Installed above its first-floor sister eatery, The Dam Deli, The Mill surrounds diners with airy, barn-like architecture flooded with natural light and updated with hardwood floors and crisp white décor. The all-American menu also features contemporary twists and runs the gamut from juicy half-pound burgers to Asian-inspired tuna. Large windows invite the sun inside to illuminate hearty lunches, as well as to reveal stunning views of the Marion waterfront's whale population. Come evening, the bar's martinis and cosmopolitans wash down entrees and lubricate intimate conversations. The Mill's abundant floor space lends itself to frequent dancing during special gatherings, such as wedding receptions and monthly union meetings for soul-train conductors.
