I've been going to the Mill Pond House for a few years now, and each time leaves me more impressed then before. The seafood is fresh, melt-in-your-mouth sweet and the view simply beautiful.

Besides the food being excellent
Besides the food being excellent (the best tuna I've ever had) the view and restaurant are beautiful. We had a reservation but to be seated outside was On a first come basis. We still sat upstairs by the window that overlooked the water. Everyone was pleased with their selections. We weren't rushed and we could actually hear each other. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful, After A Long Wait
The food and the waterview from the porch were wonderful -- once we finally were seated. Although we had a 6:45 reservation with a request to sit outside, upon arrival we were informed that it was first come first serve, and it took an hour to be seated. The outside bar was uncomfortably packed like sardines. We ended up waiting on a bench at the front of the restaurant near the valet station.

Food was great! I had the Brie Toast which was amazing as were the scallops. My husband is a vegetarian and there were 3 dinner choices where you usually can't find 1. Where the usual complaint is slow service, here it was served as if you were ordering fast food. It was a Sunday, so maybe we just had a bad staff, but it left a bad taste. The waiter was anything but friendly and seemed to be overwhelmed and rushed to take our order and the rest of the staff seemed to be set on getting us out as fast as possible, Once the meal was served, our waiter never came over to ask how everything was and in fact, we had to wave him down to order a second round of drinks. A smile would have been nice.

Very nice lunch!
Enjoyed a wonderful lunch and outdoor dining experience on Monday. Everything was perfect! This is the second visit within the last three weeks and we cannot wait to go back. And the Sushi choices!....best in the area!

We went to the Mill Pond for my brothers birthday. He had requested a place where he could see some boats. The minute we stepped onto the open outdoor deck, this request was fulfilled! The view is SPECTACULAR! He lives in New York City so this was really a treat for him. The food was great, and we had a wonderful experience. It was very busy for lunch on the day that we went, but there were waiters everywhere and we were able to get the service we needed. No one rushed us, and the waitstaff did their best to make you happy. Great place!

View the harbor
Mill Pond House is a find, it is located in a quiet exurban waterfront location with spectacular views of Centerport Harbor and Long Island Sound. The food was good, the mood was great, the quiet enjoyment of a nice dinner made this a wonderful evening with friends.

I haven't been to the Mill Pond House in a awhile. The food was amazing and the restaurant looked so beautiful when you stepped inside. The service was excellent and the overalls experience was just perfect.

Our second time here, we originally
Our second time here, we originally went because of the BEAUTIFUL view and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. Our second visit validated our original experience, the food was very good and the service was professional and attentive (without being rushed) The crab cocktail and calamari were both excellent, the filet mignon and filet tips were "steak house quality". Too often,restaurants with great scenic views fall short when it comes to food and service, this restaurant delivers on all fronts.

Nice view, great food, reliable
Always a good meal at Mill Pond. Try the specials!! That said, I had the linguine with clam sauce on this visit and it was incredibly good! Try their Japanese rolls too, they're made very well and very fresh.

This is one of my favorite restaurants on Long Island. It has a very extensive menu and everything is delicious. This time we were able to sit outside and it was so pleasant looking out on the pond. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great dining experience.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch for 4, upstairs, outside, on a little porch overlooking a beautiful harbor on a beautiful day.
Excellent food wine, service and company. Who could ask for more?
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at the Mill Pond, and we were especially looking forward to eating outside on the terrace. Although there was a slight drizzle, the awning ensured we stayed dry and continue to enjoy the scenic view. The brunch was tasty and the service was good, but the drinks were a bit of a disappointment: the Mimosas came in small glasses and the orange juice was mostly ice. Dessert was delicious.

Great Waterview Dining
The view is serene. Overall, the service and the food were very good. The veggie burgers were exceptionally tasty .The only negative comment is that one of our friends had the kobe burger and had asked for it to be medium well, but it came back a little too rare. She sent it back. It took a long time and we had to ask about the state of the burger, and when it came back to her again, it was still rare. We didn't send it back a second time because she didn't want to wait anymore.

Appreciated the superior service
One of the reasons we return to Millpond is the superior service. The wait staff is fabulous - always listening and accommodating to meet any dietary restrictions. Millpond has virtually no turnover in staff - the same friendly, professional folks have been there for years. It is comforting to walk in the door and see familiar faces and know that you will be provided with top notch service.

Good food as usual, but ...
... we had a 6:30PM reservation Saturday night. We arrived at 6:20 and were told our table wasn't available yet but would be soon. Long story short, we were seated at exactly 7PM. Previous diners at "our" table were lingering and only finally left after a visit from the manager (or so we were told). Turns out the wait was worth it because we were seated outside on the top deck where there are only three tables. The view was great as the sun went down, and the noise level was non-existent. So here's a hint ... reserve early and ask for the outside upper deck. If the weather is nice (as it was for us), it's pretty magical.

