I always receive a consistently good meal here. Service is pretty much always top notch and the host is always very attentive and recognizes parties meeting people whom have already been seated like a sixth sense. I always feel at home here and very well taken care of.

Hotel desk manager recommended the Beef 'N' Barrell restaurant and was a great recommendation for dinner after an 8 hour drive.The IPA beer was also great with the roast beef.

Cannot beat this place for decent, consistently good food. This place is not gourmet, but the beef on wick is great and you can get a cocktail.

Very pleasant restaurant. Service is outstanding. Food is fabulous. The beef is perfectly cooked and all their food is great. It is obvious that great pride and care is taken in everything they serve and those who serve it. Have never had a bad experience in this restaurant. Highly recommend.

We had the opportunity to have dinner at this establishment on a Saturday evening late in October. It was early in the evening, around 5:00, so the restaurant wasn't very busy. I will say that every staff member we encountered was terrific...very friendly and helpful,. The restaurant itself was very large, with many tables. The decor was "nice" if not... More

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.

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
