Was insanely quiet for our Friday night reservation, but The Mill is always a great experience for dinner. The staff is so friendly and enjoyable, and the food is incredible. A great place for girls night out, romantic dinners, or birthday celebrations, but perfect if you're just in the mood for a great meal in a nice place.

It was very nice. We were
It was very nice. We were seated on time and had a nice table by the window as we requested. I liked the menu where starters, entree and dessert were all combined. i am not a heavy eater and usually have to take home half my order. This option was very good and i would recommend it again to friends. Service was well done also.

Great Special Dinner
As usual, our dinner at the Mill was excellent. The sea bass special was very good as was my wife's favorite, the lobster pot pie.
We will be back!

We had an excellent meal visiting
We had an excellent meal visiting with relatives in New Jersey. The service was top notch and our weather was excellent, friendly and helpful. Everyone enjoyed their meals, which were prepared beautifully and deliciously. We would highly recommend the Mill
We were not rushed and were allowed to visit, talk, laugh and really enjoy the company and our meal.

Our Anniversary dinner....
We were celebrating our 44th wedding Anniversary at The Mill ~ as we have in the last few years, as always ~ the service, food and ambience was fantastic. I had the Lobster Bisque soup as did my husband, I ordered the 2 lb. lobster, it was great, my husband ordered the scallops, he also liked his entree. I'm afraid there was no room for dessert. We left with happy tummy's.

Perfection at its finest!
We will definitely be back to this beautiful restaurant on the lake with a gorgeous bar! The wonderful service started as soon as we gave our keys to valet. The crab cakes were delicious, steak cooked to perfection and shrimp with grits scrumptious. Also, very nice, reasonably priced wine selection. Our entire evening was a delight!
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
really nice, as usual
Very nice dinner. Chilean Sea bass and lobster bisque very good. Two different salads and filet mignons were superb. Service was professional and very good. Key lime pie slice was very skimpy. Chocolate creme brulee good, but needed whipped cream or orange zest.

Great Local Restaurant
Loved the outdoor lake view. Food was great. service was excellent. Noisy in the bar area because of a TV horse race.
I would recommend and return.

The Prixe fixe is the reason
We discovered The Mill last Fall during a few days in Spring Lake. You can see my review here. We liked the good value of the 3 course price fixe menu. We ordered similar dishes to last year but were told the chef changed last October. The HUGE pork chop was both salty and had a sauce that was way too heavy. The fried calimari lacked flavor as did the mac & cheese. The desserets were great. I missed the raisin nut bread (was told they changed bakers). The view of the lake is pretty and our server Phil was knowledgable about menu. The night we were there (a Wednesday) all bottels of wine were 1/2 price which made some very fairly priced.We might go back but we aren't running next time.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The renovations to the restaurant are very nice- very modern and comfortable. The lobster pot pie was unique and very good. The other foods ordered were also delicious. The view was relaxing and very pretty- swans in the pond with pretty lilly pads. We were made to feel very welcome, not rushed. We'll be sure to go back.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
When I am in New Jersey visiting I make a point to go to the Mill. I like the food and ambiance. It is a great dining experience every time.

My husband, baby and I went to The Mill for Sunday brunch. It was our second time there. There were many yummy choices. My favorites were the french toast and the baked macaroni and cheese. My husband enjoyed some seafood and pasta. The view of the lake with the fountain is very pretty. We did not eat outdoors as it was a 95 degree day, but the scenery is lovely for anyone who wants to. We were very happy with our brunch and will return again.

A Special Evening
We made a reservation to celebrate MIL's 90th birthday, She was visiting from N. Carolina and had not been to The Mill for over 20 years but had many fond memories of times spent there. She is going back home with yet another good memory. Everything was wonderful---food, atmophere and service. Our waiter, Kevin, did an outstanding job in giving her a special evening to remember.

Fine Dining at it's best
The Mill has been our special place for the past 30 years. The food is always consistently good, service friendly, and the atmosphere quiet and scenic. Good value for a great evening out!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
There were six of us dining
There were six of us dining Saturday evening. Four of us LOVED our dishes that we ordered. Two were not as enthusiastic about their food. The menu was diverse and something for everyone!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took our 86 year old mother to this restaurant for a birthday brunch. The view of the lake was beautiful as was the ambience. The food selection was fabulous and the service was very good, Our waiter was attentive and very accommodating. Our experience was wonderful and we would recommend this restaurant for brunch.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than it looks from the curb
Driving up to the Mill, I was very concerned I had made a bad choice. The building looks like a small shopping center - anything but the quiet and quaint Spring Lake restaurant experience I was hoping for. But, once inside the restaurant, it was beautiful, the view was grand, the ambiance was nice, the wait staff very pleasant, and the key line pie was superb. All in all, a great experience!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Found a gem ...
Very pleasantly surprised for our 1st time. great wait service, outstanding food selection, excellant ambience.. My wife and I just fell in love again.... gastronomically
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM

7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place and great food. If I had to complain... it's the charge to bring your own cake and service. Had to ask several times for utensils, refills on bread and butter (which we never got), and drinks...however most of the staff are super friendly and nice, just not quick nor did they remember things.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a gem!
Sitting near a pond with the sun setting in the West makes for a picture perfect scene. Add good food and wine list and you're set for a memorable dining experience.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Make sure you get the ahi tuna appetizer,lamb lollipops wrapped in bacon and the 2lb lobster for dinner. Everything was prepared perfect
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and the service were excellent. My wife and I had an enjoyable evening.

