Excellent food, and service at the table. Unfortunately my husband who is Celiac, did not get knowledge
Information from the kitchen staff who were brought to him regarding Gluten Free food, on the Sunday Brunch Buffet. So he basically had to choose the safe food himself. Which of course was more limiting. That was disappointing.
The structure is just beautiful, and it is surely worth a visit. As for the restaurant, nobody mentioned during the booking process or during the booking confirmation call that the menu was going to be heavily restricted because of an entertainment night taking place. Unfortunately, the food was way below the expectations. The soup was dull and basic, and the risotto simply wasn't a risotto, it was flavourless, and was served cold. Even the cheesecake had a weird texture and flavour. Surely not the type of cuisine you would expect from such a place.
The food and service were very good. We had a nice table that we could all see and talk to each other. We noted that some of the food tray were empty and were not replaced in a timely manner. But other than it was an overall a great experience.
Went for dinner and live entertainment. The dining room was very nice. The appetizers were good. If you're looking for your entrée to fill you...not going to happen. Very small portions. Also, the wait staff can be slow when the dining room is full.
First time visit to The Old Mill. Always wanted to try this place out.
For an established restaurant, the service was sub par. The waitress I think was new and quite forgetful.
It didn't help that the female hostess who oversaw everything was barking orders to the staff which one would think may have rattled the waitress a wee bit.
The dinner menu was somewhat limited but what was there and what we all ordered was very good.
Another knock on the Old Mill is the dinner reservation confirmation to my phone. Received a message twice and they requested a return call to confirm the reservation. Trying to get through to speak to an actual person was not successful.
I will give The Old Mill another try in the future and hopefully the service will improve.
The building and the grounds are absolutely beautiful but it felt as if the restaurant just opened and the staff were trying to get their act together.
The food was certainly not what it used to be at the Old Mill. We felt rushed by the wait staff. There was a full on dance party while we were eating that we were charged an extra $15 for.
Bill was shocking at $45.95/person for buffet lunch on a Tuesday ? Then $14 bucks for a cheap local 6 oz wine ? No wonder the parking lot was sparsely populated as was the restaurant. Initially when I saw the bill I thought it was someone else's.. a mistake, but no. This was the last annual birthday lunch for us.. too bad, as it's a great historic location that had many nice memories for us.
Great atmosphere, not loud music was a good level, we sat in the solarium was very nice. Food was terrific great selection. Service as always excellent
Very nice place , service was good.
terrific ....full stop. Geeat value and great food...what more can one ask for?
Food was average, we wanted a la carte menu rather than the buffet but there was very limited choice (literally sandwiches, burger or fish and chips) so felt we had to try the buffet for more choice....it was very average. Nice building and space but food was lack lustre.
My first visit. Service was excellent the food was well prepared and very tasty. The atmosphere was the clincher. Loved the room we ate in.
lovely place to meet friends for a leisurely Sunday brunch. Kids liked the food in addition to adults. Beautiful building. The attention for drinks/coffee was excellent. I would have liked an omelette station which I felt would have earned my review 5 stars.
When we arrived they doubted we had put a request for a table with 2 strollers (we did and I showed them my reservation confirmation). The service was terrible: they were closing tables next to us and none came to introduce to us and show where the buffet was and also none told us that drinks were not included in the menu. Food was ok but service is key and because of that we will never come back.
I have been going to the Old Mill for years and it has become a little pricey for the value but last Saturday night I attended with friends (2 other couples) and I had to approach the front desk to get a server to attend to us as I always do the reservations and felt responsible for my guests. The food was okay except that 4 of the others were not feeling well (stomach) afterwards and it wasn't the drinking as one of them doesn't drink but it appeared to be the spread for the bread as it was the only thing that all four had but not 2 of us. My friends are all happy to be paying $300+ for good food and entertainment but all agreed that the food was not that great value (especially with being unwell) and the service below standards.

I've been here a few time and they had an Opera Serenate night. The show was excellent and the food amazing as always.
Have only attended luncheon buffets in recent years, but in the past, enjoyed many a fine meal & evening of dancing, or Sunday dinner with children.
Noontime parking now seems to be tricky - overflow from Subway users ?
The buffet gave us good value and a great choice of food.
We booked a table for 8 pm, expecting al la carte menu in the dining room.
When were shown to our table, we were advised that it was buffet only and closing at 9 pm.
There was obviously insufficient time to complete 3 courses.
The manager eventually took us to the bar, where we had a bar meal.
The food was good and service excellent.
However it was not the venue we were expecting, so we were very upset after a 1 hour drive.
it was to be my birthday special dinner !!!!!!!!!
