Regarding Newton Theatre Shows

The Barrel House is located within walking distance from the historic Newton Theatre. Because of this, we tend to get fairly busy just before and just after The Newton Theater show dates and times. We strongly recommend if you are attending a Newton Theatre show to make a reservation, even if you don't think we'll be busy, just to make sure you know you'll get a table. The best times before the show would be anytime between 5:00 (or earlier) to 6:30 (the latest). For any information regarding showtimes at the theater, check out their website at
