They have two salads; The Caesar & The Boston "I love both" The balcony seating is fun and a free beer glass with an #Erdinger has created a nice glass collection for our new diggs! Like I said, twice in a week!

We recently dined there on a Saturday night. It was a wonderful meal and dining experience. The service was fantastic and the staff were very happy and seemed to all work together as a wonderful team to make sure everything was taken care of. We were in the upper level and there was a large group - but it didn't... More

Took my family to dinner and they were impressed. The food is wonderful. We sat outside, which faces a busy section of town, so it was noisy. But other than that, you have to try this great eating establishment.

We dined here one evening ( I felt a bit under dressed). Nice ambiance, staff seemed a bit short, but the dinner was good. Even though ( my husband a chef) detected it had been under a heat lamp a bit. All in all an enjoyed dinner.

Had been meaning to try for years after hearing rave reviews and was not disappointed. Dined with 2 friends on a weeknight and we all loved our meals. Very high quality ingredients, cooked expertly, at reasonable prices with a casual atmosphere and attentive service. A true gem in Barrie with its excessive number of mediocre chain restaurants. A must try!!

My Husband and I met with his Father and lady friend for our first lunch visit and were absolutely pleased by the food, service and atmosphere. The Boston Pear salad is incredible!! My Husband really enjoyed the Caesar salad and we will definitely go back again. We were searching for new places to meet for lunch as we do often... More

A friend and I visited this restaurant for the first time and it was a very good experience. The food was a bit more expensive than we typically go for ($20-$30 for most entrees). But the food was delicious so I don't feel bad about the price (It's not their fault I'm cheap :P). The service was also very good;... More

The best thing going for this restaurant is the food, everything on the menu is tasty and excellent. That said I find their prices a bit overpriced for what the restaurant is, the wine menu especially is way over priced, they offer only most glasses and if you want a full bottle it starts at like $60+ The atmosphere of...

I've eating here several times with a postive experience. Today was the latest. From something simple like the Mushroom Soup to higher end like the Breast of Chicken you will get a meal a step above other restaurants. I recommend visting here if you are ever in Barrie.
