- One for your "preferred" list.AkelaDonDined on 9/12/2014This was not our first visit to Aberfoyle Mill, we had been there a couple of times previously. As usual the food and service was excellent. I'm a senior and starting to have difficulties with navigation ... I now use a walker and find stairs, no matter how few to be a major challenge. I was surprised to discover the absence of a ramp at the entrance and had difficulty navigating over the doorstep at the entrance. Fortunately It was not necessary for me to use the restrooms, but I do wonder what challenges that might have presented. Customers in wheel chairs and using scooters would experience major obstacles for their attendance.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Old restaurant food is so soVivianVIPDined on 9/10/2014The resturant seems to have long history and most of the people there are group or old couples Service is kind of slow and all the food is not meet the expectations..Dessert set is just the can of fruits and something I can buy from the supermarketSpecial Features:
- We'll be back!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/7/2014We have passed the Inn many times driving to Guelph and always wanted to stop in.

- The server makes all the differencCambridgeguyDined on 8/8/2014Dave our server ruined my wife's birthday celebration. He was unfriendly and inattentive. The sarcastic comment he mAde when my wife declined alcohol set the tone. He couldn't remember to bring me water, he never did bring a bread basket refill and didn't bother to check to see if our meals were to our liking even once. He have nothing to say to us and didn't bother to wish my wife a happy birthday even though the host assured me that he had been told. We enjoyed our food and the host was very nice to us. What a shame that we cannot recommend. .

- Special occasion dinner2ndchanceDined on 8/1/2014I came out Friday night with a friend knowing the food would be good. I did like everything except for my cut of prime rib. It was 50% fat and rind and extremely chewy. I was very disappointed with this but didn't want to say anything at the time and disappoint my friend. The special coffees at the end of the meal were warm not hot. Service was slow for it not being busy as well. Will come back but not for the prime rib.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- AMAZINGDiningExpertVIPDined on 7/28/2014We have had the occasion to dine here THREE times in the last week, which is a story in itself. The food here is excellent, with nothing left out. A great selection of appetizers, terrific entre choices and a nice dessert list. We had three different waiters, all of whom knew what they were doing. We were welcomed by John, Ron and Peter, and Ron, whom we knew at his old restaurant even remembered the salad I liked and had it specially prepared for me. I can't say enough about this restaurant which was busy on all the nights we were there. I highly recommend it for special occasions of any kind as the staff is well prepared to deal with every kind of event. Make sure to go!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Occassionally,the food is Secondaryfour4dinnerDined on 6/7/2014A special group of 4 of us, take time to go out together, usually 3-4 times a year with money we've saved on a weekly basis, from NOT wasting it on lottery tickets. We collectively agreed, that we hit THE JACKPOT by coming to Aberfoyle Mill. Reservations were quick, and right from the moment we were greeted, and quickly seated in a wonderful anti-room table, we almost immediately began to "visualize" the kind of experience we were about to have, and though we've been to MANY different fine dining locations (new one each time), THIS, by FAR, was the nicest evening we've had out so far. The owner came around several times, the waitress was the kind that EVERYONE wishes for...she was VERY efficient, the FOOD was amazing! :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Perfect eveningOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014We attended the Aberfoyle Mill to celebrate our wedding anniversary, just as celebrated our wedding dinner there. As always, the Mill was most enjoyable; the food was excellent, the ambience perfect and the service was better than any restaurant in recent memory. We even were fortunate to have my special request of a table near the fireplace accomodated. Thank you for a wonderful evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Neighbourhood Gem -- indeed!NewGuelphitesDined on 4/23/2014Reservations? I'm glad we made them ... ahead of time. And that's the only type of reservation I would have for this place and dining experience. Service was prompt and courteous. Two of us selected the Prix Fix menu (lamb chops), our guest chose the farfalle. Tastefully presented and tasteful too. Waiter (Pierre) suggested a French merlot, which complemented the entrees well. That evening there was a fund raiser for AIDS support, which was invitational but not "pushed" -- again, nicely handled!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superb!HarrisonDined on 4/20/2014A special place for special occasions. The food is outstanding be it at lunch, dinner or brunch. The ambience enhances the experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved the Duck ConfitOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/19/2014The owner was friendly and greeted us at the door. I am from Montreal and I find the duck confit among the best that I have tasted. For dessert, I ordered the pecan tart which was absolutely delicious.I would recommend this to a friend.

- Warm, Rustic and Reliable VenueGordieDined on 4/16/2014I don't have the opportunity to go to the Mill often but when I do you can expect a warm welcoming, fine food and consistently good service. The mushroom soup and deerfield greens salad were an excellent beginning, followed by an extremely tender and tasty new york striploin steak. The service was superb, the ambience was warm, intimate and romantic. The wine list was not extensive but included a good selection. Highly recommended.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great service, excellent food!lulucybellDined on 4/13/2014Great service, excellent food! Noise level was loud because of function going on upstairs, lots of kids running across the floor, made it difficult to hear each other while trying to talk; once function ended noise level was good for talking, nice music in the background.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistent reliable qualityCanuckDined on 4/6/2014Twice a year I visit and the consistency is amazing. Even the waiter has been there for years. The restaurant is in a old mill that still has working parts. Very nice atmosphere. But the food is the main event.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
