My husband had the tenderloin steak and it was amazing. I had the cobb salad and was very disappointed . The chicken seemed to be left over and dried out , and the avacado was old and turning black . I would go back but will not order the cobb salad.
Great experience with my 7 month old grandson. The staff were very accommodating
Wonderful food and great service on an amazing patio. A little pricey on some items, but the food was delicious.
Happened to be driving through the city and wanted a place for brunch. Food was decent and service was good. We chose the place given its description of waterfront patio...this is quite a stretch but better than other patios I guess. Portion sizes were decent. Good value. Would encourage management to create a uniform or some guidelines as waitress attire was questionable and not overly professional.
Best Beef Dip I have ever had. Service was excellent. Will come back.
Always a great meal, never disappointed
Lovely patio with a view towards Kempenfelt Bay, but plenty of shade.
The buttermilk fried chicken was perfect! As was the homemade fresh lemonade w/ vodka!
Great food and amazing service. Definitely returning customer and hopefully no storms in the forecast to enjoy the patio
Food was great and so was the service. I do find the wine a bit overpriced.
Food was very tasty
Beer was interesting we tried a raspberry style over all a great night
Great last day of Barrielicious, friend and I had pork tenderloin (amazing), beef dip (I didn’t enjoy as much, it was good, but flavour wasn’t what I expected I guess? Not knocking it though, the quality was still very good), muscles and potato skins for starters (both superb), and mini cheesecakes for dessert. Again, awesome. Light and creamy cheesecake. Will definitely be going back.
Overall very good
The service was over the top
I would recommend to a friend because I’ve been before and had way better experiences. We went for Barrie liciois. Our reservation was 8pm, we didn’t get our starter until 8:55. Food 9:30. I understand it was busy but everyone around us got there food and stuff a lot faster. Even our drinks we ordered there was a huge delay.
Our server kept apologizing; I felt bad but we had babysitters and stuff and didn’t expect to be eating for 2.5 hours.
Food was great, unfortunately the delay in service is why I had a bad experience
Also, food portions were bad. Very small for the price.
It was a good experience for my first time there. Felt it was also great value with the Barrielicious menu.
Excellent menu & food was amazing as always. Love the Farmhouse!!!
Nice menu selection. Trout small size, salad had little dressing, no taste. It’s a nice place to go, great location.
A couple of our choices were unavailable. The chairs on the balcony are quite uncomfortable. We will try another night & choose indoor seating for a hopefully more satisfying experience. Not written off yet!
Really great food. Large portion sizes. Great sta#.
Booked Farmhouse during the Barrielious event. First time there. Sat upstairs. Big tree in front
needs trimming to see the lake.
Bruchetta came in a very hot pan with pita bread that I had to make. (expected on a baguette.)
Beef dip..again thought baguette. Got a seed hamburger bun with opague colour beef. Awful!
My husband orders the maple and beer glazed pork loin..it was a porkchop! and our salads were in a
small jar! 3 bites! and the dessert was 2 bites! I thought Barrielious was to help promote business for restaurants but your food was not worth the $100.00!
Also, the restaurant needs some TLC. Will not go back.
The exterior patio and interior very in need of some TLC. Very ho-hum menu with little creativity and quite limited. Not at all what we expected after watching it talked about for many years on city tv. Having said that, the place was very busy so I guess most patrons are very satisfied.
While the service wasn't fully attentive, the food (both in taste and appearance) made up for it. Highly recommend the mussels as an appetizer! Great value during Barrielicious.
The meals were good, I had the beef dip, thin on the meat. dessert was limited as I am lactose intolerant. The cake/berries were poor quality. Cake was dried out
very loud facing the street- seats on patio are horribly uncomfortable metal chairs as is the table. some cushions and a table cloth would go a long way... as would a coat of paint. Has potential to be amazing however seems a bit unkept... food was good.
