Susann Briggs and Nancy Irick-Briggs opened their first restaurant and winery in Winnsboro in 2005. The Lou Viney Restaurant and Winery became a fast success with wines they created and fine food. The Barrel House on Market Street followed in 2017. Once again, they created an atmosphere and menu that their followers fell in love with. It became a true gathering place for the Winnsboro community and another success story for Susann and Nancy. The growth of the restaurant found them looking for a new location with more seating and a larger kitchen. They found an old mill just a few blocks away and saw great potential. After months of planning and intense renovation, their dream became a reality.
The Barrel House has become well known for their delicious and creative food selection. The menu offers soup and salad, meat selections and their famous award-winning Barrel House Burger. You might also enjoy the Honey Bourbon Glazed Chicken, a variety of Flatbreads, the addicting fish tacos or the amazing Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Sauce.
At the bar, you can get just about anything you can think of. From Jake’s famous martinis to a wide selection of specialty beers and wine. The long bar is a great place to make friends and to meet a lot of the regulars.
