We had the chicken and waffles and the spicy chicken sandwich. The chicken is done really well. We had Michael (Australian guy) as our server. He was super attentive, friendly and efficient. My friend May and I were really impressed with the service.

We discovered the Barnstormer while visiting family in Barrie. The staff were very welcoming, the craft beer was great and we enjoyed a large veggie pizza. We went away with leftovers. If I was making it, I would use half the mozzarella. Still good though!

Came in for a pint after a long drive from up north. Very nice presentation on the watermelon beer and it wasn’t half bad surprisingly.

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 :)
