Some friends from Nova Scotia were visiting on a cross country trip and one of them has multiple dietary restrictions. She was amazed and delighted to be able to order GF crispy chicken tacos and what she described as the best root fries she ever...tasted! Her husband had the maple bacon burger and pronounced it delicious as were my fish ( halibut) and chips. My wife had the small meat & cheese charcuterie board a favourite of hers. Both ladies have mobility issues and staff took care to ensure we were seated in an area that gave us lots of room and yet allowed for some privacy. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend B&B for anyone wanting a great meal in accessible surroundings.More

Such a disappointment. There was 26 of us and we had to send 7 meals back. Definitely need a chef who knows how to cook steaks. Had the filet and the sides were so small the 7 0z overdone steak covered them. The staff were...fantastic and tried to compensate. Free desserts to share but they were awful. Didn't have the heart to tell them. Drinks took for ever finished my meal before got my wine. It was a very special occasion many of us from the UK. So such a shame.More

I have eaten there now 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Each time the food has been incredible and Friday Nights are Prime Rib nights. The staff were all young, energetic and very professional. Kelly, the owner and I chatted a bit on the...3rd visit and I have got to know the staff, some who are family to Kelly as well. For a business that started up just when the Pandemic hit 2 years ago, they are survivors, and in my opinion, now the BEST restaurant in town!More

This is a great top end restaurant. The staff were all professional, friendly and attentive. We started with cocktails - deluxe B&B Caesars. They were superbly topped with a loaded cocktail stick of goodies. The food was top notch. Appys were a small charcuterie board...and an order of mushroom/cheese aranci. They were excellent. The small board alone was generous enough for 3 or 4 people. Mains were a seafood strudel, a lobster ravioli and a spicy Sicilian flatbread. They too were excellent. We were too full for desert. Drinks and dinner were $155 plus tip. We highly recommend this restaurant when in Peace River.More

Board 'n' Barrel is a wonderful restaurant. It has terrific food, great service, and a great view from the deck overlooking the Peace River. We went twice in two days.

Extreme tired after driving 14hrs on a delivery trip. Ordered from this restaurant to my hotel room. $29 for 7 Lobster Ravioli?? $26 for a very SMALL piece of Salmon, with rice pilaf & veggies? These dinner entrees didn’t even include garlic toast. Paid $3...for 2 orders, very small/thin toast. $20 for Mussels in curry sauce. How does this restaurant justify these prices? YES it was tasty. But seriously, $29 (online menu stated $28) for 7 little LOBSTER RAVIOLI?? (Pic has tv remote beside this takeout container for size reference). And $26 for a TINY PIECE of Salmon? (Doesn’t matter how much you amp up the description on the menu, the PORTION FOR PRICE is what matters. This was my 7th time on this same delivery trip. With more in the future. So I’ll be back at same location in future, quite a few more times. I was really looking forward to being able to order from here in the future. But was it worth $80 + with the $5 delivery & (unfortunately) I hit the % on debit machine so they got $12.29 tip on that? Unfortunately No, so FIRST TIME & LAST TIME ordering from this restaurant.More

I worked in Peace River for 20 days with the railway. I ate at the Board and Barrel around 10 times. The meals were absolutely delicious and nice to find in a smaller town. The people I dealt with were a pleasure to talk to...as well. I 100 percent recommend this restaurant and if I ever work in Peace River again I will be back.More

My second visit to this restaurant and both times the food is fantastic. Not a large menu but done right. Great job! I highly recommend this place and can’t wait for patio season again. Outside or inside, great service.

We were told about this place and kept putting off going here. What a mistake! 3 of us went out after work - the other 2 had the steak sandwich and it was good - cooked Medium Rare to perfection . But I had the...Spicy Sicilian flatbread. I honestly have to say that this was the best food I have ever tasted...and I have eaten in a lot of restaurants. It was ambrosia - the chili honey glaze made this spicy (about medium - not for the people who don't like spice) flatbread and turned it on it's head. Everyone tried it and agreed that it was the best food they have ever had. I ate too much of course - but couldn't stop eating it. Service was friendly but not real fast. Food was excellent!! We heard that everything is made in restaurant - including the root vegetable fries (which we didn't try, but should have) and the aioli.More

Have visited it twice recently, and have enjoyed the food and dining experiences both times. The ambiance is very nice on the patio and inside the restaurant. The servers are friendly and helpful. I've really enjoyed the burger, lamb, Irish stew and cheese cake. It...might be a bit pricey, but the presentation and quality is above the usual Peace River bar. My only criticism, is the food and drink service could be a bit slow, and the breading on the fish was a bit tough. Am excited to try them again.More

Stopped by for lunch. Nice spot right on the river. Very conscientious about Gluten free. No extra charges either. Even use a separate deep frier. Family run. Very tasty. Excellent service.

Have ate there twice now and not disappointed! Really good home made food and great service staff is very friendly and helpful. Our first meal there was a full house and still good service and food, it was a bit noisy but to be expected...with a full house and a tile floor. Will go back again for sureMore
