Thanks for returning it to what I remember - but better
Not a good experience – The first thing I noticed when I walked in was that there was a smell of body odor in the air. Not sure why.
Anyway, I ordered a Belgian White beer on tap. The thing turned out to be 5.75, was warm, not even a pint and when it was brought to the table the glass wasn't full, at least an inch of space to the rim.
My fiance ordered the 8.95 fish and when I saw the portion she got I actually laughed. It was about the size of a pack of cigarettes.
I had the 8.95 "supreme" nachos. It was mostly chips with dried out meat.
The server was cheerful and on top of things though but after paying 40 dollars for a small amount of beer, a tiny piece of fish and a mound of tortilla chips, I felt ripped-off.
What Happened to the Barley Pop – My friends and I use to love the "POP" but the new manager/owner is just not friendly and she is starting to rub off on the rest of the staff, if you want to feel invisible this is the place, you will be ignored until you get up and go to them. They took some of our favorite items off of the menu, blackened prime rib, Barley Pop Burger and Barley Pop Chicken. The service and the food are just alright really no reason to every go back, much like most of the regulars we are moving on.Germantown has lots of other choices so if I was you I would choice somewhere elese. It's also a shame that the only good reviews on this site are from their employee's.
Not Worth The Long Wait – I do not recommend this restaurant due to the poor quality of the food and service.
WOW what a turn around – A great place for family and friends. Full restaurant, smoking or non. Huge bar and alot to offer. Wide range of spirits and beer. Menu has a wide varity of unique items with very reasonable prices and specials everyday. Great packer game specials and monday night football specials. Its just a great place to come and hang out.
More fun than chain restaurants – I love The Barley Pop! The new owners have made some wonderful changes without losing the feel of the restaurant that has been there for years. The new menu gives you a ton of choices and the quality of the food has gone up as well. I recomend trying the Barley Pop again if you haven't been there for a while. I think they've made leaps and bounds in the right direction!
Best Place EVER! – I don't know what this guy is talking about! My experience has always been GREAT! The new owner takes the time to get to know us customers, and is very friendly and kind. The managers are wonderful and efficient. This is the best place I've been. Their new menu and customer service is considerably better than the past. I can't say enough good things about this place. It's my favorite! I think you should go on the weekends and check it out!!! I'll be there! So will the HOT bartenders! ( which is half the reason I frequent the place).
WORST Customer Service – READ>>>>>>>>>>>>>
My wife and I plus many friends use to come to the Barley Pop every Thursday night for the past 6 years until some of us moved away. Well everyone is now back in town and we decided to return to old habits.
1) Cheap steak night ($4.95 Thursday) is not so cheap anymore. ($6.95) for a ground sirloin instead of the real sirloin like before. But on the menu it still says sirloin.
2) We had a gift certificate that we received from a poker tournament in January for $10 off that the new owner (in a red sox shirt) would not accept. She said and I quote “the previous owner already made money off of this so I can’t accept it, but I will meet you half way and give you $5 off.” ……Not our problem that’s the cost of business and when you purchase a business and the name you must honor all pre-engagements per LAW.
3) I always get a double Crown Royal on the rock and at dinner I was clearly charged on my receipt $6.25. After dinner I went to the bar for another and was charged $8.25. So I went to this owner lady and asked why the price difference? I was told “I was lucky the first time I got a deal so I can’t do anything about it.” I have photos of my receipt and you can clearly see my dinner receipt was correct.
4) When we were leaving we said “bye” to the bar and this lady looked at us with a dirty look and did not say anything back. PLAIN RUDE.
We (the 8 of us) will not be returning to this establishment EVER and will be going somewhere that appreciates is customers. RUDENESS is a great way to ruin a business especially in these times and you can see it by the ghost town the Barley Pop has become. (At least on Thursday nights anyway). It's sad to lose long term customers to rudeness.
This is my "Cheers" – I love this place! My wife and I go there all the time (in fact, we met there several years ago, and have been going religiously ever since). We enjoy walking into a place with a casual atmosphere, and ordering great food and drinks. Occasionally something will go wrong, but the staff is always anxious to correct the problem and make our visit enjoyable. Out of all of the local restaurants in the area, this is by far our most favorite choice.
Recommended to all!
