The Patio menu offered a good variety of choices and the restaurant also made accommodations for Vegan dishes that were not on the menu. The ribs were outstanding as was the burger. The outdoor setting was quiet, charming and comfortable despite the hot weather on the day we dined. Will definitely be back.

They served you with plastic tray with paper on top. You felt like you are having dinner in Harvey or McDonald’s You don’t feel relax since the waiter keep on asking you what you want to eat or to drink within 2 minutes that you sat down!
I won’t go back there for dinner for sure!

In times of a pandemic it’s difficult to run a restaurant and I fully understand that. I was a bit surprised at the fact that all the portions (salad, mains and sides) were served in plastic baskets with paper liners. However all of the staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful.

Dining was a disappointment as we thought the dining room was open, as on website indicated it was open. Felt it was overpriced and service mediocre.

The staff and patio were excellent the food poor. I used to eat regularly at the Old Mill about 5-8 years ago, however I think the owners must have changed because the food has not been up to par since. The owners seem to be more interested in making money than looking after their day to day guests. They look after the weddings, banqueting and meeting rooms however the restaurant is sadly in need of updating and the food in the restaurant and now the patio has been below par. With COVID there was so much that could have been done on the patio especially with grilling facilities with the minimum of fuss. However, they are definitely not taking advantage of the present situation. Some of the appetizers, the hamburger and the peach melba were the only interesting and good things on the menu.

Brunch was tasty and fresh
The portion size was perfect however the food baskets were separate which made the spacing on the table limited

Wonderful experience out on the patio, they have there special Patio Menu which is very new and not the usual traditional Old Mill brunch menu. New menu items include BBQ meats with dry rub or honey BBQ sauces, we had the Coke Braised and Hickory Smoked Beef Ribs (House Dry Rub), 1/2 rack Braised Maple and Hickory Pork Back Ribs, 14 Hour Smoked Beef Brisket (our favourite) which is mouth watering and it’s so tender it melts in your mouth and very juicy! The sides are Hand Cut Fries, crispy tossed with Parsley, Truffle and Parmesan and Old Fashioned Onion Rings, very crispy Panko battered which was an added touch! The server was attentive and service was prompt and the patio experience was excellent, large enough industrial strength umbrella which covered the entire table to ensure shade all around. Definitely coming back, highly recommended!! Kudos to BBQ team! Bravo

Despite the challenges many restaurants are facing, the Old Mill has done it right. Seating is great and offers gorgeous views of the gardens. The smokehouse food was amazing, everything we ordered was so delicious. I want to thank the staff at Old Mill for being so cautious and making us feel safe to dine with you again while still maintaining the quality of food and drink. We hope to be back soon!

2nd week in a row at Old Mill patio. Week 1 was great - so we brought friends for week two. Second time - what a disappointment! Food was mediocre at best, sides were cold ( when we got them, after asking twice), main course overdone and deserts underwhelming. The service was below par. Overall very disappointing especially since the Old Mill gas been a favourite of ours over the last few years.

What really turned me off was the COVID Surcharge of $3p/p added on the bill without prior knowledge.

Also for those prices they charge for their lunch items I would have expected to have the food served on a "real" plate not in a plastic basket with red checkered paper.

Not the way it used to be pre-covid. Portions are small for $16, any sides are $8 and desserts are all $9.

Lovely pacific ambience in the middle of a metropolis. Food , on the patio, was all BBQ and portions a little small for the price. The ambiance more than made up for that.

We were very disappointed with the food... All 3 of us were unhappy 2 had ribs (very fatty) one the vegetable skewer. One skewer of bland veggies.

The menu did not provide a fish option - Salmon can be done nicely on the bbq. The beef tips, ribs and brisket seemed to be much the same. A nice burger would have fit the patio vibe. A couple of appetizers to go with the very good drinks would have been a good. Would consider going for drinks because the atmosphere was lovely, but not for a meal.

We waited at least 25 minutes before someone acknowledged our presence. Very bad service! The food was cooked way ahead of time, sat in containers & was cold. Not very appatizing!

We were celebrating my sister and hubby’s 60th anniversary. They had their reception at the OM on July 16 1960. Although I included this info in the reservation, it was not acknowledged. I expected more from the O M.
The ambiance was what we expect from the OM, very good. We wished our veggies came with the meal. The fat should have been removed from the roast pork.
Upon exiting a large wedding group about 50 ,were at the landing wIth no distancing or masks. For seniors it felt quite theatening.
Our server Jack was very pleasant and the meal was satisfactory.

Amazing Sunday brunch. Everything was amazing. From eggs to pasta to salmon to all the desserts! Only complaint was my coffee cup was empty alot. It was hard to find someone to fill it. Also, I think that soda should be included in the price.

We enjoy going to the Old Mill on Saturday nights. Great entertainment and ambiance. However, the entertainment menu should have "more options" and they should change it up more often.

The food was incredible. I don't think I've ever been to a buffet as good - every dish was so delicious.

One of the members of my party has a wide range of allergies, and the staff were excellent in supporting it. The chef and sous chef each time time to walk through the buffet with my friend.

Everything on Brunch was definitely very good... To be marked as "Outstanding" I found poor meat selection - missing pork schnitzel (cut to smaller pieces or mini version) would be a superb deal instead of gooey/bony Ox tail... In poultry poor selection - instead complicated breaded turkey baked with cheese and tomato sauce would be a deal make simple grilled/fried drumsticks and tenders seasoned in variety flavor (Garlic, BBQ,Herbs)... Sweets I found as sugar/calories packed "heavy artillery"- It would be amazing found instead that light fruity foamy creamy crispy stuff... The place is entirely amazing and if management improve food selection (mentioned above) this surely make them No.1 in Great Toronto - Outstanding *(five star) place making them Fully booked for 53weeks/year!!!!!! With improved food selection They will deserve that!!!!!
