"We hosted a baby shower on a Sunday afternoon in July 2017; the food, service and atmosphere were amazing.  Our server was very friendly and accommodating, and did not rush us at all.  Everyone enjoyed the food, large size portions !  I would definitely recommend doing an event here and will drop in for any meal when I am in the area.   "

"Went for breakfast today, had never been before. The food and service were both fantastic. The salmonbene was heavenly! And one of the best cups of coffee I have found at a restaurant. I think we have found our new go to breakfast place. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked superb."

"My husband and I came and tried this restaurant with Barrilicious! The waitress was friendly and knew lots about the menu. The menu was delicious and reasonably priced. The restaurant was very nice looking for our date night. It was really cold out and with everyone coming in and out I was alittle chilled and my only negative thing I would say about this restaurant is if they could turn the heat up alittle.  We each picked a different appetizer, main and dessert and all were good. We would come back and bring our kids."

"I went to Cottage Canoe on Mother's Day for breakfast. The food was fantastic, and I couldn't have been happier with the service that my family and I received. It was very busy that morning, and the staff did a fantastic job to ensure we were served in a timely manner. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant. I know I will be returning!"

"The burger is the best in Barrie but could be more generous with the fries for the cost.

Hi Leon

"I've eaten at Cottage Canoe for breakfast and lunch many times and have never had anything but great food and service.  I meet friends for coffee, attend retirees lunches on a regular basis and will be going there for dinner soon.  Many of my friends go there often also, mostly for breakfast on Sunday, and it is quite busy. Lots of parking and a cosy, friendly atmosphere.  "

"This is a great restaurant, newly decorated. Nice, clean, reasonably priced and great food. The menu has good variety of sandwiches, entrees, salads and burgers. This was our second visit. I had the burger and it was excellent. The location is not the best, but don't let that fool you, this is a nice family restaurant. Try it and then tell your friends."

"Recommended by my dental hygienist, Cindy. She had lunch here with her Mom. I went for lunch with my Mom too after getting my teeth cleaned. 

A good lunch we had deep fried pickles (which were really great) and one of us had the club sandwich the other a Canoe chicken sandwich. Sandwiches were good. I'd go back for those fried pickles again!

Friendly and pleasant staff, looked after us well."

"We've eaten breakfast here several times and haven't had a bad meal. Service is rather slow, though. Even after ordering it takes a while to get your food. This last visit we were the only ones in the place and it still took too long to get our food."

"My husband and I decided to try Cottage Canoe as it was part of the Barrielicious Festival and we were in Barrie that day. The restaurant was empty when we arrived but a few people came in shortly after. Our waitress was extremely polite and very attentive. We ordered a different combination of the the three course meals offered at $20.00 which was on the Barrielicious menu. My husband enjoys trying new foods and was pleasantly pleased with the delicious combination of tastes of his meal. Unfortunately I was under the weather that day but enjoyed what I was able to eat and took the rest home for my husband to enjoy later. The decor was very much in keeping with the restaurant's name and I could imagine it would be very cozy on a cold winter's night with the fireplace on. We will definitely be back to try something on their regular menu."

"Good food. Kind of quiet. There's a room that can be separated for occasions(seats, maybe 40 people?). We liked our food and service on our two visits that we are considering hosting something here in the future."
