We dined at Heather Lodge for our 10th anniversary. It was better than expected in all aspects! They had a happy anniversary sign on our table with our last name as reserved. We met Maria, the owner and she was very nice. Our waitress was gloved and masked and our table was outside under an umbrella overlooking beautiful 12 mile lake. We listened to the lake, birds and boaters. It reminded us of our lakeside home with service! Our meals were to die for and we were totally impressed. Thank you.

Fantastic meal on the 2-tiered patio.
Waitresses wore masks and spent minimal time and attention at our table due to Covid guidelines.
And that is to be expected.
Soups are delicious here. Main courses artistically plated and tasty.

Even though it was take out and I had a 15 minute drive, food was incredible and still hot. Steak was cooked to perfection. Beautifully presented.

We have been to Heather Lodge many times, Mother's day this year was different as it was pick up only. The taste of the food, as always, was excellent. Delivery to the car outside the lodge was perfect. What really surprised us was related to the food. We ordered the Shrimp Ceveche and were disappointed as we received 3 peeled shrimp on a bed of lettuce, far from Shrimp Ceveche. For the main course I had the "rack of lamb" which turned out to be 2 lamb chops. Not what was expected for $52 a meal. We had called and asked how many chops would there be and were told 4. We would still recommend Heather Lodge as the service, ambiance and food taste is excellent at the lodge. We will not use take out again from them.

My only suggestion would be to separate the guests a bit more. Very easy to hear the next table’s conversation, yet the inside was empty of tables. Other than that, can’t wait to come back!

This was a our first time for dinner and I really don't know why. Heather Lodge is a GEM! The atmosphere is charming, warm and a snuggly feeling on a cold winter's night. Then the food arrives and the experience ties in body and soul to the external comforts mentioned. We had a wonderful time with another couple or our best friends.

Can't wait to go back!

Starters were average and a bit heavy handed on dressing and sauce. Mains (chicken supreme and pork schnitzel) were much better quality and flavour. Too bad they don’t have more evolving menu...seemed to me the salads and starters were the same as they were 2 years ago when I was last there. Great setting here in the Haliburton Highlands...wish they could turn it up a notch in the kitchen.

The servers were very friendly, efficient and informative. The setting and ambiance were lovely. We would highly recommend Heather Lodge for a special evening.

The meal experience was great, except that the voices from the table of 4 adjacent to us made it difficult for the 2 of us to converse. The tables seem too close together, or they were particularly loud talkers.

Incredible experience! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My roasted chicken wrapped in phyllo was so creative and the flavors worked together beautifully. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Our appetizers were unique, well presented and delicious. The ambiance could not be beat. The view was stunning and the dining room was cosy, giving you the feeling of being in a ski lodge. Only recommendation would be to serve the soup in a slightly smaller dish. I filled up on it and wished I'd eaten a bit less of it by the time my main dish arrived. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would dine here again.
