Unfortunately this restaurant left a bad taste in the mouth of so many. The New Owners Dennis and Theresa Kennedy would like to invite everyone to come back for a dinning experience that is nothing but the best. Please come join our family and rediscover The Old Mill Restaurant.

Unfortunately The Old Mill, or as some know as Mill & Pub, left a not very nice reputation for this place. The business closed down in October of 2011 and was bought in November by Dennis and Theresa Kennedy. With the Kennedy's purchase of this beautiful historic building they brought in Chef Daniel Silverio with a completely renovated amazing menu for the taste buds! We are focused on showing anyone and everyone that The Old Mill Restaurant is a family oriented atmosphere that you will continue to want to visit on a regular basis. With our highly trained staff to meet all your dining experience needs on a day to day basis or for your larger family catering needs.
We enjoyed our brunch today. The atmosphere was nice, but we didn't like having to valet park. Two things were disasters in our opinion. The breakfast bar had bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, biscuits, gravy and cheese grits, but no egg entree'! The gravy was loaded with garlic, and I mean loaded!! If you wanted an egg, you had to go to the omlette station and wait in line to have it made. There was no carved beef, but a pot roast. The only other meat was hot buffalo-type chicken fingers. The two veggies were corn and sweet potatoes. The corn was DRENCHED IN GARLIC and nearly inedible. The dessert menu included a dried out bread pudding, a decent cheesecake, a cobbler and some doughnut holes. That was all. With all that said, we will go again, hoping they will correct the over-garlicky items....it's close to home and we got a senior citizen's discount of $2.00, which made it $12.99 each.

We were very disappointed - $10.95 for 3 mushrooms, vegetables hard, tasted uncooked. We asked that the vegetables please be sent back and cooked, they came back the same, and the waitress had an attitude. Service was slow and it was not crowded at all when we arrived. The trout was good, the shrimps in shortpants big special was simply very plain tempura shrimp, like from the Chinese take out. Alot of hoopla, no big whoop. will not return

Located in old downtown Acworth, you'll find a wonderful old grist mill by the RR tracks, that has been beautifully restored. Once inside, you will be lured by the aroma of tantalizing food cooking in the kitchen. I was dressed casually and felt right at home. The food is exceptionally delicious and platted beautifully. Service was perfect.

Then, we couldn't decide on which dessert to eat so the manager made us a dessert trio! We had chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling, the most amazing red velvet cake with buttercream icing, AND the creme brule with fresh berries and whipped cream on top! We had great service and felt very special without having to spend a fortune for all of the food and alcohol we consumed! Highly recommended!

Spent a Friday evening there with some friends hoping to enjoy a wonderful meal. Very disappointed! Expensive salty meal. I do have to say that the place is really neat inside! Wouldn't go back.

We used to love this restaurant and were regulars. We made reservations on a Sat. night and got seated outside. No one ever came to wait on us, even though we saw servers walk by. We finally went back to the hostess and were seated inside. Still, we were ignored. We left. We emailed and then wrote a letter to the restaurant and never even got a reply!!! Latest update: We went for New Year's Eve (3 years later), thinking we'd give it another try. BIG MISTAKE! We waited an hour and 15 minutes even though we had a reservation. When we came in, the hostess said it would be a 15-20 min. wait. HA!!! People were annoyed and walking out. When they finally seated us, they were out of everything and the service was bad and unprofessional. The seats were sticky and the food was boring and below average. We are NEVER GOING BACK!!!

My son took his date here about six months ago and had such a great experience that when it came time to pick a place for prom night he insisted on going here again. So I made arrangements for 29 Seniors to have dinner in the Savannah room on their Prom Night. The staff assured me they would take good care of everyone and have the Seniors out promptly at 7:00 to head to their Prom. The restaurant was ready and waiting when our seniors arrived, The Savannah room was beautiful, the Food was wonderful, and the servers and management team took exceptional care of the entire group. These seniors were very happy. I highly recommend this restaurant for an intimate dinner or large gathering. Thank for making my son and 28 other Seniors night special. By the way I even got a phone call the next day from the restaurant just to make sure everything went well and to let me know how beautiful everyone looked.

Buckhead quality food right here in downtown Acworth. I couldn't wait to check out this restored flour mill along the RR tracks and was not one bit disappointed. My friend and I enjoyed a light lunch and we were both pleased with the quality of the food, presentation, service and fair pricing.

The owners of this establishment did a fantastic job restoring a late 1800's flour mill. Makes a very interesting place for a dinner. The service is always friendly and the food is above average. They have very reasonable prices on food and wine.

After wanting to try Old Mill we got a Christmas gift certificate. First, the main parking is valet, so while they were fine, we're usually "park ourselves" types. We had reservations, so were promptly seated -- right in front of the swinging kitchen door. We hesitated looking for other options, which made the server nervous. We sat when she said "it's pretty low-key" back here." Unfortunately, low-key meant someone busting through every 10 seconds to reveal bright lights & noise. Then, there were the kids. Some guys had their daughters out, though they were busy talking while the 3 girls put their handprints all over the windows, banged forks on the tables and ran back & forth. So much for the relaxing Sat. night out. The food was okay -- the bacon-wrapped shrimp & grits appetizer was $11, but surprisingly large - at least 5 shrimp, but unnecessary bbq-type sauce. The lobster casserole a bit spicy and light on the lob. Pan trout was good. Bread good, but they didn't offer more; brocoli very hard; sauteed corn had too many peppers in it, but okay. Martini good. The food came out timely, but server got busy and let our water glasses nearly run dry. About 5 minutes after asking, she filled them. After another 5-10 minutes, she returned & we were ready for the check. It was ok, but when dropping $60 on dinner for 2, you just expect a little more.

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. It was absolutely lovely. While there was a long wait, it was well worth it. The atmosphere and decor is very nice and elegant. It is a bit pricey, but for a special occasion it was worth it. We will definitely return!
