It just always misses

Barrels has been around a long time but is not on most locals radar as a regular stop. The food is good but there is always something unfriendly here - go figure.

We ate here three nights in a row and loved every meal. This is a casual Italian restaurant that serves large portions of very good Italian food at reasonable prices, with Sinatra music in the background. They don't attempt to imitate Ruth's Chris, as some of the other places in the Atlantic City area do. If you need to see... More

Good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. Plus it's a BYOB. We went for dinner and were seated immediately. Many choices on the dinner menu, but I wasn't that hungry. I asked if I could have a roast pork sandwich. No problem the waitress said. My wife ordered eggplant parm and my sister had soup and salad. We were presented with... More

We tried Barrels and were delighted with the restaurant. The food was traditional Italian fare - very tasty with large portions. The service was attentive and superior to what you would expect in a seaside vacation spot. We have every intention of going back the next time we are in Margate.

Ordered delivery chicken was so dry could not even eat! Ordered some artichoke salad for 12 dollars had only ONE piece of artichoke and they forgot to send any dressing. Not a good experience

We picked up to go dinner after a day on the beach. The kids were having so much fun we let them stay on the beach, rather than leave to get cleaned up for dinner, and cancelled an earlier reservation at another place. I was pleasantly surprised to find local delicacies at a fabulous price with the grilled shrimp and... More

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
