Barley’s Greenville is very similar to the Asheville bar. But hey, when you got a good thing going, no need for unnecessary changes. Nice selection of local and nationally distributed micros. This one’s got 43 better beer taps. Decent menu including some pretty good pizza, and some other comfort food/pub grub type selections. I had better service on my first visit. On the second, I found the bartender very preoccupied with menial tasks, while he past my empty pint glass several times. Oh the humanity! Also, a lot of staff were standing around doing nothing. The second floor bar has billiard room and is a bit quieter. Overall, I would return here next time since the product is good. I dug the Cottonwood Endo IPA…nice. Often, good beer and the southern US don’t mix but it’s getting better and Barley’s is an exception to the rule. Check it out. (859 characters)

Some of the best beer selection downtown. When I stopped in, they had Creature Comforts on draft (and can) and Orpheus cans. That was enough for me. Plenty of SC and NC favorites. The bartenders knew what they were talking about as well. I did not go upstairs on this visit. But, on past visits, the upstairs selection is great. My only complaint is it's pretty dark inside and you get an "old" feeling. But, you go to drink (and eat) so why worry so much about decor, right? I'll definitely continue to go back. (512 characters)

Great beer selection, friendly staff, decent but limited food selection, big wide open spaces and fair prices. The only drawback is it's downtown location and parking limitations. Move this to right off I-85 and add ample parking and it becomes world class. (260 characters)

I popped into Barley's on a business trip to Greenville, SC which doubled as an intelligence-gathering trip prior to relocation to the city. To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be a major understatement. From the beer selection, to the quality of the food, to the mind-blowing friendliness of the staff and other patrons, Barley's compares favourably to the Philly hangouts I'm going to miss after moving down south. Two thumbs up in Z-formation! (455 characters)
