This is a great old fashioned diner. The place was very busy which is always a good sign of a great place to eat. My wife and I were pleasantly please with the food quality and taste. The bacon and eggs were very good and tasty and the home fries were very fresh. Service was good, fast and friendly. Will... More

Service was great and the food was fabulous. Some of the best ice cream in the valley, but if you don't get there early they're closed.

This is an old fashioned diner. I could tell it was good because it was full and busy, and there were many motorcycles parked out front. I was not disappointed. The coffee was very good. My daughter had waffles with bacon. I had the "Lumberjack Breakfast" with poached eggs, lots of meat, very fresh homefries etc. The servers were run... More

We stopped here to eat lunch before heading out on a canoe trip. My partner really liked her pea soup and my vegetarian wrap was fresh and conventionally tasty. The kid ordered a grilled cheese and fries and liked it. Generous quantities of fries. Reliably edible unremarkable food. Staff were polite efficient and service was good.

Went in for an early lunch. About 1145am. It took an hour to get our hot dog, hamburger and fries. Food was not bad, but the service is unacceptably slow, especially for it being a slow time.

We passed through Barry's Bay on our way from Ottawa to Haliburton and stopped for lunch at the Dairy and Restaurant. I had a Reuben and my wife had a BLT. Both were very good. There is an ice cream counter in the restaurant, and the selection of flavors was great! We both had "Senior" cones (1 scoop which was... More

We ordered 3 sandwiches. It took over 30 min. I'll never go back. The food was good but if your in a hurry keep on going. Lots of ice cream and the milk shakes are great.

Server: helpful and friendly. meal ( 6 am open!) delicious and nutritious. Locally owned. Barry's Bay is a friendly tidy tourist town. Nearby Ash Grove Inn has clean affordable rooams and also has a very good restaurant.

As often as I've been to Barry's Bay, I don't ever recall eating here before. The menu is basic diner food which is what we were looking for. Service was very good, food was good. Not fine dining but exactly what we were looking for.

We stopped here on our drive from Huntsville to Ottawa for a quick lunch....... And it was quick! We were probably in and out in 30 min......but the food was pretty average. We had the BLT wrap, with no fries, a simple burger with no fries, two soups and one pop. $27.50 was the total before the tip....seems a bit... More
