“Always Consistent”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We once again had dinner at this great spot. Although they have many other items on thei extensive menu, the beef is always delicious. There are carving stations right in the dining area where you can watch them slicing! The
Kümmel weck rolls are salty and delicious. Just a word of warning, rare means RARE, but always delicious!

“Great food & a relaxing atmoshere”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We usually have dinner here once every month or two. The food is always good. If you are a beef lover, you MUST eat here! They may be known for their beef, but the hubby LOVES their fish...be it fried or baked. I really enjoy the Beef au jus plate. They also often have a chicken & biscuit special that is yummy too! The restaurant is one where you get dress up nice or come as you are....their are plenty of tables, and the Beef 'n' Barrel can accommodate large parties! Just remember, no reservations are taken and they are closed on Sundays!

“What a great experience”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Thank you for a great dinner here at Beef n' Barrel! Was in town for business and went here for dinner and it was truly a wonderful experience.

Andy our bartender was friendly and went out of his way to be sure we had a great experience. Also I wish I remembered her name but we met the Meat Cutter who made our sandwiches. I had never experienced Beef on a wick and I can tell you it was amazing! Also had sweet potato fries and coleslaw that were also great. If you have never tried this place don't hesitate and upscale your experience and sit at the bar with Andy!

This place will not disappoint! So glad I was able to experience it - Thank you :)

“Just plain awesome!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The food was just about perfect (beef on wick, fries and gravy, brilliant), but what truly puts this place over the top is the service. The bartenders are some of the most handsome guys on the planet, but they are much more than just eye-candy, they make the most amazing drinks. I highly recommend staying at the bar for dinner/lunch, amazing service and free entertainment. Oh yeah, make sure to try the mud pie for dessert. Mmmmmmmm....mud pie!
