The Barrel - Simcoe

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.

The Barrel is our favourite local restaurant for Italian food. Always a fantastic meal and great service. When you walk in you can smell the scent of homemade food created with care and consistency. Fresh ingredients, many of which are local, and I like the fact that they offer wines from the area. The menu is extensive with lots of... More

A friend and I visited The Barrel for lunch. I have also eaten there other times for lunch and dinner, and have always enjoyed it. The service has always been very good and the portions served a fairly large. The food has always been enjoyable, and I would rate The Barrel as a really good family style restaurant.

We have eaten at the Barrel Pizza in Fort Erie many times and love the food, staff are great, impeccably clean, good size quantities and you are treated like family. Based on that, four of us decided to go to the Barrel Pizza in Simcoe on Saturday night. I ordered the chicken Milano, which was just ok for $18, potatoes... More

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 them all! And the takeout pizza is best in... 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
