I love.historic waterside mills that have been repurposed like this. The mussels Dijon were exceptional. The calmari and shepherd's pie were great as was the ale.

First time eating here over the weekend, can't wait to go back! Our waiter Richard was awesome, so attentive with great tips on the menu. We tried a flight of their 7 beers, (one of the best deals) & lunch was the vegetarian reuben which was wicked good, but the mac n' beer cheese was amazing- I'm still craving it!... More

This restaurant is in my town. I have never had a bad meal there. However it can be very noisy at dinner. Great bar.

This is a pub-lovers' pub. Huge, rambling, lots of side rooms, deck in summer, and great brews/food. We went for dinner before Saturday theater and the place was packed by 5:30. Ended up at a small table in the bar, but had superb service and the largest, freshest piece of fish I had ever seen. Chowder was fine, but a... More

We visited this on a Saturday for lunch with a large group. We had fantastic service and the food was terrific. Everything is handmade here, and the chicken salad, sweet potato fries, and the buffalo chicken wrap were all memorable. Casual, but high quality with great service. We would definitely come back.

We ate lunch at this brew pub that has excellent service. Very good pub menu, I had a tuna burger that was delicious, served with home made potato chips. Good selection of craft brews on tap. Very reasonably priced fare in a old mill setting. If your in Saco, this is a very good option.

We went here for lunch and conversation with friends. Our food was very good; more than I could eat ! A little noisy but we managed to talk anyway and we were not hurried by anyone to leave so they could have the table.

I go here often so I guess it's time I left a review. The Mill is a fairly standard brew pub as far as food and beer offerings. But I've always thought the food was quite good. There are a few misses on the menu (Bangers and Mash are meh) but for the most part you can't go wrong with... More

I arrived expecting more of a bar type atmosphere. They brew a lot of their own beer and have live bands. Well Tuesday night my wife and I went in for dinner. Turns out it's a great place to eat. Read the history of the mill and take a look at the pictures on the wall. The food was really... More

The Run of the Mill is an English Style Brew Pub. We offer 7 beers at a time and rotate those between the 25 different varieties that we offer. Our menu includes traditional meals such as Fish and Chips, Pot Roast and Bangers and Mashed Potatoes. We offer daily specials and non-traditional fare, including many steak, fish and even vegetarian options. The Run of the Mill is family and local oriented and we strive to use local farmers, bakers and fishermen. In addition to great food, great beer and a full bar, we have live music Thursdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons at 4pm, as well as an open mic night on Tuesdays. Music starts at 8pm and goes till 11pm. We offer a large deck over looking the beautiful Saco River, a separate outside menu including incredible Fish Tacos and some great Grilled Pizzas.
