An very enjoyable dinner with friends. We drove from Orilila. Well worth the drive! Loved the atmosphere, the service, and the food. Wish there had been a spot for before dinner drinks and a more formal area on the deck for coffee and dessert. The menu provided excellent variety and portion sizes were satisfactory for all. We would definitely return when in the area. Go try it out. You won't regret it.

Excellent spot for a quiet escape. Rooms are appointed immaculately and spacious. The only recommnedations I would have are to maybe offer a boat ride around the islands, provide some tours to local towns and maybe some more in house entertainment. some minor additions to the bathroom (hooks for PJ's and hand towels close to the basins etc .) But other than those trivialities, good spot. Take bug spray though as this is in cottage country.

The food was exquisite. Best salad ever - Lock45, and the seafood risotto was filled with flavour - definitely delicious. My husband had the seafood chowder and he loved it! Our waiter Kyle was attentive and helpful, we did not feel rushed. It was a special anniversary for us and the evening did not disappoint.

It was our first experience at Rawley since it is under the present ownership. Our dining experience was good but we felt that the bread basket should be included with our meals and not an extra. Since we know some of the history of the original building we saw no evidence of that. We were disappointed that the rich history of the resort has been lost. The price of the rooms are too high for us to stay there so we stayed at Christie’s Mill.

We were at the resort to celebrate our anniversary. I made my reservation through open table to have our dinner at the resort restaurant.

On the afternoon before the dinner, I approached one of the servers in the dining room to confirm our reservation and ensure that we were at a table with a good view as requested through open table. This particular staff member was extremely short and curt, stating that they had lots of reservations that evening and that she couldn’t guarantee anything, etc etc. I informed her I had made this reservation days earlier on Open Table and had stated ‘table with nice view’. She continued to make excuses and not listen or try to accommodate my reasonable request. This was a real put-off and definitely not a good first impression!

Despite this, our actual meal experience was great. Thankfully we had a server who was attentive and polite. The server I had interacted with earlier was serving as hostess but never acknowledged us even though she passed our table several times while we were eating. Other servers said hello, etc. Maybe this is an issue with an employee that doesn’t understand customer service!!

The dinner and the breakfast were both very good. My one complaint is that there was no dairy free alternative for my coffee. Lactose intolerance is very well established and to not have any alternative is unacceptable. This resort is somewhat remote so I couldn’t even go somewhere on my own to get this.

Our dining experience was poor compared to last summer. They only offered a Pre-fixed Menu which we didn't care for and it was limited, so we ordered one between us. We ordered drinks before dinner and all the ingredients weren't available. Our appetizer caesar salad was too small and soaked in dressing, it took over 30 minutes between the appetizer and the main course, that was too long since the restaurant was not busy. And the salmon was over-cooked. The dessert we took to go. They really need to pickup their game for this summer season.

We visited with our 4 year old grandchild who loved his pizza dinner! He was regarded as a special guest and our waiter Paul made him feel very welcome and comfortable. Our dinners were excellent and we were very happy with the service and the ambiance. The wine selection was great by the glass and full bottle. We have visited Rawley a number of times both for fine dining and accomodation and would definitely suggest it to friends!

Went for Barrielicious on Saturday night. What a treat. Place was wonderfully busy and full of life. Fabulous three course meal. We started with Caesar salad and it was different and so tasty. Not a creamy dressing and so well plated. We both splurged on the rib steak and it was huge..flavourful, tender and cooked to perfection. we finished off with an off the menu dessert because of a no sugar restriction and without a blink beautiful and tasty berries appeared and made a perfect end to a perfect evening. Alley was our server and she was smart. honest, friendly and attentive made our evening perfect. Such a great evening to celebrate a birthday and share a little escape.

The food was very good, beautifully presented and the place is very nicely decorated. There were a couple of bobbles with the service, although the place wasn't that busy in my mind. Overall a good night out. It was a nice touch having the live piano music playing during dinner, but it seemed he barely started and then went on a break and we left prior to his return what seemed to be almost a hour later. We had picked this evening because of the live music promised.

The service was very pleasant and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. Beautiful location to watch the sun set right on the water. The food was decent but I found the pasta a bit on the dry side and the fish was overcooked, however the sauce on the fish was delicious and rich with flavour. I would definitely give this place another shot in hope's that perhaps something else may be better. Our server was very knowledgable and accomodating and really enjoyed her personality. Warm and friendly. Thanks to the staff for a nice night out.

We love going to this restaurant for a nice lunch or dinner outside in the summer . Outside is preferable for us but inside is very nice too. The service is great and the food is wonderful . Beautiful views of the lake year round and lots of boats to look at during the summer season. We highly recommend this place.

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.
