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

I usually order the same thing every time I go to the barrel - either the chicken Greek salad with extra tzaiki or the gourmet chicken sandwich. I look forward to "that taste" and am never disappointed.

I live in Simcoe and it had been years since I have been there to eat so friends asked us to go there for dinner. I had the lasagna and it was okay but I found it was very plain tasting. My daughter and husband like the pizza. Maybe next time I will try the pizza.

Have been to The Barrel several times for both lunch and dinner and have tried several dishes. I always leave quite full and very satisfied. We call ahead with our lunch orders and they are served to us as soon as we arrive. The pizza is just delicious and the pasta dishes have great flavour and presentation. This is a... More

stopped here while spending the day in Simcoe for work and it was delicious. The value was great for the price. I had the baked penne with sausage and it was great!! The marinara sauce is great and the sausage seemed like it was house made, which i love. Would recommend this place to anyone popping through town. It was... More

I was disappointed with The Barrel during our last visit. In my starter salad there was a large plastic lid to a salad dressing bottle. The waitress was great and very apologetic coming back quickly with a fresh salad. The couple we were with ordered the chicken parm..as he began to eat he discovered it was not the chicken it...

This little gem of a place is a true treasure in Simcoe! The food is consistently delicious! The portions are just right (especially if you like a little left overs for the next day!) The value of the food is great. The atmosphere is great for big groups, family dinners or date night!

This restaurant has a broad menu that focusses on the Mediterranean region, with pizza, pasta, and cheese dishes. They also feature local Lake Erie Perch, pan-fried and served with a choice of sides. Ingredients appear fresh and there are skilled hands in the kitchen. Service is quick and friendly, as befits a family restaurant. This restaurant is on a main... More

The food is so tasty. I am a huge fan of the Barrel. Service is great, food is good, lots to eat. I love the chicken Slovakia as well as the fetticine. The wings are very tasty as well as the salads. The lunch menu is also terrific. I recommend this restaurant to those travelling to or through out town... More
