Stopped for a visit one evening and ordered a large pizza. After 1 slice I started to eat the second when I chewed on a rather large piece of plastic. I pointed it out to the very young waitress who said she was sorry. I believe it must have come from the top of a zip closer on a bag.Seemed... More

I often go here after golf league, they have a big screen TV for watching the games in the bar and usually have drink specials, 2 for 1, or half price taps, or something like that. They also have both bone in and boneless wings on Tuesdays, very big, cheap, and tasty with several types of flavors and sauce. The... More

Everything on the menu is "stacked" and added to….burgers are tall with many extras, sandwiches are big. The chicken alfredo pizza was quite good. The short ribs (stacked) got a good review from my friend. The service turned slow right after we placed our order- 2 servers for about 16 tables (only 5 tables were occupied when we arrived on...

We went to try their fish fry. The place is very nice and the waitress was attentive. We tried the macaroni and cheese appetizer first, which was surprisingly good. I had the pan-fried perch, which were nice sized and good. I was disappointed with the potato pancakes. They were not seasoned to my liking at all. The cole slaw on... More

We have visited the Grist Mill in the past and we're pleased with the service and food. This time the food was good but service slow. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and there were a handful of customers at 5:30. The waitress was nice but the service was slow and even slower for two sandwiches, meat loaf and grilled cheese....

We've visited this restaurant a few times in the last several months... sometimes it is really good, sometimes not so much. Sometimes service is great, other times hit or miss. There are not too many good places to eat right in this vicinity, so for a reasonably priced decent meal, this is the place to go. Allow a little extra... More

We were very impressed with not only the food, but the service we received. The staff really made us feel welcome. Definitely the best fish fry we have had in the area. The after-dinner Grasshoppers are a delight!
