Great experience. Our table was not ready on time, but we were escorted to the bar while waiting. Server was spectacular and we had a great time.

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.

Millpond came highly recommended to us from a local colleague. The history of the space and ambiance was great. My team and I fully enjoyed ourselves and the wildlife that surrounded the property. Delicious food and drinks — would highly recommend to anyone in the area!

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!

What a wonderful celebration we had at Mill Pond after my son's med. school graduation! It was quite a drive to get there from Columbia, but so worth it! The staff was incredibly attentive, the food was delicious and plentiful, and the atmosphere and lake views were just perfect! The manager stopped by to check on us. I cannot say enough about this restaurant! Each of us had different dishes, and every one was remarkable!

My oysters appt were very good...had crunchy shell fragments in 2. Salads were awesome. Our filet specials ok but my cooked wrong twice and both tough for a filet...not my fav and I've been going to MP for 25/30 years. No one recognized my wife's 70th BD that was on reserv. and I reminded the waitress. Place just not the same. We use to know everyone there...staff super good just not personal and friendly...to rigid. Not going back real soon.

We had a party of 7. Service was excellent! We took wine ($25 cork fee) which they gladly open. The food came out rather quick considering they were pretty busy. It was cooked to perfection and everyone in our party was completely satisfied. The side dishes were large enough that we all got to sample each one and still had some left. The atmosphere is rustic enough for jeans but the food is fine dining. We will be going back again soon.

Filet was outstanding. Just be aware that meat is cooked over a wood fire so has a smokey flavor. I happen to love smoked of smokey tasting meat.
Dark Cherry Cobbler for desert was to die for.

My Long Island Iced Tea tasted like it was poured from a TGIF bottle. My salad was described as containg brie, which is why I ordered it. Instead of brie, it contained long strips of a substance that looked and tasted like tofu. My oysters were overbreaded and underseasoned.

This was not my first visit to the Mill Pond Steakhouse. I is consistently great with service and food. This is the first time my steak was not as tender as in the past. That is the only negative in my numerous visit. My wife had a tender steak and our sides were as delicious as always.
