First, the restaurant was spotless! The employees take just as much pride in a sparkling clean restaurant as they do in serving great food. I'm a bit of a clean freak and the cleanliness of the restaurant was the first thing I noticed. With that said, our meal of Beef on a kummelwick roll with German potato salad was fantastic... More

This place is a staple for me when I return home. I had my usual - rare roast beef on weck with German potato salad. Exceptional! My dessert was apple pie with cheddar cheese. I wish I had known they were going to melt the cheese. I prefer it hard. The waitress took excellent care of my elderly mother.

Great roast beef no matter how you choose to eat it. If you don't try the best chicken wings in Olean, you are missing out!

They do beef sandwiches the way they should be done. There are very few restaurants that can compare to this one.

We have been to Beef 'n' Barrel several times and always enjoy everything! The steaks are out of this world and the seafood is amazing! It's definitely a gem hidden in a world of franchises. The staff is super friendly and the prices are good for the quality of food. Note if you have never had a Western New York... More
