History and the Mississippi River combine once you arrive at the mill. Definitely one of the few well preserved buildings from the mid 1800s. BBQ and southern style cooking along with the blues and jazz bands compliment one another. Along with the art gallery and...More

If you are anywhere within 100 mile radius of this restaurant, you must stop and visit. It is an old grain mill that was built in 1849 and is now converted into a restaurant. The decor is still an 1849 mill with comfortable seating and...More
