The room was very cold and we needed to put on our scarves and coat to keep warm. Power went out and generator kicked in-no problem as it added to the ambiance.Overall a beautiful evening barring the temparature of the room.

As always, dinner was amazing. The deconstructed Caesar salad is okay, I would still pick a regular over this however. The linguini was phenomenal and I highly recommend it! Wine selection by the glass is average at best, one option per white/red variety (i.e., Riesling, sauv blanc, etc.). I can't remember our servers name, but she was very kind, attentive, and helpful.
We will of course be returning for the menu change in the Winter.

We booked Rawley's for a birthday dinner. On arrival we were shown to a high table in the piano bar...told tables in the dining room were reserved. After some persuasion, we were seated in the dining room. (of the three tables available in the dining room when we were seated, two were still available when we left)

Our server (his first night) showed a complete lack of training in opening a bottle of wine...a 2018 Mondavi Cabernet we regularly buy for just under $20... it was $85 which I feel is a bit high mark-up.

I requested our meal be split by the kitchen...it came on one plate with a small side bread plate for my wife.

Brunch was a little disappointing. While our server was amazing and ambiance great, the food was below par. I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for better quality or attention. My omelet was dry, and I wasn't able to finish. Scrambled eggs were also slightly below average.

Great service, tasty food, good Autumn Fall Colours deal. Ambiance and everything were positive. Only downside was speed of food from the kitchen. As much as most of the food was worth the wait, it was a little concerning during the time when the table was simply waiting for the food to be prepared.

We love going to Rawley for dinner and drinks. We live on the lake and are grateful to have a place to boat to. It is fabulous that the lodge accepts locals to enjoy an evening out.
We attended your restaurant about a dozen times this summer. But on this last visit before moving home for the winter we found everything had gone downhill. We ordered several different items from the menu only to be told they were sold out of them, or they served the last to another patron.
If you are in the midst of “the taste of Fall”, you should have enough food to serve your clientele. This left an unsatisfactory feeling to a place we love to attend.
Also on this visit our Server forgot our table in several occasions, neglecting to bring things we ordered. We had to repeatedly ask for what we had ordered.
I hope on our next visit we find ourselves experiencing a much finer evening.’

The food was absolutely amazing. My husband and I went for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, October 11th. It was a three course meal for $60. We both had the beet, feta, pumpkins seeds and greens salad. My husband had turduckin and I had the pickerel. Both main courses were so tasty and delicious. We both had pumpkin, maple spice or something cake. It was also amazing. I had to take half of my cake home because I was so full. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. A very relaxing, different Thanksgiving that we truly enjoyed. Lori

First of all, one of the servers earlier had told me we didn’t have to do Prix fix menu and could order separately because my boyfriend doesn’t care for apps or dessert. When we came back for dinner our server wouldn’t hear of it when I mentioned it to her and said it was fixed menu. There were only 9 tables (7 of the tables were just couples) and 3 servers which was a pretty good ratio for service so we thought the service time would be good but it wasn’t . She sat us at the smallest random table by a wall that felt super uncomfortable although most of the restaurant was empty.we could’ve been seated anywhere. I asked if we could please move and she gave me attitude and said ‘well the other table would have to be set.’ Then came back and said ‘oh let me get you guys waters after 20 mins. She Took our drinks menu and didn’t even ask us if we wanted a drink the entire time we were there. The three couples who came after us got served all courses and left well before us because they had a different server. The food itself was a 2 hour disaster. The calamari came cold and we didn’t say anything. My steak that I had asked for to be medium rare came over done so she took it back and brought me another one and said ‘ not sure what’s going on with the chef today he seems to not be getting the medium rare right - so obviously it had happened multiple times, my second steak was even more over cooked than the first time and she came back once to check up on us and I said I’m hungry I’m just going to eat it I guess and I ended up taking maybe 4 bites then didn’t even finish my meal. She just laughed and said I’m so sorry. We asked for our dessert to go at this point and our bill. Considering the amount I ate and the fact that my food was absolute garbage, you would’ve thought she would’ve done some about my bill but nope nothing . On top of that I asked another person at front desk who the manager of the dining area is and found out that our server Diane was the manager !

A wonderful.
The only criticism(constructive) is
>The waitress was excellent but it would of been nice to have cutlery replaced with each course rather than used utensils left to be used again.
A distraction from an otherwise relaxed presentation.
>We were not offered coffee following dessert nor a liquor should we had wished one.
We were somewhat ready to depart but felt a bit of "the bums rush"
:)
Glad we attended and it was a memorable evening.
We are boaters on Georgian Bay and have enjoyed mooring at Rawley as well as staying as guests in the Lodge in the off seasons.

Food was delicious during Barrielicious.
However the serving and dining experience needs improvement. Our server did not check on us or ask us for refills of our beverages, we asked for more water but did not receive it until the end of our meal.
We received our appetizers late and main early making us feel rushed.
Server poured my one wine glass as if she was dumping a bucket.
The atmosphere was loud and servers were practically running the whole time, unsure of where meals were going who ordered what or if people ordered.

Went to Rawleys for the last Barrielicous event. Food was tasty though we were a little confused that when we wanted a fish dish we were told the only option was one that was an up charge. Felt that if you were going to offer a set menu program at least offer something within that price point not just upsell options. Also felt that we were rushed to get out of the place appetizer came extremely quickly and when dinner was done bill was on our table before we were even close to being done our drinks. They definitely wanted to turn the table.

Beautiful place with lots of windows, perfect view of the lake and very nice décor. Very friendly waiter and waitresses, the main hostess extremely serious, no smile whatsoever, but efficient and professional. The menu a bit short, especially for a vegetarian. Food great and with impressive presentation. It would be nice if there were more dishes, including desserts! suitable for non-meat eaters. We've had two dinners in a row (Friday and Saturday), and each day soups of the day were based on/included meat, each day the desserts were exactly the same. But it is definitely a place worth driving to and having a meal. We intend to come back hoping for more vegetarian dishes in the future.

My husband and I went out for a long overdue date night. It was a fabulous experience! Our server Aidan was wonderful in every way! We went early and had the place to ourselves before more started to arrive for dinner. There was a wedding going on in the next room, the wedding guests were coming in/out of the dining area - if they had a separate entrance/exit it would have been more enjoyable - but minor detail. Food was incredible, delicious wine pairings and overall very nice experience. We will certainly be back, would love to go in the summer time!

Great location and the restaurant is beautiful. Service was great our waitress was very nice and food came out in good time. Did not have to wait long. My tuna was very heavily salted and there was a lot of pickled vegetables on top of the meal that really just took it over. Everything else including my wife’s meal was absolutely delicious. That’s the only reason why I didn’t give it a 5 star. Everything was great. If your looking for a real nice place to have a special meal, check this place out.