Went there to celebrate a birthday and the experience was really good. The value for five people was unbelievable, the food was delicious and the service was great. It was a little noisy but all in all a great experience and I would definitely return.
Best place for a perfect steak!
Best value for a steak during Barrielicious ❤
Fantastic food however the noise level on the second floor made conversation very difficult - we left and went somewhere else for coffee so we could talk without shouting. We would go again and try the main floor.
When received menu noticed that there were no explanations on food menu items. Picked on a whim. Ordered their buttermilk chicken appetizer. Was disappointed. 3 small over battered chicken pieces that were burnt on a dry tasteless piece of garlic bread with a small pickle slice on each piece of chicken. Husband ordered the trout with Mac and cheese side as entree. Mac and cheese portion was not even large enough for a child and fish was bland and seasoned poorly. For dessert husband ordered Oreo cheesecake which was a glob of cream cheese mix in small mason jar with an Oreo stuck in and mixed berry topping. I ordered the berry shortcake with “maple syrup whip cream”. The server even made a point of emphasizing the whip cream. When dessert came was a dried out sponge like white cake with berry topping and spray can whip cream, no maple syrup flavour at all.
It was our 34th anniversary, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We sat outside, upstairs overlooking the lake it was beautiful. The food was amazing....the beef tenderloin was the best I’ve had in a long time. We went mid afternoon so we wouldn’t be rushed and could take our time to saviour the whole experience.
To be honest I was disappointed. Table still had poorly wiped glass rings on it. I had the romaine salad and found the serving size incredibly small even for me. Also had the pork loin that while tasty, had a huge amount of fat not trimmed off - about a quarter of it was fat around the outside. The apple slaw with it was great. Had mac'n'cheese side; was dry and flavourless and half a small serving bowl. Husband's salad, he ordered because it said it had onions, had none. His rib steak was perfect ($12 upcharge). Had the berry short cake thing for dessert, cake part was very dry and there just was never going to be enough compote to fix it. Our server never asked if we wanted tea or coffee with it. Yep, very disappointed.
Overall the food was good. The portions were adequate and very tasty. The chocolate dessert was excellent, but the berry shortcake had no taste. The service was also very good.
First time dining at The Farmhouse. Would return, wait staff was very attentive and got our meals out hot and quick.
You can taste the freshness of their ingredients. Always a consistently delicious and quality experience.
My fiancee and I were very disappointed. I had heard so much about this place. The trout was tiny portion and over cooked with no flavor. The plate had no appeal, no grnish, just small over cooked fish with a baked potatoes. Wasnt offered any extra butter for my potatoes. Appetizers good size but didnt enjoy. Dessert was way to small but best taste of the meal. The workers dressed terrible. One girls cloths had runs all in them. The staff looked like they all I hand me downs. Terrible dress code. I wont go back
Good atmosphere, decent food. Great date night spot!
I enjoy my lunch at the Farmhouse ! The food was so yummy and the service was excellent !
Very good server, friendly, helpful. Our party was 4 people who generally had a good experience at the Farmhouse.
I decided to participate in the Barrielicious menu. I was disappointed in the Caesar salad starter, but I think that is my personal preference not to have all dark greens . Also my choice of dessert was the mixed berry shortbread cake and it was dry hard cake- I thought it was awful. I have good memories of the restaurant food on previous visits so that is why I was disappointed this time that my expectations were not met.
Food was great, value was good, service was ok, but noisy as hell. I'm afraid I won't be back. I could not hear my friends speaking to me across the table...
We enjoyed a delicious meal at The Farmhouse on Saturday night. Crispy Trout and Pulled Pork mains were tasty with generous portions. Side salads were crispy and fresh and vegetables were cooked to perfection. A Barrie gem.
The Farmhouse is consistently delicious! We go a cpl times a year. Food is always top quality and wonderful!
Our food was phenomenal and our server Matt was incredible. I definitely recommend The Farmhouse to anyone who wants a delicious meal ar a reasonable price in downtown Barrie!
