We were disappointed in the quality of the food. My wife's steak was over done, sent back, and returned but not much better. Wine was good though. It may have been an off night however the server led us to believe that there were enough chefs available to make the experience great.

We don’t eat bacon and they kept doing the order with bacon . The food came an hour late . It’s was not a good experience at all ( the food was good though but my experience was not great ) I think will go back and give them another chance ( the staff was really nice and apologized for the kitchen mistakes) we did not pay for the brunch they got it taken care of .

Dinner at the Pottery restaurant was under par. Very limited dinner menu. Portions were a good size but there was not a lot of flavour to the meals. The Caesar Salad was drenched in dressing that was quite tasteless. My husband ordered the Prime Rib dinner which was a good size but the meat was tough and lacked flavor. Nice restaurant in terms of décor and staff was friendly but we wouldn't return.

I really liked the restaurant. Food was great and the service was good. The portion was huge. But the dessert selection was something that was behind the other courses of the meal.

Great birthday evening spent at The Pottery with good friends. Friendly staff were attentive but were understanding of our desire not to rush through our experience and honoured our request to order our main course a bit later. The hostess even came and sprinkled birthday confetti discreetly at out table. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks at our leisure and all enjoyed our main (prime rib) very much. Was surprised with a beautiful dessert as well! Recommended eatery for special occasions for sure!

Overall the pottery restaurant was great! We were celebrating a birthday and they went above and beyond for us. Food was incredible and the service was outstanding. Updating the interior wouldn’t be a bad idea, such lovely food with only a mediocre atmosphere. Would definitely return for the delicious food and excellent service.

We had the 3 courses for $30 menu offered to overnight guests. This was a better value than the regular menu, although the desserts are shot-glass size and simple. The appetizers and entrees had nice presentations and a higher degree of sophistication. Everything tasted great and was nicely prepared. The restaurant decor isn’t as refined as the food. Our sever was extremely accommodating and helpful.

We have been to the Pottery before, there is always friendly service and good food at reasonable prices. We visited this time for Sunday breakfast/brunch, and you usually have a choice between a la carte or buffet, however there did not appear to be any buffet despite being listed on the menu ($18 - a very good deal). Perhaps it was because we came at 10am, although there was no area visible where it even could have been. Despite having looked forward to the brunch buffet, this was NOT a deal breaker, I ordered the Traditional Farmer's Breakfast instead and was not disappointed. Everyone in my party found that their meals tasted great.

The only negative experience on this visit had more to do with the Blue Mountain Resort than the restaurant itself. This weekend there was a dance competition taking place, as happens every Victoria Day weekend. Unfortunately one of the spaces the resort chose to book them into was a space directly above the Pottery Restaurant. The constant banging of feet jumping and landing on the floor definitely detracted from our overall enjoyment of our meal. Again, not the fault of the restaurant itself, but it made it seem as if Blue Mountain Resort placed a larger priority on the dance competition booking than the enjoyment of their other paying guests.

We came for the Mother’s Day buffet. The service was great and friendly. Sadly, though, the food lacked quality and quantity. There wasn’t very much selection and even though my 4 year old daughter was free - there was nothing that interested her to eat. So we had to take her somewhere afterwards. The food was lack lustre at best. The dessert was even worse. I expected much better based on the reviews.
