This place is highly recommended by locals so I decided to check it out again (I was here 6 years ago) and sure enough, the food is classic Americana and the ribs were fantastic. I had the beef ribs and let me tell you: the portions are HUGE but you do get quality with the quantity! Would recommend to anyone!

After a trip to Rockbridge Vineyard we stopped in Staunton for lunch. The interior could use a little work as it is a little dark and dated, however the food was great. Who would have thought that a restaurant this far away from the beach could prepare an Ahi Tuna wrap that was fantastic. With a good variety of draft... More

On our way back home from Washington DC to Atlanta, we stopped in Staunton for dinner and ate at Mill Street Grill based on Trip Advisor reviews. I could not wait to add my two cents after we ate there. This place is FANTASTIC! It is in an old mill and the decor is really cool! The menu was extensive... More

Baby backs and shrimp, good stuff! Great food and menu with very reasonable prices. Located in a former flour mill in historic Staunton Va. surrounded by really neat old buildings.

One word: ribs! Order them and you can't go wrong. They were some of the best ribs I've ever had. I liked them better than The Pit in Raleigh (who beat Bobby Flay in a bar-b-que cook-off). The Mill Street Grill knows what they are doing. They start you off with an awesome fresh hot bread trio, baked in a... More

On a recent family visit, we enjoyed the extensive menu, and everyone could find something good. The salads were fresh and good, but not especially exciting. The main dishes were generously portioned and everyone enjoyed them. I got the shrimp and chicken pasta, and it was great. My son got the steak and crab cake, and he liked them both.... More

We visited on a Monday night and were planning to order ribs or a steak. But Shrimp and Grits were one of the specials that night and our wonderful waitress convinced us to try them. They were fabulous! We love the Shrimp and Grits at the Filling Station in Winston-Salem NC. But we must say--these were the best we have... More
