We accept reservations on a limited basis via OpenTable, but hold the majority of the restaurant for walk-in parties. Because we hold tables for walk-ins, we recommend coming in and if there is a wait, we will seat you as quickly as possible. Generally speaking, everything moves pretty quickly in here and of course the bar areas are first come, first serve.
We do not reserve outdoor tables because we can never be sure of the weather. If you make a reservation, you can request to be seated outside on the patio when a table becomes available.

Food was excellent- service was prompt & courteous!! Ambience pleasant but a little bit on the noisy side.
Millie's is as close to heaven on earth as it can get. Always delicious!
Thank you kindly for such lovely birthday lunch!
Food was terrific. We shared a chowder, a salad (a surprisingly good salad dressing with mint,) and a delicious chicken sandwich. Our server was terrific.
I really like Millie's However, they DO NOT really have too much for anyone who is Gluten Free. I have celiac disease and can find options most everywhere these days. I am surprised they do not have options. I had a salad. Not even sure if the dressing was gluten free, so I didn't have dressing. I was disappointed but my husband liked his food.
The chowder is wonderful and dependable. There was considerable background noise because of a party at the bar.
Left hungry. Too expensive. Good vibe.
It ok, the location is great and the outdoor space is nice,. This is one of the rare acceptable options in the neighbourhood, otherwise I would not bother coming
This is my third visit & I find this place inconsistent at best, I saw a waiter pick up my companion’s beer & put it back down on the service bar. Took 9 minutes for it to be delivered by that time our lunch was over. The food I ordered blacked fish taco’s, arrived cold & not blackened, dry & tasteless. My companion had the tuna tacos & raved how delicious they were. It just depends but I’m reluctant to try again. Black salt is much more reliable.
Three of us enjoyed the lunchtime special--soup or salad and a taco. The health menu options are a plus!
Delicious food, take reservations, quite noisy especially at dinner
Heavy handed on the sauces for the entrees and dressings for the salads -- need servers to ask if patrons want those on the side or tell the kitchen to layoff the volume
Error in the dessert -- ordered coffee ice cream for my child and chocolate was delivered instead (shouldn't be that difficult for kitchen to know the difference between the ice creams)
Food has become very expensive here -- will not frequent as often due to that
Service was pleasant and attentive
Love crab Benedict
Love Millie’s. It’s a bit noisy.
Overall a very nice experience although the restaurant is really loud. Tacos were delicious and service good.
Too loud. Hard to have a conversation across a small table.
Great place to meet friends for lunch! Had an a roomy booth and took advantage of the lunch special. We all loved our selections! Then, sat and talked with friends for a couple hours, never feeling pushed out the door. In fact, a woman came over and said how glad she was to have us linger and offered us coffee. Just felt easy-going and fresh, yet lively, which is a joy around the DC-Metro area where everything always seems fast and rushed.
The hostess was very accommodating. Service was very good. A little too noisy. Acoustics not the best. Food very tasty.
We arrived early and had a drink at the bat. A table at the bar became available and we decided to I order dinner at the bar rather than at a table. The food was delicious and the service was good.
Loud yuppie parents and terrible acoustics. I love the brunch. Excellent huevos rancheros and crab hollandaise. And I loved my Paloma. This place is fun. And sit on a side near the windows or outside if you wNt to hear your guest say anything.
We love going to Millie's for a fun weekend brunch as a family. It is perfect with small children because the service is quick and the food is excellent!
Server was great. Very noisy and hard to talk. Food very good
I love this restaurant. BUT, the noise level borders on the horrific. My husband and I finally gave up and just smiled at each other. Mind you, I have no problem with the families and kiddies, I just believe the owners should invest in some soundproofing baffles. It’s all hard surfaces and the ceiling is open so the sound is amplified. Staff and food are terrific
Very good food, good staff. This is a good place to visit. Be aware there are a lot of hard surfaces, so the space can get quite loud (less of a problem in warmer months when you can sit outside...).
The lobster roll is Sooooo 🤤-ing amazing. So much lobster meat. Perfectly buttered bead. Mm mm mm! 💯
My salmon was delicious. Perfectly made. Cocktail was spot on and service good.
Loud for a Sunday brunch. Food was tasty and came out quickly.
Millies is a true neighborhood gem. Food and service were excellent
Excellent experience as always!
Loved our server, she was great, personality and patient with us.
A wide variety of casual yet upscale food. Love the Nantucket vibe with yummy lobster and cod and Cisco brewery specialties. It was quite noisy but when warm weather comes and everyone moves to the patio, it should be a more charming atmosphere. Prices are competetive.
The food is awesome, it’s very kid friendly and they have a great drink list!! What could be better?
I go to Millie’s regularly for happy hour but this was the first time for brunch. Great food in nice, warm environment. A little pricey but fun!
Brunch date with lady friend - the food was great as usual; the service prompt. A local gem.
Tasteless salad with a crab cake thrown on the side . Not appealing in looks or taste
Great food. A bit loud.
Having been to the original Millie's on Nantucket, I was excited to try the one in Spring Valley. The ambiance was nice, open and energetic with patrons. We had a great seat against the same wall as the bar so it provided a nice overview of the restaurant. The food was good, but I think I bit overpriced for what you get. I would go back, but I will pay more attention to what I order to get a better value. $17 dollars for a salad is a bit much.
The food was delicious which is the only reason for my recommendation. The service was pretty terrible. My friends and I split a few things: clam chowder, shrimp tacos, tuna sashimi, peach bruschetta, beet salad. All beautifully plated and scrumptious. However, regarding the service... upon arriving, I was seated first and sat for a good 10 minutes before someone asked if I wanted a drink. During that time, there were about 5 servers socializing at the bar next to my table. The waiter did not check in once during our meal while all of our wine and water glasses were empty. When I sat down, I told the host that we were celebrating my friend's birthday and he gave me a blank stare. Waiter did not ask if we wanted coffee or dessert; he simply brought the check. I'll go back because of the food, but the service could use some serious work.
Friendly staff as well as manager. The quality of service and food has made us wanting to return with friends very soon.
Great ambiance and yummy food. Service is fine. When we visited the restaurant did not have any dessert except for ice cream, which was the only disappointment of our meal there.
