“Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Such a good value for your dollar. My family has come to Barrie 5 years in a row as a getaway and we stop here every time. The staff is great and makes you feel very comfortable. The food is such a large spread that you will always find something you like. The dessert table is massive. The value of this restaurant is phenomenal.

“Great Food and Reasonable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

They have everything you could want to eat and more. The price was reasonable and they do have a senior's discount. The server was nice and friendly. Tables and atmosphere was clean. We have gone here a few times when in the area.

“Consistantly okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We have been here quite a few times, always on Sunday nights on the way home after weekends up north. We just want some quick easy filling food we don't have to think too much about, and this is the place! Always fresh, plentiful and consistantly pretty good. The only thing we ever sometimes notice is the servers and the cleanliness of the tables. Maybe because it is so busy that by the time we get there, it sometimes needs a good clean up, as do the servers. On the plus side, because it is so busy the food is always fresh, hot, no surprises but very good for a buffet. The pot roast is a favorite every time and the mashed potatoes taste real. The fried chicken also is good and the ribs, when fresh are as good as you would get at any specialty rib house. Wouldn't be a first choice for a celebration or special night out but perfect for what we need after a long day.

“Tantalizing Comfort Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Enjoyed an afternoon Sunday Brunch out at the Market Buffet and Grill. The down home tasty meals will keep bringing you back The trays of hot food filled the Buffet and it included a variety of everything from steak off the grill, roast beef, pork roast, leg of ham, turkey, variety of chicken and fish dishes, and mashed potatoes with gravy and trimmings on the side.
Jambalaya, ratatouille, pot roast, shepherds pie, meat loaf and an assortment of pastas with sauces were also in the Buffet. Beef tacos, soups, salads and a fruit selection also added delicious choices to the Buffet. The Sweet Table topped the Buffet off finishing with desserts of bread puddings, fruit crisps, assortments of cakes, cookies, squares, tarts and whipping cream. Everyone loved the ice cream treats and cones.
This Buffet is a 'taste of home' when you want to have a night out to relax and enjoy it with everyone.

“lunch selections gone early”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

We went to the restaurant today as we have gone several times in the past with hockey tournaments. We arrived at 1:20 PM and asked when lunch was over and were told it tan to 2:30 PM. We paid the full price for 3 persons and soon noticed several of the staff appeared to be cleaning up as though it was now 2:30 PM. The hamburger sliders were gone- it said cooked to order by the empty container and no one appeared to cook any. The ham was all gone and when my wife inquired she was told if its gone its gone. The pasta area was also unmanned and no one approached us at that station. Our grandson was looking for grated cheese for his salad it was also all gone. My wife approached the cashier to see if there was replacement food coming and I informed with waitress of the situation when she asked if everything was OK.
We left shortly after very disappointed that the lunch buffet advertised to 2:20 PM actually starts to close down over an hour early. Perhaps the cashier should let customers know the buffet is now reduced and offer a reduced rate. As we left 4 more people arrived and there was no mention to them that several item are in fact no longer available. We live about 2 hours away and this spot >> used to be << a place we looked forward to for meals.
