The new winter 2015 menu does it again! I am always amazed at how Groovys takes a delicious twist on classic dish. I had the tuna melt (which was out of this world!) and my lunch date had the feature burger (always his go-to, and never disappoints). The new bar area is great – makes it really comfortable to pop... More

Restaurant is very small....walked in and we were seated near the door. The waitress who took our order seemed to lack personality and any type of charm. The white wine was served in a large Merlot style wine glass...I may sound snobby...but really?!?! I ordered the stuffed chicken that arrived both "dry" and "unstuffed". I requested additional gravy and asked... More

I had the opportunity to have lunch on the run today at Groovy Tuesday and what an experience it was. Presentation was great, large portions and food was fresh and tasty. The quality of food doesn’t get better. You will not be disappointed.

Best burger ever!!! Naan bread pizza with figs, steak and chèvre was delicious. Creative soups (pear, parsnip and spinach today), interesting salads and lots of tasty appetizers. The atmosphere is cozy but bright and the bar is perfect for a drink and a snack. Come here, you won't be disappointed! It was a lovely way for my husband and I... More

Small, busy, noise no bother, service great, food scrupulous, tasty, the overworked great waiter Brent recommended from my given 1,2 choice, appetizer delicious, main more delicious ( seasonal Spinach Bon Bon - Wow ), dessert simple brownie and their peanut butter ice cream a good end. My taste bubs were treated to a memorable taste sensation. Will recommend this establishment.

Ladies, you are doing it right! Wine selection is awesome, daily features are always creative, and the fact that the menu changes with the seasons is really refreshing for Barrie---I think it shows that there is care put into the restaurant, and that the chef is versatile and educated. Dining out is a hobby of mine, I've also worked in... More

This quaint personal (and local) favorite delivers consistently delicious meals and upscale service in a quaint, comfortable and tremendously decorated Bistro-style dining room. The food is Stellar. Full stop. Mel's selection of plates is constantly changing with the seasons to spotlight local ingredients. Chefs Sarah and Em serve up all your favorite comfort foods with a "groovy twist". They are... More
