The Barley Mill at Eau Claire

by Jill Roberts · 0 comments

Sitting on the patio of the Barley Mill with a friend or two is a great way to pass the time on a sunny afternoon.

The location offers lots of opportunity for people watching, with wedding guests clomping and strutting about the nearby Sheraton, shoppers and patrons of the several restaurants and bars milling about, and people taking in Prince’s Island Park.

The pub offers a relaxed, casual dining experience. The beer is tasty and the food is pretty good too. Sipping a pint of Keith’s and noshing on some tasty—pizz—I mean flatbread (why isn’t a pizza called “pizza” anyway?), my Barley Mill experience was marred only slightly by our server’s disclosure that the olives on my vegetarian flatbread (PIZZA!) couldn’t be removed since the menu item is premade off-site. Hmmm.

The thing is, the pizza (I just can’t pretend anymore) ended up tasting so good that its origins were of no consequence. Here’s to savouring the moment, even if it was previously frozen.
