I have not been to the Old Mill Pub since the Nickerson family owned it, and it still has the charm that it did back then. Food was great, good selection, drinks and beer excellent. We went on election night to get away from the madness and it was very busy. There was one young lady taking care of everyone... More

What a nice surprise! Great well diversed menu, there were many choices from entrees to sandwiches. Both our meals were really good. The service was great. We found it on trip advisor and thought we would try it out on our way from VT to barharbor.

"The Pub" has a lot of history behind it and we were so happy to go there. The Atlantic seafood is delicious - try the crab-stuffed haddock - YUM. The owner greeted us like we were family and the service was excellent. In addition, the atmosphere is casual and comfy. A++++++!!!!

My mother and I got put to stretch our legs along the Kennebec River and found this little restaurant without looking for it. It's tucked away by the river near the dam. The menu has a wide range of food--appetizers, salads, red meat, fish & chicken. We ordered the onion rings and the spinach artichoke dip. Yummy! My mother described... More

We went in on a Saturday night and there was a great performer with a guitar upstairs where we sat. We were with my brother in law, who apparently knew everyone in the place, and this enhanced the very friendly and homey vibe. Food was great and service was very good despite the crowd. I highly recommend.

We choose the 'Old Mill Pub' because it was on the river, we were not disappointed with the view or the food. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. Although it was chilly, we sat outside on the rear deck and had a nice view of the river. It was obvious the locals enjoy the pub, a little Irish... More

Excellent service and food, live music, relaxed atmosphere. What's not to like! It's a little tricky to find but worth the effort.

Nachos and salmon salad were excellent. Service was slow due to several large tables. Nice outside deck and live music.

Tucked behind the main drag, it is well worth the effort to seek it out. Our late arrival meal was excellent. Two different fish dishes were fresh and tasty. Waitress was especially pleasant and shared about the town. Recommend and will return when travelling through next time.

This place offers the otherwise rare experience of dining at around 8 pm as travelers often have to do. Most places in Skowhegan close for dinner by 8. People are attracted here by the view promised from the terrace and it is awesome, a word I don't use lightly. The terrace seating overlooks a magnificent drop to the Kennebec river,... More
