I visited Donaleigh's with my husband and 2 other couples for dinner and drinks for the first time in late September. Can I just say the food was amazing. Large portions and delicious. Service was courteous and efficient considering we were there on a Saturday night at the dinner rush. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking... More

We love coming to Donaleighs and bring out-of-town friends along. Everyone is always impressed by the vibe, food and service. Usually very good bands perform on weekends. Great place, best pub in Barrie by far.

They have great food here. I love the spinach dip and nachos. They have different specials and soup of the day. The servers are friendly. I usually do take-out and they are very quick. They sometimes have live music. Great bar and awesome food. Great for a night out for drinks with friends.

Loved the food at this place, it is very small place not a place for family. Great place for a girl's night out. The type of food you can get here is very taste.

Best Place to eat in Down town Barrie. The food is always yummy and the wait staff are friendly. Lunch on the Patio or Dinner and Drinks in the evening. I highly recommend the Steak and Brie sandwich or the mac and cheese.

Have frequented Donaleigh's on many occasions and it still remains my favorite place to eat in Barrie. Excellent extensive well priced menu and all seemingly home cooked. Have never had a bad meal. Great atmosphere and an excellent selection of beers on tap. You have to try it out.
