Very surprising! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food is unbelievable. Good music and great drinks! You have to try it if you are in the area. So worth the trip!

As always the food is amazing with the crab enchilada, and my friend's crab omelette, we were amazed the wait was not too long made a little easier with strawberry gin lemonades! I always love this place and somehow the hustle and bustle is rather exciting.

Recently we showed up for Sunday brunch for the first time in a couple years, and were delighted to find that it is still the same small, bustling, somewhat quirky/salty place with absolutely delicious food and imaginative menus. I had the salmon... More

A best description might be a small, old roadside restaurant serving great food from an interesting menu in a busy and friendly, divey atmosphere. Place it on your list.

Millie's is a small cafe with tattooed smiling servers and food that is da bomb. I ordered the Castro Mess which is a local favorite - frittata pork combination with cheddar on top. Yum! Plan ahead. Line out the door.

You hear and read that Millie's is the best brunch in RVA...... and IT IS! A few of went for brunch one Sunday, and didn't wait very long which I hear is rare. This place is definitely a hot spot, and so worth the wait if needed. I had the crab enchiladas and by far the best dish I've had... More

Great place with excellent food and super waitress, the pork chops rock and the duck is super. The crawfish apetizer is another one to put on the list. The new york strip was cooked to perfection releasing its full flavor

The food was quite good, the ambiance is kind of dark diner. Very few tables, definitely make a reservation. Service was also good.

Wonderful dinners ... four were the same and those four were just slightly warm. The fifth was a different choice, which arrived several minutes after our four dinners and our friend said it was hot and delicious too. We advised our waitress that our meals were delightful but only slightly warm and the chef offered a complimentary dessert for the... More
