Always Great

I was back in town visiting family and I always make a point of one meal "at the Beef" because there is no such thing as Beef on Wick where I live in California We visited one evening with a party of 10. The service was friendly and efficient and the food came exactly as we ordered it. The... read more

We live here and this is our favorite restaurant. My grandkids love to eat here - it beats Gram's cooking - what a bummer. But I have to agree with them. Before retirement, I brought all my contacts here when I could. Casual, but great...

This restaurant has been a fixture on North Union Street, Olean's main drag at least as long as I have lived in the region - since the late 70's, The atmosphere is comfortable, a cut above an upscale Perkins. with padded wooden booths, captain's chairs, and Tiffany lamps. It's all about the beef here, with several great hunks on view... More

You can't go wrong with the Beef and Barrel..locals have known this for years! They have the absolutely best beef on weck (western NY specialty) OF ANY restaurant in the area. The place is always full as people get a wonderful meal for a very reasonable price and keep going back. Lines form on Friday and Saturday and remember they... More

The Beef on Wick is what the restaurant is known for. The sandwich was very good as were the fries. I also had a side salad that was good. We had a large group and we were served fast.

Beef on Wick is the special of the house. (But any beef dish from the menu is sure to please). It is so delicious, when we are in the area, we go out of our way to have lunch or dinner at Beef 'N Barrel. Lastly...save room for dessert :-)

My wife.and I had dinner with friends and both enjoyed our meals although my wife likes vegetarian. We both were able to find something we liked. I had a business lunch the next day and the portions were huge, but very good. My lunch was a very large sandwich that I could not begin to finish.

Had a dinner here with family and it was great. Brothers had prime rib and it was very good. I had a smoked pork chop that close to the best piece of smoked meat I have ever eaten. I will say what they called bisque was a seafood chowder which was again very good. They had this pepper jelly sauce... More

From the gracious hostess that came outside to let us know they are open to the friendly effecient waitress, this is a pleasant experience. The carving stations allow you to see how freshly sliced your Beef on Wick is. The German Potato salad was proclaimed delicious by both lunch guests. Their specialty drinks were unique and exquisite. The roads were... More

Picked this establishment based on Trip advisor. yet again, a great tool for travelers!! Fantastic service and good prices and nice servers. Only negative would be dried out dinner rolls. Steaks done to perfection ! Potatoes real! Salads fresh and the Blue Cheese dressing to die for. Will stop again next trip out !
