With its unique setting perched atop a waterfall in Simsbury, Connecticut, Millwright’s invites guests to dine in the 17th century mill with acclaimed, James Beard nominated Chef Tyler Anderson and his team. Featuring daily-chosen farm ingredients, the freshest and most select product, proprietary cocktails, and exciting wine menu, Millwright’s offers a new experience to the Farmington Valley farm-to-table dining scene. The culinary team understands the impact of the highest-quality fresh ingredients. Millwright’s kitchen thrives on local ingredients – grown, raised, produced, foraged and prepared – whenever possible. They also take the farm-to-table concept one step further. Millwright’s has partnered with a farm that will grow most of its organic produce. The “Inspired New England” cuisine at Millwright’s pays homage to the land, to the flavor-rich quality of local, fresh ingredients and to the time-honored cooking techniques that enhance the natural goodness of those ingredients.

It was our first dining experience at Millright’s. The location and restaurant itself was so inviting and lovely. The mural in the dining room was stunning. The service from everyone who tended to us was stellar. The menu was interesting, seasonal and mouthwatering. The food was prepared exceptionally. My partner is a chef, and was delighted with his meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our special occasion at Millright’s. We will definitely return. Thank you for making our evening amazing.

We had the chef’s choice and wine pairing. By far one of the best restaurants that I have been to and for sure one of the tops in CT! Tyler was in the kitchen which made it so special. And our waiter Ron was phenomenal and so knowledge. We will definitely be going back for more.

My husband and I experienced the chef’s tasting menu this past Friday evening and not only did it exceed our expectations, but it left us excited to come back in the very near future to enjoy it once again. Each course was well thought out, creative and absolutely delicious. The pace at which we received each course was perfectly timed out and our waiters did an excellent job with their presentation and explanation of each. Our main server, Ron, was both courteous and charming and did a suburb job of making our anniversary celebration very special and memorable . We really enjoyed every a aspect of Millwrights; from the atmosphere, to the ambiance, to the food, to the drinks, to the exceptional service. We will definitely be back very soon!

We were celebrating my husbands birthday. Making reservation through open table was easy and Millwrights confirmed the date and time. The dining tables were socially distanced and the window views were beautiful. The staff was courteous and prompt. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu with one of us asking for gluten free and no tomatoes. The food was exquisite, very tasty and expertly served. We had the wine pairings. This was our first visit and we hope to return soon to try out the food truck with roller skating servers and outside dining, which looked like fun (although perhaps a little chilly in the autumn evenings). A beautiful way to celebrate. 5 stars and a bravo to Tyler Anderson.

Celebrated our anniversary at Millwright's. Ron is the most amazing and attentive server and just makes the experience so special. Food/service are both superior. The descriptions of the chef's tasting menu and wine pairings are informative and quick. They don't miss a beat with serving, clearing and setting up the next course. My fav restaurant in this area and so perfect for special occasions.

The tasting menu is not to miss! I experienced food in a new way, and I consider myself somewhat of a foodie. I normally am not a lover of goat cheese but loved the dish made with goat cheese. I also have wine preferences but loved all the pairings. The service was impeccable. My husband who travels a lot and who eats at the most exclusive restaurants highly rated this experience. I can’t wait to go back again.

Our first visit to Millwright's for our anniversary was simply an amazing experience! When we made our reservation based on a friend's recommendation, we were prompted to let them know if we were celebrating any specific occasion, which we did. So upon arriving, we received the sweetest hand written card wishing us well and congratulating us on our anniversary, it was such a kind touch and blew us away. Then, Ron, Andres, and the rest of the staff treated us with the upmost care; we couldn't have asked for better. Further, the food was also incredible! Chef Tyler's menu and food combinations were indescribable. My partner especially enjoyed the swordfish and the chocolate desert, while my favorites were hands down Chef Tyler's signature baked New England clam chowder and the roasted duck. We will definitely be back again in the future!

Just had a spectacular meal at Millwright's Dining Room. Their prix fixe menu is an amazing value, a must-try if you are planning on eating out in the area. We tried the Hamachi Crudo and Heirloom Tomato Tart to begin. The Crudo was delicate and refreshing, with pickled plums I requested a recipe for. The Tart was savory and crisp, making the most of the season's ripe tomatoes. The Pork Belly and the Fois Gras Torchon were phenomenal--if you enjoy fois gras, spend the extra above pris fixe to try this! Light as air, with so many layers of flavor going on at once. We did the Beef Tenderloin and the Swordfish for the third course, both perfectly cooked and presented. I especially appreciate the reasonable portion sizes at Millwright's, because this meant we had room for desserts. The Blueberry Bombe and Zucchini Cake were both delicious. Service, as always, was excellent! Millwright's continues to be our favorite restaurant, one of the few places where we are reliably surprised and delighted.

We visited Millwright’s after they reopened from the COVID pandemic and everything was just as wonderful as it is any other time. The menu was limited but there was still plenty of variety and everything we had was delicious, especially the short rib bucatini which you could get as an appetizer or entree. They even took the liberty of splitting the appetizer into 2-small dishes since my husband and I were sharing. Always great service and fantastic food.

Although the restaurant was working with a limited menu, there was a variety of choices in all areas of the menu, and the drink menu was great as well. We ordered several different appetizers to share for the table along with our entrees and everything we ordered exceeded our expectations - fresh and outstanding flavors! The staff is doing an amazing job working under covid restrictions - we dined inside and felt extremely comfortable with everything they've done to make dining inside (this was our first outing to a restaurant since February) a relaxing and very enjoyable experience.

We finally got to make a reservation for inside dining after many tries for it after one great outside experience. Service was excellent and leisurely based on the new cleanliness and sanitary guidelines from the state and federal officials. We enjoyed our meals and had great food. We did notice that much later in the evening at home, the food had been much saltier than we are used to, and should have made a request to the wait staff on ordering to use little to no salt. Otherwise everything was great!
