Beef & Barrel has the best prime rib. It's always tender and delicious. The serve staff (especially Regina) are very attentive and pleasant.

Had not been to the Beef and Barrel Restaurant & Lounge in a while. The first thing we noticed is that they put in window, which let in a lot of light - a big improvement! New tin ceilings and the front of the reception desk also had tin paneling. Behind the reception desk was a very familiar face -... More

I ate here at least twice a month when I lived in Tennessee and had to go back to see if the B&B Restaurant was still one of the best. I was not disappointed. The first thing i noticed is the remodel. I liked the old insides but I must admit that the new 'innards' are great. I always had... More

Sit down restaurant with mostly beef/steak items, chicken, some fish, some pork and sandwiches. They seem to have daily specials that were special entrees at the regular prices. Most meals were around $15 to $20 (some higher) and included bread, soup or salad, vegie or potatoe, and the entrée. We both had prime rib that was tasty but fatty. We... More

This was my second visit and it was as unimpressive as my first but I thought I would give them a second chance. I had a New York steak and crab cake combo. This steak was thin, grey, and very overcooked. The crab cakes were two soggy patties of what seemed like leftover Thanksgiving Day stuffing that may or may... More

We've been twice in the last year, Not sure why we gave it a second try. The decor is late 60's, probably the last time it received a thorough cleaning. The food is just ok. My wife ordered Prime Rib but it wasn't Prime Rib. It was so tough she had to saw on it to get a piece. My... More

Where else can you get an entree, soup or salad, dessert and a drink all for $10.00. You are full when you walk to your car. The restaurant is clean, newly redecorated and the service is excellent.
