One of our top three restaurants in all of central PA. Out of five stars we give it a 10. Appetizers are amazing and entrees are stunning and always changing. Farm to table at its finest. Service and ambiance can’t be beat. Kudos Brandon and Lawrence…

It was an evening to celebrate the birthday of three good friends and of course a holiday celebration. We traveled a distance to celebrate at this restaurant and it was worth every mile.
The food was superb, service outstanding and this quaint restaurant is worth a visit.
We were taken in a tour to see the different rooms you can enjoy a meal u
In. Gorgeous!!!!
We will return and looking forward to it!

Ordered the same special: oyster stew with fried soft shell crab. Two weeks ago it was superb. Tonight it was terrible. Taste was off. Feels like ingredients were thrown together at the last minute. What was worse was that there were multiple pieces of oyster shell in the stew, some were near the size of a quarter! I was worried about biting into something that would ruin my teeth! Terrible experience! The waitress did apologize and take it off the check. No manager stopped by, and they did not do anything to show effort of trying to salvage a ruined dining experience. Dangerous kitchen. Not worth the risk! How can they allow big pieces of oyster shell in the stew?

The closest thing to a fine foods restaurant in the area. Beautifully decorated historic building. Very creative gourmet menu with an emphasis on local foods. The beef tenderloin tartare was a masterpiece. The cod with lobster risotto was disappointing (cod was overcooked and dried out). We both agreed we wouldn't order that again. Staff was working very hard to create a classy dining experience, but still had a way to go. Overall, we'd come again and try some of the other offerings (and more tartare).

Always love the good food and accommodating hospitality of the GMRI. The entrees are imaginative, they bent over backwards for some dietary needs in our party, and I even liked the music, both on the box and over at the live jazz piano.

Best filet mignon ever! The Portuguese seafood stew was excellent as well. We also shared the pumpkin layer cake with luscious icing.

If you are looking for a romantic dinner with great ambiance, this is the place. The small rooms were decorated for the Holidays, as we stayed at the Inn over Thanksgiving. There was also a piano player who entertained everyone. Don't pass this place up.

This was an outstanding experience Sue our server was fabulous and very knowledgeable of the history of the mill. The food was perfectly cooked and presented. The ambience was tremendous with the water feature and backed by a pianist that played perfect dining music. This has to be in my top 5 nationally and thee top here locally.

Our waiter was wonderful, but the kitchen was obviously short staffed. We waited an hour for our entrees. There was an event on the 2nd level which may have contributed to the backlog in the kitchen - but management should take this into consideration when determining available reservation times.

We were very pleased. First time there in many years. Excellent food, great service, beautiful setting. Nice wine list. Not cheap, but a good value. We were in a small room with ~4 tables, so it was not noisy (which is important to me!)

We had a delightful dinner at Glen Rock Mill Inn last night, and not our first. It was a rainy night, fairly quiet, but the service, ambiance, and especially the food were all outstanding. We feel so lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber close to our home, in this community where there is nothing, really, like it. Hats off to the chef!

Service was good. Wine was good, though they ran out of their featured red blend (and we were at early seating). The rigatoni was disappointing, was supposed to have chilean sea bass and I saw 2 small chunks that was it. Desert was good.

This is a delightful place for experiencing the heritage of the area, the old rail line, and lovely fall leaves. The food is delicious and the presentation remarkable.
We needed to change the time of our reservation and it was facilitated with a smile and kind word by the front desk. Our server was attentive, pleasant and professional. We will be back!!!!
