It was garbage.I ordered bruschetta and they gave me 4 pieces of garlic bread that was cold and a white small rice container with tomatoes cheese and parsley in it. The most disgusting thing I've ever seen in my life and do not go and eat at Applebees unless you want to waste your money. Food is garbage. The customer service is absolutely appalling! Asked for a pickup for 945 and got told "we close at 10 so be on time" person answering the phone was named Chris, he's the bartender. Choose wisely

Wow! They did it again!

Applebee's Barrie impressed me again! They continue to provide great food, and fantastic service. All the staff and managers are extremely friendly. The food is delicious and priced right. The restaurant is clean, perfect atmosphere to bring your family. Thanks Applebee's, we'll be back!

What a Great Place!!!!!!

What a great place to bring your family. The menu had a great selection for my husband and I, as well as my kids. Our server was fantastic! She payed extra attention to my kids and even asked their names and gave them stickers! They thought it was great. We had a 2 for $25 deal, which was delicious! The manager on duty even came over to say hi to us for no reason. Great job Applebee's. We'll be back!

I take my kids ever 2 weeks. Applebee's is their all time favorite place to eat. I find the the service and food is usually pretty good. I've noticed that the nacho appetizer has been over cooked lately, but the actual meals have been great. Our waitress tonight was less than attentive, but her coworkers made up for it.

SINCE 2008 THIS RESTO HAS HIT BOTTOM. FOOD SERVING SMALL, PRESENTATION VERY POOR. MENU OFTEN CHANGING. STAFF VERY SOMBER, NO SMILES. IMAGINE A $29 rack of ribs with dish of old potatos mased and a tablespoon of cold slaw as "a sajad"

gave it 3 tries and only to have 3 strikes. horrible service - waited forever for anyone to come by and forever for anyone to fill drinks. last time i went in was with 10 people - we all ordered at once. and half of the people got their burgers when the woman came back saying the burgers would be a while. honestly- how is it that you can get 3 burgers out but not another 3 at the same time when its all for hte same table? half of our group finished their food before the other half's food even arrived. always met with disappointment. would NOT recommend it.

This restaurant is just fine to dine in. If you have been in an Applebee's as most of us have, the only thing that changes is the staff. Don't understand why the posters below are so prejudice to a chain establishment and why this site permits personal attacks when the concept of this site is a review of the restaurant. My advice to anyone who travels Ontario and is North of the 45th parallel. Eat at chain restaurants only while in this area. You will be much happier with your meals.

Going down hill!

My husband and I ate at the Applebee's on Bayfield street in Barrie last week... We used to love eating here, but it seems as though the food quality and service have really gone down hill over the past 6 months. Our server was doing her best, but she was clearly over-burdened with too many tables. No manager came by to greet us, even though they USED TO do this all the time. My fajitas were burnt, and my husband's steak sandwich was soggy. The cheese sticks were over cooked and missing most of the cheese. The bathrooms smelled horrible and weren't very clean. Even the edges of the too small table were grimy. Their motto is about it being a neighbourhood place, where you can feel at home, but I really don't feel that way anymore. It seems there have been some changes in management, as I don't recognize any of the faces there anymore... except the GM, who is a total jerk. I would recommend eating elsewhere!

A Very Nice Lunch.

The Penne Rosa was a very tasty dish. The sauce had a mild heat to it that went great with the sweet sausage. It just had a lot of peas! Luckily my dish wasnt affected by the tomato recall (they used canned tomatos). Great meal. Unfortunatly, the other 2 diners' meals were affected by the tomato ban. The Rollups didnt come with the Pico de Gallo. I'd go back.

We have gone here many times so the order above is just an example of one of the many dishes we've had. OK, so this isn't exactly a high end restaurant. I don't expect exceptional service. The wait staff are mostly young people in their late teens to early 20's and yes, some seem utterly bored and full of contempt towards their job, but they do a decent job. I don't remember ever being actually upset at anything a server has done. As long as I get my food, and it's what I ordered, and I am attended to in a friendly manner, I am happy. And that's how it's been when we go there. Regardless of service, the food is something I crave. The menu is varied and they have specials which change often. Some items are better than others. My favourite is the garlicky steak tips with garlicky veggies and garlicky mashed potatoes (can you tell I love garlic?). I have always found the food very tasty, though sometimes (depending on what you order) it is greasy and unhealthy. But that's your choice to pig out or stick to your diet. They had delicious onion wedges in horseradish sauce which I loved enough to look up the recipe online. Unfortunately they have replaced these with onion rings and some other kind of dip. But if filling and delicious food is what you crave in a family friendly atmosphere (though it is often crowded and you have to wait a while, depending what time you go), then this is the place for you!

Sizzling fajitas? NOT! It was like they had boiled the veggies, the chicken had no taste and the rice on the side was drier than a tea biscuit! No kidding! The Trio is NOT worth the money you pay for it. I would not recommend going to this restaurant nor will I EVER be back again. Totally disappointed...all I have to say is that thank goodness I had won a gift certificate to TRY it out, cause if I had to pay...I would have been pretty upset.

I've tried coming here a few times and I always leave disappointed. This visit was definately my last. The service is always terrible, no one comes to check on you and drinks are always left empty. The food is tasteless and small portions compared to other chain restaurants. I find the wait is always long and staff are generally rude. The server we had this time only talked to us when she was trying up-sell and was loud and tacky. I will stop hoping for good service at this restaurant.

Typical Fast Food, One of the last places in Barrie that I would eat again. Although, the ideas seemed a tad innovative for a fast food joint, they were just... off. Although, I have to admit, The service was excellent. Apparently, our food had gotten burnt, and before we even realized that it had been taking longer than usual the manager was out to apologize. She not only took the appetizer off of the bill, but one of the entrees, and the drinks! I was very impressed with the service, although would not return because of the quality of the food. Although, The wings were boneless! I enjoyed that!

Superb food and amazing service. Even though it was really busy the service was quick and efficient and the food was hot and delicious. The food has been great every time ive been there. I would say that Applebees is great, because its got the best garlic cheese toast.

MY bf and I travel quite frequently and like to try new restaurants along our route.The service was awesome...We were greeted at the door and felt at home.Everything was great...but we were not told it was all u can eat ribs....he specifically told the waiter he was hungry...hint (upsizing his steak)....I wonder why he wasnt informed when he placed his order....Maybe the fact the all u can eat was cheaper....I think it is the job of the server to help the customer choose their order...even after we told the waiter when we overheard another table being offered the all u can eat nothing was done...k he went to the kitchen and found out if it was indeed all u can eat,and asked us not to tell anyone he had made the mistake of not mentioning it to anyone...meaning management.....
