Greedy, unethical owner and server...



I went to Old Mill Brewery with a Groupon yesterday. The Groupon was for $40, for which I paid $20. I have used dozens and dozens of Groupons and have never had any other restaurant add charges because I was using a Groupon. The issues that I experienced were these:



They upcharged FULL MENU PRICE on the food we had BECAUSE we used a Groupon. So, for an item that was $15.99 on the full price menu we were charged $21.39 with the Groupon upcharge, I was also charged a $1 upcharge on one other item. They also added a service charge of 18% to our ticket for a party of 2, which is usually added only for parties of 6 or more in the majority of restaurants.



The point of buying a Groupon is to get a good deal, and they definitely left me feeling insulted and ripped off instead.



The food and beer don't even matter, because of the greed of the owner and the server.



If you are a Groupon user, beware of this restaurant. Where the Groupon said "get $40 worth of american pub fare and drinks for $20", I actually got $40 worth for $34.88. That is NOT how Groupons work. They were greedy and unethical, and I am disappointed and will not be returning.

We've eaten at many, many places in the

We've eaten at many, many places in the Denver metro area and this is probably our most favorite place to go for breakfast/brunch or dinner. We go at least once a week, with or without the Groupon. The place is always bustling.

The $3.00 mimosa's served for brunch are to die for and served in very generous portions. One is usually all you need. The breakfast menu is very diverse and the things I've tried were very good.

The dinner menu and specials have not failed to please us either. The Prime Rib served Friday and Saturday nights is tasty, the burgers are good and cooked to order (my favorite is the Chili Cheeseburger) Portions are more than generous. Happy hour specials and daily specials are also good.

The beers, oh my goodness the beers. My SO never liked beer until trying the Passionfruit beer, he's now a believer. I would suggest trying a sample of each of the fruit flavored beers. They are all so good.

The booth seats do need some attention but overall the atmosphere is very nice. Love to sit on the pation when weather permits. Service can be a little slow at times but they are attentive.

my wife and I are touring local microbrews, and after reading the scathing reviews of the place I was compelled to leave my own. This place is average for a bar - it was clean, didn't smell bad, we had EXCELLENT service from the waitress, and the food was really good - I had the meatloaf sandwich and she had the sausage sandwich - the guy next to us had a good looking burger too. It seems a tad on the pricey side for what it is, but I'm often called cheap. The down side is the beer - don't get me wrong, some drinkable brews here, but not as good as I was expecting. to their defense, the place was packed and they're probably run dry after the holidays, so they were out of a few brews I wanted to sample (stout, porter). This is a really small brewing operation, and the downside is that a few of the beers were still green. The second general observation is the light hops usage - which I like - over hoping seems to be fad these days. The real surprise here was the pils - I usually pass them by, but this one was really good. The wheat also ranked high - another surprise since I don't like wheat beers. The Lager and the red were undrinkably green, but would have been really good after a bit of aging. The brown was our favorite for the night, and she really enjoyed the apricot pils as a desert beer. The holiday brew was surprisingly hoppy in the lineup, so they can, but generally choose not to - so light on the hops is the style for the brewery. In summary, this is a neat little place with decent food, a little pricey, but in line with the downtown littleton strip, that has an overloaded, low capacity micro brewery on site. From an outsiders perspective, judging from how busy it was, what they were out of, and the green beer, this place needs another fermenter or two and/or a bright tank just to keep up with local consumption - lest quality decline causing demand to drop off.

Part 1.5 At this time the Hus...

Folks this may be the worst place on EARTH.... On Friday December 9, 2011. We had a simple party of 7 (6 Adults and one 9 yr old child) whom was looking forward to the food and further fellowship after the Church Christmas play. So I fully recommend looking at the numerous other Yelp reviews prior to patronizing this disgusting establishment and just never trying this place EVER! 51 min. to get the appetizer, 30 min to get our first beer....not good. When the Apps did arrive they were so soaked in grease they were untouchable... The beer was forgettable and the service was very poor and quite unprofessional at best. We were sat 40 feet from the bathrooms that had an overwhelming stench of reeking urine smell and every time someone opened the door it just flooded the back room with the freshly stepped into the pot-a-potty smell. The employees were using the back door on the other side of us as a place to smoke and when they opened that door we kept being inundated by their cigarette smoke.

To be Continued.....

The sound that came out of my...

The sound that came out of my mouth was enough for all to step back. My friends contained me and we backed out of the foyer. Once stepping outside and my wife came back to see just in time the owner from the other side of the door pointing at me thru the glass with his finger like a gun said, "I will KILL you!"...I felt like he was running to the back to actually go get a gun and ambush me at the back of the restaurant where the parking lot and my car was located. So I called 911 not only due to my whole party being assaulted verbally and then me physically but by the THEAT to KILL me was unacceptable by any normal human being and required law enforcement to make sure my friends and I were safe to leave this hell hole after such behavior.

Littleton Police arrived and did an investigation. The place has cameras with red lights blinking like they were on and in working condition but the Owners Daddy and then LAWYER...yes LAWYER showed up and said they were not working. Because they knew I did not even lay a hand on the staff yet I am sure they got a nice show of the young owner and his very young staff man-handling me!

