Great outside seating with a nice view on the lake. The calamari were delicious!

The restaurant is beautiful and the service was wonderful, however, in this day and age, it would be wonderful if they could offer vegan meal options. We ended up paying almost $140 for salads and sides of vegetables and potatoes. The food was good, but I’d prefer a meal rather than just piecing together side dishes.

Beautiful dining room, but they were way understaffed. The cheery waitress who sat us then proceeded to ignore us. We grabbed the only other staff member and ordered our drinks and dinner right away. It took 35 minutes to get water and our drinks. Even though we ordered before another table-they were waiting for a while too—They received their meal and had almost finished before we got ours. Meanwhile they had called in another waitress who took all the new tables after us—they appeared to have excellent service. The waiter was apologetic but was totally overwhelmed by it all. The food was good, but our night was ruined by that point. There appeared to be no manager on site so we didn’t even bother to ask for a discount. Much better experience at Christie’s Mill!!

I don't know how OneTable sends the reservation requests to the actual restaurant, I say that because when we reserved through OneTable I chose Anniversary as the special occasion and gave special instructions that we wanted a quiet table by the window looking out at the water, but that didn't happen.

Love Rawley Resort - live close by & enjoy coming to the Resort for special occasions‼️ Booked thru “Open Table” (online) for the first time & was disappointed with our seating selection - was seated by the bar area & the noise level & traffic made intimate conversation difficult - I will definitely call & speak to someone directly to make our next reservation. The hostess (the young lady that initially greeted us & showed us to our table) was very unpleasant - never smiled or even tried to engage in any sort of conversation.
The food was outstanding - our waitress was amazing & not withstanding the above we will definitely be back‼️

Rawleys had been recommended to us by friends and as it was our 40th anniversary we thought we would try your restaurant. We got there early and had a drink on the patio - nice view. Then went inside and had dinner. Our server was very attentive and the food was fabulous - even got a special dessert. Would certainly go there again.

We enjoy going to the restaurant for a special treat.
The service and meal has always been first class and the scenery on the river is spectacular.
I can only imagine how spectacular it would be on a warm summer night.
Fantastic!

Dinner was not what I expected. My wife and I choose the white fish and it had no flavour except a real strong fishy smell. The best part of the meal was my salad, my wife’s onion soup again had no flavour. The desert that we choose was the pumpkin pie, I did not find it appitizing at all. Our company ordered the pork which did have a good flavour and the other had the meal ball which was dry and no flavour. Over all very disappointing, however we would consider coming back and trying your regular menu.

We tried out this restaurant during the Flavours of Lake Country event. Appetizers were delicious so we anticipated a great "main". However, the pork tenderloin was very tough - I could hardly cut into mine and it was bland as well. The sauce would have added to the taste but there was barely a drizzle of it. My husband's was fine so he gave me a piece of his which was much more tender. In retrospect, I should have had it sent back but wasn't all that hungry so I didn't bother.
We will try this restaurant again sometime as it's a great venue and the service was fine.

First visit and was specific about the reason we were coming. Phone staff was awesome, serving staff not so much. Obviously didn't read booking, wasn't that busy yet service was lacking, specifically asked about menu but no offer of how it was prepared or chef etc. Waited for bill and had to ask. Food was delicious, kudos to the chef!

We were there for my mother's birthday and had a lovely lunch. Food was excellent. We had the griled calamari, which was delicious. I could have eaten twice as much. My son had a burger, it was huge and the fries were delicious.

Wonderful setting on a summer evening at the water's edge with the sun going down. Service was friendly but uneven. Staff seemed preoccupied with a large group wedding rehearsal dinner. Food ok but not noteworthy. Lots of potential here but overall the experience missed the mark.

On a gals day out, July 4th we had Breakfast at Rawley to start our day. The Eggs Benedict were wonderful and it was a nice relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the view and our meal. I was using a gift card, but unfortunately the server (sorry I've forgotten the name), was inexperienced with processing them. After waiting a bit after she took the car, I asked for the card back & she seemed unsure that she had done the transaction correctly and there wasn't any receipt. I called later to explain the situation and see if someone could check it out for me. Although I didn't hear back, I did have someone drop into Rawley a few days later with my card to have the balance checked out. As it turned out nothing had been taken from my card and they would not take payment for the breakfast. Apparently the Assistant General Manager (Kira) was surprised I wanted to look after it. She said not to worry about paying. Unexpected and appreciated. Thank you Rawley Lodge. The Server was very good, so hopefully this did not cause a problem for her.

1st choice wine not available. First food order, 3 duck 1 salmon....no duck. 2nd food order 3 salmon 1 veggie balls...no salmon. 3rd food order 1 halibut, 1 trout, 1 veggie balls, 1 chicken w/mashed potatoes (came with risotto..later brought potatoes wedges) . We felt so sorry for our waitress who had to keep coming back to us telling us what we ordered was not available. We have never been to dinner with such dissatisfaction! Only good thing was our waitress was very apologetic and pleasant given the circumstances

Our meal at Rawley was good (except my rice for the paella was undercooked but the flavour was acceptable). The issue we had was our server who was new (2nd sitting) to the position. She had not been trained appropriately and I put that on the managerial staff, she did not have someone who was supporting her as she was taking and filling orders. There was an abundance of staff but they all seemed disorganized. There was no-one specifically at the bar to prepare and fill the bar orders and so she was at a loss (where the wine was, what wine we had ordered - we had to tell her three times what wine we had ordered). Also my husband ordered a Caesar salad that never arrived. The manager did come around to the various tables and we told her of our dissatisfaction and she offered complimentary desserts. However, when the bill arrived our server had included the desserts but forgot the pre-dinner drinks. This was surprising as the manager was over at the till assisting our server in creating our bill. I'm afraid I will not give this restaurant any further business.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. Every time the food and service was great. I had the brisket poutine. The meat was to die for.
My wife had the sweat potato fries and deep fried avocado. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal

Stayed at the resort for three days. There aren't too many options in the area so my wife and i ended up having two dinners there and three complementary breakfast i three complementary breakfasts. Each time we went service was very slow and the food was just ok. Additionally there are no vegetarian options on the menu but the cheif will toss something together if you ask. It's unfortunate though that none of these options were actually good choices. Based on the prices, you'd think you were dining in a fancy Toronto restaurant however that is far from the case. I'd avoid.

We have eaten at Rawleys in the past and have been extremely happy. One of our favourite restaurants. However, based on this last experience I couldn't have been more disappointed so this rating is based on this most recent visit. We went with friends for the Barrielicious menu. Base on the restricted three course menu we make our selection. Shorty after placing our order the waiter informed us the soup was no longer available (2 out of 4 had ordered the soup). The two settled on the alternative soup option. We felt based on how empty the restaurant was they sure didn't plan well. We no longer got over that when the waiter returned to say one of the main dishes (2 out of 4 had ordered) was no longer available so the two opted for the alternative. We got over that when the waiter returned to say that the dessert (3 out of 4 ordered) was no longer available. By now we were very unhappy with what had transpired. Kindly enough they offered a gift card we could apply to the meal but we went to the restaurant to enjoy the Rawley experience and good food and that sure didn't happen. It was not about the money at this point. All that said the portions were EXTREMELY small. NOT even close to what the portion size that is usually offered at this restaurant. Out of the four of us I was the only person at the table that actually got what I originally ordered. My husband had To settle for alternative choices for all three courses. Bad planning on the restaurants part. I think it would have been wise when the menu options were no longer available to at lease serve a full size portion.
