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.

We went there for lunch, I had often wanted to try this restaurant. I was initially impressed by the decor, even though the set up is a little confusing with 3 levels. I ordered the Herbed Fettucini with clams, shrimp, calamari in a garlic white wine sauce. My friend ordered the bang, bang shrimp. After waiting a while our server... More

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.

Food was OK at best...the risotto tasted like under cooked white cheddar macaroni and cheese. Our server was slow, very slow, very unprofessional and actually asked us if we were 'pretty cool people' because she wanted us to move to another table while we were halfway through our main course (which we agreed was pretty off-putting and ruined what was...

After reading rave reviews on the restaurant on Trip Advisor we thought it was time to give the restaurant a try. It started with overcooked rolls that were hard as rocks. The appetizer " Chefs Creation, was promoted for 2 persons ( 18 dollars), but there was two items on platter that were only single pieces each ( shrimp cocktail... More

Crazy Fox is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. Four of us dined there for lunch. The fish and chips were outstanding. Lightly battered fish and crisp fries. The sea food crepe had quite a bit of cheese. The filling was a tasty and plentiful fish combo. The menu is broad enough to satisfy any craving. the wine list... More
