We have been there a few times for weddings, but the brunch (while a little pricey) is off the charts. Service is top notch and the food was amazing!

Excellent Sunday Brunch. Magical winter setting. There was a super selection of food that caters to all tastes, along with a fully attentive staff. Great experience.

Unfortunately, we were seated in an open busy and noisy area so that ruined our whole dining experience!! Way too loud with music and people surrounding us.

Farm to table menu was creative and delicious. As always service was exceptional. Wait staff greeting staff were all exceptional. Only down side was the lack of service or recognition to the 3 of us sitting at the bar waiting to get asked if we wanted a drink. Our meals arrived hot and cooked just as we asked for. Great sitting next to the windows watching the water flow over the falls. Love the ambiance . We will come here many more times in the future.

Fantastic location, beautiful views while eating dinner. Food was also fantastic, and service good. They were very apologetic, and comp'd our drinks and desserts because we waited longer than normal for our food.

The live music was a little loud. I came to the mill for the waterfall and ambiance. It was a little to much having the music. With the view the restaurant has i don’t think the music is needed

WOW! We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our first year of marriage at this lovely restaurant. The food and ambiance was spectacular. Our server was very attentive and even went out of his way to make sure our special requests were met. We asked him if we could sit by the fire place and have our dessert even though it was in a separate room of the restaurant. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

The service and the view were very good and extremely well done. The food on the other hand was just terrible. Me and my girlfriend got salmon for the start and it was so poorly done and tasted so bad we both couldn't finish for the meals I got a 14 Oz steak and it was good but not for the price I'd expect a steak like that to be 35 at the most it was not that well done for the price. My girlfriend got a mushroom pasta and it was so bad she couldn't finish it. I tried it and couldn't stomach it. I can't recommend this to anyone and me and my girlfriend are both very disappointed with the ancaster mill

What a beautiful spot! The service and general experience were just outstanding. We've been here a number of times, and always love the place. Food this time was a little less abundant and tasty than usual, but maybe it was the chef's night off.

My husband and I have made it a habit of enjoying a meal out to celebrate the Christmas season. This year and last year we have chosen the Ancaster Mill and have not been disappointed. I am on a gluten free diet and I was pleasantly surprised when I was served a gluten free bread with olive oil and balsamic - the waiter even remembered that I wasn't able to
have dairy (casein specifically). We enjoyed the wonderful vegetables - didn't know that Brussels Sprouts could be shredded. We loved our dinner and the attention to detail we received from our server. Nothing was a bother to him. Of course we will be back. I also noted the friendliness of all the staff.

Our meal was pleasant but I found the luncheon menu to be a little condensed with not much variety. For instance I wouldn't be coming to the Ancaster for a ham sandwich!
