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.

It had been awhile since our last visit. It was fantastic. The Wagyu beef was perfectly seared. The entire meal from oysters to Portuguese bread pudding was wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and engaging. Will be back again regularly now.

Ofcourse, it’s Valentine’s Day so I surprised my wife to dinner! I am happy bcos Lynne was our server and I have read so many great reviews about her well all I can say is they are definetely correct! She was a Star!!! We tried the Tomahawk Wagyu cooked medium, darnnn so great! Some part of the fats melts in my mouth. We tried the pudding and chocolate mousse tart. My wife and I prefer the pudding following trying both desserts. Def and highly recommend this place 😉

Had a porterhouse for two cooked medium and it was perfectly cooked! The asparagus I felt was undercooked. The chocolate dessert and bread pudding were less than impressive. Our wine which was kindly recommended by our waitress was superb. Our waitress was a sweet woman whom we both adored. The table was beautifully adorned for Valentine’s Day.

Overall I did not feel the value was there but I did enjoy it! The bill was just too high for those failures.

Whatever issues there were with Mill's Tavern that I read about in other Open Table reviews (mostly from 2019) have clearly been resolved, in my opinion. We went this past Saturday for our belated anniversary dinner, and every aspect of our visit was phenomenal. Our server, Tyler, was friendly, informative, prompt, courteous & accurate and made our evening comfortable & effortless. The ambience here is sooooo conducive to quiet conversation and a little romance - perfect atmosphere to celebrate our 27th anniversary.

It was the last evening of Restaurant Week (month!) and we decided to partake in that menu. I had the calamari appetizer, petite filet entrée, and bread pudding dessert. My husband had the butternut squash bisque as an appetizer, the Venison Pappardelle entrée and the bread pudding as well. Additionally, he decided to do the wine pairing with the meal and also started with some locally farmed oysters. We also ordered some brussels sprouts to share.

The calamari was tender and delightfully different being seasoned with lemongrass and greens (THANK GOD - NO MARINARA!); my husband's soup was well-seasoned, tasty and smooth and those oysters were eye-rolling delicious and gone in a second. He loved the (fresh) pappardelle/venison dish and found it to be savory and satisfying - nothing left in that plate! The brussels were cooked perfectly although I found them to be a tad bit heavy w/balsamic - delicious, nonetheless. My filet was perfectly "medium" as I requested. the accompanying potatoes very good as well.

The drinks were well balanced and I had the best pear martini I've ever had....my husband felt the wines were paired very well with each meal course and each one complemented & enhanced the food it was served with. Desserts were to die for!

Will definitely be back to Mill's for our next celebratory meal. The prices were fair for the level of serve & food quality, but our wallets can afford a meal like this only so often.

We had a fantastic evening! Our waitress and team that served us was personable, knowledgeable in the menu and did everything to make out night a great night.
The food was amazing, I hadn’t dinned at Mills in 5-6 years and it was as great as when it first opened. If you haven’t had dinner or lunch at Mill’s tavern, I would put it at the top of your list!

Perfect food as always. The prix fixe menu is excellent for the money. The service was great in the beginning but slow in second half . Waited a long time for a second drink to arrive after ordering and had to find someone to bring the check. What should have taken 2 hours took almost 3. It would be ok but we had a car and driver waiting and had to pay extra for the extra time. But it is my favorite restaurant for food and ambience Never a bad bite!

Went for restaurant week. Food was a fairly good value for the price point. Service was fairly subpar, however. The waitress was significantly more engaged with tables adjacent to ours and as a result there was just a little too much time between courses being served. Also waited about 15 minutes to just get our bill taken care of once it was left on the table.

We had a fantastic night at Mill's Tavern. All the credit to the chef with his delicious specials (butternut squash bisque!) and our wonderful server Samantha. She had great recommendations for us and guided us through our selections with her advice. It was absolutely frigid out, and with our table against the window ( wouldn't trade the view!), both Sam and the manager came by frequently to adjust the portable heater near us and make sure we were comfortable. After going to MT for years, we had a very unfortunate experience a year ago with both service and food. After last night, I wouldn't hesitate to go again and recommend it to friends!

We went to Mill's Tavern during COVID restaurant month because the special menu looked excellent. We started off with martinis and blue cheese olives which were excellent. We had calamari and Caesar salad for starters, filet and venison ragu for mains, and bread pudding and beet chocolate cake for dessert. We enjoyed a half price bottle of wine with the meal. Every dish was outstanding and we ate every bite. Our waitperson, Samantha, was outstanding. She was attentive without hovering and made us feel welcomed and safe.

We used to go to Mils tavern several times a Month but won’t be back ... so unfortunate ... we realize times are tough for restaurants but the dinner for 4 was $600 and the service was terrible! There was. Camera flashing on us while we ate ... we ordered raw bar and the shrimp were u16 and the Same price as the u8s they used to serve. Just poor all around food quality and experience ..

We have been going to Mills Tavern for years! Food is always excellent and fresh! However I was extremely disappointed at my dinner in 1/1/2021. I have the prefix menu. My calamari was oily and tasted like it was fried in old oil. My Salmon was good but the grits were lacking flavor. My husband had the shrimp cocktail which was fresh and delicious as always and the filet Mignon and he greatly enjoyed it. My son usually gets the Mac and cheese and also tasted oily and not as creamy as it usually is. I was very disappointed with my meal for the first time at Mills. Not sure if it’s due to covid but the has been the worse and only meal I’ve ever had at Mills. We did not complain to the waitress but big felt it needed to be said in hopes they are aware of my concerns so they can fix whatever the problem is so I can go back again some day!
