We travel 2 hours to eat from Pennsylvania. It is always wonderful. The beef on kummelwick is the best roast beef sandwich you could want. Spotlessly clean, friendly service, pleasantly decorated and never a bad meal. Good salads and great menu choices. Highly recommended.

Had dinner with colleagues at Beef n Barrel and enjoyed the food. We started with the fried mozzarella sticks with an excellent marinara sauce. The rib eye was great, as a dish, on a roll and on a wick....well prepared and well served. The German...More
