We had a very nice dinner at the Old Mill Room last night. The vegetarian potato gratin was delicious and the trout was excellent. All our meals were excellently prepared. I would recommend eating here.

This week we had dinner at the Boar's Head Inn's Old Mill Room. It was absolutely delicious - starting with the excellent choice of Merlot chosen by our server, Nancy. Nancy was extremely helpful with deciding on our entree choices - the Old Mill salad was superb and beautifully presented - as was my Beef tenderloin . . . the... More

Its been years since our last visit to the Old Mill Room. Nice to see it hasn't changed. Food selections were excellently prepared. Service was impeccable. The ambiance is that of an upscale mountain lodge suitable for a quiet, cozy, romantic dinner. Not to be missed.

A great place to get away for an hour or so even in the middle of your workday! Because it is buffet style, there is something for everyone.

The Old Mill Room is a pleasant relaxed environment with attractive views of the Charlottesville countryside. The staff was friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired. My wife and I both ordered a BLT-not a complicated or unusual order. It was a disappointment. The lettuce was lifeless. The tomatoes were tasteless and the bacon was... More

Dining experience is outstanding. The visual appearance of our menu selections heightened the anticipation of our first bite into each one of them. We were not disappointed at all. Also the “compliments-of-the-chef tastings” of the other choices on the menu actually gave us a great idea as what to order for our second night dinner.

We returned this week as a party of 6 to the Old Mill Room for a business lunch. We wanted to impress our out-of-town business associates with a nice lunch, and the Old Mill Room never fails to excel. We enjoyed a superb choice of main courses from the buffet including Beef with Shallots and Champagne Chicken, preceded by the... More
