On the lighter side, Barrelhouse's Chopped Ranch salad is just sad. Its components of burnt chorizo patties, handfuls of lettuce and tortilla strips, and mushy avocado slices look (and taste) like they'd be more at home in the "La Viva" menu section of Denny's, should it ever decide to have one.

Barrelhouse's desserts, like many of its main dishes, are often best when they are French-inspired — like the refreshing Lemon-Lime Napoleon, a trio of powdered sugar-dusted puff pastry layered with wild berry preserve, topped with a delicate citrus-infused Chantilly cream, and surrounded by a swirl of raspberry sauce.

The lobster baked chile relleno is enough to cause a serious case of dish envy.

Will you be staying for coffee? The question is never asked. Not that you'd expect it. Somewhere between the unceremoniously plopped-down pre-dinner/post-appetizer cheddar biscuits, the screeching saxophones, and the indifferent "Will there be anything else?" from your server, you've already imagined that your artfully inspired meal would have tasted better in a more appealing gallery.

It is too ad the beers are so pedestrian at this place and don't live up to the food or other cocktails. Major flaw in their execution.
