Situated beside a creek, with a large dining room built out overlooking the falls, Ancaster Mill is in demand year-round for weddings, family or corporate events and celebrations. Restored to keep its authentic character intact, this is a place where ambience fuses with fine food and great service.
Always a great dining experience.
This is by far the best value for Easter dinner buffet including wine and cocktails/beer. Aside from the value is the beautiful setting and consistency.
Thank you for a lovely family dinner opportunity.
Until next time,
Loved the Easter Brunch. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Really enjoyed the magician who entertained us while we waited for our table.
We have visited the Anbaster Mill many times and will continue to return.
Its location, adjacent to one of Hamilton's many waterfalls, makes it unique. However, the food, drink and service are always excellent and worth the visit.
From arrival to departure it was a wonderful experience . The service was excellent .. the food was excellent .. we were made to feel that we were the only couple there and as requested we enjoyed the ambiance of the waterfall . Thank You
1st time dining here, great service, great meal, will be back
Celebrated two birthdays at brunch this morning and eveything was thoroughly enjoyed! Brunch ended with a cupcake and candle to celebrate the birtjdays...nice touch.
We went for brunch celebrating a special occasion and reserved a table a week ahead. reception and greeting were great but despite specifying in the booking that this is a special occasion and we would like a seating with a water view, we were initially placed in a table facing the wall. Staff were very understanding when I mentioned that we requested this in our reservation and moved us, we were seated in a better area as we initially requested. Waiter was very polite and responding to our needs and showing us where the hot food was. Everything tasted delicious and fresh hot with a large variety of options lunch more than breakfast though. Would prefer having more juice options as there were only 3. The coffee was horrible and decaffeinated or maybe just a hint of caffeine in it and served by the waiter per request. Would prefer having it next to the juice bar as a self serve with a variety of options and flavors. Overall it was an amazing satisfying meal, quite expensive but worth it if you're there for something special.
the setting is so beautiful. we ate in the waterfalls room and enjoyed the freshly prepared meals. all food is locally grown and so beautifully served. kyle was a wonderful server who listened to our requests. we celebrated a birthday and he surprised us with a free dessert. it was delicious. what a lovely time we had. thank you!
Good ambiance and excellent food taste!!
Great food! Everything was delicious. Lots of choice. Will definitely return in the summer.
Staff were polite, attentive and friendly. They were watchful without being overbearing. Always good!
The place is pretty with the waterfall.
Seated quickly and table altered to allow high chair. Enjoyable family reunion!
There was a large party in our small room which made it very difficult to have a conversation. Everything else was perfect
The Ancaster mill is beautiful. We were married here 4 years ago and came to celebrate our anniversary. The service was good and food was great. We are coming back for mother's Day brunch in May with all our family.
Great service. Delish food. Beautiful view. Perfect night out.
Beautiful setting and interior. Staff very welcoming Answered all of our questions re menu. Free pie for my wife’s birthday was a nice touch No singing appreciated. Food was unique and tasty.
Our family has always loved the Ancaster Old Mill. It had been a number of years since our previous visit but they did not disappoint. We attended the Sunday Brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. The food, the staff, the whole place was just wonderful. It brought back many great memories and helped to create some new ones. Not only would I recommend The Ancaster Old Mill Brunch to a friend, we are already making plans to visit again!!
Birthday. Very welcoming staff and amazing food
Long wait to be seated despite having a reservation. Menu was generic with no stand out dishes. Should have a chicken dish always instead of two bland fish options. Pork is incorporated into many dishes so beware if keeping kosher.
Food was very tasty and presented well. view is spectacular.
Nice venue however slow, inattentive service on slow evening. Short menu with limited offerings.
Beautiful location and food is fabulous! The service was gracious and friendly.
Amazing food and service!
Well we came for my birthday dinner we grabbed a plate and sat down I ate 2 pieces of bacon and my wife wasn't feeling well and her anxiety was getting bad from notice so we left before eating more then 2 pieces of bacon and I was still charged 100$ for just being seated and touching a plate
Everything was good. Just took a while to get seated but nice view so not too bad. I’ve been here a couple times, only this time was the service a bit lower than expected. Other than that, it was perfect!
It was a great experience! My only “complaint” was our plates were never cleared when we got back to our table. Need more float staff to assist with this. Changing cutlery would have also been a nice upgrade for the price you pay and kind of expected but it did not happen from our server. Yet the table behind us from another server had this... “class act” service!
Wonderful atmosphere. Fantastic food! Can't wait to eat here again!
The view and ambience is worthwhile as is the food. The prices reflect this and the service level could be stepped up a bit, but overall okay for an out of Toronto restaurant.
We ordered the chef's menu for dinner and it was an absolute treat. So much more than we expected. Amuse bouche followed by 5 spectacular courses each paired with a fantastic wine (even dessert). We came on a Wednesday so the dining room was a little quiet to start but that's how I like it. Great venue for a special occasion, I would reccomend Ancaster Mill to anyone that appreciates great food and excellent value/service.
The waiter gave us a cold face, and didn't bring drinks to us while other guests have a yellow drink when they have sit. The plate collected at a very long time gap.
Beautiful place and the food was really good. Tiffany falls just minutes away in case you want to burn those eaten calories.
Absolutely amazing! everything was fresh and tasted fantastic. Worth every penny!
Lots of variety and very tasty baked goods. Book brunch well in advance as it is usually full booked
Always a great meal and time.
EXCELLENT FOOD, FRESH, HOT AND DELICIOUS. SEATED RIGHT AWAY. NOT RUSHED THROUGH OUR BRUNCH AT ALL. BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF THE FALLS.
We came here for Sunday Brunch and would definitely be returning. Food was fresh and delicious. Service was phenomenal. The view of the waterfall was beautiful. No complaints! If you come for early bird special, it's a great deal. Highly recommended.
Steve was an excellent server. he was friendly and efficient. He readily accommodated our photo requests with a smile and even went outside to help out another group with pictures. he listened carefully to our orders and brought the food accordingly. thank you steve. we look forward to our next visit.
It was the perfect place to celebrate my Mom’s 70th birthday. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the setting was superb.
Excellent meal - great company nice atmosphere . I will definitely come again !
Check in was a bit of a zoo but otherwise was great
