The Miller Tavern: Outdoor Summer Dining





Originally known as the York Mills Hotel, The Miller Tavern dates back to the 1860s, when it used to be a resting spot for horses and carriages on their journey through Hogg's Hollow, a popular stopover for travellers looking for lodging and a drink. Like other 19th-century inns and taverns, the hotel went through a succession of owners and periods of changing fortunes. During Prohibition in the 20th-century, the inn became a gambling den that was eventually closed down following several police raids. It was later renamed The Jolly Miller, and became a hotel and tavern until 1964. The historical landmark was updated and renovated in 2003 and after a 10-month $3 million makeover became The Miller Tavern, complete with an oyster lounge, a lovely 3-tier outdoor patio and a bright glass-enclosed heated veranda, which is very popular in the cold winter months. Offering casual dining to the North York business and residential crowd, the Miller Tavern caters to all tastes, from a selection of salads, starters and lounge snacks, burgers and quesadillas, to fresh fish, seafood and steaks.
