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.

Our experience at Mills Tavern was wonderful as usual. We always time our visits around their seasonal menu change, and the asparagus salad, with salmon and skate for our entrees were terrific. We always have Lynne take care of us, and she makes the experience special

What can I say? Impressed. I asked for a quiet table, I got it. I hoped for world-class cuisine, I got that too. My wait staff (Hannah G.) was as professional as I could’ve hoped. The experience overall - a 10. Why did I wait so long to go in? Will DEFINITELY be back!

Made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and he had been looking forward to it all week! Our experience did not disappoint -- the food was fantastic, the service was warm and accommodating, and the wine selection was impressive. Thank you Katie B for making our night so special!

Food was good but the service was a bit slow--the waiter was extremely helpful and courteous! Slightly disappointed in the Easter Ham that I ordered: it appeared to be spiral cut and, as a result, was a bit dry--I expected more of a "ham steak", since it was not listed as "spiral cut" on the menu. Since we drove an hour to meet family for this meal, I would probably not return; but I would recommend the restaurant for local dining.

People where great. I had lamb and it had several thin slices like roast beef. I would have preferred a thick slice off the bone. But same amount. Sauce was great.

Amazing experience! We celebrated my husbands birthday and enjoyed a fantastic meal with wine. Everything was cooked perfectly, great flavor balances, really really solid meal. The service was great too- Nick was our waiter and he was super nice and personable! Hard to find an independent, classic steak restaurant that incorporates seasonal touches. Loved our dinner and experience- we’ll be back and definitely recommending to friends and family!

This restaurant is one of the best in Providence. While it's not cheap (a good thing as fewer locals will be about), the food is outstanding. The prix fixe menu seemed like a very good value, three courses for $30. There are a number of varied options, if you have a party that cannot decide on fish or steak, this is the place to go. The filet was outstanding, if you order it medium rare it will melt in your mouth, practically no need to even chew. The drinks were very different but also tasted great. The wine list was not extensive but there were enough options at each price point so that anyone should be sufficiently satisfied.

The waitstaff does a great job. There was a mix-up at first and out waitress took a bit to come find us. They gave us each a free glass of sparkling wine as an apology (something I thought was wholly unnecessary but much appreciated). Excepting that slight incident, the service was great and I do not think it reduced the experience at all.

Overall, if you are in Providence and are looking for a great place to have dinner, this should be high on your list.

This was my third or fourth visit to this restaurant which was one of my favorites. This time, however, I was not as impressed. We were seated on the bar side of the restaurant which did not have quite the same ambiance. It seems like the waiters took the service a little more casually here as well. the food delivery was a little slipshod, they brought all our appetizers and my husband's salad at the same time instead of spacing appetizers, salad and then main course. I ordered halibut which was served a little on the lukewarm side. Overall, a nice meal but not up to the quality of service and food preparation I had experienced in my last visits.

Have long been a patron of Mills Tavern, and Saturday evening's dinner was another excellent meal that already has us discussing our next opportunity for a night out.

We sampled local oysters from the raw bar menu, paired that with tiger shrimp as well as the lobster cocktail. With some handcrafted beverages by their side, the appetizer course set the tone for an excellent meal.

For main courses, my wife chose the Niman Range Ribeye while I opted for the halibut. Both were incredibly well seasoned, tender and expertly seasoned. While we also added brussel sprouts for the table, the malanga rosti stood out as the best accompaniment on our plates. Absolutely amazing and delicious.

I've been living in PVD for three years and never tried Mills Tavern (speaks to the variety around here).

It's honestly one of the best restaurants I've been to. The wood burning stove left an amazing flavor/crunch on my lady's steak, and my king salmon truly was the KING.

Phil was FANTASTIC, ask for Phil. The young hostess with the braided hair was very charming as well (missed her name).

Swordfish and petite filet were awesome, along with, of course, french fries. A couple of Tito's Martini's for the LOVERR and we were off to the Big Game.

We showed up on time for our reservation, but never got seated until an hour later ! Then we waited over an hour for our food ! My food was spectacular, but my wife's steak was cold - My guess is they forgot to cook mine, and hers sat there for a long time while they rushed to cook mine - When my wife told the waitress her steak was cold, she scraped it offer her plate and brought it back to reheat it - In the process of scraping the steak off her plate, she evidently spilled some of the food right into my wife's expensive pocket book !!!! Now it smells of garlic, onions or something like that - We did not notice the pocket book fiasco until after we got home when my wife stuck her hand into the pocket book and got food all over here hands - Total disaster - I've been to this restaurant approximately 15 times, all were great experiences, but for the last 3 0- They have been pretty bad - The prior problems were - 1 - They lost a $ 50 gift card, so we had to come up with more money 2 - Just bad service - Inattentive waiter - Etc......... 3 strikes and you're out as the umpires says -I won't be going back for sometime - In this most recent incident, I found the bartender to be totally inattentive to my wife and I - We sat at the bar for an hour and would not have been asked if we wanted a drink if I hadn't essentially flagged him down like one flags down a cab

I had to send my steak back because it was significantly not "rare"; be careful when ordering. I've had to do this before at Mill's Tavern, so it must be an ongoing problem in the kitchen.

I came here for a birthday dinner with a few friends. Everyone was very disappointed with the food. The salads had an odd savory taste, the steak was overdone, and the gnocchi was just not prepared well. We really wanted to like the food but it just wasn't quiet right.

Food was EXCELLENT... I am a person who never orders or even cares for deserts, but I tasted 2 desserts here and they were magnificent, I would come back just for a desert night. The food in general was all GREAT. The only draw back for the evening, was our waiter who wasn't awful she was just fair. Not attentive, and didn't communicate w/ us. We had long waits for bread and drinks.
