The worst thing about this restaurant is that they aren't open more hours of the day. The food and service can't be beat, though it can get quite crowded. Never disappointed. :)

We ALWAYS have to stop at the Old Mill Tasty Shop when we visit Wichita. They have a variety of food...from salads and sandwiches to full home cooked entrees. My favorite is the tomato soup. Sit at the soda counter and watch them make the drinks and ice cream treats.

Quaint little place in downtown (?) Wichita. Arrived for lunch, had to wait for a table for approx. 10 minutes. The menu isn't huge but adequate for lunch. The chicken salad sandwich I had was very good, nice and creamy salad, good flavor, on thick-sliced white bread. Came with options for side, chips were nice kettle chips. Took some apple... More

I must say I am writing this review from a distance but because I am thinking about all of the great memories of both food and atmosphere I have of the Old Mill Tasty Shop. It is a blast from the past that has a great current positive vibe. Thank you so much for keeping this place going!

I love BLT sandwiches and order one anytime I see them on the menu. And, I honestly believe the BLT at Old Mill was second only to my grandmother's on white toasted Wonder Bread, with Miracle Whip, and a big slice of beefsteak tomato. My wife ordered the burrito special which wasn't the best burrito I've ever had, but it... More

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.
