As the first original concept by the Vivili Hospitality Group, The Barley Hound is an American gastropub at the forefront of putting Prescott on the map as its own eclectic culinary destination that’s earned it national recognition.
The restaurant is just south of the historic Courthouse Square in a Victorian-style home dating to early the 1900s. Its expansive and dog-friendly patio is undeniably the best place in Prescott for al fresco dining coupled with an even larger, covered backyard patio and a small but intimate dining room inside.
While the quaint exterior may be unassuming, the creativity found on the menu is anything but.
Leveraging the combined experience and dynamic vision of Chef Tony Burris, general manager Sarah Burke-Gomez and proprietor Skyler Reeves, The Barley Hound pairs drinks and dishes for both the adventurous eater and those who prefer familiarity. The menu is complete with high-quality ingredients and thoughtful dishes made with fresh and local ingredients.
The drink menu includes inventive cocktails made with house-infused spirits, a curated wine list and all Arizona brewed beers.
A unique take on the Old Fashioned includes the Phat Fashion with duck fat infused bourbon made completely in-house for a smoky and surprising twist on this classic cocktail standard.
While The Barley Hound is a favorite among locals and travelers, made famous for its ‘Merica Burger and Truffle Duck Fat Fries, such chef-driven creations as the brisket and pork belly meatballs served with chili-infused orange marmalade and scallops prepared with fresh fennel, tomato jam and grapefruit round out the food menu.
Reservations are recommended, and expanded hours for spring and summer are coming soon. For more information or to make a reservation, visit www.thebarleyhound.com.
