First... don't get there early on a Sunday if you're in a hurry. We showed up at 7:40, they open at 7:00 and the buffet was not nearly ready. No biggy for us, as we were taking a break from a road trip. (Buffet was fully functional by 7:50) We tried several things from the buffet and everything was at... More

Went for dinner during the week. Not busy. Only one waitress but she was very good and was keeping herself busy serving, cleaning and doing cash. Food came fast and hot. No complaints. Would definitely return!

We stopped in Barrie after a 4 hour drive and while planning to grab a drive-thru lunch, we spotted Sunset Grill and figured to give it a try as it stood apart from the usual collection of fast foods - which to be fair - fast food is not what the Sunset Grill is about at all, it simply shares...

I used to come here as a kid with my parents as an obligatory stop. Not sure why, as the food is mediocre at best but it's still the same old place it always was. If you go, go for the breakfast buffet only.

Breakfast at this restaurant used to be a favorite until about the last 5 years. Unfortunately the decor, food & presentation remain stuck in the wrong decade. Time for an update folks or its only a matter of time until the doors close forever.

The friendly staff greeted us when we walked in and showed us to our table right away. We were a group topping off the weekend of visiting friends and family before heading back home. The variety on the breakfast buffet was great. Finally Eggs Benedict on a buffet! Perogies and waffles were hits with the kids along with all the... More

Have not been to this location in about 8 years. The pancakes were thin and taste like they used water for the batter. I remember when they were fluffy and delicious. I use to visit at least once a week for lunch. I make better ones with pre-mix when I go camping. Anyway ... not to complain too much ...... More
