Diner Reviews
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch/brunch at Mill Pond House. We have never been disappointed there..the setting is lovely and the food was delicious."

  • "This was the second time I was here. I took a date here for her birthday. We sat outside on a smaill balcony over looking a lake. Very nice. The food was good although a little expensive."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My husband and I were disappointed with our recent dining experience. We had dined here a few years ago and it was not as good as we remembered. The wait staff seemed to rotate and they failed to follow up after each course to ask how the food was or if we needed more drinks. Although the sushi was excellent, our main courses were bland. I would not recommend eating here nor would I return."

  • "They should move the parking lot so the view doesn't include it. Great view and could be better if they did."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Sat down and immediately greeted by a server assistant who asked if we wanted a drink. We asked for a drink menu he said "what were you thinking of" so had to think on the spot. The table next to us was greeted by the actual server who brought them the drink menu when they asked. Once I received the menu I saw different drinks I would have preferred. Appetizers, entrees and desserts came too quickly after each other. We wanted dessert but could barely finish because were still so full. We saw server assistants more than our actual server. Our actual server was not very friendly herself. The food however was very good and the menu had a wide range."

  • "We were all so impressed with this restaurant. We try to have our summer dinner at a water-view venue each year and have been to may places, but loved this the best! We all agreed that everything was just perfect."

  • "My family dined here during the week. They were very accomodating when we had to change the time, friendly staff, excellent food and atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "This restaurant had been one of my favorite restaurants for very long time and for many years. The restaurant is well manged and well kept."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Mill Pond consistently has excellent food, albeit a bit pricey. The view is also lovely. The service is normally outstanding but this time I only gave a 'fair' because the waiter seemed to forget us mid way through the meal. We waited too long for water refills and the dessert menu."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Great view with food to match. Extensive wine list. Service was very attentive even though it was busy. Already made another reservation"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I selected this restaurant to celebrate my sister's birthday.Although I specifically requested a table outdoors on OpenTable and called to reconfirm my request,when we arrived we waited over an hour as it was a first come, first served type of situation.Once seated,we were tended to by a multitude of waiters and/or busboys.A glass of water spilled onto the table and they tried to "cover" the spill with napkins instead of replace the table cloth.When we requested that they change the table cloth, we got an attitude as if it was an inappropriate request.We requested additional lemons for the seafood tower that we ordered as an appetizer(4 quarters of a lemon was hardly enough) and we never got them.Overall,a disappointment:("

  • "We were seated at a wonderful table out on the terrace. It was tranquil and delish. What can I say, The Mill Pond House is a wonderful restaurant with the best lunch deal in town."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Dined outside, overlooking water. Arugula and watermelon salad special, delicious!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Too crowded for dinner, especially the beautiful outside area with bar. Lunch is quiet and the food is great."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food was very good. The service was ok. Their was a large party also that night. People who came after us, ordered first. When I booked the reservation, I mentioned I wanted a water view and that it was our anniversary. They tried to give us the furthest table away and they made no mention of our anniversary."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • " We were a party of four and all enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. The salads were interestingly mixed, crisp and fresh. The linguine with white clam sauce was especially good, plenty of sauce and fresh, tender clams. Everyone at the table at their fork in."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This is a great spot for lunch - we had given up on Saturday night dinners due to expense, rushed service, and crazy-loud noise level. This all changes at lunch, with the crowd thinning out and a lot less noisy. Food is very good and a lot less $$$$"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Well, I'll just say that the food was good....creamed spinach was sent back. tasted as if it were a frozen package, bland and watery...my Sole was tasty, the rice that accompanied it was so undercooked it was inedible, and my husbands Scallops were delish. But the service was horrific......there were literally 3 servers on the floor and it was a very busy Thursday night. The wait was terrible for even a breadbasket. I know that this restaurant is better than what I experienced that evening so I would definitely say to try it...and I will go back, but if its anything like that night...it'll be a last time for sure."

  • "Went with my wife for a special dinner. A 7:30 reservation turned into a 7:50 seating, and then a long wait for the waiter to take the drink order. Had to request the wine list where in most places it's provided with the menus. After the drinks came, we order some wine and our food everything went well. They have an extensive modern steakhouse type menu. The food was all very good. The setting made for an enjoyable dining experience, although the tables are tightly packed in. The malted milk ball ice cream for desert was excellent."

  • "We had dinner at the Mill Pond recently for the first time in a few years, and were disappointed to find that it was no longer as good as we remembered. Although our food was fine, service was a huge disappointment! We had many different people attending to us--one fellow brought the water, two different people refilled the water glasses, another person brought bread, then one of the people that filled the water glasses took our drink order--it was very difficult to determine who we should ask for what. We waited over an hour between appetizers and our main course, which we were told was the result of the kitchen being overwhelmed, but the restaurant just seems disorganized. It was also uncomfortably warm in the dining room."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "As always the food was wonderful I do think that staff forgot to bring our apps toa the table had to remind the waiter taht we did ot receive them. once arrived they were great. Great place to enjoy a special meal."

