“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Needed a quick lunch. Didn't want to miss out on local cuisine and drove by and decided to stop in. Very clean and friendly. Nice dining area. We had a delightful lunch. Very fresh food. The soup was delicious. Prices were 'friendly'. There are so many local places to eat and we just stumbled upon this one for a quick business lunch and we weren't disappointed!

“What a surprise since the addition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had lunch there a couple months ago. This was the first time since the expansion. What a beautiful facility with food to match. The menu contains PA Dutch and "English" favorites, all good. Homemade soup was some of the best around. We stayed at the Best Western on this property some time ang and enjoyed ourselves. Unfortunately, we can no longer do so as they are not a pet friendly hotel.

“Quaint Friendly Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We stayed at the Best Western Plus - and this restaurant is part of the hotel. It is quaint, neat, and had fabulous service. We had breakfast and dinner there. We absolutely would recommend this restaurant (and hotel) and will return if when we visit Intercourse again.

Excellent quality / price ratio. Typical county restaurant. You should try the Stolzfus sausages! Quick service....they close a bit early ;)

Yes! Your are right! The Stoltzfus sausages are soooo good! Locally made, they certainly are a popular favorite with locals and visitors alike. We are glad you had an enjoyable meal with us here at the Olde Mill Restaurant. Serving delicious food, at a fair price, by a friendly staff is so important to us. We are glad we achieved that during your stay.
