Elegant Sunday brunch buffet in a charming early 20th century building near the Humber River. I usually find brunch buffets a little overkill, since I'm not a big eater. However, the food and selection is excellent, so it's nice for a special occasion - just make sure you come hungry! Service was excellent - hosts greeted us warmly and servers were attentive throughout the meal.

I have been to the Old Mill quite a few times which included my mother's 90th birthday celebration. It was very enjoyable with friends and family. Recently my two daughters and I took my husband for lunch on his birthday. My eldest daughter is deaf/autistic and she enjoyed the atmosphere and meal which was even more pleasant and relaxing for us. My daughter enjoyed the spare ribs and I love their bread puddings. I have also been to the Spa a few times and will continue to go there for my massages which I thoroughly enjoy. The Old Mill is my favorite spot.

Should offer soft drinks with the brunch...such as orange juice, sprite or coke...

Great atmosphere, superb service and delicious food. The lunch buffet is well with the price. My favorite dishes included the curry and roast beef. Best dessert was the cookies and cream cheesecake. The only suggestion I have would be to make the cheese/crackers display a little more attractive. The food signs looked old, definitely needing to be replaced.

As always, the Sunday Family Buffet was fantastic. The appetizers, salads are fresh, the main courses are great and different each time we come, with one staple - the roast beef - always just perfect. We will return again and again. We have recommended the Sunday Family Buffet to many of our friends and colleagues. Keep doing this.

We were warmly greeted and seated without delay. The servers were very cordial and responsive. The meal was well prepared and well presented. Waiter also brought a chocolate mousse tart with candle (gratis) for one of us who was celebrating a birthday. Good food, nice ambiance, good time had by all!

Soup was great but only barely warm. I like my soup hot - you need a MUCH better warmer.

Shrimp need to be peeled. I don't like legs and shells on mine.

Meat offerings were so-so, at best. Beef was tough as usual. For the price, beef should be better cut.

Need seniors discount. Well known fact that seniors eat less. $30 is very expensive for seniors' buffet. Recommend $24.95 for seniors. Mandarin does it for less.

I don't like to have to pay for parking.

Rolls were very good. Caesar salad was delicious.

We went to the Sunday night Buffet.
Disappointed is supposed to be family day buffet...
But my child along with other children (younger and older) I overheard did not like the hot selections ...(tough turkey, tough pork loin unappetizing pasta, etc. simple pastas, mac'n cheese, battered fish , pizza etc.
U have to have more kid/child friendly options (other than desserts) for a family day buffet ...and the last Sunday evening that we went the hot dishes just did not measure up..

Making the reservation was difficult I left two voice mails and did not get a call back
Called reception and they transferred my message still no call
On line booking is the way to go however for those that don't or can't you could frustrate potential customers

Great food. Excellent service. Great ambience. Recommend for dining either for supper. Sunday brunches are excellent too.

We have been coming here for our Christmas lunch for 10 years now. Love the ambiance here but in the past few years the food quality seems to have gone down and now the price has gone up.
I am not sure we will be back next year.

My friend has impaired mobility. We were seated perfectly for her needs. There is a great array of food and the salads, especially the cole slaw, are really good.

The foods were excellent and we love the various types of salads. The temperature of the hot food was excellent and we will definitely return to this restaurant!

My mom and I went for Sunday Brunch. The food was excellent. There is a great variety of high quality food. The dining room is lovely. We went for their pre Christmas brunch and the decor was beautiful. The only issue is when we ordered tea. They used the same tea bag three times. Coffee drinkers get fresh coffee every cup but tea drinkers have to reuse a single tea bag for three pots. A new bag for the second or third pot would be appreciated.

Old Mill's dining room is dependable. When there are music performances they seem to staff up to meet the demands of bigger crowds.

The food quality decline these two years. Don't expect to encounter this in Old mills. Some hot food was cold, meat was dry, soup was cold and we almost trip a few times on the food that was on the floor.

This year we noticed they have changed to more Asian fusion. And replaced classic Italian salad with Asian salad and classic soup with Thai soup! We miss the classic European dishes that we always came for. We don't expect to eat many Asian dishes instead like every other restaurant serves. We look forward to come back for nice classic dishes. They have lost their touch. Whatever dishes left that hasn't replace has quality issue. They still have their signature meat section but the old mills beef strew was so tough. The fry rice was dry and hard too.

The servers and manager always provided excellent services. This place is a classic, I hope they reconsider bringing back their classic dishes. We been going there for 10 years and quite disappointed these two years. We might consider other options.

TL;dr make sure you request a table in the main dining area when you book, especially during busy holiday season, or you could be relegated to a back room that is cold and understaffed.

A huge selection of food beautifully presented. Wasn't keen on the tomato mashed potatoes - did not go well with gravy, and our party of 4 agreed on that. But everything else was lovely and abundant.

Beautiful ambiance. The food was very good, however, the selection was limited. There should be a much greater variety for the price. Paying for parking is also not acceptable.

The Terrace was a nice spot for an office luncheon. Comfortable seating. The fellows in our group thoroughly enjoyed the food. There were no complaints from my colleagues.
I was disappointed that we were not offered coffee or tea towards the end of our meal.

I have been going to the Old Mill Sunday brunch for at least 30 years. At one time it was considered somewhat grand and going to the brunch considered special. Over the past few years we have noticed that the place is in need of a major facelift is losing its elegant appeal. In addition, the quality of food served is also declining. At one time I couldn't keep myself away from the food bar because of the variety of what is served is pretty basic..NO WOW features. Basic..basic. We were a group of 5 and that was the consensus of all of us. This will be the last time for the Old Mill brunch.
