Host and wait staff were friendly, humorous, professional and great to deal with. We all (four) thoroughly enjoyed our meals and spoke highly of the restaurant. Have been there before and have no hesitation in returning.

The food and service were both excellent.
I had the prime rib from a local butcher.
My wife had the pan fried arctic char.
The atmosphere is great still contains equipment from when this was an active mill
Will be returning, maybe for the Mystery Dinner Theatre.

Fabulous. The first restaurant I have been to and ate the vegetables first. So good 😊. There is a restaurant in Burlington that says they have the best ceasar salad. I have to say, there is no comparison. You should be proud. Anyone reading this, please do go.

Very nice interior. The decorations give a nice old-school mill vibe. We had a reservation for two and were seated in a raised level overlooking the larger tables. Private while also having a homey atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be returning sooner than later!

Lovely ambiance, recently redecorated, brighter and airier. Rack of lamb and steak were both excellent, done as ordered, veggies were fresh and perfectly cooked to tender-crisp. Excellent service in a beautiful old mill. With a moderately priced bottle of wine and tip, under $200, well recommended.

Warmly greeted and seated, it was obvious that the waitstaff are mature, experienced, attentive, and accomodating. Food was served in a timely not rushed manner. The chowder could have been hotter but was very tasty. The salmon and lamb entrees were delicious.
Even with drinks and desserts, our bill was reasonable👌👍

Service was excellent. Food was good but not as good as expected at the price.
Caesar salad was excellent, striploin was good, ice cut of meat but not incredibly tasty... have had many better steaks and for less than the $38 price tag. Strawberry tartufo was pretty tasty.

Also had 2 glasses of wine, first glass MIGHT have been 4 ounces at best.....second glass was noticeably bigger 5+ounces. Inconsistent pour.

My Wife had the salmon and was not happy with it. She ate it but she was very disappointed in the meal.

A $200 night out including tip, enjoyable evening but probably a better value at the Keg or similar.
That said, service was excellent and staff very friendly.

Food quality/prep was not what we have had on previous visits.

Server 5 stars, kitchen/bar...3 stars.

Aberfoyle mill is our go to place for any special occasion or to meet friends from out of town. We are never disappointed and Caesar salad, as advertised is to die for. Make it there Friday or Saturday for their prime rib. We also held a banquet in the upper level couple of years ago and people still rave about it. And the staff and owners are always friendly and entertaining .

We went for dinner to Aberfoyle Inn, after seeing The Music Man at Stratford. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful day. We were 4 people; all enjoyed the delicious prime rib which was as soft as butter with excellent gravy and veggies. We also enjoyed the ambiance of this lovely country inn. We always go there when we go to the Stratford Festival. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was delicious. We ordered 2 steaks. They were cooked beautifully and the roasted vegetables were delightful. We enjoyed every bite. Wait staff was the right balance of attentive without being intrusive. My only complaint is that I specified it was a special birthday dinner in my reservation and the staff did not even so much as say happy birthday. As dinner for two on a Wednesday is a pretty low-key birthday, some acknowledgement would have been nice.
