The bar, drinks and food were all great. The crowd was terrible. Maybe it was the time of year. Idk. A lot of yelling, jock types screaming and bumping into us constantly. Felt like a fight was ...going to erupt any minute. Wish the staff would’ve rid the place of the annoying types instead of continually serving them. I noticed it driving people out.
It ruined the ambiance.

Went tonight with some new great friends. Food and drink was amazing. The band was good, too. We tried lobster mac and cheese, shanks, jalapeno poppers and asparagus. Everything was delicious. I can't... wait to go back. See More

I really like this place! Always great beers on tap to choose from and of course tons of bourbons. Such a cute place that frequently has live music and events. Just what Sonora needed!

I'm thinking that it's a good thing that I don't live in Sonora because I would be waiting at the door for opening time like the people on the Target commercial... "Open. Open. Open."
Cam and Julia outstanding bartenders. Cam set up a perfect tasting flight and both were very generous with their time and expertise.
Definitely will look forward to coming back anytime that we find ourselves in the area.

Friendly staff. Good food and small menu...perfect for a pub. Nice event with raffle for prizes. Great spot for a date night, albeit small with lots of bar seating. Great ambience and soon will be to another pub with craft beers! Close to downtown Sonora fine dining. 😁🦊 See More

We loved this place! Great bourbon choices, a few great surprises and Cam was exceptional. My husband had a great time talking with someone that is as knowledgeable about bourbons as him.

Leilani & The Distractions have formed into a reputable band! Good to see them at the Bourbon Barrel.

Excellent! Friendly bartenders who made the best cocktails. The selection of bourbons was the best of any bar I have been to and the brisket sandwich was great.

I LOVE this place! I can't believe I haven't found them on FB yet. I discovered them when I was up there for a film festival and was walking around looking for a place to quench my thirst. Well they d...elivered that and more. I keep going back! Amazing selection of whiskeys, and the presentation of them is incredible. Good food to nom with your whiskey, live music that gets you movin'. I adore the atmosphere, the people, the "theme" for lack of a better word..... everything. Please come discover this place, too. You'll be thankful. See More

Great variety of bourbon, whiskey and beer on tap and generally a fun band to listen to. Bartender came out from behind the bar to take our order instead of us trying to stack behind people seated an...d waiting to be noticed. Super fun place! See More

Love it! Great staff, great food, great atmosphere! Particularly love the giant buffalo balls, but if you want a #stomachboner get the wedge salad!! The blue cheese dressing is the best you will ever have!!

John is an outstanding bartender! Peach sweet tea was excellent with Birddog Whiskey.

With our plan to have so many people drinking on the roof balcony we thought it made sense to install railings, How do they look?

Lots more to do, but we are making strides....
