We recently enjoyed Sunday brunch at this charming restaurant nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains between Lynchburg and Bedford. Whenever we go--at least three or four times a year--we feel as if we are in the European countryside with Michelin stars dancing nearby. The restaurant has a cottage-y atmosphere, with rustic decor and large windows offering views of the pastures... More

This place is amazing! The meals are consistently exquisitely prepared. It is small, with an intimate feel. We have chosen this establishment many times for birthdays and out of town guests. Reservations are a must to avoid disappointment. It's just a little out of town, but easy to find.

On our recent jaunt to Bedford for a little hiking along the Parkway and a visit to the National D-Day Memorial, my wife and I enjoyed a Saturday night meal at the Tea Room. It was a nice treat on a wet, rainy night. We were well treated by several members of the wait staff, enjoyed an appetizer of bacon... More

while visiting Bedford we journeyed out to the Millstone Tea Room for dinner. Worth the drive, although it is not that far. Very reasonable prices and the food was off the scale. We started with dates wrapped in bacon. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I had salmon with vegetables. The veggies looked like a picture and they... More

I found this restaurant on line and it looked awesome so my wife and I decided to try it. I live over an hour away so we left early and arrived about 5:30 and as we walked in we were told that the entire establishment had been reserved for a party but "please come back again". I drove for an... More

What a culinary treat! My husband & I love fine food, and our evening at Millstone was delightful. Outstanding server...thank you, Charlotte! We loved everything from the Caesar Salads, herb buttered baguette, Hubby had steak. I had the oysters. Desert. Menu was a fascinating read! Don't miss this little gem....but make reservations. ♡

So I'll admit it was late, we were on our way to our B&B and looking for anyone who served food after a very long but beautiful hike to McAfee Knob. This was the first restaurant we saw. We were so glad we found it. I had trout while my husband had steak. Everything was fresh and absolutely delicious. The... More

We read the great reviews and were curious since we were staying nearby. It doesn't look like anything special from the outside, but don't let it deceive you. We were driving by and took our chances stopping in without a reservation. The restaurant was full, but the hostess kindly offered us a table on the covered porch. We ordered Caesar... More

Brought my friends here on 8/2/14. Nina was our server, and Charlotte was close by checking on us. I've been to many restaurants over the years and this is ONE of the best. I had the Salmon and my wife and friends had the Steak Diane. It was made perfectly, and the whole meal was outstanding. I did make reservations... More

We had a delicious meal at this tiny, out of the way place, worth the extra few miles! Wonderful shrimp, quail, and chicken dishes. The mussels as an app. were perfectly done. Yummy bread too. We sat outside on a lovely deck and enjoyed a family of kittens who played at our feet. Check it out!
