We just returned after eating at your outstanding restaurant. After traveling from Asheville, NC and spending a fortune on mediocre tourist food, this was absolutely the best. Ribs, seafood, chicken, Caesar dressing and peppermint ice cream were all superb! Thank you so much. We have a property at Smith Mountain Lake and pass by here from our home in PA frequently. I see us timing our arrival to the lake or departure from the lake around eating at the Mill Street Grill. :) Better yet - we definitely need a restaurant like this at the lake. Any thoughts about expanding.q. It would be a huge hit! Sue Cathcart

Wow! My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at your place last Friday night! We were staying the weekend at the Stonewall Jackson and a co-worker strongly suggested that we step over early, saying that the place would be packed. We came in about 5:15 pm and were told that there was a bout a 15 min wait. We were seated right on time in a cozy deuce near the front. We were then greeted and our dinner was started by a gentleman that we found out later is the owner. He was warm and friendly and suggested just the perfect sauvignon blanc for my wife and a tasty ale for me to get us started. Our server, Andy, took over and did a fantastic job with his menu suggestions which we enjoyed immensely. My wife had the Cajun shrimp with fried green tomatoes and I had the babyback ribs. Everything was outstanding right down to the jaegers we had for dessert! I see now that all your fine reviews are truly deserved. Andy and the boss did your place proud up front as did the kitchen with our meals. Thanks so much for a great time, a fine meal we will remember, and for your kind hospitality.

After reviewing comments and menus from several area restaurants, we chose the Mill Street Grill for it`s menu selection and prices. We started with the butternut squash bisque and shared a full rack of baby back ribs. The soup was delicious and the ribs were the best we`ve had in a long time, very tender with perfect seasoning. Also loved the homemade bread and flavored butter. The peppermint ice cream was a nice touch. Troy, our server, made the evening enjoyable by anticipating our needs. If we lived in area, we would definitely be `regulars` at the Mill Street Grill.

Thank you and your staff for a wonderful TC luncheon on Tuesday. Everyone was so impressed with the lights --just like Tavern on the Green. I was also surprised and so pleased as none of that was up the afternoon before--somebody was working very hard and we had the pleasure of it. The lunch itself got rave reviews--the sandwiches were especially delicious and they’re not many scraps of leftovers. The service was kind and efficient and very warmly friendly. I think your efforts have earned Mill Street some additional business and certainly reinforced your good reputation. I and the TC club members appreciate all you and your employees did to ensure a lovely Christmas gathering.

We dined with you last night and I can honestly say was better than the first time I had dinner with you right after you opened in 92. Don`t get me wrong, that night was wonderful and special too. In fact every meal with you over the years has been special. I live further away now, but when I`m in Staunton, there`s no place I`d rather be. You are, without a doubt, one of my favorite restaurants of all time. I mean that in a global sense, I`ve done a good bit of traveling in my time, and you guys make my top ten list.

Sept 2 2010 Was recommended this retaurant by our hotel and we ended up eating there on both nights of our stay in Staunton. Probably one of the best meals on our 18 night trip to Virginia.The Staff were lovely and helpful and I would definatly recommend this place for others visiting the area. The complimentary hot bread and icecream at the end of the meal was a lovely surprise. Well worth visiting ,from the outside you have no idea of how busy it is inside and the extent of the menu.


Excellent! - Sep 25, 2010 This place is fantastic! We went before seeing a show at Black Friar`s and it`s so convenient. The food was amazing. I had honey-bourbon salmon with amazing garlic mashed potatoes. My boyfriend had the ribs. The salads and bread were good and they even brought peppermint ice cream at the end! Also, one of the best Arnold Palmers I`ve ever had! The service was friendly and prompt and seemed to anticipate everything we needed. I only wish I lived closer so I could go back!


Fantastic gluten free menu - Aug 30, 2010 Like many others, my wife and I were passing through Staunton and saw the wonderful reviews of Mill Street Grill. We couldn`t have been more impressed with the service, the food quality, and the outstanding gluten free options. Our server was completely familiar with what was required for gluten free food, which is not common at most restaurants. The decor, ambiance, friendly service and special touches were terrific. Highly recommended, especially for gluten free options.


THANK YOU to Mill Street Grill, for a wonderful evening I shared with family this past weekend! Your hospitality went above and beyond, the cuisine and service were truly extraordinary! This was my first visit to Staunton, and a memorable one that I look forward to again and again! I wanted to forward you this photo of your wonderful pineapple upside-down cake! I must come back with my husband, that is his favorite! Our dinner was so special Sat night, thank you and your staff for being so outstanding! I came with my sister, brother-in-law, and their four little ones. (The May family) Thank you for a wonderful evening! Sincerely, Susan Scheff

Another great anniversary weekend in Staunton topped off by a wonderful meal at Mill Street Grill. Two years ago we were lucky to pick dining at the Mill Street Grill and have not had as good a meal of ribs since! When we decided to go away again for our 37th anniversary we chose to return to Staunton and to this wonderful restaurant. Tonight our wonderful server was Kelly. He was attentive to our needs and answered any questions we asked. He made our meal even more memorable. Another couple arrived next to us and asked about the Mill`s St Louis ribs and I was very glad to tell them how perfectly prepared mine were. We love traveling to Staunton and we will always dine at Mill Street. Thank You Kelly and Mill Street for another anniversary dinner to rave about!! MaryJane and John Pieper Gretna, VA. 24557

We had our family reunion at the Mill Street Grill in Staunton, Virginia. The quality of both the service and the food was superb! The bartenders and the servers catered to us so well that we were able to enjoy the night and each other. Thank You, Mill Street Grill!

As a vegetarian, I was thrilled with the number of selections and could see why the Black Bean Burger is "nearly famous." A friend told me about Mill Street Grill and showed me the menu. I couldn't wait to get there and I was not disappointed when I did.
