Birthday family dinner

Went for our daughters 20th birthday. Nice quaint atmosphere. Waitress very pleasant. Food was amazing and piping hot. 4 of us got the stuffed crusted pecan chicken and husband got steak. No complaints.

We attended a family function on Friday the 24th and could not have been more pleased. There were approx 30 of us and you would have thought that there was only one. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. This restaurant is highly recommended and we will certainly return

Not only is the quality of food extremely high, and the service simply excellent (thanks again to our very professional server Nicole), I can now say that there is consistency from visit to visit, as this was my second superb experience at Crazy Fox. There is also a very respectable wine selection that Nicole was very familiar with and offered... More

Had a fantastic dinner with friends on Saturday, March 28th. Had a great table with a view of the kitchen. Had several appetizers and fantastic entrees for all. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. The absolute highlight of the night was our server Leslie. She is fantastic and made our experience at the Crazy Fox truly a night to... More

One of my favourite spots for dinner out with my husband or girlfriends. The service is always consistent , friendly and professional staff. A must try is the signature Boston Pear Salad, a meal in its self. The sea bass is very good, a restaurant that we frequent often.

Well, we were in Barrie again and decided to return for another perfect steak. Honestly, this place serves the best steak I've ever had outside of the one my make of course! We came for lunch and that was it, I was satiated for the day. Great portion size, excellent caesar salad to go with my meal and fantastic fries.... More

Very good service. Food was good, not spectacular. Nice environment and reasonable price for quality. Would definitely go again. To reiterate - the service here was the best feature. Very friendly and not intrusive yet still very helpful. Parking could be bigger!

My husband and I attended a number of restaurants for Barrielicious, and once again I will say that The Crazy Fox is our favourite. The serving sizes are perfect, my escargot was heavenly. I had the chicken and my husband had the sea bass. The presentation was picture perfect, and we could tell how home-made everything was. This restaurant so... More

Decided to try the restaurant for a quick lunch on my own before heading out of town. First, the water glass at the table was so caked with water stains that I asked for a soda water, as I could not drink from it. The water glasses at the other tables seemed to be in the same condition. I ordered... More
