The Barrel restaurant is a wonderful home town experience with, amazing food, and very friendly staff. I would recommend anyone visiting simcoe to stop by and try it out. The owners are very generous and give back to the community.

Food at The Barrel never disappoints. Their menu has many options. Their sauces are delicious and the serving portions are generous. Staff are always helpful, attentive and friendly. A great family restaurant.
