The Spring Mill Café has been serving French country fare since 1978. We're a BYO that serves lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The historic property features the original Spring Mill general store, and the picturesque converted farmhouse. When the weather is nice, guests are invited to dine outdoors adjacent the gardens, either on the patio or on one of the porches.

The restaurant used to be a general store and has many of the original features. The farm to table food was excellent! The service was terrific! We were able to sit outside in February, what a nice surprise. I took my mother for lunch for her birthday. I will definitely be back!

My husband and I couldn’t get out on Valentine’s Day, so we decided to go the following day. I read the reviews about Spring Mill and decided this would be the perfect spot for a Valentine’s Day dinner. The restaurant is quaint, cute and I love the rustic feel. The food was good, but what outshined the food was the service. Our server was FANTASTIC! He was attentive, knowledgeable and just a nice guy. He encouraged my husband and I to try escargot, which I can definitely say I would never order for myself, but they were quite tasty, so glad he did that. Sadly, I forgot his name, but everyone at the restaurant was great.

P.S. The complimentary glass of wine was nice.

Went for Valentine's day. They were very friendly and the food was very fancy. We did ask for special requests as my wife is pregnant and they catered very well by cooking various meats fully through. Would go again.

My wife and I lunched here for Valentine's Day and hadn't been here for over 20 years but had good memories of it which this experience did nothing to alter. Ambiance is rustic, subdued, quiet; food , delicious/rich; service, attentive but not intrusive.

While Spring Mill Cafe was good, it wasn't outstanding. We had the Octopus appetizer which wasn't great. My Scallops special was somewhat bland, as was my wife's Striped Bass. We're big fans of French Country food, but didn't really find it here at Spring Mill.

Service and ambience were excellent. We liked the cozy feel, the decorations, and the overall ambience.

overall review: good, not great.

Spring Mill Cafe is legitimately our favorite restaurant. All of the waiters that we've met are so kind and knowledgeable about gluten-free options. My wife has coeliac and we always feel comfortable and understood.
