The original restaurant of Blue Mountain Resort has seen many changes over the years, most recently a completely renovated dining room that better fits the exciting local inspired menus our Chef team creates throughout the year. The Pottery offers something for everyone, with a casual relaxed atmosphere to match. Whether you are looking for a quiet table for two around our fireplace, or a large gathering with friends and family we have the space for you! Our hand crafted harvest table can seat up to eight people and is the perfect space to enjoy great food accompanied by great wine.

Food was excellent (brunch), service very good and plenty of room between tables in Covid times. Didn't notice any music and thought there might have been Christmas ambience but still November so not crucial. Thanks Pottery restaurant.

Basic inside, almost felt like we were sitting in a hallway. However the service and food more then made up for this. I had the Tomahawk Pork Chop, it was very delicious. I started with an excellent Caesar salad. My partner had the best salad claimed it was one of the best she's had. The mushroom risotto was interesting but not her favorite.

If you haven't been to the Pottery while at Blue Mountain, you should definitely go! Removed from the mayhem of the Village, we always have a delicious meal and great service. And Fallicious is the time to go!! The pork chop is amazing, so juicy and tender. Our kids had mussels (amazing) and the mushroom pasta...all delicious. And the shot-glass desserts are the perfect portions. Really recommend the Pottery - always delicious and a very cozy, warm atmosphere. Highly recommend while in the area :)

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.
