Summer Patio

My friend and I went for the patio, it was full as it was Promenade Days, however we were able to enjoy the back patio (a nice hidden gem!) I had the steak and brie sandwich, which was delicious! Service was fine, nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about but the food was great!

We have now eaten are Donaleighs a few times since moving back to Barrie and I have to say that everything I have eaten on the menu has been delicious. The nachos are to die for. They aren't made with nacho chips but with think slices of potatoes. I highly recommend putting the pulled pork on them. The portion is... More

The staff were top notch, made us feel like regulars, although it was our first time there. The food was almost too good to describe. Helpings were abundant, food was very fresh and appealing.

There's a reason Donaleigh's is always busy, even after the expansion: they're fantastic. They have a great selection of adult beverages, but their food is also excellent. (Their menu was developed by the same chef who runs Shirley's.) We always bring our first-time guests. It's sure to impress.

Group of seven that was seated promptly on a Sunday evening. Very attentive service. Nachos were suggested and best ever. Would go out of my way to return.
