Our server was OK. My striploin steak was excellent.
Lovely ambience by the fireplace, and socially distanced.

We'll return when lockdown is finished. One of our neighborhood gems.

We would like to see the menu changed to include some newer choices.
It's always the same and has become rather boring if you go there a lot.

Had a wonderful, socially distanced dinner with friends this past weekend. The food and drinks were spectacular and the owner/manager turned the lights on downstairs so we could see the old mill equipment and spring that runs through the lower level. The building itself is beautiful and rich in history in the area. My partner and I both had the lamb which was perfectly cooked and seasoned with buttery, tender-crisp sides. I had wanted the duck but got caught up chatting and they sold the last one before we got our order in. We started with the escargot - highly recommend - as well as their Caesar salad which has an excellent reputation and for good reason. Our guests had the beef tenderloin and stuffed chicken - both gave rave reviews. Desserts were carrot cake and creme brulee, both exceptional. I look forward to coming back and trying the duck in cherry sauce as well as hopefully joining one of their Murder Mystery evenings once things return to normal again.

Went just prior to Covid 19 lockdown. Felt very safe. All protocol followed. Too bad these quality restaurants have to close down for no reason

A very small portion of food for the price ($24.) We ordered the luncheon feature which was the rainbow trout. There was 1 carrot, about 4 thin green beans all very hard.
You couldn't cut them followed by a small amount of basmati rice with a small piece of trout on top. I would have liked the trout to be cooked more.

I would not have had this choice had I known it was so small for the price.
Usually the items on the menu are of a sufficient size and price.

We had our annual Christmas lunch at Aberfoyle and even with covid in play it was a wonderful feeling to be there. The food which is always good was delicious was again, and our waiter was excellent. The decorations created a wonderful and magical atmosphere. I would totally recommend this location for dinner and for lunch anytime of year.

Thanks for a great experience! Best Caesar salad ever!
I was hoping to have my mother’s 95th birthday dinner at your restaurant but she can’t manage the stairs to the bathroom. 😢 Too bad!
Your restaurant would have been perfect had it not been for that.
I love the fact the music is set low and does not interfere with conversation.
The staff were most helpful.

With COVID we have not been here (or any other restaurant) in awhile, but the staff at the Aberfoyle Mill made me feel very comfortable. There was hand sanitizer bottles every where, all staff were wearing masks and tables were moved apart for sufficient space between guests.

The food was as good as always. The Caesar salad is one of the best I have ever eater, particularly the bacon on it. It is a must try. We also recommend the Shaved Prime Rib Sandwich.

Service was excellent...very warm, polite and efficient.

The Aberfoyle Mill is a real gem. Definitely recommend.

We went there for my daughter's 20th birthday. It was the perfect place. The only thing I would warn people is to order your steak a little more well-done than you would normally. Luckily I made the mistake of ordering my steak medium [usually order medium rare]. It came medium rare. My daughter and her boyfriend ordered there's medium rare and came back rare. Everything else was fantastic, go there just make sure you are aware that to get your preference you may need to order your steak a little more well-done than usual.
