About the Old Mill Room
The epicurean heart of Boar's Head was built from the timbers of an abandoned gristmill along the banks of the Hardware River, which dated back to 1834. The relocation of the mill was an opportunity to preserve and transform a treasured Virginia artifact. It had survived burning despite the orders of Generals Grant and Custer during their march through Charlottesville in the Civil War. Indeed, it had continued to operate some 60 years after the war's end.  For 27 years running, our Old Mill Room has earned AAA's Four-Diamond designation in recognition of its culinary artistry, distinctive Virginia ambiance and superior service.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.  For reservations, please call 434.972.2230 or click here to reserve online. Click here to visit our holiday page with complete 2014 event information.
