Always good food, usually friendly staff, and the try to accommodate the best they can. A bit of a wait but for good food like this it should be expected. Awesome place!
I Love everything I have ever gotten for here. It is our go to place for date night. Excellent wait staff.
Best restaurant in simcoe.
Another great meal...
traveling through Simcoe, coming from a city 9hrs away that serves 90% Italian food and all I have to say about this place is that the food is excellent! Very fast delivery, & big portions!! Would definitely recommend to anyone! More...
We go at least 4 times a year... Food is great and staff are super friendly! Always clean and food is always hot. Not a value price but the portion sizes are huge and you have enough for a second meal or very large snack. When in Simcoe definitely a must try! More...
First visit Nice food. Large variety. It came out to the table quickly. I will go back
Good food. Staff are friendly.
Food and prices are amazingly awesome
Was for business in Simcoe, triggered by all positive reviews a went there on a Sunday evening. Surprised that it was not that crowded as expected. Had a crazy Caesar salad, best one in ages. For pizza i took the house recommend one, size only 4 slices but make me fill completely. Taste was awesome good. Good atmosphere, the waitresses obviously do like their job.Highly recommended!! More...
Food and service is good we love the barrel premium pizza
Service was fantastic!
Great food! Home made taste. Menu has much variety. Had the lasagna which was delicious. Also they are very honest. I dropped money when leaving and called to inquire. They said someone had turned it in and they held for me when I returned. Will definitely return again. Thank you for your great service. More...

Fabulous food and great service
Great family restaurant. The Pizza and Pasta are great. Big portions if you eat in. Take out is decent.
Loved the smell when we walked in
Service and food awesome. First visit will be back
The chickpeas & vegetables in the soup were cooked just right, not mushy or overcooked. The seasoning was light, not overpowering, perfect temperature too. Our pizza was DELICIOUS ! Definitely returning to try some more items on the menu More...
Excellent lunch would definitely eat here again
Best pizza in town...not the cheapest but you get what you pay fir
Sharon and I shared an 8-piece pepperoni pizza - to die for. It was awesomely good!
Good food, great pricee
I love their pasta and theyre the only resturant ive found so far that serves angel hair pasta which is my favourite. Its a nice comfy sit down resturant you can bring your family to and its always packed but its worth the wait!
Food was very good and the foot traffic in their front door tells you all you need to know? Would eat there again.
Kids love it.
best italian food and service
Pretty good spot in the metropolos of simcoe. They have a great variety of foods....mainly italian and greek. Had a good plate of linguine with bolonese. Good. In a table of four ... all walked away pleased. It was quite a drive to get there but if i am in the area, certainly would visit again. More...
Great food and even better service!

Great as always
Great food, amazing service.. will definitely be back.The mozzarella sticks are TO DIE FOR.. I didn’t know ‘too much cheese’ was a thing. .. so yummy.They are accommodating and very friendly More...
Great food and service. The meals were obviously home made from scratch and delicious. Service was warm and friendly. What a lovely find on our way home from a Lake Erie beach.
I thought The Barrel was great!! I had a hard time picking from the menu because I wanted to try so many things. Prices are about $15-25 for an entrée which is fair and the food was really good! ! Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly. The servers were all very friendly. Food was served quickly. I will be coming back to try some more stuff! More...
Waitress was great but the cook got my itmes on my pizza wrong and gave me a $1.10 discount Wich seems insulting
Great service, excellent food, and fair prices! Huge menu so lots to choose from. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Simcoe!
I just want to say thank you for the exceptional service warm smile and consistency. Every time we go there we ask to sit in Jennifer’s section. She is always accommodating very efficient and fast. We enjoy the atmosphere and the bustle of the restaurant itself.The food is always consistent and the portions are wonderful! We will be back again . More...
Matthew Le Sage
Had meatball sandwich on a ciabatta bun that was toasted and it was delicious !!! The service we had was amazing, so friendly and served quickly. Had an icecream on heated apple pastry for dessert that was a nice finish to the meal. Wish had a picture of sandwich but got into it too fast. More...
Great little gem of a spot. The prices seem high but the portions won't disappoint. It's one of the only places the locals that have been in simcoe for decades will still order from
Excellent as always.
Fabulous food! Beautiful atmosphere! Great staff, very friendly, I love it here!
A Simcoe classic offering quality authentic Italian food
Father James Lewis

Great food! Friendly service! Very small beer menu. Mediterranean Pasta was excellent and definitely hit the spot.
Authentic Fresh and Delicious Pizzas have had many pasta dishes also very good food.
Love this restaurant. The food is always fresh, I love the salad dressing and the staff is always friendly. If you come to Simcoe, you have got to stop by this place and grab a bite to eat.
We have a local business in town and always order lunch from the Barrel! Excellent Owners who really care and listen, bubbly and friendly delivery gentleman, and superb food, home-made taste, affordable and FAST! Satisfaction achieved everytime! Thanks BARREL Restaurant! More...
Had a very nice Mother's Day supper with my family. Wings and pizza always good. The experience was even nicer due to our great waitress, Jennifer.
Food was good, our waitress was awesome
Best restaurant in Norfolk! Amazing food and service, never a disappointment when I dine here.
Always a good meal, but I find their sauce a little weak.

