OMT Hospitality COVID-19 statement:

To our loyal customers and guests:

What does getting the green light for Stage 3 mean – Saturday August 1 – for Old Mill Toronto Hospitality?   At the highest level, it means keeping our staff and our guests safe as we (slowly and cautiously) open our doors to welcome you back.  We missed you.  We’re all smiling under our masks.

We thank you for supporting us during Stage 2 with our little hidden oasis of tranquility called the Terrace Patio.  Tucked away from the bustling city, yet in the heart of the city, is our Smokehouse BBQ Patio – yummy creations and a fun bar – perfect for summer.  We continue to be open (please check the ‘Dining’ section for hours).

On Saturday August 1, 2020, we will be opening for Stage 3…carefully and thoughtfully to ensure the continued safety of all.

Our Dining Room will be open for indoor seating (please specify Patio or Indoor Dining when booking).  Hours of seating are identical to Patio seating:  Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 4PM – 10PM and Saturday/Sunday 1PM – 10PM.  Our menu will be the same as the Smokehouse BBQ menu (for the time being).  Seating’s will be done with strict adherence to Municipal by-law requirements, including asking screening covid questions at time of booking and at time of seating and collecting contact information.  Mask wearing is a must in our public indoor areas.  We will continue with all the safety protocols we’ve been using including one-touch menus, enhanced cleaning protocols, cutlery rollups, one-use disposable plating, and more.  Please use OPENTABLE to make reservations or call Dining Room Reception @ 416-207-2020 during the following times: 3PM – 8PM on Wednesdays/Thursdays/Fridays and Noon – 8PM on Saturdays and Sundays.  All other times please leave a message and we will get back to you soon.  You may also email us @ and we will respond during the Reception hours listed above.

Also, we’re happy to announce that our Event Venue will also be open for your corporate meetings, weddings and all social activities for groups of 50 or less.  The same level of safety and adherence will be applied.  The phone has been ringing off the hook – thank you – bear with us as we gear up in our Event Venue area.  For any questions you may have about bookings for our Banquet Rooms, kindly email or call (416) 236 – 2641 ext. 0. Our office hours have be modified to Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm

This weekend marks a special weekend for us – it’s our 106th  birthday !  Did you know that we opened on the first day of World War 1?  Yes, our Tea Room opened on that day, and together we have survived wars, Hurricane Hazel, SARS, hydro outages, rain storms… together, with patience and fortitude, we will get through this…  Join us in the Patio or Dining Room this weekend for our special drinks commemorating our birthday :  the ‘1914’ or ‘Cheers to Us’ and the tasty ‘106 years young’.

We are part of your community and we are grateful for the trust that our customers, guests and employees have placed in us for decades.  We look forward to welcoming you back.

As events unfold, please check our website for updates.
