Expensive - But, always a worth the price. We are very lucky to have this place in town. Well worth the trip if out of town.

Lovely relaxing atmosphere. Delicious French roast coffee. Menu somewhat limited. Extra charge if you want toast with your eggs.

My husband and I visited for our first time. The environment was welcoming and cozy, a very grown up space. The menu was creative and very well rounded. Our meals were prompt and deliciously prepared. We will absolutely be back!

We recently ate here for my wife's birthday. The food is very good and the atmosphere is unique with a gristmill setting and a waterfall. We had the Anglonotti and Dumplings as starters. Both were very good but the dumplings were off the chart. We...More

Millwright's is a high end place in Simsbury. Good and eclectic food, but pricey in the main restaurant. The tavern however has nice river views at a fraction of the cost. Great service, and attractive brick in the tavern.

We live in Simsbury and ate at Millwright several times. Each time, the food was excellent. The portions are not as huge as in other restaurants but always very tasty.
