With its unique setting perched atop a waterfall in Simsbury, Connecticut, Millwright’s invites guests to dine in the 17th century mill with acclaimed, James Beard nominated Chef Tyler Anderson and his team. Featuring daily-chosen farm ingredients, the freshest and most select product, proprietary cocktails, and exciting wine menu, Millwright’s offers a new experience to the Farmington Valley farm-to-table dining scene. The culinary team understands the impact of the highest-quality fresh ingredients. Millwright’s kitchen thrives on local ingredients – grown, raised, produced, foraged and prepared – whenever possible. They also take the farm-to-table concept one step further. Millwright’s has partnered with a farm that will grow most of its organic produce. The “Inspired New England” cuisine at Millwright’s pays homage to the land, to the flavor-rich quality of local, fresh ingredients and to the time-honored cooking techniques that enhance the natural goodness of those ingredients.

We drove 75 minutes to eat here and were not let down. The food was amazing and were the COVID protocols. They were not able to accommodate some of my allergies but I made due. I gave them 4 out of 5 because of this, otherwise, it is a 5 out of 5 kind of place.

The whole experience was outstanding; the staff, the quality of the food, and the atmosphere...everything! It was the first time since the pandemic I went out to eat and I didn’t have to make allowances for mistakes being made and say it’s OK because it’s during Covid so we’ll cut them a break. It was absolute perfection! We had the seven course chef‘s tasting. My 19yo daughter described it as “Luke eating heaven!”

My husband and I went on 11.22.2020 for a dinner date. We decided to do the bridge outdoor seating. We sat right in front of the waterfall. The ambiance was great and the outdoor heaters kept us warm. The price fixe menu offered some great options. The favorite of the night was the chicken and dumplings - they were delicious!

The chef’s tasting menu did not disappoint. The flavors balanced and played off of each other beautifully, with each course being completely different in terms of flavor and textures than the one prior. The waitstaff (Ron & Bridget) were attentive to every possible need and took their time to explain each dish to us and answer our questions. The setting is always beautiful, the ambiance always romantic and the food has never disappointed us. A truly special and memorable dining experience.

We had outside reservations and were seated at 8:00, but we’re rushed along before our “allotted time of 2 hrs. We even got a “15 minute warning before you have to leave”from our waitress, almost immediately after we got our desserts. I understand new restaurant closing rules from the state, but don’t take late reservations if it means not enjoyIng the meal without being
hustled out.

Definitely an amazing experience! We drove 2 hours from NYC and tried the four course prix fixe menu. Chef Tyler's idea and creation is on another level! The dessert was also fantastic. I would say Millwright is for sure one of the best in the Tri-State area. The price was also great. For the same quality of food, it would easily be much more expensive in NYC.

Food overall was just blah, did the pre-fix and the chicken and dumplings were so dry they were not edible. The smoked steak was just not good. Salmon appetizer and the service were awesome.

Brunch setting was beautiful and service was excellent. Two of brunches were outstanding and two were disappointing. Steak and eggs were generous portions; the eggs Benedict were sad. One egg on half piece of toast and couldn't taste seafood. Poor result!

My wife and I went Saturday for her Birthday. This was the best meal that I have had ever! Although comfort food, the flavors and technique were complicated and enjoyable. Even during the virus, one of the best dining experiences in a long time. Great job to the entire Millwright team!

Millwrights knocked it out of the park, gave us a sense of normalcy in these strange times. Bridge seating was amazing, hope its there to stay! The wait staff had to hustle due to the extended layout of seating & did a fantastic job. Food was fantastic, cant wait to go again.

Quite the perfect culinary experience - ambiance in the dining room is amazing! The 7 course chef’s tasting menu and wine pairing was exquisite - all the offerings were creative, delicious, cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. The wines they selected for their glass menu are some of the best value you can find and they were wonderful with the dishes they accompanied. Also some of the best service we’ve had dining out, even for a higher end restaurant - that being said the value here is also quite extraordinary. Lots of extra little touches thrown in here and there as well - made for a special evening. Highly recommended!

Outstanding, it was my first time there and had no idea there was such a high level quality of food and service in my area. The service was exceptional, our server's name was Ron and I will be going back and asking for Ron to be our server.

Words cannot describe how much we love dining at Millwright’s. From the start, our server went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and made celebrating our anniversary that much more special. The food was exceptional, as always. Tyler’s tasting menu is a must, each dish more mouthwatering than the last. Spaced out tables, masks, gloves, and sanitation showed that they’re taking all the necessary steps to ensure guests feel comfortable and safe. We look forward to our next night out!

Once again the Millwright did not disappoint. We sat outdoors on the Bridge on a chilly November Sunday for brunch. The heaters and plexiglass on one side kept it quite comfortable. The view was great, service stellar and the food even better.

COVID dining can be tricky, but Millwrights is so overly cautious that you feel completely safe and secure dining indoors here. As always, the food and service are amazing.
