“Lovely view, great food, fantastic ambience”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

We attended a Christmas lunch here with a work group. We got to sit in the glass enclosed private area overlooking the stream-it was gorgeous. The food was very good, and the servers were very friendly and accommodating. I had some dietary needs, and the kitchen was very flexible as well and gave me options.

“The Ancaster Mill Rises to the occasion!”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

While having dined at The Ancaster Mill numerous times, just recently the facility hosted the annual fundraiser for The Good Shepard. The theme is "cool" Jazz on a Winter's night. Every room in the Mill is utilized, wherein different musical groups perform. Each room in the spacious facility also hosts a food buffet with each doing one of appetizers, meat, fish and desserts. There is a bar set up in each room as well. The food was absolutely outstanding and the service as efficient as one could require, Dirty plates, empty glasses, used napkins etc., seldom rested for more than a minute or two without being scooped up and every server was polite, gracious and most helpful. Along with some outstanding music from "name" performers, the ambiance of the facility itself took a starring role, with the cascading creek tumbling down stratified levels of Niagara limestone falls, beside the large picture windows of the main dining room and under the covered walkway over from the original mill to the newer annex. Fireplaces throughout were blazing with the lighting soft and warming. The restaurant itself, housed in an 18th century stone mill, sits in a spectacular setting. The kitchen is capable of preparing and serving gourmet quality food. I would highly recommend The Ancaster Mill for lunch, brunch or dinner and of course, if you have a celebratory event, they are well situated to satisfy your needs. It should be noted that the ownership group has excellent restaurants situated in the south-west of Hamilton on Locke Street, on the lake shore in Burlington, in Cambridge and have purchased to Elora Mill, which is under renovation,
