For a memorable lunch or dinner be sure to visit this restaurant. The food is local the chef imaginative and the staff has always been very attentive and knowledgeable.
The setting is unique and adds to the enjoyment of dining out!

“Wonderful family celebration for approx 50 guests”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Attended a family event for my sister's special birthday. Arranged by my niece who lives out of town, it was lovely. My other sister arrived early to orchestrate the surprise and the staff were amazing and helped us pull it off. A beautiful setting, lovely decor. Food was very good ( as expected, I have eaten here before). I liked they were so flexible for my niece who organized it re: numbers and they didn't bat an eye to set up an extra table to accommodate a last minute seating request. They even made a special pizza for my niece who has allergies. Would definitely do an event here again and / or a meal.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

love the atmosphere. the staff is nice, very accomodating. Had a bridal shower for 50 guests that had a couple of cake glitches from an outside source but the co-ordinator managed to provide for 50 -on the spot - desserts and "fixed" the cake so it was not a disaster! Due to the stress involved I was provided with a lovely alcohol beveridge to get me through it all! Kudos to last minute disaster saves!!
Restaurant wise, the food is good, albeit fancy.

“Best Sunday Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The variety and freshness of the Mill's breakfast buffet can not be compared.
As the morning moves on the variety of meats and seafood increases.
If you're looking for a place with class and ambiance, this is it. The staff
is courteous. The water falls makes this place a great setting. We love Sunday mornings at the Old Mill.
