Highly recommend this place! Dined here almost 4 months ago and keep meaning to go back. Food was delicious but the highlight of the evening was sitting at the bar and watching the bartender work his magic! We gave him free reign to create "mystery" drinks and it was so worth it. Tasty and beautifully served in vintage "glasses" (see pics). Lovely outdoor seating with fire pits too.

We have been wanting to go to Barrel and Fork for a long time now. However, we just went there for our first time. We chose this place to celebrate our Anniversary. We had made reservations to sit at a table, however when we walked into the restaurant we saw friends sitting at the bar. They called us to sit with them, and Erick, the GM, and also the server that they had assigned for our reservation, were so gracious to let us sit at the bar. We had the best restaurant experience in Cornelius. It really felt like something you find in Greenwich Village; everything about it: the old house, the ambiance, the class mixed with hipster, the service, the music, the drinks, the food, etc. Yes, the place is pricey, but it is worth every penny! Or at least, that was the experience we had the night we went there. As we arrived they had complimentary champagne waiting for us, great touch! We continued with plenty of small dishes and each one of them was wonderful. Unbeknownst to us they brought us a complimentary dessert: cheesecake with homemade plums in syrup. It was delicious. The top layer of the cheesecake was like the caramelized layer in crme brle. The plums in syrup were tasty yet not too sweet. Just well made and a good combination!!! Now, lets talk about the drinks: that is the experience; innovative, well balanced flavors, delicious, and fun! The bartender was the attraction of the night: her personality is so big; she immediately reads what you like and prepares the drinks accordingly. I could go on and on talking about our experience at Barrel and Fork, but I better post the photos to speak for themselves. We feel fortunate to have a place like this in Cornelius!!!!!

I was planning on taking my husband out to celebrate his birthday and i didn't want an everyday restaurant or a big branch name place either. Came across barrel & fork and let's just say that this place didn't disappoint us at all. The food was on point, the server was amazing, I love that I was able to reserve a spot and have it ready by the time we got there, and i loved that it wasn't in just a regular old restaurant building. It was in an old 1906 house. So beautiful from the inside out. They also have chairs on the lawn where you can relax by the fire if you want before or after dinner and they also had a variety of deserts and different types of meals to choose from. We got the calamari as an appetizer, then scallops and pork chops as the main entrees. I highly recommend those dishes. It was cooked to perfection! We will gladly be coming back and bringing friends as well.

My friends took me out to dinner here and we had a blast! The restaurant was packed so we sat at the bar where Mackenzie and Ian took great care of us. The drinks were amazing and Ian made a really cool dry ice bomb for us with flower garnish and some cool purple liquid. Mackenzie told us how she sources a lot of the crystal glassware from antique shops in the area which I thought was very neat. Our food was spectacular I got the Wagyu Burger and it was delicious. I highly recommend the lobster Mac n cheese(makes great leftovers). Mackenzie also told us that she makes most of the desserts. We went with the coffee creme brulee and it was divine! Wonderful dining experience and atmosphere can't wait to go back!

Very disappointed after hearing good things about this place. I came with a lot of expectations and left with a burnt flavor in my mouth. Very flat food, My wife dish (fish) was tasteless and my potatoes were burnt and pork was overcooked. The service/ atmosphere was great but food quality to poor and no balance for a good restaurant: 2 out 5.
