We have eaten at several restaurants in the area around Smith Mountain Lake, and we've found most of those aspiring to more than sandwiches and wings--and many of those--to be mostly disappointing. Millstone Tea Room is the proverbial diamond in the rough. Outstanding. This is the kind of restaurant I love--small, relaxed, comfortable. It is is off the beaten path... More

This is my favorite local restaurant. The food is fantastic. I have some food allergies and they really are able to help me with those in the food they prepare. The food is outstanding and always fresh. The menu changes depending on the season, so you are always getting the freshest. Great wine selection, beer on tap and a bartender... More

Bacon-wrapped dates, fried oysters with deviled-egg dressing, original cole slaw with NO mayo. The creativity and quality of the food is always worth the trip.

We sampled the bacon wrapped dates, crab dip, oysters and others for appetizers all which were so yummy. For dinner, after lots & lots of deliberation & mind changing I went with the chicken & dumplings and they... More

My wife and me stayed at the Cedar Post Inn for a vday Getaway. The owner recommended us eating dinner at Millstone which is conveniently only a couple of miles from the B&B. From the outside Millstone just looks like a old run down country restaurant but inside it is beautiful! It's quite small which we liked cuz that meant... More

Had the fresh Oysters... very good, Nice and light. Also had Dates with Bacon ... which were okay but would be better if stuffed with chevre. Also had a salad with chevre, the... More

Very surprised at the size of the restaurant, small but well decorated and comfortable. The menus offer daily unique items not found anywhere else in Bedford, Va. We ordered Frog Legs which were prepared to perfection! Duck and Chicken selections with specialty sauces were our friends favorites. The desert offerings were again tasty. I ordered the cheesecake which compared to... More

We recently ate at Millstone with friends while on a BRP/Skyline Drive trip. This place was very good and the meals were fresh and delicious! And the service was great too! My friends were exclaiming, " How did you find this place in the middle of nowhere?" Of course I used Tripadvisor to make my decision. We had a couple... More
