Good food in a great location

We had the Silk Mill burger and it was MMMMMMMM! Awesome! One word describes service, food and atmosphere all in one. We definitely will eat there again when visiting Orange, Va again.

We were on our way through Orange to Baltimore. Recommendations for this restaurant were given to us by the concierge upon check-in and again by two visiting fire fighters (no, the hotel wasn't on fire :) on our elevator ride up to our room. We were not disappointed. The selection of food was good and our waitress was so sweet... More

We were staying in the area, and it was my wife's birthday. There were limited choices outside of Charlottesville. However, our resort directed us to Silk Mill Grille, and we were pleasantly surprised. We both had the sirloin steak, and it was one of best we have had - better than most expensive steakhouses in the big city. The atmosphere,... More

I like places that have their own special ambiance and this place had that "different" feel to it. I didn't get to read the history that was printed on the menu, but I gather it used to be a silk mill. We were seated promptly in the back room, with the bar (and a few arcade machines) and I could... More

We visited the Silk Mill Grille in Orange, Va., in April for a weekday lunch with our friend, Joe. We all enjoyed our meals as well as our tour of the spacious old, historic building. And we were surprised at the extremely reasonable prices. Joe devoured his taco salad, while my husband, Mack, and I shared a large, juicy Teriyaki... More

Good wholesome food thoughtfully prepared. Local when available. Good service! Fascinating history of the building with lots of items for its former life as a silk mill.

Food and service was great! Get the ribs. Although it's a typical menu, nothing earth shattering the food is all made in house and very good. We were pleasantly surprised!

I only had a chicken ceasar salad, which was awesome. It took a while for them to seat us and they were not busy. The interior is just so rich with visible history. It was a silk mill, and you can see the marks in the floor from the machinery, the big sliding barn doors, the whole place just feels... More
