"Interesting" for business meetings.

Come here often. Mostly to work on, well, work. Food is nice, service can be a bit spotty. Really depends who you get as a server. Sometimes takes long just to get someone to stop at your table.

This morning my spouse took me to Tattinger's for Sunday brunch, and we are sure to be back again. The food was fantastic! There was such a great variety of breakfast and lunch items, each more tantalizing than the next. However, what I really enjoyed was Chef Paul's obvious passion for his work. He demonstrated pride, enthusiasm, and hospitality. We... More

Its been awhile since I have been here and the food has gone way downhill. Here for a week so I tried a few different things. None of them good. Food was bland, under seasoned and most of the time served warm or cold. They say new menu, maybe but I think most things come out of a box and... More

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that we were not able to please you with our menu items during your stay. Our new Tattinger's menu was launched in November and has been received with great comments. Some of the feature items like Bubble and Squeek and the Pork Shoulder bring our customers back to us time after time.... More

Went to Tattinger's Holiday Inn Barrie, for New Year Day brunch for second year in a row. Chef Paul at the omelette station was just as personable as ever. Omlettes made as you wanted with chatter and smiles to go along. Food was varied and delicious. Curry turkey was great!! The roast beef had both rare, medium and well done... More

Boo!! Bad decision to eliminate this buffet that's been in existence for years! Their best staff have also left. The Mandarin is still next door - but not as good as the Tattinger's Saturday Night buffet used to be!! Shame on you Holiday Inn.

We have eaten here twice and for the price ,there is a pretty decent variety for the buffet. I love fruit. Especially northern blueberies. I know this fruit isn't from canada , but it sure does taste like it. Even the raspberries were great. Also they didn't have eggs over easy. I asked for two and they brought them out... More

If you enjoyed the Saturday night Prime Rib Buffet or were thinking about giving it a try...you can't. It has been discontinued..and not only that, but my favourite chef is no longer running it and my favourite waitress has now retired. Haven't gone back except for buffet brunch that they put on Sunday morning as a farewell to my waitress,... More

The breakfast buffet was lacking in food, the toaster took 10 min to toast. The waitress was awesome, polite and made up for everything lacking in terms of food. Jenny, thank you for your kindness and smiles!
