Shortly after opening in fall of 1995, The Old Feed Mill earned the “Cornucopia” Award for Best New Restaurant from Madison’s Capital Times. The Food Network featured the restaurant calling it “The Best of Country Cuisine”. Jerry Minnich, author of Eating Well in Wisconsin wrote, “This is one of the most delightful dining spots in all of southern Wisconsin”.
Today, chefs at The Old Feed Mill continue to use the best local products, combining them in a creative way that offers delicious Midwestern comfort food with recipes passed down from generations. Do not miss the popular Friday night Fish Fry or the amazing Sunday brunch buffet, featuring numerous favorites, such as french toast made from handcrafted bread to creamy (with the perfect amount of lumps) mashed potatoes.
“We enjoyed — several times — the traditional flavors of Wisconsin at the Old Feed Mill in Mazomanie, where comforting pot roast and baked chicken soothe the soul…”
-Jerry Minnich, “Look Back in Hunger”, December 2006
“The Old Feed Mill in Mazomanie is, without doubt, one of the culinary and cultural treasures of Dane County. I absolutely love it, as I have since Dan and Nancy Viste first opened the door to diners back in 1995.”
-Jerry Minnich, 2006
…if Grandma still cooked: cider roast chicken, sweet and crisp with herbs. Pot roast and vegetables in rich gravy and so tender you can easily cut it with your fork.
