Fun place with a good menu for any meal. You might even get to hear some live music. Definitely worth a visit.

A fantastic location with lots of potential. The service is reliably slow and mediocre-at-best. The food is reliably mediocre-to-good, but not worth the price. This is an excellent place to have a drink out on the patio.

We chose The Run of the Mill on the recommendation of one of our group who had been there twice before. After making a 6:30 pm reservation the day before, six of us were seated promptly when we arrived. This was the last really good...More

Richmond Golden Oldies Senior Center couldn't ask for friendlier service or better meals. We took Amtrack to Saco and ate at Run of the Mill. The service was extremely efficient as they got our large group seated right away and took our orders in a...More

Food was really good and had great beer selection. The wait was a little long but has a great area out back with cornhole, jenga and just places to sit and hang out. Perfect for a warm summer night. Would definitely go back

Had the turkey dinner, vegetarian special, lobster Mac and cheese. All were warm and tasty. The flight paddle of beers was delicious and above all the peanut butter pie was awesome!

Try to make reservations!! Even though we ate here on a Wednesday evening, there was still a 40 minute wait. That said, the setting was worth the wait. The restaurant is in an old mill building (hence the name) and overlooks the Saco river. The...More

The restaurant is huge, set in an old mill. At night you can hear the water running outside. It was a very busy and noisy Saturday night. The upstairs music made it hard to hear. There was no wait at 9:00 pm. Food was great...More

The Run-or-the-Mill is a great Brew Pub! It clearly has evolved... with both outdoor: and, indoor menus during the warmer months; and, they offer mostly their own brewed beer (my favorite is the Bug Lager); but, they have... More

The Run of the Mill is an English Style Brew Pub. We offer 7 beers at a time and rotate those between the 25 different varieties that we offer. Our menu includes traditional meals such as Fish and Chips, Pot Roast and Bangers and Mashed Potatoes. We offer daily specials and non-traditional fare, including many steak, fish and even vegetarian options. The Run of the Mill is family and local oriented and we strive to use local farmers, bakers and fishermen. In addition to great food, great beer and a full bar, we have live music Thursdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons at 4pm, as well as an open mic night on Tuesdays. Music starts at 8pm and goes till 11pm. We offer a large deck over looking the beautiful Saco River, a separate outside menu including incredible Fish Tacos and some great Grilled Pizzas.
