You Know It's Good When..........

Dining out is about the total experience. Last evening we had the distinct pleasure of enjoying excellent food, in the company of friends. Being residents of Northern Ontario it can be assumed that we do not have easy access to all of the finer things that other parts of the country may have to... read more

We have had several family dinners here with no disappointments. The facility needs updating but the food is very good and reasonably priced, with a wide selection on the menu. Service can be a little slow with larger groups. Best in the off-season to avoid the post-golf crowd. Nice view over the 1st tee.

For most part, food was excellent. Reservations for 10 were made weeks in advance. However restaurant only had 1 server working! Service was slow at best, no follow up on orders, For most part food was excellent except for Baked Potatoes which were cold.

We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at Root River the end of September. Mother nature certainly played a big part in making this wedding the success that it was. It was a beautiful fall day, with a temperature in the high 70's!. The ceremony was held at the first hole tee off, followed by drinks and delicious appetizers on the... More

We recently visited Barsanti's and were pleasantly surprised. The seafood was excellent. The asparugus and ham appetizer was delicious. All in all this is a great choice for a meal in the Soo.

A safe predictable place to go out for dinner. Nothing fancy, but you know what you will get and how you will be treated. Reliable. Never a disruptive crowd. Standard fare, clean and friendly. A wide menu selection of Italian food. Plenty of convenient parking, pleasant golf course views. Caveat; Not a "date" location. It is a golf course, so... More

In a group (our was about 16 people), your menu is extremely limited - they gave us just 5-6 choices and it still took over an hour to get our food ... which turned out to be just average at best. After the second time this happened, I voted to go elsewhere.

Really terrific restaurant with excellent largely Italian fare. Chiff-choff particularly good! But so many items on the menu are exceptional. Staff always very friendly and accommodating. A terrifically relaxing and warm restaurant overlooking the golf course. Whether for formal or relaxed dining, for a romantic, family, friends or business event, Barsanti's meets all needs exceptionally well.

A lot of people I know in town have never been to The Root even though they've lived here for years - it is a bit off the beaten path in terms of proximity to other dining options in the Soo but it's well worth the extra 10 minute drive to get there! The Root doesn't have a large dining... More
