We attended for Barrielicious and found the meals arrived in good time. The food was more than enough and delicious!! The view of the bay was amazing at night and the atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect. We found the wait staff very attentive and friendly. You have to try this place! Even the regular prices are very reasonable.

We took our friends for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Service was friendly and the food was excellent as always. Our friends were impressed. One of our favourite restaurants in Barrie! We especially like the patio in the summer..

I have to say that if you want a tender, juicy pork loin, go there! The salmon and veal were also very good but of the three, try the pork loin! We tried it during Barrielicious so we got a good deal but it's still affordable... just classy so you if you like to dress up like I do, this... More

Went with a large group (20). Very friendly staff, well prepared to serve us. Food came to us quite quickly, faster than anticipated. I had Chicken Parm with caesar salad and it was delicious. Other members of the party also enjoyed every dish served. Would highly recommend trying out this restaurant!! Thank you for the great experience.

Have eaten here several times ... nothing really memorable except maybe the roasted garlic appetizer. Decent wines too.
