The waiter was excellent and food was very good. Cool place but hampered by small number of people allowed. Look forward to coming back when things are back to normal

Our server, Steven was attentive and prompt - he performed the food check and seemed to appear at the right moments .
Quality of the special Rainbow Trout and Chicken Supreme was excellent . Nice accompaniment of root veggies .
Was just short of perfect - the fireplace was not operating !
We will return .

Don't understand how this restaurant is so highly rated. It was based on these reviews that we booked a dinner for our couples getaway. Very disappointing. Ambience felt like we were eating just outside a bowling alley or bingo hall. Not for the noise (a little music may have helped the ambience, there was none) but because of the bland decor and overall feel of being in a big square room with now flavour. Fireplace might have been nice, but I guess they felt it too much trouble to light. Speaking of flavour, food was bland to say the least. I ordered a $30.00 steak which was bland, pre-cut and had no character at all. Can't believe I paid that much for it. The server, I think, was not having a good night as she was less then thrilled to be serving us. Her mood improved after we ordered a bottle of wine, but certainly did not inspire us to "have a good time!". I think that COVID lent to the sparseness of the spaces there were not many tables, but it would have been nice to have it spruced up a little bit to give it some charm. But definitely, the menu was very lack lustre, especially for the price. An old time family restaurant at best which seems to be on its last legs. Very sorry we wasted a very rare "no-kids" evening there.

We came here for our 3rd anniversary. We chose it for their menu, which indicated a higher end dining experience. The photos online also indicated a higher end dinning room with cozy fireplace and vaulted ceilings. The beet trio was delicious but in total I think I had the combined mass of one beet, an ounce of goat cheese, and about 5-8 pecans. The price was $15, I think I was expecting a little more. My partner is vegetarian, so he ordered the mushroom appetizer, this was delicious and the correct portion for its price. I ordered the chicken supreme, stuffed with Brie and spinach, which was good, but the pear topping was dry and full of mustard seeds, looking like caviar, and did not have a good mouth feel. The fingerling potatoes were dry, no sauce to speak of, not even butter. The squash was amazing, but very little of it on the plate. When we arrived, we were seated in a bottom section that looked like a painted over chalet, and actually had a live edge picnic table in it, which is nice for a chalet, but not for the image that was advertised. We asked to be moved to the main dining area, and were granted the opportunity, which was appreciated. The tables were showing many years of wear and the booths upholstery was torn. The wait staff sent multiple people to deliver various things, which was confusing, I actually got mixed up because of masks, you can’t tell who they are, not their fault about the masks, but it would be nice to have one server. In a busy environment to save time, this makes sense, but it was not busy, we were one of 3 tables, and it was 7:30, well after the dinner rush. We were brought the wrong appetizer, then had to ask to have it removed from the bill, our drink menu was taken away after we ordered our first drink, and the cosmo is definitely not very good compared to what I’ve tasted. The specialty hot chocolate was delicious though. All in all, hit and miss. Try not to fancy if you can’t be. It’s a recipe for disappointment.

Horrible food. The $30 steak tasted like a. Frozen meal with club house gravy. Service was atrocious. We waited and waited to place our order then we did we were not checked on for over 30 minutes. I ordered a dry cab Sauvignon and was served a glass of white wine then when I asked the waitress she brought over a Syrah that was super sweet. I would certainly it return here not recommend it.

This place is a hidden gem in the blue mountain area. We’ve been all over the village and had some good and some disappointing meals, but the food here at The Pottery was excellent. Note - I’m not saying this is the best food you’ll ever have or that it’s a 5 star sorta place. I’m just saying that everything about it was excellent. We were in on a Tuesday night and it’s not at all busy, I think they only had 4 tables going so it was quiet. All in all this place punches above its weight for the price and location. We will be coming back.

Always a good meal at the Pottery, we return every time we are up at Blue for a family vacation. Menu is great and well priced unlike some of the restaurants in the village which lack quality and price gouge their customers. The Pottery is a great spot for a gourmet meal. Carol was great again as out server. Love the BYOW it's another great option for your guests.

I had a very enjoyable time with my family. The food was excellent and the staff were attentive and friendly. I love the space's artwork. I enjoyed the amount of space between tables & other groups of diners though this may have been due to our current pandemic. I'd definitely done there again when in the area.

The Pottery is an underappreciated gem of a restaurant that's hidden in the back of the Blue Mountain Inn. I've eaten there several times with an excellent experience each time. All the food is prepared with care, well seasoned and nicely plated. It seems like the chef and staff take pride in their work. Totally recommend!

The food here is always high quality and unique. We come every time we visit Blue Mountain. Prices are reasonable and staff is always pleasant. The place was not too busy for indoor seating but had outdoor tables as well. Indoor was well spaced out and clean. Always a pleasure to dine here as a family! Thank you.

We were a little unsure of The Pottery upon our arrival as the place was completely empty. It was a good thing we stayed. The food was absolutely delicious. We split a Cesar salad and an order of Saganaki for apps. Both were fantastic. My wife had the pork chop as her main, mine was the special - duck l’orange. Both were scrumptious. Service was kind, cordial and quick. Having the restaurant to ourselves turned out to be great, especially during the pandemic. Not a bad thing at all. Best food we’ve had up our whole trip, and the least costly to boot. Will return next time we’re here and will definitely be recommending it to friends and family. Thanks so much!

The whole Blue Mountain Inn looks a bit outdated and perhaps that’s why the atmosphere here was a little lack lustre. We did, however, get an entire area to ourselves and a HUGE table which is always appreciated when travelling with kids toys, books, and other distractions to get through a meal. We had a great server who was very nice to our kids. The food was very very good and came out quickly. All COVID-19 practices followed. I think the only thing that was disappointing was the decor and really you shouldn’t let that that put you off a great and reasonably priced meal.

Great spot @ Blue. Not in the village so it’s a bit less busy than some other options (located at the Blue Mountain Inn). We had a lovely table right beside the fireplace. Friendly staff, and delicious meal. Also, they took extra care to accommodate an allergy, which was greatly appreciated!

The service was extremely friendly and prompt. The atmosphere and food were ok but there are better options in the main village. I would bring a larger group (10+) here though just because of the service and proximity to the pub with live music right next door in the building.

We were a bachelorette party of 8, we were seated at a large table off to a private area which we greatly appreciated given we made the reservation last minute. They also decorated the table for us too! Our server was lovely, forget her name but she was Irish. She appeared to be one of the only servers working, she was very busy, but she did the best given the circumstances. It did take way too long to get our bills (20+ minutes, then we found an error) and took an additional 10 minutes to have them corrected.

Finally 2 girls who had the scallops were sick with food poi’s ending a few hours later. Disappointing for a bachelorette weekend.
