Was there this weekend with my family and we had a great time! The service was impeccable, the food even better! Would highly recommend the Aberfoyle Inn restaurant.

Thanks for a great experience! Best Caesar salad ever!
I was hoping to have my mother’s 95th birthday dinner at your restaurant but she can’t manage the stairs to the bathroom. 😢 Too bad!
Your restaurant would have been perfect had it not been for that.
I love the fact the music is set low and does not interfere with conversation.
The staff were most helpful.

With COVID we have not been here (or any other restaurant) in awhile, but the staff at the Aberfoyle Mill made me feel very comfortable. There was hand sanitizer bottles every where, all staff were wearing masks and tables were moved apart for sufficient space between guests.

The food was as good as always. The Caesar salad is one of the best I have ever eater, particularly the bacon on it. It is a must try. We also recommend the Shaved Prime Rib Sandwich.

Service was excellent...very warm, polite and efficient.

The Aberfoyle Mill is a real gem. Definitely recommend.

We went there for my daughter's 20th birthday. It was the perfect place. The only thing I would warn people is to order your steak a little more well-done than you would normally. Luckily I made the mistake of ordering my steak medium [usually order medium rare]. It came medium rare. My daughter and her boyfriend ordered there's medium rare and came back rare. Everything else was fantastic, go there just make sure you are aware that to get your preference you may need to order your steak a little more well-done than usual.

Overall, for our first time it was a very good experience. The service was a bit slow when waiting for our final bill. And being outside at 7:00pm was a bit empty. Next time we have to book earlier r try inside which looks great.

Food choices at lunch is limited. Prime rib Sandwich was dry. My son didn’t like it. But the cesar salad as always is my fave, the steak and salmon were also good, the arugula salad not really my fave. waiter didn’t offer a refill of iced tea. Just took the glasses while my kids were still eating.

The Aberfoyle Mill has been a favourite restaurant of ours for years -- good food well prepared, relaxed ambiance, friendly staff. During the pandemic, we need to support local businesses more than ever. We can't recommend the Aberfolye Mill highly enough.

Food was excellent, as always. We had originally booked for the patio, but it was a blustery day and the hostess suggested that we go inside where the tables were adequately spaced for safety. Very enjoyable evening!

Went here on a fabulous date last evening, my date had been here many times and it was his suggestion, and I am glad I didn't try to change his mind! We chose to sit inside due to it being very windy, we had a reservation and were sat immediately. We ordered a local beer to start and the soup of the day which was a lovely Butternut Squash soup with delicious bread service. We did feel the main course and wine came rather quick and almost felt rushed initially, but realized it was likely due to the kitchen closing early for Covid regulations. Regardless, the main course was delicious, I could have cut the filet with a butter knife, it was cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. I loved the simplicity of the mashed potatoes, and the rustic carrot was so good. The red wine jus was just enough to balance the dish. We finished the evening with dessert, I had the White Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake and my boyfriend had the Pecan Tart, both were easily shareable and divine. I cannot wait to come back to try some of the other dishes and desserts! I am certain we will be back very soon! Stephanie was our server and she was excellent, especially during these challenging times for the service industry. All the staff were very nice and perfectly present without being overbearing. It was one of my most favorite dining experiences. thank you Aberfoyle Mill

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary eating an exceptional meal outside on the Aberfoyle Mill's patio. The food was outstanding. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this experience. Eating outside was simply wonderful as we watched dragonflies move over the nearby pond and heard the birds sing.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Fine service. The special of the day--ground sirloin and striploin burger w/ Caesar salad--was splendid: bacon, cheese, onion, tomatoes, pickles. Outside seating was comfortable, lots of space b/w table. I was surprised there weren't more customers on a gorgeous noon. Too bad it's more than an hour drive.

The Aberfoyle Mill lawn patio is such a nice ambiance beside the pond, with twinkling lights and each table having its own umbrella to provide shade. We loved it.
The food was delicious! All 4 of us ordered something different: the pasta, prime rib, chicken and salmon. We all ate every bite. Flavourful and great plating. The menu is more suited to a nice dinner out as opposed to quick light bites, luckily we were celebrating a belated birthday.
We just moved to the area, and tried it for the first time. We will definitely be back!
