Great for Family Get-Togethers

We have gone to The Barrel for years to celebrate family birthdays and anniversaries. Make reservations so you can book a large seating. Few years back they switched their menu to "heart healthy choices". The food is very good, fresh... I can't recommend one item because I've tried many and like... read more

Went to Barrel on a Saturday evening. Traditionally we get the pizza and pasta. This particular evening my wife ordered the souvlaki meal and I ordered the cannelloni. I have no complaints about my meal. The cannelloni was well worth the price of $15.99. However my wife's souvlaki looked to consist of not even a full chicken breast, one sliced... More

For those who must eat gluten free, dining out is often an unpleasant experience. The Barrel in Simcoe was wonderful. Their staff is extremely well trained in what is gluten free and also offer suggestions. The staff were aware at all stages of our visit that bread sticks should not come with the salad, and no bread on the table.... More

This is the best Italian food in the area. The menu is second-to-none; very complete. They serve everything Italian. The premises are excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. The owner is a good guy who strives to give you a great dining experience. He is very good for our community by creating good jobs for his staff and supporting... More

Went with the hockey team Saturday night and was trying to decide chicken parm or spaghetti and meat balls. Should have went with the chicken!!! Pasta was very good but the meat balls were awful. They were like frozen beef not homemade with veal like most Italian meat balls. I told the waitress they were awful , she just ignored... More

my son and I tried a few different things on the menu - the greek salad was very good, as was the alfredo. My parents are big fans of the thin crust pizza

We stopped in for dinner on or way to the lights. It is a great place to eat and the prices are reasonable. Make reservations as it gets packed very quickly, we showed up at 5 pm on a sat and had to wait 30 min. Overall a great place and would definitely recommend it.

I've been to the barrel many times over the years and it's always consistently great The service, whether lunch or dinner is very quick and the staff is excellent. I particularly like their mozzarella marinara and calamari appetizers. Biggest mozzarella sticks you'll ever see and very flavourful. I've tried pretty well all of their pasta at one time or another... More
