Excellent Ribs

Always stay in Staunton on our travels between SC and PA. We always enjoy a good meal and service at Mill Street Grill. Had the ribs for the first time and they do indeed rank up there with what you could get in Kansas City. We try to get there a little early before the crowds arrive.

EVERYTHING that we had was delicious! We sampled one of each of the soups and they couldn't have been tastier. My son's steak was cooked pefectly, the Monte Cristo was HUGE and sooooo good, and the Greek Mahi Mahi was so unique and tasty. This was our first time here, but we will be back. Also, we had excellent service!!

In the city of Stanton there is no better place to eat than the Mill Street Grill. The atmosphere is fantastic as it is located in an old historic building historic downtown Staunton. The food is the very best quality and they always serve meals with their homemade fruit butter and bread. You can't go wrong eating at Mill Street.... More

We made the mistake of not ordering ribs the first time we came here and were disappointed with our entrees. The second time we got ribs and beef and it was superb. If you're not in the mood for ribs, I would suggest one of the other fine restaurants in the area.

Asked the hotel for suggestions and instead of the usual chain restaurants we decided to try a family owned restaurant. My husband had ribs and I the crab cake dinner. The homemade freshly baked bread was three varieties in one. We had plenty for a snack later. The complimentary mint ice cream at the end of the dinner hit the... More

We had a delicious meal, cooked to perfection, served efficiently from the kitchen by Bridgette, who was delightful! The manager, as well as the owner, stopped by our table to chat. We felt like honored guests but the good news is they treat all their guests that way! We definitely want to return to Staunton and will, for sure, return... More

I researched Mill Street Grille prior to our trip to the area, so I knew it was popular. I didn't expect a 45 minute wait at 7:30, however. While the food was average to above, we were appalled that the beer bottle and glass that the waitress was holding tipped, spilling half a bottle of beer into my friend's lap.... More

We stopped in Staunton, VA on the way North overnight and was referred to this fine eating establishment. We sat at the bar and met the most friendliest local individuals who frequently visit this restaurant. The bartenders were fabulous as well. BUT, our sampling of the ribs was phenomenal. The best we ever had. Mmhh! soft and off the bone... More

We had a light dinner before the evening performance at the Blackfriars which is what brought us to this very lovely town of Staunton. Staying at the Stonewall Jackson, this restaurant was just down the street and within view from our hotel window. My husband and I arrived early so there was no wait on a Thursday night. We loved...
