I live less than two miles from this place. I want to love it, but I just can't get myself there. First, as other reviewers have noted the price of a burger (although quite good) is friggin' over the top. I took my mom and son the other day; three burgers, one draft and two sodas. With tip, $70. WHAT?! Anyway, they do rotate the taps. you'll never be blown away by the selection, but I usually find something I haven't tried before. Note that not a single person in the place, including the owner knows anything about beer. So don't ask.
If you want a GREAT, much cheaper burger then go to the Blazer Pub in Purdys. It's a few miles from this joint. Beer selection there is limited (Macros and Captain Lawrence), but the burger and steak fries (and Tomato Bacon soup) will make up for that. Have a Freshchester and you'll be just fine.

Quality and selection are good but the food prices are OUTRAGEOUS even for Somers, NY. It's burgers, not prime steaks. I also don't believe their glassware is as advertised. By that I mean they list 16 oz. pours but the glasses look like 14 oz.

The wife was working in Somers, NY, and we drove all the way up from Philadelphia. Hungry! Thirsty! What's beery and good up there? BA didn't yield any results, but we somehow found this joint.

The Burger Barn is a large restaurant right on Route 100. There is a bar as you enter to the right and then the large dining room, which reminds me of a hunting lodge with its column-free structure and lots of space. There are some nice views over an artificial lake behind the building, and this is where we sat to chow down on a burger and a beer.

The 12 taps here are carefully selected, and the menu includes not only the name, price and ABV but the BeerAdvocate rating. Pretty cool!

Harpoon Stout, Goose Ogden, Founders Centennial, Singlecut, Thirsty Old Leghumper, Central Waters Lac du Bay, Bayou Teche, Port City Essential, Captain Lawrence, Harpoon White... I went for a Goose Island Ogden, nicely poured and served in a brewery tulip. Neat.

The burgers are delicious and big (1/d pound) but super expensive. Like, $14.50-a-piece expensive. Even in Westchester, Metro New York, the prices here struck me as over the top. My veggie burger was house-made and delicious but messy.

Service is good and the ambience is alright. I like this place and this place likes beer, so it is a winner despite the prices.
