Great service, great food, and great ambiance!
Steaks were so tender and everything we got from sides to cobblers were prepared beautifully and were delicious. The menu is pretty pricey but for a special occasion, the we didn’t mind splurging for such delicious food.
Great place and vibe with excellent food. Would recommend.
The food and service was great! I had the fish special and asparagus. I highly recommend this place
Was a little noisy the first half of our dinner
Everything about this restaurant is great, staff, food and location! You’ll be sure to have the same experience each time you visit.
Very enjoyable meal and service outstanding. We enjoy the remote location and unique setting.
It was quiet at the beginning then started getting louder with tables filling up around us as time went on.
Excellent, prompt, professional service, great atmosphere, marvelous food.
Just the way I remembered it from many years ago...excellent!
We literally enjoyed every thing that we ate! When our waitress gave her opinion of food items and/or suggested entrees, she made sure to describe in detail what the dish consisted of and emphasized how great it was based on her personal experience. There have been other restaurants where a waitress has done the exact same only for me to try the dish and it be a totally different outcome. Millpond Steakhouse has the best food.....better than Ruth Chris or other 5 star restaurants in surrounding areas. No need to drive to Columbia or Charleston when we have the great place in our backyard. So glad we decided to go for my husband's birthday.
Wonderful place, wonderful people, wonderful food. We will be back.
We had such a wonderful evening. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. The view of the pond was gorgeous. They do discourage taking photos or walking out by the water because there are alligators. However, you can take in the view and take as many pictures you want on their outdoor balcony. Our waitress, Stephanie, was the best. She took pictures for us and was attentive the whole evening making sure we were comfortable.
The food was amazing! We started with the duck spring rolls and the house chopped salad. Both dishes were very tasty, but the real stars were the entrees. I had the marinated rack of lamb; instead of mint jelly it's served in a savory sauce that tastes like heaven. My husband had the ribeye and he is still raving about how good it was. I had a bite of it and I agree it was cooked to perfection.
My overall take: it's expensive, and it's a bit of a drive. But, I would happily go again because the food, service and ambiance is worth it.
The staff at Mill Pond were wonderful. We appreciated Stephanie's attention to detail and her friendliness.
Perfect location. Very polite staff. Food was excellent. It’s one of the most unique dining experiences in our great state!
As always, the Mill Pond was fabulous. Decide to try something different-The Seafood Pot. What a treat! Made my anniversary very special.
Absolutely amazing. The food, service, and view was amazing! We cannot wait to come back.
It was our first visit! Service and food were both excellent!
We traveled from Columbia after hearing so many good things about the Millpond. Service was very friendly and professional,a what a nice setting we can’t get in Columbia. I would have never figured but the food was subpar at the price point. Grit were delish!! I kinda stop there and the rest was average. I sure we will try it again at some point because of the friendly,professional service.
We had a slight problem with seating, which created a little embarrassment for us, but the staff made everything right!
Every time we go to The Mill Pond we are impressed with the delicious dishes and the great service - as well as the beautiful views. Daniel is so great! He makes wonderful recommendations. We all had steaks and we shared the oyster appetizer plus we shared the fried okra and succotash. Then we had to have the black cherry cobbler. All excellent! We look forward to next time!
Went for our 10 year anniversary dinner. Everything was excellent, the food, the service, and the seating.
The food was tasty. The waitress and staff were very pleasant. The alligator added a nice touch for a late night meal.
I appreciated the late reservation.
My wife and I have dined at Mill Pond many times over the years (even before it was known as a "Steakhouse"). We've always thoroughly enjoyed our visits there; thanks, Marion and Joyce McDonald........
Best steak and crab cakes in S.C.
Absolutely wonderful as always!
Amazing food as always!! Service was wonderful, couldn’t ask for better
Great meal, steaks were perfect temp. The scalloped potatoes and the peach cobbler were amazing. Very cool ambience.
Enjoyable experience. Can't wait to go back. Service was outstanding.
Best steak ever!
What a find! I was in town for a horse show and happened upon a listing for Mill Pond. This was a truly great experience, in all ways. The food was more than excellent, service superb, and the ambiance is soothing and relaxing. You will spend some $$$$, but you do get your money's worth. I will return when in the area again.
Birthday meal for my Spouse and I... simply amazing, as always.
Excellent service and food! Most enjoyable evening.
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
Anniversary dinner. If I ever had a better steak, I can’t remember it. Great for special occasions.
A truly relaxing place to have dinner. The food was so delicious and we enjoyed our experience and will most definitely return for dinner again!
As first time visitors we were very impressed by the service as well as the quality of the food. Our overall experience was a great one.
The Mill Pond is a wonderful restaurant where the food and service is always spot on.
