    Wonderful place, wonderful people. Order a wine bomb, you won't (maybe) regret it.

    Great staff, good food, and AWESOME shows of all kinds. It's just off the Ped Mall and the people are cool even if a few too many of them are sipping PBRs.

    The Mill, when Pam and Keith ran it in the 80's and 90's, was a wonderful place to go...
