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 loved the new outdoor seating arrangement! Even though there was a rain shower in the middle of dinner, we were well protected. We hope they keep this seating available even after in-door dining is once again permitted.

This was our first time at Millwright’s for a date night and we already can’t wait to go back! The service was absolutely amazing and the food was perfect. The outdoor setup to accommodate the current state of affairs was absolutely stunning. The chef was very present and we got to see him in action. We will definitely be going back soon!

This was our first trip to a restaurant since the pandemic. We were so pleased to see all the good people at Millwrights going the extra mile as far as safety protocols are concerned. Dining on the bridge beside the waterfall was fantastic and the meal and drinks were out of this world! The staff were (as usual) attentive and kind. Can’t recommend Millwrights highly enough.

Millwright’s never disappoints! This was our first dinner out since mid-March, and we were thrilled it could be outside at Millwright’s, to celebrate a birthday. The 4-course menu was diverse enough to satisfy everyone, including one avoiding gluten and one avoiding dairy. The value was outstanding, and the service, as always, was impeccable. Millwright’s ability to adapt to current restrictions and do it with style to create an unforgettable experience is without parallel. Bravo!

the new outdoor venue was wonderful, and honestly i liked the menu they are using outside better than the one that they used inside. Service was great, the only noise was the sound of the waterfalls. We will be going back and i hope they keep this option open even after the flu thing is done. Aaron and team you did a wonderful job.

There are no words to describe the exceptional experience we had with our dining experience. We made an overnight trip just to have dinner here as it had been on our bucket list for years. From the moment we arrived until we got in the car to head back to our hotel was pure perfection. The hostess was darling and took photos for us outside (despite the frigid weather), our meal was served with a perfect amount of time in-between courses and each bite of our meal was delectable. My daughters favorite part of the meal was the mini French press they brought out with our coffee and dessert. We tried many things on the menu....The beef tartar was exceptional! We shared our entrees, the salmon and my daughter had a special. We also shared dessert...both were gluten free options which was so nice! We already have made plans to return and try the tasting menu next time! Thank you for a wonderful And memorable evening!!

My wife and I went here for the first time to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary, and we couldn't have been more well cared for. After being seated we were given a glass of champagne and an anniversary card. It was such a friendly gesture, and it really made the night more special. The servers were very attentive; we noticed every table had two servers which ensures each patron is well served and it’s easy to grab someone’s attention if needed. The night ended with a dessert from our server- which was such a nice surprise! We will definitely be coming back here in the future.

Millwrights is by far the best dining experience in the Hartford area. Millwrights does everything right, from the attentive and professional hostess and servers, to the beautiful atmosphere, lovely table settings, and excellent food, wine and cocktails. Our server, Ron, was so attentive and professional. Ron went above and beyond our expectations of excellent service. Every time I dine at Millwrights, I wonder why I ever go anywhere else. I tip my hat to Tyler Anderson and his management team for creating such a consistently exquisite experience.
