Another fabulous dinner at the Ancaster Mill! Our party of four enjoyed our meals immensely. The burger was delicious and the roasted char was perfectly done. The service (as always) was exceptional and the views are so beautiful. We find everyone at the Mill is so welcoming & attentive. Thank you!

Service was amazing and beautiful location but food quality was incredibly poor given the price. In the past my wife and I enjoyed the food but clearly the quality has gone downhill. It doesn't seem like there is a proper chef in the kitchen.

The food was great, the server was awesome. The only thing I would come comment about is don’t ask if you have any special requests if you are not going to try to fulfil it. It was our wedding anniversary and it was a simple request.

My husband and I visited the Ancaster Mill for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and it was excellent!. The liver pate parfait was the best pate we have ever had. I hope they offer it on the regular dinner menu. My husband had the Lamb saddle and I had the turkey and we loved both. Both so flavourful and tender. Thank you Chef Andrew!
Our waitress, Rebecca was so professional and attentive. She definitely helped to make our evening just perfect. We have already booked our next dinner!

We were very disappointed with our meals. There were 6 of us and no one liked their meal. The salads were under dressed. When I asked for extra dressing we were brought containers that were just oil. My turkey dish was lukewarm, under seasoned, and tough. It also should have been served with a gravy or au jus. Three people in our party chose the lamb entree and it was basically raw. Not rare, raw. One person ordered the vegetarian entree and she said it was OK. The sides for the table were lukewarm.
If we had not been pressed for time we would have sent everything back.
This was an expensive meal. We felt that we had been ripped off.
The last time that we were at this restaurant we were also very disappointed but thought it was a one off. Apparently not. Years ago this used to be a very good restaurant. Not anymore.

Lovely anniversary dinner at the Ancaster Mill. Our table had a beautiful view of the falls. The Sweet potato soup was velvety and creamy, the short rib was tender and delicious. My husband loved the gourmet burger. There were a few wedding parties getting photos done outside, which was fun to glimpse. Beautiful spot for a date night or special occasion!

One of my friends recommended this place for us and four of us went there. The place was amazing, loved the atmosphere, the food was good but unfortunately the service was really poor. I didn’t expect such poor service from such nice place. Our server, he was rude, impatient and everything we asked, the answer was to look in the menu. When we asked another server about the desserts options, he was really helpful, friendly and provided great recommendations to us, but unfortunately not our sever.

I think the our server did not really care much about the service provided because they charge you a set amount of tip anyway. Really disappointed.

This is just a wedding venue. Our table was not near the mill unfortunately and service was slow. Food was good overall, but not great value without any ambiance. Service was not attentive.

It was bad. I think they are running on low staff post COVID. I made a note of celebrating birthday while booking but I had to remind server about it. Also, they offered no special gesture for the occasion. We were served food and left on our own. The service was poor. Long waiting time between one course to another and no one checked for refilling water etc. It was like we were at the mercy of the server to notice if our plates are to be changed or our drinks are to be refilled.

Loved the location and ambience although it was a bit too loud for a fine dine setup.

We had a very nice meal, the food was excellent and the service was quick and friendly and we didn’t feel we were being rushed. I was very pleased to see that the staff were very conscientious about covid protocols and the tables were at a distance from each other. Once again it was a great experience .

The Ancaster Mill is a gem, and a great place to have special events. Wonderful atmosphere. The food was quite good, but I think the price just was too high to justify it, it was not particularly special to be worth it. You are paying for the (wonderful) ambiance and wine list I think. It's a great place to go though when someone else is paying.
