“Bad food, bad service”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Not too much to say about this restaurant, except another restaurant that can be so outstanding, but they can't get it together. We were there over a year ago and we also were not greeted. Stood there for several minutes, and that was the better part of the evening. The food was good; absolutely nothing special. We pass many restaurants to come here, so we wouldn't do that again. Then the waiter gives us an attitude about the side dishes - are you kidding me? We are the nicest group of people, we give nobody a hard time, we tip great, (most of the time cause we were all in the restaurant/bar business) and this guy thinks he is going to talk fast enough to confuse us? Not happening, now or ever. Anyway, I did call the owners (no reply) and I did write the owners (no reply). So, if they don't care about 6 adults spending money in their restaurant, then I guess we won't either.

“Lovely place for a birthday party”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Was invited to a good friend's birthday party and my husband and I were SOOOOO impressed with both the food, the service and the ambiance. Our hostess and host requested that only appetizers and dessert be served, thus keeping the attendees moving about and interacting with each other (many of us didn't know each other). There were constantly delicious appetizers coming out of the kitchen with wine and other non-alcoholic beverages available in lovely stemware. The ambiance was just lovely despite it being a gray and rainy day. The fire was constantly attended and provided warmth on a damp day. I just can't say enough about this experience and I'm so sorry to read that others did not have a similiar experience.
I am unable to comment on the value as the party was paid for by the host and hostess.

“Nope! Not For Dinner @ $240 For Two!”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Beautiful Stone house and grounds, but indifference to the ambiance, service and food by apparently disinterested proprietors. Scallop and quail appetizers and two salads were a really nice start, but it was downhill from there. Veal and bean soup, unfortunately, was lifeless; the filet kind of a mush. Broccoli rabe unseasoned and bland-a bit more attention should have been evident, as only three vegetables for nine entrees offered-and one potato side for all. Dessert was also lackluster-a molten lava cake not only not molten, but lacking any semblance of anything once molten, or for that matter even liquid.

What added to the festive occasion was the fireside table; unfortunately, from our 7:45 seating until our 9:30 departure, all that warmed up the occasion on the cold January night was a few faint embers fading as we ate. No matter two requests to add a log or two from the stack nearby; apparently a lost art here, as staff was uniformly baffled. Also needed was a reminder to rescue our flowers and candle from the mantel, where they were apparently inadvertently left when our table was set. Server was also uniformly baffled by the details of each entree and managed to overlook one of two simple serving requests. Other than that, she was perfect-oh forgot-except for bringing the wrong refill drink-and not recognizing that it was clear and not dark before gently informed of the discrepancy as she placed it on the table. Maybe the oversight might have been understandable, but at the time, we were her only table. Just not the level of training commensurate with the aspirations of the menu.
Lastly, a beautiful stone-walled garden room with windows on three sides-two opening to attractive vistas-the third--and most expansive--opening on to a not-so-romantic parking lot though which the evening is unfortunately not enhanced by a steady stream of headlights through the glass, punctuated by the dancing reds, greens, and ambers of multiple traffic lights on a nearby corner. Hardly the allure of dinner in the country. Perhaps an investment of our dinner's take in a fitting window drape? And while we're at it, a picture, even just one picture-or something-to break up the stone monotony and bring some life and warmth to the wonderful structure now mostly sleeping.

Everything we had was excellent, service was good and server was helpful with suggestions. A little hard getting in to parking lot.

“One of the best in Bucks County”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

This was our second visit after our son and his wife raved about the place. Both visits were exceptional. The place is absolutely charming. We sat by the huge fireplace in the beautiful, rustic diningroom. The table settings include cut glass crystal...perhaps not authentic but lovely on the white table cloth. Service was impeccable. Cocktails were perfect. We ordered a salad and a crepe (crab/mushroom) for appetizers. Both were delicious. One of us ordered the bison steak for dinner, the other orderd the appetizer crab cake (which was huge and almost all lump crab). A request for a glass of wine with dinner brought a quick response and was poured direclty from a bottle of wine at our table. Hand written check presented beautifully...very chic. The prices are reasonable for a place of this calibre...appetizers $7 to $14, entrees, $19-$30...with a 3 or 4 course inclusive menu for $30. We love to cook and travel, and have been blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy great restaurants throughout the world....Bridgetown Mill House is one of our top 5 favorites. We just hope that flooding (the property borders Neshaminy Creek and was flooded last Septemeber) doesn't hurt this historic gem.
