For dinner had spareribs- vegetables were soggy and potatoes were very very salty

Dessert was ice cream that was brought to the table very late as waitress was over worked....ice cream was half melted and I refused it and asked for fresh.

My experiences have previously been very good with Moxies. I think I will take a break and look elsewhere.

We have gone to Moxies for our anniversary for the last three years and on other occasions when in the area. The service is excellent and professional, thank you Jade. The manager always double checks to see is all is well. Food is always served hot unlike other places we frequent. We have no reason not to go back. Go and enjoy.

Service was excellent, Food was Ok, Wine was a bit warm nothing ice couldn't solve.
My steak was overcooked, they offered to cook another one, but I figure it would take too long so just had the over cooked one.

We have gone to Moxie's at this time of year for probably about 4 years now. We like to have a low key celebration and have chosen Moxie's for several reasons.

The service has been outstanding each time we have dined there. We like to have friendly staff who are attentive, but not too clingy. Our servers were exactly what we hoped for.

The food was very enjoyable. We ordered a starter which we felt might not be enough for 4 people, but it was generous.

Food presentation is something I enjoy and look for when dining out. We don't dine out often, but when we do we like it to be better than ordinary. Moxie's is that.

Finally, we always order the same wine and we never regret it. It's a bonus that they re-cork the leftover wine which allows us to take it home safely. Do not hesitate to choose Moxie's for a pleasant dinner experience.

Greeting at the door was pleasant, with all servers and maitre 'd. Although we were early we were taken to a table. We ordered a martini. It arrived without olives. The steak I ordered was rare. I ordered medium rare. We also had a bottle of wine. The server should really be trained to pour when needed. Three visits to the table to ask how are meal was ( yes while we were chewing food) and did not top up our glasses.
I think that when you hire low paid staff, like college or university students, you should at least take the time to train them properly.
Not greatly impressed with the experience.

I didn’t mention anything when we were there as I didn’t want to be a bother to our server (alex) because he was great and also looked fairly busy. But I was very excited to go out for a nice meal and unfortunately didn’t get it ... we ordered the sushi cones which were good, but my fish tacos were not well made (no cabbage on one and a heaping amount on the other) and there was only fish on the taco with no cabbage ? My boyfriends burger was very well done and dry , but only on the one side .. when we looked at it we noticed it just hadn’t been flipped so one side was charred and the other was hardly cooked... love the ambience and again , nothing wrong with the service but I probably won’t return simply because of our food.

We had the ribs and enjoyed them very much. The portions were generous and very tasty.
The only issue was we were brought the wrong dessert but we tried it anyway and it was delicious.
Our waitresss was excellent and brought us anything we asked for right away.
Overall it was an excellent experience and we will definitely be back again

Waited 1h for our food , went tables that arrived after us received their meals fist. When we asked for the bill it took 20 mins for them to bring it to us and then another 10 mins for the machine. Worst part was that the restaurant wasn't even buzy.

The steak was sub-par, tough with lots of grizzle throughout. The twice baked potato was dry and felt like it was prepped hours ahead of time. The service was fine but a little slow.

Moxies is a hip but classy joint for anyone wanting to have a nice date night or a fun drink with the ladies or even a fancy family dinner. Love coming here for all 3 of those reasons! Loved the cauliflower bites.

The service was excellent. We arrived early and were seated right away. Alex was an attentive and accommodating server. We were two adults and two children, in Barrie on an overnight trip from Toronto. We generally greatly enjoy food, and were looking forward to a great meal after a very long day in the snow. The food was not very good. There was nothing particularly wrong with the food; it was just exceptionally boring and lacked much flair or flavour. I was further disappointed as the menu was very expensive, but the cost did not seem to go into flavour quality or portion size. Again, the service was quick and prompt and wonderful, but the food that was delivered quickly and with kindness was bland and overpriced. This would be a fine place to go on someone else's dime when you're looking for predictable and non-stimulating food. We did not stay for dessert, opting instead to hit up a grocery store on the way home for some pie and ice cream and extra snacks as we were still hungry upon leaving the restaurant.

We had our New Years Eve dinner at Moxie’s and we would definitely go back. The food was very good. The options on the special menu for our dietary requirements were great. Service was good although our server seemed a little inexperienced and nervous. She did a fine job. Just lacked a little confidence which will come in time. Being so close to our home, going to Moxie’s was a great choice to have a few drinks and be able to walk home on New Year’s Eve.

Good food and nice and quiet when we were there. Wait staff should have removed finished appetizer plates when done before meal so we didnt have a pile of dishes between us. Could have been attentive and asked if we needed anything... like water or salt and pepper etc. Having worked in the industry we just think a bit more training is required.

Food wasn't great. Steak was not served hot,
was supposed to be brought with seasonal veggies...i got it served with a steamed head of broccoli! Not even seasoned with anything and not even cut. Calamari was soggy, and broccoli cheese soup was not as cheesy as it used to be and has gotten a lot smaller then before. Like a tims soup cup vs a actuall bowl that it used to be served in. Very pricey for the food we got. Service was good. Atmosphere was good. To bad the food lacked.
