We had a birthday celebration at The Old Mill Room with Sunday brunch and it was absolutely fabulous. They treated us so wonderfully with such politeness and A1 service. And the food was to die for. It is indeed a special place to have a celebration.

This was not a good night for the Old Mill Room. The service was simply poor. The fancy butter patties were frozen solid, so when trying to cut they shot on the floor. When we told someone about butter on the floor they cleaned it up, but didn't offer to replace it. They were slow to take order. They didn't bring a salad w/ dressing on the side. Took away the wrong one, and then never brought back a replacement w/o being asked to do so. Then we had to tell them that they were charging us less than half price.
I wasn't particularly excited about any of the courses I had on the restaurant week menu. Maybe this is what happens when you go to a restaurant shortly before they close for remodeling. Easily the worst dining experience that I have had at the Old Mill Room, which usually does an excellent job.

This was my first time at Boars Head and I was a little disappointed. The atmosphere was drab, the service was slow and the food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. During restaurant week you expect chefs to be showing off a little. This felt like going for Sunday dinner at the country club. Perhaps all of this was due to the fact that they will soon be closing for a major remodel but I don't think I would go back.

Restaurant week - atmosphere was very nice. The salad was average, salmon was excellent, dessert not the best-flourless tort was not as expected. I don’t know if I would go back for a meal at full price.

service was slow...not sure why there wasn't a fire in the fireplace at lunch...it would have added to the ambiance on a gray January day....the lunch was good ( soup and salad brunch) but not memorable..

I always enjoy dining at The Old Mill Room. The peanut soup is worth the price of the buffet for me. And the bread pudding is excellent.

My daughter and I had dinner at the Old Mill Room while staying at the Inn. It was first rate. Being a VERY cold winter time, the restaurant was not even close to being full. However, we never felt like they were anything other than delighted to have us there. We mentioned the cold, so they sat us right in front of the fireplace - wonderful atmosphere. Our server was kept busy with 5 tables during our meal, yet was excellent. He was the real deal and definitely knew what he was doing! The food was beautiful and well prepared, although I can’t say it was really fabulous. We had breakfast there as well, which we actually enjoyed even more than the dinner.

Overall a fabulous meal! Great service and food. Would definitely recommend for any special occasion. Only complaint is that we had requested a table by the fireplace that was not acknowledged.

Overall a great experience. Food & wine were excellent. Table service was great but the kitchen was slow even though it was not crowded when we arrived. One disappointment was that I requested a fireside table when I reserved months in advance but we were not seated there.

I had business lunch on Friday. I am not sure how menu differ between weekdays and weekend. The buffet menu was very limited, unless I missed some other setups. No salads. I recommend to review the menu before you go for the buffet.

The Old Mill Room is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Virginia. The atmosphere, the food, the service are all outstanding and have been so for the 40 years I've been going there.
My biggest complaint is that I don't get there often enough.
