  • Change did Mom's good. Not sure who the new owners are, but we only went back because we heard the old ones were gone. The biggest difference, these people care, my breakfast was fast, hot, and very good. I went to college up the road, and after being treated poorly repeatedly by the previous owners, I said I would never go back. Well, am I ever glad I did. This is my new favorite breakfast spot in Barrie. Love it. Great job Mom's!!!!

  • Order: Eggs Benny, side of peamel, and oj

  • My husband and I have been regular patrons at Moms for many years in the past. We have recently moved back into the area and thought we would try the new ownership. We thought we would get a nice breakfast like the Corsons served. To our disappointment it was not even close. The eggs were cold and the peameal bacon was a poor excuse for peameal. Sorry we won't be back.

  • We have recently rediscovered this great restaurant. In reading the reveiws online it is apparent that some older reviews are still present. There has been a change of ownership in 2010 which has certainly gone a long way to improving both the food and service at Mom's. I would suggest you take all the older and less than positive comments off this site which are giving afalse impression of this great little gem in Barrie's north east end..

  • Order: chicken parmesan and hot beef sandwich

  • We went to Mom's last night with some friends, and it was fantastic. I had the Surf & Turf and it was delicious, and it was a great price. My husband had the prime rib, he said it was great. We all had the 3 course dinner options so we could try some of great looking dessert, and we were not dissapointed. Our service was great. I would recommend this place, we truly impressed, they are doing a great job over there.

  • Order: red wine, salad bar, surf & turf, butter tart

  • We go to Mom's about once a week, and we always have a fantastic experience. We have noticed that the quality has really improved. The service is always very good, everyone is so nice, and really make you feel welcome. We have started to go more often, they now have 3 course dinners mon-thurs for $19.95. They also started to carry a bigger variety of desserts, the last time we were there, someone was buying a dozen butter tarts to take to work. Great job Mom's, you are fantastic.

  • Order: glass of red wine, salad bar, stuffed chicken, butter tart

  • ok, so after reading a lot of TERRIBLE reviews my party and I almost didn't come to Mom's but we heard through the grapevine there was a new owner, real chefs working there and that the staff actually enjoyed working now.
    So we went for a late lunch/dinner and as soon as we arrived the sweetest lady we have ever met greeted us at the door. She was very polite, very happy to see us and very helpful as my aunt had a wheelchair so we needed a seat that was accessible for her.
    The hostess gave us our menus, and let us know our server would be right over. The server came over, smiling and got us our drinks with 3 minutes of sitting down. One thing we all noticed right away EVERYONE who was there was smiling!!!!
    When the server came back to deliver the drinks, she told us the dinner features, soups and even recommended what she thought we would like! So we listened to her advice and ordered the Prime rib, it was cooked to perfection the way we like it. the meat was so juicy and tender, the potatoes delightful and eventhough none of us are big veggie eaters they were GREAT!
    The food didn't take long to get, maybe a little longer because someone at the table had a chicken parmigiana but it was worth the wait.
    We went to the salad bar, which looked fab all fresh and fully stocked up for a busy night.
    The server brought us refills, cleared our plates almosy immeadiately upon finishing and then she gave us a run down of the desserts.
    We had heard the pies were to die for but didn't literally believe they were.
    Our server recommended the Chef's homemade pecan pie, and we were delighted!!!!
    when we were leaving not only did our server thank us, the hostess did , the chef thanked us through the window and as the new owner walked in she also thanked us for our business.
    We will be back and we will be recommending the NEW mom's to EVERYONE!!!!
    So for anyone who reads the reviews and second guess giving this little gem a try keep in mind, new owners have taken over and they are really spicing things up. They have a kitchen staff that are all trained in their field including a red seal chef, who was cooking when we were there and he is PHENOMENAL! And lovely wait staff who are a pleasure to dine with, we felt right at home. Thank you Mom's staff for a super night out!!!! Like I said we will back!!!!!

  • Order: Prime Rib, Chicken Parmigiana and Pecan Pie

  • My coworkers and I heard about Mom's and thought we would try it for lunch, as is our habit every week. After waiting for the overworked waitress to acknowledge us, we were seated. The menu was pretty simple, nothing to interesting. I ordered the lunch platter, which consisted of a very plain sandwich (my own are much more interesting!) and had to ask for extra ingredients, like cheese, mayo, tomatoes! everything was ala cart. And I think it came with some 'old' tasting coleslaw and it was just a bit underwhelming and very very average. My co-workers had something else, but we cant even remember what it was! It was just a cafeteria lunch, barely worth the trip. And a bit more expensive than what we do pay at the cafeteria.

Hi, Mom's is under new ownership now, you should go back and give it another try. We go a couple of times a week, and are never disappointed. You will notice the difference.

  • We made a reservation for our party of eight on a busy day, and waited in cue when we arrived behind a busy counter. Several minutes later, they told us we were too late (8 minutes) and that our table couldn't be held.

    While rescheduling to come later when they could fit us in, an additional staff member arrived, was rude to us about being late, and seemed to not want us to come back. Her comments were unprovoked as we understood that it was busy and no one in our party had reacted towards any of the staff for our table being given away.

    Again, we're talking about being 8 minutes late, and by the time anyone acknowledged us, we had already been in the restaurant for several minutes.

    It was an extremely unprofessional handling of the situation.

  • Order: We were not given a table.

  • Came in for an anniversary dinner with my family on a Friday. Five of us ordered steak but they only had two steak in stock... and offered a chicken breast in place of steak on three of the surf & turf meals! Received three overcooked scallops the size of a dime on the surf & turf...for get this, $27.95. The chicken parmesan appeared to be cooked twice... dry and hard. I hate to be hard on this place but my parents are attached to it... after all, they call them by name! Sorry for the bad news but don't waste your time here.

Hi, you should give them another try, they are under new ownership now, and everything has really really improved, someone cares about this place now and it shows. They also have a chef now.
