Great spot to hear local performers while having a delicious dinner and cocktails. Also offers a great lunch menu and scrumptious dessert items.

I love their cinnamon buns! Pastries are amazing. Small homey atmosphere. Clean. Visit a real gristmill and learn it's history Don't go there because I want more for myself.

Well worth the 7-miles from Dingman’s Ferry, we came twice and sat outside on the rear patio. Scones are excellent - you have to try them. In fact, everything we had was delicious and the staff was so friendly, even bringing our dog a bowl...More

I stopped here yesterday morning while driving north after several days visiting a relative in the hospital. I was really hungry and stressed. Someone in town suggested "most people go to the Waterwheel Cafe" and gave me directions. I used to bicycle around this area...More

We've eaten at this restaurant before on several occasions. My husband and I love Vietnamese food and this place is the closest place to us (45 minutes) that serves it. My husband specifically requested that there be no coriander in his noodle dish. The waitress...More

Rare combination of good atmosphere, great service and affordable prices. We had nice breakfast/lunch with family. Place was busy, but that didn't compromise service. As mentioned you can also have a look on working waterwheel in the same building.

Stopped here on the way to a friend's cabin for lunch. There was no wait, and the servers were polite. Food was average, pie decent. Probably best to stick to dessert!

For over 20 years the WaterWheel continues to be the best restaurant in Milford! For breakfast lunch and especially dinner! Cafe or bar, welcoming and fun music in the bar!

Situated on the Sawkill Creek, in Milford, PA the Waterwheel Café, Bakery & Bar was started in April of 1989 in a restored 19th century water-powered mill, which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally built in the early 1800's this lively example of American history is now in action and its doors are open to the public. Water rushes over the three-story high water-wheel, driving a series of shafts, gears, pulleys and belts that once powered the stones & grain-milling equipment, all visible through the glass walls of the Café & Bar. Starting at first as a bakery & lunch café the Waterwheel has grown into a full scale restaurant, bakery and bar-serving breakfast & lunch daily with dinners being served Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings. Waterwheel's customers are comfortable in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The kitchen staff consistently prepares a fresh and flavorful eclectic menu that excites not only the palate, but the eye as well.
