This used to be a great place to eat. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I have been to this place a few times in the last couple of years and it was closed. I have heard that ownership has changed so maybe that has something to do with it.

Food was great. Enough to feed several people with one order. The price includes several items: soup, salad, meal, and dessert. The wait can be a little long depending on the time of year and time you actually go in to eat. It was worth it.

My sister in law did not rate this as one of HER favorites. However, we had an excellent meal. It has a cozy log cabin atmosphere that is great at the end of a long day. We both got the fried seafood plate which was very good and, had a plentiful portion. I think the bar attracts lots of locals... More

I eat at this restaurant every time that I visit Old Forge and have never been disappointed. They are good for lunch and dinner and have a good bar for those who are interested

We take an annual trip to Old Forge and always get a dinner at the Old Mill around 4 PM. Somewhat pricey, but well worth it. We will be back next year.

Terrible service. Didn't think we would ever get waited on. Food took forever to be served and was cold. Food quality was much less than mediocre. Would have been better off at a McDonalds. Very disappointing, indeed. With all of the food establishments in Old Forge, I don't know how they stay in business. Except for preying on unsuspecting tourists.... More

The food is family style and delicious. The appetizers, salad and entres were all served in a timely fashion. The atmoshere was family friendly, but as couples meeting... More

Old building that's well liked, but old school crowded dining room with bad lighting. Really need to spruce the decor up with local work and lights along the ceiling beams so it becomes charming. People are locals, so nice. Family style offerings and they're homemade. If u want cheap, quick, pub fare, the bar area is newer on the other... More

The waitress , I believe it was Jenn? Was awesome!! Went above and beyond for us. She was busy but was very attentive to all her tables. She was great when we had a special request for my very picky eater Grandson!! I couldn't thank her enough. The food was perfect and came out all at the right times. Top... More

I was pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. I was not expecting such a cozy place and tasty lunch. I had the fish sandwich and my husband had a salad. Both were very good and served up fast. The restaurant décor is very Adirondack and fun. You could eat outside but it was a bit breezy on the day we were... More
