We went on a double date for lunch for barrielicious. The $15 lunch menu was fantastic. I had the pesto chicken sandwich which was fantastic. And so was the apple blossom for dessert. The service seemed a little slow especially considering it wasn't very busy but our waitress was very friendly and made sure all of our orders came out... More

We had a girls day out to try out Barrielicious yesterday...we decided after much discussion on British Arms because of its menu at lunch, and the prior experiences of some of our group. We were there around 11:30 and although we had a reservation, the restaurant was very quiet at that time. It filled up quickly, though, after around 12:30... More

I was very disappointed when my steak came out and everything was room temperature or... More

Why is this place included in the Barrielicious line up? This restaurant failed to impress in any way! Well, the jack dip was good but it went downhill after that. We were seated by the automatic fireplace, I thought it was there for atmosphere, No, it was there because the wind comes through the front wall, which explained the gum... More

Service good, but the food was only average. The place was dark inside and this made it seem like they were trying to hide the dingy décor, and not adding atmosphere.

Great place for fish and chips. Generous portions - you could share it. . Friday night is also two for one ! The service is fast and the staff go out of their way to make sure you are looked after. A regular Friday night visit for us.

Went out for dinner and was very pleasantly surprised. Wait staff was awesome and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was awesome! Pulled Pork Sandwich was great. They're serving prime rib dinner on Saturday nights now apparently. One of my hubby's favorite meals. He cleaned his plate even of the mashed potatoes! Mashed can be hit and miss... More
