Food was great! Reminded me of breakfast Mom used to make. Comfortable, affordable and the server was awesome. This will be a weekly thing for us.

Very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Food is good and plentiful. Wish the beans could be warmer. My husbands favorite breakfast joint.

Food was mediocre service basic too many tables for one person. Eggs benedict was awful I felt sick after eating half. There are better diner options in Barrie for $5.00 more. Very dirty and worn interior. I would hate to see the kitchen. Cash only....More

So if the eggs Benedict was awful but you say the food was mediocre, then something must have been spectacular to even it out. Thanks for playing

Hard to find a good diner in Ontario that isn't a chain restaurant. Midway is as authentic as you can find. Family run, good sized portions and excellent service.

Pretty good food, generous portions. I really enjoyed the peameal bacon and eggs, with the side of potato/onion fry up. Pop is canned. Good selection of other drinks (including Vitamin Water). Servers were pretty friendly, very quick. Seems like a locals kind of place. The...More

Dude, that's a 4 star review. Just sayin. And a sticky table doesn't really count as disrepair. I've tripped over that heating register maybe twice in 15 years, and we literally have more parking than we could ever use. Glad you liked the food and...More

This place is a tiny old-fashioned diner with staff that treat you like you've been coming for years. Portions are generous and we were pleased that we could order a la carte for the kids instead of figuring out a whole meal for them. It's...More

Midway is located in a not so nice area. The diner looks like it's falling apart, very unappealing. However the portions were large and quite tasty.

The Midway is located one block from Barrie's beautiful waterfront and adjacent to luxury condominiums. The house was built in the 1880's but trust me, it wont be falling apart any time soon. Glad you liked the food though ;)

My husband and I went for breakfast here this morning and it was very good. I had the eggs benedict (with spinach instead of peameal) and he had the midway breakfast. Both meals were served hot and fast. The server was very nice. The restaurant...More

My boyfriend and I went here for breakfast one morning and we were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast is great! And the service was even better. My boyfriend suggests the eggs benedict - but I was in love with their blueberry pancakes :)

Another first time visit. Wow! I am on a roll. My daughter decided that she wanted to try this place out, and there were four of us to eat breakfast. Parking is an issue, and particularly in the winter. Regardless, we parked down the road...More
