Welcome to Mount Julian, serving 5, 7, or 9-course tasting menus with wine and beer pairings.

Our Chef plays here, using our farm , our forests, and the local farmers. Every dish, wine, spirit, and beer is carefully created or chosen to evoke a sense of time and place.

The place is Stoney Lake, surrounded by hundreds of acres of wildland, a paradise for foraging, small farming, and inspiration. The time is both 1874 and today. In 1874, The Inn at Mount Julian was built, becoming a well-respected respite for weary travelers. The food was well known to be “most satisfying” and “succulent,” with ingredients as fresh as they could make it north unless they were grown on the property.  This meant simple fare to fill the belly of the outdoorsman.

The Viamede family continues to build on this foundation. The pioneer spirit inspires us, but we have the benefit of electricity and refrigeration. Our philosophy that food is best eaten where it’s grown is complemented by the availability of flavours from around the world. Forest-to-table is not only our sourcing method but our way of life.

The chefs at Mount Julian change the menu as needed – some dishes remain unchanged for weeks, others change from day today. We cook the bounty of the time and place. But no matter when you come, you will have one of the greatest meals in Ontario.

Menu style

We offer 5, 7, or 9-course tasting menus.

  • 5 course – $110, pairing $55
  • 7 course – $130, pairing $65
  • 9 course – $150, pairing $75

Wine pairings vary by day, season, and bottle as well – most wines are hand-picked from Prince Edward County by GM Ben Samann. Many wines can only be sourced once, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
