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.

Mill's Tavern had been on the list to check out ever since we moved to the area. Although the food was excellent and the server was extremely polite, the overall experience was a 2 out of 10. On Mother's Day, you would expect a restaurant to have more than pasta with butter for kids. With that said, we were ok with it. The issue was the time between our salads and main course was over 45min. Being at a table with a 5yr old and a 6yr old definitely enhanced the situation, but to receive our salads and fires for the kids at 12:45 and not receive our main courses until AFTER 1:30 is just unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber. The Server was very apologetic and the manager even came over and apologized. Both were great, but the only a free desert for the length of time was just not ok. We will try it again without kids, but just a very bad 1st impression.

Steak was average at best and special Portuguese Bread Pudding ... had the accompanying cream to be not up to traditional standards.

Lynn as server is always First Class.

Well, I would've given 5 stars except for the fact that my reservation was a bit messed up. I had made the reservation for 2 people. On that day I called Mills Tavern to ask if we could add two more on to the reservation because it was our anniversary. The woman said No that they were full. I have never ever been turned down by restaurant for this request, but I get it since we are still in a bit of a pandemic. I requested they call me if they had a last minute cancellation. We were disappointed but understood. We show up at the restaurant and they said they had the table ready and it was for a party of 4. When I explained that they had turned down my request, the woman said that they tried to call me, which was a blatant lie because I received no missed calls or messages and my phone is extremely reliable because I use it for business calls. So the whole time our close friends could have joined us for our special night but no one bothered to follow up. This kind of put a damper on the evening but the food and service were excellent!

Ate at the bar and the bartender was excellent, great service, very good drinks and personable. The food was very good, rack of lamb was done perfectly. Two exceptions: the crab bisque was served lukewarm, barely above room temp, and my wife's tuna was overdone and a bit dry.

When we made the reservation I made it known of our allergies but the waiter, though was very pleasant, was unaware and served us bread with sesame seeds. From the onset, I would think that such a fine dining establishment would pass along the information seamlessly. We ordered from the prix-fixe menu, the 24 oz wagyu NY strip steak for two. We were not impressed. It was cooked perfectly but there were many parts that were tough. We did not enjoy the hype of this cut of meat. We also partook of the wine pairing, but a few of the wines we were served did not follow what was on the menu. To end the evening the desserts and the port pairing was delicious. In summary, we much prefer Red Strip, their sister restaurant, over Mills Tavern.

I experienced Mills Tavern for the first time two months ago, and with friends in town for this past weekend I was eager to share this gem with them. Not only is the food of excellent quality, but they could not have been more accomodating for a gluten allergy in the party. Social distancing is well-handled too. Dining there has been a wonderful experience and I will definitely be back soon.

Service was very poor and we left before ordering dessert even though we were celebrating a birthday. Our waitress never came back after dropping off our food. Dirty plates were left on the table for 30 minutes with no effort to clear them or offer dessert.

I love Mill St. sadly the quality has gone down. It was extremely noisy as music was on very loud. The waiter was annoyed that we didn’t order appetizers or desert. So I felt bad and ordered wine I didn’t want to order because he seemed to want to beef up the check. Makes me sad because I love this place and was looking forward to going. Hope that isn’t the norm there.

My wife and I went to Mill's Tavern to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant has clearly been made as Covid protective as possible. The tables were comfortably separated and there were dividers between tables to protect the patrons. The service we received was excellent as was the food. I highly recommend Mill's Tavern for a special occasion as well as everyday dining.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Mills Tavern- it was our first time back in a year, we felt very safe, the tables were well spaced and the menu was great! Our waitress Lynne helped us decide on our dinner choices- she was excellent, professional but not overbearing and timed every course perfectly. We can't wait to go back. Lynne even brought over complimentary champagne to help us celebrate our anniversary- nice touch!

We came in for a birthday dinner and everything was fantastic. It was quiet for a weekend but that's to be expected during COVID times. The staff were friendly and our waitress was very attentive. The food itself was all well prepared and cooked perfectly. I would definitely come here again next time I'm in Providence.

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.
