My husband and I just love The Crazy Fox - especially love sitting in the loft! Excellent service and wonderful food. The occasional time we've felt the food was lack-luster but it has never stopped us from returning. We also celebrated a surprise party for a family member there and the staff did an incredible job of keeping up the... More

There were two of us. We ate early and were seated upstairs. The waitress was very attentive and helpful with suggestions. We had the tuna appetizer and it was excellent. We enjoyed different means and deserts. Everything was delicious, presented nicely and portions were generous. Would definitely go again.

The food is always excellent here. Favourites are the tuna appetizer, veal scallopini! Drinks take too long to get though. Wine list too pricey and restaurant could use an updating.

Second time at Crazy Fox Bistro. Twice now we had a great meal and time. Starters were delicious and healthy portions. Main course, well done, both in presentation and taste. Will definitely go back.

We've been here 4 or 5 times whenever we stop over in Barrie. Menu has plenty of great options and we always enjoy sharing the Chef's Platter which is a sample of the appetizers. Service has been excellent each time.

Had another great meal at the Crazy Fox, we were out with some friends for a birthday. Beautiful dessert with a gorgeous greeting written in chocolate! My husband teases our server endlessly but she handles it well, she's our favourite needles to say. We love the bang bang shrimp and the new salmon dish is fantastic.

Six of us for dinner....all with different meals. Everything was brought out at the same time, nice and hot, and each one delicious, including rack of lamb, salmon, pasta dishes. The appetizers were great as well, having had the boston pear salad, and bang bang shrimp.

Thank Felix1127
