I would like to apologize for your experience at The Quarter Barrel. This is obviously not the impression I would like anybody to leave with. We did go through a rough spell over the summer with some of our employees and had to make a...More

This place will appeal to the younger generation. Lots of arcade games, high top tables and simple food.

Took my dad for father's day. Brought back great memories of he and I playing pinball together when I was a child. Glad that there are places like this. The games take quarters. Lots of beer choices, some interesting names. We thought it kind of...More

This is an arcade, brewery, and restaurant with eclectic food and a lively atmosphere! Fun for the kiddos, but also perfect for the grown-ups to have a good brew and a yummy bite while they play!

The Quarter Barrel is like a "your mom" joke that serves killer pizza and hand crafted beers and is loaded with classic arcade and pinball machines. But then, so's your face. The Quarter Barrel Arcade & Brewery is, well, a brewery. Half of the 24 draught beers we have on tap were brewed right here in house. We firmly believe that there's a beer for everyone, and we'll keep throwing fun and obscure beer styles at the wall to see what sticks. Check out our 15th century Dutch-style Kuitbier. You'll probably dig it. Oh, but we're not *just* a brewery. We're also a pizzeria. A damned good pizzeria. We prep nearly everything from scratch. We source a lot of our ingredients from local farmers. We seek out the best ingredients that we can and somehow manage to keep our prices competitive. Are we "farm to table"? Well, yeah. But we're not going to use throw-away labels as an excuse to overcharge you. And we're family-friendly. As long as our kitchen is open, we allow minors.
