Will never return , hands down biggest waste of time . Between the manager and cooks and servers and the wasted owner interupting our very mediocre meal I couldn't even enjoy my date with my girl friend. If only I could give negitive stars I would . The reviews are true and don't waste your time! The lack of experienced staff and management is astounding . I would never try brain surgery with out any brain surgery experience . I'd give it a -2 star rating much like the tempature in this place !!

My wife and I went to fundoozies lastnight for our first night out alone "date night" in a long time. We thought it was great. Lots of fun. Food was good, atmosphere was fun. Service was good.

Worst dining experience we have ever had. Too expensive for the quality of food which was poor. Our waiter took forever to bring anything maybe because he was doing shots with another table. Food was as cold as the restaurant was. Can't see this place lasting. Terrible on all aspects.

$30 for a meal that fails both in quantity and quality. What you serve can barely be called a fondue.

Old vegetables, tiny portions, ridiculous set up with no instructions on how the self-cooking works. Bad service. Not worth your money.

My brother and I took my senior Mom for Mother's Day - and she had a great time. The menu seems confusing but the staff helps you out greatly and the food was awesome! All fondues which we like and everything was made to order at the table - took a while to cook and eat but that is a good thing, there is plenty of food and lots of family time. Was a great adventure and the staff did everything to please my Mom - which is not an easy task some days! Will be back for sure.

This place was great. The entertainment, atmosphere and food was a nice departure from the standard corporate dining experience in restaurants today. It is quite quaint, little noisy and rough around the edges but that's what made it great. Understand fondue before going, it's not a quick menu table! Staff and owner were their for your experience, not the cheque. Will definitely return.

This was an exceptional evening. Our server was friendly and patient. I enjoyed the music and the eclectic and unique. Food was excellent and the self cooking atmosphere provide an opportunity for converstion among your group. A wonderful extra at the end of the evening was one of the staff playing out our evening on his guitar. I can’t wait to go back.

Fun and different date night experience. Restaurant is cramped and server can only reach part of the table so you have to do some of the work also. Good variety of choices.

Dinner was very good. The menu was confusing but the waitress explained it well. The food was plentiful. The fondue was good and we also liked the grill option. We prefer the very thin sliced fondue beef, which isn't offered here. The selection of things to dio in the chocolate was amazing. A fun family outing.

This place is exactly like the name - Fun! If you are up for a unique experience that is fun and different then this is the place for you. Great concept- a fondue place where you can try a bunch of new things- cheese, oil and chocolate fondue. A great mix of food! However, we had some uptight people sitting across from us when we were eating who clearly did not enjoy the place - I have heard the comment - I could just get a steak up the road for cheaper. If that's your idea of a good time- then go there! This is not the place for you if you like traditional, typical food. But if you are willing to be a little patient and adventurous - you will enjoy it!

The place is small and overestimating, but there is so much to look at that it is definitely a conversation starter! The staff is friendly and kind! They were very personable and willing to joke around. It felt more relaxed and not so uptight like other restaurants! I would go back anytime. So many vegan options and adaptability for me with my carnivore friends. I appreciate everything so much. It was incredible to be able to sit down to a nice meal with friends and actually have delicious options to enjoy myself.

The restaurant was small with great atmosphere and the food was top notch! It was our 1st visit and navigating the extensive menu seemed overwhelming. Our server was very helpful, enthusiastic, patient & walked us through the choices, which made it easy to understand. The food was full of flavour & the dining experience was unique & lots of fun. We would recommend to our friends & family. Cooking tables are limited to 4 people but larger groups can sit at multiple tables of 4.

Food was great but so so slow. We had an 8pm reservation and we weren’t seated until almost 9pm. We didn’t event finish out meal until about 11:30pm The food was good. Just wish it didn’t take so long to get to us. Bread for the cheese fondue came out when we are almost done the cheese with the veggies. Would of been nice to have it all at once. Poorly run. The owner was there speaking to all the guests and was so drunk. He did buy us a glass of wine but he was so intoxocated it wasn’t professional. We felt sorry for the 19 year old front end manager. This restaurant has so much potential but so poorly run.

There was a lot of staff stopping at our table ... cook, owner, 2 waitresses and front end manager. All of them stopping at least 2 times or more of everything was okay or if they can improve. It was hard to enjoy our dinner and conversation when being interrupted soo many times. Also the chocolate fondue wasn’t melting and the banarama tasted like pure alcohol, we were told the alcohol would burn off for my children but unfortunately it did not. On the bright side they ran out of shrimp so the upgraded up to lobster and my children did love the hands on experience

Restaurant is cute and full of interesting things my kids loved to look at - however it's tiny and every time the door opened it was freezing. We all wore our jackets for the entire dinner. Service was friendly and knowledgeable however there were long waits in between courses and after being told we only had 2 hours we had some anxiety about this. Our meal took 2.5 hours. Food was ok - the fondue experience is always fun however I didn't find the quality of the food exceptional.

Great atmosphere and food. The service was not good, the server was inexperienced and did not know the answer to any of our questions. The menu is also very confusing.

Great experience and friendly staff. No complaints on food or the interior. Only addition I would recommend would be to have some background music to create more of an ambience. And the other addition I would add is to the tables set up with a set of min cutlery after they are finished being bussed. As stated before though, the food is great and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. Always leave satisfied! :)

Extremely disappointed, made reservation online. Called the next day to increase number of party was told that he didn't think restaurant was open on Christmas Eve but that he would CALL ME BACK. Never heard back from restaurant. Very poor customer service. Why were holiday hours listed that they were open??

Recently had dinner at FunDoozies and overall it was an amazing experience! Loved the cozy atmosphere, the staff was very helpful, and the food was delicious! Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something different in Barrie. Has a lot of options to pick from for your fondues, and you definitely leave there feeling full! Great job FunDoozies, I'll be back for sure!

Had a great evening out with friends. We were celebrating a birthday. The staff was very nice, accommodating and knowledgeable. Any questions we had, they answered. LOVE that we have a fondue and Korean BBQ restaurant in Barrie. You do need reservations to get in as evrrything they do takes time and needs to be organized. Will be back again for sure

We could have used better guidance with our dining experience. It was our first time at a fondue restaurant. Also our second drink order never showed up. The fruit was wilted- looked like it had been cut a long time ago.

Very unorganized, we were trying to find out if our server was "high" or just an "airhead". How things worked were very poorly explained and we had to constantly remind the waitress about our order. I had asked for water and another drink, the water took forever to come and my drink never came. The oil burner was set too high and hot oil splattered on both myself and my date. There were no sauces for dipping our meat into and then after about 20 mins. the dips mysteriously just "showed up", by then we were about 75% finished our meal. Sorry to say, but worst meal experience I've had in a "very, very long time"

Overall, it was a super odd experience. The wait staff in general was pretty nice. Our server was pretty forgetful and told us a few times “she was gapping out.” The menu is super confusing and doesn’t really have any flow or direction. We had to get our server to explain the general concept of ordering, and it was still a little confusing. It is a little pricier but we were pretty jazzed about the whole fondue restaurant idea so we figured we would try it out. It took about 45 minutes for the cheese course to arrive. The vegetables were pretty whatever and small and the bread was all stale, dry and way over seasoned. We asked for the bill after the first course because we were starving and pretty over the whole concept. The decor is also a little too confusing. I get wanting to have a cool fun atmosphere but just had no connection? Idk overall it could have been executed much better and hopefully they can turn things around. As of now, I don’t recommend this place to anyone. Save your money and time and go elsewhere.