  • "From the minute we walked in we noted the carpet...unfortunately they even carried the carpet to the outside balcony dining area. It was a turn off. With the water view, it could be something special if decorated properly.... But the food wasn't great either. I had the scallops & they were over cooked...rubbery. Oh...and my wine glass came out with something green encrusted on it. Would not recommend the place."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Over-crowded, overpriced sub par food and drinks. $12 Cosmo was terrible. If the Mill Pond wants to be high end, it needs to have more than a scenic view. Cocktails should use fresh juices and make sure they have experienced bartenders. One good thing was the chopped salad. Chicken was overcooked and the sides were lame and not what was listed on menu. I will not be going back"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Was a very nice dinner, food & drinks were great. The only thing that was off was that the wait for outside and manager outside seemed to be a little off/chaotic. Was upset when told the wait for outside would be 45 min then as we were seated inside 2 minutes later we could see through the window that 2 small tables had opened up, and we would have been the next couple waiting for them. That was the only thing that's was off, other than that a good night! Manager inside and hostess were also very nice!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Have been here many times, food is spectacular, as is the location and setting. Only complaint would be the mandatory valet parking since I am not a fan of strangers having access to my car while I am eating. If they offered an option to park yourself I would eat here more often but I am just a nutty car guy so it may not be an issue for someone else."

  • "Have driven by Mill Pond for years and never had an occasion to dine there. This week, having theater tickets in Northport provided the perfect opportunity. All aspects met my expectations with the exception of the wait staff. Although the service was fine, their appearance made them look unprofessional. The all black clothes made them look like busboys rather than waiters. The wait staff were pleasant and accommodating, just looked inappropriate for their job. Will revisit."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We took our daughter for her 21st birthday. The food is outstanding. I got the sushi and it was so fresh. My husband got the duck he said it was great. My daughter got some steak and so did my son. They both said it was delicious. I was surprised how crowded it was for a Mon night. I cannot wait to go back!!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This place is located on the water with a nice view. They played music which I thought was nice as it wasn't that loud and it was a comfortable arrangement. The food was served and it was cold and tasteless. I personally wouldn't go their again as their are plenty of outdoor places to eat with much better food. The wait staff wasn't very friendly and they never checked up on us, we had to flag them down for drinks twice."

  • "Always have a great meal here. We love the ambience, the service and the view."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Overall, it was a very nice experience. I was disappointed with the clams oreganata (my favorite). They were broiled too long and were burned. The lobster roll was tough and extremely salty. The coconut shrimp was great. The bread was great. The service was very good and I loved the atmosphere."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have dined here before on a busy Saturday night which was oversold and essentially service was poor. This most recent visit was a (busy) Friday night and both the food and service were really good. very minor delay in getting a table and kept up to date by staff on progress all the time. Sushi/Raw bar is very good here and seafood specials/main excellent. Weather was perfect for outdoor dining and the view of the lake is spectacular. definitely will return."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "If you can wait for an outside table it is a wonderful view. The food is consistently very good as is the service. WEorth going anytime you can."

  • "Outstanding! Told our friends about our romantic dinner for two overlooking the Pond on our 57th Ann. It is a memory we'll never forget. We were treated like royalty from Sidecars to Irish & Italian Coffey."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "When we arrived we were told that we would have to wait 30 minutes for our table. I was upset and found our usual hostess. When I told her it was our anniversary and we had made the reservation through Open Table she immediately gave us a table upstairs and we were made very comfortable. They really went out of their way to correct the problem. I am a regular at the Mill Pond and I think it's a great restaurant."

  • "It is SO wonderful to go to a restaurant that can make a meal for you, the meal you WANT to have, and make it allergy-free. I have several challenging food allergies but Mill Pond House can always accommodate my meal choices and they are delicious. I never feel like I am "giving up" anything :)"

  • "We went here with a party of 7 for a birthday and had a wonderful meal. We were originally seated outside on the patio, but it was very hot and humid. Our request to be moved inside was accommodated with no fuss. Everyone's food was delicious. My only complaint would be that the wait staff was less attentive than I would have expected at such an expensive restaurant."

  • "Love the Mill Pond House - the service and ambiance is fabulous. I had 1/2 dozen oysters for an app, and the sea bass entree, we split the peanut butter dessert with my Mom for her birthday. Most beautiful about this restaurant is the incredible scenic view!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've been here dozens of times, and the food is always very good, but tonight the service couldn't have been worse. The hostess told us there would be a little wait. We had a 7:45 reservation, so we went to the bar, which was so crowded it was hard to stand there without being bumped or stepped on. The hostess came over at one point, and said our table would be next. She then came over again and said, "Do you mind if I seat this couple before you? I forgot about them". Well, what could we say? We finally ended up getting a table at 9:15!!! Then waited about 20 more minutes before flagging down our waiter to take our order. It was the worst service I've ever received. Anywhere. We wont go back on a weekend night ever again, that's for sure."