Jim & Krissy Ferrier
Always a great meal!
My family really enjoys the food and awesome hospitality. Best chicken souvlaki!!
Excellent food. The pizza was amazeballs. I can totally see myself coming back. Ordered the pizza and pasta tour. Opted for the caesar salad and rounds of rum and cokes. Although a somewhat limited bar menu. All in all, was not disappointed. The pizza was incredible. Done good. More...
We've been coming here for years, tried soooo many dishes (and absolutely loved them all). But I have to say we recently tried the wings and they are honestly the best wings I have ever had in my life! I would never have thought to get wings here but I'm forever grateful that we did. More...
The host was really great, he ended up getting us a booth at dinner rush by allowing us to move tables. Food was great and our waiter came around often. Would recommend!
Driving back from Niagara Falls on Hwy 3 for a relaxing cruise and we were fortunate enough to have stumbled across this Italian restaurant. Excellent food and service. We will be returning costomers definitely More...
Awesome seabassGreat time
Outstand. Friendly staff. Fair prices. Quality food. The best mozzarella sticks I've ever had. When in Simcoe eat here.
Food was amazing. 17 year anniversary dinner there and will be back again next year or sooner.
Wonderful comfort food at a reasonable price.
Great food, very pleasant service
Excellent Italian restaurant. Have been a couple times and enjoyed it everytime. Good local beers on the menu and the food is excellent. Highly recommend the mozzarella sticks. More...
It was very nice and lots of food too.
The menu is incredible
This is a great restaurant. Good Italian food. The staff was friendly and fast. Will definitely be going back.
Our family favorite restaurant. We dine there regularly as well as at home with their delivery services. I've never had a bad meal or experience there. Highly recommend them.
The Best. Always.
Wide variety of food on the menu and a variety of seating options. Food was excellent.
Long wait but food was pretty good.
Had supper with a large group. Staff very accomadating and friendly.
Always good food, great service
Good food, fast service and friendly staff
Good Italian restaurant, family owned. Always packed, always busy. Not everything from menu was excellent, my favorite calamari was just ok, but it is not an Italian specialties. Ravioli, soup and staffed mushrooms were good. More...
First time coming here and the food was amazing!! the garden salad i got was so fresh and delicious. I got the Fabrizio pizza and it was really good. Prices are not so bad either! Would recommend this restaurant. More...
I came for an early dinner and ordered spaghetti and meatballs with the Italian sausage ball appetizer, the service was very friendly and food was delicious and ready super fast. (for a dine in restaurant) the prices are a bit steeper than most restaurants styled this way but well worth the extra penny. I do recommend trying the barrel at least once if your in the Simcoe area. More...
Great food great service :)
Great food and service
Bit pricey but worth it for when you want to treat yourself. Great food nice atmosphere.
Excellent service for dining in and take out. Meal was piping hot and ready for pick up. Manager was very friendly and informative.

Rachelle Levasseur Van Ryssen
Without a doubt my favourite place to eat! It's our go to for family get togethers and when we have friends from out of town. We know that they won't be disappointed. More...
Helen Rust Fraser
This is my all time favourite restaurant. From the service to the food, it's the absolute best. They will never let u down. Family run business and they always go above and beyond. More...
Great food, great service… The menu has the widest selection that I’ve ever seen there and gets better with time. “I’ll be back”.
They were able to fit us (3) in without a reservation. I was so happy for that as we are from out of town and my wife needed a place with gluten free options. I read about this place and they did not disappoint. More...
We have been a few times and we keep coming back. Food is great.
We had a great meal tonight at The Barrel. The food was fabulous and our server was awesome. The only complaint that I have is the lack of a change station in the men’s washroom. Please consider putting a change station in the men’s room - fathers/male caregivers change diapers too. More...
Thank you for making it right! I love your food and appreciate your great customer service!
We made a last minute decision to go to The Barrel for dinner tonight. We did not have reservations but the wait was not long. Our server, Roselle, may have provided the best services we’ve ever had at a restaurant. She was so thoughtful, particularly with our three year old. So glad we decided to go!! More...
We haven’t been for a couple of years, but were in the area, so we stopped in, had some pasta & a pizza! It was so good, just like I remembered.
..pizza crust was fabulous light and tasty, not at all like the fast food pizzas, service was awesome & atmosphere was pleasant!
We’ll be back! More...
Ann P L'Ecuyer Musselman
Wonderful Family Restaurant! We try to get there 2 - 3 times a year - Aaron & I definitely go when he is home for a visit. My evening started feeling very special when two friends invited me out for dinner for my birthday my choice of restaurant. Barrel of course! I arrived early and Bruce the Matire D greeted me by name - what a lovely warm & fuzzy feeling, the waitresses are always warm & friendly & ensure everything is perfect. The food was absolutely perfect as always - delicious! The girls even sang Happy Birthday & then the ones I've known for years, even though they were extremely busy took the time to wish me well with a hug. Friends on their way out stopped & chatted - such a warm & friendly restaurant. Thank you to all for a wonderful start to my Birthday weekend! More...
By far the best service I've ever had... My 6 year old son wasn't feeling the greatest and got something in his eye and was very upset. . The server come right over to bring him some ice... Then she took him with her to be her helper. He helped with printing out bills and bringing a pop to a table and putting menus away. It meant the world to him. And the food was delicious... A great experience all around and my family and I will definitely be back. More...
We have eaten at the Barrel several times and it is our go to place whenever we are in the area. Really enjoyed the gluten free pizza. My husband and teenagers raved over the wings and their meat lovers pizza. Yum! More...
I grew up in NYC Italian neighborhood. Being in Ontario I was feeling lost for the flavour and authenticity of the meal. I have found it, I loved it. And I am definitely going back. The food is incredible. More...
Great place to eat! Quality is always great and service is amazing. Always a fantastic dining experience
Fresh and delicious. Great for couples or larger groups. Staff are very accommodating.

