NOTE: The Nature Museum, including Mildred’s Grill, will be closed through May 13. During the closure, the Fudge Shop will be open for restrooms and some grab-and-go food. Wildlife Habitats remain open. We apologize for any inconvenience!
Enjoy casual dining in high style at Mildred’s Grill inside the Wilson Center for Nature Discovery – adjacent to the Wildlife Habitats. It’s just the spot to dine outdoors on the deck or watch the birds seek their seeds just outside our large picture windows.
This 140-seat restaurant serves hot, tasty food at reasonable prices. You can order in advance so that your food is ready and waiting at a time that best fits into your schedule. If you travel with a large group, you may enjoy your meal in the restaurant or outside as a picnic or reserve the private dining room.
Favorites include the Mile High Burger, chicken wraps, turkey and cheese sandwich, buffalo chicken salad and vegetable beef soup. Kid’s menu includes chicken strips and hot dogs. Sandwich combos include fries and a drink. Don’t forget the ice cream, slice of pie and cookies!
