Old Mill Room is in an elegant setting. Service was good and attentive. Food was good, but overpriced.

Located at the Boar's Head Inn in Ivy, this restaurant is the place to go for a special meal or celebration. Sunday brunch is the best in Cville. You fell like you're in an elegant old English country estate. Ambiance galore. The food, though pricey, is well worth the cost. Also good for receptions and special events. Great staff.

We went for our anniversary as it was recommended from the hotel staff...of course...All of the dishes we tried were bad, from appetizers to dessert we were not happy with any of them. The steak that was ordered was provided to use well done after asking for it to be medium...The location was dead, not too many people. The food... More

The entrees are always excellent here. I have dined here several times and the quality of the service and and the ambient setting make this a first-tier choice for the Charlottesville area. Fall and spring are the most glorious times to walk around the pond before or after dinner.

We are new to the area and were encouraged to dine at the Boars Head Inn. It did not disappoint and truly enhanced my birthday celebration. The waiter, Kirby, provided excellent wine and food suggestions upon request and made the evening special. In addition, the entire staff actually made an effort to say Happy Birthday throughout the evening which surprised... More

While visiting Charlottesville we checked with Trip Advisor to find a nice place for dinner. The Old Mill Room did not disappoint! We began our dinner with the signature peanut soup (delicious with a pumpkin base and a hint of spice). My husband had the lobster bisque..also delicious. We both chose scallops with fresh asparagus and red peppers sautéed in... More

We strolled to dinner after rainfall to the Old Mill Room. The lights reflected off the wet walkway and besides the high humidity in the air and lack of accents, I felt as if I were back in time in Europe... I loved the fact that many timbers used in construction were from a gristmill dating back to 1834. My... More

The good news: the Old Mill Room still offers a wonderful buffet lunch with very good food in delightful, elegant surroundings and good service. The food is constantly improving and is now at a very high standard. The soups and salads offered as a starter are really delicious and varied. A smoked salmon salad is a perfect way to start...

We only had breakfast here, but found it over priced for mediocre food. There are better places to eat breakfast at the downtown.

Another wonderful dinner here, with great food and service. Pleasant, relaxed environment, yet quiet. Had trout, which was terrific, but everything there is. Good place for special occasion dinners. Adjacent bar also very nice --- more casual food, but excellent.
