This roast beef on Kimmelwick was the best we ever had, bar none. The German potato salad was unique and very tasty.The wait staff were very friendly and hospitable. The prices for the humongous serving of beef was unbeatable. The birthday dessert was deee-licious. This place deserves six stars.

My husband and I have been dining at The Beef n Barrel for years. We just enjoyed another excellent supper in this classic, romantic restaurant. We dine here mid week because there is usually a long wait on Friday nights. Lunch is also a good time to go without waiting. There are many choices on the menu besides their excellent... More

A group of us stopped in on the way home from a fishing trip, based on the reviews we had found online. The reviews were on point and we enjoyed the food and service. The restaurant staff was very sensitive to the needs of one of our group who is gluten intolerant, and the service was very good. We'll stop... More

Great food and service here all the way to closing hour. Casino style haddock was a big hit for me but the broccoli and carrot medley seemed frozen and not good at all. So get a different side dish but come here and eat of in town!

I go for lunch specials at least once a month. We are able to get a wide variety of foods and the service is always very good.

Worth the wait. Comfortable booth for 3 adults and 1 infant. Ordered 2 beef julienne salads and 1 beef on wick. Needed doggy boxes. Left full and happy. Nice atomosphere and reasonable prices. Closed Sundays and holidays. Pleasant service and not rushed. Will be back again

First time in the area and a local recommended this spot. By far one of the best places I have eaten at traveling through the area. Food is amazing, but the service is exceptional, kris was my waitress and was top shelf, I love going to places were the staff love their job, and it shows at this restaurant. Can't... More

WEnt there with 11 family members including 5 children. Was there on a Saturday night and there was a wait, but the line moved. We were seated and our waitress-Amber, started right in being attentive with drink orders and was especially patient with the the kids. She was kept busy during the entire meal serving, cleaning up plates, asking if... More

Been here a few times while visiting family in Olean and always have had a good meal! Were there this past weekend for a funeral and had a party of 9. There can be quite a wait if you are there during 'prime' dinner times on the weekend but, we were there in the late afternoon and were seated promptly.... More
