Food and service were good. A little noisy due to a school group staying at the hotel.

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.

We ate at this restaurant as part of a Blue Mountain spa package, but overall it was very disappointing. I ordered the prime rib with Yorkshire pudding but the Yorkshire was extremely dry and the prime rib wasn’t very flavorful. Our server was excellent and accommodating, friendly and attentive. It was quiet because we went in the off-season

We were a party of 8 women. I liked that we had a private section away from the smaller tables. The staff were accommodation and pleasant, very helpful with information and advice on portions, timing etc.
Everyone in the group had good things to say about the dishes that were ordered. Some of which were, the ceasar's salad, steak, mushroom wellington, trout, bacon wrapped scallops to name a few.

One of the best restaurants for value we've found in Southern Georgian Bay. Kids'menu excellent. Lots of child-friendly choice: Good fish & chips and burger.Overall, food gets an "A". Only disappointment was the steak - chewy and not what I would have expected for restaurant quality. French Onion Soup terrific as was the Mulli....soup of the day. Osso Bucco, while expensive, was one of the best I've ever had. Vegetables. Nice & al dente, not over cooked. Portions generous.

Only complaint is bench seats were too deep to be comfortable. Suggest they add cushions to fill in the space for many patrons comfort. Tables nicely spaced for privacy & the feeling of spaciousness.

Server, Joy, lovely. Service very efficient.

Parking not paved and muddy. Sort of a downer.

All 'n all, highly recommend. Best value & quality in the Blue Mountain area.

Restaurant was a little quiet when we arrived but got more lively as the evening wore on. Layout is in three sections so there is loads of space between tables so excellent for a quiet or intimate dinner. Food was excellent; everything we ordered was well presented and extremely tasty. Portion sizes generous. Menu is the right length which, when you include a couple of specials for the day makes for easy selection. Servers were friendly and on the ball too.

The atmosphere of this restaurant was absolutely lovely and in a central location. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We came here for a bachelorette party dinner and they went above and beyond to make this day special for my friend. Everyone was pleased with their meals and the service. Would definitely come back and recommend!

My wife and I visited the Pottery for her 40th birthday, while we were staying at Blue Mountain Resort. We had an earlier dinner (6:30), and the restaurant was clean, cozy and quiet. They accommodated our seating requests for a window seat so we could watch the mountain without complaint. Food was hot, fast, and delicious. They gave my wife their signature desert free of charge, a philo wrapped cheesecake which was the highlight of the meal, a wonderful dessert that I would gladly pay full price for again. We will certainly return to this restaurant whenever we are in the blue mountain area again.

What a great find! We finally had a chance to check out The Pottery and we're amazed at how cozy it was. I great break from the typical "comfort food" restaurants, it had a charming ambiance that we'll not soon forget. There was a slight blip with our reservation ( a prior group came in much larger than planned) but the staff rolled with it and found us an excellent seat right beside the fireplace. Hope it happens again!

We had selected The Pottery Restaurant for my birthday celebration past weekend based on its good rating and a promising menu.
On arrival, we were greeted and promptly seated in a nice area by the window. The place was pretty empty.
The complimentary red pepper hummus was quite nice. The calamari, however, were borderline undercooked/rubbery, extremely seasoned with black pepper, and covered with light batter that tasted like pure flour and was coming off of them when touched with a fork.
My husband’s prime rib was mediocre and my trout was cold when it made it to the table. I also pointed out to the waitress that my plate was missing a quail egg, which was listed on the menu as part of the entree. Her immediate response was that the egg was ‘mixed in with the batter’. Noticing my blank stare at the dish of simply pan-fried fish (no batter) on a bed of greens with roasted fingerling potatoes and smudges of what I figured should represent ‘tomato bacon jam’ on either side, she promised to double check with the kitchen. This just goes to show the level of staff’s acquaintance with the menu. The waitress later returned to apologize for her mistake and advise that the kitchen ran out of quail eggs and offered to replace it with something else (whiteout giving any substitute suggestions/options). I refused as I could not fathom what can possibly replace a quail egg and, at the same time, slightly stunned. Looking at the menu now, I understand that the egg was the most notable, but not the only item missing from my plate. So were the green beans.
To our great surprise, we were still changed full price for my entree, even though the kitchen was not able to deliver it as advertised. We were utterly disappointed with the experience. No complimentary incentives were offered either.
Needless to say, the restaurant did not meet our expectations and we would not be returning or recommending it to anyone else.
