Millwaters is in a converted mill with wonderful views of the river. There are several tables outside that would be terrific on a warm summer evening. The interior maintains much of the feel of an old mill with heavy timbers and some massive hardware. There is a small bar as you enter with tables along windows overlooking the rushing river. A couple of steps up offers a second dining area a little removed from the bar that looks to be a bit quieter. They have a nice wine list with several wines by the glass. They pour a generous and fair glass, not the thimble size that one finds more and more frequently. The menu is varied, leaning toward Italian, with daily specials. There is also a very reasonable burger menu. I ordered shrimp and asparagus scampi which I requested over rice. There was meager asparagus, but there were lots of shrimp. The tails were left on the shrimp, which is nice in a shrimp cocktail, but messy in a cream sauce when you've got to dive in to clean them. The tails were very dificult to remove, as well - tiny victims of clumsy prep. The rice was woefully under cooked. Bread was good and was served with top notch olive oil with herbs. A side salad was blah, but with crispy, freashly prepared croutons. My partner was very happy with a salmon burger and fries. Fries were fine, but somewhat stuck together. A side of their "signature" slaw was small, but excellent. All in all a very uneven meal. Its a terrific space, let's hope they get it together.
