  • More than Beer & Brats!
    BobbyVIP
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We wanted early Saturday dinner in Poughkeepsie and so booked a 4pm reservation. It wasn't busy when we walked in, but it was packed in an hour and we were so glad to be sitting in our half-circle booth! We filled up primarily on meat options, but there are fish and vegetarian choices on the menu. We downed flights of micro-brew samplers and wished we could have remained at our table for a few more hours! More than Beer & Brats, the sausage and beverage selections are so broad that one visit fairly begs for another. Carol W was our cheerful and efficient waitress. Set in a charming old brick building with some modern enhancements, offering plentiful parking and food and some patio tables, we highly recommend this fun and casual restaurant.

    Pricey for the menu and location but a cool place. Small serving sizes. Had the fried oysters app-a little undercooked. Entrees we had included $16 for a good but very small serving of kielbasa and $28 for a very fatty short rib special. Food was ok-nothing to rave about. Good beer menu. Getting served was slow (it was crowded), yet then they were bussing our table while we were still eating. Desserts were $7 (fine) and kids meals $12 (ridiculous).

    Mill House Brewing Company presents an impressive list of beers, which were cheerfully described by our waitress. My table mates enjoyed their beers, and my cocktail was quite tasty, as well. Food was well prepared, came out incredibly quickly, and portions were quite generous. Everyone loved their food--pizzas and pulled pork sandwiches, accompanied by home made kettle chips. Would definitely return.

    This brew house opened in November 2013 and we just discovered it. Celebrated our son's birthday and had a great meal with house-brewed beer that was delicious! Upstairs is too noisy for conversation -- needs something to absorb the wood, brick & beams, but the downstairs and outside patio worked well. Great service, too. A real find!

    Had nice service, didn't quite understand the greeting at the front entry. We were a early (20 minutes or so) and we were told we would get seated at the time of our reservation despite the fact that the table we were seated at eventually and every table around it were all empty. I guess don't be early must be the message being conveyed by the desk, not the friendliest.. We had a great server, very efficient and friendly. Food was ok, the drip from the ceiling on the floor next to the table was not such a nice addition to the dinner and the staff did their best to keep it mopped up and safe. Not the best dinner we've had here.

    On the road and looking for a great place to eat? If you like ribs and beer, we can heartily recommend Mill House Brewing Company. Other menu items are good, too, at this casual well-run dining spot. On a Thursday night in August, it was packed. Very popular. Once the area colleges are back in session, you really must need a reservation!

The white pizza was out of the world and the the beer list had a good listing. As for the deserts, we shared the banana cream pie, just wonderful.

    This was my 4th time at the Mill House and I was truly disappointed. the previous times we loved it. The food the servers and the atmosphere. this time was completely different! I requested to eat on the main floor when I made my reservation. When we arrived they put us on the third floor and it was horrible. It was hot and the sun was coming through the windows and there was no shades. The waitress was hurried and unfriendly. The food came out miss timed. We had a party of six adults and she brought out dinners when we were still eating appetizers. Also there was little kids running all around during our meal which would have been fine if we had ,had kids but we just wanted a nice time out without the kids

    This was my second time here and nothing like the first. We were on the third floor with only about 30 people (not in our party). It was so loud we had to yell to be heard. We were all given extremely warm glasses of water with no ice. The red wine was so warm. The food was ok...The pizza and kielbasa was good but the salmon was not cooked to the requested medium rare and the potato gratin was cold and not very good.

    My son and fiance treated me to Father's Day at the Mill House. It was indeed a treat. Food and beer were top shelf. We had such a great time that I brought my wife for our anniversary after reservations at another establishment fell through. My wife and I had a fantastic time. The bourbon cocktails were very tasty and refreshing, perfectly balanced. Food was original and delicious The Mill House Brewing Company is a keeper and even though its a bit of a drive for us , we'll be back.

    First and foremost...The food was excellent. The choices were plentiful and all sounded wonderful. The beer was also excellent. We decided on two appetizers and the charcuterie "antipasta" platter, before our entrees. In most fine dining establishments we are accustomed to enjoying the appetizers and charcurerie platter separately, to fully enjoy the different tastes and in order to enjoy hot appetizers hot. They were both presented together, which also could have been OK. As a hungry family, we don't require a long time to devour good food. Unfortunately, however, we were only half way done with the apps and charcuterie....when our dinner arrived. Then when we were done, we had to wait anyway because of a problem with the computer system.

    First time at MHBC. The service was not good (trying not to say terrible). Waited 20 minutes for water, another 15 for menus, and another 15 or so for drinks. Was there almost an hour before ordering food. Three waiters walked by us, waved at us, asked how we were but provided no service (eg. they would ask how we were, would respond that we would like drinks, the server would walk away and not return). Very odd. The menu is very interesting with lots of different sausages (made on site), beers and pizzas. Had the lamb appetizer, "fig and pig" pizza, kielbasa, and chocolate cake dessert. All were very good.

    Highly recommended from a couple of family members so we gave it a shot. The restaurant seems misplaced in Poughkeepsie but aside from that no major complaints. It also doesn't seem favorable for kids- no kids placemats to color or anything like that. The food was great and the service was fast! We had the soft pretzels, and deviled eggs to start. The kids had kids cheeseburger ($12) and chicken fingers ($12) good food but def overpriced by $6 each. My wife had the American burger and I had the porky burger based on the waiters strong recommendations. He nailed it! We will be back for sure.

    To be honest,I petitioned my family to visit so that I could sample the beer! Good variety in the Flight and they were actually at the right temperatures. The Dining Room menu is more high-end than the usual "pub grub" (although they have some intriguing items on the Pub Menu downstairs). If you happen to love good, local, beer and creative cuisine you can't go wrong.
