Very nice and quiet place on a very pretty scenery. My girlfriend and I went for our anniversary and it was the perfect little spot. Nice view onto the big pond with lots of birds to watch and even a gator right off the back porch of the restaurant. Would highly recommend to anyone if you are looking for a nice quiet date out with your significant other. Food is fantastic. Easily one of the best steaks I have ever had.

We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at Mill Pond restaurant. From the moment we stepped in we felt like honored guest. The view of the pond and the wildlife was intriguing. Our waiter was very knowledgable and the entire staff attended to our every need. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the side items were delicious and plentiful. The overall dining experience was wonderful. I have already shared our experience with several friends and family.

We visited Millpond Steakhouse during a road trip three years ago and vowed to come back. It was just as we remembered and is still the best meal I’ve ever had. I hope to come back again and again!

Wonderful! We took some friends from out of town and we had a great time. The food was very good and they loved the view of the lake. The fried oysters and shrimp and grits are some of the best we’ve had. We will definitely take them there again. Since we live near the area my husband and I have eaten there numerous times. It’s always delicious. We definitely recommend it.

Beth and I celebrated Father's and Mother's Day. As usual our meals were superb. Beth had the queens steak and I had the seafood bowl. Our side was the brocolli and squash casserole. We also had the duck spring rolls. When making our reservations I asked foe a table with a view of 5he mill pond and Bill McCracken to be our waiter. They provided both.
Bill is very professional and knowledgable. He always lets us know the details on the different offerings which adds to our enjoyment. We always ask for him. The Mill Pond is our go to restaurant for upper end restaurants.

It looks like nothing special from the outside and then when you walk in there are 200 year-old-cedar pillars across the ceiling and beautiful rugs and decorations. Everyone wears a bow tie. The cornbread was the size of my finger that they give you before your food comes out. The wine was amazing and my Brie was surprisingly delicious with the fruit on top. It’s full of anomilies.

Very nice place pretty pricey I was not blown away by the duck spring rolls. The steak was excellent flavor but not the greatest text her it had quite a bit of connective tissue in it. Servers were excellent very friendly manager is awesome overall very positive experience cornbread is awesome cream spinach is excellent and the shrimp and grits is a must try!

Excellent service and food we had was also excellent. My only complaint would be the lack of vegetable options for sides. They had salads but very few non-starchy cooked vegetables. Plenty of potatoes, Mac and cheese (excellent), corn options etc.

The food was superb! I had the bacon-wrapped filet cooked medium with a marsala mushroom sauce. It was cooked to perfection and the flavors together were excellent. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and it was by far the best shrimp and grits that I have ever tasted. So many flavors in the rich and creamy sauce were delectable. It was our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. The service we great, the view was beautiful overlooking the pond, and the ambiance set the mood for a relaxing and romantic dinner.

Unique Southern Hospitality at its BEST! My Husband and I celebrated our 11th Marriage Anniversary at The Mill Pond Steakhouse! Our Host was simply beautiful. And our Server was excellent! This restaurant was very nice and even though it was far pass my usual, I LOVED IT! The server made sure we were comfortable and didn’t make me feel embarrassed from not knowing “proper etiquette” for dinner. Our main entree was the 45 day aged ribeye. (Drool worthy folks!)
Everyone was dressed in their Sunday best! The atmosphere was not stuffy like some fancy restaurants. The only complaint was the REAL alligator (Louie) was shy! I could’ve watched him and the other critters forever!
Thank you Mill Pond Steakhouse for a memorable Anniversary!
