“Want to increase your Christmas pleasure?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Then go visit the Mills. You'll be amazed and in awe of all the Christmas decorations around the Mills! Make sure you take the time and visit every part and you'll find you'll be smiling like you did as a child.

“You must go see this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

This should be a Holiday destination for everyone! On top of the cool light displays, there is a great miniature town that is just pure fun to watch as well as an antique toy store. But the neatest part of Clifton Mill is the Santa collection - it's a bit creepy sometimes, but overall it's simply awesome... plan on about an hour or so for your visit. Don't miss this place!

The Christmas lights at Clifton Mill are amazing. It is truly magical and we will make it a tradition. You can't even explain the incredible display! If you have a chance, it won't disappoint!

“Tired Property, Food So So, Nice People”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

I had such great expectations before visiting the mill as some friends had visited a few years back. Unfortunately, the property does not look like it is generating enough oney to keep the premises in good order. Sadly, everthing looked worn and tired. When I enquired if the flour used to make the GIANT pancakes was still being milled on site, the friendly waitress was honest enough to tell us that the Ohio Board of Health wanted major upgrades to the mill if they were to continue grinding flour to be sold or served in their dishes. I sincerely appreciated her honesty. We know that historical properties take a lot of $$$ in maintenance and upkeep. Adding to the disappointment was the fact that the Mill itself was not open at the end of October for a look see. Aparently, the owners were using the Mill for staging their annual Christmas light display. Best part of visitng was the friendly wait staff. Food was less than average. For a better look at a Mill from yesteryear travel to Upper Sandusky and visit the old Indian Mill there. Check before going as they do close down in the Fall.

“Enjoyed Clifton Mill”

We had lunch at the restaurant and food was good. Server was pleasant and service was fine. Took a lot of pictures and enjoyed our visit. Will go back in December to see the light display.
