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.

Spent the weekend in the Gordonsville area at the Blue Green Resort. Friends suggested we travel to Charlottesville for dinner but we decided to try some place closer. The Silk Mill Grille was an excellent choice in Orange Va. From the hot rolls, the Nacho's all the way through our entrees, the food was delicious. Kudos to the Chef, wait... More

A friend and I stopped in for lunch while shopping in Orange. She ordered a Santa Fe salad and I ordered a teriyaki chicken wrap with side salad. The food was awesome, the price was very reasonable but, on that particular day they were busy, busy and the service was slow. Despite the fact, we would definitely return! The atmosphere... More

The Silk Mill Grille is located near the center of Orange, Virginia and serves as a gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. I was visiting my sister recently who lives in the area and we had lunch one very hot summer afternoon at the Grille. The decor is a bit rustic, nothing fancy, but it was a welcome relief... More

We spent the night in Orange, VA (first time) and the hotel (Holiday Inn) recommended the Silk Mill Grille. The food was excellent. My husband said that was one of the best steaks he's ever had. Two or us ordered the Pasta Alfredo with Chicken and broccoli. The pasta and chicken were excellent, but the broccoli needed something. It was... More

We checked out the reviews and were satisfied enough to give it a try. Very nice visit. Old mill atmosphere and done well. We had sirloin tips that were given and OK. Two of us had the homemade meat loaf and that choice was spot on. Very good and I suspect the mixture was around a pound when baked. Great... More
