Great service, good food:)

Our experience was fabulous; our server was friendly and even asked our names and remembered them. I ordered the best fish and chips I have ever had and at the end of the day the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was comfortable and even had pillows in the booths. If you want to go out for a... read more

Extremely noisy and the service left a lot to be desired. A limited unimaginative menu. We will not return.

My favorite are the fish and chips. The owner is very friendly and helpful when deciding on a choice for a meal. It can get loud on evenings when they have music so best choice is the back of the restaurant in a booth.

Called and made reservations having never been there before, for my mum's 73rd birthday. The staff I spoke to on the phone was extremely friendly and seemed genuinely excited when I asked what they could do short notice for her birthday. Pub has a great decor, lots of light and open windows. The great experience continued once we got to... More

We visited Barrie from another city for their Canada Day celebrations -- we didn't have a plan for supper and after checking out a few places, we discovered "The Local Gastropub". This truly was a serendipitous experience -- we received excellent, friendly and attentive service from the host, our waitress, another waitress and even the chef! This service clearly demonstrated... More
