Not good. The food is horrible. Fish and chips was cold, pasta were bland, meatball sandwich was a disaster. Service was nothing to be desired. Avoid this place unless you want a beer on the patio and not food
Unclean beer, lacking service, generally disappointing.
Having recently moved back to Littleton, I went to the Old Mill with some friends last night. I knew it had changed ownership and names numerous times since I had last been there. I will not be returning.
The beer is okay if not a little light on flavor... at least it would have been, if we weren't all put off on drinking it after tasting the German Alt that was on tap. Absolutely terrible and improperly brewed... it had tons of diacetyl in it and tasted like dirty buttered popcorn, which to me suggests lazy or unclean brewing. I can make better beer at home.
After that, none of us wanted to drink the house beers and we were skeptical about how the food would be as well, so we all ordered burgers to be safe, so I can't really comment on the food. The menu reads like a tour of the world though, and there is no focus to the offerings.
Having decided against the house beers, I ordered a Hazed and Infused. What I got was a Killian's, so I sent it back, watched the bartender pour from the Hazed tap, and got another Killian's. I told them the taps were switched and the waitress said she'd have the brewmaster look at it when he got was in because "we don't know how to do any of that stuff." We asked if he was available, hoping to the discuss the infected German Alt, but unfortunately he was not. At that point I resigned myself to a poor experience and bit my lip, but honestly what kind of people are they employing? Apparently the kind that need a lesson in how to unscrew a tap handle and move it to the right tap.
I'm going to be telling everyone I know to avoid this place like the plague because the quality is terrible and the beer is unclean. After moving on to a different establish, we asked about the Old Mill and were told a rumor that the beer lines are 20+ years old because none of the owners have bothered to replace them. After my experience, I believe the rumor.
Stay far away.
Love the beer!!. Our family has been going to this restaurant since it was the 5280 Roadhouse. It is always good and always friendly. We met friends there last night and spent five hours on the deck. We had the best time and it felt like we were on our own patio at home. The staff treated us great the whole time. The never tried to rush us. We feel fourtunate to have a place like The Mill so close to home.
Top 5 worst meals I have eaten, ever.. I realize that the Mill is Littletons only local microbrewery, but it shoudl have stuck with being a bar. While the beers may be great (I went for lunch during work, so I couldn't tell you), the food was terrible. It seems that the chef thinks that a good substitution for flavor is grease. The salad came out of a mixed greens bag from Sam's club, the fish in the fish and chips is too deeply breaded to actually taste the fish, and the fries are under done. They have been out of clam chowder for a week, and while the Monte Cristo may be piled high with meat, it is covered by two peices of soggy french toast as bread, and served with a side of boysenberry syrup, instead of the traditional jelly. While the macaroni and cheese is tasty, again too much grease. The servers are great, but it doesn't make up for the food.
