“The Mill Tales Inn Restaurant ---- Excellent recommendation to anyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Mill Tales Inn Restaurant, 20 John Pound Rd, Tillsonburg, Ontario is just a great place to bring your family and friends. It offers great service with quality food and reasonable prices. This business is one of many that gives the Town a sense of pride and honor, supported by several positive comments from visitors from all over. It sure was a plus when this building was restored and made into a restaurant. There is so much history into this restoration which brings out what Tillsonburg is really all about. If you have not been there, we all recommend a trip to the Mill Tales and meet the owner, Gord, such a fine fellow with a friendly smile and a good sense of humor. My wife & I and family always enjoy the atmosphere while dining out here ! See you all at The Mill.

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU !
Soo nice to hear how great your experience was at our Mill... makes ALL the hard work , and labour of love in the building, planning and preparation we took in purchasing the old Mill in 2000.....
When we see and hear a happy customer as yourself we are assured it was ALL a great idea for the community as well as ourselves and our staff in meeting so many great customers!!
We look forward to serving you and your friends again :)

“Beautiful relaxing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have heard various reviews of this restaurant and finally tried for a friends birthday. What a view to sit in the back sun room area !!! It was a beautiful snowy day, with plenty of ducks and geese to watch in the water.
The service is a little slow, but if you have time to relax and enjoy the view with good friends, all is well. Still have not tried the fish, but all of our meals were good.

So happy you had a chance to see the ducks ,they have sort of adopted our place ,so we now make sure they all get fed twice a day! Has become quite an added attraction for the Mill!
Yes it seems every season here is a sight of beauty,with the water and nature.. Although our fish is our specialty ,we have many other tasty meals too, like our Prime Rib, Ribs,Seafoods, etc.
We have worked much harder on our service and continue to hire and train qualified staff.
We hope you come and see us again in the Spring and Summer!
Please let us know how your experience is ......

After a period of time with just fair service, management responded with a staff of good qualified waitresses. Food has always been very good. Atmosphere overlooking Otter Creek is unique and very nice.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We've been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. They are best known for their fish and chips. Third week of every month this goes on for half price and people come from all over. The dining room over looking Big Otter Creek is charming. We were even given a tour of the rooms upstairs. Prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly.

“Horrible service, poor food. They can't handle groups.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Went here for grandmother's birthday with large group.
Horrible service. From the time we arrived untill we were served our food was 2 hours. No joke, really 2 hours... I still can't believe it. The food was poor quality and cold. We should have walked out but we were there with a large group and our elderly grandmother would have been upset. Do not go to this restaurant. Nicest looking facility with the absolute worst service.
