No loss. It was very overpriced and staff was impatient and snobby.

I don't doubt that they closed. I've been in there twice when 90% of the tables were empty and they tell me 'there are no seats available'. They make the customers fell like we're not good enough for them.

I always liked it.
Steaks and sides were very good. Ambiance was nice.
It was an A-/B+ in my book. Too bad. I'll miss it.

There is no such things as ghosts. Just weirdos who believe in them.

Bainbridge's was great in its heyday. Great food for value prices. Then they got busy, pricey, and the quality slipped. This was a long time coming.

What will happen to "Phil from the Mill"? Will he retire to the 'still?

I'm very sad to hear that Bainbridges has closed. My husband and I went on our first date there.

Tried Bainbridges a few times years ago. Was not impressed. The service was not so good and the food was just ok. I did love the look of the place and it's a great location. Hope another restaurant takes over soon.

I love the mill environment. To bad I couldnÂ’t afford to eat there.

Sad to see it go although the food really wasn't that great. What an opportunity for a new addition to town though... function facility, beautiful building, etc. Any ideas for takers?

What about the employees that never saw it coming that had all been there for years and years? One 70 something waitress from the beginning

They should put something like a Dave & Busters there. That would be a great addition. To Sara: Tony & Ann's is moving onto Broadway Road in Dracut.

I went to the grand opening and thought it had so much promice - the ambiance was its only asset - surprised it lasted this long. Hopefully, another restaurant will move in.

It had real potential. I ate there frequently for a year or 2 but haven't gone in 6-8 years. Great room--food average--price too much. I think there are better options at the price.
