Barley John's Brew Pub

Barley John's can hardly be called undiscovered anymore, even in far-flung Mounds View. After all, the pub picked up a pair of City Pages' "Best of" honors in 2010¬ for brewpub and best suburban bar. While Barley John's signature brews are a major attraction, they don't let the food side of the equation down. You'll find plenty of typical bar fare on the menu, from burgers to beer-battered fish to a bevy of pizzas (including a hot chipotle variety), but there are also items like a portobello mushroom melt, pasta specials, and hearty fare like beef tenderloin and a smoked pork chop.
