Having recently relocated from Connecticut to Tennessee, we are beginning to explore all of the wonderful restaurants, shops and attractions in our new hometown of Rogersville.
The Amis Mill Eatery is full of history as well as good food. The restaurant is across the street from the Amis Mill Dam which was built in 1781 by Capt. Thomas Amis (pronounced Amy) to feed the Amis Mill.
After choosing a table next to the warm fire, we began with KW’s Crab Cake which was full of lump crab and as tasty as any we’ve had in Maryland. It was served with a tangy remoulade sauce which was a nice compliment to the crab.
For the main course, I chose the 7 oz. Black Angus Steak. It was tender and juicy with a wonderful grilled flavor. Their beef comes from a nearby farm, as do many of their ingredients. They are true Farm to Table from smoked meats and hand cut steaks to fresh seafood straight from the Gulf.
My husband had the Chicken Pot Pie (part of Ann & Wendy’s Country Plates). It was served with smashed potatoes and hot baked apples which tasted just like the filling from an apple pie. It was a large pot pie filled with chunks of chicken and veggies, topped with a golden phyllo dough crust.
We couldn’t pass up the locally made desserts – blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream and coconut cream pie. A fitting ending to a wonderful meal.
In addition to the restaurant, the location has tours of the main house and estate including a blacksmith shop, trails, the dam and many more hidden gems.
The Eatery is open Wednesday-Saturday 11 am – 9 pm, and Sunday 11 am – 4 pm. In the warmer months you can choose to dine on the deck overlooking the dam.
There is a pavilion available for special events (weddings, parties, etc.), as well as an arbor for wedding ceremonies, and creekside cabin rentals. The venue also holds special events throughout the year. Check the website for current schedule. https://amismill.com/eatery.html
