Barnstormer Brewing Company
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.
It was awesome Gave us cheesecake for dessert at no cost to do celebrating my husbands birthday
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.
First dining experience at the barnstormer and it was fabulous. The food was great and quick service. We enjoyed it very much.
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!
Had my sons birthday dinner at Barnstormers and had a great time! Great food and beverages.
Good fun. We were here for trivia night and had a great time.
Great beer and exceptional service as always. Would really love to see a vegan option or two so I could heve more than salad.
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!
Best food I've had in s long time. Everyone loved their meal.
Great food. Good service. Loads of good beer options. Love the fresh ingredients!
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?
Very busy and loud And that was before the live music. However the artist was fantastic when he came on at 8:00. Great vocals 👍🏾
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!
Great meal with fantastic beer!
Alway great! Fantastic food, great beer and wonderful service.
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.
Excellent beer made in house. Great food that great value and fresh. Service is always good. We go a few times per year. Love barnstormer!
Fish tacos never fail, simply cannot find anywhere that compares.
Deep fried pickles in light batter are also perfect.
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.
Great service. Excellent food. The mussels and burgers are wickly great! Polite server with a friendly smile. Lots of craft beer to choose from. Highly recommended.
Repeat visit, it was a nice day, front door was open and our server was great. I was the dd so no beer but the flight at the table was enjoyed.
Was there 2 years ago and was impressed did the brewrey tour and ate and had some beer came back and still just as good service was great beer was excellent and the pizza was outstanding.
We went here twice during Barrielicious and had 3 courses for $25. The food was great, my husband had the burger and I had the pulled pork. The burger was cooked perfectly and the buns were so fresh. The brownie they had for dessert with the beer caramel sauce was to die for. This is a craft brewery and they have many choices of beer available. My husband had a pint of True North Beer and the 400. His favorite so far is the 400. Great atmosphere, I love the upcycling of the plane parts and the bowling alley tables. This is a great bar/restaurant.
Great atmosphere! Beer is fantastic! Food is the best. Always a great time here. Keeps us coming back from GTA
Never been disappointed here. Always a great experience with amazing beer selections and incredible food!
I always enjoy my visit... that's why I'm a regular!!
The setting for Barnstormer is not excellent a strip mall, with no view to speak of. However to their credit that have made the trip worthwhile, with excellent food, great craft beer created on site, good ambience inside and an interesting menu. Helped that our waitress was perfect, just enough - not too much. Also they have a retail store for beer and paraphernalia purchases. We had the Cat III Whiteout pizza. It was absolutely excellent. Don't let "white" throw you off, it is not a yucky cream sauce all over the top, you need to try this "pie", trust me!! We had the flight of home brews, they were all great. We bought some off the 400 (Hwy) and Watermelon ale. We will be back hoping to try other food items, but I can imagine going back to the Cat III it was that good!!
Great food. Cool atmosphere.
Always enjoy going to Barnstormer - it's close to work so we've been going there since the first week it opened - the first class fries & the white out pizza are awesome! This visit was for my birthday & we had great food in a good atmosphere. Will be back again soon!
I'm reluctant to leave a bad review as we are frequent patrons of Barnstormers and with the exception of our last visit have always had a positive experience enjoying the service, food and atmosphere. However, on this visit the customer service left a lot to be desired. We made our reservations two days prior and when we arrived another couple was just ahead of us and although they did not have reservations, they were seated in the general dining room while we were directed to a back booth, facing the kitchen, close to the restrooms and in front of a booth that was being used by staff to cash out. While sitting there waiting to be served we were privy to staff conversing with each other, commenting on the patrons (VERY unprofessional), noisily counting their change and generally discussing their shift with coworkers. There seemed to be NO regard whatsoever for that fact that paying guests were seated within immediate earshot. Food and beverages were excellent as always. We were looking forward to a evening out at one of our favorite local eateries but the experience was definitely overshadowed by the lack of customer service and professionalism displayed by some staff.
