The moment we stepped in I loved the place. The decor and ambiance is a cozy date setting. Coat check and Valet. The menu has so many good options. 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...

This was my first visit. The interior of the Mills Tavern reminded me of one of my favorite restaurants ever, The Savoy Grill, in Kansas City, Missouri. The classic dark wood interior, the waiters wearing white shirts and aprons. It took me back to the 1960s and 1970s and many fond memories of great meals with friends and family at... More

My wife and I were in town for a get together and a friend recommended this place. It was exceptional from the moment we walked in and we're greeted to the time we left everything was awesome. The hostess checked us in and took us to our table immediately, and took my wife's coat to the coat room. Our waiter... More

We wanted to get in early, but I guess we found out why there are no reservations before 8 - the Buck a Shuck ends then. We got there about 2 to 8, but by the time we bellied up to the bar, the oyster bar was back to full price. We went with 4 -- and they were delicious.... More

The atmosphere is cozy, warm, and comfortably elegant. We like to eat at the tables in the bar area. There are bar seats, and also more formal table settings. The cocktail menu is interesting, and they have an award winning pastry chef. Our favorite is the raw bar and most especially the calamari. They use just the right touch of... More

Nice atmosphere, nice bar, good service. Somewhat loud because the restaurant is all open and tables are not far from each other. Food VERY expensive and just ok. The Cobb salad, which four of us split, was done in layers and served in the shape of a large piece of lasagna. I don't like blue cheese, so the salad didn't... More

Mil's Tavern was kind of a disappointment. We waited for awhile as it was a WaterFire night. The best part of the visit was the craft beer (Kentucky Bourbon Barrel beer) as the food was certainly subpar based on the cost. Our waitress was high on the Short Ribs but I found them to essentially just being a piece of... More

What distinguishes this restaurant - along with the delicious food was the service. Lynn - a member of the wait staff - saw me waiting a very long time for a taxi and volunteered to drive me back to my hotel . This is called truly going above and beyond.
