Great Food and You Will Never Leave Hungry!!

We have passed by here many times thinking that it was a "nicer, higher priced restaurant"... but after many people told us rave reviews we had to check it out and were we ever glad we did!!! I must admit that we are now bit fans of the Old Mill and will be coming here from now on for dinners... read more

The food was good down home cooking with a good variety. I liked that it serves the salad and soup family style. I would recommend this place for a good hardy after a long day of snowmobiling.

Haven't been to the Old Mill in about 25 years. Decided to stop in for a drink and had a wonderful time. The bar area is VERY inviting, the service was wonderful and has a great view of Moose River. Looking forward to visiting again.

We had One dinner here. The service was good, the fish was cooked properly, the portions ample. A bit overpriced for standard fare, but well done.

Every year I travel with friends to Old Forge. The Old Mill is always on our list of places to eat. The food is great (love the soups) and the service is friendly in both the bar and restaurant. Not necessarily cheap, but it's to be expected in a resort town. We never leave there hungry or complaining about the... More

Beautiful day out so myself and 3 others decided to go for a drive to Old Forge! Never went to this restaurant so we decided to try it....wrong move. French onion soup was good but after that it went downhill! Had filet and was not cooked correctly and dried out instead of moist! I asked for pasta as a side... More

Atmosphere at the Old Mill is delightful. Family soup and salad with main meal was pleasing. Peppercorn salad was extra fine. Had the tortilla chip encrusted tilapia. Excellent taste with a little bit of spice. However fish was not cooked through making it tough in the center. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant. Overall enjoyable experience. Somewhat pricey.

My honey & I took a motorcycle ride to Old Forge today and decided to have lunch. I have always wanted to eat at the Old Mill, so we stopped there. We were going to eat on the deck but it was a bit chilly for me so we moved inside. I am so glad we did. The interior is... More

A very nice looking woodsie restaurant. Pleasant hostess, very nice wait staff. Food just so-so. Expensive for the quality of the food. Yes u get a kettle of soup which is just- ok. Then a salad bowl of salad with a variety of self serve salad dressings. The 4 of us were ready for prime rib- which is their feature-... More

Not much selection. Food delayed because cook forgot to turn on fryer. Chicken fingers was stringy, fries were cold. Also - not the restaurant's fault (I guess) - but a very rude and obnoxious diner at another table carried on an extended and extremely loud cell phone chat with a golfing buddy who apparently needed blow-by-blow directions to Old Forge...
