On arrival they right away recognized our reservation and we were shown to a lovely candle lit table in a corner. Our water glasses were instantly filled and before we even opened a menu, our waitress was with us taking drink orders. The whole evening went that way. We asked for advice on the wine and the owner/ sommelier was immediately at the table. The soup of the day was great and our tasty main course arrived quickly and hot. Desserts were limited but delicious. If this is a restaurant you haven't yet visited I urge you to give it a try. We will certainly be back and often.

The food was excellent. I had the charcuterie and short rib and my husband had crab and corn fritters. We both had key lime cheesecake for dessert. We would highly recommend all of the things we tried! Our waiter was very accommodating and timely. The only thing I didn’t like was having a table right by where the wait staff was entering food orders and listening to all their banter throughout the evening, as they seemed flustered and like the evening was not going according to plan. However, nothing happened that would keep me from going again to enjoy the wonderful food!

We were really disappointed in our experience. We understand delays based on our current workforce clement but we had to ask for things multiple times like straws. The waitress took our order twice. We were supposed to get one of our entrees comped because it needed to be sent back and didn’t come back until well after the rest of us were done eating but when the bill came out, it was wrong and had to be adjusted. It would have been helpful for things to be written if that would help keep everything straight. The time delay was not an issue at all, but the servers forgetfulness was more concerning. We then felt like we were being shooed out the door when the waitress came out and asked to get our dessert for us to go. Not sure we’ll be back.

As always , GRMI excels. Conversations with CHEF are always fun, but better yet is getting a personal recommendation. I was stuck between four entrees....two I had had before and two new. After some chit chat about the baby I asked his opinion and he was spot on. LOVED the Short Rib.

Service as always spectacular. These folks are the cream of the crop.

Dined during the 2 for $59. You can not beat the value.

Thank you Brandon for bringing this Gem to us.

We arrived on time for our reservation, but waited almost 10 minutes before our waiter came to our table. He was very harried and seemed overwhelmed. The cocktail I ordered had a wonderful description, so I expected something fruity and refreshing. It was watery and had very little flavor so I returned it and got a martini that was excellent - though it was $10 which is quite pricey. The salad with a delicious dressing and steak was excellent and cooked perfectly. The dessert was divine! Once the restaurant started to clear out our waiter became very interactive, but he wasn't for most of our meal, as we had to chase him down for everything. He never once stopped by just to see if we needed anything. The food was excellent but they definitely need to get more servers that can actually pay attention to the customers.

We loved our visit to Glen Rock Mill Inn. They were able to accommodate a change in our reservation with no problem. The room we were seated in was very rustic and comfortable right by a fireplace and the bar. We had the Mill Manhattan, a feature drink and Old Fashioned and Martinis which were all very good. We decided to take advantage of the Prix Fixe menu that includes an appetizer entree and dessert. Our party had the chicken cordon blue, short ribs and the special halibut. Everything was delicious! The chicken and beef were served with the most Interesting Brussels sprouts and we couldn’t get enough. Our dessert were the lemon raspberry cake, pineapple upside down cheesecake and the Smith Island cake and all of them were great. The wines were good as well. Would love to return when we’re able to eat outdoors. Weather did not cooperate.

We had an excellent dinner with our daughter and 10-year-old grandson. It was fun to expose our grandson to fine dining—with candle light, live piano, and a full complement of silverware, unlike the usual more casual dining experience. Our server was friendly and professional. All in all, a great experience.

We enjoyed our dinner at Glen Rock Mill Inn last night. The food was quite good, service excellent, and the little patio where we dined outside is charming. Our only problem was the noise level from hot-rod-type motor noises emanating from just outside on the street in Glen Rock. I imagine that the management of Glen Rock Mill Inn has no control over this, but it really did impact our dining experience in a negative way. Sounded like none of those cars had a working muffler! This was unfortunate but, again, probably not something Glen Rock Mill Inn can control. We hope very much that our next dinner on the patio will be more tranquil, but perhaps we will instead opt to have our dinner inside. That's a shame, since the weather last night was perfect and the patio setting is really quite lovely.

The Glen Rock Mill earned my loyalty by their strict adherence to the COVID regs--they are real community members. Our Father's Day dinner there was terrific, as always: gorgeous cream of crab soup, a lovely charcuterie boards, soft crabs and an amazing seafood pesto. We'll be back.

What a truly special place! Everything about the Glen Rock Mill Inn is superb, from its period decor and preserved interior to its classic menu with innovative twists (the grilled chicken cordon bleu is absolutely delicious, and the triple chocolate mousse cake is divine). This doesn’t even begin to take into account the service (Leland is a wonderful host!) and the atmosphere (cosy and stylish, at the same time). It is truly welcoming, too—guests are invited to walk around the restaurant, which features museum-like exhibitions. What I was struck most by, though, was how personable the staff are. I brought my father here for a special Father’s Day/wedding anniversary meal (it would’ve also been my parents’ 51st). My father is very hard of hearing and has difficulty reading menus at times. Not only did Leland and the chef treat him like gold, they walked him through the specials and spoke to him with respect; the chef talked with us at length and even came back later to check in and make sure our meal and service were to our liking. The first thing my dad said to him was, “We’ll be back!” My dad doesn’t praise things lightly, so I knew this was quite a compliment from him to all. Thank you, Glen Rock Mill Inn, for making this day so wonderful!
