The Mimslyn Inn has been totally renovated. This was my first visit since their renovation. Let me say, they have done a spectacular job renovating the old girl! It just exudes southern charm. There are 3 restaurant areas within the inn--Circa '31, which is upscale, front porch dining and downstairs there is the Speakeasy. We had dinner at the Speakeasy. The decor is attractive and clean. The theme is the prohibition era. There is a bar for seating and tables and booths. We sat in a booth which was clean and comfortable. We were greeted in a very friendly manner as soon as we entered. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. They have several options on beers and a Mimslyn drink which seems to be a peach version of a fuzzy navel. Their tea is also very good---fresh brewed, without being too strong.
We had appetizers to share---the artichoke crab dip was just so-so. The flat bread points that came with it tasted like they had been frozen at some point in time. The other appetizer was pork wontons. They were very attractively presented, but were also only so-so. For the entrees, we had meatloaf (very good!), chicken pot pie (fine, but not exceptional in taste, but again, very well presented), a tenderloin sandwich (very good) and a salmon burger (very tasty.) The only change for the salmon burger would be for the burger to be larger OR the bun to be smaller. The homemade potato salad is very good. It is well seasoned with bacon added. The fries are good, but nothing to get excited about. The atmosphere in the place is excellent though. It's a comfortable place and would easily be a place you could hang out often. Several folks were greeted by name when they entered, so maybe the locals thinks so too. So, here's my advice--Go! Hang around and eat, but skip the appetizers--at least the ones we had. We'll definitely visit again.
