Don't let the name "tea room" confuse you. This was a little off the beaten path but worth the find. We went on Casual Thursday which featured $7 burgers and $1 oysters. Salads were good too. It was starting to get busier as we left around 7:30. Waiter was very friendly. I think she was the owner. Great dining experience.

This place is an absolute gem. The food is well thought out, using fresh local ingredients. Copper topped tables in a little cabin, with the mountains as a back drop. Can't say I've ever been any place write like it.

A real gem in rural Bedford county. Ate dinner there to celebrate a retirement. Great setting and views. Fantastic menu. Great presentation. Very friendly staff. Small so make reservations for sure. We very highly recommend.

Not close to much but a beautiful drive. Went for Sunday brunch. Great selections. I had the fried oysters over eggs, bacon, and grits. Wife had the shrimp and grits and loved it. Closes at 2 so go early.

We have eaten at several restaurants in the area around Smith Mountain Lake, and we've found most of those aspiring to more than sandwiches and wings--and many of those--to be mostly disappointing. Millstone Tea Room is the proverbial diamond in the rough. Outstanding. This is the kind of restaurant I love--small, relaxed, comfortable. It is is off the beaten path... More

This is my favorite local restaurant. The food is fantastic. I have some food allergies and they really are able to help me with those in the food they prepare. The food is outstanding and always fresh. The menu changes depending on the season, so you are always getting the freshest. Great wine selection, beer on tap and a bartender... More

Bacon-wrapped dates, fried oysters with deviled-egg dressing, original cole slaw with NO mayo. The creativity and quality of the food is always worth the trip.

Visited this place for a birthday celebration & it was tremendous! Such a cute & quaint place and the food was amazing! We sampled the bacon wrapped dates, crab dip, oysters and others for appetizers all which were so yummy. For dinner, after lots & lots of deliberation & mind changing I went with the chicken & dumplings and they... More
