Mill Creek Pub is celebrating its sixth anniversary by honoring veterans! The popular restaurant and taproom in Battle Ground will celebrate its sixth year in business from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 11, with a special breakfast where Veterans and active duty military dine for free. The restaurant won’t be serving its usual brunch menu that morning, but will instead offer a pancake, egg, and sausage meal at no charge to veterans and active duty (military ID required). Other guests will pay $11 for the meal.
Each year on the pub’s anniversary, owner Russell Brent gathers the coins from the “wishing well” at the base of the restaurant’s water wheel and donates it all to a local nonprofit organization. This year’s recipient is Battle Ground Education Foundation. Established in 1994, the Battle Ground Education Foundation is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit community organization whose purpose is to leverage community resources to help maintain quality education for all students in Battle Ground schools. The foundation was created as an independent organization working to support local schools through programs and resources designed to enhance student opportunities. Funds raised through individual donations, service organizations, and local businesses are paid forward in the form of support for individual students as well as school projects and programs.
There will also be an online contest on the pub’s Facebook page where guests are encouraged to guess the amount drawn from the well. The guest with the closes guess will win a $100 gift certificate from Mill Creek Pub. To see Mill Creek Pub’s menu, and for hours and directions, visit www.millcreekpub.com.

Reservations are available by calling 360-723-5223 and a private room is available for large parties, as is patio seating when the weather is nice.