Great place for a romantic get away. Great scenic view especially if you go in the evening to watch the sunset. Staff very friendly and polite. Great choices on the menu especially for seafood lovers. I enjoyed eating the sauteed little neck clams & the Fillet of Sole Roberto.
After booking on Open Table that it was my wedding anniversary dinner was very surprised to see our dessert come out with the words Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate.
Will definately return again.

This is actually the first time that I have made a reservation at this particular restaurant and was seated with no wait. Requested outdoor dining and was accommodated. The hostess was sweet and the wait staff was very good.
8/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
From the moment our valet parked our car we were treated like VIPS at the Mill Pond House. All diners in our party of six ordered the price fixe meal. It is a joy to behold as our appetizers, entrees and desserts were presented. Service was excellent--professional and prompt. We will definitely return to this wonderful establishment!!!

I was looking for a special occasion restaurant, & was recommended here. Everything went well beyond expectations. I had called earlier in the week a & made arrangements with Amy/Jen. They offered suggestions as well as, provided a most enjoyable evening. We started with Oricchette & Lobster meat and Little Neck Clams for appetizers. The oricchette was cooked to perfection & had plenty of lobster while the Little Neck Clams were tender & fresh (no fishy taste or smell). We enjoyed the oversized Pork Chop & Sea Scallops as a main course and both were spot on !!! The house Chardonay & Pinot Grigio were very good. The staff was VERY attentive and really made the evening very enjoyable. We left very satisfied and look forward to our next visit.

In Top Ten..Worldwide
Definitely my favorite restaurant on Long Island and perhaps Tri-State area. Food is always consistently good, the service attentive without being obtrusive and the secret eating outside with its magnificent views makes Mill Pond a stand-out. Not outrageously priced and the kitchen allows sends out first class dishes. The weekend brunch is idle as the weather still lends itself to sitting outside and affords very good choices. Everyone will find something on their extensive menus to enjoy from sushi to well cooked steaks! Try Mill Pond Restaurant and Enjoy. This sounds like someone wrote them an advertisement but I am truly only a customer!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for group get togethers
Had lunch there the other day with some former co-workers. Location is terrific, food and service above average. I would definitely recommend the Mill Pond for both lunch and dinner.

this is the second time we
this is the second time we ate here in one week. we enjoyed it so much that we came back. however, our waiter was a little strange on our second visit. i ordered wine and he brought it over and then asked if he should take it back until my main course came. then he never returned after serving us our main course and i had to ask another waiter for service. other than that the food was great and i will definitely go back

A Fan Favorite
Been going here for years. Always satisfied. Except this past time, new engalnd clam soup was warm at best and lacked usual flavor.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mill Pond is always consistent in every respect. Excellent food, service, ambiance, great for a nice lunch outside on the water with a great waterview or for an evening meal. Elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. For all that you get to enjoy, the prices are very reasonable compared to others such as Prime which is overpriced and overhyped. Mill Pond has all the quality without the shallow hype at a reasonable cost. Service is excellent. Strongly recommend!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and the food was outstanding... We had the pond view and my wife and I loved it..

I have been to Mill Pond House
I have been to Mill Pond House many times. This evening my husband and I were taking friends who had never been here. I asked for a window table so that they would have a view even though it was evening. Our friends were there first and were seated at a very small table and in a terrible location, needless to say, no view. I spoke to the hostess who immediately took care of the situation and moved us to a much better location but still no view. That was understandable. I would recommend not sitting in the "outdoor" room in the off season. It has blowers which heat and cool the room but make the atmosphere uncomfortable. Mill Pond House is a classic on Long Island and when dining there, the experience should be wonderful.

We frequent Mill Pond as much as we can. We feel very lucky to live less than one mile from this great restaurant
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
More than just a great view
After living within a mile of the Mill Pond Inn for 20 years, we went there for the first time this weekend for Brunch. What a great surprise - we knew the view would be good, but the menu had tremendous variety; service was superb and food was really quite good, ranging from sushi, to an omelette, to oysters and more. We shall definitely be back soon.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We eat at Mill Pond House often and have tried almost everything on their menus. Food is always fresh and cooked to perfection!
Their fixed price lunch is a great deal! There is a great selection of appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. We will continue to frequent this wonderful place.
The view is great. We love eating while looking out over the water. A nice perk!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always have a good experience at Millpond from the food to the service. This was no exception!!
