I was very impressed with Silk Mill. My late uncle had his office there and was the plant manager of the mill. It was nice to dine in the midst of a rich industrial history. The decor is very well thought out. The manager was very charming and the staff very friendly and professional...and the food.....Excellent. I dont think you... More

We visited The Silk Mill Grille because of a referral from people staying at the same hotel as us. As we walked in, one could feel the history from the old floors to the decor. As we sat at the table of our choosing we were greated graciously by our server. She gave us the specials and her personal picks... More

We arrived around 9 and all good restos were closed. I am so glad that we ended here. Great service. Good food. Patience. A jewel in Orange.

Just gave this place another chance, and while the food was okay, the service was almost nonexistent. I again had to ask for rolls, & we got exactly 3--one for each of us. Not again!

We had a perfect dining experience here. Very friendly, very efficient staff. Truly excellent food. I had a perfectly-cooked steak. My parents both had fish and reported that their dishes were delicious and well seasoned. The thing that propels this restaurant into the upper stratosphere for me is that we were constantly barraged by questions as to whether we were... More

Staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express we stumbled upon this place. Fantastic. A great bit of history clearly explained on the menu. Our hostess (sorry I should remember your name!) was a great help answering all my many questions relating to the area. Food was great. I had been waiting to have a steak since arriving in Viginia twelve... More