Is it back???
The Mill has been around forever. It has been a staple in the community for fine dining. Several years ago, it was renovated into a beautiful restaurant/bar (and catering facility). For several years,the bar and restaurant were a disappointment...poor food, poor service, no activities at the bar. It was always a disappointment. This visit, had all the pieces in place! The food was great, the service was professional. The bar had live music. Now, that's what I'm talking about! Keep it going!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Mill made my anniversary I night to remember. The service and ambiance was only surpassed by the delicious food. I will be definitely going back and recommending The Mill to my family and friends.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
And will continue to do so.
Party of ten and everyone got what they wanted off of the menu
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two for two!
For a few years, dining in the restaurant was a poor experience. After an annual attempt to try to give the restaurant a chance, it was always a disappointment. Happily, this year has been different! It was with tremendous trepidation that we tried it, again...and it was a positive experience. The food was great and so was the service.
We hesitatingly brought friends with us a second time. It was great, once again!
We really hope this will continue because its a beautiful restaurant with a long history.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even if the food wasn't as
Even if the food wasn't as good as it is, just sitting on the ouside dining room with the view of the lake and the swans would be worth the trip (As they say in Frenfh, Vaut le detour)..
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very very slow to come out. It took us forever to get bread and even longer to get the apps then finally the food. I believe the built in tip for a large party was too much for the extremely slow food service. The food was appreciated and tasty but it got lost when everything came out so slowly and late.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Michael Bonner is a gem
My husband and I dined here again after a few years of not visiting The Mill. i believe since the last time we visited they hired a new chef named Michael Bonner. Chef was seen making rounds to his customers ensuring their meals were done to their liking, and he even personally served my husband and I our dinners. He checked in on us twice and made certain that our server was being attentive. I had the kale salad and a snapper dish from the specials menu. My husband ordered the beet salad and the scallops from the regular menu. The kale salad was one of the best salads I have ever had in a restaurant, and my fish was prepared perfectly with just the right amount of accompaniments. My husband enjoyed his selections equally as I did.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit on the recommendation of a friend. The experience and the food lived up to our expectations. Great raw bar. Service was very friendly. I would return again when I am in the area.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent in presentation and taste. Service was attentive but not overwhelming. It was a great experience overall from a old reliable place.

We go here for the live jazz,
We go here for the live jazz, so rare these days but the food is very good, or was this time. At times it is a bit bland for my tastes but thus time all was quie tasty. Service is friendly and attentive. The room has a beautiful setting on alike which is seen through big picture wIndows.

The Mill continues to please
What a great venue! The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is very attentive and the food is great.
If the bar had more activity (live jazz music, 70's music, etc), I would love to hang out a little after dinner.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A favorite for a good nite out
We went to The Mill recently with another couple. It continues to be a favorite of the 4 of us. Everything is well done from the greeting at the door to the menu to the service to the food preparation. The price range is reasonable for the comfortable portions served and the general ambiance is quiet for dining and visiting over dinner.

Love this place
This was the second time we were there (we go on our anniversary) and like the first time everything was amazing, food drinks service........We're going back for my birthday this year......
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great restaurant,
Always a great restaurant, the ambiance is great too
I ordered the AHI tuna very rare just seared on the outside unfortunately it came pink over cooked for my taste.The waitress apologized and was very accommodating and willing to replace it, but it would have disrupted the dinner.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The whole dining experience was great. The food was amazing. Maybe even the best place I've dined.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food wad good--lobster bisque was overly salty, almost inedible--rest of food was ok--my wife didn't like the champagne, I believe it maybe was an Asti Spumante, sweet, I liked it--we would still go back, overall a good experience
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
We were very happy with the food and the very friendly service. Staff was great!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Very Good Place to Dine
I found very good food and wine served by a very attentative staff in beautiful surroundings. Certainly in the 4 to 4 1/2 star range. My prix fixe selection (mussles, seafood crepe, and homemade cheese cake), with some blue point oysters to start, was a great choice.
Looking out at the geese on the pond with the beautiful autumn hues, as the sun set, was an exquisite sight.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went during restaurant week. The food was great. The server offered great suggestions. We also loved that they offered a restaurant week wine list for $20.13.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Mill at Spring Lake Heights is a fabulous venue. My husband and I went on our first date there more than 30 years ago and have been back for dinner many, many times.
Their Sunday Brunch is unbeatable. The quality and selection is beyond compare and the chef is very accommodating to any special dietary needs. A great place for a couple or a special family gathering.
I can't say enough good things about The Mill.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We took our daughter here for her 25th birthday (her choice). We had a party of 5 and were seated at a round table, with a view of the lake. The food, service, atmosphere were all wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion, as well as a nice romantic dinner for two. We will most definitely be returning.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Warm and Welcoming
My Aunt's 86th Birthday Celebration. The holiday decorations are very festive and beautiful. A table for 5 in the window. Ducks under the near lights, and two beautiful swans in the distance. The busboy spilled a lot of ice water on my Aunt. She is a trooper, and didn't make a big deal a out it.
Accurate cocktail service. Delicious salads all around. The Main Event - broiled salmon, 2x broiled scallops, 2x seafood far diavolo (mild please) over linguini. All wonderful.1 cheesecake (with a birthday candle), and the special "flourless chocolate cake". Both marvelous. As we were finishing up, the jazz band was starting up and they sounded great. Hope to be back is December for my Mother In Law's 96th. The Mill is a "Main Room".
