It has a great WOW factor for a beer bar. Two leveled bar with a good bar atomphere. Not overly loud and large selection of draft and bottles. They even have a few one off beer every once in a while. While I was there they were the only place in the carolinas to get Gubna at that time. Atleast the first one. Food was fantastic for a limited menu but they do it well. Even I only ate one piece of pizza. They are huge and the toppings are literaly piled up high. We had stuffed mushrooms and they were fantastic as well. Service was great and the bartenders knew what they were talking about. I could tell this was a place were the local BAs hang out which shows alot. Nice Place!

A 2-story venue with lots of taps upstairs and even more downstairs. Also carries a large selection of bottles. Rare beers routinely come thru here, as do various special events. I’ve enjoyed beers here with both Sam C. (Dogfish Head) and Greg Koch (Stone), not to mention a good variety of friends and strangers. Friendly atmosphere. Probably THE best craft beer bar in SC.

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.

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.

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!
