The ambiance is perfect, and the food is delicious. We live about an hour away and it was worth the drive. We look forward to coming back soon.

Once again, Mill Pond proves itself to be far and away the best place for a fine dining experience based on a love of beef. I was a bit surprised, since we had indicated on the reservation that it was a birthday celebration, that no mention was made of that fact, but ...

All in all another great outing, with plenty of leftovers for today's lunch !

The mill pond was suggested to me by a friend after our visit there I was less than impressed. My wife got the queen cut fila and I had the 16oz ribeye. After finishing our meal we both looked at each other and said we have had better steaks at long horn. Not to mention the cost savings. My opinion is save your money and go to long horn. I think the only reason people eat here is to impress there peers.

Outstanding dining experience from the time we entered on this cold rainy night. Warm greetings in a cozy, rustic, yet elegant atmosphere. Skylar provided excellent service and the other staff members were friendly, polite and efficient. The food was exceptional from the first bite to the last. Michael and Alex both stopped by our table to inquire about our experience. We can’t wait to bring friends back for special occasions.

My husband and I dined there for our anniversary and had a fantastic experience. The food was great. Service was exceptional. The only thing that bothered us was the little girl from the big party was running around crazy. But that’s not the restaurant’s fault. We had the aged ribeye, rack of lamb, and the filet as main entrees. They were cooked perfectly. Our sides were creamed spinach, scalloped potatoes, and sautéed mushroom. All the sides are shareable sizes. Prices are not bad at all compare to other steakhouses. We love the fact that the server was upfront about the prices of the specials. In most other places (ahem… Capital Grill) you have to ask, which can sometimes be awkward if you’re with a date. Overall, we highly recommend the place for special occasion dinner or just want great foods.

Overall was disappointed as we have been to restaurant for a number of special occasions and it’s 35-40 minutes drive. The shrimp cocktail was tasty but reduced to 2 pieces for each of us 4 total and enough cocktail sauce for 20 pieces. The steaks were tasty but one degree overdone. I ordered MR but was closer to medium with warm red center more to my wife’s liking and she ordered M but was closer to MW for 40 plus dollar steaks. The Mac and cheese was pathetic. It had Penne pasta which was tasteless and no cheese Sauce, just cheese on top and oil on bottom of dish. For 200 dollars plus tip, we will be on lookout for new place to celebrate our special occasions.

What a wonderful meal! Have been meaning to try them for some time. Wish I had done so earlier. We shared the lamb lollipops appetizer, and it was excellent. They were out of the cherry bourbon glaze, but the Gorgonzola sauce we chose (of the several options that we were offered) was very good. My wife chose the filet and I opted for the dry-aged bone-in ribeye. Superb! We had the asparagus side with beurre blanc and it was everything we hoped for. We enjoyed the Federalist Zinfandel and it was the perfect complement to our lamb and beef dishes. For dessert, we shared the peach cobbler and enjoyed it. The room was attractive and the service (Nichole served us) was excellent. We highly recommend Millpond.

Millpond is all it is advertised to be. Loved the food, the service was friendly and professional with an effort by the staff to make us feel at home and like old friends. We will make this restaurant a new regular dining experience.

I took my mother for her 62nd birthday and everything was lovely. Because they’re beside a pond, there were a bit of gnats at our table. They moved us to a different table prior to our food arriving and the experience was perfect! The food was delicious !!

Took my partner here for a birthday. Food was good enough. Especially the cornbread and appetizers. Steak lacked flavor. Would eat here again just wouldn't order the filet. Lobster tail was wonderful, and the lamb lollipops were good.

Our son came home for Thanksgiving. There was a customer who yelled at his wife several times, very loudly. He may have been drunk, but it was very disturbing.