Very good food.We had a bit of a wait.
Its one of the best if not the best restaurant already in Simcoe. The portions are generous. The food is cook beautifully. It's delicious.The owners are hands -on with their business. They're accomodating. This place is always filled with diners and all seems to have big smiles when they leave. The food is worth every penny from the appetizers to the dessert and most especially the main dishes. It's a must visit when your hungry. More...
The service was great, food is excellent and i recommend everyone to go there and try it! You wont regret it
Food was great. Nice friendly service

Michael Joseph Rapai
Couldn't imagine a life without the Barrel. Pizza and wings are a staple - zaa is like nothing you can compare to - wings are like crack (figure of speech).
Great food and nice atmosphere, friendly service.
1st timers, seevice was excellent and great food
Very nice atmosphere and service. Food is top notch and good value
Great food and service.

The food is great.and it is my favorite restaurant in Simcoe.
Amazing food and a decent price. Make sure you book as it's always busy.
Great food and pretty good service
Awesome restaurant great prices
Best wings in Simcoe in my opinion. Absolutely love the mozzarella marina as well. Very big portions for a great price while not sacrificing quality. Went out with my mother which she had the linguine (Tetrazzini I think it was called ). She loved it as well, had the half portion which was enough for her. Service was great and very prompt. More...
We have been here twice this summer. There pizza has to be the absolutely best we've ever had. If u like good pizza u have to take the time and go here.
Good food and great service
The food was very tasty. Between the three of us we had some pasta and a grilled veggie sandwich. The service was fantastic! Julia, our server, made sure that our food was prepared exactly right (we've had some dietary requests), and really thought all meals through to ensure full satisfaction. Thank you so much! More...
Excellent service and food!
Both food and drinks were great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone
Great service. Food was cooked perfect. I don't have any complaints about this place. If you love pasta, this is the place for you.
Amazing food!! You gotta eat here!
The lasagna was awesome, waitress could've been a little more attendant but overall an outstanding meal
Great food, and staff read equally as good. We were a part you if 40 with little hockey players.
Was a good meal but I think East Side in Hamilton has better salad and spaghetti.....
Pretty run of the mill Italian place. Has good food and is clean. Just nothing special about it. I love pizza and pasta and they do it right. The lasagna is delicious. They have quick and friendly service. Their wait times never ridiculous. More...
Charles David O'Neill
For an authentic Italian experience this is the place. The pizza is to die for.
Wonderful atmosphere, great service, and amazing food!!
We drive 1 hour to get to the barrel. Never disappointed. We love the pizza, especially the restaurant special. Pasta is tip notch as well.
After living close to simcoe for 3 years now this was our first time here and it's a definite that we will be back!! The chicken parm is absolutely delicious and the house made salad dressing is one of the best I've ever had!!!
The Barell is definitely top notch when it comes to Italian dining. The menu selection is totally amazing. The food is made homemade the freshness shines through every plate, again totally delicious. The staff are very eager to serve you and make your experience the best it can be. There standards and quality of food are higher than what you would see in big cities around the world. Hats off to the staff and owners thanks for a great food experience. Highly recommended by this group. Looking forward to are next visit. More...
Really good Italian food in a homely environment
Great quality Italian food, and great service. Our table of 8 arrived with no reservation, but we seated quickly with no issues. The tables were a little cramped. We had a variety of pasta dishes and one small pizza and everyone was very pleased with their meal. Everyone was served their meal at the same time, which is great when you have a large party. The garlic bread was particularly yummy. We would definitely go again. More...
Had the meat lovers pizza. It was really good! Friendly staff as well
Excellent food, ambience, and service. Always a favourite.

Best pizza in simcoe.
great food and very friendly staff
This was my first time eating at the Barrel. It was great food. The service was excellent and prices were good. I will be going back again.
Been going here since I was a child. I'm 20 now and it's always delicious. Took a star off because if you don't go during peak hours, the food isn't as good. But overall it's a very friendly and warm restaurant. The waitresses and host are very friendly. Just go when it's busy. And this is authentic italian cooking by the way. Make a reservation and you will be fine. More...
My favorite place for salad and pizza
Excellent eggplant parm
Well worth the money! Good size portions.
The food was delicious and the service was fantastic!
