Enjoyable evening, although disappointed with being seated in a high traffic area. Wait staff seemed to forget us on several occasions, resulting in us having to flag someone down several times. Food was good as always.

Awesome time. They even brought out champagne for my fiancee and I celebrating our 1 year anniversary. Highly recommend - the waterfall and high end lodge-like feeling in the winter is amazing.

The receptionist greeted us with a smile and took our coats. We were led to our table and given a nice place overlooking the waterfall.
We have been to the Ancaster Mill several times and are always pleased with our selection on the menu, I only wish that there would be a little more choice on the luncheon menu, I find it very limited.
Our server was very courteous and explained the menu and answered all our questions.
We will return to the Ancaster Mill again soon.

We were there for the Sunday "Family dinner" - a prix fixe menu, but with vegetarian or vegan options if you need them. The room is lovely, the service is perfect, and the view outstanding. If you're looking for innovative, unusual food, this is not the place. If you're looking for well-prepared pleasant food that pays respect to the seasons and what's available locally, you'll be fine.

I love coming here but this experience was a bit different. The food was not up to par.

Also.. I noticed the floor manager (assuming)was eyeballing tables to see how far along we were. It felt very uncomfortable and annoying as we felt pushed out the door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Brunch! The only issue was that I feel they need at least 2 people on the omelette station & 2 people carving the beef. It was crazy busy & lined up in both these areas.

The food was amazing & we will definitely be going back:)

It was a good experience. Lots of good food. However, we went on Super Bowl Sunday, so instead of a classy meal, we were greeted by servers dressed in football jerseys. That was a little bit disappointing.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Ancaster Mill. The food was great; the servers were always available when we needed them, very friendly and helpful; and our table couldn't have been better being located being immediately adjacent to the falls. Thank you very much for a great evening.

My family and I were celebrating a birthday at the brunch buffet. We loved the desserts, especially the crepe station and chocolate fountain and quality of the desserts. The oysters were a little smaller than we had before, but the crab legs were great. However, the variety of the main dishes were limited. I would give them five stars if there are more main dish options. Overall, service was good and the atmosphere inside and outside are wonderful.

Went for Sunday brunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. Beautiful scenic view from our table. Food selection was fantastic. Lots of options for gluten-free diet. Waiter even brough over a "gluten-free" brownie with white chocolate sauce and a candle for the birthday girl. All in all a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon celebrating a special occasion!

Beautiful setting, fantastic service. Food was fine, but really not memorable. Servings of Bouillabaisse was very small and the broth was weak and disappointing. Given the prices, would have expected more. Have always been happy with brunch, but probably would not go back for dinner.

The service and food was wonderful. It was busy but never felt overwhelming the seating works out very well so you never feel crowded. The staff were all friendly and efficient. The only thing I would recommend is that the hostess who checks you in offers coat check instead of you having to ask for it.

We casually decided to check out the Mill on a Sunday evening a month after moving into the Dundas/Ancaster area.

Pleasantly surprised by the Sunday dinner set menu! The food was delicious, seasonal and well balanced between courses. To top it off the dining room, built as an extension to the exterior of the original building, is cozy and inviting with a beautiful view of the onsite waterfall.

The servers were a delight, both personable and knowledgeable, adding to the overall experience.

Highly recommend!!

Menu is the same for every brunch. Food is freshly made. You will never get your table on arrival in spite of reservation. They will keep you waiting for 10 minutes before taking you to the table. Once at the table, service is good.
