We constantly use feedback to provide a fun experience while ensuring the utmost quality in our restaurant and bar.
Great Staff and decent pricing along with a mellow atmosphere and lots of room to move around most of the time makes this place a great regular spot. Most would mistake it as a college bar for it’s placement adjacent to U.T. campus and they do get a fair amount of students but please take it from me this place is frequented by all age groups. The food, as well, is made mostly from scratch and prepared/presented in a quality, great tasting way that absolutely fits in with the atmosphere of this great, great [restaurant and] bar.
In the midst of tremendous change on the strip, this beer joint manages to stay the same. And that’s just the way I like it!! Half Barrel is a [Knoxville] UT strip institution that has a great beer selection, good food, friendly wait staff, and fantastic specials. If you wanna hang with buds or catch a game this is definitely the place you wanna hang on the strip.
