Went for the Sunday brunch as it was my mother's birthday. Atmosphere is great. Service is good. But I feel for $50 per person that the buffet should be better. The roast beef and shrimp were the only memorable items on the menu. Other food was average at best...lobster was terrible and very tiny. I think they are simply relying on the atmosphere to make this an enjoyable event. No one will ever return cause the food was great!

Excellent service and ambiance in the restaurant. The entertainment was good and reasonably priced. The food is bland and overpriced. The men's bathroom is dirty and rundown.

Despite asking when I made a reservation to limit the strawberries on desserts since I am allergic to them, there was only two deserts out of about 15 that did no have strawberries either in the dessert or used as decoration. I would not recommend the buffet to anyone with any allergies as they don’t listen. Also, there are no sugar free desserts for people trying to either watch their weight or diabetics. Even the fruit tray had strawberries.

Tables were so crammed together you couldn't move. There was no plain salad, salmon or shrimp for the first 20 minutes we arrived. Half the hot bar was closed by 2:30, making for unbearable line-ups. The hot bar food was sub par. They didn't put out any smoked salmon, which has always been there before. Used to love this place with the family on a reqular basis. Won't be back.

Very accommodating staff! We had a wheelchair and a walker with us and everything went very smoothly! Everything was delicious minus the English muffins under the eggs Benedict which we could not saw through.

Been to the Old Mills many times, but first time to their Christmas music night with the swing band. Turns out to be a fun night and you can dance however you like on the floor and enjoy yourself. Food was good value as it always is, however service was lacking in a sense that they weren’t doing a good job at selling you on any of the food items so it’s your pick, but they were relatively attentive. Overall a fun night for us and we would do it again next year!

There is a hidden cover charge of $25 per person. They should mention it when we booked the table. Cover charge should be redeemable for food or drinks, we have had our dinner there, they charged $50 extra on our meals, we paid tips and applicable taxes on top of it. This is unacceptable. The waiter's service was very rude, he told us that it is a normal charge for the show, the show is not free. Then they should sell tickets for the show.

The service is terrible for the price. Though the entertainment was top notch the service was aweful. The whole evening my freind who we were there to celebrate her birthday kept getting stepped on by wait staff walking by our table. It was terribly uncomfortable. Our waiter was 100 years old and was incredible slow. I had to send my food back because he failed to communicate if my meal was gluten free as requested. He also didn't know the difference between vegan and gluten free. After my freind complain to the manager she braught her a glass if champaign. I was taken back by the lack of acknowlegement as to who was paying for this rediculously expensive aweful experience. The manger was disrespectful and instead of offering apoligies for our terrible experience she told my freind it was my fault that we were seated there. I was given 2 aweful choices and took the best view of the stage as she gave me even though I had made reservations in advanced. On our way out she told me to come earlier next time. I reserved for 7pm and we didnt get our order taken until almost 8 pm. I had to ask our waiter if he was still serving our table as he never came by to check on us. That's $400 I'll never get back for a terrible experience.

Have been coming to the Old Mill for a few years now. The service was good and dinner was great. Unfortunately we came on a night when a new DJ was playing and it was horrible. You’d think that reading a crowd would be DJ 101, but alas we were treated to everything from Brenda Lee to Texano music and no two songs were of the same genre.
Too bad because it killed the party and a few of us went home early.

Great experience celebrating my mom's 67th birthday. We brought our 4 month old baby and the staff were very accommodating. We weren't able to bring in our large stroller due to limited space, but we were seated in a spacious area that allowed us to bring our car seat and place it safely on a high chair. Food and service were great!

Old MIll on entertainment nights in the main dining room is dependable. On those nights, however, the aren't as many items on the menu. Hard to understand why. Isn't an entertainment night with a crowd of a couple hundred just like the same dining room on a night without entertainment - and a menu with more variety? However, OM does a good job even if the menu can seem a little boring if you go a few times a year on entertainment evenings. The main dining room is a comfortable place, a step back in time to an era when dining out meant a special place. It stands out today when most restaurants seem to have been designed by the same consultants.

The food was adequate- nothing special. The desserts need work- the pastry was thick and chewy and too thick
It was a shame as the dining room is a lovely venue

Ugh.. Horrible buffet. Food choices were budget, standard frozen food service fair with a few typical higher end buffet items thrown in haphazardly and poorly prepared.

Avoid.

Hot food was either very cold or so overcooked...ie eggs Benedict. Waffles ice cold, sausage/ bacon cold...
Used to be a great character spot, but now just old , musty and tired looking.

We went at 1:00 for brunch alit of the warming food was cold . There were eight of us one with dietary needs and no one seem interested! So she did not get much to eat. Also they ran out of scones and had two more hours of guests ! But when we were leaving the table behind us for tea came and they had scones!!!
Was very disappointed!!

Took my sister for Sunday Brunch for her birthday. We were both pleasantly surprised with the décor, the service, the food and the flow. It was all good. We had a great server who was attentive to our needs. The food was very tasty and what was even better, we did not have to wait to serve ourselves at the buffet. It flowed extremely well. I will certainly return next month to treat my daughter and her husband. Thank you ! Much gratitude.

We enjoy the atmosphere and the fact that we can have a good time without being crowded by too many people. However we found that the DJ did not play great songs and there were times when almost everyone would leave the dance floor. We had the same experience last year. Good ambience, good food, good crowd, not good music.

Food quality was not to write home for. Service was outstanding considering the crowd present. The price were somewhat in line with the food quality and the event, therefore more than acceptable. The DJ was very good trying to please everyone and actually has circulated requests for favourite music that were honoured throughout the evening. Looking forward for next year event.

Your Web page Menu had Veal on it but no Veal on my 81st B'day. Turkey seemed to be Brown not off the Bird White like Xmas. Did not like it at all> Chicken was a 6 out of 10 IMO.
The best part was the Soup. The Salad and the dessert.
Not the 1st time me and others were not Happy with Lunch Buffets.
Stick to Xmas As I have been coming Many years now.

We really appreciated the staff being so tolerant of the children age 3 an 5. The food was amazing, however I did miss a real turkey being carved and homemade cranberry sauce.
I could hear the orchestra playing from old times as I picked up my food and marvelled at how times had changed.
My daughter so enjoyed being able to sit down to an amazing meal with her children even after trips back to the fondue.
Thanks to all the staff for an amazing experience.
Plan to see you next year.

I would not go back for holiday dinner. Huge line ups. Food was okay. Nothing special. Small dessert area. Even a 3rd star hotel in Cuba would be better than this buffet. They crammed in as many people they could. It did not have a fine dining experience... I know it was buffet style, however their brunches are much more classy. Skip this restaurant for its price and go to The Keg instead. Did I mention the line ups for food were super long. Standing there with your plate .... embarrassing really.

Disappointed in the food this year. The turkey was not off the "bird", but turkey roll and this was dry. There were no knives to cut the cheese.

The Thanksgiving buffet was excellent, there was a line, however that was expected. We were seated upstairs, where it was quiet and peaceful. The service was excellent, very attentive servers. Our family truly enjoyed the food, the ambience and the area - we went for a walk to the river and watched the fishermen catch huge fish! We’ll definitely come back again!
