I picked my girlfriend up from work on a Thrusday night for a quick dinner break.  I had drove by Barley’s a few night’s earlier and wanted to check it out.  I figured this was as good as time as any.

Barley’s is a pretty unique bar/restaurant.  When you walk in, you actually walk into a huge pool room.  It’s more of a pool hall feel than a bar.  Take a right and you hit the bar.  Go a little bit farther and you hit the dining room.  Nice, spacious area surrounded by TV’s and cut off from the pool room and the bar to make a nice cozy setting.

We took a booth near the back and got menus.  I had eaten burgers for the last three meals so I wanted something else.  That something else was the Hot Cheesey Italian.  Italian meats piled high on buttered, toasted bread.  Between that was both cheddar and provolone cheese.  This sandwich was surprsingly good.  Little things like toasting the bread just made the sandwich so much better.  The fries that came with it were actually fresh cut and had a hint of a cajun seasoning on them.

My girlfriend got the crunch chicken wrap.  Instead of grilling chicken and putting it in a wrap, they deep fry some chicken tenders, cut them up, and put them in the traditional chicken wrap which also included mayo, lettuce and tomato.  Her complaint with the sandwich was the tomatos.  The chicken was hot and crunchy while the tomatos where cold.  She said the contrast of hot and cold made the sandwich a little difficult to eat, but she made it most of the way through.  Had the tomatos been at least room temperature, there wouldn’t have been any complaints.  Like me, she noticed the fresh cut fries and appreciated the cook taking an extra five seconds.

The damage was $20 before tip.  The food was really good for bar food.  The cook/chef took the extra time to develop a menu that goes beyond grease and wings and developed a diverse collection of favorites.  We accidently stumbled upon Barley’s, but it’s location combined with the great bar sets it up for a return trip

We were passing through Lansing on our way to Whitehall. We were looking for something different from fast foods made several strange turns and ended up in the back of Meijers.
Then we saw Barley’s American Grill and decided to try it. I am a diabetic so I was cautious about the carb’s and sugars. I had the shrimp basket and my husband had the 1/2 lb burger.The fries were well done and great. I also enjoyed the deep fried mushrooms as an appetizer- yummy.
But once dinner came I tried the cole slaw and flipped out. We ended getting a large container to take home it was so good. It’s rare that we find a sweet homemade cole slaw with there own recipe that is delicious. I would recommend Barley’s for a different experience let alone the crowd when it’s game day for the Spartans. Even though I am a U of M fan. GREAT Job!

Awesome steam showers, we had a unit hooked up about five years ago and
it could maybe do with replacing, never get a mundane old common form of shower again
