Found this hidden gem of a restaurant while looking online trying to plan a date in Guelph for my bf.
This place had a atmosphere, great service and amazing food.. l must say, that was the best Caesar salad EVER!!! Something so simple! I would highly recommend it, oh and to the restaurant owner/staff... lovely personal touch to the bathrooms. Thank you for appreciating your customers needs!

Service was excellent. Food was good but not as good as expected at the price.
Caesar salad was excellent, striploin was good, ice cut of meat but not incredibly tasty... have had many better steaks and for less than the $38 price tag. Strawberry tartufo was pretty tasty.

Also had 2 glasses of wine, first glass MIGHT have been 4 ounces at best.....second glass was noticeably bigger 5+ounces. Inconsistent pour.

My Wife had the salmon and was not happy with it. She ate it but she was very disappointed in the meal.

A $200 night out including tip, enjoyable evening but probably a better value at the Keg or similar.
That said, service was excellent and staff very friendly.

Food quality/prep was not what we have had on previous visits.

Server 5 stars, kitchen/bar...3 stars.

We were there for lunch to celebrate my mother's 93rd birthday. The food was outstanding and our server, Pierre, treat Mom like an angel. While it was already a special occasion, Pierre, made it even more memorable.

Aberfoyle mill is our go to place for any special occasion or to meet friends from out of town. We are never disappointed and Caesar salad, as advertised is to die for. Make it there Friday or Saturday for their prime rib. We also held a banquet in the upper level couple of years ago and people still rave about it. And the staff and owners are always friendly and entertaining .

We went for dinner to Aberfoyle Inn, after seeing The Music Man at Stratford. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful day. We were 4 people; all enjoyed the delicious prime rib which was as soft as butter with excellent gravy and veggies. We also enjoyed the ambiance of this lovely country inn. We always go there when we go to the Stratford Festival. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was delicious. We ordered 2 steaks. They were cooked beautifully and the roasted vegetables were delightful. We enjoyed every bite. Wait staff was the right balance of attentive without being intrusive. My only complaint is that I specified it was a special birthday dinner in my reservation and the staff did not even so much as say happy birthday. As dinner for two on a Wednesday is a pretty low-key birthday, some acknowledgement would have been nice.

We love this restaurant!! Their Prime Rib dinners are the best anywhere and the service is always attentive and accommodating. We have had a number of family occasions at Aberfoyle Mill and they are always so willing to provide a pleasant dining experience. The servers are attentive to everyone's needs, the atmosphere is comfortable and unique, and the menu provides options for a variety of appetites. A must try is their Caesar Salad , their daily soup is always tasty and of course, the Prime Rib is a must try!

We have been going to the Aberfoyle for years. It is definitely a hidden gem in Aberfoyle, not too far off the highway. Their caesar salad is one of the best I have ever tasted with amazing double smoked bacon. The duck is also very good. I have never tasted the prime rib but other guests rave about it. I believe they only offer it on the weekends though so if you're going for that you might want to check first. The waiters at first seem very serious but are delightful once you start talking to them. I highly recommend the Aberfoyle.

I have been going to this restaurant for years. It truly is one of a kind. The food is fabulous, I have never had anything I didn't like. The quality is also supreme. The staff are very accommodating and willing to change dishes to adjust for allergies or just preferences. They have a reasonably priced kids menu as well. If you ever get the chance definitely go there!

Our party of six had an excellent time. As usual, the Caesar salad is the absolute best...no other restaurant compares for taste, freshness and size. Four of us enjoyed the pasta dish with seared beef tips...again, always the same excellent quality and serving size is generous. To a person we all agreed that their decaf coffee is possibly the best we have ever had. Our waiter was attentive, yet not intrusive, kept our water glasses filled and able to provide menu suggestions. The three women in our party have been coming to the Aberfoyle Inn every December for many years. We always look forward to this annual gathering and appreciate the staff, ambience and excellent food.

Each couple paid their respective bill by credit card and found their receipts to be confusing in that the gratuity must be entered in writing on a separate line, then totalled. When we checked our posted purchase on our pending credit card statement, it did not reflect inclusion of the gratuity, which we we called the Inn to flag, but did not receive a return call back. Would suggest the Aberfoyle revamp its credit card payment system, otherwise the Aberfoyle remains one of the best restaurants for service, food and ambience within the hamilton and K-W area.

We have been concluding our day in Stratford with a post-theatre dinner at the Aberfoyle Mill Restaurant for over fifteen years. We can always count on good service and a delicious dinner to end the day. It has become part of our "day in Stratford". The location is conveniently close to the 401 and within easy driving to our destinations: one in Orangeville, Brampton and although we live in Ottawa, we were staying in Hamilton. We will be returning next year.

I had rainbow trout. My friend had Caesar salad with shrimp. Both were delicious and portions were generous. Our waiter was outstanding - accommodating, attentive & amusing. I love the ambience at Aberfoyle, but I do find the noise level a little intrusive, particularly is there is a group of six or more in attendance.

Great ambience, good food and pleasant surroundings, all very conducive to a pleasant lunch with old friends. It is actually great to sit and look around at the antiques hanging from the walls many of which stimulate conversations about the utility of the implements. A great location and great experience.
