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.

Mill Pond Steakhouse was the perfect place to celebrate our 30th. The service is outstanding, absolutely impeccable. The food was exquisite in taste and generous in portions.
This was our first visit but definitely not our last and we will be recommending Mill Pond to all of our friends and thanking the couple who recommended it.

I have been to Millpond Steakhouse a few times with my in-laws. I have loved it every time we go. I recently took my mom there for a nice dinner since she's never been before. We had the fried green tomatoes, chopped salad, and split the crabcake entree and filet mignon with marsala sauce entree. We got the twice baked potato and creamed spinach for our sides. We wrapped up this amazing dinner with the cherry cobbler. Our waiter, Michael from Connecticut, was amazing and very attentive and friendly. Noah was also fantastic and kept our drinks filled. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.

We have been to The Mill Pond many times.
On this occasion the service was sub par.
The waitress did not ask us about their cobbler which is their signature dessert and has to be ordered with diner.
They forgot our twice baked potato and until the end of the meal did anyone ask how things are.
Also, they served a piece of cornbread that had been cut into thirds. That was silly and absurd for a restaurant of their caliber.
The food that we got was fine but in all it was a disappointing evening.

Something has changed. Service still top notch but the aged ribeye and literally every other entree was average at best. We have always enjoyed eating at the Mill Pond so hopefully they will it figure out soon.

The Mill Pond Steakhouse is phenomenal. I took my Mother and Aunt there for dinner. We started with a salad that was large enough to split between us three. Then we all had the 8oz Queen Cut Filet which was cooked to perfection. Next time we would probably only get 2 steaks as the portions were very large and plenty enough to share. The Spinach and Macaroni were delightful. The mixture of ingredients in both made for a mouth watering treat. To end the meal we had their berry cobbler which had a nice buttery crust. Needless to say our visit was Absolutely Amazing. I will certainly visit again. Thank you as well to Michael who made our experience very pleasant and relaxing.

Our steaks were very good as was the service. The sides, however, were just average. The twice baked potato was dry and didn’t have a lot of taste and the asparagus was bland. The sweet onions were good and by far the best of the ones we ordered.
