Sure, you can get an omelet and French toast off of Birch & Barleys new brunch menu, but you can also order house-brined corned beef hash, fried chicken and waffles, and buffalo chicken flatbread.

Their brat burger may be one of the best burgers you'll ever eat. And it comes with their homemade mustard for the fries.
