The Mill on the River is a 200-year old Connecticut mill that has been converted into one of East's most esteemed restaurant and event venues. It is all about the historical experience and one-of-a-kind ambience and is not simply a meal - it's an overall dining enlightenment.
If you're with a group at The Mill on the River, it should be a dining prerequisite for you to order the Atlantic Ocean Rocks Tower. This Goliath appetizer comes with jumbo shrimp, clams, oysters, Maryland lump crab meat, cocktail sauce and remoulade sauce (as long as all of these items are freshly in season). Follow this with the blackened swordfish and you will experience a life-altering, culinary sensation. Sides are served à la carte so you can create your perfect meal and nothing less than perfection is served at The Mill on the River.
Very nice memory for our one year anniversary.
I am having reservations about booking on line for the Mill on the River in the future or even returning at all. My reservation for 3 people was made for 5:00. When my party and I arrived at 4:50, we were told that seating starts around 5:00 so to have a seat in the lobby. At about 5:05 a large party came in and was seated immediately. Had I not gone back up to the hostess, who knows how long we may have sat there?!
The Mill On the River is an awesome restaurant. Their food is delicous. Will definitely go back!
It was our anniversary and Catherine, our server, made our evening feel very special.
The meals were excellently prepared and we were treated to complimentary champaign and dessert. A class act that was appreciated.
Thanks to the hostesses and Emily our server, we had an amazing experience. We will be back!
Brought 2 girlfriends, one hadn't been there in years the other her first time there. Enjoyed having lunch outside. Our waiter was very good and very attentive. I had the chicken snitzle for the first time was very dry and very little flavor would never order it again. One friend had the fish special which was good and my other friend had the reuben which she enjoyed. Two of us had dessert was not good crust was undercooked and tough I have never liked the desserts there. We will go again but noticed prices have really gone up especially for dinners.
I ordered prime rib (medium rare) and it came out cold. Sent it back and came out cold again. Sent it back and was OK but now it was not medium rare anymore. It is quite obvious that they cooked and sliced this roast many hours before and upon ordering, it was then impossible to get it back to proper serving temperature without overcooking it.
My wife and I had another great meal. We have been going to this retaurant for 41 years since we started dating (previously Podunk Mill). We have never been disappointed.
The food was very good. The atmosphere is beautiful, upscale rustic. The resteraunt is an old mill on the Podunk River. My fiancé and I are kinda foodies so we a little more picky than average. Our meals; Medalian Trio (beef, pork, veal) VERY tender, asked for medium but got medium well, nicely seasoned. Creamy polenta was excellent, with broccoli rabbe. Blackened Redfish; 30 seconds more cook time it would have been perfect. Jalapeño slaw was good, rice pilaf was a little bland. We had 2 Grey Goose straight up Martinis that could have been colder and had an odd sweetness to them, maybe a different brand of Vermouth than we use. Cappuccinos after dinner were perfectly made! Solid 4 stars, 4 1/2 with a little more attention to detail.
The food is always excellent and service beyond great. Atmosphere is the best
