Contemporary American
Taverns have had a constant important presence in American life since the late 1600's. Many of them, which were attached to inns, were opened as resting places for travelers needing a place to stop, relax and fortify themselves. Of course the local residents frequented the taverns too, purchasing drinks and meals as well as participating in lively conversations. Taverns were the focal point for neighbors to come together, exchange news, talk of politics, and share in the general feeling of conviviality. Taverns were firmly established as gathering places for the light hearted socializing, serious talk, and of course, a
hearty meal accompanied by a tasty libation or two.
In this American tradition, we at Mill’s Tavern welcome you with genuine enthusiasm. Our staff is warm, friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. So please come, relax, visit with friends and family. You will leave refreshed and nourished, body and soul.

Just a spectacular night at Mills. We ended up eating at the Bar, which was fantastic and the two Bartenders (Jess and Eric??) were fantastic. I had the waygu Strip and my husband was thrilled to see the Duck back on the menu for fall. It was spectacular in every way. (Ps. Please don’t remove the duck ever again). Great experience as always at Mills.

We were seated in the back room. Terrible ambiance while the rest of the restaurant sat empty. It was freeing. Bad spot.

Food took over an hour to come out and was extremely salty. Pathetic to pay over $200 for 2 people for that. Never going back again

The food was outstanding. Our waiter Tyler was attentive, knowledgeable, and always right on waters etc... the whole atmosphere was perfect and the food was delicious. We recommend the braised short ribs, the duck, and the lobster parpadelle. The deserts were fantastic. Five star all the way around!

We stumbled on your establishment 3 years ago during waterfires. We liked it so much we decided to go there for our anniversary, and celebrated our last 3 anniversaries there. We are going to be some friends there and also plan on celebrating our 40th anniversary there next year.
Our waiter Philip was excellent and he made our night very pleasant.
Keep up the great work.

Mills Tavern was highly recommended by a friend, our recommendation would be less enthusiastic.
The pluses: Valet parking; warm welcoming greeting as we entered the restaurant; a perfectly situated table for two; a clubby, relaxing, dark woods, high-ceilinged dining room; good music level for conversation; and, fabulous desserts

Service was polite and attentive

The Prix Fixe menu allowed us to sample different dishes on each course.
APPLAUSE - one starter, one main, and two desserts - The masa dusted Point Judith Calamari - with a subtle spice that builds softly during consumption; the fresh and flavorful oven roasted swordfish medallion with avocado rouille and sweet corn/black bean relish: the Portuguese bread pudding; and, the Madeira caramel with currents and Chantilly cream.
DISAPPOINTMENT - The Caesar salad was bland. It could have used more Parmesan and anchovies. The balsamic brined Kurobuta pork chop was quite chewy/tough and would not have been flavorful without the bacon hash.

We had planned to have the dinner with wine parings, but our waiter informed us that was just for restaurant week. He offered to check with his boss to see what accommodation could be made, but by that time we had an answer we had each settled on our preferred glass of wine.

Our take, is that we probably wouldn't drive the 40 miles to Providence for Mills Tavern again, so it would be a cautious recommendation.

The wait staff was great... was not worth the price. A bottle of wine (less than $100) and 4 meals as pushing $400 incl. tip, two of which were $40 prefix. Food was OK, table near a noisy staff area, on a Sunday nite........

Classic, almost formal decor with handsome wood accents. Convenient location, good valet parking. We were seated immediately on a Saturday night at 6:00 pm. Our waiter was awesome and super social. Food was very good, prices were what was expected. Good restaurant for a romantic date. We will likely go back in the near future...

Fantastic experience from the our server (ask for Nick) to incredible apps, impressive entries (my wife had the pork chop - tender and huge - and I had the ridiculously good lamb chops) closing with an outrageous dessert. We were celebrating our anniversary and Mills delivered!

The food was very good, as always, however it was extremely pricey. Have been to Mill’s Tavern on many occasions but do not recall ever having paid this much for the meals. The wait staff was very nice and professional, but the service was slow.

The food was great, the waitress was amazing but the food was SOOOOO overpriced. It was a good experience but I don't think we'll be eating there again because it's honestly just not worth it. Our bill was $200 and we were still hungry when we left and we had a 3 course meal each.
