If you are eager for an evening of frustration and disappointment, The Cookin' Mill is just what you need. On three occasions I have visited the restaurant for breakfast and been told that several menu items were unavailable because the ingredients were not in the kitchen. I received one outstanding omelet, but was greeted by two horrible omelets on subsequent visits. When I inquired due to the reason, I was told that the first chef was no longer at the restaurant. There is a good reason for this- the owner tends to not pay her staff. In fact, she writes them paychecks drawn on an empty account (is that legal?).
One night a group of 6, including myself and a few friends, went to 'the Mill' for a pizza dinner; the restaurant prides itself in having a great brick oven. After THREE HOURS of waiting, receiving incorrect dishes, and being ignored by the staff, we finally ate a lackluster meal.
If these examples are not enough to help with your decision to dine at The Cookin' Mill, then there is more! Occasionally you will arrive to find the restaurant closed, whether due to a lack of staff, a lack of patrons, or failure to pay their electric bill. Your service will be poor due to the staff hired for absolutely bottom dollar (usually paid under the table).
One would think that the owner would be in the restaurant working, greeting customers, or at least cleaning, but that is not the case. In a restaurant that seats probably 8 parties throughout the day, an owner needs to buckle down and do everything possible to win some business from the local community. Only then will the restaurant survive.
