We stopped in for lunch. This is a very nice restaurant. Lunch included a chicken taco and a pulled pork grill cheese that was spectacular! The soup was apple squash and was delicious. A nice classy gourmet restaurant.

We have been to this restaurant a few times and have been pleasantly surprised. They serve a nice variety of options on their menu and they have a very nicely designed room which makes it very cozy and allows for some privacy and distance between the tables. I would definitely recommend this place for dinner.

Great food and a lively atmosphere abounds on New's eve at the popular upscale hot spot in Thornbury. The service is friendly and fast, and the celebratory menu serves up added sizzle and variety to the already delectable staple menu. The Mill is a standout choice for fine dining in the Blue Mountains!

As always, the Mill provided exceptional service (Meagan, one of our favourite servers was working) and incredible food. We ordered lobster tail with their special new years salad which exceeded our high expectations. The meal was finished with their apple caramel creme brulee, which for anyone who loves sweets is a must. It was a perfect way to start the... More

Such a fantastic location being right on the water with a warm and inviting and tastefully decorated interior as well as warm, friendly and very attentive staff. The food is outstanding; the portions are large and the dishes are prepared with obvious attention... More

We visited on a Saturday night around 8pm. The room itself is nice but extremely loud. I understand that is time dependant and may not always be that way, but this was not a cheap night out for my wife and I and the fact that people were almost right on top of us BELLY laughing, made the evening feel...

Drove up to the blue mountains on business and were delighted to find the Mill Cafe. Love the room set up in that they break it up with low walls and tables are well spaced. We had a terrific server who made great recommendations. Definitely recommend the turducken burger! As well as the chocolate hazelnut cheesecake which came in a... More

We decided to have lunch on Saturday and the place was busy but we were able to get in. The service was good but the food let us down. Small portions (about 10 fries) and the fish was tough and cold when served. The other meal a burger was about the same quality. The salad was excellent but couldn't make... More

Wow, what to say about this restaurant...the food there is absolutely amazing, we were at The Mill Cafe for lunch. Had the mussels for an appetizer, the presentation was so impressive you almost didn't want to eat them...but when you did the taste was incredible. Our main meals were really really delicious and dessert (raspberry cheesecake in a mason jar)... More
