Dale Barth understood at an early age what makes a restaurant great. While studying biology at the College of Charleston, Barth waited tables and worked as a bartender and cook. He imagined opening a place of his own. A dream restaurant with good, fresh, and innovative cooking. Attentive and friendly service. An atmosphere that would offer diners an escape from the everyday. Quality food and wine for adults. A fun place to be for kids. Years later, when a former J.C. Penney department store space became vacant at the Florence Mall in 1992, Barth seized the opportunity to make his dream a reality. After an extensive market analysis combined with a capital investment of $1 million, Barth hired a builder to tear off the roof and add another story. The massive height and open space offered the perfect foundation for recreating the outdoor cafe experience of Charleston. A steel two-story facade was then designed and built to flank and overlook the streetscape meandering throughout the space. The result was dramatic - very much like a theatrical set. A two-story high space with an open atrium. A back porch with glowing lanterns. A children's area with patio seating next to an old ice cream truck. An upstairs balcony overlooking the alley. A sports bar and grill. Lowcountry landscape murals painted by Charleston artist David Boatwright. All in all, a little something for everyone. In 1993, Barth's dream became a reality with the opening of the first Red Bone Alley Restaurant & Bar in Florence, SC. The restaurant took off. Lines formed and critics ate it up. The restaurant immediately realized a profit and a complete return on investment in just sixty months. Named after Barth's daughter's redbone coonhound, each restaurant offers an extensive bar, live entertainment, and a clothing line featuring the Red Bone Alley hound. The food is fresh and innovative South Carolina regional cuisine. Closely tied to the land, sea, and rivers that abound in the region, South Carolina's cuisine is influenced by hundreds of years of French, Mediterranean, African, English and West Indian cooking. Dedicated to offering his customers the freshest food possible, Barth and his staff start every day early by gathering the day's ingredients - produce bought directly from local farmers, honey gathered by South Carolinian beekeepers, Darlington County rice, freshly caught Atlantic seafood, and the highest quality aged Western beef flown in daily.

    As always, Mill Pond never disappoints. It was a birthday reservation, and they sat us at one of the best tables in the restaurant. Coquille St. Jacque and fried oyster appetizers were exceptional, and all of us had a filet cooked perfectly, with some peach cobbler for dessert. Very well trained and professional staff make this place a real treat!

    Always a favorite! The hangar steak was delicious. We tried the scallop special appetizer and everyone enjoyed that- the scallops were seared to perfection. Some at my table had the mahi and loved it! For dessert we split the hummingbird cake. It’s sweet and delicious. I’ve never ordered it before but I truly enjoyed it. It was a loud evening and on the 5th so they were very busy but they were keeping up. Any little issues were handled promptly and with grace.
