Our group of 10 went here Saturday afternoon around 4pm and sat at two tables outside on the patio. I ordered the Caesar Salad and was told they were out of Romaine lettuce... but after some discussion with our server, they were able to substitute Iceberg which was fine. My salad was good, it came with a sliced chicken breast... More

had pork medallions served over bed of salty mashed potatoes. adequate. Had a drink in bar during happy hour and a bottle of light beer and a small cc and H2o was $9.50 I thought that was a little stiff for happy hour. I will refrain from drinking alcohol next visit

We have gone to the Grist Mill for dinner, several times for lunch and recently for breakfast. We have enjoyed everything we've ordered. Sometimes the food we ordered was creative and top-notch (like the beer infused cheese dip) while other food items were very good but not necessarily unique. Every time we've been to The Grist Mill the service has... More

I have been to the Grist Mill four times. I have not been satisfied on any of my visits. We have had poor, slow and immature staff every time we go. The last time the waitress messed up and assumed my Mom and I wanted to split a breakfast instead of giving us two of the same breakfasts. The breakfast... More

We found the staff pleasant and our server, Haley, to be very nice and helpful. We both selected the Grandma's Meatloaf and wished she'd have tried something different. Plain and simple, it was just too much and over the top. It all had a good flavor, but over the meatloaf was a marinara sauce and bacon, with a huge pile... More

Really good traditional breakfasts. The staff's service is not smooth….its obvious there is no supervision. The atmosphere is good. The portions are big. Over several visits I've had a consistency problem when ordering from deeper in the menu…its a big menu.

I recently re-tried the Grist Mill at their new location after some bad service at their old location. It is sad that a restaurant with this good of food has such poor continuing service. Every time we are visiting we are constantly interrupting the service staffs social hour and being a smaller restaurant area it is not enjoyable to listen... More

We have visited a couple of times, and have enjoyed the food. New, interesting selections, and plentiful portions. The interior is nicely done, and lots of space. Service needs improvement, as it seems we are imposing on the server's and their conversations, especially if you are not a regular. Menus are printed in far too small of print, even for... More

Ate at the Grist Mill while on a business related event. Was there once before just after they moved and the food has been good both times. The first time there the restaurant had about 25% of its tables full but long lines with about a 45 minute wait. It was explained to us that they had just moved and... More
