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

Excellent food in small town Wisconsin. Amazing newer, bigger space for The Grist Mill. Freshly prepared food, great service and a pretty varied menu by a very creative chef. Highly recommended!

This was our first trip since they moved to the new building. We went on a Sunday after church and there was quite a crowd. We only had to wait about five minutes for a table. I had the prime rib panini and homemade chicken dumpling soup. Both were delicious and the serving size was perfect. Our waitress was informative... More
