Steak, Wine, & Whiskey

Locally Sourced meats × barrel aged cocktails


Located in Historic Downtown Goldsboro, Barrique is a purveyor of fine wine & dining from the esteemed Sommelier Eli Wuest and Chef Jason Holt.


Barrique is a fine-dining restaurant featuring upscale dining, cocktails and wine. We focus on a protein based menu specializing in quality Angus steaks, fine wine, and barrel aged whiskies. We are located in the booming, and rapidly expanding Downtown Goldsboro, NC.

Barrique is a venue where the local communities can come celebrate life through dining, craft cocktails and wine selections from all over the globe.  Barrique, being the French term for wine barrel, features two levels of dining and entertainment.  On the first floor we feature a wine cellar where wines can be purchased for retail and in house consumption. Enjoy our beautiful wine bar to dine or to enjoy a wine tasting. Dinner hours (5 to 10) features a boutique steakhouse dining experience along with produce and pork from local, sustainable farmers.  North Carolina seafood from Sneads Ferry rounds out the dinner menu.

The second floor features a bar/lounge where barrel aged craft cocktails and whiskeys showcase the enjoyable benefits of oak treatment.  All house cocktails have a minimum of 21 days resting in barrel and then bottled and ready for guests consumption.  Barrique offers Lounge seating for a fun and intimate evening with friends. A special Lounge menu is available each evening until 10:00.

A lovely covered back patio is available for those wishing to enjoy the outdoors while they dine and enjoy a beverage.

Barrique's ambiance and décor flows with the industrial history of the business once occupying the building. Come see our “Ghost” wall! The building was designed by the award winning renovation company, Blue Yonder Properties in coordination with David Maurer Architecture and Billy Brock Construction.

About Clay

An accomplished vocalist and pianist, Clay Whittington is an energetic, passionate entertainer who delivers an unrivaled solo performance. Reflective of that “southern hospitality,” his piano bar shows take on the vibe of a continuous conversation through music and laughter. Filled with lively sing-alongs, games, spirited toasts, and roasts, Clay’s performance style is highly interactive and fun for all ages.

Clay was born and raised in Kinston, North Carolina and studied Music Theory and Composition at East Carolina University. Prior to current ventures, Clay spent 12 years serving the United Methodist Church and Episcopal Church as organist and choirmaster for various congregations.

Clay spends most of the year playing in piano bars at sea for Carnival Cruise Line.
