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.

Love Mill’s Tavern and always have a good experience. However this time the service was painfully slow. I believe there were too few waiters this evening. Food was not to their usual standard this evening.

My husband and I haven't been on a date in a while and we had such a great experience at Mill's Tavern. It was like our first date! The service was wonderful and the food was delicious, which made the night much more special.

Easter dinner with family we haven’t seen in a while. Everything was amazing. I’ve been here before a long time ago but forgotten how wonderful the food is! Look forward to celebrating there again soon. Food was amazing. My mother wants to take her boyfriend there now after her rave reviews. A bit of a drive but we’ll get them there. They love steak.

My wife and I had dinner on Tuesday and it was very nice. There were several menus to choose from and the wine list was large. Our server was very friendly and nice.

My wife loved her crab bisque and the petite filet. I ordered a Waygu NY Strip steak and it was tasty but not worth the cost ($17 more than the Black Angus NY Strip). The red Bliss mashed potatoes were delicious and very worth the $8 charge.

For dessert, we had a sorbet sampler and the 3 flavors were very good and refreshing.

Food was delicious, loved the calamari! It was a bit pricey but we expected that. $250 for 2 ppl including the tip, only 2 drinks total . The swordfish was the best ever & melted in my mouth. The Ribeye my husband had was a little above average, for $55 it should have been better than that. But the service , was the BEST SERVICE I’ve had in a restaurant in a very very long time! (PS. I’ve been a bartender my entire life )!Our waiter was absolutely amazing and went ABOVE & beyond! Thank you! He made our anniversary dinner so very special and the restaurant set our table up decorated for our anniversary with champagne too! That is service! We can’t thank you enough for exceeding our expectations! This was our first time here, definitely will be back! They were sooooo accommodating, we felt welcomed here and not rushed , even though we came at 9:15 for dinner . I can’t say enough wonderful things about this restaurant! Again, thank you Mills Tavern ! :)

Our 2nd time going and it did not disappoint. It was our anniversary and they had the table set up for it with a card and confetti, desert came, and with it had happy anniversary written on it and 2 complementary glasses of champagne. I did not ask nor expect any of that. While reserving on open table it asked if it was a special occasion which it was, but I never excepted any of that. Thank you Mills Tavern you definitely made our night special.

My boyfriend and I were sat right away and our waiter was excellent. Staff was patient in explaining all of the meals to us. I had the salmon and my boyfriend had the swordfish. This is our second time here and Mill’s Tavern never disappoints! It was so delicious. We also got Mac & cheese and asparagus as sides. To end the night we had the bread pudding to go. Everything was so great and we can’t wait to go back!!

Fantastic place that despite the pandemic and the myriad of regulation and changes that have had to occur has maintained its quality. Probably due in large part to the fantastic staff that returned and kept the expectations of quality and service that has always made them one of the most consistent places to get a high end dinner and fantastic steak.

Meal was delicious as always. During this pandemic, the service at the bar isn’t quite as friendly because it’s harder to communicate with the bartender.
The filet and ribeye were cooked to perfection. Always get a good meal

Had a wonderful time at Mill's Tavern--cheese board started was fabulous and was a true starter leaving plenty of room for our main courses! Salmon was delicious, and my husband enjoyed his steak and sides. Service was great--attentive but we never felt rushed. As someone who has been to maybe 3-4 indoor restaurants since COVID started, I felt very safe here (Feb 2021).

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.

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!