The price is pretty reasonable considering the spread that was available. In the "old days" they had a hip of beef that was carved but the prime rib was almost as good. No Yorkshire Pudding anymore though. The only other item missing from the past the Old Mill was famous for was the heavenly trifle. Not the kind with jello and other premade items, but rather the true fruit trifle with sponge and custard. Black Forest Cake used to also be a staple but the items represented there today were good. If you are a chocoholic the fountain with fresh fruit will appeal to you. The best part of the Old MIll is the atmosphere and that is preserved. Our favourite Oak Room on the second floor that was damaged in the fire is now a more plain addition but heavy curtains cover up the missing columns and carving that the room had. It is still pleasant but not quite what it was. The biggest bonus is going on a cold day when all the fireplaces are in use. The smell and ambiance can't be beat. I would think it would be a great place for a festive meal for that very reason.
Sweet 16 birthday party
Food, ambiance and service are always great!
Little things to be carefull: we could smell the gaz used for the heating plates.. a lot... maybe ventilation should be a bit stronger to send it up rather than towards customers... also, many noticable"spider webs" on decorations, there are many things and many up on the walls and high ceilings, but in a restaurant so fancy and expensive, those things should be looked after...
Other wise, all was great! Luigi, our table attendant, did an AWESOME job! :)
My table got changed, and I would not be stuck in the back 40, because the private party in the balcony got us booted out. Eventually, I got a good table after complaining. My waitress Patricia was outstanding!
First time at Old Mill. Beautiful place that can take you back in time. Overall it was a nice evening with couple unexpected things that cast a shadow over what was supposed to be a special occasion. We made a reservation at Dining Room, got called back to confirm that we're coming, and when we arrived nobody asked if we had a reservation and under which name. Kinda unnecessary hussle and waste of time on both ends. Upon ordering got pretty disappointed when the waiter came back to our table saying that one of our choices is unavailable. Normally, one wouldn't expect that out of 7 entrée choices something would be unavailable. Or at least could expect that the waiter would mention it upfront. Not sure if this happens often but sharing our experience. Overall, the food and wine choices we had were good. We then went to Home Smith Bar and had a great time listening to some jazz.
Very nice lunch buffet. Nice variety of salads, hot entrees and desserts.
We had a buffet dinner this Sunday and very disappointed with the poor quality and choice of the main dishes. We also we found the wine prices excessively expensive.
We enjoyed the food selection very much but we're dissapointed that the price has increased so much over the years. We have come back every year on the same weekend for the last three years and don't think it's worth the price it is now.
Great place for the whole family or large parties
We went on a Sunday night at 7:30 pm. The food that was out was delicious. Seemed like because it was close to closing at 9 pm, food was not replenished. I did ask for more soup and they brought it out. The desert was sparse as hardly any fruit was available - a few strawberries and pineapple chunks for the chocolate fountain. I would recommend this restaurant but probably for the buffet, it would be wise to go closer to the opening time.
My friend and I had the lunch buffet and it was wonderful. Lots of different items to choose from. Piping hot!
Everything was fresh and delicious.
Our waiters were friendly and helpful.
A wonderful time was had by all.
We went to the Thanksgiving buffet and, after looking forward to it because of some past reviews, were pretty disappointed with the experience. Understandably it was packed as it was a holiday but we were placed in a far off room with zero ambiance and limited service. The food selection was limited although what was there was quite good. We waited a long time for drink refills so it seems they were under staffed as our server looked very busy. Overall, sadly will not be repeating this next year.
Always a wonderful time ! Thank you Old Mill!!!!!!!
The food was not good at all not even the deserts, they have kids cooking the food like McDonald’s at least McDonald’s taste good, it was a waste of money don’t believe the hype, this place food sucks.
Excellent atmosphere! Tasty food. Elegant environment.
This was a mistake. Overcrowded and overpriced.
Upon arrival for Thanksgiving Dinner we were shepherded into a back room not much bigger than my living room. It was devoid of ambiance and filled with the kind of chairs you find at a conference. No windows. Plain white walls
The rest of the diners were in the large dining room full of Old Mill ambiance. Fireplace. Stone walls. Sumptuous chairs.
But, not only were we in a back room, we had to walk about 100 feet from our tables to a disorganized buffet. To get to the buffet you had to walk through all the tables full of diners in the main dining room. Then you had to walk with your plate back through the throngs of people filling up their plates at buffet and all the people sitting at their tables eating.
The food was nice but average. Nothing was above average.
For this we paid the same price as everyone else and by that I mean the people who enjoyed the ambiance of the historic main dining room. At roughly $60 per person for the buffet, this was completely unacceptable.
Very busy, packed, loud. Food is hi-him with an odd layout and overpriced for being underswhelmed. Staff pleasant and location quite pretty.
We went for the Thanksgiving brunch and had a very nice time. The food was very good and we enjoyed the old English ambiance. This is a good place for either a romantic dinner or a special occasion.
Very good buffet. It is pricy though.
We had our wedding at The Old Mill and have returned several times for our anniversary. We have never had a bad experience!
Outstanding service from our waiter, Peter. Excellent meal.
