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.

Restaurant choices in Simcoe are limited. Fine dining or McDonald's..... The Barrel is an alternative between the two. Good food for a reasonable price. Salad, meals are always good and never the plain old frozen entrees that you get at some of the 'chain' restaurants. You will enjoy a good meal.

All of the food is excellent but we always enjoy the wings. They are my favourite item here but the pizza is excellent too!

Simply put, been here half a dozen times for lunch and dinner. Never been disappointed in the food or service. Best wings around, and I try wings everytime I have a meal as my appetizer. Try the cream of carrot soup if they have it, didn't like the sound if it... Gave it a shot and wished the bowl would... More

We really enjoy the Barrel. The kitchen is clean, staff are great. It can get crowded when it is busy and the parking lot is a tad squishy if you have a big vehicle, but the food is really yummy!
