Beautiful surroundings, great staff, had to wait quite a while for our meals, likely due to the typucal staff shortages that are everywhere these days. Other than that, the piano player provided an excellent ambience for the evening. Not aware of any other restaurant/resort of this caliber in the local area. Will surely be back !

After arriving at the restaurant we had to wait 45 minutes for starters. My wife choice was uneatable. After waiting another 15 minutes where the waiter never cam back to check on us we left, cancelling our mains.

Our dinner was a last minute plan so are thankful we got a reservation and made so easy on open table . The restaurant was busy but they told us up front there might be a delay but we are on vacation so in no rush and the view is amazing on the patio. We both had the menu special which was delicious I had the vegetarian pesto linguine and would go back just to have it again. Would love to see it on the regular menu. We have been often and are never disappointed. We will be back and glad to see businesses getting back to normal again

Rough start, as it took awhile to be seated, had to go find someone but after that it was great experience. Loved the food, an extra duck wing would have been great 😉

Beautiful location and restaurant, both inside and out—we love the view.

The food is very good as well but the portions are very small and expensive. The menu is very limited as well.

We live near Rawley and it is fabulous every time we eat here. From the food to service to the location. We had the tuna salad, calamari and pickerel. The food is absolutely amazing. We finished with donuts you dip in sauce. We were completed full and it was so nice to get out the house. We would highly recommend dining here and you won't be disappointed.

Terrific staff. Very attentive. The food was overall delicious, some plates better than others but it comes down to preference. We enjoyed the atmosphere & the “socially” distanced tables during this time.

As always, dinner was amazing. The deconstructed Caesar salad is okay, I would still pick a regular over this however. The linguini was phenomenal and I highly recommend it! Wine selection by the glass is average at best, one option per white/red variety (i.e., Riesling, sauv blanc, etc.). I can't remember our servers name, but she was very kind, attentive, and helpful.
We will of course be returning for the menu change in the Winter.

We booked Rawley's for a birthday dinner. On arrival we were shown to a high table in the piano bar...told tables in the dining room were reserved. After some persuasion, we were seated in the dining room. (of the three tables available in the dining room when we were seated, two were still available when we left)

Our server (his first night) showed a complete lack of training in opening a bottle of wine...a 2018 Mondavi Cabernet we regularly buy for just under $20... it was $85 which I feel is a bit high mark-up.

I requested our meal be split by the kitchen...it came on one plate with a small side bread plate for my wife.

Brunch was a little disappointing. While our server was amazing and ambiance great, the food was below par. I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for better quality or attention. My omelet was dry, and I wasn't able to finish. Scrambled eggs were also slightly below average.

Great service, tasty food, good Autumn Fall Colours deal. Ambiance and everything were positive. Only downside was speed of food from the kitchen. As much as most of the food was worth the wait, it was a little concerning during the time when the table was simply waiting for the food to be prepared.

We love going to Rawley for dinner and drinks. We live on the lake and are grateful to have a place to boat to. It is fabulous that the lodge accepts locals to enjoy an evening out.
We attended your restaurant about a dozen times this summer. But on this last visit before moving home for the winter we found everything had gone downhill. We ordered several different items from the menu only to be told they were sold out of them, or they served the last to another patron.
If you are in the midst of “the taste of Fall”, you should have enough food to serve your clientele. This left an unsatisfactory feeling to a place we love to attend.
Also on this visit our Server forgot our table in several occasions, neglecting to bring things we ordered. We had to repeatedly ask for what we had ordered.
I hope on our next visit we find ourselves experiencing a much finer evening.’

The food was absolutely amazing. My husband and I went for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, October 11th. It was a three course meal for $60. We both had the beet, feta, pumpkins seeds and greens salad. My husband had turduckin and I had the pickerel. Both main courses were so tasty and delicious. We both had pumpkin, maple spice or something cake. It was also amazing. I had to take half of my cake home because I was so full. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. A very relaxing, different Thanksgiving that we truly enjoyed. Lori

First of all, one of the servers earlier had told me we didn’t have to do Prix fix menu and could order separately because my boyfriend doesn’t care for apps or dessert. When we came back for dinner our server wouldn’t hear of it when I mentioned it to her and said it was fixed menu. There were only 9 tables (7 of the tables were just couples) and 3 servers which was a pretty good ratio for service so we thought the service time would be good but it wasn’t . She sat us at the smallest random table by a wall that felt super uncomfortable although most of the restaurant was empty.we could’ve been seated anywhere. I asked if we could please move and she gave me attitude and said ‘well the other table would have to be set.’ Then came back and said ‘oh let me get you guys waters after 20 mins. She Took our drinks menu and didn’t even ask us if we wanted a drink the entire time we were there. The three couples who came after us got served all courses and left well before us because they had a different server. The food itself was a 2 hour disaster. The calamari came cold and we didn’t say anything. My steak that I had asked for to be medium rare came over done so she took it back and brought me another one and said ‘ not sure what’s going on with the chef today he seems to not be getting the medium rare right - so obviously it had happened multiple times, my second steak was even more over cooked than the first time and she came back once to check up on us and I said I’m hungry I’m just going to eat it I guess and I ended up taking maybe 4 bites then didn’t even finish my meal. She just laughed and said I’m so sorry. We asked for our dessert to go at this point and our bill. Considering the amount I ate and the fact that my food was absolute garbage, you would’ve thought she would’ve done some about my bill but nope nothing . On top of that I asked another person at front desk who the manager of the dining area is and found out that our server Diane was the manager !

A wonderful.
The only criticism(constructive) is
>The waitress was excellent but it would of been nice to have cutlery replaced with each course rather than used utensils left to be used again.
A distraction from an otherwise relaxed presentation.
>We were not offered coffee following dessert nor a liquor should we had wished one.
We were somewhat ready to depart but felt a bit of "the bums rush"
:)
Glad we attended and it was a memorable evening.
We are boaters on Georgian Bay and have enjoyed mooring at Rawley as well as staying as guests in the Lodge in the off seasons.
