Steak
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.

As USC parents, we were looking for something unique for dinner with our daughter and her roommate. Millpond Steakhouse did not disappoint. Skyler took great care of us and the meal was wonderful - some of the best steaks any of us have had. Definitely worth the trip from Columbia. The restaurant reminded us of an upscale version of one of our favorites spots in Oxford, MS - Taylor Grocery. We'll be back!

Seated immediately . Cant Remember the servers name. Appetizer 1 of lamb had to be sent back to the kitchen it was severely under cooked. Salmon had to be sent back to the kitchen it was under cooked as well even though specific instructions were given up front as to how the order should have been made. After completion of the meal the table attendant was to bag up leftover and loss the steak of my friend. He said he went in the back to look for it. He returned to the table and said it was just a little piece I didn't think you wanted it. She had only taken about 5 bites. The manager Micheal who was once a server does not seem to be able to handle the demands of such a busy establishment. Shortly there after Micheal came over and said a steak was being made it turned out it was a burnt piece of rubber . I called Micheal within 5 minutes of leaving the restaurant he said he was too busy to be bothered and hung up the phone. I asked for the owner to contact me . That has not happened and we spent well over $450.00 for a party of 6. The service and food quality has declined over the years . Spend your money wisely .

From the incredible atmosphere to the perfect service and delicious food, we love everything about The Mill Pond! And we love Daniel! He's the most professional, helpful, nice and fun server ever! He was knowledgeable about the wine selection and so friendly. He was patient to listen to our long stories, cleaned our tablecloth and went to check on the alligator for us! Amazing! The lamb lollipops, steaks, okra, macaroni and cheese plus the black cherry cobbler were so good!

We have been to Mill Pond on several occasions and our experience has always been outstanding. I had ordered a Queen cut filet medium rare. Whe the steak was served it was very dry and appeared to be well done. The steak was replaced but only after a fairly long wait. But that time I had eaten my salad and side. Needless to say this was a disappointing experience. There was no real effort to apologize or offer any dispensation for the meal. We were celebrating our anniversary and the whole experience put a damper on the evening

My steak had to be sent back twice (I ordered medium well and it came out medium twice) but the service overall was great. Daniel was helpful and the manager was very polite- he even took a picture for us and told us about the history of Mill Pond- we will be back.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Our server was knowledgeable & efficient. Everyone had a great meal: salads, scallops, steaks, succotash, fried okra, & chocolate layer cake. We will be back-go if you haven’t...worth the drive from Camden, Sumter & Columbia. A truly unique eating experience!

Don't let it's face fool you! We pulled up and thought we were surely in the wrong place. Only the other cars out front gave indication that there was something going on inside. It literally looks like a deserted building. Beautifully rustic interior, with amazing food, service and view!

It was my wife’s birthday and our son and daughter in law planned a surprise. She only thought that we two were the only one’s eating. The restaurant planned a candle and cake 🎂 surprise along with the children surprising her. Excellent service, food and attention to our needs. Don’t miss an opportunity to eat at the Mill Pond. Fabulous!!!
