The atmosphere is amazing and we really love listening to the live music. The food here taste homemade and is very delicious! This is a great place to come and relax with a social beverage.

My family of 13, ages 15 to 65, stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner. There was great seafood and the chowder was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service was friendly and efficient!

This looks like a local favourite which has had a rcent makeover, the owner was young and friendly and the interior laidback but contemporary. We stopped for a coffee on the way through the town and were surprised by the atmosphere and quality food.
I love to come for breakfast here, or just pop in for a cup of coffee to go, food is great, staff are friendly, lots of baked goods too.

Just to be clear, this is a review of the "fine dining" restaurant at Glen Ora, and not of the more casual pub. My husband and I found this restaurant to be an odd mixture of very good, and some real misses. We arrived at 7:30 pm to find the restaurant less than half full, however the receptionist had to check to make sure we had a reservation before seating us. Although no one else was seated after us, other people tried to, but were turned away. Odd. Perhaps they limited capacity because of kitchen or serving staff issues? BTW, the grounds of the distillery are well landscaped, at least near the restaurant (the front fountain needs some help).There was live music (piano) when we arrived, however the playing stopped at 8 pm and never resumed. There was not even any piped-in music, so the restaurant was eerily quiet for most of our meal.Successful dishes included: Digby scallops wrapped in bacon and a delicious sorbet/granita flavored with whiskey (how do they do that, since alcohol won't freeze?). Sesame crusted seared tuna was not bad, but I'm not sure this was prepared on site (it's available wholesale).Misses: stone cold bread basket and a fish chowder that was gloppy and had too little fishAll in all, not a bad meal, but not one to write home about. I will be sure to pass your comments along to the necessary departments. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the beautiful grounds as our gardener works so hard to keep everything beautiful at Glenora. The pipe jetting from the holding pond, although resembling a fountain, is actually a water return pipe from the distillery building which is necessary for when we are preparing to distill. We, being so rurally located, do have a staffing issue in all departments after our students leave to return to school. Our reason for checking that all guests have a reservation is solely because we have to try to time all seating's to ensure better service both from the servers and the kitchen. I'm happy to read that parts of your visit were enjoyed, and assure you we will take a closer look at the areas that were not. We appreciate your visit and your review. Thank you! Bertha
