“Memorable dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had a wonderful dinner at a wedding reception held here. Every course was above average and the whole meal was memorable for the food, atmosphere and service. Red pepper soup, a butternut salad with some kind of flavorful nuts, melt in your mouth filet mignonette - the most tender steak I ever ate, hot dinner rolls always there when you wanted one and rich chocolate mousse dessert with fresh fruit and cream on the side. The servers were excellent! Always at your elbow when you needed something, quick to serve and clear dishes, and always serving in the proper way with a professional demeanor. The Boars Head is very old and full of charm. The grounds there are so attractive with a lake and waterfall, big oak trees, and a mix of brick, flagstone and cobblestone walkways. Its lovely to stroll around after you eat. One of my most memorable meals ever and I've traveled and eaten in some really nice places.

“Sustained excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

We had dinner in the Old Mill Room prior to a college reunion. Our party of four was seated immediately at a fine table. The apps and meals were cooked to perfection. The service was attentive but not intrusive, and the wine and food recommendations were on point. Nancy enhanced our experience with her service. Wonderful experience...can't wait to get back.

Thank you for the terrific TripAdvisor post regarding dinner in the Old Mill Room prior to UVA's Reunion Weekend! We work hard to exceed your expectations without intruding. Nancy was delighted that you were pleased. We can’t wait to welcome your foursome again.

“Met every expectation for a delightful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

From the initial greeting by our server Nancy, to dessert, we were pleased. Delicious local fare and plate presentations impressive. Coconut pineapple dessert! The photo shows creme brulee' and a box of tissues. Our daughter had called the restaurant earlier because she wanted to give us dessert for our 26th anniversary. Sweet surprise for a delightful evening!

I have eaten at the Old Mill Room several times and it is very nice. The food is always good and everyone is friendly. Overall I would recommend the Old Mill Room. It's a nice place for a celebration and is lovely at Christmas.

“Much better restaurants in Charlottesvile”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Seated ed for Mother's Day dinner next to the bussing table. Waiter rushed and preoccupied by 5 people at next table. Each time part of our order arrived it got cold waiting for him to transfer it to our table. Food was mediocre and expensive.
