My husband and I were just driving back from visiting Monticello and a local winery when we happened upon Silk Mill. We loved everything about it. The atmosphere, the food, and the service. Too bad we live 3 hours away from this restaurant otherwise, it would be one of our favorite "go to" places!

We stayed in Orange for three nights on what we called the dead presidents tour (visiting four presidential homes), In our visit here our soup was lukewarm. The steak I had was adequately prepared but with little thought to the presentation.

Greetings, we're visiting from Richmond, Virginia, staying in the area for the weekend. We searched high and low for local eateries and restaurants but found no restaurants close to our lodging area that would appease my husband. So as we attempted to look for the last time, he glanced at our map and found a restaurant called Silk Mill Restaurant.... More

We go here often as it is one of the few choices in Orange. The food is always good. Service sometimes a little slow. On the most recent visit, my daughter had the soup and salad (ceasar salad and french onion soup). She almost always orders this and loves the soup. My wife had a salald with grilled sirloin added...

This was a very fascinating place to stop for lunch on the way to DC from North Carolina. I loved the atmosphere and the artifacts. There were wonderful pictures on the walls. It was a large remodeled mill....the service was excellent! Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best...we left without eating much.

Our early dinner was quite good, but what we liked the most was the setting/décor. Formerly a silk factory, the owner(s) retained the industrial look and added all kinds of machinery and implements. The high ceilings of the original mill enhanced the ambience. We opted to eat on the outdoor patio after spending some time indoors looking at the implements... More

My second dinner in Orange for a 3 night stay was here because they aren't open Mondays. This was an improvement over the first restaurant, but I stuck to steak and potatoes based on some of the reviews here. Started out with a Caesar salad, which was decent but they had no anchovies, so it was either out of a... More

We were looking for a restaurant that was average in price and had good atmosphere, and we were pleasantly surprised by our choice! The service was a little slow, but the industrial atmosphere was nice. It was a little difficult to hear conversation due to the room being completely open but we made due. Food was delicious! The crab dip,... More

Not much else to speak of. The fish was over-cooked. The service was slow and unprepared for "people coming in at the same time" or, as we call it, "dinner time".

I was so impressed from walking in the front door it feels very upscale. Great atmosphere. The food was amazing. We had the crab dip served in a sour dough bowl, yum. I had a salad with homemade ranch...wonderful, and Salmon with the orange glaze was cooked to perfection and served very hot. We were so delighted that we came... More
