We ordered 4 dinner specials- the salmon with a honey mustard sauce. It was delicious. The vegetables were cooked perfectly. So glad we went. The service was friendly and helpful.

Had the Florentine pizza omg delish! Jack burger outstanding too. Only complaint would be the cranky bar tender. She wasn’t friendly and kept complaining about people not stocking the bar. Major turnoff! Beautiful atmosphere in the bar besides her.

Have eaten in all places in Old Forge. This was the worst. Veggie burger so dried out even my husband couldn’t pull it apart. Took it back and no one seemed to really care. Won’t bring guests here, was embarrassed.

Ordered their special fried scalps and fried clams. Got a side of vegetables. The scalps and clams were over cooked and the vegs were still frozen in the middle. Yes frozen could not even cut the vegs in half.

After reading recent reviews regarding changes that have transpired since the change in ownership, my husband and I were hesitant to visit The Old Mill during our annual trip to Old Forge. We have more reason than anyone to dislike the changes- we came here...More
