A word from Mill Pond Steakhouse
The Mill Pond Steak House is the only up-scaled steakhouse in the midlands. We offer the best Certified Angus Beef that is aged for 40 plus days before it is served to the guest. We have a well developed and seasoned staff that is committed to your dining needs. It starts from the time you pick up the phone to make a reservation to the time you are welcomed at the front door and lasts forever. When you arrive to the Mill Pond Steakhouse in Boykin, SC you take a step back in time. The restaurant is composed of three historic buildings established in the early 19th century. The kitchen was the old Post office, the bar was the old General Store and the main dining room was another General Store relocated to its present location. From the heart pine floors to the reclaimed lumber that was once walls of several cabins in Boykin, you realize that you are surrounded by history. Mill Pond Steak House offers rustic elegance with southern hospitality and a one of a kind dining experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "When the best thing about a restaurant is the room itself... Mill Pond is a cute venue with interesting vistas but the food is priced sky-high and the quality just isn't there. When I'm coughing up $45 for a Bone-in Strip Steak it should be 1) Prime, not Black Angus Choice 2) not defrosted before it is cooked. Appetizers were meh. Wine list extremely compact but not unapproachable or overpriced. While there are not alot of alternatives in the area if you are going to present yourself as a specialty steakhouse and charge as they do you have to deliver the same level of ingredients and preparation."

  • "The atmosphere was really good. The food was good, but it was VERY expensive. I would have rated it excellent except for the price."

  • "Excellent service and the food is always impeccable. The rustic look of the outside buildings is a bit deceiving if this is your first visit but once your seated it becomes quite clear that this is a class act. Love this this restaurant."

  • "My wife and I have been coming here for years now since we were introduce by friends. Each time we try something a little different - usually one of the specials. The only things that remain constant in our choices are the macaroni and cheese and fried okra. No matter what entree or appetizer we pick we always come back to our two favorite sides. The absolute perfect filet and always at perfect temperature - medium rare! We are looking forward to our next trip."

  • "I had a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes before being served. They were out of the appetizer my wife ordered. My ceasar salad was bland, the croutons were small and crushed and the dressing had a sour taste. I could have ordered a cesear salad in the bag from Wal-Mart. My Rib Eye steak was good however my wife's salmon was very dry. The waite staff was good. I believe my server was John. They are off the beatten path and there ad says worth the drive. No way! I could have gone to Ruby Tuesday. They are no Peter Luger or Flemings steakhouse. Not sure I would go back. Sincerely, A Steak Lover"

  • "In the middle of nowhere lies this little gem of a restaurant. Everything about our experience was top notch...food, wine, service. The steaks were better than some that we have had at highly rated steakhouses throughout the country. The wine list, although not what I would call extensive, is very respectable with some nice wines. Family-style sides are unique and delicious. And the dessert...to die for. We had the freshly made mixed berry cobbler. Service was impeccable. Overall a great experience!"

  • "Great steaks! Service slow but to be expected on Valentine's day."

  • "So what happens when you go to a great restaurant that is understaffed on Valentine's Day? Long wait, little attention given, frazzled wait staff, poor quality of usually great food - essentially you as the customer are invisible and are simply felt to be part of the problem. I suggest you only go when they are not crowded, if at all."

  • "Very good food on the site of an old country town and pond where a late Civil war battle was fought. The restaurant is in the old country store, but is set up very nicely. Great place for a special occasion. Everything is ala carte, but the servings are generous. Each time the staff has been excellent and worked intentionally to make it a great experience for us such as ensuring we had a private table on our anniversary or near a window for the view at Valentines. Great place...we'll be back for sure!"

  • "We had a super meal at the Mill Pond Steakhouse. It is upscale SC cooking in a history rich environment. Everybody will find something they enjoy on the menu from delicious steaks, to SC Shrimp & Grits to comfort food like classic mac and cheese. It is not on your way to most places, but it is worth every mile of the dirve to get there."

  • "This was my second time at Millpond Steakhouse, and better than the first time. Drove by it the first time and was taken back by what was on the inside, truly do not judge this "book" by its cover. The staff anticipated and tended to all of our wants and needs, and all personnel were professional and courteous. The aged steak was by far best steak I've had in the area, and the sides are plentiful. The only thing I would change about my second visit would be the time, get there early to see the scenery and take in the view at the window front tables. I will definitely be back again!"

  • "What a great place. There are not many steakhouses around Sumter SC and this one hit the nail on the head. This place has a great history, food is fantastic, the staff is extremely friendly and the overall experience is one of a kind. Gotta have a steak and a side of grits."

  • "I took my wife here for our 12th anniversary and it was the perfect fit. The staff were amazing and made us feel very welcome. It was a nice, quiet and laid back atmosphere. The food was absolutely amazing. My wife had the bacon wrapped filet and I had the rib eye special, both were cooked perfectly and the seasonings were exactly what I had hoped for. This restaurant is right on par with some of the more expensive places I've eaten while traveling for work in Chicago, California and even Montreal."
