We had the good fortune attend our daughter's wedding reception at Groovy Tuesday's Bistro. It was great!! The staff friendliness, the suitability and decorations of the facility and the food all were great. We can't wait to go back to try other items on their menu and enjoy their hospitality. I am confident that everything would be just a delicious... More

Thank you Mel, for a wonderful birthday lunch. I love every time I get to go to Groovy Tuesdays....whether it is lunch with the girls, dinner with my husband, or a gathering with a few couples. The food is consistently delicious and beautifully presented. I love the daily Naan bread choice which has the most yummy combinations of toppings. And... More

I was recently introduced to this quaint place by a friend who took me there for lunch. It had a great, unusual menu but with something for everyone. After trying the homemade burger, I was sold! Fantastic. Great daily lunch specials too.

Last minute decision to stop by for dinner and glad we did. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. It is another hidden gem in Barrie. If in the area this place is a must for dinner or lunch.

If you love delicious fresh food, and a casual friendly atmosphere; this is the place! We came from out of town for Easter weekend and I'll never regret making a reservation for Good Friday's dinner. This is a very small and intimate place. There is seating for 30. A couple of people actually ate at the bar and looked right... More

Been here a few times now; food always imaginative, tastes great and as requested. Kitchen is flexible and open to requests like "no dairy". Friendly staff knowledgable on what is on offer. Let loose and ask for a wine recommendation - surprises lurk in the wine rack!
