The Fish Bowl: "very dissapointed..." Barrie Restaurant Tip by bellywart

Barrie Restaurants: 34 reviews and 19 photos

The restaurant looked very nice upon entering, very spacious, and private went downhill from there. Our server was not interested at all, the food, mostly unsatisfactory,(roasted green peppers, zucchini, and yams...yuck!) The kids serving was very small (maybe the proper size according to Canada's food guide, but if you're going to pay a good price for a kid's meal, you'd expect to get more than that). I never got a refill on my water, nor my kids any refills (if available) for their drinks, and my kids never got the desert that they were supposed to get. When I emailed the manager the next day regarding both the food and the service, he was very non-committal, and after a few useless emails back and forth, I declined his most generous offer of providing me with a coupon for 3 kid's deserts.....that we should have received in the first place, which, as I told him, was a big waste of our time. We will NEVER be back.

Favorite Dish: grilled fish-nothing else, unfortunately.......
