There is extra parking in the rear of the restaurant, and you can enter the building through the back patio. Additionally, there are 15-20 spots at the hotel that are allocated to our complex, on the other side of the grassy median.
Cash is still king and paying with cash will decrease your bill by 4%. Some restaurants choose to hide this cost in their food and drinks which then increases the sales tax. Here, you have the option to pay with cash and save money.
Splitting checks or separate checks for groups of 6 or more is discouraged. The time it takes to split the checks and cash everyone out, can take away from the level of service we strive to provide all our guests. We incentivize groups of 6+ people that are not private parties, to remain on one check, and receive the 4% cash discount even if paying with a card.
Parties of 6 or more will have an automatic gratuity of 20% added to their bill.
We here at Barr’s Public House believe in providing an inviting, genuine, (yet unassuming) escape where people can meet in the presence of friends for quality drinks, an unexpected menu & a warm atmosphere.
We take great pride in providing exemplary service which comes with character, integrity and without compromise.
We pledge to you, our patrons, the highest quality in all things: food, beverage, service & ambiance, while constantly evolving to meet the needs of our stated mission.
Welcome to- “Our House, Your Pub.”
Ken Gabel, Owner
Ken Gabel is a local entrepreneur born and raised in Toledo. He and his family own and operate VM Systems, an HVAC contractor specializing in sheet metal, which has been a benefit in facilitating many projects and improvements at Barr’s Public House. Ken has always wanted to own a bar & is happy that he has had the opportunity to buy and create such a unique pub and grill as Barr’s Public House. He also feels very lucky to have such a large and supportive group of family and friends who frequent the pub. He and his family are fun-loving people and make all the guests and employees at BPH feel very comfortable and accepted as part of the Gabel Clan! One of his favorite things about owning a bar is socializing with the regular guests and meeting new people. One more interesting fact about Ken is: his drink of choice is Bud Select- even though the bar focuses on craft beer- it’s always safe to assume that there’s plenty in stock!
Ken thanks you for your patronage & looks forward to meeting you soon. Cheers!
Stephanie Soldner, Managing Partner
Stephanie began working in the hospitality/service industry when she was 19 yrs. old; she has progressed from server, to bartender, to management. Now, with over ten years of industry experience, she is able to use that knowledge & expand on it for her guests and her staff. She loves learning new facts about wine & craft beer, and is always enthusiastic when she has something new to offer. One of her favorite things to do is research the top trends in Chicago, New York & L.A. and then use those ideas to create something that is totally new to the Midwest. The pub features a dynamic cocktail menu, wine list & craft beer selection, which she takes great pride in making sure that there is a balance between the trendy and the classic offerings. Stephanie also loves the challenge of evolving while training and coordinating with her staff so that her guests can have a consistent and top-notch experience. A few things that she feels sets herself and the pub apart from the rest is their positivity and friendliness, comfortable ambiance and quality pub fare.
“It just feels good to work here, we have a great staff & clientele, and we are constantly striving to improve.”
