My wife and I usu...

My wife and I usually enjoy the food at the Barrel, not this time. We ordered two panzerotties and a large Caesar salad. The panzerotties were mostly dough and when cut open a watery liquid poured out. The dough was under cooked and we think they forgot half the filling. As for the salad it was less then appealing, and didn't come with enough dressing. I hate to say but I think it will be a long time before we order from the Barrel again if ever.

Excellent

We have come every year in December from Hamilton to Simcoe to see the Christmas lights. We stop at the Barrel Restaurant first, and it is a highlight of our trip: excellent food, excellent atmosphere. There is a very large menu, so I know people can order what they want and sometimes get something different from what they want. Suffice to say that I find the Penne Capri on par with meals served in Italy, and my husband and in-laws refuse to order anything other than the lasagna because they enjoy it so much every time. Good work once again!

GRAZIE BARREL

We have been patrons of the Barrel since 2008 and try to go there for dinner when vising our parents. This etablishment has been an anchor for Simcoe for many years. We had the Italian short ribs which was the feature and my parents both had the lasagne. The food was excellent as always!! We had a reservation and the restaurant was very busy so I would advice you call ahead!! Our waitress was very pleasant I believe her name was April!

PATIO IF FINALLY HERE

Went to the Barrel for our Rehearsal dinner. The place was packed but the service and food were phenomenal. We booked the entire patio for our party and had two waitresses assigned to us. Everyone was happy with their meals and service. The new wine menu was great . Make sure you try the Itaian Rustic Poppers for app they are melt in your mouth delicous.

ITALIAN FIESTA

Went to the Barrel restaurant on our way to Port Dover. Our dinner was excellent. Our server was knowlegable and suggested we start off with calamari. It was excellent and was served with a great dip. The veal scallopini was very tender and HUGE!! The fettucini was awesome and had one of the best creamiest sauces we ever had! The service was very fast especially considering how busy it was!

Excellent

Excellent from start to finish. I was in town on business and was looking for a non chain restaurant to take a client. The Barrel was recommended by a local. The restaurant was large and very clean, staff was very courteous and professional. The menu was excellent with all the Italian favorites. I had the veal and my client a fresh chicken breast salad. Both were a very generous portion. We started with probably the best chicken wings I've ever had and the meals were excellent and very fresh. The owner came by at the end of the meal to enquire about our meal. He told me that everything is homemade using locally grown produce where he can, tomato sauces, dressing etc all home made. He even imports his own organic olive oil. I ordered a large pizza to bring back to Toronto which he cooked just short of ready. I warmed it up at home in the evening and the kids loved it. I can't wait for my next business trip to Simcoe.

A group of four of us made reservations for New Years Eve here. W e are very glad we did! The restaurant was packed when we arrived and there was about 70 ppl waiting to be seated without reservations. They had a New Years Eve menu which had a few appetizers, mains and feature wines and desserts. The waitress was very pleasant and gave us a free wine sample to make sure we liked it before serving. Even though she told us they were non stop busy since noon everyone was in a good mood. The restaurant was decorated very nicely and we really liked the Michael Buble Christmas cd...nice touch. Our friends from Brantford really enjoyed there food and atmosphere. If you do decide to go on the weekend or during Holidays make a reservations as they get very busy We will be back!!

I took some friends here for lunch. The service and the food were good but the portion sizes are not anything to write home about. The music selection and atmosphere were very nice and I would eat here again if I was in Simcoe.

Lovely birthday meal for Grandma. Travelled from Flamborough to see the Simcoe Christmas lights. Everyone was impressed - Grandpa says best lasagna he's ever had. Beautiful smells right from the parking lot, and bustling cheerful interior. Great value, great food.

We came to the Barrel from out of town to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. We had made a reservation and once we got there we were shown to our table. The restaurant was packed and seemed to be somewhat noisy. They were having a special Thansgiving dinner as well as the regular menu. We all got the Thansgiving dinner exept my mom who opted to order the linguini pescatore and boccocini salad. The thanksgiving dinner was amazing and very filling! We all enjoyed our meal and would be back again.

This restaurant was amazing and even though we waited 30 minitues for a table it was worth waiting for. We shared a few appetizers including the mussels, and caesar salad. My husband had the veal pizzaiola which was a huge portion size. We really appreciate how all the dinners come with a salad and dinner roll. The dressing will knock your socks off its so yummy. I am salvating just thinking about the parm dinner my wife had. The service was great we plan to go back soon

I was absolutley hyped by the feedback I found here about the barrel! One of my favorite things to do if given the chance is to leave good feedback, for any establishment I visit! The service was about averege today.... I had the linguine in their house sauce! My wife had the speghetti in marinara! My portion was of a decent size, my wifes in the half size probably big enough for a thirteen year old! The soup, ministrone was nice although I found it lacking beans and full of zuchini seeds which I found somewhat unpleasent!, but that is personal preferance! The restaurant is large and beautiful, but I definatly would not take my 76 year old italian neighbor there {testa dura}! A little pricey but all in all about a 7 out of ten!

terrible service

we walked into this restaurant around 9:15 and I guess they close at 10 or 10:30? the staff was not very impressed. after we were rudly seated a different waitress came up to our table and asked if we would consider eating take out from them because, "all the staff are going home now" I was so taken aback by this! we happen to live 3 hours from the restaurant so we said no and were rushed through our meal. awful!!!

What a great suprise with the Free wine tasting!!

We brought our out of town guest to The Barrel for dinner and found out that they were also hosting a free wine tasting hosted by a local winerie that night. It was absolutely great to mingle and try the wine with also getting a little wine lesson from the owner of the winerie. The added bonus was that the food, and service were also very good and our friends were thrilled with the quality of food. We love you Barrel thanks for another amazing night out!

Love the food here. It IS the best Italian anywhere! The marinara sauce is sooo goood. Just alittle spicy, just the way I like it! Husband loves the panzerotti. Enjoy sitting in the booth than tables. Rose (waitress) is such a sweetheart! Cesar salad is great but very very expensive when you order takeout.

A fine experience in Italian Dining,,

When we arrived there was a small wait. But we stayed since we love Barrel food.. The lobby was full but moved quickly. The staff were courteous and frindly from the door to the waitress that served. The manager stopped by to see all our needs were met she was a very friendly mid age woman. The waitress was quick to get us started with our drinks and requests, even though she was clearly well booked she never let it disturb her attitude or service to our table or the others around us. The restrooms were clean and well maintained as well. This is an important asset to any dining experience. I would greatly reccomend this Barrel restaurant to anyone, for dress or casual dining.

Food was great

Anything you order from this restaurant is amazing. Their homemade house salad dressing is the best we have ever had. The Tuscan steak was served with fresh local green beans and oven roasted potatoes which my hubbie truly enjoyed. We will be back soon..........
