In the old days the Grist Mill was the place to go. Not so much anymore. We've been there twice and both times were not impressed by the food. The salad bar is great but you can't mess that up.

This was a great find outside of Providence RI in Seekonk. The ambience in the old grist mill is lovely. Beautiful little mill stream. I had a delicious prime rib, perfectly cooked. My friend had sautéed lobster that was to die for.

We went our last night in Seekonk; wish we’d known about it sooner. We all had steaks, filet or rib eye. Cooked perfectly. Delicious salads and they also served slices of their Cindy bread. Wow! It’s built on a lake with a waterfall. Very scenic....More

First let me say the the interior of the restaurant is very nice, cozy and rustic. Other than that, the food was barely average. My husband and I went for our anniversary. It was the end of February so the fireside table was just right....More

this is a question for the restaurant itself, but it's a great place to do something like this and they now have a nice 'room' with bar to host such functions. it's a wonderful location!

Some of the meals include the salad bar and some you pay extra for. The salad bar has a little bit of everything so to me it is worth the extra money. I do not know if you can have the salad as an entrée.
