    Wife and I had an enjoyable evening at Mill Pond House. We enjoyed the cocktails, oysters and our meals. There were many options on the menu that we said out loud, that we have to come back to try. Would definitely recommend to friends.

    Do not be afraid of cold temperatures and the outside room of Mill Pond. We ate there last Saturday night ( we go there all year long) and there was no problem asking for and getting a window table looking out over the beautiful Centerport waters. The food was outstanding as usual, my Serventi Tuna is my go-to dish. Always attentive service with Maitre D passing by often.

    No longer what it used to be. Extremely slow service - had to get up and go look for staff to get meal and again to get check. We were one of 3 tables and at some point the only table and still waited forever to get food. Waitress’s nails were so long they were in the food as she brought the apps. Never saw her again to get the actual entrees. Staff seems confused and untrained. Bathrooms were filthy and disgusting. Faucet practically fell off in my hand as I went to use it. Entire restaurant was dirty. The only good part is the valet parking is still on point. Sad to see a great restaurant deteriorate continuously over the past year. Been a faithful customer here for 20 years and this is my 3rd and last visit under the new ownership. RIP Mill Pond

    We went on New Year’s Eve with a reservation and the staff kept forgetting our orders and we were there for three long hours, understaffed and very unprofessional. We will not be returning, this place has gone down hill .

    The new menu was very disappointing. We have been going to The Mill Pond for many years and most of our favorite choices have been removed. We could have the same entrees at our local pizzeria and pay a lot less. The staff was attentive, but seemed overwhelmed, especially the bartenders, although there were a lot of empty tables which was surprising for New Year’s Eve. We had to remind our waiter to bring the proper utensils for our meal. We will not be returning anytime soon.

    They did not advertise that they would have a limited menu for Christmas Eve. The choices featured on the pre fixed menu were not appealing to us. It differed from their daily menu, which we happen to like. They did have a few choices off their regular menu, but again, nothing as substantial as the regular menu. The table next to us didn’t seem happy either. The steak offered was a beef Wellington, and the prime rib was switched to a cowboy ribeye which was full of fat. I ended up with a chicken pasta dish, when I had really been hoping for a surf and turf option. No lobster tail on the Christmas Eve menu at all. Disappointing.

    Mill Pond has a is a lovely Ambiance overlooking the harbor. The Filet Mignon was like butter with an accompaniment of bernaise sauce. We shared the creamed Spinach with was tasty. My husband and I started off with the wedge salad, which was large enough for us to split. This restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat. The staff is always attentive and they do not rush you out.

    Waitstaff was pleasant and efficient even though short staffed. View was lovely but overall the food was lacking. The fish dish was decent but the seafood bolognese was lackluster as well as the barbecued burnt tips which were nothing like advertised. The desserts were lovely and not overly sweet. With the amount of money spent, I expected a higher quality of food.

    We had a table reservation but decided to sit at the bar....we were sitting at the bar for about 25 minutes before we were asked if we wanted something to drink. Once we ordered drinks it was another 20-25 minutes before we got them...our food order never came...once our server realized this our food was brought relatively quickly...she was extremely apologetic about the entire evening....once the food came it was amazing ( shrimp tempura roll/shrimp scampi/rigatoni alla vodka and chicken)...Weve been there before...will just chalk up last night as a once in a while mishap

    We are local and visit Mill Pond fairly regularly. On our last visit the food was very disappointing with one of our entrees virtually inedible. Manage indicated that there was a new chef. Clearly he's not working out. It will be a while before we revisit, if at all.
