Diner Reviews
  • "We went on our cottage trip, both my parents loved it. Food was great, expect we would like to see more variety. ie: have some fruits available for our buffet lunch would make it better =)"

  • "We had a very nice dinner experience. All three couples enjoyed their meals. We had hoped to be able to arrive by boat, but the weather didn't cooperate. It is so nice, to be able to take company for a boat ride and then stop for dinner. Next time!"

  • "Great brunch - lots of variety. Beautiful scenic views. Definitely will return. Next time we will dine at Hearthside Dining for Saturday dinner."

  • "Flew in from Hamilton landing on a well maintained grass runway. Lovely view overlooking Rice Lake in a comfortable upgraded dining room with comfy seats. Pianist quietly playing in the background. Service attentive. Two complaints though. Buffet only just ok. Desserts were awesome but much of the pre-made goods were dry, especially anything on bread and too long a line for omelettes and crepes. Also, our Open table reservation was lost even after calling to confirm the day before. Still would recommend for a nice Sunday brunch though."

  • "Our Sunday brunch at Elmhirst was wonderful. The atmosphere was very relaxing especially with the gorgeous view of the lake. Food selection was exceptional, both hot and cold, sweet and savoury. We will definitely be back again and would love to try dinner as well."

  • "We have had various events at Hearthside dining over the past few years, both large scale(65 people) and smaller (8), and always for brunch. Working with the Elmhirst family is a joy! They are very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. The food is always fresh, savoury, and nicely presented. It's a bonus that they choose locally for their ingredients ( and they have their own garden I think!), and their wines are Ontario's best. Serving staff and kind and professional. This is a great place to have events and the food, wine and view are top notch!"

  • "The service was good, but instead of leisurely, it was extremely slow! Apologies from wait staff, no offers of supplemental food or drink during the wait.. The dessert was eye catching, but difficult to eat, very sticky and uncomfortable from a dental point of view for those over 50! Valentines Day should equal chocolate! We live nearby and would return at some point, our guests would not return."

  • "This was our first time at Hearthside Dining, Elmhirst's Resort. I can't say enough about the food, it was exceptional. Two of our party ordered the Duck and one the steak and each of them said their meal was absolutely delicious. I ordered the Capon and it was wonderful! The service was impeccable. Would certainly recommend the restaurant to friends if they are looking for good fine dining in comfortable surroundings. Will definitely be back."

  • "WOnderful brunch - laid back and easy to chat and visit with long time friends. Vista across lake was magnificant - dress in layers so if the sun pours in you can adjust. Make sure to try the omlette bar"

  • "Gourmet dinner at a reasonable price with a picture window view of the lake. Extensive Ontario wine list at a reasonable price. Wait staff very attentive and friendly. Have heard that the Sunday brunch is worth the drive."

  • "We've been going to the Elmhirst for lunch or dinner for years. It's a beautiful spot. You walk through lovely gardens between the parking lot and the restaurant building. The Hearthside Dining Room looks out onto serene Rice Lake, so it's always best to go during daylight hours so you can see the view. And the food! Always good! The beef - from Elmhirst farm - is wonderful! They also have a small vegetable garden that provides produce for the restaurant."
