I researched to find a new to us unique location that would be fun to eat at and the Mill was it! The location was so cool and the unique food was delicious!

I love The Mill and the food is phenomenal but they have the most uncomfortable chairs I’ve ever sat in. They look like repainted, antique chairs with jeans used as upholstery which make them more uncomfortable. I would eat there more often if it weren’t for the fact that I need to visit the chiropractor every time I sit in the chairs for more than an hour. I even witnessed one of the chairs snapping a leg under a normal sized man. They comped the meal which was nice and very professional but most antique chairs need support added to avoid that type of situation. Regardless it would go far if the chairs were upgraded to something more comfortable.

First visit to the Mill, but will definitely be back. So much to love about this place. The food is fantastic, with a good breadth of choices. The service is top-notch. We also enjoyed the cocktails. They could use a bigger choice of wines, but overall it was an evening well-spent.

We showed up for our 1:15 reservation at 1:15 for brunch and were told by the host (after he disappeared for at least 5 minutes) that it would be at least 30-40 minutes before we’d be seated. We left. What is the point of a reservation if it doesn’t hold you a table? It’s no better than call ahead. Very disappointed and don’t see us trying again.

I would like to see more low calorie and vegetarian options.
The biscuits are scrumptious. Our server was very nice.

Food delicious and fresh. Service terrible. Everything took forever, other than take our order and bring the check our waiter was not very attentive or efficient even on those two tasks. After we finished, we waited about 45 mins to get check, boxes etc. Our waiter definitely forgot about us multiple times and it wasn’t even that busy. Perhaps it was just that one time experience, I’m willing to try again because of how good the food was but if I were to get the same service I would definitely not be back. No food is worth that

The service was extremely slow and we had no server come to our table for over 30 minutes when we arrived. After flagging down a server we received adequate service but the overall management seemed disorganized and very short staffed. The dishes we tried seemed to be trying to hard to combine ingredients in a novel way but it didn’t quite work, like scallops with curried cauliflower purée and sun dried tomatoes. Ingredients listed on the menu were also missing in dishes (candied walnuts in salad). Overall somewhat disappointing but has potential with better management/staff.

Although the chef was trying to be innovative, it was overkill. If someone who was a novice to such cuisine, they would be totally overwhelmed. Sometimes less is more. The restaurant didn’t offer any beer on tap, and the wine list was subpar. When our food arrived, mine was barely warm. However, my husband’s was extremely hot which led me to believe mine had been sitting on the counter while his was prepared. The chairs were very uncomfortable to sit in after about 5 minutes. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant. There are too many other restaurants with great food and better value.

The food was excellent! We tried the mussels after our waiter suggested it and were we HAPPY! Also had the southern belle salad and the tuna.... we were 3 for 3! Cool decor... very inventive chef... not your everyday choices. Will definitely go back and try some of the other dishes. You will not be disappointed!!

The service is just very bad. I had our guy serving us water decide he was the main server after he admitted he wasn't familiar with the menu. He had no idea what he was doing. This is the second time and it's unfortunate because the St. Pete location is so much better. I wouldn't recommend anyone spends this much money for a poor experience.

Thanks for a great meal, friendly conversation, and wonderful service. The tuna was seared to perfection. Jenna, Edwin, Jamal, (and I'm sorry, I can't remember the new guy's name) were all true professionals who take their job seriously. Truly a neighborhood gem with a welcoming atmosphere. They always treat military right, and for that, I thank you.

Guessing they won’t be around long - 7:30 on a Saturday night and it was dead. We counted 25 covers and one was a party of 12. Servers were lovely. Starters were great. Mains disappointing and they were out of their signature dessert. What?! The desserts we did order had fridge burn. More expensive than Edison for so much less. It’s a “no” from me.

Great food and great service. The manager remembered me from the other night I was there for Burger Week. The spare ribs literally fell off the bone. The tenderloin was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. Great neighborhood spot. Not crowded. And they do appreciate the military. Thanks again for recognizing that.

Sunday brunch. Sat outside w our dog. Really nice covered deck. Music was 70’s hard rock, really loud for a morning service. They did turn down upon request. Excellent waitress! Food was just not very good. Very heavy and too many odd twists. Hash browns were not in fact hash browns: chunks of potatoes drenched in pimento cheese. Not noted on the menu. They were inedible. Our nice waitress did bring us new sides, which were fine. Otherwise, the food was hot and eggs cooked well, but just too much going on in each dish to have any one of us wanting to return.

Met a friend for a few drinks at the bar to watch the game, we decided to stay for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the drinks were made perfectly and the food was delicious, the Head chef came out to chat a bit which is always nice to know the Chef cares if you are enjoying the food.

We will be back!
