We went with 1 other couple and we were seated promptly. Our server was quick and pleasant
and had our drink orders at our table in a few minutes. When the dinners arrived they were hot and ready to eat , but not all that great. Just standard. We left a good tip because our server was being loudly criticized for the food by a very rude lady at a nearby table. The food isn't the servers
fault and we thought our server did an excellent job under the circumstances.

Over the years, our family has had some good meals here. But we had an experience on a Saturday afternoon that I'd encourage people to consider.

We arrived with a young person under 5 about 4:50 P.M. We waited almost 15 minutes before we were able to get a wait person's attention. That was ONLY after I stopped one of many who had walked by, ignoring us, and asked if there was a person who was assigned to our table. He said that he would take our order.

We asked what would be quick (hoping for flat pizza but figuring that might take a while). We ordered a cheese-burger, a salad and Chicken Parmiagiana. I pointed to the Chicken Parm on the menu and said "that one."

The food took about 20 minutes to arrive. The cheeseburger and salad were ok. The Chicken Parm was unlike anything I have ever experienced, and I like Chicken Parm. It was not the typical chicken breast with cheese and tomato sauce. It was a very spicy, dish with chicken and some sort of pasta. I had only a few bites.

The wait person did become more attention with the orange juice and diet coke, stopping by to refill.

We saw other people come in with young children after we arrived. They had to wait up 10-12 minutes before a wait person stopped at their table.

The wait staff seemed very disorganized. A number came in at 5 PM, and there were two large groups of customers. But the service was bad.

We stopped at the part of Green Mill that is on Grand Av (that serves pizza by the slice) and told them about our experience. They said it sounded like the entree I was given was not chicken parm.

I would not return with a young person. There are many better options for service - and the food ranged from ok to bad.

Takes about 20 minutes from the time you order, but it is worth the wait. But you can always have a brew and a little conversation while waiting. The menu has many other dishes on it and the many I've tried were always good, but the pizza is the best.

Ordered take out hamburger and asian slaw. The burger would have been fine but it was oversalted to the extreme. Since it already had bacon and cheese topping additional salt was not needed.

Worst food ever! Walleye sandwich was way too garlicky and tough. Service was lacking and prices very high. This is cafeteria food at best. Go elsewhere.
