Highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Great service. Cozy atmosphere. The steamed mussels and French bread were fabulous!

This is a small gem in the country for a very good dining experience. There is dining inside or outside on the porch when the weather is good outside. You can expect the service to be very good, but slow as each meal is made...More

We were told about Millstone during our stay at the Cedar Post Inn Bed & Breakfast. We arrived at the B&B about dinnertime, and the restaurant was only about 10-15 minutes away. The food was excellent! Quite a find for this out-of-the-way spot. I highly...More

We had a nice dinner before checking into Cedar Post Inn. I had the burger (just a bit too salty) and my husband had the shrimp. I'm so glad we didn't endure a long line in Bedford and instead went for a more unique option.

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...More

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.

I'm no expert on gluten-free, but if it just means, as I'm assuming it does, wheat-free, I think there are quite a few options. Quail, pork chops, steak, grilled or broiled seafood. There were several side veggies offered... More
