One of the best meals I have had out in a long time. A warm, friendly greeting at the front door and an amazing cut of Prime Rib cooked perfectly. Beef tips in sauce good too. Bread served with enough butter for a small army - a good thing! The service was AMAZING - Ronni took great care of us.... More

If you like Beef, this is the place to go. Take your business guests. A local favorite Beef on Wyck Roll.

Food here is fantastic. Seriously, get the beef. It is very, very good. The atmosphere is more of a "classic" restaurant, with ornate wood trim on the booths. The wait for getting food at a table of 10 took near 50 minutes, but I am unsure if that was because of the large group or what. I will have to... More

We went to this restaurant for my parent's anniversary. We were in the area camping and we were concerned that we would be underdressed in shorts and t-shirts, but that wasn't the case. People were dressed pretty casually, everything from tank tops and shorts to polo shirts and pants. It was clean and the waitress was friendly. Service was a... More

A pretty descent place to eat but nothing to rave about. Check hours before setting out to eat as we found several times they were closed on week-ends on Sunday.

I am in Olean about every 18 months for a week and Beef n Barrel is consistently a very good lunch. I have not had the dinners but I can see that this is essentially a Beef on Kimmelwick Roll place, and they consistently deliver an excellent product. The staff is friendly and professional, the food is consistently very good.

We have been going to this restaurant for years on our wedding anniversary and other times when we get the chance. It is always so special. The owners and the waiters and waitresses are always so knowlegable . The food is great and the service is fast. We love the Beef on Weck with the German potato salad and coleslaw.... More

If ever in the Olean, NY area, take the time to visit the Beef 'n' Barrel. This food and service are excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Beef on weck (locally available type of roll) is the usual favorite but the prime rib is superb as well. Desserts are very good and portions often are big enough for two... More
