When ever we’re in A.C we always take a short ride down to Barrels. The food is always very good with house made gravy (red sauce) meatballs, and garlic oil for dipping that crusty bread. I’ve had many seafood dishes there too all very good, reasonably priced and good sized portions. The staff and owners are very friendly and attentive.... More

On a side street with little parking but the best food at a reasonable price. We are summer residents of margate and dine there at least once a week. My wife and I both have some food allergies and they go out of their way to accommodate both of us. We have never had a bad meal our only complaint... More

I ordered take out from Barrel's for the first time in a few years. I stopped eating the food because of how terrible it always was but I decided to try again because it had been a while. Well, the food was just as awful as I remembered. It's a sin that anyone could even call this "Italian." The meatballs... More

Walked into resturant, there was no one there to greet us. Sat our selves and waited over 10 minutes to see another human being. Waitress comes out and takes out order and it took over 15 minutes for the salads to arrive. The salads were mushy with too much dressing and could obviously tell the lettuce was fresh. Then while...

This cozy place was recommended by friends of family and the food did not disappoint. Tucked away on a narrow side street without a parking lot, a reservation is definitely required for a weekend visit in the summer. Once inside, though, you will experience a great meal with professional, attentive service. Classic Italian fare with a homemade twist. We were... More

We like to order take-out from Barrels. Try the eggplant and chicken--really a nice dish. Soups are good too.

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday evening recently. Very cozy, very clean, well maintained dining room. Wait staff was excellent, our waitress was very attentive and obviously very experienced, a true professional. She explained the specials in detail and answered our questions completely. The pasta we ordered was fresh, prepared that same day (according to our waitress), and arrived... More

Every single Friday night I order at least twice from Barrels. My family all arrive at different times throughout the evening, and they all want Barrels. The Homemade soups are to die for..the chicken cutlet parm sandwiches are fabulous. The broccoli rabe is cooked to perfection...the Ceasar Salads amazing..they deliver and then they deliver again and again..

We went there to celebrate my sister’s birthday in late may and had a great meal. The service is friendly but with only one waiter and one helper it was a little infrequent (off season). The olive oil and bread is some of the best in south jersey, but don't get full on the bread as the entree's are large... More

The best I can say about this restaurant is our waitress was very pleasant & attentive. The food was average. About 20 minutes after leaving this restaurant I realized that my husband & I left our double wine container behind with an unopened bottle in it. I phoned immediately & was assured they found it & would hold it for... More
