Food and service was great. It is definitely a lively place even for a Thursday night.
Not a place to go if you want a quiet place but if you want to go somewhere where its lively and exciting this is a place to go

I love breweries but this one is kinda pricey- growler is $17 too much and pizza and pasta (second time getting it) wasn’t the best dry and lacking the ingredients - but the pizza dough is the best ! I do love the beer - again too pricey for a spot in a strip mall

Everything from service to food was mostly just ok. We were there for Barrielicious and 2 of our appetizers didn’t come, which we didn’t notice until dessert was served because we were enjoying the company we were with. The main course of different pizzas were very good and for myself, the highlight of the menu. The caramel pretzel for dessert was not good at all. The appetizers may have been missed because there was also a beer flight included on the appy list, which is what a brewery like this is all about after all, so understandable. It seemed as though our server was also the bartender and the place was busy. Our salads (appetizers) were wrapped up so we could take them with. Not a terrible experience and would return, everyone was friendly, just maybe not used to serving the Barrielicious menu.

Loved this place before new management took over. The pizzas used to be awesome. Not sure how you can screw up a margarita pizza, but they did. Sweet sauce and doughy tasting crust. Ew. I guess it’s just beer that they can product. And that might be because management isn’t involved in that. I think they are cutting costs. Horrible food.

I needed a place to take my family out for my birthday dinner and I suggested this place based off my Fiance's recommendation. I had never been here, nor had 4 others in my family. I am incredibly happy I chose this place. The beer, cocktails, and food was all delicious! Our server Ryan, was fantastic! He really made us feel at home. My family and I all got different food, there was a pizza, a burger, a chicken burger, a wrap, fish and chips, and meatloaf dinners. Everything came out together, hot and fresh. Everyone kept talking about how delicious their meals were! I am wondering how I had not been here sooner. We will definitely be back. Plus, I want to try that ridiculously good looking pizza, which my Mother would not share with anyone because it was so tasty!! Thanks Barnstormers for a wonderful birthday dinner, I really could not have asked for anything better. Now my mouth is watering thinking about that beer and food.

I was looking for a new place to go to lunch with friends and I searched for ‘best food in barrie’. After browsing a few places and their menu I chose Barnstormers! Our server Amanda was very knowledgeable of products and as it was our first time she left recommendations and they were excellent! Mushroom burger was OUTSTANDING! I’m now in a kitchen quest to make something similar at home! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HONEY BACON JALAPEÑO FRIES! The beer was delicious and I can’t wait to return for a few pints!

Disappointed in meal.
Pros: Excellent beer! The fries and gravy were good.
Cons: The pizza was very dry and the crust hard; reminded me of pizzas you bake at home that come in a package with a pre-made crust and prepared sauce.
The beet salad was nothing special and you really had to look hard for the goat cheese.
The hamburger was dry and bun was crunchy.
The mac & cheese could have done with more pasta, $17 seemed a bit high for what you got.

Relaxed and comfortable environment, great service from Amanda, food is consistently good with generous portion sizes. Love the co-pilot pizza! We ordered from the Barrielicious menu and were very satisfied....no room for dessert! We'll definitely be back.

Been to many Craft Breweries and this one has all the right beer and food. Loved that your food is made with your beer. We had the fried pickles, pretzel with beer cheese sauce and your chicken pizza. We each enjoyed a flight of beer. Thank you for great service and great beer.

I feel like Barnstormer Brewing Company has gone downhill unfortunately. We had raved about it to our friends who came from out of town, and we were disappointed.
My fries arrived cold and overcooked. The burger buns weren't both burnt. My husband's chicken and waffles portion was quite small for $17.00.
We used to come here for every date night, but we won't be coming anymore. The last time we came, the service was less than stellar. We did not recognize any of the old staff at all! How strange. The new servers were not as friendly, and we almost seemed like an annoyance to them when asking questions. At least this time, our server was friendly.
I am unsure what has transpired here, but it is such a shame.

We had a great time and excellent service at Barnstormer's for my husband's birthday. We had a group of 10 (including kids and a baby) and it was a lovely experience. The beer is fantastic and the food is delicious. It's a really cool and casual atmosphere and you can buy beer to go long after the lcbo/beer store closes. Check it out!

Food was great. Service a bit slow considering only 3 other tables were occupied at the time.
Quite a few beers were "sold out".
The burger was really good

Very nice luncheon today at Barnstormer Brewing in Barrie. Gorgeous afternoon so the roll up door was open, giving a sheltered patio feel. Crab cakes, fish tacos, mushroom brie burger and charcuterie board were all tasty and pleasingly presented. Flight of 4 beers brewed in-house provided a nice sampling. I shall return!

Hi there. Our team from work dined at Barnstormers for lunch for my birthday and it was fabulous. We had previously eaten there before and had a great experience so the choice was easy where we should go. I have had a few things on the menu from previous visits but this was the first time having the fish tacos. I quite enjoyed them. They were cooked perfectly and the beer batter was very tasty and didn't over take the fish. We will definitely be going back!

Beer is overpriced, for bloody sakes, you make it right there on premises! Less than $3 for a can at lcbo, yet $8 for 16oz what gives?

Our first experience tasting Barnstormer beer was on a craft beer cruise in the Toronto harbour in 2014. After learning that the "F-Bomb Blonde" (now called 400 Blonde due to LCBO shelving rules) that we loved was brewed in Barrie, being from Newmarket, my parents took a drive up to see what it was all about! Not only was the atmosphere great, the pizza is so hard to beat, and we love the flavour of the spend crust. Also - the cajun dusted chicken wings are some of the best we've ever had. And, each time, we're always impressed with the friendly staff! They are always so friendly and helpful!
We've been back many times, including for events such as a pottery-making workshop!
We also love that we can take growlers and tall-cans to go, and are obsessed with Terry's Hot Sauce that is also available (and super reasonably priced) to take home as well! We highly recommend this location & experience!

This is a great spot for the local craft beer and the pizza is delicious! I recommend the Crash and Burn pizza but beware - those jalapeños are HOT!!! We also enjoyed the dry wings which were tasty!

I suggest the German inspired wheat beers and my partner loves the IPAs.

Fish tacos never fail, simply cannot find anywhere that compares.
Deep fried pickles in light batter are also perfect.
Friendly service.

We visited Barnstormers from out of town while staying at a resort about 30 minutes away. The food was decent and the beer was good, but our dining experience wasn't the best. The whole meal we felt rushed although it was a Monday evening around 7pm and the place was not full. Our salads and soup arrived in a timely manner but before half of the table was finished eating the appetizers the main course was delivered to the table. We were in and out of the place within an hour and barely had time to finish one beer each. I would recommend re-examining delivery timing to allow for a more relaxed meal by your patrons.

Service was great!! Good size portion of food. The only disappointment was the cold, hard cheese curds served on the poutine. Three orders of it. The waitress offered to replace the orders , but the craving was lost. The other dishes of food were yummy.

The theming was great. We ordered the skirt steak which was good (not overly warm), but fries were excellent. However I was a little put off by the fact that they pile the fries on top of an aioli. I don't like aioli, so I wish they would have mentioned that. I wouldn't have had to waste half of my fries.
