Too expensive to be just OK

A little too expensive to just be an ok meal. I think the two of us spent nearly $90 without any alcohol. My steak was cooked properly but it lacked flavor. Maybe we'll try again another night.

I full menu restaurant with its signature roast long island duck with their famous bing cherry glaze prepared the way you like it. And if you are a Shepherd's pie person, then you will enjoy The Old Mills way of preparing it. You have to sit in the bar or waiting room and marvel at the post beam construction along... More

My wife has wanted to eat here for a while. We were spending a few nights in Old Forge so finally had a good chance to get in early and beat the crowd. We stood in line just as the dinner hour started. The interior is rustic and nice with lots of antiques and charm. The wait staff was good... More

For what it is and what we ordered it was very expensive.Salads come with 4 or 5 different dressings even if you say you just want one kind,which I think is a waste of money for the restaurant passed on to the customer.

Used to be THE restaurant in town to eat at. Now it's hard to get in to, the food is disappointing for the money and service unfortunately just isn't as good as years past. The food suffered from a change in chefs several years ago, in our opinion and has never recovered from that. Prices are reasonable for what you... More

We were on our way home from a camping trip when we decided to stop in for dinner. The hostess told us we could order from the lighter cafe menu if we ate in the bar, or we could order from either the cafe menu or full menu in the diningroom. We chose to sit in the diningroom. The atmosphere... More

This restaurant specializes in quantity over quality food. The soup and salad comes with every meal whether you want it or not and I didn't as they didn't have a soup I liked, so you know you are really paying for things you wouldn't normally order. My duck entree while moist and very tasty was a challenge to slice. Most... More

Just went to the Old Mill Restaurant in Old Forge NY. My wife and I were celebrating out 40th wedding anniversary ! Place looks the same , the bar might be a little bigger. Got there around 5 pm on a Saturday night. There was a Firemen's convention in town, so we thought we better get there early. No problem... More

You'll see a lot of families here. Unlimited soup or salad. Entrees are acceptable, not exceptional. Very friendly staff. When I'm in Old Forge for more than 4-5 days, I'll usually stop here.
