The Mill Room at Boar’s Head Resort

The Mill Room is the signature restaurant at The Boar’s Head Resort, but its wonderful lakeside setting and creative menu make it a worthy stop even if you are not staying at the resort.

This AAA Four Diamond restaurant offers cozy inside dining with hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and intimate booths. Outside the terrace overlooks the lake and is the perfect spot for a balmy summer night.

For breakfast quality ingredients make a huge difference and the restaurant uses local, cage free chicken, Kite’s Ham, Edwards Sausage, their own garden grown produce, Meadow Creek Dairy products and Greenberry coffee.

At dinner you can feast on unique items like Wild Mushroom Toast with sherry goat cheese cream & basil; Mountain Apple Salad with apple, arugula, goat cheese, rice wine vinaigrette; Corn Meal Fried Virginia Oysters with fennel salad and caper remoulade; Molasses Roast Duck with braised cabbage and leeks with smoked bacon and duck fat potatoes; Beelers Farm Duroc Pork Chop with sweet potato fondant, pearl onion, red pear, mustard demi and Braised Rabbit with Carolina dirty rice with gumbo sauce, rock shrimp, mussels, andouille and rabbit.

Very nice wine list with interesting choices and very fair pricing. Excellent selection of Virginia wines from Barboursville, DuCard, Michael Shaps and more. Multiple pinot noir choices from Oregon (my favorite) and a good selection of red Zinfandel including Turley and Ridge.

ROMANTIC QUOTIENT: On a balmy summer night on the Terrace, there is nothing better.
