Contemporary American
Taverns have had a constant important presence in American life since the late 1600's. Many of them, which were attached to inns, were opened as resting places for travelers needing a place to stop, relax and fortify themselves. Of course the local residents frequented the taverns too, purchasing drinks and meals as well as participating in lively conversations. Taverns were the focal point for neighbors to come together, exchange news, talk of politics, and share in the general feeling of conviviality. Taverns were firmly established as gathering places for the light hearted socializing, serious talk, and of course, a
hearty meal accompanied by a tasty libation or two.
In this American tradition, we at Mill’s Tavern welcome you with genuine enthusiasm. Our staff is warm, friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. So please come, relax, visit with friends and family. You will leave refreshed and nourished, body and soul.

    The restaurant is definitely over over rated based on our visit. We received very poor service from m the time we entered the business! The menu was much more limited than we expected based on their website. Not a great dining experience.

    Not what you would expect from it’s name, Mill’s Tavern. It was not a tavern type place, but more of an upscale, fine dining experience! The food was exceptional, and the waite staff was very attentive. Samatha was our waitress and she was polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. She offered suggestions and knew what she was speaking of.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Mills Tavern. We tried the scallop appetizer suggested by our waitress Lynne, and my wife and I both had the swordfish and asparagus. We have always had great experiences and the service is always terrific. Already planning a trip back

    The Lamb, Calamari and Cocktails were delicious! The vegan white bean soup, wedge salad( bland, made with romaine and a weird orange sauce drizzled across it) and the service(slow, despite not being busy) fell flat. Not bad, but not sure if I’d recommend to a friend.

    We got there at 530p on a Friday. We left around 630p and it was getting busy. The early reservation was nice and the small tables by the bar were actually very quiet and it felt small in a good way. Food was delicious and the server Samantha was great; making solid drink suggestions as well. We will definitely go back at some point.

    Outdoor seating was requested and the waiter helped us find a nice table and then it rained…and again the waiter helped relocate to a comfortable table outside. The food was fantastic and filling. As great as the steaks were, the mac and cheese side and the bread pudding were superb. Great service, food and ambiance.

    We chose Mill’s Tavern for a PC graduation late lunch/early dinner. Loved the look & feel of the restaurant, super comfortable banquette. Food was delicious, enjoyed the oysters, asparagus, tuna tartare. The pork chop , salmon & swordfish all excellent as well as the sides of Mac n cheese , Brussels sprouts, etc. It was a beautiful end to our weekend. Would definitely come back or even enjoy a lite dinner at the beautiful long bar.

    Our Mother’Day at Mills Tavern was perfect. Honestly from years of experience of being in the business there are a few days a year that Restaurants can fall short due to pure volume. This was NOT the case. We were greeted immediately at the street by 2 valet who opened all the doors for us (Complimentary)There were 4 people in our party. The valet explained the procedure clearly and did not rush. As we went in we were greeted immediately by a server saying Happy Mother’s. This bought the hostess a minute while she was sitting another guest. We were brought to a beautiful half moon booth which was perfect. Our server Lynne was to us within 2 minutes. Lynne is exceptional and a 20 year veteran of Mill’s Tavern Our drinks were on our table with 5-6 minutes. This is great considering timing on a day like Mother’s Day. Lynne went through the menu including printed specials and verbal specials. She was relaxed calm and attentive. We also had my 10 year old daughter who she took her time with. She had bread delivered immediately the table to hold my daughter over while we waited for desserts. 2 Iceberg Wedge Salads for the table were crispy and fresh We took Lynne’s word and ordered a soft shell crab special app for the table. This was a great because of the narrow season of the crab is available. These apps were all delivered within 15 minutes by the executive chef who was also calm and polite. Again great timing. For Entree We had 2 Surf N Turfs Filet and scallop Entrees which temps were perfect on the filet and scallops perfectly seared. Au Poivre Sauce was balanced and complimented the dish well. My wife ordered the Halibut Special which was great. My daughter ordered the Pappardelle which she ate all of it which is a win. Side of Asparagus and Brussels sprouts were fantastic. Lynne had brought us a glass of Chardonnay for my wife’s halibut and a Cabernet for my Filet. No dessert Lynne was perfect Chef said goodbye Valet had our car ready Perfect Mother’s Day

    Mill's TavernResponded on May 10, 2022Thank you so much for your kind words! Lynne is a great asset to us here at Mill's! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your Mother's Day with us, and look forward to serving you again soon! Kari Carreiro General Manager

    It is exceptional food and services. Before coming to Mill’s Tavaern, I have a skeptical about their limited menu. I love seafood and their menu has a limited of seafood choices, however my son, daughter and husband love lamb and beefs, so we decided to give them a chance. Little a know, the restaurant has a extra ordinary chef who accommodates any food you want it. We had a soft shell crabs for appetizer. They gave us a charcuterie board as complementary. For main dishes, I had halibut with a wood roasted asparagus side dish. My son and daughter shared a 32 ounces Wagyu Tomahawks Ribeye with mashed potato and mac and cheese as side dishes. My husband had grilled rack of Austrian lamb. Finally, we had vanilla cream brûlée and strawberry mousse for deserts. The food are so delicious and just right to our taste. The atmosphere is so cozy and intimate enough to listen to music and have a conversation at the same time. We have been so many well known restaurants in RI and MA and Mill’s Tavern has exceeded our expectations. Tony, our waiter, provided exceptional and excellent services along with executive chef Ed Bolus. After all, Mill’s Tavern’s menu has offered variety of dishes which made with love and attention to great details. We were so happy with the services and food that the restaurant has offered. We would love to come back to try other dishes on their menu. Thank you very much for your excellent services and great good tonight Tony and Ed Bolus !! ❤️

    Mill's TavernResponded on May 10, 2022Thank you for all you kind words! We try very hard to make each experience special for our guests. It's great to hear Tony and Chef Ed made your time with us memorable. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Kari Carreiro General Manager

    Fun place — very nice people both serving and being served. Like the atmosphere. Food fine but could be better—considering this restaurant is located in a city with some outstanding examples of modern cuisine there is room for improvement. Was served scallops that were a bit underdone and not hot, accompanied by spinach that was so over saturated with garlic as to be almost inedible. This is, I hope, taken as it’s meant - constructive criticism - because it’s a great restaurant in so many ways.

    The service was amateur, and the food nowhere near as good as years ago. It took half-an-hour for an order of clams, soup was watery and tasteless, and calamari, which everyone in Rhode Island should do well, was soggy. It is a beautiful space and a vital venue in Providence, but it needs real work to get the cuisine back to where it should be.
