What a Surprise...It was a VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE

We haven't been to Barrel's since they moved to the corner of Ventnor Ave and Jerome Ave (i.e., Years). We took a chance, on a 4th of July weekend, with guests even. How pleased were we when we got a table immediately (reserved of course), and our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive, and... read more

I should have listened to by brother who happened to eat a Barrels two nights before. He said that it took 45 minutes to get seated even though he had a reservation, the restaurant was understaffed, extremely noisy, and that the food was average at best. He turned out to be right on all points. We made a dinner reservation... More

Had a reservation, a reservation submitted by my favorite server Joanie. I arrived 10 minutes early, was told to wait, completely understandable. After 20 minutes, I walk in, see the hostess, she was surprised that I was sitting outside. She acted like I wasnt there. So, she apologizes, tells me, I need 5 more minutes to set up. I agree,...

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.
