Ate at Millside Gracehill this week and what can I say...the Millside team have gone above and beyond to ensure their customers are kept safe and the food was amazing as it always is. They haven't missed a trick, hand sanitiser on arrival, all staff wearing either visors or masks, screens at till, appropriate signage so everyone knows what's expected and the gorgeous new screens to divide the tables fit perfectly with the already beautiful decor which also make the seating like beautiful little cosy booths. I had the sizzling chilli chicken, piping hot and beautiful meal, my hubby had the steak which was cooked to perfection as he always has it rare and is quite fussy but we really couldn't complain about anything, everything was lovely. Well done Millside Gracehill team, you've all worked hard to adapt to the new norm and you all deserve credit for your amazing efforts. If you haven't tried here you really need to go, you won't be disappointed.

Such an efficient, safe and professional service from Millside. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, I got a takeaway for dinner, as part or the offers on a Friday night. The food was excellent, and portion was fantastic. Easily called in, and I stated the time I could collect. The 2 female staff were so friendly and professional, they deserve credit in the current situation. They probably do not realise how positive an effect they have at the moment, by offering their food to take home. The offers are great, and compete with other takeaway establishments- but with such a varied choice of menu. I’ll be back, both takeaway and sit in (when possible).

Excellent 3 course lunch. Plenty of choice on the menu, good friendly and helpful service in a lovely atmosphere and building and food was beautiful. Very child friendly and they have their own menu which is veryvreasonably priced. If you ordrr the 3 course special (choice of anything from the menu) you have the option of taking your dessert home with you.

As another review has said I also don't know what people eat at home or elsewhere for that matter. We had been recommended to eat here during a conversation about eateries around Ballymena, the setting in gracehill is beautiful and really special so we had great expectations for our meal out for a family birhday. I had ordered the steak and chicken combo as a change as I never order steak out down to the fact it's usually disappointing. Once again, steak came out looked good and was eager to try first mouthful and a stared at my wife as to say should I spit it out would that be to rude ? It was sour smelling and definitely off. One of my family members had a steak also I tried a small piece which was not off to taste but he had I smothered in mushroom sauce so it's hard to say. The breaded chicken was watery and probably frozen, kids meal .. sausages and chips .. frozen style chip shop sausages which is always disappointing for any restaurant to serve . All in all the quality was very poor for a £24.00 main and decor is like a cheap wine bar style. The entrance hall also with a tourism office and what not .. just didn't do anything for us and won't be back, doesn't do the area justice.

My husband and I went to Millside for weekday lunch. We hadn’t been for some time and having looked at the menu online was looking forward to some lovely food. My husband chose prawn open salad and I opted for baked goats cheese on a bed of rocket with plum sauce with a side of sour cream and chilli fries. We waited quite a while, but our meals were worth the wait. The prawn salad was huge and varied, with a large portion of prawns and just enough sauce. It looked delicious. The goats cheese was mouthwatering, absolutely delicious. Throughout the meal no-one came near us, didn’t check if everything was ok. We waited to be offered a sweet or coffee but after a long wait we decided to pay and leave. The restaurant wasn’t busy and my husband could see from where he was sitting, 3 of the staff just standing at the counter chatting. Service is very poor, needs to be improved...I feel this destroyed our enjoyment of the whole experience. Millside please take note, customer service is very important especially where catering is concerned.

Where do I start? Firstly the starters came out. My son had Bang Bang chicken, complete with a long hair!!!! Next the mains. My plate was reached into my hand and was soo hot I'm lucky I wasn't burned or dropped the plate. I warned the next person to be careful and the waiter laughed. My son ordered a medium steak but got a well done steak which was dry due to being overcooked. My husband and granddaughter ordered a sizzling dish. The sides arrived but no mains. When we all had finished our meals My husband had to go down and ask where their meals were. When they eventually got their meal, the granddaughter got a huge dish of meat and OIL. She wanted no veg but my husband's meal had just a few pieces of meat, and a huge plate of onions with a few mushrooms. The kids had icecream and there was 3 sticky toffee puds. They were gloopy and just not good. The waitress was great. She only works on Monday nights and could not have been more apologetic. She could see the problems and knew they were unacceptable. There was money taken off the bill, but it was for my birthday so a nice meal would have been better. I hope the next person gets a better meal than we did. I'm sorry but we won't be back for a long time. It used to be a great meal. Times have changed.

I used to love the Millside, both the service and food used to be great! Visited today for family lunch and were left very disappointed. Service really poor, took ages to even be welcomed and shown to a table despite the restaurant not being busy. Food was poor too, chips undercooked and rest of food was just bland and nothing special.

Ordered a takeaway this evening and I stupidly got the time wrong and arrived to collect my order an hour earlier than I should have. The Manager was so helpful and wouldn’t turn me away and arranged for me to get my order very promptly without a problem. Thanks to the chef and staff. Food was lovely and good quality as always. Would definitely recommend.

As one who is still not comfortable with eating out ETC I decided to try one of my favourite restaurants for a carry out last night. As with all my previous eating experiences at Millside Gracehill I was not disappointed. Meal ordered and picked up on time. For those choosing to Eat here everything has been done to make it a pleasant experience. Entry by front exit by rear. Hand sanitizer, good floor markings and signage. Tables well spaced, screens erected, staff serving food wearing face shields. Obviously a lot of thought put into this. My carry out was excellent and piping hot. Staff at all stages were friendly,courteous and efficient. Anne runs a great ship and has an excellent staff. Thanks again. Hope to be joining you in person soon. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

Andrew said the lamb chops he had were the best he has ever had and he has tasted lamb in many places. As usual the service was great - unobtrusive but always observant. Our friends loved the wide ranging menu . Caroline had two starters instead of a started and a main and that was more than enough for here We are so lucky to have this as our local

We booked Sunday lunch for a special family meal. Great range of options for starter, mains and desserts, on the Sunday lunch set menu, which pleased everyone. They catered really well for dietry requirements for our group. Lovely, chilled ambience, which meant that we could relax and enjoy the time together. Food turned up promptly with everyone being served within a very short time, which is great when there are 14 of you in a group. Everyone was very satisfied with their dishes and portions were generous, especially desserts. Finished with a complimentary tea or coffee. Delicious. Staff are amazing and so hospitable. Looking forward to our next visit.

A very friendly restaurant with extremely helpful staff. One of our group has a dairy and soya allergy and the staff were extremely careful to ensure that nothing contained any dairy or soya and double checked everything that was ordered. They even brought a list containing ingredients of all the sauces to the table to check there was nothing that would cause a problem allergy-wise. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. We enjoyed our meal and had a lovely walk afterwards around the historical village.

We had come to the area because we had been told, that not only was it a very unique place with a lot of history about the Monrovian settlement but that there also was a very good restaurant here. The Millside turned out to be the place where locals were coming for their Sunday lunch. A first for us, and Rachel our server welcomed us with a lovely smile. We both went for the 3 course and it was very tasty indeed. We did share a starter, Garlic mushrooms and spring rolls. Then we both enjoyed the roast with all the trimmings. For dessert one had the icecream with fruits and the other had the cheesecake and both went down a treat. The ambience of this place is lovely and we will definitely be back.
