The food was really good and the service was just as good. I will definately be going back There is variety in the food choices... read more

This is a favourite for a lot of birthday parties, anniversaries and special date nights. My daughter's all around favourite. On her birthday, May 1, we will be back again. Great staff, licensed, friendly and huge assortment

Always enjoy the food and atmosphere, but regret asking for substitutions. I ordered the Veal Parmigiana and asked if it were okay to have angel hair pasta in place of spaghetti noodles. The waitress said no problem but never mentioned that I would be Charged $2.99 for this trade. Can you believe it $2.99!! Plus 3 salads were upgraded to... More

Very nice welcome to Canada to a Texas girl. I was made to feel welcome from entering to finishing my excellent dinner. My server was attentive without hovering. I ordered the osso bucco which came with a Greek salad. Both were excellent! I also had some cream of mushroom soup that was homemade and delicious. I will be here for... More

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
