“Good Food and great prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

This was our first trip to the island and we had already done some research here first before going. Millie's was our first stop once we arrived on the island. We had the Fried green beans for an appetizer which had a great dipping sauce on the side and the Pastie special for dinner (a pastie is like a beef pot pie wrapped in dough served with gravy on top). The pastie was so large that my husband and I split it and we were both full. The pastie was very good. The veggies that were served with the pastie were a bit strange tasting though. We thought that they had used nutmeg on them but the cook said that it was a jerk seasoning. So if you don't like jerk seasoning order the steamed veggies without it. All in all though it was a great dinner at a very reasonable price. The service was fine as well.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

We went for lunch and we were expecting better food based on the reviews on this site. Turkey, rice, and vegetable soup was lacking turkey and rice but had a lot of carrots and squash (odd). Tuna melt was disappointing, the tuna salad had a a lot of mayo and not enough tuna. It was on toasted white bread with American cheese. The sever did not ask what kind of bread and I assumed it would be on a toasted English muffin so I didn't request wheat. Server was very busy and tried but we were never given the water that we requested.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2009

My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Millie's. The whitefish with artichoke and parmesan was excellent. He enjoyed the french onion soup and pastie. We felt the value was exceptional.
Our waitress, Jewell Geyer, took great care of us. We will surely eat here again.

“Great-tasting home-style comfort food. Friendly service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

Dropped by some of the top-listed TripAdvisor restaurants on the island looking for a dinner place. Millie could be very proud of her namesake (got to visit to know who Millie really is!). Great food, reasonable (for the island) prices, and great service. There's 4 or 5 specials each night. We chose the pasta special (chicken penne) and it was great.

Waitress/cook split an entree into two plates with a smile and graciousness. Just the right amount of food for the DW and I (post-split).

Would recommend and would visit again.

BTW - great desserts. Homemade goodness.
