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.

Great dinning experience. Offered plenty of time to get settled and look at menu and order. Food was a little on rich side for wife. Service was excellent. Will return.

Awesome service, it started from the time we walked in the door until the time we walked out of the door. The greeter, the waiter, the busser, and everyone in between was great! Not to mention the wonderful food and dessert! 10 STARS!

When I pulled the restaurant up on Google I didn't know what to expect. The saying dont judge a book by its cover is a true phrase. Me and my boyfriend love trying new places and this restaurant was absolutely wonderful. The staff was great and so

Mill Pond’s food was as always excellent in all regards, as was the service. The only negative comment relates to the restaurant’s apparent dismissal of COVID-19 concerns. Staff did not wear masks and there was no discernible distancing of tables. This is highly unusual among restaurants in this area now. Masks are the least disruptive means to stop COVID spread—they should be worn by restaurant staff in this setting.

The atmosphere, the view, the food, the bar, the waitstaff were all perfect. I think I shall not forget the tasty perfection of the cornmeal encrusted oysters. The appetizer portion was very very generous. All of the sides were huge with enough to share or take home. My Queen tenderloin was tender, flavorful and again I brought home 1/2 of it for another meal. If you want to take someone out for a special occasion Millpond Steakhouse would be perfect. I think so because I took myself out. The mixed fruit cobbler with a scoop of ice cream was homemake and just sweet enough with the berries. I cannot wait to go back.

We took our son for his 18th birthday this week. His dad and I go for date night when we get out and bring him take out, but we took him this time. As usual, we all enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere and attention to detail. Michael is an amazing manager and Daniel just takes care of you like you are family. Great food. Great people.

The food was good but there is more to an enjoyable dining experience than just good food. We arrived there at 7:15. They took our orders (there were 4 of us) and served our drinks immediately. Then we were left alone for the next 1 hour and 15 minutes! Our waitress never checked back with us. In order to get refills we had to go to the bar and order ourselves. Even then it took over 20 minutes to get a drink. The waitress said they were short staffed and this was the reason for the long wait. To me that is not an excuse. If you see you're going to be short staffed don't take so many reservations! All in all, a truly terrible experience. In addition, the prices are frightfully expensive, which is not so much a problem if the service is good. I don't like being tucked away and forgotten. I do not recommend this restaurant and will never eat there again.
