“Beware of the general managers temper!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Food was great, but over charged on my credit card bill. I called the following day to report the overcharge to the general manager, after a short discussion I told him I didn't feel this was right. He than became angry, condescending and extremely rude. He stated, "sorry you are so simple minded." Unbelievable. The great thing about living in a small town, if he continues to treat others this way he won't be in business very long :( So sad because I loved the Old Mill and the LOCAL staff!

“Iffy food brought to you slow.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

The foods' chef gets distracted, at times. The waitresses take too many breaks. It could be 4.5 stars if the owner addressed the above, and put a men's restroom downstairs and lay new carpet throughout the place.

“One of a kind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I eat at this restaurant about once a week. Since it changed owners, the food has been fantastic!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the food is sometimes cold when it is delivered, and a drink menu has to be asked for. When sitting outside, don't sit at the little table in the corner on the deck, it is a windy seat. Don't sit at the table outside the restaurant kitchen, it is noisy.
The service is 100% better, the restaurant is clean, and the owners are hands on friendly people.
Eat on the deck for the view. This is a great place for friends to get together. Will def keep going back!

“Great view with Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We enjoyed a visit to Old Mill Pub for an evening meal. Taking a table on the outdoor deck overlooking the water was a calming, relaxing setting. We waited for the waitress for a bit- but once she was pointed to our table- our service was great. Steak was perfect- potatoes delicious-veggies good. Worth coming back. Good for the price.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I dined there on Sept. 1, 2013 with two other people. The artichoke appetizer was wonderful. Two of us ordered dinner salads: mine was with grilled shrimp; a friend ordered his with fried shrimp. The salads were so-so. Mine had blueberries that had clearly been in thefridge too long and were shriveled. But the shrimp was disgusting! Both salads were topped with the same cold, sliny and undercooked shrimp...neither grilled nor fried; not so much as salted.

As a perosn who both lives and works locally, I am in a position to eat there frequently, but they really have to do better than this for me to give them a second chance.
