I have to say ranks as my worst almost dining experience ever. Made reservations for Buffet remembered this place from many years ago, upon entry the smell almost knocked me out. Nasty, dirty, dark, disgusting atmosphere, food looked like it had sat out for hours. Take my word for it avoid this place.

At 6 pm, only one other table had customers (they waited even longer) which should have warned us to leave then. Atmosphere: dingy. Cleanliness: awful. Service: terrible. Food: even worse. We waited almost an hour for food that was tasteless and cheap.

So we drive three hours to check this place out for having a rehearsal dinner. Didn't even want to get out of the car, but we were meeting other people there. And they were already inside. Horrible, and dirty, and people were actually eating there! Wow! It's dingy, dirty, and smells of mold. I can't believe the health department hasn't... More

Been here a number of times. It's quaint. Built in an old building. Inconvenient if you have party members with special needs. Food is nothing special. The Amish place near the turn is better.

I had lunch here with my family today and it was actually pretty good. This is one of my Grandmother's favorite places, and as we were in town for a visit, it was her choice. The atmosphere is very dark and dingy for sure, but the service was pleasant and the food pretty good. In particular, the fried chicken and... More

My wife and I recently dined at The Old Mill, along with her parents. I have eaten there 3 or 4 times before. The first time was a great experience. The second time a little less great. The third time not great at all. And finally, the most recent time was pretty poor. To be fair, I love the dimly... More

This restaurant is HORRIBLE. Just a few years ago it was decent & used to have a nice family atmosphere. Now they seem to be cutting corners wherever they can, from decreasing the buffet offerings, to cutting down on utensils like crab crackers, to offering poor quality food and cutting down on waitstaff. After having a horrible bout of GI... More
