“Moxie's has it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Went to lunch with a friend and couldn't have enjoyed it more.
The food was wonderful and the staff knowledgeable.
Only downside I guess was price......50 for 2 for lunch?....gotta love gift certificates!

“Great Outdoor Seating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Went there for dinner to meet another couple who were also in cottage country for the week and figured this was about halfway.
What a pleasant surprise. I have been to moxie's in Toronto, and the atmosphere here is much better.
We sat outside on their beautiful patio that is modern and has a glass wall blocking traffic noise.
We had 4 appetizers to share.
Dry ribs, Ahi tuna crisps, calamari and sweet potato fries. All were very good.
Two of us had the best roast beef dip we have had for ages and one had a kale salad and one a lobster special pasta. Everything was delicious.
The service was also top notch, so all in all I would highly recommend this location of Moxies, even though I am not a fan of box chain restaurants.

A great place to meet your friends for a drink and food. Met my friends there for a birthday party and the drinks just kept coming all night. The food was delicious and the wait staff are cool!

“CUSTOMER SERVICE WIN!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

We go to Moxie's a few times per win. The food is quite dependable, so it isn't much of a gamble. What made this last outing worth mentioning was the Customer Service. We went on a busy Saturday night with all the kids in tow. They gave us a premium table and didn't hurry or rush us out the door. The Server was patient and kind to our children. The chef actually came to our table to ensure we liked all our food. When he asked our 3 year old why she didn't eat her pizza, she just said "it's yucky". I explained that she had been a little over-exuberant with the salt shaker. The chef said he'd quickly make her another. We said it wasn't necessary as she was picking at everyone else's plate. Chef insisted she needed more of her own food, so he kept bringing her little servings of many things!

It can be so stressful taking your children out to eat.... especially on a "busy" night for the more popular restaurants. They made us feel like we were the only people there that mattered. I don't ever remember restaurant staff going so above and beyond for our family (in Canada).

WELL DONE!!!!

“Good date night!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

If you are looking for a nicer restaurant in Barrie but dont feel like going to the Keg, Moxies is for you. It is great for dates, family functions, or just to grab some quick food. Nice atmosphere and the price reflects it. Good service and very tasty food.
