Look what I found in this little town. The old mill is alive with great food at a reasonal price. There are certain things I never eat out because I make it better than any chef, but this day I took a chance on a pulled pork sandwich. So glad I did, it was excellent and the toasted bun was...

Orange is a funny town. Some cool places to eat but aren't open when you want them to be. We had been here last year and thought it was good. A great waitress, food was good, and the menu was very expansive. Certainly a good deal all around.

The place has a historical atmosphere, however, the food and service are only mediocre. It is a local place with good rolls but most of the rest of the food appears to have just been heated up from frozen.

The Silk Mill is in downtown Orange not far from the historical center of the town. The restaurant is in a building with character from a different era. Apparently the name comes from the days when silk was manufactured for parachutes during the second world war. While those days are long gone, I love that the restaurant owners have held... More

Recently visited for dinner while visiting in town. Nice,local restaurant that has lots of space and interesting history. The food is just ok, but the rolls are hot,homemade and fresh! We ordered the fresh salad which includes homemade dressing. Enjoyable. I ordered the fried shrimp, which were hot but tasted like frozen. The mash potatoes are homemade and the prices... More

It was average, the food was okay, and service was fair. The Crab Dip appetizer was good, my husband's steak was fair and I ordered the Rockfish with a sauce was a little to sweet for me. Probably wouldn't go back.

Spent Sunday night in Orange and was searching for a place this is open Sunday, and decided to give this a try. It was fantastic, from the salads and home made dressings, to the filet and fluffy baked potato, to the warm bread, it was excellent. it also seemed to be a favorite with the locals. Definitely worth a try... More

A friend and I went here on a Thursday night. I had the Southwestern soup and a salad. My friend had her usual chicken and broccoli alfredo. Again, we weren't let down. The food was outstanding and it came quickly. There was also live music playing in the bar. We frequent this restaurant often and have never been disappointed.

This restaurant was very close to the hotel. It offers local fare and is not expensive, however the food is really very good. They have a quaint interior playing up the former occupant (silk mill). They have many interesting choices including comfort food.

Excellent food and service for reasonable prices. Stopped in for Happy Hour, stayed for dinner. Return a second time during our stay in the area due to quality of food and service.
