The owners of a very popular restaurant/tavern in Saratoga County say it's just not financially feasible for them to remain open in the Winter months and announced they'll be shutting down soon in a heavy-hearted goodbye on Facebook. They do however remain optimistic for a post-COVD reopening, telling their faithful customers that their best days are ahead of them.

The Mill on Round Lake has been a great place to catch up with friends, meet some new ones, listen to live music and have great food with the family for the past 12 years.  But this Clifton Park area tavern will have to shut down operations for approximately the next 4 months and their last day of business will be November 14th.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the staff posted:

"After extensive consideration and with heavy hearts, we are closing The Mill for the winter. Our last day of business will be November 14th and we plan to reopen mid March. With colder weather quickly approaching, it is not financially feasible for us to stay open during this pandemic. " -The Mill on Round Lake

In the post, the staff thanked all of their loyal customers and even offered up a glimpse of optimism excitedly announcing that they've already started a countdown to reopening.

Back in early March, I had the pleasure of hosting a GNA Blue Friday event at the Mill on Round Lake.  It was my first time there and I couldn't have been more impressed with the quality of people who ran it as well as the Blue Friday and GNA supporters who attended it. Not to mention the awesome food and atmosphere; it's no wonder this place has been such a hit for a dozen years.

Sadly, it was one of the very last station events that went on as planned before social distancing took over less than a week later.  I wish them well during the next few months, and we look forward to being back there in the Spring.
