Visited in October 2010.
Looks like I missed the boat on the house beers. When I was there all the beers were Two Brothers beers and the server first told me that they were house beers and then changed the story to that they didnt have any house beers on at the moment.
Service was alright, prices were alright, atmosphere was also alright. Didnt eat. There were many people in the place at the time so I didnt get to experience what the other ratings are referring to. Not that it matters now anyway.

Very quant type place...like an old hunting lodge...bartenders were all hispanic, which just kind of seemed strange...good service, mediocre beers...fairly generic.

This is more of a large, log lodge-like restaurant that makes a few beers than it is a brewpub. Lots of restaurant seating and a fairly decent bar set-up. The reason I was there, thoí, was the beers. They had seven of their own on tap when I was there, all drinkable if not exceptional. The common factor was that they were all slightly watery. The other beers were all macro-swill-pisswaters. This is more of a spot for a dining experience than it is a drinking one.

Bar in the restaurant is not handicap (or in my case, stroller) accessible. Kind of a rustic lodge feel to the whole place. Didnít get any food but got every one of their beers. Itís $6 for 4 fluted 6-oz. sample glasses. Hence, I got two sets of the sampler to get all 8 of their tapped beers. Beer was better than the beer at Brass (across the street) but itís nothing to write home about. A decent stop to make, but we probably wonít venture back here.

Nice place to eat I guess. The price points are in $10 increases. Burger = $10, pasta or anything else $20, then $30 and up. They had a beer sampler that was $5 for 4 beers and were at least 6-8oz samples. Pretty nice. Cool atmosphere especially in the bar. Check this place out if you get a chance.

Bad beer, bad food, and slow service make for a very poor brewpub. I would not go back.

Millrose has an incredible look and feel to it... a creation spawned from one manís obsession with barns. This place is composed of no fewer than SIX barns that William Rose had moved to this location and assembled to form a massive complex of Brewery, Restaurant and General Store.
Cozy dining in comfortable armchairs amidst an abundance of rough-hewn and shellaqued wood. Soft lighting and quiet jazz add to a cozy, romantic feel. (In other words, bring a date, wear a tie and leave your drinkiní buddies at home.) In all seriousness, I did feel underdressed dining in blue jeans, but the bar area seemed relaxed yet "manly"... so you and your buds could hang out there wearing your ball caps and sneakers.
Food was excellent, although highly priced (a chicken breast dish rounded out above $20). I decided to just go balls-out and ordered a peppercorn Prime Rib that was cooked to perfection. Chicken finger appetizers were some of the best Iíve ever tasted. Both the Cream of Chicken and Beef soups were hearty and delicious. Two satisfying meals, appetizers and enough beer to please a RateBeerian and his wife totaled out to around $100, including tip.
Beers were average at best, but the dining experience made the visit worthwhile. As mentioned before, this borders on upscale dining with prices to match.

Millrose is the exact opposite of itís trendy neighbor across the street. I almost expected sawdust on the floor. Service was VERY slow but the beers were good and the place was loud. Loved it. (4/4/10/N/15)
Rerated 8/11/07 -- For some reason, I got the totally wrong impression of this place least year. VERY pricey food, meager selection of mediocre beer, and inattentive service lead me to really shift my rating.

Definitely a northwoods hunting lodge feel to it. The beer was pretty bland and in one case, offensive. Didnít try any food. The multiple big screen plasma tvs had ESPN on.
