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.

The prix fixe meal was perfect for us as we didn’t have to think about which wine to pair our meals with. It was amazing.

We had a wonderful dinner last night. It was our second time here and once again it was a phenomenal meal. Our waiter was Phil and he was delightful! I tried one of the seasonal cocktails, the blackberry bramble. We shared the calamari, my husband ordered the filet and caesar salad, and I had the swordfish. Everything was excellent! Highly recommend Mill's Tavern for either a special occasion or a nice date night.

Found this restaurant while searching for the best restaurants in Providence. Not sure how this place rates as the "best" in any category. They should be arrested for charging $50 for an 8oz Filet that was bland and tough. It was obviously not a good quality filet. I know its been challenging for these places to get beef at a reasonable price so maybe thats the reason for the poor quality???? Not sure; but if so they shouldn't offer it. We also got Caesar salads, that had almost no dressing on it. So it was basically a dish of romaine. As for the bread....don't get me started. Not sure if it was from a package of grocery store sliced bread, but thats what it looked and tasted like. Our server, who was very pleasant, had to know we didn't like anything we ordered; and when removing my salad because I told her it had no dressing; should have removed it from my bill without me having to ask. If you want a good steak, Capital Grill is a solid bet, with much better atmosphere and service. At these prices, who wants to gamble?!

The steaks were 50/50 ...mine cooked perfect ...wife's was a charred mess. Extremely OVER priced. I understand it's fine dining but 2 steaks with mashed potatoes and asparagus and 3 scallops with a tomato salad should not be 200 bucks. It was our anniversary but even my son was like "pop....you could got that and more at capital grille" oh well YOLO If your dating this is definitely a spot to impress...but just way too much money for so little options ...I'll give it 3 out of 5. When it's over 200 bu KS for a 2 person dinner...the steaks should be absolutely perfect. The first time out. I also noticed the cooking staff was definitely on par with Texas roadhouse than a 5 star dining experience. I probably won't be back.

I invited my employees from work for a special dinner at Mills Tavern- and they did not disappoint! We ordered 2 Waygu 24 oz. steaks and some some great appetizers that our waitress Lynne suggested. We ordered wine that was unavailable but Lynne suggested something else that was awesome- We are looking forward to going back soon!

Lindsey (sorry if I misspelled that) was amazing. She was fun and attentive while also making sure she was not overbearing nor did we feel rushed. She made an excellent wine recommendation as the Malbec we had originally ordered was no longer available. Even through her mask you could tell she was smiling and a jovial person. She was an utter delight. The food and ambiance were perfect as always.

The food is still stellar, but the service at Mills Tavern has gone down a lot. Plate and cups were not cleared soon enough, and we had to repeatedly ask for water to be refilled. I don’t know if it’s lack of staff or training, but this was a different experience than what we were used to.

This was the first time my husband and I visited Mill’s Tavern. It was amazing. We felt very special because when I made the reservation, I wrote down that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. When we were seated, there was an anniversary card and confetti on the table waiting for us. What a great and unexpected touch. The food was terrific (although a bit pricey). The waiter was terrific, as were the staff who brought water and our salads. We even made new friends at the next table who made our meal so much more pleasant. They were so kind and even surprised us with dessert as our anniversary gift. Everyone was so terrific. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend. This was one of the nicest anniversaries yet (we are on year 22)!!! <3

Our experience at Mill's Tavern was nice, but not great. I found the food in general to be very salty. I ordered a filet mignon steak for $52 and it was a nice piece of meat and cooked well, but I couldn't finish it because it was too salty. However, my husband loved his meal (and mine --which he finished)! So it may have just been my palette. Overall, I felt a little sad about spending so much on a meal I didn't eat but at least my husband enjoyed it.

Some of the dishes were wonderful (pork porterhouse) and others a bit lackluster (salmon). Evened out to a good meal, but could use a bit more consistency throughout dishes.

Something for everyone with some interesting and tasty twists. Hard to find a fancy dessert these days but had one here! ( Was a little disappointed in the the tofu/ zucchini entre- sauce could have used more flavor and it might have been better offered as an app, though I appreciated the non meat option)

It was restaurant week so we decided to try it out. The special menu looked good and the food was all very flavorful. Noise level was lower than many restaurants even though it was pretty busy. Tables were spaced out pretty well.

Everything was great except the piped in music. Way TOO loud. This restaurant is noisy to start, add a loud sound system and conversing at the table is diffract best.
