Lunch left much this time. Food in most cases is pretty good, today it was just off. I had the northern Ruben, very little corn beef and the flavor was just not ther. It did not help that the bread was pan toasted just a bit much, which gave it a burnt taste. The fries we mostly just warm and... More

I ordered a special. It was pork. I also got slaw in place of potatoes. Neither tasted right. Later I was sick. Not sure if it was the food at the Main street Mill or not.

The salad and soups were very good. I ordered the crabcakes made with lump crab according to the menu. The crabcakes were some of the worst I have ever had. I sent them back and told the waitress that I didn't want a bill adjustment, I just wanted them to know my concerns about their menu advertisement of lump crab.... More

The food is great, this restaurant is set in an old Mill. There is an upstairs (pub atmosphere) or a downstairs (more family style restaurant). We've eaten here numerous times over the last 6 months, always satisfied.

Very casual with good food. Always have a decent meal but not fine dining. Nice neighborhood joint. The taco salad is my favorite!

Paid $55 for a cafeteria meal. Food was bland. Service was poor. Too bad as it is a nice historic building.

A friend asked to meet me at the Mill for lunch. Having lived in the area for many years, this was one restaurant I had never tried. I'm glad. Their broccoli soup was the thickness of wall paper paste and slightly below room temperature. Gelatinous. My salad consisted of Iceberg lettuce, and the "iced" tea had no ice. A faint... More

I see a few negative reviews on here, but it wan't a terrible experience when I went. I ordered a salad and it was actually really good, and I loved the dressing. The place was very down home, place. Friendly staff and interesting murals on the wall. Ate here on the way to SNP Skyline Drive.
