We visited on January 30th, 2016. It was very busy so we had to wait almost an hour because we had driven an hour to get there and didn't have a reservation. We decided to wait. It was well worth it! Our waitress was very nice. Our food was delicious and came to the table piping hot. The portions were... More

First time visit to The barrel. Welcomed immediately. Service was good and the server was very pleasant. Food was good and tasty. Entree included choice of Soup or salad and tools. Quantity of servings were adequate. No complaints about the whole evening. In summary. It was good. The minestrone soup was very good

Since we moved to Norfolk we have been here twice and each time I have said to my husband why did we eat here? The portions are incredibly small and the prices are astronomical! For the cost of a meal you would think that what comes out on your plate would fill your belly! I have walked out of this... More

It was an amazing dinner. Everyone was so happy, we tried so many meals and everything was great! I can't wait to go back! I had the stuffed mushroom and veal parmesan, both were amazing! I tried the wings, stuffed chicken marsala, and the mozza sticks and I would have been happy ordering those as well. Mmmmmmm!!
