Milltown is situated on it’s own island in the Fraser River. A highlight is its two patios; one facing the Marina and the other facing the Fraser River and YVR airport’s landing strip.
The interior of Milltown Bar & Grill boasts true West-coast décor. It can be seen in the walls, which are made out of 100-year-old reclaimed local Douglas Fir wood. Double-sided fireplaces made out of brushed stainless steel contrast against the white subway tiles and massive rope chandeliers. A dropped ceiling above the bar features local wood that was torched, literally set on fire, to give it’s rustic look. “It’s rustic, industrial, nautical all mixed together. It’s really creates a cozy and inviting space.” admits Scott McVicker, Co-Owner of Milltown Bar & Grill.
Owners, Scott McVicker and Paddy Gallagher, have been in the restaurant industry for 20 and 15 years respectively. They have opened and managed successful local bars and this is their first joint venture as SPirit Hospitality. They pride themselves on the friendly staff and affordable food and drinks with water views in a laid back atmosphere. “With brunch on the weekends, lunch features every day, and entertainment in the evenings; this is the place to go for Richmondites and Vancouverites”, added Paddy Gallagher.
Today for brunch we are featuring Huevos Rancheros! 2 flour tortillas, house made chorizo, avocado, sunny side eggs, roasted corn salsa and finished with a sriacha aioli drizzle served with hash browns!
Some of you may or may not know that our charismatic manager, Sharlene, is leaving the Milltown crew to start the next chapter in her career life.
She has done an amazing job for us over the 3 years as manager, trainer, friend, leader and confidant.
If anyone wants to wish her well on her last shift, or better yet, have a drink with her afterwards, her last shift is this Friday lunch, Oct 13th. Feel free to join us in celebrating Sharlene this Friday whenever you can that evening after 5:30.
Thank you Sharlene for all you have done in building this business and this family at Milltown. You have been amazing. We have worked with Sharlene for almost 10 years and she will be missed. She will always be part of this team as she has entered all of our hearts...and found a place to stay.
