Inattentive and slow service. And at one point the server came to our table, gestured towards our drinks, and stood there in silence waiting for us to respond. Literally the first time I have seen this food service strategy. Paid $18 for a flat dry...More

They do wing sauce on the side. Otherwise we both had flights which were good. Fish tacos had zero flavour and the crab cakes were ok. We will for sure go back to try more beers :)

I've been coming to Barnstormer's almost since they first opened and it's been great watching them expand and grow. I've yet to sample a brew of theirs that I did not enjoy, although depending on your tastes, some are more exciting than others. It's great...More

This is a busy restaurant but worth a visit or two. They have several unique pizzas and beer to match.

This place is a hidden gem in barrie. Because of its location it may be overlooked but I assure you once you've been here you will go back. Great for casual dining. Great menu, great beer, great atmosphere...definitely worth trying.
