    The experience started well as soon as we drove down the winery. Everything is well kept and looking beautiful. We had a seat next to a window so we could admire the lovely golf course. The food was delicious and loved the presentation of the dishes for some appetizers and pasta dish. Very professional. Prices are more than reasonable. Overall, it was a lovely night. Thank you so very much.

    Food and service was great. We were looking forward to lunch on the patio. Unfortunately, two selfish individuals decided to smoke cigars while sitting in the Muskoka chairs just off the patio. We had to move inside to escape the smell. A sign clearly states that people should go to the parking lot to smoke. If this isn’t changed we will not return.

    Definitely recommend that you go and have a meal at Rockway. We have been there in the past for a wedding, so I thought we would check it out for a birthday dinner. From our recollections, and other reviews, we thought it would be slightly more refined. The location is beautiful, and the view from the patio can't be beat. The menu was short, and pretty casual. The pecan and peach crusted baked Brie starter was delicious, but had not been baked long enough to even begin melting the cheese. Fish and chips and Cubano sandwich were good. It would be nice to see a steak, a chicken, and a fish dish added to the menu to compliment the more casual fair.

    Short staffed, waited along time for menus, we seated ourselves, food and drinks took forever. The nicer patio was closed and the other patio is terrible, feels like you're sitting in a garage with a bunch of people. It gets really noisy. The plus is the food and wine is good. We wouldn't go back.

    It was an interesting start. We had a 2:00 lunch reservation but it didn’t appear that they were expecting us as the restaurant was locked up, buggy and not set up for us. Thanks to Bonnie from the winery sales area who jumped into action and did what she could to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. The experience was longer then expected as the kitchen had to prep for us but in the end we enjoyed our time.

    Rockway VineyardsResponded on February 20, 2022Sorry you had a rocky start to your dinner. The poor weather had a direct impact on our restaurant staffing that day. We are pleased that you enjoyed the meal and hope you will come back again!

    The ambiance and the views were spectacular. The soup was great. Unfortunately, we got served with a set of two salads with hairs embedded in them. As much as I can say that it may be just a bad day for the restaurant, but with that kind of venue something like that should never happen. It just shatters the entire experience.

    Apparently they were closing the following week and had a VERY limited menu. There were wines on the menu they did not have, appetizers were not available, the entrée we went there to try was no longer available, no dessert at all. Wine came to the table already opened, server didn't pour it for us. She dropped it off and walked away. We ordered 1 bottle of wine and the server left without asking what else the other guests wanted to drink.

    The view of the golf course was pleasant enough. Though our table was directly under where the golf carts are stored. There wasn't much atmosphere and I think the dinning rooms needs to be updated or at least repainted.

    We were seated immediately and provided with the lunch menu. I found it amusing that there was one page of food but several of beverages. Wed each found a different item to try. I was offered the opportunity to switch my fries for a salad but was not told there was an additional $3 charge for the salad. Food arrived quickly as there was only one other table of diners there. We sampled Rockway wines as well. We weren't rushed and enjoyed watching the golfers from our window seat. Because there are so many fine restaurants in the area I might not choose Rockway when we visit the area but I would certainly recommend it to others. I am in a wheelchair and the facility is very accessible.

    Wines, red and white were not enjoyable. I had fish and chips, which came with a horrible tasting Cole slaw, and I couldn't even stab the chips with a fork, they were so hard. Ambience was non existent. Very cafeteria style dining room. The server did his best to make it better, and didn't charge me for my one glass of wine (which I didnt finish), but i will never return.

    Food was ok. Price was average. Flies were absolutely terrible! Waiter also forgot to input an order and it took an extra 20-30 minutes before it came out. The rest of us were done eating already. Would not recommend. Spend more money at a more reputable winery to have dinner. This was not worth it.

    Went for Mothers day. Great setting etc and service was good, but the food was terrible. crepes were dry (made days before they tasted like) The waffles were from a package, and the ham station?? Where was the actual Ham....just a person standing there with cut pieces in a tray already....the value was terrible in the end as the food experience was mediocre at best. Time to get a new chef!! We won't be returning as the more people we talk to they have had the same experience with the food. They need to change who is making the decisions for the buffet as it's clearly just a cost cutting one and it reflects poorly.
