We decided to stop when we kept seeing the Old Mill General Store packaging everywhere. This store is the center of the Old Mill in my opinion. You can pick up so many amazing products as found in the restaurants. There was product tasting for everything! The ladies were overly enthusiastic and excited to share preparation for the various mixes.... More

We ate here for lunch. The lunch menu was great. I chose the chicken & dressing and it was "ok". I like Cracker Barrel dressing best when compared to other restaurants. I ended up sharing my husband's Chicken Fried Steak meal and it was delicious. You get more than enough and will probably need "to go" plates. The meals are... More

We had a great time shopping and eating the Mill. Shopping was perfect and the meal was ok. Basic breakfast; nothing fancy. The service was great. Loved the pottery shop!

We found ourselves visiting this area a few times. There are several little shops, a distillery, a good restaurant, and ice cream shop, and a working blacksmith where you can help make you own item. Fun to spend a few hours, the trolley stops here, plenty of parking , public restrooms area, and moderate priced activities.. the mill restaurant has... More

Loved walking and looking at the stores around the square. I love the country type stores. Chickens are my favorite decor item and they have a lot of them. If you have never visited here then you should put it on your to do list.

Old Mill Square provides several options for shoppers. There is a candy/sweets store, a kitchen store, a working pottery shop, a general store, a Moonshine distillery, and a small working blacksmith shop. Other boutiques and small shops are also available. Eat at the Old Mill Restaurant or the Old Mill Pottery House Cafe for some wonderful food and shop 'til... More

After checking into our hotel, we decided to venture down to the Old Mill Square for dinner and shopping. The square is great and this is also the main area for where the trolleys begin. If you are lucky, you can park your car in the trolley lot and take the trolley up and down the Parkway. The night that... More

We left feeling suckered by the brown historic signs for this site. The only thing historic is the exterior of a small building that has been converted into a gift shop. The rest of the square is essentially a tourist trap.
