“Order something fried...”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This a bar that serves food. Order the type of food, that a bar does well. We ordered 2 dinners, Pot Roast and Cajun Salmon. Both tasted burnt. The Salmon was barely edible, cooked to a crisp all the way around. Nearly the same with the Pot Roast. The prices were cheap, but you get what you pay for. The peas were a strange mix of frozen and canned. The fresh cut fries were good. So order those. The sandwiches and fried foods around us all looked great. But dinners left MUCH to be desired. Wait staff was friendly. We visited on a Monday night and it was busy and noisy. If that is what you are looking for... a great place. We were disappointed. If you offer dinners, you should be able to cook them.

“Waitress not very friendly”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

She was unwilling to split the bill for 3 couples. Even when we asked to split the bill before we ordered the food. Ordered the Philly cheese steak and upgraded from potato chips to fries for 1.99 extra. When an order of fries is 1.99 it did not make sense. Gave us cold buns for the sandwichs and cold gravy. Not a nice experience, but food was ok.

“fun!!!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had our "after party" following our wedding at the Gin Mill. The live music was great! They had our favorite local brews, and they put up with our rowdy crowd! Great place for a fun night!

“Great food great price”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I live local to Evil and frequent a lot of the restaurants. The Gin Mill is one of the best for your money you all always get a great meal at a good price . Service is good and the beer is cold...What else matters?

“Fun bar”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We've been stopping at the Gin Mill for years because it is a fun bar. I definitely would not plan a nice meal. Last time I was there to meet a ski friend, I ordered wings, extra crispy. Couldn't eat them because the skin was still rubbery. But the music is great and there is always a fun crowd.
