There have been several restaurants at this location but Millyís seems to have hit a chord. Located under a bridge in a renovated 19th century mill building, Millyís has the aura of a dive but they serve up good food and pretty good beer. Typical pub fare such as burgers, sandwiches, nachos, ribs, and the like, which are cooked the way you like them. The prices are reasonable. You can buy a sampler of their brews if you are not sure what you want to try. Friendly wait staff. They experiment with beer styles and the beers are likeable but not necessarily extraordinary. You can catch live entertainment. They are supportive of local musicians and have hosted "Battle of the Bands" events.
Visited on a Monday afternoon, was 1 of 2 customers in the place. Pretty easy to find and to park, very close off of 293. Big sports bar like place with the brewery right behind the bar, pretty large place. Had lunch here, the food was decent but nothing to write home about , french onion soup was good. They do flights of 6 or 8 beers at a time (2 oz pours), and had 16 of their own beers of tap. Service was really good, my waitres was quite helpful and kind. Beers were typical brewpub quality, some good, lots of meh beers. Pretty good value.
Busy place. Food selection is pretty good, beer selection is fairly encompassing. service started out fair, but improved greatly as business settled down. Quality of the food was very good, quality of the beers was excellent.
This place is awesome, especially for NH. The ambience is great with the huge copper kettles in the center. They have an incredible selection of interesting sours and lambics which again is nearly impossible to find in this region. The food is average food fare. Iíve had good service from most of the bartenders but a couple of them (the guys) suck. Truly an underrated gem in NH. Sure there are other local bars that offer a lot of beers on tap, but lets face it, itís the same shit, just lots of it. Do you really need 30 different pale ales? If you want an awesome assortment of fantastic beer this is the place for you.
Received an email about $5 off growler refills, since I was going to be passing through town, I figured why pass that deal up?! This is my second time here. Started with a sample box, literally a small wooden box with dividers for 6 sample glasses. Sample glasses are a bit tiny for my liking, approximately 2 oz pour. 15 beers on tap, including their Cafe Raz Stout (cask conditioned). Good sized menu covering all the basic pub fare, including a few surprises and specials. All seemed very reasonably priced. I love this section of Manch and the Mill look suits this place perfectly.
Stopped by on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch. This was an interesting place in the old mills section of Manchester (lots of old brick mill buildings). They have an interesting set up where there is a regular bar, then there is a long bar behind that where people can sit on either side (like a very long table, but it has a bar-esque feel to it). They offer a large number of taps (~12) with some interesting styles ("lambic", mild, a couple IPAs). Overall the beer was pretty good, the food was your basic pub fare. Apparently there are very cheap happy hour prices (wish Iíd known that! Although it looks like a good thing that I missed the music entertainment...). Overall, a cool stop and one Iíd go back to.
Visited this place once when I got stuck in Manchester overnight due to weather. There were a good number of tap choices available. The beers were average to slightly above average, but there was a pretty wide variety of choices across styles, so thatís good. The food and specials were so cheap that Iím not sure how they turn a profit. Standard pub fare food, but pretty tasty. I had a nice bowl of chili and a few beers and got out for like $18. Pretty amazing.
Millyís is weird! I want to say that their is a decent brewpub in town, and sometimes there is. Other times I go here and canít understand why they would serve that to customers. The staff is normally friendly and attentive. The food is usually decent for standard pub fare. The best deal is weekdays between 4 and 7 when appetizers are half price and normal drafts are 1 or 2 dollars. Weekend nights you will normally incur a cover charge and their will be a loud band.
Millyís is not far from on the way home from work for me. Like some of the previous posters have said this place is in a basement, its dimly lit and hearkens back to a time in my past. The beer makes up for those short comings and then some. They have a good selection of regular brews, and always have more that a couple of seasonals or limited edition brew. Every once in a while youíll get to try one of their cask conditioned brews. Get there between 4 and 7 and the drafts are a buck with half price appetizers. If you want to take some home they will sell you a growler.
