Great Italian Meal

My family and friends choose the Barrel regularly for dinners. We always get a fantastic meal and the service staff is friendly and helpful. We love trying the wines from the area that they carry.

We have gone to the Barrell restaurant a few times and the food and service is still great. The four of us all had ordered different meals and nobody was disappointed on what they had. Everyone ordered Italian meals, except me. I ordered the Pearch dinner and it was as good as the Erie Beach. Each of our dinners came... More

Always enjoy the food and atmosphere, but regret asking for substitutions. I ordered the Veal Parmigiana and asked if it were okay to have angel hair pasta in place of spaghetti noodles. The waitress said no problem but never mentioned that I would be Charged $2.99 for this trade. Can you believe it $2.99!! Plus 3 salads were upgraded to... More

Very nice welcome to Canada to a Texas girl. I was made to feel welcome from entering to finishing my excellent dinner. My server was attentive without hovering. I ordered the osso bucco which came with a Greek salad. Both were excellent! I also had some cream of mushroom soup that was homemade and delicious. I will be here for... More

Not just your run of the mill pizza joint. Reminds me of a small town Olive Garden, but with more dated decor. Great food and very good service.
