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.

    Our server Scott was very personable and told us all about the history of the mill building and restaurant. He even brought me a spoon for my first course after I said it was so good I would lick the plate. I could not pick a favorite from my dinner because each course was so unique but beautiful and delicious in its own way. The portion sizes were perfect, where I finished everything on my plates but left satisfied.

    My fiancé and I reserved a table at Millwrights during their Valentines special. It was our first time there and enjoyed our experience. Our waiter, Ron, was fantastic! The food was great! The river and waterfall views are stunning, and the lighting was perfect. We can't wait to dine there again.

    My girlfriend and I had an amazing experience! The prix fixe menu was perfect, we both ordered different courses and shared so we could try as much food as possible. We are both chef's and were very impressed! Our server Alex was very professional and helped pair wines with each course as well. It made our birthdays both special and we will definitely be back. Thank you!

    It is a truly lovely spot. The food is creative and original. Love that the chef and pastry chef are women. Highlight was the dessert - carmelized pear pavlova with really interesting pickled bits - ginger? Will be back for the full prix fixe. Service was a tad slow given that we had a high schooler with us, but nothing that I would say was serious.

    Chefs tasting ‘a tour of our cuisine’ If you’ve never done a chefs tasting before…you don’t pick the menu it’s selected by the chef serving you what she thinks are the best choices. We are both adventurous eaters and it takes the decision making out of it and we’re exposed to things that we would never pick to eat Tonights was Extraordinary! Joe our waiter was fantastic loved sitting on the bridge and our view of the waterfall! So romantic!

    We haven’t been to every restaurant in Connecticut, but we have been to quite a few and Millwright’s may just be the best. We just went to celebrate my wife’s birthday and we all felt as if we had experienced something special. We arrived a little late due to uncommonly bad traffic and our server, Lincoln, was right next to the hostess there to greet us and make us feel welcome. The food is the star of the show here. It is obvious that the ingredients are impeccable to begin with and the kitchen staff knows exactly what to do with them. We are confident that any dish that reaches your table will be full of flavor, thought and care. Happily, the atmosphere and service stand up nicely to such excellence from the kitchen. Our head server, Lincoln, could not be more attentive without being overbearing in the slightest. His knowledge of the menu helped us a great deal when we were having a hard time choosing. To wrap this review up, we cannot recommend Millwright’s highly enough. For us this is an easy five star experience and we only wish we could give more.

    This was our first time dining at Millwright's and our overall experience was outstanding. Our entrees (Filet Mignon and Salmon) were prepared as we ordered and of high quality. The Ginger Molasses Cookie Sundae with Coffee Ice Cream was a unique and delicious dessert. The dining room has a view of Hop Brook and is comfortable and elegant but not at all stuffy. As good as the food was, the most outstanding part of our experience was the excellent service provided by our waiter Ron who was efficient, and friendly and provided us with the history of Millwrights. We look forward to returning there soon!
