I have been coming here off and on for 5 years. The staff is largely unchanged and I love them all. You know they treat their staff well when they stick around. Totally accepting and non judgemental space. The food is amazing and presented like you are in a five star resort. The crowd on the weekdays is like cheers with a lot of regu ... read more

I'm a lesbian from out of town. Googled gay bars near me that had food, just wanting to be in the community. I got here and realized it is a sausage bar, BUT came in anyway and am happy with my decision. The food is on point. A nice stop before my trip back to North Carolina. I would recommend this place.

Kinda divey, but with great food!Fiance and I were in Richmond at the Coliseum and looking for some good food.  Most places around the convention center are either 1.  not serving at off hours, such as 3:30 in the afternoon, or 2. have bad reviews.  Striking out at the first place we visited, I checked the Yelp mobile app, I saw this ... read more

I caught an early dinner at Barcode on St. Patty's Day right after a workout, so I could go scurry away home and stay indoors from 5pm to 3am to avoid Shamrock the Block, which makes my part of town insufferably congested with douchebaggery.
