My husband and I frequent this restaurant. The food is always amazing, no matter what you order. Large portion sizes, and good prices. The drinks are also really good! It's usually hard to find a parking spot because it's so busy, but there's a couple stores close by that you can park there after hours.

Had lunch with a group of friends for a 50th birthday party a few weeks ago. There were probably 30 of us in the group and ranged from kids to 60 years. The restaurant is always a favourite for locals and is known for fresh food with great tastes. The food was awesome and most had a variety of pizza... More

We use to be regulars there for years along with other friends . Very clean place with good food and service . But this place is now priced out of our budget. It still comes highly recommended but it's not cheap and there are other restaurants in the area that compare at lower price .

We have been to the barrel numerous times and have enjoyed the appetizers and the main meal every time. We have almost gone through the whole menu and have yet to find anything that we have not enjoyed. Service is great.

I honestly do not understand the reviews I am reading. I tried, because of these reviews, going back and found the same thing. Food canned, nothing fresh, still run through the pizza oven fair. Alfredo watery....is it the piped in smell of bread baking? I don't get it.

Great spot for lunch or dinner with friends or family. I accidentally forgot to change the sauce to marinara on the pasta when ordering the veal Parmesan. So it arrived with the meat sauce. The owner was wonderful and switched it for me :) it was super delicious! The mozzarella sticks and stuffed mushrooms are pricey but so tasty :)... More

We order from here because out of all the pizza places that deliver it's the best. Not our first choice of pizza but do order when we don't want to go out. We always order a large pizza. Unfortunately we have to order double cheese because they don't put near enough on. Sadly it still doesn't go to the edges... More
