“OMG, diners are not stupid”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

attended this for a retirement presentation. The meal was disgusting. The menu claimed that certain meals would be served but none were as claimed. Meals were tasteless and skimpy. Nothing near the meals presented on the menu, The presenter was totally screwed. Also, the before meal service was ot present.

“Great food & a little slice of New Engand!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Mile Away is such a great place to take out-of -towners! The big fireplace gives it such a warm & local feeling ambiance. They brilliantly offer great entrees but for just a small additional fee you can get a four course meal that includes appetizer, salad & dessert! (who REALLY doesn't want that dessert...and thier pricing strategy causes the "add-on" to make sense!)
It's conveniently located --less than a mile off the Route13 exit from 101, so don't let that Milford address scare you off!

“Classic European cuisine”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I had heard that the Mile Away restaurant, long a benchmark of fine dining in Milford New Hampshire, had changed owners, so I went with my wife and my mother to check it out. It is still great, and still serves a traditional European-inspired menu. This is not nouvel cuisine, but a fine dining experience in an old school sense. They serve a four-course Table d'hote (although I am not sure they call it that) which is a good value. The bar serves up a nice Manhattan (with bitters!) and the wait staff is the cream of the local service crop. Great to celebrate a special occasion!

“Charming, Old World decor and great European Food”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Went to the Mile Away restaurant this weekend again, and it is always a pleasure to dine there. This weekend was no exception. Blue and white china dinnerware and old fashioned puppets line the shelves, along with cuckoo clocks and pictures of far off European vistas. The atmosphere is very cozy and the wait staff is professional and efficient. The food is a cut above and very competitively priced. The 4-course meals are a bargain at around $25 each. My seafood chowder was loaded with seafood and flavor. Salads were crisp with homemade dressings. Mine was a lovely sun-dried tomato dressing. Yummy! I ordered pan seared scallops and received 6 huge scallops for a single portion! Lots of unique desserts available too. Great pic for a special occasion.

“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I had never been here and I am so glad that we did go! The food was fabulous and for just a few dollars more you can get a 4 course meal from appetizer to dessert. So of course that was a no brainer. We plan on going back for sure....you will have to read the history on this place as it is also facinating. They also have a HUGE fireplace, which they have going starting in November.
