My husband and I visited the Ancaster Mill for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and it was excellent!. The liver pate parfait was the best pate we have ever had. I hope they offer it on the regular dinner menu. My husband had the Lamb saddle and I had the turkey and we loved both. Both so flavourful and tender. Thank you Chef Andrew!
Our waitress, Rebecca was so professional and attentive. She definitely helped to make our evening just perfect. We have already booked our next dinner!
We were very disappointed with our meals. There were 6 of us and no one liked their meal. The salads were under dressed. When I asked for extra dressing we were brought containers that were just oil. My turkey dish was lukewarm, under seasoned, and tough. It also should have been served with a gravy or au jus. Three people in our party chose the lamb entree and it was basically raw. Not rare, raw. One person ordered the vegetarian entree and she said it was OK. The sides for the table were lukewarm.
If we had not been pressed for time we would have sent everything back.
This was an expensive meal. We felt that we had been ripped off.
The last time that we were at this restaurant we were also very disappointed but thought it was a one off. Apparently not. Years ago this used to be a very good restaurant. Not anymore.
Great atmosphere, delicious food and amazing service.
Beautiful setting and impeccable service. Everything was delicious and of a high standard. Looking forward to going again soon.

The service was great and the burger was absolutely amazing!
We will return!
Great food as always
Just a wonderful night overall. Great service. Wonderful food. Beautiful surroundings.
Lovely anniversary dinner at the Ancaster Mill. Our table had a beautiful view of the falls. The Sweet potato soup was velvety and creamy, the short rib was tender and delicious. My husband loved the gourmet burger. There were a few wedding parties getting photos done outside, which was fun to glimpse. Beautiful spot for a date night or special occasion!
beautiful restaurant but very underwhelming food, the high price is definitely for the ambiance.
One of my friends recommended this place for us and four of us went there. The place was amazing, loved the atmosphere, the food was good but unfortunately the service was really poor. I didn’t expect such poor service from such nice place. Our server, he was rude, impatient and everything we asked, the answer was to look in the menu. When we asked another server about the desserts options, he was really helpful, friendly and provided great recommendations to us, but unfortunately not our sever.
I think the our server did not really care much about the service provided because they charge you a set amount of tip anyway. Really disappointed.
First meal there in over 30 years (I moved to another part of Canada)... as delicious and as beautiful as I remember.!!
I had the beat steak I think I’ve ever eaten! The salads were delicious, the mains were delicious. The staff was so nice and truly a joy to interact with! We will definitely be back when we can!!
We love it here! Such a picturesque setting and the food and service are impeccable.
We have been coming here for years and love it every time.
Our meal was excellent. The time between courses was also excellent. Great value for the quality of food and service
The location is stunning, staff professional, and food delicious. Will be returning.
Amazing food and service!
We had a great time. Service, food and location were amazing
This is just a wedding venue. Our table was not near the mill unfortunately and service was slow. Food was good overall, but not great value without any ambiance. Service was not attentive.
It was bad. I think they are running on low staff post COVID. I made a note of celebrating birthday while booking but I had to remind server about it. Also, they offered no special gesture for the occasion. We were served food and left on our own. The service was poor. Long waiting time between one course to another and no one checked for refilling water etc. It was like we were at the mercy of the server to notice if our plates are to be changed or our drinks are to be refilled.
Loved the location and ambience although it was a bit too loud for a fine dine setup.
Very poor quality food for the price for such a beautiful ambience, poor service like everyone wanted us to go as quickly as possible extremely disappointed will not recommend to anyone frozen vegetables poor quality fish poor selection on the menu check out the KEG we get homemade bread amazing meals !!!!!
The food was excellent!
The service was impeccable!
The view was perfect!
My husbands meal was excellent but mine was nothing special and it was pricy
Beautiful views of the waterfall and gardens. The food and service both excellent!
Andrew was amazing!!
This place was so lovely! The food, service and view were great! We had a great view in the outdoor seating area. We will definitely return.
Excellent birthday meal. Good covid measures in place.
Lovely setting, great food- a bit different and excellent flavours.
Always a great experience here. So pretty. Great service. Good value. Lovely atmosphere. Good food.
We had a very nice meal, the food was excellent and the service was quick and friendly and we didn’t feel we were being rushed. I was very pleased to see that the staff were very conscientious about covid protocols and the tables were at a distance from each other. Once again it was a great experience .
The Ancaster Mill is a gem, and a great place to have special events. Wonderful atmosphere. The food was quite good, but I think the price just was too high to justify it, it was not particularly special to be worth it. You are paying for the (wonderful) ambiance and wine list I think. It's a great place to go though when someone else is paying.
Never disappointed. We have been often. Married there. Go back every few years to celebrate our anniversary. The food is always amazing and the service outstanding. We will continue to make it our tradition to go back.
It was an great experience. Our server, Andrew was excellent.
Always an event when we come. Never know what will be on the menu. We did miss the hot home baked rolls. Wish you could bring that back.
Nice setting by the brook with waterfall backdrop. Any table by the window is great. Good food is a bonus. Prime venue for special occasion.
We loved it! It’s been a while since we visited. The food was fantastic. Presentation was exquisite. We all enjoyed the experience. Service was excellent.
Going to the Ancaster Mill never disappoints!
The setting and the venue is gorgeous.
Very good food although I feel that the menu is somewhat limited.
Great wine choices as well!
Delicious food. Amazing ambiance. Will definitely be returning
Way over-priced. Service and ambience was excellent. Great for a wedding or special occasion,NOT for a regular night out.
There should be a dress code for such a lavish place.
Overall the service was excellent. I will go again.
Absolutely stunning scenery and the food was delicious!
Our terrine starter was ok, not great. The short ribs were good but I’ve had better. The lingcod was very good. The desserts were ok but not great (peach) (chocolate).
The service from Andrew was excellent
The ambiance was perfect as usual.
