I sincerely don't understand the appeal of this place. My family goes here from time to time, but even they have come to admit the food at this place is just not that great. The Barrel touts their amazing char-burgers, but do a terrible disservice...More

We go here a couple times a year to toast a friend and hang out. The service is always good and the prices are reasonable. Order the Charburger if in doubt. You can't go wrong.

A great place in Hastings to get a great charburger or grilled chicken--both are great. They have a good menu and great service.
