Barely in the door, an employee recommended a couple of specials. Sizing me up, told me to order the ribs. Opinionated people in restaurants are welcomed by me. Had the ribs, Fried green tomatoes.......couldn't finish. Local Virginia beers on tap and good food make this a 'go to' place . I shall return !!!

The pictures on the internet did it justice, for this old flour mill has atmosphere plus! A first visit, but definitely not our last! Our server was Lydia, a young woman with loads of personality who obviously enjoyed her job. She gave us plenty of time to peruse the menu while enjoying choices of wine and cocktails. Lydia, as well... More

To note that a restaurant is crowded on a Monday night might be a positive review in and of itself. Even so, my friends and I were able to walk in and be seated at the height of dinnertime. The server was engaging and incredibly knowledgeable about the dishes, the specials nearly caused us to drool on the menu, the... More

Gotta get here early since it's popular and not very large. We love the beef ribs and the baby back ribs.

We love the ribs at Mill Street, but I suggest you go early for dinner because it gets really busy. Wait staff was doing their best but they were packed!

If you like beef ribs this is the place to go.Got in quick even though they wouldn't accept Open Table reservations.More restaurants are trying to beat the fee by not honoring when they are busy.They should either get on the program or off. Service was great and good atmosphere I

The first night we tried to get into the restaurant we were told it was at least a 70-75 min wait. The place was very crowded. We decided to come back the following night (which was last night); we arrived just before 5:00 pm. We were immediately seated by a gracious and professional host. Our meal was delicious! I had...

We always visit this place when in town. Very charming love the environment. The food is delicious and the selection is unique. Very little parking, seating seemed to be limited too. Make sure to reserve your spot! Will continue to be one of my fav spots

The Mill Street Grill is the reason we always stay in Staunton on our way annual journey south and return home. Anything we've had there is always flavorful and fresh, but love their BBQ options. The bar has an excellent variety of draft & craft offerings as well as bottled beers. The tin of warm 4-flavor bread that is served... More

First Timers: On arrival it became quickly apparent that PARKING is limited. The waiting staff are exceptional; timely; professional; personable; knowledgeable regarding their menu and other tips for their eating establishment (gluten free menu and other recommendations to accommodate our requests). The owner introduced himself while serving water to the table and began to offer a bit of history regarding... More
