Lovely choice for restaurant week; mills offered wider menu choices than many other restaurants. Also, our server Steve was excellent!

There were 7 of us at the table, and everyone agreed their meals were delicious. The young lady who served us was helpful and efficient. We all said we would certainly come back again.

The food was delicious but the staff struggled. It wasn’t just our table either. Everyone either waited long for meals or had issues with their tab.

Service was good but the food was surprisingly below average. Too many options in the Charleston area to dine at instead of wasting a night on an overpriced dinner at The Barbados room.

Service was average but food quality was poor and poor presentation. Crab was bad on crab cake benedict, lettuce was wilted. So typical of food served at a hotel. I’ll never go back. Never recommend it.

We had our wedding reception at The Mills House 10 years ago, so we wanted to be sure to visit again on our 10 year anniversary trip in June. We had a lovely brunch by the fountain (my French toast was fabulous). Shortly after we were seated the manager arrived with complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary (I had mentioned this when booking via Open Table). Both the manager and server were warm and helpful and the food was great. Love this place.

What a great lunch me and my wife had today! The food was outstanding, pastrami Rueben was soooo good! It was my wife’s birthday and the manager came out with 2 glasses of champagne at the end of our meal, on him to wish my wife a happy birthday asked to take a picture of us with our phone... you don’t see hospitality like that much anymore. Our waitress was very attentive and the dining room and courtyard is beautiful. Can’t wait to return!

Beautiful Mother's Day setting! Lovely buffet that covered brunch and lunch with fresh quality and constant monitoring of the food. I'm not normally big on buffet service but this was exceptional. Sat outside and was very comfortable and able to enjoy the classic Charleston hotel experience.

Group of 6 for Mother’s Day brunch. Food selection was great and there was no way we could possibly try everything offered. Seafood cold bar was a nice touch. Throughout the meal the kitchen managers were on top of making sure all the options were full.

Unfortunately, the service at our table was horrible. We had dirty plates sitting at the corner of our table for at least 10” before I moved them to the middle of our table for at least another 15”. As frustrating as this was, the hostess, presumed Manager and presumed lead Waiter were stationed within 10 ft of our table and walked by us 20+ times. I guess sitting people and ringing the register up for $75/head was more important than making sure their guests were satisfied.

I made a reservation for my daughter's college graduation brunch. I called to inquire if Saturday brunch was held and was confirmed. I made the reservation on Open Table. Our server was quite brusque when we arrived and were told there was no Saturday Brunch. No apology made for the miscommunication. We had a party of nine. The food was very slow to arrive and came out in a trickle one or two plates at a time. Of the nine diners, five individuals got the completely wrong item to eat and there was something missing or mixed up with the other four orders. The food was cold and unappetizing. The manager agreed to only accommodate the check partially. It was the worst dining experience I have ever had. DO NOT USE THIS RESTAURANT!

Be careful what you order. The crab Benedict sounds good, but is just poached eggs on crab without any sauce that would enhance the otherwise quite bland taste. The she crab soup was very good. Very good, friendly service.

Wife had salmon served on beets and cauliflower mousse-EXCELLENT.
I had grouper served in giant lima bean sauce with fennel marmalade-also EXCELLENT.
Nancy, our server was, you guessed it, EXCELLENT.
Chef is clever and inventive. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

They never should have taken ANY reservations near the end of the event if they had no intention of making sure the last reservations received the same fresh, complete menu as stated. Then because of the lack of food items that were picked over, my 2:45 seating and a 7 top that came in behind us, were screwed out of the always wonderful experience. I have taken my family there for 7 years. But that won't be happening again. The server Robin was exceptional as were her support staff, but in trying to make up for this fiasco, they over-served my husband martinis and he became inebriated, which made the rest of my Easter intolerable. This is in no way the normal reflection of this great hotel. But I would still recommend this establishment.

It may be good for regular dining, but the Easter buffet was embarrassingly inept. We arrived @215 and I had been assured by the person taking the reservation that they would not allow items to run out for the later seatings. This was not the case. We sat at a small cocktail table with staff running behind us on both sides. Larger tables just need to be cleaned. They were out of oysters and lamb, which was the reason we chose this buffet. Lamb came out later, and was raw except the outer most slices, so not enough to go around. Also, no sauces like au jus, chutney or mint to compliment the lamb, just some Dijon aioli which was gone and dried on the edges. It would have been better to have nothing than to present that. The salad bar had 2 dressings that were ranch type heavy offerings, no vinegrette anywhere. The sides were ok, but nothing noteworthy, just everyday local fare. The final blow was the dessert table. There were still many customers throughout the restaurant eating and talking. I could not believe the mess that was left by 300p. Someone, even if it wasn’t there job, should have come out, removed the majority of the plates and trays the had been picked over and cleaned up and reorganized the 3 things that were left into a less distressing display. Guests were making comments and jokes about how bad it was. We have never been this disappointed at a 75 dollar per person holiday buffet.

Brunch was $75 a person...seafood portion was set up in the sun. The food that was set up inside was cold. Bread was so hard my 6 year old wouldn’t eat it. All the desserts were store bought and not made in house. Total tourist trap!!!!

We have gone there for 5 Easter’s in a row....Has always been wonderful but this year the restaurant had made so many changes/cut backs that the experience was horrible. Always had unlimited mimosas now only get one complimentary drink..... buffet used to be Hugh now minimal with NO salad bar which used to take up about 30 feel. For 4 people bill was $347.00......the buffet was worth$25 at most!!! Would NOT recommend to others!!!!
