Fine dining, no doubt. However, my fish was overcooked and as many, many posters have mentioned, the service is sloooooooooow and inattentive. This should easily be a five star restaurant. The restaurant itself is lovely.

We went to the Sugar Mill for a friend's birthday in February, 2016. We made the reservation for 7:00 p.m. and were seated at 9:00 p.m. It took half an hour to take our orders and another hour to bring our food, we started eating...More

Around Xmas we threw out of the restaurant and banned for life a group of vulgar loud mouthed and abusive former patrons. Of course they promised to " destroy us on trip advisor" as revenge. But can we suggest you take some lessons in fiction...More

This is an excellent restaurant with knowledgable staff. It has a great atmosphere and I think a new decor. The hotel hosted a brilliant champagne party with people all over the beach and we loved it. We were worried it might go on all night...More

Having heard good things about the Resturant, we decided to celebrate a friends birthday there. On arrival we were shown to our table in a very busy dining room which created a cafeterior type atmosphere. Service was slow and disjointed and when the food arrived...More

To be honest Matt our restaurant is not really aimed at people who can't spell "cafeteria". Maybe you should stick to places where they have pictures of the food above the serving counter.

Enjoyed a beautiful candlelit dinner at Sugar Mill. Get there early and make a reservation! Lobster was excellent.

Our on-island dinning experiences are not exhaustive, but the Sugar Mill is easily the best we have encountered. The waterside setting, the historic structure and the meals themselves are really excellent. We went back six nights in a row because we liked the menu and...More

I love the remodel! Our Family has always loved the food here. Very Romantic for couples, with candlelight the mood is set (even with the kids tagging along). The food is melt in your mouth gourmet. The kids enjoyed the new lobster tank, and my...More

As returners, we are impressed how the new owners have taken a perfectly nice restaurant and turned it into a Macdonalds. It's lost its atmosphere, the tables are crammed together (not that it was full) and the clientele, fond of taking selfies and generally playing...More

As the owners we were unimpressed how you you criticise people for taking selfies in restaurants and then post one as your TA photo. We were also pretty unimpressed with your dress sense for a top flight restaurant. We saw that sweat shirt you wear...More
