A reservation 12:30 Sunday Jan 13.We were seated upstairs. I wasn't told that there was a problem with the lower level not having any heat , until I phoned in to complain that afternoon'. It was so loud we couldn't hear our friends above the noise and we hadn't seen them for a year. The more people they added the louder it got! The food was fine but overall the "ambience" overshadowed the food. Not enjoyable upstairs. Noise level was off the scale!

I would have appreciated having had a phone call about the situation and given a choice to go somewhere else.
We ate quickly as to get out of that noise.. I know our friends from Burlington will not go back to Farmhouse.

A little disappointed that the dinning room was not open for us that night. Also, my husbands dessert was delicious but surely a dessert for his birthday would have been nice if the proprietor would have given that free. Not complaining but just thinking dessert should be offered for birthdays.

Expected more from the mains, it was just meh. The mussels were great. We booked in advance and seated downstairs, didn’t appreciate walk-ins being asked if they would prefer to be seated upstairs or downstairs and we were not given the option...being New Years Eve we didn’t ask. Service was fantastic and fast.

Christmas is a busy time I realize that. However our food was Luke warm and we waited close 30 minutes for it. When I received my food I did not have the mashed potatoes . If I had waited for someone to come by I would have ate alone as my husband was ready to eat.

I booked dinner at The Farmhouse after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. There was 6 of us, we arrived about 15 minutes early,but we were seated right away.The food was delicious, service was excellent and ambience is beautiful. We ordered pulled pork, burgers and beef dip with various sides between us. The prices were good too! Can’t wait to return!

My husband and I got married at The Farmhouse on Halloween 2017 and the entire staff went out of their way to make our wedding an amazing and memorable event. This year on our first anniversary, we reserved a table for dinner and when we walked in, were instantly welcomed by staff with "Happy Anniversary". Sarah and the team were generous and thoughtful and the food, as always, was excellent! This is definitely our favorite spot and we will always spend our anniversary (and other occasions) at The Farmhouse.

We wanted a nice Thanksgiving dinner and the Farmhouse delivered. Had a nice soup and salad followed by brined turkey mashed potatoes, stuffing and veggies the Oreo cheesecake for dessert. Service was prompt and nice. Only a small improvement or suggestion for next year is to bring more gravy or a little gravy boat when serving. Best part no dishes to do..but sadly no leftovers to enjoy the next day.

First time visit for these Albertans. Had a great experience. 3 of the group ordered Benny’s. 2 ordered the dill pickle brined fried chicken one. Only complaint was that there were only 2 not 3 on the plate, was that good! Farmhouse breakfast was more than I could eat. Everything fresh from Feltis farms. Would definitely go back if ever in the area again.

We were stopping in Barrie as a place to stretch it legs while on a road trip. Although the place is easy to spot once you know where it is, the street signage is very confusing on that corner and the parking lot is only accessible via Tiffin St.

It’s a beautiful restaurant and we sat on the upstairs patio for the lovely view. The menu sounded delicious but our meals were really nothing to write home about, however their home grown micro greens salads are YUM.

We had the burger and the avocado chicken club sandwich. Both were meh.

Best part of our visit was the service and atmosphere. Our server Chris was a stand up guy 👍🏼

We always enjoy going to Farmhouse. My only suggestion would be larger tables on the patio. We barely had room for our meals, drinks, etc. But other than that it was great!

This was my 2nd visit to Farmhouse. And while my first visit was very positive this visit was disappointing. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided on the Farmhouse. I ordered the beef dip as I had it before when I was at the Farmhouse for lunch. However, this beef dip was disappointing. Served on a giant, mushy hamburger bun with hardly any beef it was soggy and lack lustre in taste. The fries were also mushy and greasy tasting. My husbands steak was good but the extra $6 charged for a tiny salad served in a small mason jar with soggy croutons was outrageous. I wish I could say something positive about the ambiance but it was loud and difficult to hear. The service was very good but the waitress was having a hard time hearing us and missed a drink order. Overall, the dining experience was mediocre and not worth the inflated meal costs. There are better places to spend your money in Barrie.

I went as a group of 4 for brunch, I had eggs Benedict which was quite delicious and fresh and a whopping 17$(before tax). The price of the dishes and amount of food is the only real problem I had with the restaurant. My friend had the eggs and bacon for breakfast which was barely enough food for a toddler and was 8$. There should be more food for the cost of their dishes - that being said, everything was very tasty and perfectly made.
