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.

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 ..

Hello Stephanie, I am sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We strive to give great service and food in a comfortable atmosphere. We do offer a $39.95 three course prix fixe menu on Thursdays and Sundays that offers great value. We have keep all of our menu prices the same or in some cases lower than pre-pandemic.

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!

They continue to wow us. After having to reschedule my 40th birthday dinner due to a shift in business hours as a result of the covid-19 "pause", we decided to celebrate a few days earlier. The food was fabulous as always and our server Jake was spot on. If you have something special to celebrate, this is your place. Consumate professionals!

Everything was fantastic. We ordered the swordfish and the shrimp linguine, and while both were outstanding the swordfish was incredible. Our appetizer was the calamari, which was also excellent and had a great fra diavolo sauce. Lynn, our amazing server, also brought a side spinach dish which was the best spinach side dish I ever had. It was cooked in a garlic oil/soy (or terriyaki?) sauce that I wanted to bottle and take home. Lynn couldn't have been a better server and made the entire experience wonderful.

This is my second time dining at Mill’s Tavern. I have said it before and after my second experience i double down even more...2 of the best meals and experiences I have had anywhere were at Mill’s. I am a huge foodie...i love food and culture of wide varieties, and i enjoy cooking and creating dishes a lot myself. I can be somewhat critical especially with my own food. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner and it was even better than my first experience. (Only due to the food we shared and decided on) She was blown away and i was as well with everything. Even with the limited menu due to covid. If you go here with a high end dinner in mind it will only exceed your expectations. It is not cheap (for some) items on the menu, but it is absolutely worth it. We went with the bone in 42oz tomahawk cut steak for 2...raw bar items, and calamari and some great cocktails and sides. Cant say enough about this place. Last year i went in April as well...they didnt skip a beat.

We usually dine with Samantha but she had the day off. Jake took great care of us! He clearly communicated all the special offerings and suggestions without hesitation and we enjoyed what seems to be the gold standard dining experience at this fine Restaurant. We loved the new lamb lollipop appetizer with cous cous and as usual, PEI and walrus and carpenter oysters... But last night we did not venture far from our usual Rib Eye for dinner, accompanied by the Mac'n cheese and asparagus sides. The new carrot cake for dessert was wonderful and delighted that they 86'd the traditional cream cheese frosting and it's replacements were much more to our liking! A quiet Sunday night ended with lovely espresso martinis and deep appreciation for the quality and care this restaurants team practices! Covid has changed allot and our patronage is rooted in wanting a touch of normalcy while nothing is normal for these service workers. That being said, you're still greeted with a smile, exceptional service and food to match! Thank you!
