This rustic restaurant gave us a 20% discount since we had been to the Maritime Museum. The service was good, but I think we ordered the wrong thing. The BLT was not done. We would go again to see the planes land at the airport...More

We're glad to know you enjoy the Red Mill. Cheddar ale soup and wings are long time favorites, as are the fish and chips. We're sorry the latter wasn't up to snuff, and hope you told your server about it. Thanks for your your recommendation!...More

Description
Open May - October, the distinctive decor featuring rough-hewn beams, antique farm equipment, and walls covered in Basin Harbor nostalgia makes The Red Mill Restaurant a resort favorite. The renovated sawmill features the best fresh and local food ingredients, along with signature Vermont brews, including our own Red Chair Ale. It is a casual dining experience you will appreciate. The outdoor playground and horseshoes offer playtime for all ages.
