Couldn't be better

My husband were there at lunchtime, and had wonderful meals. He loves the lobster and cheese grilled sandwich with Caesar salad, and I love the quiche with the same salad too. The staff is always friendly and eager to please. We always leave with a good feeling.

We went to the Crazy Fox for Barrielicious on Friday and both had a great meal; I had the croquette and ribs; my wife had caesar salad and fielt mignon; we both had creme brulee for dessert. The service was friendly, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was great (the place was packed and full of great energy). Would... More

We have been here a few times and for some reason keep hoping it will get better, never happens! Our table cloth was dirty from the people before us! Yuck! My chicken was bland and boring. My husbands fish was like leather and just as dry! If your going to serve creme brûlée learn how to serve it properly! I... More

We visited the Fox last night during "Barrieliscious" - the reduced rate, all-inclusive meal which runs at local restaurants for a couple of weeks in the winter and summer. As usual, we had an excellent meal - terrific service - a wide variety of selections and generous portions. The entire experience is just the same as you would receive if... More

Went here a few nights ago for a spur of the moment supper with my teen daughter. She loved her ravioli and my goat cheese stuffed chicken was terrific, as was everything which accompanied it. I loved how even though we arrived early they were still open and we weren't treated like pariahs for being the only people in the... More

If you are looking for a restaurant in Barrie with great ambiance, food and service then Crazy Fox Bistro will not disappoint. The menu has a great selection and although the wine list is heavy on the California reds it offers a great selection. The wine list does not indicate that 1/2 litres are available but if you ask,, any... More
