Food choices at lunch is limited. Prime rib Sandwich was dry. My son didn’t like it. But the cesar salad as always is my fave, the steak and salmon were also good, the arugula salad not really my fave. waiter didn’t offer a refill of iced tea. Just took the glasses while my kids were still eating.

The Aberfoyle Mill has been a favourite restaurant of ours for years -- good food well prepared, relaxed ambiance, friendly staff. During the pandemic, we need to support local businesses more than ever. We can't recommend the Aberfolye Mill highly enough.

Food was excellent, as always. We had originally booked for the patio, but it was a blustery day and the hostess suggested that we go inside where the tables were adequately spaced for safety. Very enjoyable evening!

Went here on a fabulous date last evening, my date had been here many times and it was his suggestion, and I am glad I didn't try to change his mind! We chose to sit inside due to it being very windy, we had a reservation and were sat immediately. We ordered a local beer to start and the soup of the day which was a lovely Butternut Squash soup with delicious bread service. We did feel the main course and wine came rather quick and almost felt rushed initially, but realized it was likely due to the kitchen closing early for Covid regulations. Regardless, the main course was delicious, I could have cut the filet with a butter knife, it was cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. I loved the simplicity of the mashed potatoes, and the rustic carrot was so good. The red wine jus was just enough to balance the dish. We finished the evening with dessert, I had the White Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake and my boyfriend had the Pecan Tart, both were easily shareable and divine. I cannot wait to come back to try some of the other dishes and desserts! I am certain we will be back very soon! Stephanie was our server and she was excellent, especially during these challenging times for the service industry. All the staff were very nice and perfectly present without being overbearing. It was one of my most favorite dining experiences. thank you Aberfoyle Mill

Our experience was awesome, we sat outside and had no problem moving under the tent when it started raining, the servers were all so quick to put up the rain shields so no one got wet. 10/10 will definitely be back!

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary eating an exceptional meal outside on the Aberfoyle Mill's patio. The food was outstanding. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this experience. Eating outside was simply wonderful as we watched dragonflies move over the nearby pond and heard the birds sing.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Fine service. The special of the day--ground sirloin and striploin burger w/ Caesar salad--was splendid: bacon, cheese, onion, tomatoes, pickles. Outside seating was comfortable, lots of space b/w table. I was surprised there weren't more customers on a gorgeous noon. Too bad it's more than an hour drive.

The Aberfoyle Mill lawn patio is such a nice ambiance beside the pond, with twinkling lights and each table having its own umbrella to provide shade. We loved it.
The food was delicious! All 4 of us ordered something different: the pasta, prime rib, chicken and salmon. We all ate every bite. Flavourful and great plating. The menu is more suited to a nice dinner out as opposed to quick light bites, luckily we were celebrating a belated birthday.
We just moved to the area, and tried it for the first time. We will definitely be back!

We had a great dinner out. We dine out often and have decided to make the Mill our go to place for steak, service and ambiance.
It is at par with The Keg for pricing but the food (steak) is better.
Kate was great and a real pro which in today's restaurants is rare. I suggest asking for her section.
Two things stick out for me besides the above and that is the simplicity of the sides.... mashed potatoes, carrots and green beans in plenty. I also liked that there were no TVs. It is nice to NOT be distracted when out with my beautiful wife. I did miss some ambient music though.
I'm happy with my new find.

We are arrived from Pickering for a very special occasion with my 85 year old uncle. The waiter was beyond rude. We are very pleasant and polite people and in no way deserved the staggeringly rude attitude from this man. He became very short with us when we ordered soda/water. It was painfully evident that he was annoyed at our beverage order. We were seating along the wall opposite fireplace, the waiter was tall, brown hair, open boil on the left side of his neck. The food was excellent as always but I will not ever be returning. Very disappointed.

We were celebrating my sons acceptance into universities and we were touring Guelph University . We wanted a special evening with awesome food! We were so pleased with the food, the incredible service, the ambiance, the antiques and the mill that the restaurant is build around. The huge fireplace on the night of a snow storm felt so amazing and just made it to be perfect evening. We will be back as this will be the first place we will make reservations for! Thank you for making it such a positive and memorable night out!

First time at the Mill. I was very impressed. I have many food allergies and they were more then happy to accommodate. There food selection was small which allows them to provides exceptional food. I was able to have every course my partner had which never happens. We will be going back again.

It's been over 30 years since I've been and consider it as one of the few fine dining locations. So my expectations may have been a little high - the service was a little absent-minded and the food a little over-cooked.

It was a pleasant experience. Unfortunately I think our waitress was either new or very nervous. She had to read the daily special from her note pad and I dont think she could read her own writing. So we really did not hear what the specials were till we heard the waitress at the next table tell her guests.
