Reviews for The Gin Mill

This is one of the old restaurant in Decatur . It is located in the downtown. Due to COVID, the sitting is limited and need reservation for in-house dining. The price of the food is above average. They have a good selection of different foods. It was a hot Friday afternoon when I was in a good mood for good food. At 4 PM , the dining room was almost empty. I ordered a wedge salad. It was great . It has lot of blue cheese. But the wedge salad was too small. The Rib eye was full review

Ordered medium steaks for both of us. One steak had no pink meat at all and was in the well done range. The other steak was extremely rare. The restaurant wasn't busy. I notified the waiter to let the cook know and requested they use a meat thermometer to check before serving. I understand restaurants have been struggling and declined to have the steaks redone since that is wasteful.

New in the area. Big crowd don’t mean good food. I wanted the banana foster cheesecake and lime calamari. They don’t have cheesecake anymore and the calamari was disgusting. Even the bread and butter was not good at all. My drink (sidecar) was tasty. My wife’s summer breeze was nasty. She complained about it. The waitress said “we sell a lot of them”. There’s nothing I can do about it.” The should have checked the lemonade or maybe they use water instead full review
