A good place to meet friends

I found this pub to be like an average place. The food is average pub food in quality and price. I was there on a Sat night. There was some good live entertainment. It was good to have. The environment was loud but that is what to expect. The place was very busy. Wait staff were nice and... read more

Took forever to get a table and then was told dinner was no longer being served. Service was poor. It St. Patrick's Day they were not prepared for the number of people there. Were still letting in people even after they had reached the max as per the fire code. Not good.

I consider myself a nacho connoisseur. I eat them everywhere. It is my favorite dish and I have very high standards. I have eaten / drank here many times. GREAT food, great drinks, friendly atmosphere. Big portions, great prices. Everyone rants about their favorite dish, I kinda always enjoyed everything. And then I ate the nachos. Cactus cut potato chips... More

I get into Barrie a few times a year & had visited this pub in the past. I had a good experience the 1st visit & decided to go again with a different group of co-workers. Again the staff were friendly, there were lots of seats & we were waited on quickly. A good time was had by all. If... More

I do like this place, but its nothing like a traditional Irish pub. Its just got an Irish name and an Irish sign. No Irish pub would stop serving food at 10pm booze at 11pm and send us all home after. Especially when they are supposed to close at 1am! Sure it wasn't packed, but there was more then 5... More

Very good service, fun environment and food was much better than anticipated. Live music on weekends also a treat.

A lunch of their hearty soup and one of their famous sandwiches was an ideal way to celebrate Valentines Day on a cold February Saturday. This is our favourite Irish pub in the area.

I go to this restaurant/bar often. It has a great atmosphere, great servers, great food and selection of drinks. The food is consistently good, they offer specials most days which mixes up the menu if you get bored with the selections. They have an awesome patio in the summer which I love to hang out on and watch the downtown... More
