Fun for Drinks

Had a nice time on Sunday visiting Donaleigh's. A good pub atmosphere with great staff and a fun clientele. They have a variety of tap beers and the ones we had were cold and tasted great. We enjoyed the poutine with the Guinness gravy, give them a try. Will stop in again when in the area.

My husband and I decided to stop in Barrie and spend the night on our way home to Toronto from Sudbury. We decided to try out Donaleighs Irish Pub for some food and drinks. The atmosphere was great. The service was amazing. We ate the Irish nachos and they were so delicious. The manager Frieda came over and introduced herself... More

I was traveling from Blue Mountain with friends after the new Year eve and we decided to stop at Barrie to have a lunch. It was one of the few open restaurants in the city. The place was not that busy but our service was really slow, I guess, because of the day, so they were probably short on staff.... More

Sitting in the shade on their back patio in the middle of a steamy afternoon with a cold drink and an appetizer is an amazing way to take a break on a Friday afternoon. Service was great and the food quality was also great as is usual.

My sister and I came by to have lunch on her birthday. We ordered typical bar food, nachos, a side salad, ciders and wine. The roasted beet salad was really delicious... goat cheese, roasted walnuts... spectacularly delicious. And then.... the Nachos. They are made with thick cut potato "chips".... the cheese, peppers, salsa and sour cream are layered at least... More

A few of us wanted a night out. We ordered wings, nachos and sweet potato fries. The portions are VERY generous. We walked were not able to finish eating all the food.

First time but not the last. Definitely recommend the Irish nachos made with potatoes, not tortilla chips and the croissant bread pudding!

Chosen for lunch by my son and daughter-in-law I tagged along wondering what pub food I might make do with - what a pleasant surprise this was! First of all the place is huge and popular, roomy and well kept. Manages to have plenty of pub vibe without the often dark brewery smell mood. The service was cheery and professional... More

A little loud if you are going for conversation, but the food is great, the drinks are great and the people who work there are excellent! I had a great time.
