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.

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.

We had a 7pm reservation for 3 people we sat right away but we weren't offered water for over a half hour. That should have been a big indication of the night to come. We didn't get appetizers until 8:45 and dinner at 9:30. We weren't checked on at all in between those times to ask if we wanted more to drink or anything. I was extremely disappointed with the service and I will not be returning. The food was good but not worth the poor service.

The service was outstanding in every way, and the food superb. We ate outdoors which turned out to be very loud because of traffic on North Main, but that can't be helped. Wonderful evening.

Wonderful food but VERY expensive. Sat at bar which was a mistake - poor service from bartender and so-so scene. Never rcvd silverware, napkin, etc until specifically asked for. No rolls, etc although others had both and a place mat which we did not ever have. Place seems an old retreat that has and will continue to lose it's luster. Will not endeavor to return.

Great steaks and other dishes. The scallops were a bit small and salty. Would go back again even though it is not cheap. Steaks were $50+ without sides.

Server was overly perky and was slow. No water refill until i asked. Never asked how meals were. Took forever to ask if we were finished/want dessert or check. Once check given took more time to get it and bring back. Restaurant is over rated. Food no better than other RI restaurants and a lot more expensive Small piece of swordfish with some lettuce - everything ala cart. Won’t go back.

The food was incredible. I am definitely bringing my boyfriend and his family back there again for my birthday next month. We didn’t order drinks but we spent over $200 and we had to wait to have our non alcoholic drinks filled throughout the evening. It was the only sore spot of an otherwise great dining experience.

Atmosphere was great beautiful restaurant but just not worth the price we paid for the meal and it wasn’t hard to get reservations and it wasn’t that busy in there so I see why now.

I get the ribeye every time, never disappoints, very consistent with the way its prepared and served. All-around one of my favorite go-to spots in PVD. Service is excellent. Desserts never disappoint. Cocktails are underrated and are some of the best the city has to offer.

I love Mills Tavern. It is my go-to place and I eat there at least once per month. In my last visit, the prix fix menu (on a Tuesday) was 2/3 sold out by 7:30pm. So I had to spend twice as much. That was disappointing. My rib eye (ordered a medium) was overcooked and salty. Staff is always great, hosts were welcoming, calamari was amazing. Post pandemic, the place was packed but there was plenty of room at the bar. My reservation was on time. Overall a great place.

My husband and I chose Mill’s for our first dining experience since the pandemic began. Food was great! They had fois gras, my favorite, as an appetizer special. Rack of lamb, delicious. Bartender was attentive and made a killer cosmo. Will go back for sure.
