Barley’s is amazing! I had a dinner there after my wedding and they did everything and anything to help make it successful. I live in Illinois and planned everything by email and phone. They helped me create a menu of items that worked for us, based off our price point. Also the food was AMAZING!!! Everyone talked about how terrific it was, also there was plenty. When I mentioned that I had vegans the chef created a dish specific for them, which they loved. The wait staff was wonderful as well, they even went out to buy ties just for the dinner. They also included two pony kegs of beer in the price, which were so yummy. We had a hard time picking which one we liked the best. They also got napkins and tablecloths that matched our colors and gave us the entire patio and half of the inside space for our people. When I mentioned music they went out of their way to get a speaker set-up for us. I can’t say one bad thing about the food, beer, service, or staff. TJ, Cori, Bubba, Chef Zy, and all the wait staff went above and beyond to make our day fabulous. I can’t believe we got so lucky and feel they really helped to make our day even better then we could have planned.
The only reason I don't give this Resort a 5 star rating is because it is not very "kid" friendly. Tried to get a hamburger at one of the burger restaurants, but adults only - because they serve alcohol....don't most restaurants serve alcohol? When my family came to visit with grandsons, the only place we could go for a meal was a walk-up window. And, if you try to walk through the hotel on the walkway with kids, you'll be stopped - even though this family was staying at the hotel. The pool was closed early and there was nothing for kids to do - no arcade, nothing. I like this this hotel for myself and husband, as it's close to home, does have good restaurants, and nice ambiance. Kids are allowed at the buffet, but Friday, Saturday and Sunday are unaffordable for a visiting family because of special Seafood Buffet.
