We were visiting family in St. Thomas and wanted to try pickerel and perch before returning home to BC. My aunt recommended the Mill Tales Inn and we're really glad she did. When we arrived, we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, which we felt was reasonable. The service was good, and our waitress very accommodating. Pig tails were the special that night. My husband was intrigued and inquired about them, but was told they were a ``meal``. We ordered the fish (pickerel and perch) which was excellent, and when my husband asked if he could just have a ``sample`` of the pig tail, the waitress very pleasantly brought him one to try. The food was delicious; however, we were disappointed that they didn`t have pie, which is reputed to be excellent. After reading the negative reviews about the service, I have to say that we had a good experience in that regard, but perhaps the problem is that the restaurant is understaffed and has difficulty accommodating large groups. Our party of three was treated well and we had no complaints.
