“Average restaurant with GREAT views!”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

After wandering around downtown Barrie last Sunday afternoon (6 May) we headed straight to the only restaurant that was playing music and seemed really lively..Hooters Restaurant.

This place is relaxed, all pine-wood everywhere, old posters on the wall, comfortable furniture, and of course, the servers...ALL very pretty to look at! The stunning part of this restaurant is that it overlooks the beautiful water of Kempenfelt Bay and park!

On the main floor there are large garage-door style windows that roll right out of the way, and a smaller outside balcony. Upstairs is a larger open air balcony. Both great places to grab a beer and tasty bite on any sunny afternoon!

Only problem I have is they are a bit slow with the first beverage, but after that they are fast! Food's also a "hit and miss" as another reviewer states. Sometimes the food is really good pub-grub, but other times it's mediocre (moderate quality; not good).

I DO recommend you visit Hooters for the experience: ALWAYS lots of fun (especially in a crowd) lively music, GREAT views, low priced COLD beer, and maybe even good food!
Cheers!
Paul

“So inconsistent”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

This place has one of the best locations, right on the shore of Kempenfelt Bay. It has large open windows and an upper and lower patio to take in all the fresh air and views of the bay. The problem is that sometimes the food is great and sometimes it is poor. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason for it, perhaps it depends on who is cooking on that day but it is really disappointing. Really how hard can it be to make wings the same great way every time. Sometimes they taste like they are not fresh, like they have been re-heated, sometimes they show up less than hot, which should never happen. We really like going to various Hooters restaurants around the world and find them normally lots of fun for great wings and a few beers. Too bad you never know which one you'll get when you come to the Barrie location

“Great Location, mediocre wings”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Went hear after a day of paintball for a well deserved pitcher of beer & wings. Girls were friendly as always. The wings however were just okay. The medium ones were great but these other ones were very salty. Plus after finishing half the pitcher we noticed a bug in it so we asked the waitress to get a new one. The manager who looks like he lives in his parent's basement & has a huge ego for being able to boss these cute girls around said he would only give us a quarter pitcher replacement since we had drank half of it already. This slime ball wouldn't even come to our table but set an embarrassed & very apologetic girl back to explain it. We tipped her well as it wasn't her fault. So overall the food was mediocre, service excellent & manager a goof.

“GOOD SERVICE....BAD SURPRISE”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

02-24-2012 Went to Hooters-Barrie Ontario with colleagues after work, ordered food and drinks...everything is fine until i ordered desert : caramel fudge cheesecake.....yeap MOLD on the cake.... let me tell you, it does not finish well a meal. the waitress rushed to hide it and after 10 minutes came back with the manager to tell me with a pat on the shoulder....we're sorry that was the last piece....nothing more... they could have at least offered me a drink on the house to help wash down the bites that i took before dicovering it....well that was the last time at Hooters....NEVER ORDER DESERT WITHOUT TAKING A GOOD LOOK FOR MOLD.
