A great place for a relaxing dinner out with friends and family.
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!
I have been to Heather Lodge 3 times in the last year and it’s wonderful every time! It’s the perfect combination fine dining cuisine in a peaceful warm atmosphere with friendly and accommodating staff.
Had a very enjoyable Valentine's dinner. Food and service were excellent and my spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will definitely be back!!
Great food, great service, perfect atmosphere Highly recommend
Thank you to hosts Maria and James for a delicious meal. We brought our friends as a thank you for their help in our lives and they felt very impressed with the place and the food.
It was a beautiful stay staff were both curious and helpful they made my husbands birthday extra special and the the food was to die for would highly recommend this place to anyone but especially for couples the fire place in the room overlooking the lake was amazing
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!
Love this place. It has great food & the staff is very friendly & helpful. Beautiful setting.
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.
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it! We have change up the menu every year, with a new menu coming out this week again (taking your comments into consideration). We hope that come out to dine with us again on the updated menu for 2020!
Wonderful place and amazing staff. Just love Kim and Vicky couldn't have taken better care of us. They made my birthday really special! The food is always excellent and consistent. Love dining here and can't wait to go back! Keep up the good work!
Another great meal at Heather Lodge. Excellent food, excellent service, friendly staff.
Awesome restaurant. Fabulous food and great ambiance.
Heather Lodge is our favourite restaurant. They provide excellent group meals as well.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere!! This is our go to place for special occasions and when we need an adults night out.
Never had a bad meal at the Heather Lodge. Also never had bad service. Look forward to every visit and highly recommend to anyone who values a great night out. Thank you
We really enjoyed our dining experience. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious.
The menu offered varied selections for each course and all four courses were delicious. They had quite a few craft beers and a terrific selection of wine. The servers were very friendly, efficient and informative. The setting and ambiance were lovely. We would highly recommend Heather Lodge for a special evening.
We love dinning at heather lodge the food and service is outstanding!! We always look forward to our next dinner out there.
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.
We have come to this restaurant the last two of our anniversaries. The food is delicious and plentiful. We always go home with a doggie bag. You can bring your own wine and pay a corkage fee if you desire.
So relaxing sitting outside. It was a cool evening but the heater kept us all quite comfortable. Food delicious, as usual. Excellent service, as always
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.
I would recommend dinner highly as being really good food in a pretty setting with good value and service.
Meal was “very tasty”, elegantly presented and had portions that were “just right”. Serving staff was pleasant and appropriately attentive.
Great first time experience. Lovely setting, great service and awesome staff. Looking forward to our next visit.
My favourite place to dine!! The food is always delicious and the service is wonderful. We can’t wait for our next dinner there.
4 course meal all of which was very good. I had the steak which was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The service was great. The view was amazing. Highly recommend.
Heather Lodge is our favorite place to eat in the area. The service is always friendly and welcoming, the food is excellent, and with a quiet table overlooking the lake. Perfect.
Fantastic meal with friends last Saturday!! Dinner was awesome and our server was great!
Wonderful as always but very loud when a large crowd is inside.
Always enjoy a dinner out at Heather Lodge...especially if you can sit outside. Can’t beat the view!!!
Liz was our amazing server. We made reservations on open table and had requested an outside table. For some reason that did not show up on my reservations. Not sure exactly what happened. Not sure the person who looks after that came and spoke with us and was so awesome to accommodate our wishes with a great outdoor table. She also, put a note that we always would like a patio sitting. Great people, amazing food and we love that we can bring our own wine. Would recommend The Heather Lodge to anyone and we have. We brought friends and the were raving about the place and want to do it again.
We had the pleasure of going out for an "adult" dinner at Heather Lodge while visiting a friend's cottage last week. There was an hour long power outage while we were there and the staff and chef never missed a beat! Candle lit dinner was so nice! Service, atmosphere and food were all fantastic!
This place is a gem! We had dinner their with friends on the patio overlooking the lake! This has to be one of the best views in Halliburton!
The food was amazing. Sydney did a great job managing the flow of our 4 courses! Great wine list!
Has become our favourite dinner spot in the Highlands!
This evening was everything it was supposed to be. A great table, a great hostess. A quiet table with an awesome meal. There was lots of selection for the four course meal. The food was very well presented. We will definately be back
We have driven past this lodge, since we bought our cottage on Maple Lake in 1960. I have always been curious as to what you had to offer, so I checked out your Lodge online. I was pleasantly pleased about the information and the pictures that were posted. The four course dinner for $55 peeked my interest. My brother and his wife had just celebrated their 42 Anniversary. I took them to the Lodge. The food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed every dish that we had. Chef James and his team are at the top of their game. Our table was decorated and our waitress congratulated my brother and his wife. The grounds are beautiful. WE WILL BE RETURNING AND PASSING ON THE NEWS THAT IT IS A MUST TO GO AND DINE THERE. Thanks to all of you that made our evening one to remember.
The place is beautiful and charming; our patio table was very nice, although it would help to trim the bushes below a bit.
The soup was outstanding.
Duck brushettas a bit overtoasted.
Steak was very good, however the little piece of chicken in pastry was disappointing as a main course.
Cheesecake dessert with whipped cream was spectacular. Would be nice to have some fruits as the topping on the cream.
We brought our own wine what is a definite bonus.
The service was attentive and very polite.
Overall it was a very nice experience.
It's our favourite place in Minden. We have never been disappointed with our meals. It's the place where we take all our visitors and they always want to go back again. The food is amazing, so is the staff and the ambiance. Can't beat sitting outside (when there's no bugs); scenery is so beautiful.
