My daughter and I went for a nice Saturday evening meal. The Compass Restaurant met all our expectations and more. The service was great and the decor was great. Keep up the good work.

Ate twice at Compass Bar and Grill during a couple of days of meetings at Deerhurst recently. On the first day I had the lamb, which was excellent, on day two I had the salmon, also very nice. Both days I had the Muskoka Cream Ale, and it was excellent. Service was excellent

Honestly we were expecting overpriced mediocre food and while it was a bit pricey it was well worth the cost. We should have eaten there each night.

We'd love to extend our gratitude to the chefs for the great food but our server seemed very miserable like she didn't want to be there. Her people skills are something that need a lot of work, she didn't make us feel welcome and more like she wanted us gone the minute we got there.

We received a voucher which offset the priciness but overall dinner was okay. My husband had the braised beef which was fall off the one. I had the salmon which was dry I didn't really enjoy it. Soup and salad were okay and dessert was also okay. We had a bottle of wine as well and it was good.

Our family stayed at Deerhurst for a long weekend, and our first dining experience started at Compass. The food was GREAT, and the price was very in-line with the quality of food. Our server was pleasant, and the atmosphere was nice.

Very friendly waiter and accommodating to find a spot for a larger group of people. A little cool and draft to sit in this area.

Wow, the last time we went in February 2016 it was great, food was great the view is 100% better than the Maple Pub in lower level, we ate only once here, as with the Maple Pub back open, it seems management thinks eating at the Pub which has terrible views and hardly no windows to look out at Deerhurst...
