We were thrilled to learn that the owner has made an effort in being environmentally friendly by eliminating straws and by using take out containers made from a by product of corn.... More

Great food and good portions , great service ... The Guiness gravy is by far the best gravy. Chicken pot pie can feed two.. For the non meat lovers there are many choices of salads breads, fish tacos, and their Nachos are amazing!!

We (2 couples) stopped here for lunch. The pub area is separate from the bar area, with plenty of seats (both tables and booths) We were promptly seated and attended to by our waitress. She was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy. (unfortunately I don't recall her name) The food was fabulous! I ordered the chicken pot pie with... More

Located in downtown Barrie on Dunlop St. The service was good and the food fair to middling. The price was typical pub fare but not overpriced.

Have been here a few times but dropped in after our last skate of the year in the spring... Had food and drinks... All the dishes I have had here have been great as has the service... If you are in the mood for classic Irish pub dishes that are delicious, drop into Donaleigh's.

Its a nice newly renovated pub located in downtown Barrie. The food is very good, I have enjoyed everything i have order from the Guinness gravy poutine, pork tacos to the Donaleighs burger. I do find the drink is a tad overpriced but all in all its a good sport to grab some food and a few pints.

Good pub grub, great pub atmosphere. It's huge, but has a nice back patio. Often quite busy. Try the mac and cheese.

Come here all the time, either for date night or with friends - always the first place we take out-of-town friends. Haven't found a restaurant anywhere with nachos as good as Donnaleigh's. Lobster mac and cheese is also a good choice but can't go wrong with anything on the menu. One of the top places in Barrie.
