"Food was excellent!!!  4 of us went out for dinner from the boat.....Chicken Club, Fish and Chips, Steak and Brie and Galway Fish Tacos were the best ever!  Our waitress was wonderful, but couldn't hear her name....the place was packed (no wonder!) and therefore lots of chatter and noise from a very happy crowd on a Saturday night!  Will definitely return!  And our in-house fish and chips specialist said these were the best he's had!!!"

"This review is intended for the wonderfull server Bailey.
The evening of June 18/2019
The Belcourt birthday party.
Bailey performed miraculously.
It must have been difficult for her to keep up with so many partiers.
Please note: 
Your food was great.
Your rating above does not work as I hoped.
Wanted to give Bailey a 5 star rating but could not.

"All of the food on the menu is excellent. I keep trying new dishes and am never disappointed. Celebrated my 65th birthday June 18 at Donaleighs. Just want to say thank you to all of the staff (particularly our waitress) for their hard work, time and generosity given at my 65th birthday party last night. All of my guests had a great time and understand the rather difficult task our waitress was challenged with. Your estasblished is admired and well liked and I know that many of my guests often dine there, myself included, and we look forward to many more good times at Donaleighs Irish Pub.

"It was my 50th birthday so we decided, my wife and I , and 2 kids to dine in the evening there. The food was FANTASTIC and the knowledge of the menu by the server was extensive and up to date. Its not a location thats going to make a fuss over you on your birthday if thats what you are looking for. However, if you are seeking nice, amiable family atmosphere on a Sunday evening and tasty food and GOOD PORTIONS SIZE you have found the right place in Barrie. And if you like Guinness. wow the draught Guinness must have been the freshest i have tasted in a long time. WELL WORTH a VISIT to Donaleighs."

"My colleagues hosted my retirement party there last night and it was amazing!  Our server, Alex was so friendly and fun and even with a crowd of 35+ she was quick to serve and graciously took a group picture.  The food was superb and the room we had was great for us to mingle and talk!
Thanks for making my retirement party so memorable💜"

"My wife, daughter, and I came in for dinner on Thursday, August 16th. Their 2 orders of lobster mac & cheese did not disappoint (as usual), and my whiskey salmon was delicious. Tyrra, our server was friendly, professional, and attentive (she was diligent about looking into ingredients for me, due to a food allergy). 

Thank you - we will be back!"

"My wife and I had the pleasure of enjoying dinner and drinks in the afternoon , the pub was pleasant and the atmosphere was rather inviting. The staff where not only knowledgeable of both the pints and fare , they were up on al local inquiries I put forth. My wife especially loved the maple croissant desert. We will most definitely return to Donaleighs Irish Public House."

"This is *by far* my favourite place to eat and play in the city of Barrie. If there was a category to rate the food would by *gourmet* pub. The ingredients are fresh and the salads are divine. You *must* try the Warm Mushroom with Asparagus Salad. OMG ...Yum!"

"My wife and I just moved to Barrie from Parry Sound in summer 2013.  During a walk through downtown we stopped in at Donaleigh's to have drink on the patio, that drink turned into a late lunch as we were enticed by the food we saw being served to the other tables. I was blown away how good the burger and fries were along with the excellent and friendly service.  Donaleigh's has become our staple spot for our monthly date nights, and when we have guests visiting from out of town we bring them to Donaleigh's and they love it there, and rave about it for weeks afterwards!"
