Great Italian cuisine in a relaxed, but busy, atmosphere. One of the best restaurants in the Simcoe area.

Good place to dine in Simcoe. Nice old-school Ontario style pizza- the type that's getting hard to find in larger cities. They have a small patio, too.

Arrive hungry 'coz the portions here are HUGE! This place is generous with their servings and they don't skimp out on flavour or quality. The kitchen is fast and the food is great. Restaurant is very family-friendly. Our server was exceptionally friendly and attentive; that kind of service is hard to come by these days. This was our first visit... More

Horrific service, terrible food. Used to be such a great family restaurant and now the prices are ridiculous and the food has just gone down the tubes.

Went into this restaurant with a party of 10, no reservations on a Friday night, they made a quick spot for us. Service was excellent. Food ordered by all was excellent, everything from mussels, pasta and pizza. All steaming hot and excellent taste.

Earlier this month we had some unexpected company so decided to order out from The Barrel. We ordered a few dishes and one of them was Greek Souvlaki. We were charged $3.50 for delivery (which is ok given the price of fuel today) BUT the shock was the charge of $1.25 for the use of my debit card. These two... More

This was our first time at the Barrel. We enjoyed the surroundings and the food was excellent. My Mediterranean pasta was delicious as was my wife's Cannoli. Prices were reasonable. My only problem was with the service or rather the lack of. Our server was pleasant while at the table but we seldom saw her. No offer of water and... More

If you are looking for real Italian food made with local quality ingredients then go to the barrel. The food is always excellent as is the service and the price is much less than you would. Expect for this quality. Thank you for a wonderful experience

We went to the Barrel to celebrate a birthday with friends. Our waitress remembered us even though we haven't been there for 2 years. We were greeted like old friends. I ordered a personal size pizza, salad and desert. My wife ordered the same. The salads were fresh and had a tasty oil and vinegar dressing on them. The pizzas... More

The number of good restaurants in our area is minimal, however, this location provides great value and quality. I have used for most occasions, family, business and just with friends. Highly recommend.
