We ate here for lunch on a weekday and the place was very busy. We were immediately greeted by a gentlemen that seemed to be running the place, and he made our brief wait for a table enjoyable. Upon sitting at our table, he brought us a few samples of their soups and they were all quite good. We all... More

You have to walk through the kitchen to get to the restroom at the Old Mill. I saw a few serious health code violations that should have been enough to get the place closed down. There were dirty dishes piled up next to an area where food was being prepared. Secondly the dishes were on a table with dry goods... More

Delicious meals made from scratch. You cannot order just an adequate meal. And the soda bar with a real brass rail. The servers are very friendly. This is the one spot that you need on your "ca't miss it list." Just one block North of the Intrust arena. Definitely put it on your BID list.

The Old Mill Tasty Shop is a Wichita institution in downtown. The original working soda fountain, booths and tin ceiling add to the ambience. The owner is always cooking in the kitchen and makes great muffins and fabulous chicken salad served on croissant. Lunch specials change daily and with the season.The place is always crowded so it's customary to have... More

I've been here several times, but have always had the New York Chicken Salad Sandwich. It's one you won't forget. You'll definitely go back as often as possible.

Saw the great reviews so I figured I'd give this place a try. Hmmm...was not impressed. The atmosphere was alright if you like that sort of thing, but I was expecting something more. The food was horrible. I had the special that day which was chicken and dumplings, highly recommended by my waitress. That gal has bad taste. The chicken... More

Delish food for a very realistic rice - very much appreciated as a traveler! Very home-cooking feel and the hand made sodas are incredible! Def recommend.

Not know the specialties I asked my waitress for here recommendation, she quickly responded with the "Chicken Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, and home cooked Green Beans" which was the day’s Blue Plate Special....

I took my daughter here for lunch. Our food was good, service was good, & prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was nostalgic, & they have a wide variety of food options.

Our family decided to stop here based on reviews for a late lunch. The chicken salad was great, as well the tomato bisque and green chili. The best though was the apple bread pudding with homemade caramel sauce. Other members of the party really like the baked beans. We were able to park within a block away, and really enjoyed... More
