This is by far the best value for Easter dinner buffet including wine and cocktails/beer. Aside from the value is the beautiful setting and consistency.
Thank you for a lovely family dinner opportunity.
Until next time,
Happy Miller

Loved the Easter Brunch. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Really enjoyed the magician who entertained us while we waited for our table.

We have visited the Anbaster Mill many times and will continue to return.

Its location, adjacent to one of Hamilton's many waterfalls, makes it unique. However, the food, drink and service are always excellent and worth the visit.

We went for brunch celebrating a special occasion and reserved a table a week ahead. reception and greeting were great but despite specifying in the booking that this is a special occasion and we would like a seating with a water view, we were initially placed in a table facing the wall. Staff were very understanding when I mentioned that we requested this in our reservation and moved us, we were seated in a better area as we initially requested. Waiter was very polite and responding to our needs and showing us where the hot food was. Everything tasted delicious and fresh hot with a large variety of options lunch more than breakfast though. Would prefer having more juice options as there were only 3. The coffee was horrible and decaffeinated or maybe just a hint of caffeine in it and served by the waiter per request. Would prefer having it next to the juice bar as a self serve with a variety of options and flavors. Overall it was an amazing satisfying meal, quite expensive but worth it if you're there for something special.

Great food! Everything was delicious. Lots of choice. Will definitely return in the summer.
Staff were polite, attentive and friendly. They were watchful without being overbearing. Always good!
The place is pretty with the waterfall.
Seated quickly and table altered to allow high chair. Enjoyable family reunion!

The Ancaster mill is beautiful. We were married here 4 years ago and came to celebrate our anniversary. The service was good and food was great. We are coming back for mother's Day brunch in May with all our family.

Our family has always loved the Ancaster Old Mill. It had been a number of years since our previous visit but they did not disappoint. We attended the Sunday Brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. The food, the staff, the whole place was just wonderful. It brought back many great memories and helped to create some new ones. Not only would I recommend The Ancaster Old Mill Brunch to a friend, we are already making plans to visit again!!

Long wait to be seated despite having a reservation. Menu was generic with no stand out dishes. Should have a chicken dish always instead of two bland fish options. Pork is incorporated into many dishes so beware if keeping kosher.

It was a great experience! My only “complaint” was our plates were never cleared when we got back to our table. Need more float staff to assist with this. Changing cutlery would have also been a nice upgrade for the price you pay and kind of expected but it did not happen from our server. Yet the table behind us from another server had this... “class act” service!

The view and ambience is worthwhile as is the food. The prices reflect this and the service level could be stepped up a bit, but overall okay for an out of Toronto restaurant.

We ordered the chef's menu for dinner and it was an absolute treat. So much more than we expected. Amuse bouche followed by 5 spectacular courses each paired with a fantastic wine (even dessert). We came on a Wednesday so the dining room was a little quiet to start but that's how I like it. Great venue for a special occasion, I would reccomend Ancaster Mill to anyone that appreciates great food and excellent value/service.

The waiter gave us a cold face, and didn't bring drinks to us while other guests have a yellow drink when they have sit. The plate collected at a very long time gap.
