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 were presented with a handwritten card for our anniversary. When it began to downpour, we were offered an indoor table as a backup (our reservation was for outside). Our server shared pictures of each dessert option from her phone when we couldn’t make up our minds. And the food!! Each item we ordered was better than the next, including the espresso martini.

    My wife and I have been to Millwrights several times this time was a business dinner with two people from Asia. Both individuals were very fascinated with the main dining room and views of the falls from our seat. Food was very good, service and staff was exceptional.

    The Chef’s tasting was amazing, such an eclectic mix of flavors and foods. My only disappointment was my vegetarian entree dish that was a rice stuffed poblano pepper. It was very spicy and heavy, not at all in sync with the other food offerings that were delicate. Other than that, a wonderful meal and experience. Our servers were fantastic also!

    Food, beverages, waiter, and ambiance were wonderful as always. I wish the portions were slightly smaller for the tasting menu so I could eat more. We’ve been to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and if Michelin came to CT, Millwrights definitely deserves several stars. Thank you for another excellent experience. We will definitely be back.

    It was my husband and my first time here. We would highly recommend this restaurant. We opted for the chefs tasting menu. It was amazing. My husband had the regular menu and I have a seafood free menu. We loved everything that they served us. Our waiter Ron was fantastic! He was so attentive, helpful and explained every dish that he served us.

    This was the best dinner experience, if I could give more than 5 stars, I would. My significant other and I decided to do the Chefs tasting, the best decision we made. It was described beautifully as each dish came out, the food was incredible and it was served by an amazing server, Ron. I’m sure all the servers make for a great experience, but if you want to ensure a wonderful night, ask for Ron. I was amazed by how kind, funny and knowledgeable he was with answering all questions we had, as this was our first time eating here. Lastly, I am gluten free and they didn’t even hesitant to make every dish gluten free, and most dishes didn’t change much at all, if at all. I would come back in a heartbeat and highly recommend if you are thinking about eating here!!

    Received dirty martini which needed to be replaced by what I had ordered. Oysters were so tiny and served without horseradish or cocktail sauce, halibut was dry and definitely over cooked but the veggies and sauce were tasteful. Husband ordered scallops which were awesome….I debated on getting them and wished I had! Overall it was just an ok rushed meal. In and out felt like we didn’t really matter.

    First timer and a long haul for us almost 2 hours. I wish you were closer as we would like to try all sections of the restaurant but tough to do. I would recommend it to others to try and as it can be a nice night for just casual or special date night for dinning. Staff was spot on as the service was excellent. I wished we could have dined later as I would have liked to see things all lit up.

    I really enjoy this restaurant and visit frequently. Unfortunately the service was really concerning last night. We had a reservation at 5pm and were told we were on the clock and reminded on more than one occasion of how much time we had remaining, then ultimately asked to leave our table for a party that was waiting - only to discover that there had been no one waiting (we lingered for a while after our table had been cleared finishing our wine and using the restroom upstairs, so we saw our table being cleared and no one being seated for at least 30 minutes after we were asked to leave the table). I will return to Millwrights because the experience is almost always wonderful and the food and service are fantastic. I think this longtime server may need a reminder about...good service.

    The open-air bridge location gives you front row seats facing the falls. You can not beat the scenery & ambiance and is what makes this restaurant unique. Food, drinks, and service were average. However, our hostess and bonus server Jodi (with trainee Quinn) was incredible. We got a card for celebrating our anniversary there. The tavern menu is a nice alternative. I recommend the restaurant for its unique open-air bridge setting. Side note: I noticed a taco truck in the parking lot afterward with great views as well.

    Everything we had was amazing! Our party had the smoked salmon mousse, tapioca custard, chicken and dumplings, charred broccoli and wagyu tritip for starters. Each had its own wonderful flavor. We then had the sea bass, duck, and scallops for our entrees. Once again, all were cooked to melt in your mouth perfection! So glad we managed to save room for dessert, because that added the perfect finishing touch to the entire experience. The brownie sundae, panna cotta, red fruit crostata and blueberry corn cookie with vanilla mascarpone, grilled apricots, honey and basil were all superb and beautifully presented. Last but not least, the service was excellent. Overall, a great experience!
