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 had a “cousins meet-up” at Mills Tavern recently and the entire experience was outstanding. We had made a reservation for 6 people and when we arrived were seated immediately. From start to finish our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and engaging, without being intrusive. The menu has a great variety, so everyone found something of interest. We took advantage of Providence Restaurant Week and were offered a great value that included appetizer, main course and dessert for $34.95 excluding drinks.

All 6 of us enjoyed all 3 courses and there was not a morsel of food left on anyone’s plate. My wife has a dairy allergy and the kitchen made a special dessert for her to ensure she did not have any issues. When you combine a very well designed interior space with an open kitchen, great food and excellent service you have a winning combination. Mills Tavern you gave the cousins a very enjoyable night out!

We arrived for an early dinner and enjoyed a very pleasant evening of excellent food, service and atmosphere. The service pace was neither rushed nor delayed. Because it was a Sunday, the Champagne was 1/2 price so that was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend Mill’s Tavern to everyone looking for excellent food in a pleasant environment.

My mom and I went for restaurant week on Friday night. Was great! Service was slow at some points- by the time we got our first course we had already finished the wine tasting that was supposed to go with it, so we had to order full glasses and spend more money than we ultimately had planned to. We ordered a side of butternut squash risotto and it was to DIE for. The flavors were amazing. Bread pudding at the end was also phenomenal.

Thanks Mills for an amazing meal!

We dined here based on the great reviews. It started a little bumpy when we were seated and waited almost 5 minutes for the waitress to introduce herself. The table next us were seated after us and their waitress took their drinks order before ours even came to our table. Then when she took our order, I had to ask her about the specials I heard the other waitress telling the table next to us. Bizarre.
Our meals were good but nothing great. I had a really good salad followed by overdone swordfish with delicious root vegetables. The chocolate mousse dessert was far better than the dinner. I wouldn’t go back unless it was for dessert.

I ordered a bottle of wine but when the waiter poured it to taste he poured it for the man at the table. Then I ordered pappardelle pasta and instead of telling me ahead of time that they had run out, they just brought me another type of pasta, which wasn’t even cooked all the way. The dessert was really good though.

The food was delicious. Calamari had a different twist very good. The wagu rib-eye for two was best steak I ever had. Our party of four got different desserts and shared them all. The pastry chef is amazing. Each dessert was fabulous.

Excellent all around.

Very fresh oysters, little necks, and shrimp. Charcuterie board selections and condiments were fabulous. Great steaks. Brussels sprout grilled side is marvelous. The adffogato desert is beyond belief excellent.

We went here with some friends last summer and had a phenomenal experience. This time, not so much. The food was just all very average (and overpriced). The caesar salad was dry and plain, my wife got the pork chop and I got the Short Rib. Both were just mediocre. The service was painfully slow however the waitress was extremely nice. Maybe they were understaffed? We were excited to return here for our second visit but considering the wildly inconsistent experience, I don't think we will be returning.

We were in the area visiting Brown and a friend told us about Mills Tavern. Very beautiful place. The food was amazing, we had the calamari(a different spin on it), ceviche was surprisingly delightful, oysters(some of the best I’ve had in a long time) and and the tomahawk wagyu(cooked to perfection) with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Service was great. Definitely will be back.

The food and wine were outstanding, the service professional and friendly. Everything was delicious. If they offer risotto, don’t pass it up. That also goes for the prime rib and the rosemary cake. Try the wine flights too.

It was a great evening. Macaroni and cheese out of this world. Two people had filet mignon and one had a strip steak. All enjoyed their steaks. The only negative comment would be I had a rib eye that was a bit fatty. Still not bad. The waiter/ bartender was great and overall experience five stars. This was our first time visiting and will certainly be back. Special thanks to Paul Conforti.

We went for New Year’s Eve. The waiter was attentive and very good. He offered suggestions of wine and food. That’s where the good part ended. We ordered calamari for an app. The WHOLE app was fried, even the peppers. It was just an overload of fat and oil. Nothing to balance the flavors. Our entrees came. I ordered the steak and my wife, chicken. My steak was cooked medium, I ordered medium rare. The Mac and cheese side was so salty I couldn’t even eat it all. My wife’s chicken skin was not crispy and the confit leg was also ridiculously salty. That was almost inedible. For the price they charge, I expect more. We left disappointed and probably won’t go back

Bartender-awesome
Food-outstanding
Service-not good
Server was not experienced or engaged. Took order and checked on food once. Never brought bread. Never filled water. Waited 20 minutes to have table cleared. Manager provided a gift certificate for next visit and was appreciative of our willingness to share.
Spent $200.00 on food, $38.00 on pre dinner drinks, and $140.00 on wine for two people. For spending nearly $400.00 the service would have been better at a fast food restaurant.

Magical evening. 5 days before Christmas the vibe was celebratory complete with carolers in period dress. Tyler our server was patient,engaging,fun and competent. The food was fantastic. We started with oysters and martinis, rabbit porchetta and calamari. Then there was wayggu beef and duck. Broccoli and miso butter? I am so making that next!! Will definitely be back!!

We were a party of 13 out for a festive office dinner. Even with this large table and a full restaurant, the waitstaff and kitchen did a fantastic job timing everyone’s selections, from appetizers through dessert. The food was outstanding and some impromptu carolers were the frosting on a fabulous evening at Mill’s Tavern!

As always the Mills Tavern experience was fantastic. We were celebrating a birthday. I asked for a window table it was a great view but a little chilly. We were promptly moved to another table in the center of the room and all was fine. There were four of us and we had both steak and seafood entries all delicious. From the valet to the deserts everything was fantastic.

Food was excellent - I don’t like when it’s too noisy, and we were lucky to be sat in a nice private spot that was quiet, a table between a big column and the front window. Had salmon and it was really nicely cooked.

Everything thing was great - food, server and ambiance, but I will echo what others say in their reviews and that is that the entrees and dessert both took longer than normal to come out. My mom’s Birthday was recognized which was a wonderful gesture but I feel like we were at the restaurant for a very long time.

We ordered the prix fixe menu and wine pairing. Our server forgot about the wine pairing and instead of just going with the entree wine and meal pairing and making taking off the starter, he gave us all three wines at once. He didn’t even tell us what wine we were having and obviously didn’t pair with any food. I’ve never had a bad experience at Mills but this was disappointing. He didn’t really apologize and made a joke that we “had the bar working hard”.

There were 4 of us on a Saturday night at 7:00 it literally took 15 minutes after we sat to get noticed by our server, it then took 10 more minutes to receive our drinks, BTW the server couldn't handle 4 drinks on the same tray, it took 2 trips. Turkey flatbread for the table was outstanding. Dinners also outstanding.
Dessert was good, unfortunately dessert came so far out after the coffee was served that the coffee was cold. Oh yeah, and our attentive server, was not around until the check came, we did want to have more beverages, really hurt his tip. it is true- BAD SERVICE CAN RUIN A GREAT MEAL, worst part is, I sent an email to the restaurant, and got no response. Give a mom and pop place your hard earned money.

We love Mills and will definitely return, but for some reason the service was very slow the night we were there and it took quite awhile before we received our entree. Food was excellent as usual.
