AOL Travel Editor's Review

The Pickle Barrel is another establishment featuring fabulous pub grub. This joint, however, has a more refined quality to its cuisine. Patio seating on the roof of this corner-shaped building makes for a great place to grab a drink and get some alone time with your special someone. The old-English vibe comes out clearly when you enter the wooden door and spot the stone corner tables, the specialty beers (they have over 60) and the dimly lit, musty atmosphere. Acoustic music can often be heard reverberating off the walls several nights of the week. For quaint local flavor, good thick brew and some decent munchies, make a stop here.

  Perhaps this reviewer was on medication, as many Pickle patrons often are, but the description presented was less than accurate. This is one of the last dive bars left. It certainly does have a lovely handmade stone and wood interior, and the food and drinks are great, but using the term " refined quality" is a bit off the mark. The servers, kitchen and barkeepers are some of the funniest, weirdest, most honest folk that you can find. However, they also take no crap. It is a place where you treat them sweetly and you have a great time, but if you are a friggin' jerk, they will tell you that you are a friggin' jerk and kick your butt out. Pickle Barrel treats everyone the same. From creepy District attorneys to sweet tranny drug dealers to trustfund hipster brats. If you be good to pickle, it will be good to you....   Read More