I stood out in the cold for 3 hours with my friends in 20 degree weather while it all came to the conclusion this was going to be a 'he said, he said' battle in court. The officers expressed our party of seven had one-in-the-same story when everyone was interviewed separately, while on the other hand officers received 20 different stories from the staff members inside the brewery. It was so bad inside that the officers came out and asked me if I hit two girls, I said "NO!" Then they came back and said that they just talked to both identified women and they stated that I never touched them, one even said on record that I was just trying to get out of the restaurant and they felt bad for me. Littleton Police said they could give us both a ticket and we could settle it in court or I could just walk away and file a complaint with all the others to the Liquor Board and Health Department. The Officers were very sympathetic to me and my friends even sharing with us that they have receive so many bad complaints from the Old Mill the owner is just burying his brewery a deeper grave and highly recommend another restaurant. The Littleton Police have already filed a Complaint with the Liquor Board against this establishment (not the first & surely not to be the last as long as the doors are unlocked) because they touched a customer in a physical manner when it was not necessary!

I have filed complaints with the BBB, Health Department, Liquor Board, Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Littleton.

The Old Mill is an unworthy establishment of even being rewarded by a single penny from anyone within ear shot of this story, so do not even think once about patronizing this place as long as the current owners are in the process of running it to the ground, steer clear while this ship is sinking. You would be better off going to McDonalds (where we ended up at the end of the night) which is located at the end of the block by the Old Mill; McDonalds did not smell like a Port-a-Potty, it was clean with a nice modern decor and had the friendliest people working with a smile on their faces behind the register even after 10pm! Kudos to McDonalds who puts the Old Mill to shame!!!

3rd Time was NOT a Charm...Will NEVER return!!!

Wheat Beer was not good...appetizers took too long & I was afraid to eat it for fear of getting sick! Staff was very unprofessional in the way they handled the situation with an appetizer, our large party was scared the cook staff would be in the back spitting on our food given the way the wait staff & so called manager behaved when a problem was brought to there attention, even while we have a child with us. So we all walked out (best choice so no regrets)! The little boy who calls himself the owner needs a lesson in Customer Service Skills though it would not hurt the whole place for that matter...yet I do not see any hope for this brewery in the future with leaders like they are running the place into the ground! So if you don't like rude wait staff who smoke outside while the smell fills the back room, nor care for the smell of sewage while you sip a cold one which if you closed your eyes would make you think you were sitting in the middle of the bathroom smelling urine...then just don't go there!!! Way better place to go in Littleton....Why does this site ask me to give a rating? I can't even give this place 1 star since I am so DISGUSTED!

Great Beer, Food and Prices

Excellent beer, brewed on site. $1 after 8pm and a dollar menu that's not too shabby. My wife and I moved from Chicago where we've spent too much money on dates in the past. Service has been excellent. Not sure how they stay in business with these deals but as long as they are in business, they'll get mine.

Does not even deserve 1 star!

I had not been to this restaurant in several years and I'll never go back! This place doesn't understand the idea of a Groupon is to get people in the door so they'll come back. My first clue should have been when they asked if I had a Groupon or coupon as soon as I was seated. From then the service went downhill, the $10 plate of calamari I ordered was not enough for 2, the Chop Chop Salad was not chopped and had only iceberg lettuce inner parts and beginning to go bad so it had orange parts to be picked out, and the tomatoes were not ripe. After we finished dinner & paid we told the waitress how bad it was. She offered to get the owner or manager, but then 10min later we were told they would not speak to us since we had a Groupon!

Unpleasant experience

Having recently moved back to Littleton, I went to the Old Mill with some friends last night. I knew it had changed ownership and names numerous times since I had last been there. I will not be returning.

The beer is okay if not a little light on flavor... at least it would have been, if we weren't all put off on drinking it after tasting the German Alt that was on tap. Absolutely terrible and improperly brewed... it had tons of diacetyl in it and tasted like dirty buttered popcorn, which to me suggests lazy or unclean brewing. I can make better beer at home.

After that, none of us wanted to drink the house beers and we were skeptical about how the food would be as well, so we all ordered burgers to be safe, so I can't really comment on the food. The menu reads like a tour of the world though, and there is no focus to the offerings.

Having decided against the house beers, I ordered a Hazed and Infused. What I got was a Killian's, so I sent it back, watched the bartender pour from the Hazed tap, and got another Killian's. I told them the taps were switched and the waitress said she'd have the brewmaster look at it when he got was in because ""we don't know how to do any of that stuff."" We asked if he was available, hoping to the discuss the infected German Alt, but unfortunately he was not. At that point I resigned myself to a poor experience and bit my lip, but honestly what kind of people are they employing? Apparently the kind that need a lesson in how to unscrew a tap handle and move it to the right tap.

'm going to be telling everyone I know to avoid this place like the plague because the quality is terrible and the beer is unclean. After moving on to a different establish, we asked about the Old Mill and were told a rumor that the beer lines are 20+ years old because none of the owners have bothered to replace them. After my experience, I believe the rumor.

Stay far away.
