What a management 👎
Decent food, at a decent price. Inside is very nice. So it would be overall a nice place to go with your friends... if the management wasn't this terrible. Denied a group of 11 athletes coming on a Monday night to have a chill dinner, because two guys were 20 years old, and nobody was gonna drink. Lost about $400 😂 and a bad review here. Deserves better. Not unhappy to go give this money to a nicer place.
$50 Was It Worth It?
We went on a Saturday night. The place wasn’t swamped, but steady. Our waitress was very nice and kind. This place is loud, we could not hear other talk. The food is small portions. We both had tacos and the meat was super dry. So was it worth it for the price yes because we had 3 drinks, but quality and atmosphere “no.” We won’t be back.
Went in by myself on a weekday and everything was great the food was hot and arrived on time and fresh. The service was great. My server went out of her way to bring me iced tea as I prefer it over hot tea. Will return again.
The Old Mill location is terrific. Beautiful setting in a historic area on the creek, interesting shops nearby
This was my second visit, both with friends. The food was delicious (me - the Willamette sandwich, Eggs Benedict. Friends - hash snd pork tacos), the prices reasonable, service very good on a busy day. There's a full bar, a full coffee menu, and a nice selection of teas. The outdoor seating is lovely, indoor very cozy. They were busy but we weren't rushed and had plenty of time to enjoy our meals on both occasions. The Mill location is off the downtown circuit of places to have lunch. I haven't been to the Taproot's downtown location.
Arrival Greeting Fail
The menu is unique and the ambiance is pleasant however, in my opinion, one of the worst mistakes a restaurant can make is to ignore a customer when he/she arrives. Three servers walked past me as I stood at the door. None acknowledged I was there. A wait to be seated sign was present. I realize servers can be busy but a brief “we’ll be with you in a moment” would suffice. Instead one server walked past me twice as if I was invisible. It’s like arriving at a house party and the home owner ignores you.
