Rated 5 out of 5 by DMC123 The BEST Bar Cart!
I've been looking at bar carts since late 2014. My décor is traditional leaning towards that of an English country house. I've searched high and low, and nothing has come close to the quality and value of this one. It is exactly what I was looking for. It arrived in an enormous box, but that was because the frame came completely assembled--wheels and all. I only needed to lift it out of the box, and unwrap the 2 glass shelves and place them. Other readers are correct in saying the shelves were surprisingly substantial. So much better than other carts I've seen in person. The antique gold finish is lovely, and it goes well with the rubbed brass accents in the dining room. The casters move very well, and the cart is easy to maneuver over carpets. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BananaJoe Very high quality bar cart
You could search through dozens of tag sales and flea markets for the perfect bar cart, or you could just get this one. I am so pleased with how this product arrived - no assembly! and how it functions. I have been looking for a way to set up a small bar in my living room for entertaining and this is just perfect. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erica10 Vintage Bar Cart
I searched high & low for a bar cart for my home and was so happy when I came across this one. It had the vintage feel I was looking for with my 1920's house. It is made well and was packaged great. The glass is very thick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by goli55 Great buy!
I've wanted a bar cart for a while because it reminded me of my childhood in the 60's. We had one at my parents when they were entertaining. It had a cozy feeling. So I got one at Ballard's and we just love it. We entertain a lot and this is such a handy thing to have when you're busy doing other things at your party. The guests serve themselves and they have fun mixing drinks and getting little snacks from the cart. This is a beautiful cart at a great price. It's large enough to put glasses, bottles and a couple of dishes of snacks.
This is truly a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMM1 Even better than I had expected
The cart is as pictured. The glass shelves really surprised me. They are very thick and heavy. All you have to do is unpack the large box, pull out the cart, open the two boxes (with one glass shelf each) and you are ready to enjoy. Everything was packed very carefully. I definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by designerD Classy and affordable
I looked all over for for a nice bar cart in a gold finish at a decent price and this one was the best choice. It is very classy looking and well made. I was concerned with how it would ship, but it was packaged very well. No assembly required other than putting the glass shelves in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJReview Came broken
The handle came broken and I am unable to fix. Received a discount but still wish I had not purchased. Seems cheaply made to have broken and a stress point that cannot be glued back together even with aluminum glue. Disappointed.

I've been wanting a bar cart for several months, but couldn't find the "right one" - well, I certainly found it with this Jill Bar Cart! It is beautiful! The first one that was delivered was damaged, so Ballard had UPS come back and pick it up and promptly sent me another one that came in perfect condition - and took off the shipping cost for my troubles! Definitely recommend this company AND this product. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SMCR Good quality, very sturdy. Thick glass.
I was satisfied with the quality, glass is very heavy and fits perfectly. When you move it on its wheelsit does not shake and things/bottles remain in place. and impressed how well packaged it arrived.
Color is a little less gold than I expected but looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LauraUES Good quality product
My cart arrived on time and impeccably packaged (that said, I would have liked to know that it comes fully assembled, as the pieces are soldered/fused together and the box was ENORMOUS). All I had to do was unpack the glass shelves (also very well packaged) and place them on the cart. The price point is excellent for the quality, especially in comparison to similar products out there. I'd say the metal is slightly darker than pictured (less metallic gold, more brown). But otherwise, just as shown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Napleschef LOVE this cart
I do. I feel badly some reviewers did not receive one in good condition. Mine is awesome. Fully assembled, just had to put the glass in. The wheels do leave black marks on my tile but I only move it for cleaning. So maybe beware if it's on carpet. When you order from Ballard you have to be patient as it seems there are often delays. But this cart was worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Classtp1Me Elegant - Sturdy - Just Right
We were delighted by the appearance of the cart which was well reflected in the Ballard photo/description; a rare occurrence. It was easy to unpack, put together, and now has the place of honor in our family room near our entertainment center.
It is sturdy, rolls around easily to where we want it to be and just looks great both across the room or up close. I highly recommend it where its style fits

Rated 5 out of 5 by TPFlorida Great bar cart
I looked at a ton of bar carts online and this was the most reasonable. It arrived in perfect condition. It's very sturdy and moves around nicely even with all the booze on it. Have received lots of compliments and we love it!

This bar cart is a great addition to the nook in my kitchen, and the muted brass color goes great with gold accents.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MicheleS1957 Disappointed!
I was so disappointed! The cart looked like it was used??
the wheels looked old & there was rust in the wheels and a strange green moldish like substance near the
bottom of the cart in the corners?
It was like it was sitting in a show room for years & they decided to put it in a box & ship it to me??
I called customer service & complained that
I just paid $80 for shipping. It is going back......

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMMATL Get this bar cart
I just received my Jill Bar Cart. After months of searching for a vintage one in antique stores, I settled for this Ballard Design one. I'm SO glad I did! It has the feel of a vintage bar cart, with the quality of something new. It's not too heavy, but not too light. The metal frame is a mix between gold and silver, so it goes with any decor. It wheels around really nicely and has ton of space for items. I would recommend this to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by idesign3 Very good purchase
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this- I had been looking at bar carts and was having a hard time finding one in a good size that was not too expensive. The Jill bar Cart has a nice "aged brass" finish, two nice-sized, heavy pieces of glass, and sturdy wheels. Looks great in my living room! It was shipped and packaged extremely well.

I have been looking for something like this for years! My home is very mid-century Mad-Men like. The Jill bar-cart has just enough vintage touches that it fits in beautifully.
The cart came fully assembled. The wheels glide well and the cart feels well constructed.
The Jill bar cart is exactly as pictured.
I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CAVintage Quality Is only So-So
This is the first thing i purchased ar Ballard after looking at the brand for years. My husband and I saw this cart in the catalog and thought it would look great in our vintage home. The dimensions were good, it was 15 percent off so we decided to place the order. Truth be told, there were others we liked better. But this price fit what we wanted to spend on a piece like this.
Then i got an email that it was on backorder. I get that, but it would have been nice to know prior to ordering. After some consideration, we decided to keep the cart on order.
The cart was packed well, but it came with some minor rusting on one of the wheel covers. The areas where the metal is joined are really sloppy and now one of the wheels is slightly wonky after only a couple months of use.
When we saw the rust and sloppy attention to detail, we thought about returning it, but shipping would have been a pain. I'm hoping we didn't make a bad decision to keep it.

This is so worth the money. Elegant and impossible to find elsewhere for less than $800/$1000. Love it. Buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ballardlover2 Very attractive bar cart
Was very easy to assemble and it looks perfect where I bought it for. Was backordered a little bit, but got it before they said I would get it so I have it or the holidays!

Rated 1 out of 5 by speacey Attractive, but weighs a ton! Difficult to maneuver.
Paid someone to assemble so cannot comment on that. However, attempting to push this around corners easily without knocking into furniture, DR door, etc. is im- possible. Applied WD 40 to wheels which was not helpful.
Simply too clunky. VERY disappointing & a waste of money. A true “clunker”.

I think that the best thing about this is it's versatility. It makes a lovely display piece and is functional as well. No wobbly wheels, either!
