Painter’s Hall, Barrie, ON

North of the five points in downtown Barrie, is a quaint little restaurant called Painter’s Hall. It has a discreet doorway but when you enter, you are welcomed with a hallway showcasing paintings by local artists. We were greeted by our waiter who made hubby and my first experience wonderful. He was very knowledgeable, attentive and made wonderful recommendations. The restaurant has a very warm and chic atmosphere. A wonderful place for any special occasion or a weekend date. The food was so delicious, I love the use of  fresh local items in each of its unique dishes.

We had heard so many good things about Painter’s Hall and it definitely lived up to its hype!
