I must say that the food is very good. Very small portions. Very cold if you are sitting in the front room by the door in the winter. The service was fine.

We go here several times a year for date night. Love the atmosphere, waitstaff, and food! Anniversary, Valentines, or any time! We don't usually bring the kids but I'm sure they can accommodate.

Don't let the name "tea room" confuse you. This was a little off the beaten path but worth the find. We went on Casual Thursday which featured $7 burgers and $1 oysters. Salads were good too. It was starting to get busier as we left around 7:30. Waiter was very friendly. I think she was the owner. Great dining experience.

This place is an absolute gem. The food is well thought out, using fresh local ingredients. Copper topped tables in a little cabin, with the mountains as a back drop. Can't say I've ever been any place write like it.

A real gem in rural Bedford county. Ate dinner there to celebrate a retirement. Great setting and views. Fantastic menu. Great presentation. Very friendly staff. Small so make reservations for sure. We very highly recommend.

We have been there a number of times and always great food and service . My wife and I had dinner there tonight and the Fried Chicken and Stacked Porkchops was fantastic and we got really lucky because tonight they had their famous Bread Pudding matter of fact we actually had them to save us some before we ever ordered...

Not close to much but a beautiful drive. Went for Sunday brunch. Great selections. I had the fried oysters over eggs, bacon, and grits. Wife had the shrimp and grits and loved it. Closes at 2 so go early.

We have eaten at several restaurants in the area around Smith Mountain Lake, and we've found most of those aspiring to more than sandwiches and wings--and many of those--to be mostly disappointing. Millstone Tea Room is the proverbial diamond in the rough. Outstanding. This is the kind of restaurant I love--small, relaxed, comfortable. It is is off the beaten path... More

This is my favorite local restaurant. The food is fantastic. I have some food allergies and they really are able to help me with those in the food they prepare. The food is outstanding and always fresh. The menu changes depending on the season, so you are always getting the freshest. Great wine selection, beer on tap and a bartender... More
