I've eaten at Mill's Tavern twice in the past two months. Both times after arriving on the train. The first time, I think I probably tested the patience of the staff. A tree came down in a wind storm and broke the electric lines the train uses. So we ended up stopping in Connecticut waiting for a diesel engine to... More

Great staff, food, and I am obsessed with their spin on the affogato! Upscale yet casual dining, great ambiance, drink selection and menu.

What an incredible building in a great part of town. The inside has an upscale tavern look and feel with plenty of space and a wonderful bar. The service couldn't have been better. Our server was engaging and knowledgeable. The food was very good, prepared nicely and brought in a timely fashion. Never felt rushed. Looking forward to getting back... More

Yesterday the day we went was the first day of their spring menu. I had the swordfish and it was great !! Everyone else at my table (7) people had steak and they all seemed happy. Appetizers are very big so split! I had calamari and I must say very disappointed. Service was ok, I paid for all 7 people... More

5 colleagues for dinner. Very professional setting. Great service from the staff. The wine was a heavy pour and the duck was tender and flavored well. Fantastic experience

Mill's Tavern offered a varied menu, a hearty meal, and effectively friendly service. The lamb was perfectly cooked, and -- I must say -- a HUGE portion. My waiter was cheerful and helpful, but didn't try to make himself the center of the experience. (The salad wasn't as fresh as I would have expected, but the other courses more than... More

Great place to come for the happy hour oysters, little necks and shrimps. Doesn't look like it from the outside but different experience inside. You can make reservations and sit near the bar area. It can get a little crowded around there sometimes. Def more of a dressy vibe here though there were people wearing hoodies at the bar as... More

This is one of those situations where I'd probably give three-and-a-half stars if that was an option. Mill's Tavern is better-than-average, but not quite "very good." The decor is quite nice in a dark wood-cozy kind of way. Overall the food was good, but somewhat expensive for the quality. The rack of lamb was very tasty, as was the seafood... More

First, Stuffed Mussels... the stuffing was perfect about of herbs. Second, Seafood Risotto... beyond cooked to perfection. Third, Mac N Cheese side.... couldn't tell if it had bacon in it or...
