I was disappointed with the amount of food you received for the price.

“picking the right place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2009

We had dinner here yesterday as we were testing restaurants for our wedding day dinner celebration this coming December. Upon arrival Ruth greeted us and showed us to our table. Upon explaining the dinner reservation and nature of our visit Ruth explained how they could/would handle our wedding party dinner. The dinner was very good, the wines (both house and name brand) were upscale and the dessert was fresh and house made. The wait staff was a team effort and availabe almost like they were reading our minds. Our main staffer was Madison, a young and knowledgeable lady that patiently explained the menu items to help us make our decisions. The people, food and experience was enough to choice this restaurant for our wedding party dinner

“Great Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2009

We dined there this past weekend, graduation weekend. We had a wonderful dinner, the atmosphere is very nice. Our waitress was terrific. She was a local from Bellefonte. I wished I remembered her name, she was that good. It was by far the best meal I've had all four years at State College.

The only negative was we were seated at the table right by the kitchen and the bar. We dined early and there were alot of open tables nearby that were available. The hostess said they were all reserved for other guests. We had reservations also. We didn't reserve the table next to the kitchen. I felt her attitude was not accommodating, as she was arguing with me because she didn't want to move us. It almost ruined my dinner, but we had such a wonderful waitress that she turned the whole experience around.

“A "veggie's" choice...from a carnavore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2009

First off, I'm NOT a vegetarian. But The Mill has two choices on their "Tavern Menu" that are fabulous...more so, if you're of the non-meat inclination.
These choices would be the veggie lasagna and veggie sandwich. The lasagna is tasty and most filling...don't miss a couple slices of Nicole's bread with this. Don't worry about carbs...just enjoy!
The veggie sandwich has asparagus, mushrooms and tomatoes within and is most
messy.....but fabulously messy. Again, the bread is great, if a bit crunchy. The crunchiness goes away towards the end of the experience as you soak up the tasty sauce.
From a life-long meat eater, I highly recommend both veggie offerings. Cheese is
incorporated so for those who don't indulge in ANY animal products, the lasagna is "out".

“Fine Dining near Penn State but away from the Crowds.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2008

This really is one of the best places in Central Pennsylvania. The building is beautiful just like the town of Bellefonte. It is well decorated, especially at Christmas. The staff is above average and the meals are superb. If you are pizza and beer type eater this is not for you. If you like a fine dining experience then you will not be disappointed. For the average Bellefonte person it could be a little expensive but for those celebrating a big event such as Penn State graduation, an anniversary or Valentine's Day don't let the price scare you. It is more of a couple's place or for those with adult children. There is plenty of free parking and it is easy to find.
