Best steak sandwich ever!

While vacationing in Long Point, we took a short road trip to Simcoe and stopped here for lunch, which was delicious! I had the Shaved Steak Italiano sandwich, which was literally the BEST steak sandwich I've ever had. They have a big dinning room and have an extensive menu of Italian cuisine items.

Our server was the greatest. Great customer service. Our family enjoyed the pasta, veal sandwiches and pizza. Lovely atmosphere and very attentive staff.

We were excited to go out for supper, decided on lunch instead while on our week vacation to this area. I read recommended restaurants prior and settled on this restaurant based on good reviews, happy it was not a chain restaurant as would prefer to bring business outside of a chain. The prices were suitable, portions a good size and... More

Shocked. Just shocked. This has always been a fairly good family restaurant and tonight I went with my husband for supper, after working in my own kitchen all day, it's always nice to have someone else to cook for me. So we both order and I order one of their recommended specials. It was supposed to be chicken breast with... More

If you are looking for great food, big portions and a quiet atmosphere, this is the place to go. We discovered the Barrel accidently on one visit to Simcoe many years ago and we go to this restaurant each and every time we are in Simcoe. The waitress remembers us every time. Food is delicious. Try the Baked Spaghetti. It... More

I had the fettucini carbonara with a fresh salad and hot bun and it was wonderful. My sister had the ravioli and also enjoyed it. The waitress was fun-loving and great at checking in on us. Highly recommend this place

We were here for lunch on Wed. Aug.5 2015. I had read reviews of this restaurant, so we stopped in to give it a try. And I'm really glad we did!!! We had the Pizza and salad for two for $19.99. It was superb, the pizza had a thin crispy crust with just the right toppings for us. I think... More

Stopped here on our way through and it was a great choice. Service was good and fast, excellent menu items with lots to choose from and great food. I had the Mediterranean pasta which was a veggie pasta and then got two shrimp skewers. It was delicious and tasted homemade and fresh. The shrimp were some of the best I've... More
