Good place after work

Though the wine list could be way more expansive (only local wines-yuk) the atmosphere is fun and a good place to go for pub food. Would not recommend if you are a wine drinker. We left without ordering drinks and went somewhere else.

How I describe how awesome this place is. You realize how many restaurants are in Barrie, right? Well this one is by far my FAVOURITE. They make almost everything on the menu from SCRATCH. I have yet to dislike a soup. My favourite thing on the menu is the Shepherd's Pie, but I've also had all the tacos, the Beet... More

Pretty good spot to go for suds or grub. Lots of screens to watch the game(s) lots of great staff so we were happy with the recommendation we got to eat here. The pub gets busy especially the patio but most on the strip do so we opted to eat inside. A perfect pull on the Guinness had us ordering... More

Great food but wait staff are snooty and not very friendly. They seemed irritated that the kids were there. No one checked in on us through the meal. Disappointed

My father and I tried the fish and chips at Donaleigh's in July 2015 and loved the place. The food, service and atmosphere are second to none. I was so impressed I'm headed back this week for a nights stay in Barrie with the wife and there is no question in my mind were we will be going for dinner.

What a terrific lunch! We eat here every time we are in Barrie and we are never disappointed! This time I had the Cobb salad and it was delicious, fresh and with a lovely presentation. Our server, Michelle, couldn't have been more attentive and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back every chance we get!

Love going to Donaleigh's! Food is always good! They have cold cider on tap! My husband and i enjoy sitting on the patio. We get to people watch while we are having a cold beverage & the best nachos in town! Have been several times for lunch. My favourite pub in town for sure!!
