I've been to Donaleigh's countless times. Both for food and for drinks in the evening. The food is decent! Drinks are definitely pricey, but it's hard to find a place that's cheap nowadays. I've had mostly positive experiences, but not an insignificant amount of unpleasant experiences. One time I almost swallowed a toothpick that was in my beer, scary and... More

My wife and I often frequent this eatery on Friday or Saturday night when we are in Barrie. Great atmosphere and pleasant servers. The Wings and nachos are fantastic. They have expanded with the demand and there is ample place to sit and dine or have an after work drink. It is the in spot for many of the Barrie... More

OMG I have had a lot of nachos in my day but wow these ones blew them all away. Made with homemade potato chips and lathered with cheese and all the good stuff, somehow every nacho was coated with a good portion of cheese.

I have been here with family and friends a few times. Nothing special. Shepherd' Pie should be renamed "pea pie" as that is all it contains. Fish is extremely greasy. Lots of people drinking way too much.
