Actual working mill with a few more things to see - it's a very decent roadside museum. Has a gift and a snack shop, also an area to have a picnic. Great place to meet an mingle other bikers/travelers. Definitely stop and rest if you are traveling along Blue Ridge Parkway

No trip on this portion of the Blue Ridge Pkwy would be complete without visiting Mabry's Mill. Everything about this place is gorgeous from the setting, the mill itself, the historical exhibits, etc.

Great place to visit - in spring or fall. The restaurant is awesome - good food. Be sure to check dates for when it is open. It is closed through the late fall/winter.

A stop here includes a restaurant, gift shop and a historic water wheel and mill. I have seen lots of old water wheels, but this place is so unique! You can go inside the building and see how the wheel powered not only a grist mill, but a saw mill, a jig saw, polishing wheels and grinders, and various other... More

We arrived in Mabry Mill on a beautiful Saturday in June. We quickly put in our name in for a table in the dining area and were given a pager. We were walking down to the mill not 5 minutes later when our pager went off. We immediately returned and enjoyed a lovely meal of the 2nd best Sweet Potato... More

I really love taking a walk through Mabry Mill. I was able to take some great pictures and the weather was perfect! If you are ever in the area, stop by and take a look. You will be glad you did.

Mabry's Mill is an interesting stop if you are traveling down the Blue Ridge Parkway. They have a working grain mill with historical buildings and a diner-esque restaurant that serves filling, american, style brunch/breakfast and other homestyle favorites (like open faced sandwiches, pot roast, fried fish/chicken etc.). The mill itself is surrounded by a lovely one mile walk and sometimes... More

Mabry Mill is an early 20th century mill with water wheel. Extraordinarily scenic: most photographed location on the Blue Ridge Parkway, I understand. Adjacent gift store and restaurant. Although they open early, be careful about closing: when I was there (a Tuesday in mid-June) the restaurant closed at 5:00 PM

We went to the Mabry Mill for breakfast. It was absolutely delicious. They have stone ground grits. They have pumpkin, buckwheat, oatmeal, and regular pancakes. The biscuits were large and beautiful. The setting is lovely. Steven was very attentive. The servings were large (we took the leftovers to go). I'd go back tomorrow if I didn't live 1500 miles away.
