The Waterfall Views From This Connecticut Restaurant Are As Praiseworthy As The Food
Simsbury is a small town in Hartford County known for being one of the best places in Connecticut to live, according to Connecticut Magazine. That may be true, considering it’s home to Millwright’s, a charming eatery that sits inside an old sawmill. It also happens to be next to a stunning waterfall, so the views are as amazing as the food.
The Mill at Hop Brook dates all the way back to the 17th century, when The Village of Simsbury had it constructed.
The building has been extremely well preserved, making it a perfect place to house a restaurant.
Inside, the space is rustic but refined, charming, and cozy.
The beautiful historic setting feels a bit like dining in the past, although there are plenty of modern amenities.
But as amazing as the interior is, you won't be able to stop staring at the views outside.
Millwright’s overlooks a stunning pond and waterfall, which creates an incredible setting.
The food at Millwright's is just as delightful as the views.
Chef Tyler Anderson opened Millwright’s in 2012 after decades of experience in the culinary industry.
The food here is as local as it gets — the majority of the ingredients come from the nearby 11 acre farm they manage.
The menu has been praised by The New York Times, CT Magazine and Hartford Magazine, making it one of the most award-winning restaurants in Connecticut.
And believe it or not, this could be you view from your table.
We're not kidding when we say this place is perched on a waterfall.
And if you need a little nightcap or a more casual experience, just head to the basement tavern.
The cozy, intimate place is great for meeting a friend or a date, and they serve tasty upscale bar food.
Millwright's is open Tuesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Reservations are available for both the dining room and the tavern.
Address: 77 West St, Simsbury, CT, 06070
