Goodbye Tillamook, Hello Old Mill Saloon!

Oregon Restaurant Concepts, Inc., owners of the Tillamook restaurant as well as Big Red’s and the Yamhill Grill in Newberg, have closed the Tillamook location on Cornell for remodeling and a rebirth into the Old Mill Saloon, a pioneer-themed sports bar. Vice President and Partner Doug Royce says the new business will open in mid-April.

“We’ll be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner,” he says. “There will be big screen plasma and LCD tvs, pool tables and a jukebox. “We’ll be featuring all the local sports, along with lottery games and an extensive menu and a great Happy Hour,” says Royce.

The murals will stay. Royce recalls spending many hours discussing Cedar Mill history with locals such as Jack Andersen of Cedar Mill Lumber. The murals painted on the walls of the establishment were interpreted from real old photos of the early days of logging and farming in Cedar Mill.

Longtime Tillamook customers may be disappointed to find out that the entire establishment will be closed to minors, however, as many remember fondly the “old days” of taking the whole family for breakfast or ice cream. Business at Tillamook was severely curtailed during the road construction, but patronage had been dropping off for some time even before that. We look forward to seeing what the “Old Mill” will look like when it’s completed.
