Mitty’s Sports Bar and Grill in Barrie

Mitty’s Sports Bar and Grill is located at 137 Dunlop St., near the Mulcaster and Dunlop intersection. Its prime location near Barrie’s waterfront makes it one of the most popular spots along the city’s main street.

Mitty’s takes pride in its service, friendly atmosphere, and great food. As a sports-themed restaurant, Mitty’s encourages teams of all ages to come before or after a game. They also offer a party room downstairs. Catering services are available for luncheons, meetings, weddings or other occasions.

If you enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of a sports bar, you’ll love Mitty’s. I’ve visited this spot on a number of occasions to chill with friends or grab a bite. The restaurant features 14 HD TV’s, which are always tuned to various sports channels. Mitty’s is the perfect place to enjoy a drink while watching a game or the latest sports competition. On warm summer days the garage doors at the front and back are opened to allow a breeze through the restaurant. If it’s not too busy, seat yourself at the back for a perfect view of Barrie’s beautiful waterfront and Heritage Park.

Mitty’s has specials every day of the week. Their prices are fairly reasonable. The average entrée runs between $10-15. There’s something for everyone on the menu. Mitty’s has all the standard items, plus a few extras. Deep-fried pickles are the staff favourite, offered at $7.49. The menu also lists double-stacked nachos, with the option of adding chicken or beef. Also, you can choose from wraps, burgers, beef dip, or “snake bites” (cream cheese filled jalapeno peppers in batter), or try their kettle chips. A kid’s menu is also available.

During my recent meal at Mitty’s, our server was very professional, patient, and friendly. He didn’t rush the visit and knew when to check in. The only complaint I have is that upon my recent visit and some of my previous ones, the food has not been up to standard in freshness, and sometimes, it’s overdone. Other than that, I have no complaints. The service is great. It’s a very comfortable atmosphere and a great location!

Mitty’s is owned and operated by Michelle Mitton, the former manager of Tiff’s. For more information, visit the website: http://www.mittyssportsbar.com. Parking is available along Lakeshore Mews just behind the restaurant.
