The drive to the restaurant is worth it. The ambiance is great, the front foyer into the dining area is like going back in time. The servers are attentive and efficient. The meals we received were delivered timely as ordered and delicious. We were not rushed and not left waiting our server recognized we were there for an evening out and timed the drinks and 3 courses very well. Filly enjoyed by the 6 people at our table.

My husband and I visited for lunch and ordered Chicken Crepes and Brigadoon St Jacques. The sauce for both dishes were so delicious. We strongly recommend those dishes. The services and atmosphere were perfect as usual!

We were disappointed with the food. The Seafood Medley was swimming in sauce almost like a soup. The shrimp appetizer was over cooked.
The service was good, it’s just unfortunate that the food wasn’t up to par

Because the Brigadoon is such a special place, I chose it as the location to celebrate my 80th Birthday. I was not disappointed. Granted, we have to drive 30 minutes to get there from our residence in Nepean, the drive is worth it. The owner, Cheryl Mackie lives above the restaurant and is clearly invested in its success and great ambiance. I hope it remains a worthy destination for many years too come.

Everyone was delighted with the delicious assortment of sandwiches and desserts.
The scones were exceptional. ☺
Service was attentive and they were happy to accommodate our extra requests around the Birthday celebration!
Small comment: I always appreciate a placemat under my plate even paper - otherwise Linen napkins were provided with cutlery.
Overall a real treat and a memorable afternoon at the Brigadoon!

Although the restaurant was very busy service was prompt and food nicely prepared and delicious.

Had the 1/2 liter of house Merlot which is the best deal for noon wine.

As in all better restaurants, we were met at the door and escorted immediately to our table. Atmosphere and ambiance is excellent and conducive to a pleasurable dining experience. Service was excellent and attentive. Menu is extensive and varied with specials on offer each day. Price point is medium + but worth it. Though the restaurant is approx. 45 minutes from Ottawa, it is worth the drive. Brigadoon is indeed a place that is idyllic and maybe even , unaffected by time, but is not remote from reality. It is a real place in Oxford Mills, ON. Beer on tap is recommended.

Continued Excellence

Cheryl (and her staff) are nothing short of amazing. Notwithstanding the challenges faced during the pandemic this property continues to chug along . Cheryl is nothing short of indefatigable..

Out motley group pf four have been at the Brigadoon twice in the last few weeks and (as usual) the meals were simply 'top drawer'. We particularly enjoyed the roast beef dinner that is available on Friday evenings.

What is there not to like about this property? The food, the atmosphere, the service, the antiques that are a constant source of memories and conversation, all combine for a great experience.

Interesting enough Cheryl's granddaughter Stephanie has been working with her grandmother and that being said, the 'apple does not fall far from the tree'

This property is certainly a destination restaurant. It has become our 'go to' place.

The Brigadoon is the place to go, if you want excellent food, and service. Staff are very helpful, and polite. Family run, no music, space between courses, so you can talk to each other, and take your time.

We ordered high tea in advance, and it was excellent—very generous portions, all done in classic English style, with little sandwiches, scones and cream, and tiny sweets. There was great variety and it was terrific to be able to get out with friends to a restaurant with lots of room, high ceilings and COVID-friendly protocols.

The salmon felet was very tasty but the salmon was overcooked. It was mushy rather than flakey. The other three dishes were excellent especialy the liver.
