The Barrel House
22 North First Street
Yakima, Washington 98907
Voice: 509-453-3769

The Barrel House Restaurant is located in the heart of Yakima's Historical District. The Barrel House was originally built in 1906 as a classic saloon and hotel.

Over the years the name and clientele of the establishment have changed, most recently known as the “notorious” Blue Banjo. In the fall of 2001 the Blue Banjo was closed for good. In April of 2002 the Barrel House was born as Yakima’s premier wine bar and restaurant. However, there are still bits and pieces of history left within the building. Some of the historical treasure include the original tin pressed ceiling, the large safe used by the cowboys of the time to keep their guns and money in while they had a visit from the ladies upstairs, and we believe the largest urinal in the State of Washington. The Barrel House has become the place to enjoy delicious cuisine, a vast selection of Yakima Valley/Washington wines, a variety of local microbrews in a causal atmosphere where service is a priority.

The current owner Tim Schroeder, here since 2005, has been cooking for the general public for more then 30 years and is proud to say the restaurant is family owned. Tim also told me that he has the best Clam Chowder in the entire state.

The nice thing about the Barrel House Restaurant’s menu is you can choose from a smaller portion and large portion of each of the dishes. So you don’t have to get more then you can eat to have a great meal. Each of the dishes comes with Soup or Salad, vegetable, and a starch. That gives you a complete meal; unlike most of the restaurants that you visit which just give you a main entrée.

Some of the house specialties include:

Portobello Bleu Filet Mignon
Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Spears and Gorgonzola Cheese atop a Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon Resting in Demi Glace.
Pork Shank & Creole Risotto
A Braised then Grilled Crisp Shank Melding with Rissotto treated with Andoulli Sausage, mixed peppers, onion, and garlic.
Pork Tenderloin & Apple Chipotle Chutney
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Smothered in a Sweet & Spicy Apple Chutney.

They offer a Happy Hour on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 4:00 to 6:00. Happy Hour special include:

$3.00 Microbrews
$2.00 Mixed Drinks and Glass Pours Wine
½ Price on Appetizers
35% on Bottles of Wine.

The Barrel House is proud to offer a huge selection of local wines.

You can also find Tim at The Case of the Blues and all that Jazz each year. They also help out and donate to the local charities and help raise funds at the annual Chili Feed at the Armory.

Don’t forget the large 3 rooms they have to cater to your company parties or meetings. If you need a nice place to hold your reception or other parties they can accommodate up to 40 people. These rooms are a huge hit for Christmas Parties.

Don’t forget about First Friday’s and most Wednesdays, they offer live music and great food along with good people to have a great time with. Make plans to visit this amazing restaurant on your next trip to Yakima. If you live here in the Yakima Area make sure you visit the Barrel Restaurant and have a great meal, and support our local companies.
