Good for a quick and hearty breakfast. Nothing special but certainly filling and reasonably-priced..

Ate at Wimpy's for the first time today. Told them I would gladly have a hamburger if I could pay for it Tuesday... That didn't work but I still ordered the Famous Burger. 10 ozs but nothing special. Somewhat dry. Much better places in Barrie for Burgers. My partner had Eggs Bennie which looked delicious and which she orders all... More

We asked for the bill to be separate and my friend on,y got charged for the coffee which is fair since we didn't eat anything.... More

I come here all the time. Diner style menu, without being greasy. It's unusual not to eat soon after you sit down, even when it's so busy people are waiting for a table. It's nice to be remembered and have friendly conversation without the servers hovering or being annoying, the staff here are genuine and will go out of their... More

While I don't expect much in terms of service from a diner, I have eaten at other Wimpy's in the past and had better luck. Our young waitress was pleasant and friendly, but could have been a bit more attentive. She seemed more focused on cleaning silverware. For a 50's diner theme, you would expect those cheesy napkin holders on... More

In Barrie for Canada day weekend and after reading favourable reviews thought we would give Wimpys a try. Good menu and was spoiled for choice. Had the haddock and chips .. It was really tasty! Would definitely return again, excellent value for money and the service was really good.

Went here as a party of four on a Sunday at lunchtime. The place was packed with a line up to get in...a good sign. We didn't have to wait long for a booth though. Staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant was clean as were the washrooms. It's a smallish seating area with retro booths. Lots of parking and... More

I had the chicken Parma dish he had soup and steak special. Waitress was very chatty friendly and attentive. Food was good and sinful, but I've often come here for their famous eggs benny,(never dinner before). Personally, I'd stick with the breakfast.
