The place is well decorated and is very clean and extra large. The menu is extensive and the food is great. Beef on wick is their specialty. If you never had one, try it. They have everything from a fish fry to steak.

We met our CT son and his family mid-way to celebrate our 45th anniversary in Olean BECAUSE we all love the Beef and Barrel! The atmosphere is inviting yet classy, food always super, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. All six of us enjoyed an appetizer, hearty meals, a dessert each, and superb service- for only $111.?? ! ( two... More

Read the reviews so I figured I would try it. Had the Beef on a Wick for the first time. It was great but reminded me of a roast beef sandwich but better. The overall restaurant looked great in the inside and outside. For business or just a casual meal this is the place to go in town. Staff was... More

The service was fine, but felt we were rushed. Not a place to go to if you want to spend an evening out. As for the food, everything we ordered was very good.

Famous throughout Western New York State, a beef on weck is simply a roast beef sandwich on a kummelweck roll. The beef is served hot, rare and cut thin -- and the roll usually is dipped in au jus and topped with horseradish. Having been raised in WNY, I know of several bars and restaurants in Buffalo and Rochester that... More

Was there for lunch recently. First of all they have the best mozzarella sticks I've had in the area. The outside crunches and has a nice flavor while the cheese is perfectly melted. The marinara sauce is top notch. The cheeseburger was fine. The bun was great, soft and buttery, but the burger was sort of bland and over cooked,... More
