“Wonderful October Wedding”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

While searching for a wedding venue in the fall of 2012 (Right after Hurricane Sandy) we came across recently reopened Cobbs Mill Inn. Given our desire for a beautiful and rustic setting Cobbs Mill presented a perfect fit for our October 2013 wedding.
We must say that leading up to our wedding day we had become alarmed with some of the reviews we were seeing from other diners and wedding patrons. Whatever the circumstances others had experienced we certainly have only very positive things to say about our event.
Elayne and her entire staff were extremely courteous, attentive and accommodating, hosting both our wedding ceremony (outdoors) and reception. We were blessed with a classic and cool late October/fall day...The ceremony was against the backdrop of the water while a string duet played in front of crackling fire places (both inside and out) which Elayne's staff also tended to.
The food and service were excellent and combined for a dream experience for the wedding party and our guests...
We highly recommend the Cobbs Mill Inn as your wedding venue!

“Excellent Dining Experience”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This charming, waterfall setting still has a large menu selection. The salads and pasta dishes were exceptional. Excellent service...even on a Sat night.

“What a shame”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

It really is a shame how the food and service at the Cobbs Mill Inn is disgraceful. The place looks beautiful with the waterfall in the back. It resembles a Colonial Tavern. Now let's get to the point. Food-awful, Prices-way too high, service-POOR, SLOW with clueless waiters. I ordered a steak. I am convinced that the cook left, found a cow, slaughtered it, brought it back and cooked it. It took 1 1/2 hours from the time I ordered to the time it was delivered. So what else could be the explanation for the interminable slow delivery of food? It really is a shame because I loved the Cobbs Mill Inn and all the live music.

“Wonderful Wedding location”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Great setting on the river for an outdoor wedding. Outside of the street traffic, the ambiance was wonderful. Fall wedding, late afternoon as the sun is waning was just perfect. The setting was by the river and the guests looked out over the river at the beautiful trees as they started to turn.
The reception was inside the old mill. The decor is rustic as it's an old mill. Wood everywhere, low beam ceilings. Just beautiful inside. We had plenty of room for the dining and dancing portion of the wedding. Very romantic. Perfect place. Food was pretty good also.

“It's OK”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This was our first try at the "new" Cobbs Mill Inn. The food was fine and the service was OK. It just did not feel as comfortable as it used to be. It used to be a great, comfortable New England restaurant. Now it's just another OK place when you can't think of somewhere else to go.
