Went in for an early lunch. About 1145am. It took an hour to get our hot dog, hamburger and fries. Food was not bad, but the service is unacceptably slow, especially for it being a slow time.

We passed through Barry's Bay on our way from Ottawa to Haliburton and stopped for lunch at the Dairy and Restaurant. I had a Reuben and my wife had a BLT. Both were very good. There is an ice cream counter in the restaurant, and the selection of flavors was great! We both had "Senior" cones (1 scoop which was... More

We ordered 3 sandwiches. It took over 30 min. I'll never go back. The food was good but if your in a hurry keep on going. Lots of ice cream and the milk shakes are great.

Server: helpful and friendly. meal ( 6 am open!) delicious and nutritious. Locally owned. Barry's Bay is a friendly tidy tourist town. Nearby Ash Grove Inn has clean affordable rooams and also has a very good restaurant.

As often as I've been to Barry's Bay, I don't ever recall eating here before. The menu is basic diner food which is what we were looking for. Service was very good, food was good. Not fine dining but exactly what we were looking for.

We visited this no frills restaurant several times during our recent holiday and each time we had simple well-cooked breakfast or lunch with good coffee (and free top-ups!) with friendly efficient service. Popular with the locals. Check the opening times which vary with the season.

We had a quick family breakfast there before heading down the road for a short rafting trip. The service was great, the food plentiful and the price was right. Just a simple diner-style restaurant with no presumption.

Looked busy when we went in and service was good.. My husband had club sandwich which was basically just burnt toast with lettuce and some chicken.. Fries were frozen and some were uncooked.. I had fish and chips.. Not the best.. It's clean enough and the staff are friendly.. Would not go again..
