Midway Diner

Midway Diner is a funky spot by Barrie’s waterfront to grab a bite in a 50’s style diner. Sticking to the old school vibe, the restaurant takes cash payments only so be prepared.

Customers can expect large portions for great prices, as well as a fun and friendly environment. Midway Diner is located right in the heart of Barrie and has been keeping customers coming back for almost 60 years!

Spynn Restaurant

Spynn is located inside The Barrie Holiday Day Inn but open to everyone. This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with a variety of mixed drinks and cocktails.

Spynn is a fantastic restaurant to keep in mind for special events and holidays because they often have specialty menus or brunch buffets for the occasion.
