“Best Changes Ever”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We regularly go to Tattingers and we liked it before, but they now have a new chef who we met whose name is Paul and the food presentation, taste and variety were excellent. I had the best Prime Rib Buffet dinner ever.
If you want a relatively quiet atmosphere, all you can eat Prime Rib, and great service (Jennifer is our favourite server) at a reasonable price, this is the place to go.
It is not your "fine" dining atmosphere, but for those of us who eat out a lot, you can save a little and get a lot and enjoy the food.
The selection of desserts and the salads were also a vast improvement over the last few times that we have been there and the alternate meat has recently had an extra flair and taste. I assume that it is because of the new chef Paul making sure the food comes out right. If you go, ask to meet with Paul, he is very open to maintaining customer satisfaction.
It is located in the Holiday Inn in Barrie, but you don't have to stay there to enjoy it! We live in Barrie and make a stop there just to go to restaurant.
If you want a Prime Rib Buffet on a Saturday night and you are in Barrie, this is the place to go!

“Not good.”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Went there for a business lunch. Service was slow and food nowhere near good value. I'd say this is basic hotel food at its most...basic.

Cost of 10.95 adults and 6.95 for kids. Food was below average to average. The french toast was hard :( The eggs were passable. Bacon was okay. Coffee was good. Service was great.
